Wogma rating: Catch on TV/online for sure

Quick review: Starts with lightness and smiles, end jerks tears sweetly. The in-between though slumps and drags. Making for a fitful watch that you don’t mind having spent time on. (Available on Netflix)

Wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online

Quick review: Takes a shot at creating humour around honour killing.

Yet, it keeps you worried about the protagonists, which is the film’s biggest win. (Available on Zee5)

Wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online

Quick review: Romance against many odds. An underdog story which, by definition, is against all odds. A comment on societal rivalries. None of the themes is fresh. Unfortunately, they don’t make the whole better than the parts as they come together, despite being woven together well.

(Available on Amazon Prime Video)

Wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do

Quick review: Hindi pulp murder mystery, but on-screen, not in a novel. In that sense, it ends up as intended. A cheesy story that over-romanticises romance. Good performances are not enough to make it worth your energy and precious TV time.
