    Forest of Bliss

    फिल्म की शुरुआत मशहूर अंग्रेज़ी शायर येट्स की दो पंक्तियों से होती है; “Everything in this world is eater or eaten. The seed is food and the fire is eater” - यह पंक्तियां येट्स के द्वारा की गई उपनिषद की व्याख्या का हिस्सा हैं ।

    इस तरह की फिल्में मुझे धर्म संकट में डाल देती हैं, इसका एक पहलू है कि में भला क्यों एक फिरंगी कि नज़रों से अपने देश की बदसूरती का तजुर्बा लूं ? वहीं दूसरी ओर…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    It was towards the end of my first term in 2014, I took the bus from outside my home near Battersea bridge and went southwards to the Wandsworth shopping centre (a dismal mall).

    ★★★★½

    Fantastic. The finest horror film to come out of India in years, there's some fine craftsmanship on display here whether it's the chilling atmosphere, the phenomenal cinematography or the production design. Even the poorest parts of the film are well above average and the attention to detail and the ease with which mythological elements are weaved into the story are excellent.

    The screenplay and pacing are great but Tumbbad sometimes needs a better lead than Sohum Shah, although he still does an acceptable job. The beginning and the closure will make sure you leave the cinema satisfied.
