‘Baazaar’ review: Bland Stock Exchange

Reading Time: 3 minutes Director Gauravv K Chawla and his writing team create a stock market story that’s more stock than shock, letting you and their actors down with the velocity of a plunging economy. If there’s anything here that props up your interest, it’s Saif Ali Khan’s valiant act.

‘Andhadhun’ review: Run, Rabbit Run

Reading Time: 5 minutes Director Sriram Raghavan with his team of writers comes up with a devilishly clever and sharp entertainer that’s full of twists, jumps, guffaws, and references galore.

Add to it an all-round superlative cast and an anxious background score, and you have a bloody winner.

It’s also a sinking realization: some societal mores just won’t budge, no matter how far—or how much—we’ve come.
