Reading Time: 5 minutes The latest outing in the IMF saga has return director Christopher McQuarrie spin an incredible action thriller that’s packed with ridiculously intense and fantastic action sequences and a tight plot that also ties in some of the earlier installment’s threads.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane whip up a fantastic first season for Netflix’s original content debut in India. Dividing the story-telling into two tracks, they add layers of conflicted and murderous characters who clash and collide, sparking off intense drama and hard-to-look-from away scenes. The action’s intense, the notes are grungy and the suspense an undercurrent to the main arc: the boiling cauldron of religion, politics, and power. Add to it an all-round superlative cast and an anxious background score, and you have a bloody winner.

Reading Time: 5 minutes Director Kashyap can be unflinching in his take on life, and it is when he makes you flinch. He keeps the movie’s look rustic and bare-boned, thriving on the lack of pelf of its setting and its characters, and the production design is starkly evocative. It is when Kashyap and his cinematographic team take you inside the belly of these households and keep you there is when you are stirred and shaken in equal measure.
