Rim of the World(2019) Netflix Movie Review:

I liked the movie and felt it was decent one.This one is a fun sci-fi movie about four kids who are on a mission to save the world from an alien attack. The cast was perfect and the sepcial effects were pretty good. Don’t expect this one to be like the ID or Stanger Things Series on Netflix and you will enjoy it. Also this one is a reminder of the classic movies which we have seen in the 70’s.This movie is directed by MCG of Terminator Salvation. It is a good movie from start to finish.

Ignore all the criticism on this movie, watch it and decide for yourself.

It was a good Sunday afternoon movie for me. It is pretty decent movie and it strays away from logic, but that is fine as this one is based on fiction.

My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.



Murder Mystery(2019) Netflix Movie Review:

 The script of the movie was quite good which deals with two aspects: While it deals with murder mystery and the second aspect is the marriage issue between Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. It is nice to see these together in a movie which has become rare now. Thoiugh the plus point is the murder mystery suspense that runs through the movie. The other good thing is the glamorous and exotic setting across Europe and aboard a nice Yacht that adds value to the movie.

The movie has Agatha Christie kinda mystery running through. As usual the chemistry between Adam and Jennifer is awesome. It has some pretty decent action scenes too.We don’t get to see movies like this any more, so it is fun.

My rating is 3/5. Recommended.


I am Mother (2019) Netflix Movie Review:

A teenage girl is raised underground by a robot “Mother” when human race has reached extinction. But their unique bond is disturbed when a stanger also another human being arrives.I felt the concept was rather unique. I mean the bonding between a very intelligient AI and a girl.

The movie is more of use your own imagination sort.The production design of the movie is really good. Clara Rugaard who plays Daughter, outshines Hilary Swank with ease.While the robot who plays mother and is voiced by Rose Byrne is mysterious and you start wondering what Mother’s actual intentions are?

Australian director Grant Sputore does decent job in his debutant venture. This one has decent pace, isn’t boring and is thought provoking science fiction thriller. I liked this one and would recommend it. My rating is 3.5/5.


Chopsticks (2019) Hindi Movie Review:

 It has been quite sometime since I last saw Abhay Deol’s movie. Mithila Palkar is natural and gets into the skin of the character.Abhay is wonderful too. It is also refreshing to see Vijay Raaz as Falyaaz Bhai. The goat named Bahubali is another character who is important to the story.The story is about a gifted but insecure young woman played by Mithila when she goes for a con played by Abhay who calls himself “The Artist” to get back her stolen car.

This one was one of the betetr movies on Netflix. Hope Netflix makes more such movies. I enjoyed this movie and some parts made me laugh and smile. The good thing about this movie is that it is a fresh breathe, though story is pretty simple.

Mithila’s action as an innocent girl is top notch and funny to watch, Abhay deol’s and Mithila’s small moments of chemistry are heart touching even though they aren’t romantic. I had seen one page ad in Times of India newspaper of previous day and decided to see it.It was worth my time and I even suggested my wife to see it.

All in all, a good one time watch. My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.



Sarkari Hi. Pra. Shaale Kasaragodu (2018) Kannda Movie Review:

I finally saw this wonderful movie directed by Rishab Shetty and had a nice time. Kasargodu is a place where Kannada speaking people are treated as minority. It is a treat to watch so many quirky characters in this town.

The music and the visuals add on as a plus point. Anant Nag is a legend and he proves it in this role once again. There is a Kannada medium school in Kasaragodu which is shut down by greedy government officials, which leads to agitation. Thus comes Anant Nag from Mysore to fight for them.

The movie picks up from his entry onwards. The social message in this movie could be relevant to any town in the border of any state in India. I ended up liking this movie.

My rating is 3.5/5.


John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) English Movie Review.

I had seen the previous two parts of this series and was eagerly waiting for this one. Like its prequels, this one doesn’t dissappoint a bit when it comes to action. This is one of the best action series starring Keanu Reeves after The Matrix series.

This movie is fully loaded with terrific action from the word go. The fights are as creative as it can get: with different guns, Knives, Books, Swords, Dogs and again, more guns. Also there are bikes and horses too.

The movie offers non stop action for almost 2 hours and 10 minutes. The film also brings new characters. One of them is Sofia, played by Halle Berry. Halle Berry does a good job.

Action movie lovers will love this one. The action choreography is epic and creative. Now, there seems to be John Wick 4. Chapter 3 is the best chapter of the John Wick franchise.

My rating is 3.5/5.


Chitralahari (2019) Telugu Movie Review:

My cousin Veena recommened this movie to me.Vijay (Sai Dharam Tej) seems to be overshadowed by bad luck that doesn’t seem to live him like his own shadow. It is a story about a person named Vijay who wants to achieve something in life, while life seems to keep knocking him down at the every step.

He has an optimist father played by (Posani Krishna Murali) who believes in his son more than his son could even believe in himself. Even his love Lahari (Kalyani Priyadarshan) walks out of his life taking her childhood friend Sweccha (Nivetha Pethuraj)’s advise.

Chitralahari is a well-intentioned film that tells a story about an underdog who doesn’t give up till he reaches his goal. The downside is that it turns into a melodramatic story, but it ends well. The best thing is there is no forced romantic songs to interrupt the story. Sai Dharam Tej delivers one of the best performances of his career. Kalyani Priyadarshini as the confused lover is perfect.

I liked Nivetha Pethuraj’s performance more.Posani Krishna Murali shines in father’s role. Sunil and Vennela Kishore are fine with their comic roles.

My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.
