Movie Review– Jab Harry Met Sejal: Starring Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma. Directed by: Imtiaz Ali. I’ll be honest, Jab Harry Met Sejal is definitely not one of Imtiaz Ali’s greatest films but I would certainly not agree with all the reviews of the film critics going viral on the internet. If at all, in my take I would rather contradict than align with the views of the veteran film critics. For starters, if King Khan and Imtiaz Ali are going to come together not only as actor and director but as writer/director and producer, then it is insane to even…

Reviewed: RANGOON (starring Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor & Saif Ali Khan)

Directed and partly written by Vishal Bharadwaj, Raangoon is a welcome experiment this year, especially after all the clichéd ridicule that hit the big screens in 2016.

But then towards the end, the masala and the make-belief gets so overdone that all the magical impact of the previous realism is utterly ruined.…

This is especially notable as none from the audience would have ever personally related to the lives of the differently-abled. Although it is a…
