MS Dhoni: The Untold Story Review

Ten minutes into MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, the character of Dhoni’s mother looks at her sleeping 10-year-old son with a smile and says to her husband,”My son is not someone who is going to be satisfied with small achievements, he is destined for bigger things”.

Arrival Review

When I watched the trailer for Arrival, fresh from the torture I endured watching Independence Day: Resurgence, I instantly ruled it out as another banal alien-invasion story with slightly better CGI.
