Movie Review (Tanu Weds Manu Returns): Stark realities of society bare-chested

Mostly every romantic movie ends with a happy ending – “Boy and girl get married to each and presumably live happily ever after”. Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR) is an exception to this hot-and-spicy-served-on-a-platter-sizzler brigade as it begins with marriage and shows the true picture marriages go through as the second scene of the movie is a mediation session between the couple “Tanu and Manu” trying to “reconcile” their irreconcilable differences as husband and wife after 4 years of marriage.

Movie Review (Bullett Raja): The lofty expectations that befall upon the violent male world

  • VIAdmin 

ऐसे वैसे नहीं है, औरतों कि इज़ज़त करते हैं (I am not just like that, I respect women). When you hear this dialogue coming from a man who does not respect and kills humans (males) just like that and then utters the same dialogue that he respects a particular human (female) because she is a female, then you know there is something terribly and deeply wrong in the societal setup.

Movie Review (Lootera): The dangerous path of Protector Role that men tread
