Killers of Flower moon - The Power-Duo is back


When you have DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese come together, you can definitely expect something to savour and Killers of the Flower Moon definitely does that. Like most of Scorsese’s Movies, this has a runtime of almost 3.5 hours but it still captivates you throughout.

Anatomy of a fall - The World Cinema Entry


Considered to be one of the best movies of the year, the French movie Anatomy of a fall garnered a lot of interest during the film festivals. It is a courtroom drama revolving around a woman who is suspected of her husband and their blind son being the sole witness of that murder faces a moral dilemma.

Animal - The best among the several Bollywood Mass hits this year


2023 saw a deluge of Mega blockbusters with SRK ruling the box-office with Pathaan, Jawan and to some extent Dunki. But Animal with its pre-release hype, its grand opening, and to some extent its external noise will be our choice among the mass hits. Special mention to couple of tunes outside the album (both Ranbir Kapoor and Bobby Deol’s entry songs) which became a craze gradually and still ruling the world of reels.

Sirf Ek Banda Kaafi hai - The Indian Courtroom Drama you shouldn’t miss


Sirf Ek banda was a stealer hit. A Zee5 release, it was based on a true story whose strength lay in putting forward the facts in a simple manner. This connected with the audience very well. Manoj Bajpai gave a stellar performance.

The Creator - Sci-Fi Pick with stunning VFX


Amongst the Sci-Fi Movies, The Creator which is based on a war between human race and forces of AI managed to create a lot of buzz and was appreciated for its brilliant VFX. Though the story was predictable and on the weaker side, its visual effects more than made up for it and forced the audience to visit the Theatres to experience it!

12th Fail - An Underdog Story


12th Fail, based on a true story, did quite well in spite of a very silent release and absence of any major superstars. The main reason of it being a feel-good movie which shows the struggles of lesser sections of society to achieve their dreams and the determination to reach their goals. Audience related with the truthfulness of the story and it became a word of mouth hit.

Talk to Me - For the Horror Fans


Horror movies are the all-time favourite of a lot of Movie Buffs. But it is more challenging to create a horror movie which engages the audience with the right amount of chill and scare factor. Talk to me won’t be something which folks will remember in years to come but it still has an original story which captivates the audience. If you are looking for a top horror pick of 2023, go for it.

Gulmohar - A fresh family movie


Family dramas saw a huge comeback in Bollywood in 2023 but while most of them were dull and boring (e.g. Rocky aur Rani kii prem kahaani, Satyaprem ki katha) Gulmohar was a very fresh watch. With a huge ensemble cast, it managed to create and maintain multiple subplots very nicely.

OppenHeimer - A Different Nolan


And we end with OppenHeimer, which also created a huge buzz before its release due to a couple of reasons, one it being a Nolan film and secondly with its clash with Barbie. Verdicts differ on which film was better but both of them hit the right chord with their respective audience. OppenHeimer was very much a different Nolan movie where the complexity factor was little less but the perfection was there for everyone to see.
