The intent of this leaflet is to hoard Indian cinema reviews from outstanding Indian movies. Being an avid Hollywood buff, I rarely get time to watch movies with Indian roots, but whenever I do I ensure I watch quality stuff.

There is something dearly about your roots. It feels as if you are home. Entwined in your mother’s arms. The precise reason I care to check my roots. I squeeze some time out to watch highly recommended Indian films that I think are worth the time.


I fathom making a movie entails a lot of hard work. There are Herculean aspects that simply cannot be overlooked. Right from a perfect Casting to painstaking details entailed in achieving that articulate Cinematography, filling the right frames with apt Music to acing the frames with impeccable Acting, days of diligent Editing, perfecting it with an orgasmic Screenplay and then eventually binding everything together to make it all work is no easy job. I respect that! I intend to be a part of it someday. When that day comes, I will hold it closer to my heart and will never let go.


Indian Cinema has been growing at a very fast pace. Straight from A Movie intends to celebrate some of those rare flicks that have unveiled the jaded facade of mainstream. New directors have taken over the Indian Film Industry. Different ideas are being helmed even as we speak. People who can really act are slowly sauntering towards the spotlight, and we are standing at a rare developmental plateau with arms wide open, ready to accept the change.

This leaflet of Indian Film tries to celebrate some of those rare Hindi movies that were strong enough to break the shackles of one-way thinking.

If there was an Indian film I discovered that blew my mind away, I would put it here in this column. Make occasional visits to see what this gorgeous category has amassed over a time span.
