  • Inventing Anna | Review

    A couple of weeks back I watched Inventing Anna on Netflix, friends from Amrutam had recommended me to add this show to my must-watch list and I must say the show kept me hooked till the end.

  • Is Brahmastra a commercial success?

    [read_meter] I love watching movies. One good thing which has happened post lockdown is opening of theatres.

    One of the first things Economics textbooks teach you is this sentence – “Economics is rational management of scarce resources” It’s pleasing to finally have someone in popular literature redefining this sentence, @Morgan in his books says “You are not a spreadsheet. You are a person. A screwed up emotional person” Almost a decade that […]

  • the white tiger | movie review

    the white tiger directed by ramin bahrani, featuring rajkumar rao, priyanka chopra and adarsh gourav is thriller rollcoaster – it begins with an inspiritational sort of a vibe with scenes from balram (adarsh’s) childhood – where a guest in his school recognizes him as a white tiger as someone who is there break the usual […]
