Movie Review: “The Big Sick” is emotional and funny!

I have seen Kumail Nanjiani’s work in HBO sitcom, Silicon Valley, therefore I was very curious to see his movie, The Big Sick. And I wasn’t disappointed. This movie is based on Kumail‘s life story and very beautifully told. The movie is equal part touching and funny! There are some scenes which inherently are very intense and emotional but even in those scenes, the dialogues are written so beautifully that you can’t help laughing. I believe I also heard clapping in the theater for couple of dialogues.

Every actor has done a fabulous job of acting but I was particularly impressed by Holly Hunter. Movie length, direction and editing are quite impressive. If you like comedy and drama, you should definitely check this one out, you won’t be disappointed!

Movie Review: The Founder!

The likes of successful corporations such as Starbucks and McDonalds have always fascinated me. There is always a big-thinking entrepreneur behind such phenomenal corporations. Therefore I had to watch the movie The Founder to learn more about how McDonalds came into existence and became a sensation.

The Founder starring Michael Keaton is a well directed and a very telling story told from the perspective of Ray Kroc, the man with an ambitious mind. I really liked learning how the corporation was started and how the various events led to what McDonalds is today.

The Founder is a very well acted and directed movie! A must watch for those interested in business and inspiring stories!

Movie Review – XXX: Return of Xander Cage!

Got a chance to watch XXX: Return of Xander Cage today! I haven’t watched any of the previous movies of this franchise but I wanted to watch this one for Deepika Padukone.

I am not a fan of action movies…I hate to admit that at times they are difficult to follow such as the Avengers (I may have slept through one..) Having said that, XXX: Return of Xander Cage was easy to follow and had a clear cut storyline. Vin Diesel was majestic and all the other characters were perfectly casted and performed well. I was quite impressed with Donnie Yen.  Deepika held her own and looked gorgeous!

Overall a nice watch if you like action movies. Some of the stunts were really fun to watch especially the chase in the ocean and the airplane climax scenes.
