Netflix’s GHOUL (2018) Review: Setting Milestones For India

Let me just start with how happy I am that India has finally started bringing such great shows to Netflix. Well, Love Per Square Foot was obviously a big miss, but I loved Lust Stories and Sacred Games. However, Ghoul is my absolute favourite today. It is short, it is thrilling and I found the…

Counterpart S01E02 “Birds Of A Feather” Review — Uncovering Secrets

Counterpart returns after a very interesting pilot to further the events that unfolded the previous week, after our introduction to this bizarre world and its many possibilities. Still going the slow-burn route, the narrative develops significantly ― exploring the central conflict in greater detail and establishing existing character roles firmly while also paving the way…
