Dora Movie Review: A Tale of a Lady with a Swag, a Haunted Car and a Dog

Before watching Doss Ramasamy’s Dora, I happened to watch the sneak peek of the film and I must say that it really helped me take the decision of going ahead and watching the film. I say this because for some strange reason there was a lot of negative feedback about the film right from its day of release. I was of course initially feeling let down, having expected to see a quality horror film on the lines of a Maya after watching the promos. Of course the comparison to Maya is thanks to the presence of Nayantara, the common factor between these 2 films apart from the genre. But what did the sneak peek show me? Pavalakkodi (Nayantara) and her father Vairakannu (Thambi Ramaiah) are at a used car dealer’s place, having decided to go in for a suitable car within their budget so that they can use it as a call taxi.Continue reading “Dora Movie Review: A Tale of a Lady with a Swag, a Haunted Car and a Dog”

All About “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”

With MUD MUD KE NA DEKH (#MMKND) i did not want any barriers. It was a no strings attached project all along. My focus was to jus go out there & make it the way I had envisioned it on paper. Little Duck Productions backed the project monetarily and my production house MOR Films handled the entire Execution & Talent Onboarding. The lead male actor, Mayukh Ray was extremely kicked about doing it as soon as he read the script that was lying in my script vault bank all written & ready for a good 16 months. He nudged me to the point of convincement of initiating the project immediately. Sulagna Panigrahi & I met up over coffee for a narration and she digged the story instantly too. Sharda Nand Singh, who i already knew was a good choice for the character he essayed in the film, Mayank Adlakha- my Man Friday & Joy Banerjee handled the Sound Design front with great sensitivity. Also, Akul Gilche, Sundeep Hemnaoni & Dheeraj Govindraju were very instrumental in bringing this film to celluloid by their invaluable contribution in varied departments.Continue reading “All About “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh””

Don’t Breathe (2016) Movie Review: Don’t Miss It

Right off the bat, I’m not a huge fan of the horror/thriller genre. Although I’ve seen the Jason series, gone through most of the Freddy Kruger list and even convinced myself to see 5 of the 7 Saw flicks, ll to stay with the list and less fun-tertainment.Continue reading “Don’t Breathe (2016) Movie Review: Don’t Miss It”

Don’t Breathe (2016) Movie Review: A Breathless Experience

Don’t Breathe (2016)

Directed by – Fred Alvarez           Written by – Fred Alvarez, Rodo Sayagues

I have always held the belief that a good horror movie is one that has the ability to shit the pants out of the audience through a combination of the 3 S’s – situation, settings, and suspense, without the need to rely entirely on gore and jump scares (while there has to be violence, the audience shouldn’t be reacting just to the nature of violence, rather the circumstances that lead to it). Classic horror films like The Haunting, Les Diaboliques, The Omen (not the over the top remakes of these films) and even initial slasher films like Halloween had that quality.Continue reading “Don’t Breathe (2016) Movie Review: A Breathless Experience”
