Vettah - a movie that made me look forward for more than one reason - Manju Warrier as a lady cop. This movie was helmed by Rajesh Pillai, who kickstarted the new generation movie trend of malayalam and he can easily be termed as a saviour of malayalam cinema which was then fast reaching the zenith of mediocority and absurdness. Unfortunately Rajesh Pillai passed away on the day 'Vettah' hit the screens. So the movie got overshadowed by his death news and there was no coverage for the movie. 'Vettah' deserves a special mention in malayalam cinema annals.

There are some movies that make you laugh, cry and sympathise with the onscreen characters but there are very few movies that make you look yourself in the caharcters. You might even like to do in life certain things the characters had done onscreen. And at the end you might feel good about youselves... Charlie (malayalam 2015) is definitely among such movies. Directed by Martin Parakkat, this movie had Parvathy and Dulqer Salman as lead protagonists supported by Aparna Gopinath, Nedumudi Venu and Shoubin Sahir.

Ever since my favourite Vidya Balan announced her comeback with the Hindi remake of a Bengali movie - "Rajkahini (2015)", I was intrigued about the original movie. Veteran actress Rituparno Sengupta is one helluva lot of actress and had played the role which Vidya Balan is about to essay in Hindi version. So when I stumbled upon the movie with subtitles in a torrent download, I didn't think a moment to initiate the download. The storyline of the movie is quite fascinating. During the India Pakistan partition, the international border line passes through a brothel which is headed by a powerful woman called Begum Jaan.

Sometimes the remix versions score better than the original song and this just proves the saying that you have to be at the right place at the right time. Jatin-Lalit's maiden song "Bin tere sanam" released in 1991 was much ahead of its times that when it was remixed in 2004, it became a rage across the country making every listener dance to it. I have sweet memories of hearing that for the first time in Dubai taxi. Another song that I remember better when remixed was 'Tu tu hai wohi..' from Rishi Kapoor - Tina Munim starrer 'Yeh Vaada Raha' (1982), which was picturised on 3 female models posing to work on a call center.
