    The Social Network – A small review

    I am watching The Social Network movie again on HBO. I watch this movie again and again and I feel  that the movie does  not portray Mark Zuckerberg as a negative character.

    Best Movie I Saw in 2007

    Well, there are many fantastic movies I saw this year.

    Pune International Film Festival

    The Pune International Film Festival is finally over. I was a delegate ( for a price of 300 bucks) and after watching 15 movies in past 7 days, I think it was worth it. I got to see some very good movies , which otherwise I wouldn’t have got chance to do so . Of course, many movies were really really boring, Actually, boring is not the word.. I think Unbearable will be the appropriate word for those . But the whole experience was very different for me and I think in the end, I enjoyed the festival . Anyways, I will write a short review ( summary) of each…
