Short Review: Remake of an all time classic Korean Movie – Old Boy. Remakes never are any good cause we compare them with original. With Zinda though, it was a dark ominous and gruesome. A novelty at the time. Watch it if you like to see something different made in Bollywood.

Short Review: Sridevi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are their best selves. Akshay Khanna is no less than either.

Sridevi carries a more nuanced and bitter tone than what we are used to. She portrays a loving mother on one hand and on the other, a mother drowned in the agony of her child. Watch it if only for brilliant performances.

Final Words

We love them cause these revenge stories “restore the balance of the universe”. After all the greatest Epic in world history “The Mahabharata” is also a story of revenge.
