Rochak Saxena

Rochak Saxena a Mass Media Teacher, former journalist at DNA and an ardent lover of Hindi films - literally. The blog derives its name from the popular term ‘Willing Suspension of Disbelief’, most commonly used in the world of literature and cinema. Meaning to immerse yourself in an unreal world (where you know what you see on screen is fake) with a self-proclaimed/declared belief/wish to consider it real, the willing world becomes magical. It’s the same magic every Friday that drives Rochak to share things in the perspective that it needs to be observed with. Every film is different. And the difference needs to be cherished.

THOUGH KANGANA IMPRESSES, SIMRAN LACKS EMOTIONS. IT’S VERY BASIC..

After watching ‘Simran’, there’s one thing that you ask- why was this film even made? Did it try to give a message? Or did it attempt empowering women? Or was it for sheer entertainment? Because…

EVEN WITH A THOUGHT PROVOKING PLOT, SAMEER FAILS TO CONNECT…!

BAADSHAHO, AN EXTREMELY SUPERFICIAL FILM WITH WASTE OF GREAT ACTORS…
