This is one Turkish drama series you don't want to miss. It's such magnificent, masterful storytelling. Great, great, great all the way. Kara Sevda (Endless Love) boasts a compelling storyline, an excellent cast, lovely sights and sounds, twists, turns, and everything ingredient you need for a powerful drama. The series tackled several real issues which made it so much more of a life drama. Love, Hate, Betrayal, Family Loyalty, Friendship and Brotherhood, Blackmail, Treachery, Lies and Deceit, Emotional and Psychological abuse, Possessiveness and Narcissism, Power Drunkenness, Corruption, Money, and Abuse of Power are just a wee tip of the many issues thrown up by this series. You have to watch it to understand.
This movie was such a fun watch. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Had me laughing almost through the entire movie. Yeah, I know, some reviews say it's just an Indian adaptation of regular Hollywood romcoms but come on guys -It's romcom!! It kind of reminded me of the 'Social season' in Bridgerton. I really loved the laughs, gaffs, parents' schemes and 'blackmail', negotiations and of course the dance sequences and weddings, weddings, weddings. Suraj Sharma and Pallavi Sharda make a great onscreen couple as Ravi and Asha, the main leads. Although this is primarily a rom-com, it does highlight important themes and real-life lessons.
This is one Nigerian movie you should definitely watch. Not only is it an epic historical and cultural masterpiece but it also gives a glimpse into Nigeria's pre-colonial life and times. Anikulapo is a beautifully produced work of art by a master storyteller that has not only elevated Nigerian culture but also garnered acceptability and love from viewers around the world earning it a number-one ranking on Netflix.
I Came By
Sometimes, you watch a movie, and the opening scenes don't show much promise but you decide to stick with it and later find it is actually good stuff. That was my experience watching the movie I Came By. It's compelling and meaningful and will probably leave you slightly downhearted at how closely it mirrors real life. It glaringly highlights society's class divides; the challenges in providing justice to the poor, the marginalized, and the unprotected as well as how the rich, powerful, and highly connected get away with almost anything.
Love In The Villa
Two strangers -Mortal enemies. A turf war - Apologies. Enemies to friends. A misunderstanding. A profession of love - Passionate lovers - The end. Sound familiar. Yes! Like every romcom that ever was. But what would make this one stand out from the crowd? I'll tell you. It's the ambience, the history, the lovely sights and sounds, the poetry, and the celebration of fine wine and Shakespeare. Love in the Villa is a delightful movie for lovers of rom-com, travel, history, fine wine, poetry, and literature. The scenic locations, wine, spats, crazy taxi drivers, and other quirks all add to the beauty of this movie. If you enjoyed watching A Perfect Pairing, you will definitely love this movie.
