Moana (2016)

My review of the Disney movie Moana (2016)

Just as I am writing this, BBC News confirms that some parts of Hawaii are under three feet of snow. A study by NASA just confirms that “it is no longer a question whether the West Antarctic Ice sheet will melt, it is a question of when”!

New Year 2015 at Bangalore

We spent our New Year’s Day at Bangalore this time. I am just penning a few thoughts on the year gone by and also jotting down a quick travelogue.

It could take you to new heights; make you visualize things which you can hardly ever dream of; things which are fantastic, to things which are mundane.

Indian Cinema

How does fanaticism of cinema differ from the rest of the world? A small insight.

I was just going through some really amazing videos of a certain Indian cine star in YouTube and I couldn’t help wondering if the heroes and directors ever get to watch their own film before its release? If at all they do, either they have cruel hearts or empty minds. It so happens that some of the so called action film run to 100 days of success because of it being treated as a comedy film!
