      No not at all..
      syeraa narasimha Reddy is a biopic.
      If you expect commercial contant in biopic definitely you will not get it.
      This is a real story of a person called narasimha Reddy a freedom fighter
      Bollywood always like the masala movies with more romantic scenes and vulgarity show on the heroins
      Not the movie on mother land.
      Watch the biopic as a biopic in real story they can't add your Bollywood masalas , kissing and romantic scenes.

      The insight to take away from Joker is how we treat down trodden and psychologically disturbed people in our society..

    What a regressive channel this has become. Violence? Graphic? Can't get the mindless criticism of Joker. I mean it was not even half as violent or graphic as Deadpool for which you guys had raving reviews.
    Bharadwaj Rangan is lightyears ahead in film criticism from the rest of you guys. This podcast or channel won't be half as good without his inputs.

          Please don’t get Baddy in these discussions. Firstly the tech is annoying and it feels disconcerting as a viewer. It breaks the flow. Also he ends up rambling a lot and it doesn’t feel like part of the conversation.

              I watched joker hoping to see true evil portrayed on screen but all i could see was myself. Theres nothing special about him. Nothing different thats makes him evil, maybe thats what the move makers wanted to show us....

                Sorry to say, but how can the film companion team be so dismissive about a masterpiece like Joker? And the audacity to compare it to a film like Kabir Singh? Did they even understand Joker? How does Rahul Desai have the guts to talk so loosely about Todd Philips? Really disturbing!

                  Movies don't need to(and shouldn't) have takeaways, or moral balance. Bad guys rob and run; good guys die. Just take them for what they are. You don't have to relate with the hero/villain. Just forget right/wrong and good/bad of the characters, and judging based on it.

                    War is unintentional comedy film. By no standards its a good film. Your crush for Hritick is okay but South Indians can not idolize Chiranjeevi. What sort of rubbish is this.

                        Sucharita ji- war has immense female presence for you I guess compared to syera(which was based in mid 19th century where females didn't have the kind of role to play except few charismatic ones)
                        Don't let hate make u a biased reviewer pls.

                                          You guys yourselves are judging yourselves that you are right judges and you are insensitive to audience's reaction to your reviews. And you want the Audience to be positive about your reviews when you think you have a right to be positive or negative about giving a review...?? How hypocritical...?? Anupama has degraded herself by associating with stupids.

                                            If you are reviewing 'Joker' as a bad film, you are living in Mars. You guys would even review 'Breaking Bad' as a bad series !!

                                                You people don't have the understanding and capability to review a movie like Joker. It was gone over your head. I mean I watched some ordinary YouTuber's review and they reviewed the film much better than you guys and you guys claim that you are professional film critics. I mean come on. Joker is a masterpiece and it got 8 minutes standing ovation and you can't even discuss it properly that why you didn't like it. Just saying ohhh it is dark and depressing blah blah blah but don't even come across why it is so dark and depressing. you guys deserve to review meaningless shitty hindi films like WAR. I mean seriously......................

                                                  Oh my god. Really? He's one of the most notorious villains in cinematic history! What else do you expect? Discussion around this movie and Kabir Singh can't be the same and if people think it's same, It's absolutely stupid. God father is an absolute cinematic masterpiece, but if you're going to look for social messages, I don't know what you're going to end up with. Was never this disappointed with their review before.

                                                    They are not asking for social messages in cinema. All they are saying is(I think) that the movie glorifies the character and his actions, which shouldn't be. The movie should understand it's social responsibility. Talking of great movies, even Scorsese's Taxi Driver is hailed as a cinematic masterpiece, but it did inspire the assassination attempt of Ronald Reagan.

Syera is getting huge response in South y not in North.Huge collections in Telugu states .I do know what's happening with Bollywood movie lovers.We Bollywood movie lovers are partial towards our movies.

The character has always been loved for his dark and twisted humour. Most of his portrayals are evil and violent, and been for decades. You should in the very f-ing least get that before you watch or review a movie. And again he is not mentally stable .. which is clear if you watch the movie
                                                                                  And read you damn comments so you can see reviews to your review

But pls stop this video call bullshit, his voice echoes and that spoil the entire mood man. Anu mam I think u can afford that much atleast, go get him in office or shoot his part separately and merge in videos. I think u guys read comments and care about them hoping for improvement in next talk movies. Currently stopped video at 4:57 , don't disappoint me just like government anu mam.
