Review: Minions would have been better if it was Minion-sized

Review: Better Call Saul is what TV dreams are made of

Better Call Saul keeps your adrenaline levels high, says Paloma Sharma. There’s a whole lot of history behind this one. A spin-off of the multi-award winning, critically acclaimed Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul picks up after the events of Breaking Bad and follows the adventures of James ‘Jimmy’ McGill, who goes by the alias of Saul Goodman. Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), a once small scam artist, is now a small time public defence lawyer who is struggling to make ends ..., 1 month ago

Review: Fargo will make you revisit your demons

Fargo is intense and dark and raises more questions than one would usually be comfortable with, says Paloma Sharma. Screenwriter Noah Hawley, who gave us Bones, adapts the Coen brothers’ 1996 critically acclaimed hit film, Fargo, of the same name and brings it to small screen audiences on Colors Infinity channel. Fargo stars A-list actors such as Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman and has already completed a season overseas with a second season scheduled later this year. In ...

Review: Jaanisaar is tiring to watch

Jaanisaar will test your patience, cautions Paloma Sharma. Muzaffer Ali’s Jaanisaar is a cautionary tale of a film with a half-baked script and pretend patriotism.The film opens with Naseeruddin Shah's voice reading aloud the contents of a letter that apparently contains Lord McCaulay’s take on how India’s culture and education system must be destroyed if the country is to be enslaved.Next, one watches a wandering poet/fakir/random dude with long, white hair (Ali ...

Review: The Big C is a must watch

There's really no reason why one should not watch The Big C, says Paloma Sharma. What if all you had was a year to live? Would you be angry? Sad? What you do before you're gone? What would you finish? Would you tell your family and friends? Would they be able to deal with it? Or would that change your life irreversibly, not necessarily for the better? These are some of the thoughts that run through Cathy Jamison's (Laura Linney) head when she learns that she has been diagnosed with Stage IV ...

Review: Forever looks like everything you have seen before

Forever is tiring to watch, says Paloma Sharma. Writer/producer Matt Miller, who has worked on shows like Las Vegas and Chuck, brings to small screen audiences the tale of a man who just cannot die. Oh, and he’s a medical examiner too; in New York, of all places. Looks like you’ve seen it all before? You might have.The show, all 22 episodes long, is bound to break a few hearts considering there is no second season to look forward to. ABC cancelled the show after one season and that, ...

Review: The Musketeers is a gripping masala entertainer

The Musketeers may not be original but it's engaging, says Paloma Sharma.Alexander Dumas' 17th century novel The Three Musketeers has been adapted in several formats a lot of times over the years.  With every name that is added to this list of adaptations, it becomes increasingly difficult to interpret the story in a different way. Adrian Hodges' version for BBC One is entertaining even though it doesn't exactly bring anything new to the story. Of the first three episodes of The ...

Review: The Flash will have you hooked

The Flash is not your average superhero TV show, says Paloma Sharma. The Flash made its debut on Indian television on Colours Infinity recently. The Arrow spin-off follows the journey of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) from the age of 11, when his father is wrongfully convicted for his mother's murder, to age 25, when he is struck by lightening and becomes a mask and latex-clad sporting hero. The first episode opens with Barry rushing to work, which, in a way, is symbolic of his general attitude ...

Review: Pixels is a complete waste of time

Pixels could very well be the most unremarkable Hollywood film of the year, says Paloma Sharma. Have you ever wondered what would happen if old video games came to life, tried to destroy the world and Adam Sandler was the only one who could save us? No, neither has anybody else because what a nightmare -- primarily because of its terrifyingly boring nature -- it would be. Secondly, expecting Sandler, who's consistently played a goofball in several romantic comedies, to pick up a gun that shoots ...

Review: Aisa Yeh Jahaan is a half-baked attempt

It's hard to root for Aisa Yeh Jahaan despite its beautiful concept, says Paloma Sharma. Biswajeet Bora's directorial debut, Aisa Yeh Jahaan, brings to the silver screen a conversation that we, as a society, have been in desperate need of for a while. Starring Dr Palash Sen and Ira Dubey, Aisa Yeh Jahaan focuses on the human mind, body and soul, and their growing detachment from nature. Props to Bora for attempting a novel theme and Aisa Yeh Jahaan has other merits too, such as being ...

There’s enough emotion in every single frame to break your heart, Paloma Sharma says after watching Asif Kapadia's documentary Amy.
