I’ve been a movie buff for quite sometime now and I’ve always been proud about my tryst with the major regional language movies in India.

Actor's Canvas

A hard-hitting underdog story of possibly a rag-to-riches glimpse told through the eyes of Mumbai streets. But what makes Gully Boy special is the backdrop on which it is set – i.e., Hindustani Hip-Hop.

I have a treasure trove of childhood memories. Of good times with family – both close and extended. We would make it a point to meet up once a year, typically the last weekend of the year before Christmas and a day or two after the New Year. All my cousins except for one were […]
