Busy week of reviews! I’m finally gonna tackle Paheli, I’m going to try to force you all to watch Koyla, and I’m digging in to Prithviraj’s big budget international funded release. And I am going to try to force you all to watch a surprisingly good big budget Telugu film that flopped.
Wednesday 10/9: 9 (Malayalam, Hotstar)
Prithviraj’s film as producer and star, funded by Sony, big budget science fiction father son story. Very interesting!
Thursday 10/10: Spyder (Telugu, Netflix)
Big budget action film with a bunch of interesting ideas and a really great final rescue mission. And good songs. And a great villain. And no stupid politics. Really, check it out!
Friday 10/11: Paheli (Hindi, Netflix)
Shahrukh’s odd period drama fairy tale fable that makes no logical sense and yet is fun to watch. I am finally going to review it!
Sunday 10/13: Koyla (Hindi, Netflix)
This was one of my first reviews last Shahrukh Birthday Month too! I just find this film surprisingly good, and very different, and I want more people to watch it.
