#EkPaheliLeela(Hindi) Rating: * * Sunny side up! The songs and #SunnyLeone are it’s USP. But the confused and misdirected narrative make it a pain to watch even for that! #UniversalCommunications #ParagDesai #TSeries #PaperdollEntertainment #BhushanKumar #BobbyKhan #JayBhanushali #RajneeshDuggal #JasArora #MohitAhlawat
#BarefootToGoa(Hindi) Rating: * * A well intentioned expose on abandonment of the ageing.. but based on poor reasoning and constricted convictions. It’s a bud that doesn’t achieve full-bloom for it’s faulty characters and unclear motivations. #ParullGossain #PraveenMorchhale

#DharamSankatMein( Hindi) Rating: * * OMG not another one! There have been much better and more accomplished films on the hypocrisy that causes conflicts between religions. This one is too low brow, extremely contrived ,briefly humorous and has little to offer in terms of intelligent entertainment. #CrissCrossCommunications #RaindropMedia #FuwadKhan #PareshRawal #AnnuKapoor #NaseeruddinShah #Viacom18 #TrignomediaPvtLtd
#BrokenHorses(English) Rating: * * Too Indian in treatment to be true-blue Hollywood. Has all the obvious trappings of a westernised reconstruction of #VidhuVinodChopra’s cult hit ‘Parinda’ but minus the western sensibility. What it amounts to is overwrought, teary eyed men behaving like deranged misfits. Even the scale and scope of the production appears measly! Give me ‘Parinda’ any day. #VidhuVinodChopra #FoxStarFilms #HemanshuMestry #AbhijatJoshi #JasonRichman #VincentDOnofrio #AntonYelchin #ChrisMarquette #MariaVelverde #SeanPatrickFlanery #ThomasJane
#ItFollows( English) Rating: * * * ½ This most recent cult-horror hit is by Far the most stylish, atmospheric, creative and highly effective scare fest- the creepiest we have seen in a long time. Go for it! #MaikaMonroe #KeirGilchrist #OliviaLuccardi #JakeWeary

#Home(English/Animation) Rating: * * *At its heart, “Home” is really just a kids movie, and for that purpose it works well. Colorful imagery, cute aliens that look like marshmallows, modern pop soundtrack and potty humor, make it a family entertainer of sorts. Adults won’t feel at ‘Home’ here though! #FoxStarFilms #HemanshuMestry #ShrutiSundaram #JenniferLopez #JimParsons #MattJones #Rihanna #SteveMartin #TimJohnson #DreamWorks
English Film Review
High tension, creepy horror thriller!
Film: It Follows
Director: David Robert Mitchell
Rating: * * * 1/2
Running Time: 107 min.
Quite an inventive plotline this. A sexually transmitted haunting plagues a Detroit teenager in this stylized horror film from director David Robert Mitchell (The Myth of the American Sleepover). In the wake of sleeping with a handsome stranger, Jay (Maika Monroe) quickly learns that she has inherited a most unusual curse: wherever she goes, lumbering, half-naked phantoms follow, and their singular goal is to see her dead. Desperate, Jay turns to her younger sister and loyal circle of friends, for help. In time, however, Jay learns that her only hope for escaping death is to sleep with someone else, and pass the curse on. But the pursuing phantoms are invisible to Jay's friends and it soon becomes apparent that her time is running out. Now, with death closing in, the terrified young woman will be forced to make a difficult decision if she hopes to survive her terrifying ordeal
This film has a strong philosophical underpinning about teenage sexual promiscuity and moral irreverence. Yet it manages to play like a straightforward horror flick with effectively terrifying scares and nail biting tension. This film has the power to unsettle you and make your thoughts go berserk. And for the younger generation, this is one film that’s easy to identify with because what it does is plays around with your unexpressed fears and turns it into a mammoth monster that eats away at your insecurities leaving a deep gaping hole in it’s wake. Metaphorically that is.
With a title like "It Follows," you really wonder what the movie is all about… nothing’s clear before you go in to the theatres. This second feature by writer/director ("The Myth of the American Sleepover"), works beautifully because it keeps the viewers curiosity and trepidation at a constant high. It’s a ghost story but not exactly in the traditional sense. The ghost creeps into a girl who has just had sex with a handsome boy, a stranger nevertheless. Or did he give it to her?
"It Follows" has the power to make teens take a closer look at illogical actions that could lead to long lasting consequence. And this not because of it’s premise but because of the potent manner in which it is narrated.
Jay (), a quintessentially sullen teen, learns of her haunting soon after she has sex with, and gets abducted by Hugh (). Once she is tied up and dizzy with chloroform, Hugh tells her everything he knows: Jay is the latest victim of a sexually-transmitted haunting. She must have sex with another person to pass it on…else she will be relentlessly pursued by someone she knows...or maybe it will be a stranger...possibly living and/or dead. No one can see that person but Jay can get hurt…brutally. Jay tells her friends the truth , including stymied love interest Paul (Keir Gilchrist). And they consequently try to help Jay banish whatever it is that's after her.
