Movie Review (Highway): The Eternal Feminine Victimhood

A movie works best when it is not only unpredictable but also attempts to break stereotypes.

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

I sometimes thought the theory of Karma was all nonsense and created to give solace to people to accept tragedies in their lives gracefully, but this movie “Madaari” by Nishikant Kamat starring none other than an actor par excellence aka Irrfan Khan made me rethink my position on the theory of Karma and I would be inclined to take a position that the theory of Karma does exist.
