Pagglait poster

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

Quick review: Grief or lack thereof owing to a death in the family is aptly treated with melancholy. Predictable as it is, Pagglait doesn't scratch beyond the opportunistic attitude of the people around the deceased. Within the boundaries it sets for itself though, the film keeps you interested despite its slow pace.

Is Love Enough? Sir poster

Wogma rating: Must see - on the big screen

Quick review: A story that you wish were true. Execution that is real and poetic. Touches dark themes without making light of them and without heavy-handed writing. Had me in awe of its simplicity for long after it was done.

Wogma rating: Watch for sure, preferably in theatre

Quick review: So, so many difficult issues dealt with a light, matter-of-factly hand. Lots of ground covered in a breezy 90 minutes without being rushed. An engaging watch from start to finish.
