A good movie creates a lot of hype if it is well received by the audience. Rodor Sithi was a movie about which I heard a lot of praises. Obviously my expectations were high. This was going to be my second Assamese movie in the theatre after the 2003 National Award winner, Tora. So how was the film?
A big disaster.
This is the most positive opinion I could present. Two things completely ruined the movie; one, the acting and the other is the story. Other than that, the constant presence of a song or some music playing in the background was a real irritant. Continue reading Rodor Sithi

War is not a pretty sight.
It is a fact that whatever images and propaganda are shown to the general public only tell a part of the story. In fact the reality is much grimmer.

This is a great movie.
I didn’t know that this was another Nolan movie and when I read the names Christopher & Jonathan Nolan at the end credits, I was really impressed. Not just for the movie but for the Nolans. They have many times proven that they’re masterful creators who never fail to deliver. Another aspect about the movie besides the impressive visuals and the almost perfect writing was the music. The incredible score perfectly complemented the movie right from the first scene. Hans Zimmer has been known to produce some very powerful music and has consistently shown his talent. But this Continue reading Interstellar (2014)

What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without reading a book (since learning how to read, of course)? Which book was it that helped break the dry spell?
More than two years!
And that’s mainly because of the Indian Educational System. Basically the Higher Secondary (or Junior College) level is one of the most critical part of our school life. With a billion plus population, competition is not easy. You have to be either very brilliant or very hard working. I had a bit of both and it worked for me.
No book broke the spell but I’m gonna get back on track.
