Wogma rating: Catch on TV/online for sure

Quick review: A unique story told rather plainly. I’m not asking for drama but would have liked a bit of a punch in the story-telling. Nevertheless, can be seen as a news item turned into a film owing to seemingly effortless performances by both lead actors.

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

Quick review: Ultimately, falls into the category of stories that one of the film’s own characters describes: superficial. While doing so though it has some adorable moments, despite giving away way too much in its trailer. And of course, since it is issue-based, it cannot resist a predictably preachy climax.

Wogma rating: Catch on TV/online for sure

Quick review: Is like a well-made horror film. It is well-made that is why it scares you. And of course, that it is all real-life doesn’t help.

Manikarnika - The Queen Of Jhansi poster

Wogma rating: Catch on TV/online for sure

Quick review: The makers take the strength of the original, real-life story and character for granted and entirely focus on form, rather than content. Good thing then that the brave warrior woman needs no man or depth in writing to shine.
