This summer if you want to show a caper to your child, it had to be Nil Battey Sannata. ..what a beautiful movie, am just in love with this inspiration by Ashwini... a tale of a mother's unwavering wish and dream that her daughter creates meaning in her life is filled with subtle humor and brilliant writing.. Swara Bhaskar and the protagonist is the soul of this movie... don't miss it... it will only inspire you..

Just one word for this gem... Bliss
Subodh Bhave deserve such a applause for creating this romance with music... This will stand tall like an Oscar through ages for its melodies.. absolutely priceless... thank you Mahesh Kale, Shankar Mahadevan, Rahul Deshpande, Arijit Singh, Jitendra Abhisheki -- the unsung heroes of this movie... whistles and whistles...

Kapoor and Sons is Unadulterated dysfunctional spontaneity at its best... rarely I have seen movies that commercialize socially discomforting subjects so well. Most of the time, the production house would sugar coat and dilute subjects fearing consumer backlash. . However, Shakun Batra picks up speed right from the word go and kept it's grip to the end. The ensemble is stellar - the writing is kick ass, direction is spot on, music compliments .. two thumbs up

Pen Power all the way in SPOTLIGHT. ... the true story of how a team of investigative journalist rocked the mighty Boston Catholic church on involvement of priest in paedophilia. Loved the subtle narrative and the restrained performances of the stellar cast.. highly recommended.

Invictus is brilliant -- what an amazing peek into Nelson Mandela's mind... "one team,one nation" as a theme was his push to use Rugby as a nation binder which beautifully worked for him. Invictus gives you an lovely insight into Madiba's mind on how he so wanted coxistence post the apartheid era. Loved this Clint Eastwood offer.. one of my all time favourite directors. If you haven't seen this, you must inspire yourself.
Let me leave you with the poem that gave him the courage for the 27 years he was behind the bars....
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
- William Ernest Henley
