Dark On Netflix : Blurring the lines between Physics & Metaphysics

Image
Dark on Netflix ends with the protagonist’s mother experiencing a deja vu when thunder & lightening strikes Winden, the fictional german town which is the setting for the mind bending time travel drama that just ended after three riveting seasons. The woman, pregnant, says she had a similar nightmare where the thunder brings an apocalypse and everything ends. The nothingness that is left after the destruction, she explains it as something that gives her a sense of freedom, a happiness that comes from a state of being desire-less.This summarises the philosophy that Dark dabbles in, seemingly under the garb of a science fiction, but then, as it progresses, it turns into a drama that refuses to limit itself to a particular genre. Slowly but resolutely, the storytelling blurs the line between physics and metaphysics, and plummets towards a climax that is as stunning as satisfying.The writers of the show play this game beautifully, where they use the known laws of the universe to trave…

Dil Bechara: A bitter sweet Adieu to Sushant Singh Rajput

Image
Dil Bechara starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi directed by Mukesh Chabra premiered on Disney+Hotstar on 24th July at 7.30 PM for both subscribers as well as non-susbscribers for free. The movie showcases the love tale of star crossed lovers Kizzie and Manny, both ailing from cancer and how their lives transform beautifully once they enter each other’s lives. The movie is an adaptation of the English Film “The Fault in our stars” and the movie does manage to Indianise most of the characters successfully.  Told through cute moments between the couple, Dil Bechara really gets you emotional at certain places. I had to pause the movie immediately after the first three minutes because I didn’t know if I would be able to watch the film at all. However it took some courage, to come back and watch the film as I did want to watch this film at any cost. While Kizzie, is a die hard fan of a Musician Abhimanyu(Saif Ali Khan in a cameo), the egging question in her heart remains as to why …

Reviewer: Shaswat Dubey
Panchayat will strike a chord with you if you have lived in central/eastern parts of India or let us say if you have seen rural life at some point of your life or you prefer simplicity and like things natural.No surprise that it’s TVF production who are known for producing simple and natural content since the time when YouTube was the only video streaming platform.The story is based on a young graduate who gets a rural posting as a Panchayat secretary referred as “Sachiv Ji” in the series – who has taken this job as he had no other option and his experiences and struggle in village, the story is simple and covers some unique aspects of rural and personal life, it touches personal aspirations, frustrations and social pressure but yes very gently and smoothly.You will specially love the sequences where the panchayat office building is converted as ‘janmasa’ for a wedding at village, how two different refreshment packets are kept for bride and groom side and the co…

Parth Samthan stops shooting as he tests COVID Postive

Image
Parth Samthaan who plays Anurag Basu in the revamped version of Kasauti Zindagi Kay has detected covid positive barely few day’s after resuming the shoot of his show last month. While the new episodes were soon to air and Karan Singh Grover who plays Mr Bajaj was replaced by Karan Patel this news comes as a heart breaker.  The actor took to social media to announce the same stating he had been experiencing mild symptoms and this made him get a test and it turned out positive. The actor has requested people who have come in contact with him in the recent past to also get their tests done as a precautionary measure.  We wish him all the very best. It was told earlier that the actor had taken a break because he had been suffering depression. The track was to shift focus to Prerna and Mr. Bajaj’s story, but with the actor falling sick now this seems inevitable. Cities like Bangalore and Pune have reimposed lockdowns in their area after growing number of cases. Until the vaccine is invented, …
