    J Jagannath: Horror of horrors

    Babak Anvari's Under The Shadow is a supremely scary movie set in the 1980s when the Iran-Iraq war was at its raging best

    J Jagannath: Strange & insecure

    The just-released 'Doctor Strange' is quite possibly my most favourite movie made out of the Marvel source material

    Film festival amid war

    Days before the Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival was to kick off, Karan Johar came out with a 117-second video appealing to a fringe nationalist party to allow a smooth release of his upcoming Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. This earnest, albeit ...

    Gifts from a film fest

    The former, a French-German-Belgian psychological thriller starring Isabelle Huppert, is based on the rape-without-tears bestseller Oh... by Philippe Djian

    Best of the best

    I have a few reservations considering how documentaries don't find a mention and neither does a single Indian movie

    Blind assassin

    Don't Breathe has so much craft it retroactively makes nearly every other recent studio horror movie look even lazier

    Through a glass darkly

    Based on two short stories by Waryam Singh Sandhu, the director connects two nearly disparate stories to show the grisly paranoia that gripped the state in 1984 during the anti-Sikh riots

    Great Indian male gaze

    The unsettling gaze of the Indian male towards women in the post-2000 cinema has been very one-dimensional. Apart from Selvaraghavan, who has an original albeit borderline misogynistic look writ large on his protagonists' faces, almost no other film ...

    Kabali film review: Weapon of mass attraction

    J Jagannath comes away from a 6 a.m. screening with mixed emotions about Rajinikanth's latest vehicle for his larger-than-life persona

    GoT bored

    For all the glacial pace that the current season had to offer during the first eight episodes, the following couple of them just went berserk

    Trip of the year

    At a time when priapic sex comedies are ruling the roost in Bollywood, Udta Punjab is nothing less than a fresh blast of oxygen

  • 11-Jun-2016 | J Jagannath

    Regional cinema, ahoy

    I would gladly join the ship-breaking industry in Alang and risk dying of asbestos poisoning instead of watching The Nice Guys at any Indian cinema. This, despite the raving reviews in the West because our generation's cultural arbiter-in-chief, ...

    Sairat: A brave new film

    This is the kind of a film we expect from Ken Loach, Mike Leigh, Dardenne brothers, maybe even Bela Tarr

  • 14-May-2016 | J Jagannath

    Time travels

    It's got the perfect balance of everything that makes a mainstream movie a critical success as well

    Delusions of grandeur

    In Maneesh Sharma, Shah Rukh found his own version of Leni Reifenstahl who would deify him to no end

  • 16-Apr-2016 | J Jagannath

    Rage machines

    Anger is a primal emotion and an unfettered version of it usually puts off the person at the receiving end. I watched a couple of movies recently that threw coruscating light on what if the person on the opposite end is a beloved/spouse who has no ...

    On-screen strategy

    In Eye in the Sky, Gavin Hood gets the geopolitics right down to a T, a necessity most mainstream film-makers willfully ignore

  • 19-Mar-2016 | J Jagannath

    Wow-inducing cinema

    Todd Haynes' Carol is a bewitching piece of cinema told with subtleties

    Gender reconstruction
