About

Films are similar to mirrors we hold to ourselves. We are not torn by its admission or its place in society. We feel that it never seizes to exist. It is a medium that spins its web in all its forms. It is one of the fullest medium of its kind. We have grown to adjust to its many quirks in the past 100 years. We are not shy to question its limited nature. But every day we throw challenges to it that make a stand to its authority.

Now what is all this talk about films? Where are we headed in terms of the powers of this medium? There are so many ways of taking to its form that it feels new to some but old to others. Everyday we see the rights of passages it goes through. Like for instance in this year we have seen a revival of the 3D form. Many thought cinema will also go through many difficulties with the entire economic slump in its background. But the industry stood all the days of the economic downturn by outdoing itself in terms of receipts. It is this force or pull that we have tried to look into closely through our blog.

What makes a good film? What aspects endanger its frivolity? Who are the kingpins of change in this field? We will surely not take away the commercial aspect of this form. It is what matters to its existence the audience. So are renewed interest in their understanding and feelings will be our top concerns addressed. But we will bring a fresh side to your viewing experience by adding articles of an acute nature. Many of the films need an insight or a prior viewing of some other great films. A study of all the genre shift and updates will also be accounted for. So we will advice readers to take the trouble to watch the films that are akin to the ones we review.

But an education of film is not something we are embarking on. It is more like a study of its various aspects. An avid look into how the film finally gets to its screen. Who and all matter to its being exhibited as a finished product? So come share in this journey that has been on going and don’t feel left out from this wagon.

Talking Films Crew

Contact: premshashi@gmail.com

Prem was also a part of the Reel Suave team. He had decided to take a new initiative in the form of Talking films that will take our objective to the next step. There was a concern with Reel Suave not serving its demographic. A concern we have whole heartedly addressed with the formation of Talking films. Prem has a simple policy of creating a forum for readers to interact with the changing face of cinema’s forms. He loves to give into to the dictates of film. He is also an avid watcher of several commercial releases on offer. But the camaraderie between the two writers springs from their acceptance of the power of cinema.
