    Watched Gehraiyan on Amazon Prime. It is described in imdb as: "Takes you on a journey into the deep rooted intricacies of modern human relationships."

    I loved watching it. The movie touches upon many relationships spanning generations, not just between the lead pair. Deepika Padukone has acted well, so has Siddhant Chaturvedi in most scenes. Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapoor do their usual excellent job. Ananya Pandey did well too, though, at only 23 years, she cannot be compared to Deepika's 36.

    I liked this movie more than the other hits on similar topic. The second half is more riveting. I wish the 2 hr 28 minutes had been shaven down by 15-20 minutes.

    After more people have watched it, would be nice to talk about the story and the choices the characters make.

    Watched the movie very intense subject everyone acted well, you can really feel the pressure in the hero's acting, he is definitely a selfish guy who will do anything for money. Deepika Padukone acted well but I thought Radhika Apte would have played the role better.

    Waiting for Parched to be released in Amazon Prime or Netflix.

    I watched it and I just thought on couple of things repeatedly. Finally, wrote down a few lines in journal for future reference.
    Yes, Rih, I will post my review after few days.:smile:

    Watched Bhamakalapam telugu movie. Priyamani nailed it. Clean movie with good acting and gripping storyline. Watched a movie without fast forward after a long time. Priyamani looked gorgeous in sarees. A comedy thriller worth my time absolutely.

    Jalsa (2022) on Prime. Jalsa (2022) - IMDb

    Simple thriller, good acting by Shefali Shah and Vidya Balan. Well supported by Rohini Hattangadi, Manav Kaul and three younger lesser known or new faces: Vidhatri Bandi, Surya Kasibhatla, and Shafeen Patel.

    The trailer can be a bit misleading. Though the movie is about a hit and run, it is not filled with violence. It focuses more on human relationships, guilt, honesty, and the bonds that prevail over the rich-poor divide. Very nice to see Shefali Shah get another role that utilizes her acting talent. Vidya Balan also did well but the dress choices could have been better. Even the saree she wears for a photo shoot in the movie made her look awful. Wonder why they chose a curtain kind of thick velvety fabric for the saree.

    The biggest delight was the acting delivered by the child actor Surya Kasibhatla, who is an inspiration by himself.

    Yes, Jalsa is amazing movie but not quite thriller as I though but deals with raw emotions and human mishandling nature when they face the harsh realities that affect them.. Usually when I watch some Bollywood movies, I find it really difficult to concentrate. But this one had all my attention from start to end. All the female leads did awesome !

    Jalsa - watched in Einthusan. Didn`t move an inch from the start to finish. Good thriller. It is hard to predict how our mind reflects. Judging is also not correct, unless the exact situation is known. When the hit and run happened, first emerging emotion was fear then it has transformed into guilt.Good screenplay and Open end.

    Dasvi Hindi movie on Netflix. An eight-grade pass uneducated politician who has to be in jail for a while ends up studying for class 10 exams. Interesting story and it had a talented star cast: Abhishek Bachchan as the politician, Nimrat Kaur (Lunchbox) as the politician's initially clueless then scheming wife, Yami Gautam as the principled jail superintendent.

    Okaayyy movie. Worth a watch if you badly need a distraction and nothing else appeals. Or, in an airplane and sleep just won't come. If the two hours are dispensable in all ways.

    The last 30-40 minutes are the better part of the movie though these also have cringe-worthy scenes. The stern superintendent arrives with a katori bowl and chamcha spoon in hand to feed him dahi-cheeni curd &sugar before the exam.

    The few redeeming scenes were those with Nimrat Kaur and Abhishek at the very beginning and the very end.

    All the actors did well but each has much better movies.
