There will a phase in every artist's career that they would feel they are at the "peak" of it and everything seems to work as per their desire or even beyond what they could dream of. "Surprise myself" is probably the most wonderful feeling anyone could experience, in the creative business. All this introduction is …
"Raarandoi Veduka Chuddam" is a movie that would be a remembered nothing more but as a strong bullet point on the CVs of the lead cast. No Experimentation is Good Sometimes.
My wishlist in 24 categories for 89th Academy Awards to be screened at 5:30 PM PST from Dobly Theatre in Hollywood, California.
As a part of 2017 New Year Challenge, I decided to watch as many as 365 movies during the year. First Milestone accomplished: 50 Movies.
(#33-42) As a part of Project 365 Movies series, I watched 10 movies over the last week making the total count of 42.
(#25-#32) As of Sixth February 2017, I was able to watch a total of 32 movies including six I watched as a part of BIFFES.
(#24 of 365) Colm McCarthy's "The Girl with All the Gifts" despite trying to ride Zombie Bandwagon has its own share of novelty managed well with the thrills and shrills of a horror. The lead cast's performance is the difference that brings the hope of survival from an apocalypse.
(#23 of 365) Satish Vegesna's "Shatamanam Bhavati" is a movie that ticks all the right chords for a family drama with values at its center. Despite being a regular family movie, the lead cast makes it worth watching and Anupama Parameswaran is definitely here to stay.
(#22 of 365) Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe” is a regular underdog story who beat the odds of poverty to chase the impossible. Whenever a hero emerges, it is not just the hero, the family contributes, the mentor contributes, the opportunities contribute and most importantly, the communities contribute. The movie sends a message to set up such communities which make it a possiblity for such heroes to emerge.
(#21 of 365) Alberto Rodríguez’s “Smoke and Mirrors” is non-exaggerating, a non-dramatizing story about a con man who genuinely describes the story of a man who fooled the entire country. Supported by the performances of the lead cast, the movie holds onto its position as a drama that was wrongly promoted as a crime thriller.
