Book Review: SON OF A WITCH (2005)

Book Review: SON OF A WITCH (2005)

So, 10 years after the sequel to the original WIZARD OF OZ story, comes the sequel to that, as SON OF A WITCH. A story that covers events right after the original WIZARD OF OZ, SON OF A WITCH runs out of steam pretty quickly, and that novelty wears off…

Movie Review: …YAHAAN (2006)

Movie Review: …YAHAAN (2006)

Probably one of the best Indian films depicting a war ridden Kashmir as the backdrop, YAHAAN is also horribly underrated. A must watch for anyone that’s in love with Kashmir. Also: Pardon my naivete in this review when it comes to thoughts on love and all. I was super young when I wrote this.

Movie Review: KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY (2010)

Movie Review: KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY (2010)

KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY is an utterly dull movie that continues long after it should’ve been over. A non existant story that drags on to the point of wanting to blind oneself.

TV Series Review: VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 1 (2009)

TV Series Review: VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 1 (2009)

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES would’ve been a great show for a younger audience for whom TRUE BLOOD might be too gory and graphic and adult… but it’s not. At all.

Comic Book Review: ALL STAR SUPERMAN (2005) (Part One)

Comic Book Review: ALL STAR SUPERMAN (2005) (Part One)

Hailed as one of the greatest Superman stories ever told, Grant Morrisson gives us the last Superman story ever told… in ALL STAR SUPERMAN. Unlike a reboot or re-telling of an origin story, Morrisson takes concepts and themes already established in the decades of Superman mythos, and enhances them in his own… unique and eccentric way.

Movie Review: BLACK (2005)

Movie Review: BLACK (2005)

Another unnecessarily long winded review from my writing days, years ago. This one is about the Indian Film BLACK. Good luck to anyone who wants to go through it…

Movie Review: 7 KHOON MAAF (2011)

Movie Review: 7 KHOON MAAF (2011)

Vishal Bhardwaj has done some of the best films to come out of the Indian Film Industry ever. His most recent movie comes as an an exhibition of Priyanka Chopra’s talents in the form of 7 KHOON MAAF (SEVEN MURDERS FORGIVEN).

Movie Review: HOTEL RWANDA (2004) – A Tragic Episode In Human History

Movie Review: HOTEL RWANDA (2004) – A Tragic Episode In Human History

The Shah gets passionate and bitter simultaneously: “Within this ‘Brady Bunch’ togetherness woven through technology in our society, we somehow seem to be completely and utterly ignorant to crimes happening in nations beyond our reach.”

Movie Review: UNSTOPPABLE (2010)

Movie Review: UNSTOPPABLE (2010)

UNSTOPPABLE was seriously a lackluster movie that had no beginning or end. The lame-ness of the film itself is pretty unstoppable given the plot and character development.

Movie Review: SEHAR (2005)

Movie Review: SEHAR (2005)

Another oldie. It’s been so long since I saw this movie, I actually almost forgot about this review. But I wrote this as well, like 6 years ago. Thankfully one of my shorter pieces from back then. Still contains a lot of irrelevant background info though. Bah. Old Shah (younger Shah) is so embarrassing.

Book Review: WICKED (1995)

Book Review: WICKED (1995)

I was as big a fan of THE WIZARD OF OZ as much the next film-geek. So I was excited to read a sort of prequel to the overall story of THE WIZARD OF OZ that came in the form of WICKED. And I wouldn’t given a shit at all about the new Sam Raimi movie but now… *squeals*

Movie Review: IQBAL (2006)

Movie Review: IQBAL (2006)

A story of a linguistically handicapped teenager, IQBAL is about dreams, ambitions and one’s determination to achieve what might be out of reach.

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 3 (2007)

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 3 (2007)

Season 3 of SUPERNATURAL really develops its own universe, exclusive to the show with a hoarde of supporting characters, recurring storylines and also what I would consider to be the BEST cliffhanger of any series that I’ve seen so far. I mean its BIG… like, hell freezing over big…

Movie Review: THE GHOST WRITER (2010)

Movie Review: THE GHOST WRITER (2010)

I will watch anything by Pierce Brosnan. That’s a fact. Same goes for Roman Polanski. Together, along with Ewan McGregor they do the eerily suspenseful… THE GHOST WRITER

Movie Review: KYON KI… (2005)

Movie Review: KYON KI… (2005)

Considering Salman Khan has been hugely successful recently with DABANNG and is coming out with another (apparently) funny philum, READY… I thought it’d be cool to take a look at an old review of one of his more ‘serious’ films: KYON KI…

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 2 (2006)

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 2 (2006)

Sometimes, certain shows take a while to grow and build, and find a certain niche for itself within the television audience, but Season 2 of SUPERNATURAL kicks off the show to a great start and ends with an awesome explosion of demonic goodness. (see what I did there?)

Movie Review: PATIALA HOUSE (2011)

Movie Review: PATIALA HOUSE (2011)

PATIALA HOUSE is very unique and original, and is probably the best Indian sports movie that I’ve seen set in contemporary times…

Movie Review: RUNNING SCARED (2006)

Movie Review: RUNNING SCARED (2006)

This is a ‘review’ I wrote years ago on RUNNING SCARED… and it seems I was easily impressed in those days… such is youth.
