My personal space where I scribble whatever funny thoughts come to my mind. Actually, that is not entirely true. A lot of random thoughts enter and leave my mind all the time and the blog contains only a largely drilled down and censored subset of them.
Also, there are reviews of certain movies that have fascinated the viewer in me.
I would say the time you spent here would not be regretted.

TV Review : Sherlock - The Abominable Bride
Title : Sherlock - The Abominable Bride Language : English Year : 2016 Director : Douglas Mackinnon Genre : Crime, Drama, Mystery IMDB Link Watch trailer on Youtube Lead Role : Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Una Stubbs
After almost two years of baited anticipation, the hat detective and his doctor friend is back, this time in what apparently is a time twisting episode, as the plot unravels itself in the nineteenth century. Sherlock fans, do not be disheartened. The times may have changed, horse carts may have replaced motor cars and certain socio-political situations might be from the past, but the super confident-arrogant nature of Mr. Holmes and the helpful, concerned and rebuking nature of the good old Watson remain intact in this "special" episode. Though this is an off-episode, I would advise you to watch the first three seasons before you watch this (if you have not watched already).
So, what is the abominable bride all about? To be short and not to let the spoilers away, this is the tale of Emilia Ricoletti, who has risen from her grave after committing suicide in public. And she does not sit quiet after her comeback. Instead, what ensues is a murder spree. Obviously, Sherlock gets involved. There are certain paranormal elements in the way the story is presented, and some scenes may give you a horrifying chill.
Is the abominable bride all about one dead woman walking? No. I am not gonna spoil anything for anyone, but you would be in for some surprises down the line. The first one being Mycroft Holmes himself. Nothing more about the story. Better watch and enjoy.
What I love about Sherlock is the superlative direction and the fascinating dialogues. And, there is no death of neither in this. Performances, as usual, are top class. While the abominable bride gives you some answers, it opens a set of questions.
Title : The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari Language : Silent Movie Year : 1920 Director : Robert Wiene Genre : Horror IMDB Link Watch movie on YouTube Lead Role : Friedrich Feher, Werner Krauss The movie is widely acknowledged as one of the landmark revolutionary offerings from the long gone era when movies did not speak. It may be technically incorrect to call a silent film German, nevertheless it was made in Germany during a time period when the European nation was in turmoils after the devastating World War I. The story begins with a young man by the name of Francis starts narrating the hardships faced by him and his fiancee (Jane) and the very peculiar, even horrifying doings of a strange man, Dr. Caligari. Dr. Caligari owns a stall at a nearby exhibition, and on display is a somnambulist Caeser, who allegedly has slept for 23 straight years! The doctor awakens him, and he answers questions asked by the spectators. To the horror of the locals, his prophecies comes true. Mean
The Dress was white and gold. It has always been so. The woman who had purchased the dress for her best friend's wedding had put up a pic of it on her social media, and a couple of her prankster friends had claimed the dress to be black and blue, setting the stones in motion. (It is important to note that at the time they were commenting, they had just thought of it as a harmless joke.) The woman who had uploaded the pic of the white and gold dress that she had purchased for her best friend's wedding lost her mind when her friends said the dress was blue and black. She was a person of simple thoughts, and her mind had no place for her friends' mischief. However, their hard stand was throwing her off. She needed closure. So she did the one thing people do when they need closures. She poised the question to the Internet, with an elaborate description of how she had bought the white and gold dress for her best friend's wedding but how some of her friends were seeing it a
The days of tranquillity are probably over. The two-leggeds are back. They have been uncharacteristically away for a while now. No idea what kept them so busy that they decided to forego their annual pilgrimage to our humble abode. Whatever it was, they seem to have dealt with it. Here they come, in their warm sweaters made off the wool from our sheep, wanting to lie in peace at the quaint valley of our own Parvati. For the record, I do not hold anything against the two-leggeds. I find them to be simple and soft creatures. Their bodies could not tolerate the mood swings of the climate that they had to wrap themselves in artificial layers of skin. Their bodies are not fast enough that they had to build metal boxes to get them places. Delicate creatures. Often they come here - with tall tales of how they long to be one with nature. Between you and me, most of them come here primarily to inhale the magic plant. Anyway, I don't intend to indulge in gossip much. Their arrival doesn'
