Shreelancer Movie Review: A Freelancer’s Quest to find his Moorings

One keeps hearing about freelancing and its associated risks as well as benefits all the time. All of us would certainly know of someone or the other who is either a freelancer by choice or by default. Perhaps some of us have even gone through a phase where one has ended up freelancing just to get an idea of what it is all about. I have had my own tryst with freelancing, a journey which even led to this platform called MAM (Mad About Moviez) being set up in the process. In my case it all began when I was bored with my regular corporate job and contemplating how to go about plunging full-fledged into my area of passion. Yes there have been ups and downs in the process, often even questioning my sanity and my decision but the persistence has really helped. No, this is not a post on my freelancing journey or anything thereabout, but pardon my indulgence as I couldn’t but help taking an inward look while watching Sandeep Mohan’s Shreelancer.Continue reading “Shreelancer Movie Review: A Freelancer’s Quest to find his Moorings”

Angry Indian Goddesses Movie Review: The Ladies on a Roll!

 Normally when you are going through tough times you may get into a shell, not wanting to reach out even to people who really matter to you and care for you. But when it’s a moment of great joy and happiness you don’t usually do that right? Generally by and large we like having people around us during our special moments, people who really matter to us.

We only tend to think of naughty bachelors/bachelorette parties when it comes to weddings when friends are coming over, but isn’t there something which goes beyond that? Why am I mentioning all this? Well when I’m about to share my take on Pan Nalin’s Angry Indian Goddesses there’s no way I can start any other way :).Continue reading “Angry Indian Goddesses Movie Review: The Ladies on a Roll!”

X:Past is Present Movie Review: Experimental and Interesting

Deep down a lot of us are romantics right?And one of the things that excites us the most is to get nostalgic over our romantic tales,some great,some not so great.Some funny, some tragic, some silly, some plain embarrassing. And in case one feels he/she hasn’t had a colourful life, you may still want to feel or pretend otherwise. There are so many topics that we talk about and things that we tend to do but often get bored of, but falling in love or reminiscing about an old romantic tale is usually not something that one ever gets bored of, well normally at least 🙂 . That’s why it’s no surprise that films like Cheran‘s Autograph (2004) or the recent Malayalam blockbuster Premam have done well. After all these films have an instant connect with our basic psyche, also this perhaps explains why I’ve been looking forward to X: Past is Present or X The Film as it was called earlier.Continue reading “X:Past is Present Movie Review: Experimental and Interesting”
