The Devil Judge review: K-drama on Netflix loses sharpness along the way, yet makes for a worthy watch
While The Devil Judge protagonist Yohan may not have the charisma of transgressive heroes like Vincenzo, he is still fun to watch and his nemesis is one of the most charismatic villains of the K-drama in recent times.
Harry Potter Reunion Special review: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint return home, and so do we
Just like with home and family, as you grow older, you see the flaws and the terrible political stances and just the cringe photo albums, but you still look forward to visiting home. The Harry Potter reunion special is much like that.
Death to 2021 review: Another stingingly therapeutic newsreel that kicks in the groin of a year we'd like to forget
Death to 2021 may not have the originality of its predecessor but some acutely clever writing and spiky jabs at politicians, cultural oddities, and events that occupied the majority of 2021, make this one hour a perfect companion to float into a better year – hopefully.
Hawkeye review: Marvel's Jeremy Renner, Hailey Steinfeld show is a Christmas movie in weekly instalments
Hawkeye proves itself to be a lively, polyphonic addition to the Christmas canon, with strong performances by Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld leading the way.
Emily in Paris Season 2 review: Lily Collins' Netflix show continues its magnetic allure of an airport chick-lit paperback
There is plenty of content out there for you to flex your cerebral muscles. For this one, sit back, strap your seatbelts, or get into your pajamas.
Succession is perhaps that rare show that clobbers the idea of empathy, that characters ought to be likeable to be watchable.
Aarya Season 2 review: Sushmita Sen strikes back in Ram Madhvani's thrill-a-minute ride with a spine
The sense of stillness that made Aarya a thriller with a soul arrives quite late in this season. But the delay is planted and deliberate. The pace is relentless, but the core remains uncompromised.
The pace through the last season of Little Things is deceptively languorous. Even though the takes are long and dialogues designed to be less hurried, there is always an undercurrent of a race to the finish.
The tension rarely slips, and the acting, aided by Sneha Khanwalkar’s moody melodies, ground you to a world you begin to care enough to be devastated for.
What brings the show back from the precipice of unbearable wokeness is that it stops short of cancel culture. It portrays heterosexuality without sneering at it.
Despite my own shamefully perverse, unending fascination with the genre, Crime Stories: India Detectives is precisely the kind of show I binge hard, but find equally hard to recommend.
Foundation is a beautifully shot, well-thought-out piece of science fiction, unspooling itself at a languid pace.
Star Wars lends itself quite easily to a magical mystery tour of anime, a medium which affords a lot of freedom to experiment with form, style, and tone.
Season 2 sees the show tackling COVID-19, racism at the workplace, and several other red-button issues, with characteristic verve and energy. However, the old ‘both-sideism’ problem continues to affect The Morning Show.
I love that the openness of Sex Education makes me think and reflect, and at times, straight up uncomfortable. But it is a kind of discomfort I am grateful for.
The hitch with this follow-up season is that unlike the first time round, it seems they had to invent obstacles all over the place, just to keep the thrill going.
Lightly seasoned, Potluck makes a bigger comment on fragmenting modern families but its ingredients are rather basic.
Irreverent to the core, On The Verge does not care for political correctness; and that may feel shocking at times, but remains very real. Let’s face it – who is politically correct while talking to friends?
Mumbai Diaries 26/11 is an arresting genre piece. But it sets up morally ambiguous and potentially rich storylines, only to squander them with lazy writing, and paper the gaps with action sequences.
Pixar is now walking the Marvel path of extending its IP into the web-series format. And the result is a kind, chirpy, endearing show in Monsters At Work.
