Movies

This is a list of all good movie/series, so even a 1* is worth your time and 5* is cannot afford to miss it. This rating is per my opinion.

Jalsa(2022) (Netflix)4*

I was bored and flipped the Netflix, stumbled upon Jalsa, starring Vidya Balan, I was like, not yet another social-feminist-Vidya Balan movie. But then again, I had reached the end of the Internet, AGAIN. I would have watched Gangubai had it been available; Alia Bhatt looks and acts the role, even though I have heard the movie has no grit. The pace of the movie is slow but it is not dragged. Every character has it’s place in the movie, mostly female dominating. The movie reminded me of Crash(2004) where peoples lives are intertwined, but nothing like Crash. Finally the movie takes an ending that of Indian emotions as opposed to what I had thought would have a Hollywood ending. Very well made movie, addressing various issues of the society.

Beckett (2021) (Netflix)4*
This is Run Lola Run, John David Washington(Denzel Washington son) style, don’t miss it. I would have never imagined the landscape of Greece a country in Europe.
