Tomatometer-approved critic
Biography:
I have been reviewing films for almost a decade now and in every mode of medium possible - from radio to television, print and digital medium. I started as a radio presenter where my audio film reviews became very popular. Currently I'm an accredited film critic with The Quint where my reviews appear both in text and as videos. The video reviews have a dedicated fan following and are hugely popular for their humor, candid analysis and low tolerance for trashy misogynistic films. Along side this my audio reviews are broadcast on Fever 104fm where I host the Morning drive show. I'm based in New Delhi, India.

4/5 100% Raat Akeli Hai (2020) Editor A. Sreekar Prasad sculpts the film masterfully and Honey Trehan allows for contemplation as he builds anticipation and tension without relying on cliches . - The Quint EDIT

3.5/5 70% Omertà (2018) Omerta is a difficult film to watch because of its dark unrelenting portrayal of violence, but watch it for Rajkumar Rao's stunning performance. - The Quint EDIT

3/5 50% Lootcase (2019) The brilliant and tight writing of the film takes a little dip towards the end when it starts feeling a little stretched. Overall, the film is a harmless, entertaining film which promises good laughs throughout. - The Quint EDIT

3.5/5 100% Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (2020) The real, steady moments where the film shines are in the emotional scenes, stripped of melodrama. The background score subtly and assuredly weaves its magic. An intensely emotional tale told with restraint, Gunjan Saxena seals a place in our hearts. - The Quint EDIT

2.5/5 87% Dil Bechara (2020) it's tough to not tear up. His natural warmth is a crucial element of the film's emotional design. Sushant and Sanjana's tenderness carries the film as does the performance of the ensemble cast . - The Quint EDIT

3.5/5 88% Shakuntala Devi (2020) A woman living a life unapologetically and portrayed without judgement. That is the film's biggest strength. - The Quint EDIT

4.5/5 86% Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) Expectations can be tricky. The greater the frenzy over a film, the higher the chances that the film will appear dull in comparison. Luckily for us all, Baahubali 2 manages to live up to the weight of our massive expectations. Go for this one. - The Quint EDIT

3/5 75% Kahaani 2 (2016) The chilling efficiency with which Sujoy Ghosh has been approaching the story reaches a dead end as the "Kahaani" gobsmackingly evaporates. Predictability mars the narrative . - The Quint EDIT

4.5/5 100% Aligarh (2016) Prof Siras's story isn't just a fight for gay rights, but a triumph of conviction and spirit. For that, it is a must watch. - The Quint EDIT

3/5 71% The Sky Is Pink (2019) Ultimately The Sky is Pink is heartfelt with some enriching and powerful performances, but also flawed in its uneven narration. - The Quint EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Jai Ho! Democracy (2015) Light at the end of this dark tunnel comes in the form of the end credits. A film best forgotten. I would give it 1 QUINT. - The Quint EDIT

1.5/5 21% Love Aaj Kal (2020) As for the narrative, the GPS never worked. It's off the mark and if you are an Imtiaz Ali fan, be prepared to be disappointed but be ready to be left confused first - The Quint EDIT

3/5 50% Shikara (2020) The aching loss of home,friends &the familiarity &comfort that it brings is a recurring theme, but watch Shikara for the lovely story and you won't be disappointed. The story of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits perhaps deserves a more powerful film. - The Quint EDIT

2/5 44% Malang (2020) Another one of those "thrillers" that you forget the moment you step out of the theatre. - The Quint EDIT

1/5 10% Street Dancer 3 (2020) We wake up in the last 20 minutes when the music reaches a crescendo and the dance routine has a lot of verve. But what's the point? We have seen it all isnt it? And the way it unfolds here, we know well before the interval what's going to happen. - The Quint EDIT

3/5 88% Chhapaak (2020) However, despite these effective performances it seems like the film has nothing to say post interval. Although Deepika "looks" her part as the acid attack survivor, the events seem more like a reconstruction rather than a comprehensively built story. - The Quint EDIT

4/5 94% Panga (2020) Panga isn't limited to a tussle in a kabaddi match.It's about not letting life get the better of you . Even at the end it isn't a carefully curated victory lap that the film offers .It ends with a million possibilities &that's the beauty of Panga. - The Quint EDIT

3/5 69% Jawaani Jaaneman (2020) As a father-daughter love story there is enough spunk in it to warrant a viewing. There is a newness with which this love story is tackled, and though there are times when the narrative slumps it still has its heartwarming moments . - The Quint EDIT

1/5 20% Dabangg 3 (2019) Salman Khan couldn't save the film. It had nothing we haven't seen already. Nothing we would want to see. 1 Quint out of 5! - The Quint EDIT

3/5 75% Good Newwz (2019) Overall, Good Newwz never tries to attempt something too ambitious or big or new. It's happy to be its good-looking safe self and that has worked in its favour. - The Quint EDIT

2.5/5 50% Mardaani 2 (2019) It all seems strangely clinical and mechanical. The patchy writing doesn't let the film become anything more than a formulaic exercise where the tough cop will get the bad guy and we forget all about it as soon as we leave the hall. - The Quint EDIT

2.5/5 43% Pati Patni Aur Woh (2019) One wonders why a golden opportunity to explore the strain on modern day relationships is so callously missed. Prosaic formula killed this film& makes it staggeringly average despite Kartik, Bhumi, Ananya making the most of what they are given. - The Quint EDIT

1.5/5 43% Panipat (2019) Panipat: The Great Betrayal as it's called - feels like one too without the requisite emotional playoff or enough visually arresting scenes. In the end, it's all reduced to a boring history lecture that lasts almost 3 hours. - The Quint EDIT

4/5 76% Hotel Mumbai (2019) Overall, Hotel Mumbai isn't an easy watch in the sense that it does bring back some very painful memories; but cinematically it is a solid and gritty retelling of an extremely tragic moment in our recent history. 4 Quints out of 5! - The Quint EDIT

3/5 73% Gulabo Sitabo (2020) Gulabo Sitabo has its moments, the characters and their eccentricities stay with us but how much undivided attention can it command when the going gets slightly tedious? - The Quint EDIT

3/5 82% Bulbbul (2020) 1 of the questions the film throws up&doesn't answer is if the binary between being a devi or chudail is the only recourse feminine power has to navigate in this patriarchal set up. No easy answers in sight but nevertheless a visually appealing film. - The Quint EDIT

5.5/10 58% Dolly Ki Doli (2015) Dolly Ki Doli is a terribly half baked affair and that's a pity. - Planet Bollywood EDIT
