Alzheimer’s: A Love Story

For a very long time love stories with a sad ending didn’t make sense to me. It was just so annoying that they didn’t end on a happy note. Over the years and after many sad endings – in books, in movies and in life – I’ve come to the realization that it is seldom…

Piper – Alan Barillaro

Piper by Pixar is an animated short film directed by Alan Barillaro. With a simple and pure storyline, and with the use of cutting edge technology, the filmmakers have produced a stunning six-minute delight which is the winner of the best short film (animated) at this year’s Oscars. Piper is the story of a Sanderling chick…

Whispers Among Wolves – Kevin Lim

Whispers Among Wolves by director Kevin Lim, has the ability to not only entertain the audience but keep them in its grip till the very end. It is generally the nature of a mystery that warrants such attention and the fact that this short film can do so as a drama, speaks volumes. The story involves…

Oscar Winners (Shorts) 2017

Apart from the debacle at Oscars, this year’s ceremony was quiet a delightful affair. But I’m most excited about the Short Films that won. In the live-action category, out of all the amazing nominations, the winner was SING. But then, it did look amazing in the trailer – since I still haven’t seen the film. In the…

The Trip (Web-Series)

The last episode of The Trip is finally out! So I decided to review the series. I binge watched The Trip last week and quickly got hooked. It has all the right ingredients after all. The happy-go-lucky web-series about a gang of girls with a star-studded cast. Four girls decide to go on a road trip…

Favorite Web-Series!

I’m a big fan of web-series. Not only because I’m a YouTube addict, but because these are just the perfect dosage of entertainment. They come in neat packets of 20-or-so odd minutes without the crazy never-ending chain of interrupting advertisements (Although YT/Google has now taken it upon itself to break this trend!) Here’s a list…

OSCARS: Shorts in 2017

The nominations for Oscar 2017 are here. And, although the jury is still out whether using ‘LIVE’ social media to announce the nominations was a good idea, I’m just thrilled that there’re new short films to watch out for! The Academy gives the award in three short film categories – animated, documentary and live action,…

Cherokee – Jem Rankin

Cherokee is an intriguing story of a mother-daughter duo who are struggling with life’s mundane but consequential trivialities. Shelley (Edwina Royce) and her mother Linda (Jane Allsop) live in our complicated, unjust world. Daily struggles involving an imperious landlord and a heedless father/husband mark their days. Jem Rankin‘s characters not only bring with them strong…

Reviews in 2017!

I’m no longer with BookMyShow where I used to review Bollywood and Hollywood movies and write about fashion, health, lifestyle and entertainment. My stint was an enjoyable one and I have had a lot of takeaways. One of the more important ones was that I discovered my love for short films. Mini Magic – yes,…

How to Lose Weight in Four Easy Steps – Ben Berman

Director Ben Berman‘s short film is based on an essay of the same name by Aaron Bleyaert. This seven minute comedy is bang on keeping with the new-year-resolution-wave. Weight loss is usually on everyone’s agenda come January. The film is hilarious. It takes the audience through four steps that are absolutely important when going for…

Chutney – Jyoti Kapur Das

A 16-minute-long short film, Chutney, marks the entry of talented actress Tisca Chopra in the dynamic stratosphere of Indian short films. Chopra is not only the actor and the producer of the film, but has also co-written the story with director Jyoti Kapur Das. Das has been a part of incredible films like Margarita with a Straw, Queen, Bhaag…
