The Boys Review – Amazon Prime Video

Full credit should be given to the makers of this dark political satire for being so blunt and balanced in telling about the business and political culture of the US. This is something that makes me a great fan of Hollywood and European Cinema. Be it the silver screen or the small screen, the storytellers are not afraid, ashamed, or prejudiced in showing the truth about their socio-political landscape irrespective of who or which party is in power at the moment.

Hindi Medium – Movie Review

Irrfan Khan is outstanding and Saba Qamar has complimented him well. Deepak Dobriyal is very good at some places too, but his performance is nowhere close to Pappiji in Tanu Weds Manu. Amrita Singh is totally wasted in Hindi Medium. I was so excited to see her again after her superb performance in 2 States but she’s under utilized. The only thing that works and boy! how fabulously it works for the film is Irrfan Khan. His simple and earnest character is so realistic that it’s hard not to fall in love with him. He also has some great dialogues that he delivered perfectly. His speech at the end had something missing and didn’t click as much as it should have but full marks to his performance.
