Further Thoughts: Moana

SPOILERS FOR THE ENTIRE THING

So a lot of people are saying that while Moana definitely looks and (at least to an extent) sounds nice (I especially love the use of Pacific Islander vocals and music), the story is too familiar and/or has some pacing issues. 871 more words

My Review : Kahani 2

Prelude :

Exactly 4 years ago, I had watched Kahani in Bangalore. Being quite aware of Mr Sujoy Ghosh’s body of work back then, I was not expecting much from the film..but it did surprise me as it became one of my favourite thriller films till date. 552 more words

Review - Animal Tales

My youngest daughter especially loves cats.  So when I saw this little title advertised at the Book Club, the cat photograph initially interested me.  However, if you enjoy true stories about cats and other animals, you will love this book just as much as younger readers. 436 more words
