The White Tiger poster

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

Kaagaz poster

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

Quick review: A walkthrough of what a man went through to prove that he is alive. Feels like interesting journal entries that strictly stick to the “what” without getting into the “why”.

Quick review: Someone thought of putting questions about life, death and beyond in a light, fun movie—that in itself is incredible. And then you have lovely animation to make the experience even richer—enough to excuse the anti-climactic end.
