Movie Review: PINK

Image Source Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Piyush Mishra, Angad Bedi. Direction: Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury Genre: Drama Duration: 2 hours 16 minutes After 'Vicky Donor', I've been a fan of anything that is creatively touched by Shoojit Sircar.

When I learnt that it was being produced by Shoojit Sircar, I had mentally booked the tickets already. My husband and I watched this movie yesterday and it still continues to play in my mind.

Escape Route

PHOTO PROMPT © Shaktiki Sharma John asked for the kitchen duty again. This time, they agreed. Earlier, he was assigned to cleaning the prison toilets.

Book Review: The Girl Who Played With Fire (Millennium Trilogy #2)

Image Source Title: The Girl Who Played With Fire Author: Stieg Larsson Publisher: Quercus; Film Tie-in edition (29 July 2010) Genre: Thriller Price: Rs. 149 on Amazon . Pages: 576 After reading ' The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo ' there is no way you can not read the other two books in the series. The first one was disturbing no doubt, but highly intriguing as well. Lisbeth Salander was an enigma to me when I read the first one. I wanted to know more about her. For the first time ever, I couldn't identify myself with the protagonist of a book. I picked up the second book hoping to find out more about her and also expecting a thrilling story line. This book too is divided in to fours parts, each of which starts off with Lisbeth's newly found love for mathematics.
