This section contains film reviews and musings around films in general. Exploiting the liberty of getting to choose the films I review, I have largely gone with the ones which moved or delighted or entertained me.

As each film is unique and has its own story to tell, which may vary widely in scope and subject, I feel comparing one with another does not often doing justice to either. Hence, the reviews on this site refrain from rating the films on a scale and are limited to a subjective commentary 🙂
