The Lie

It is the most normal and natural human habit to protect and save one’s child, whatever be the folly. Writer-director Veena Sud offers an incisive account of this in her tightly edited and gripping, The Lie, part of Blumhouse’s horror anthology, now streaming on Amazon. Both television and cinema have featured how some of the most horrific crimes are covered – sometimes by parents, as in The Lie. Here we are made to believe that the incident was a freak one, but actually it was murder.

Emily in Paris

The Darren Star-created series, Sex and the City, had a long run from 1998 to 2004, and despite its enormous popularity, it had critics. They felt it lacked racial diversity. Star’s latest, a Netflix outing, Emily in Paris, addresses this while staying with the upper crust of society, talking about its travails and painting a glossy picture.

Putham Pudhu Kaalai

Amazon Prime’s first anthology in Tamil, Putham Pudhu Kaalai of five shorts was remarkable for its emotional quotient, laced with superb performances. Shot during the recent lockdown, the five movies have been helmed by different directors each well-known in South Indian cinema. The first four of them are set in affluent households.
