Analysis of TVF Spotlight | Chosen Few - A Short Film

Recently I have watched a short film titled as Chosen Few on TVF aka The Viral Fever's youtube channel. TVF which is most famous for its Comedy Sketches and Web Series. The major part of TVFs' contents revolves around the LIGHT HUMOR genre.
But this time TVF tried to touch the ground of social issue.  This short film is little bit dark for the TVF's particular audience. But TVF took the risk of experimentation and get succeeded in it. 

Now, let me get back towards the short, Chosen Few. It revolves around the topic of human trafficking and teen sex workers. The screenplay is good,  as it holds your attention from the start. Then, you feel like the scenes are transitioning is fast, because it doesn't let your mind to stay with a scene. 
And, then in the climax, when you think that its not a happy ending, you misjudged, because justice has already been served. I don't want to say much about the short. Otherwise, I'll spill the beans of spoliers.

Super Deluxe: A Tamil Gem of 2019 [Movie Analysis]

Last night, I watched non-linear drama thriller Tamil movie Super Deluxe. Its just so entertaining and a message based simultaneously. The cast of movie such as Vijay Sethupathi, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Fahadh Faasil, Ramya Krishnan etc.
Vijay Sethupathi played the role of a person, who did the sex change operation after running away from his home. The little boy, Ashwanth Ashok Kumar, who played the character of Rasukutty, the child of Manikam aka Shilpa (Vijay Sethupathi).
Super Deluxe has done full justice with this genre. Unlike some other films which has some loose end in the name of this genre. From intro to climax, Super Deluxe holds the power to make viewers stick to their seats.

Overall, Thiagaranjan Kumararaja has done a great job with the soul of this movie. From dialogues to cinematic sequences, everything is perfect. Not even a single thing about this movie makes me look away from the screen. My favorite part of the movie is Rasukutty's special style to welcome his father.

T-Series head Bhushan Kumar said in a press release, “While the audience has been waiting for the second instalment to Bhool Bhulaiyaa, even I was eagerly waiting to make one for the longest time. However, we wanted to lock in the right script, one which was equally engaging and enticing as the first one. Finally, after a long wait of 11 years, Murad Bhai came to me with a script, which I felt was worthy of taking Bhool Bhulaiyaa forward as a franchise.” Hassoge aur darroge, phir se, kyunki wapas aa rahe hai hum #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 lekar!@TheAaryanKartik@itsBhushanKumar@MuradKhetani#KrishanKumar@Cine1Studios@BazmeeAnees@farhad_samji#AakashKaushik@BhoolBhulaiyaa2pic.twitter.com/XBP3eLPIrg— TSeries (@TSeries) August 19, 2019 The 2007 film was a remake of Fazil’s acclaimed Ma…

Mission Mangal Movie Review

Chronic cynics and inveterate snarkers would do themselves — and everyone else — a great big favor by steering clear of “Mission Mangal,” an entertaining and ingratiating feel-good movie about the 2013 launch of the Mangalyann space probe, an against-all-odds triumph of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). In the world according to director Jagan Shakti and his team of screenwriters, this epochal event — India’s first interplanetary excursion, and the first time any country succeeded at sending a satellite to Mars in its initial attempt — is a textbook example of jugaad, a Hindi expression often translated as efficacious improvisation with minimal resources. And there is more than a hint of “Hidden Figures” to the storytelling here, in that most of the improvisation is inspired by observations and experiences of women who sign on for the Mars Orbiter Mission, or “MOM” (yes, really).
Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan are first and second among equals in the ensemble cast, playing …
