Wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else TV/online
Quick review: It is telling that the film is a necessary reality check today.
Wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online
Quick review: In its attempt to keep things light, the film becomes loud and meanders. In its attempt to make a point, it breaks into spurts of short speeches. In the one aspect, it wants to create awareness about, it doesn’t go beyond a couple of wisecracks.
Wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do
Quick review: I am as disappointed to report as I am glad that I didn’t get scared once through the two hours.
Wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable
Quick review: Boring. Even for romantics like me.
I finally watched Ijaazat. My thoughts on watching it as a 46-year-old.
A counterpoint to Meeta's review of Aiyaary and a comparison with the other film that released on the same day The Shape of Water.
This piece is fanboy material by design - it is for the most part about the influence of his - the Joharian school of cinema - on me, as someone who grew up in the late nineties as also on our popular mainstream culture - something that our man isn't credited for often and not nearly enough with.
