Nation Next rating: 3.5 stars
The bank is after me for recovering its loan of two lakh rupees, and the defaulters are fleeing with crores! an exasperated Shilpa Sen (Esha Deol) rakes up the prevalent issue of today’s banking system in India in the first scene of her comeback film ‘Cakewalk.’ Directed by celebrated journalist Ram Kamal Mukherjee and shot in Kolkata, Cakewalk (with Nation Next as its online media partner) revolves around chef Shilpa Sen, who divorces her disgruntled husband to pursue her dreams.
While Esha as a chef looks every bit of an independent woman, Esha, as a domesticated wife, looks as adorable as her character in her movie Just Married (2007) opposite Fardeen Khan. The biggest takeaway from the movie is: ‘Life is not a cakewalk but you can make it one by passionately chasing your dreams.’ 
Cakewalk, in its own sweet way, underscores a different hue of women empowerment, by conveying that even if the marriage isn’t a bed of roses for a woman, she can attain happiness by giving her life a new meaning. 
Cakewalk celebrates the triumphal journey of a dedicated but discredited homemaker ‘Shilpa,’ who eventually gets to prove her mettle to her ex-husband (Tarun Malhotra) with her accomplishments, after walking out of a failed marriage.

Esha Deol’s powerful portrayal of the protagonist remains the mainstay of the film throughout. Tarun looks absolutely chiseled in his 6-pack abs (thanks to his no-salt diet during the making of the film)! Anindita Bose, who plays Tarun’s second wife, grabs eyeballs with her powerful screen presence despite her limited scenes in the film.

Produced by Dinesh Gupta, Shailendra Kumar and Aritra Das, under the banner of Assorted Motion Pictures and SS One Entertainments, the film is co-directed by Abhra Chakraborty. Shailendra Sayanti has given music for the film. 
Debutant director Ram Kamal Mukherjee gets full marks for making ‘Cakewalk’ looks like a freshly baked cake, ready to serve! Ram gets to successfully capture the audience’s interest throughout the 27-minutes of the film. In fact, at the end, one feels that this cakewalk should have been longer!

And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review

Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.

From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.

So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
