Short and sweet

Reviews are short and sweet in general but the structure can vary. Some reviews have deep analysis while others are presented peripherally; the structure is mentioned in the content section which includes the presence of spoilers. Analysis is usually published in “second page” of the review.

Proto-feminist analysis

Being someone from the fairer sex, I analyze films from a feminist POV as well. At the end of the day, it is just a movie but from a society that worships films and actors, it is essential to put forward good messages. I give extra marks to those films which break stereotypes or for improving in terms of the depiction of women, men, minorities, LGBTQIA, and others included in the intersectional section, different from the traditional views.

I give extra marks to films that socially relevant or with national integrity. Along with that, I reduce marks for those films which glorify racist contexts, sexism, hyper, regressive plot-points and which do not prioritize marginalized section when it comes to the films based on social causes.

 

Technicals

I am also partial towards the films that used exceptional practical effects for visual wonder and reduce marks for those which use excess CGI, the kind that gives you a headache. At the same time, cinematography, editing, sound effects, music, production design, costume-makeup etc are given extra attention.

Critique

I am a harsh critic. I give no partiality towards any popular film, favorite actors, actresses, directors or milestones. At the same time, reviews are purely based on my thoughts, you are welcome to contradict but in a civilized manner.

  1. Dear Karthika,I am one Koshy from Thrissur. Was fortunate to see your great site.
    I am so proud of it and would like to let you know that it looks highly professional one in par with some of the journalist sites like BBC. Keep it up and congratulations. I would suggest that you add some constantly updating current news feeds ( with no personal comments ) and relevant topics or link to them like global warming , current vaccine schedules, newer discoveries and science and technology as you see in google news etc.

  3. Hi, Karthika. My name is Sarah, and I’m a film producer. I’ve made several short films that have previously been featured at AFI (https://youtu.be/lF46NzL5sTs), and I’m getting in touch with you today to talk to you about my latest short. It’s called Servants of Sex, and you can check out the Indigogo page here (http://bit.ly/2cJAiMT). The film is a comedy about two guys who try to convert to different religions to try to find love. I notice that you often write about these types of quirky films. Right now, we’re trying to secure funding for its very modest budget through Indigogo. It would be great if you would consider writing a post about the film, sharing it with your followers, or even donating. We have some pretty exciting perks for film aficionados and hipsters alike. Once again, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I know you are very busy, so thank you in advance for checking out our film (http://bit.ly/2cJAiMT), and please let us know if you have any questions.
