    My friend Atul Chitnis passed away this morning after a year long battle with cancer. He was 51, and is survived by his amazing wife Shubha and daughter Geetanjali.

  • Changeling

    Its been quite a while since a movie really gripped me from the very start and then took me along with it and had more than half the theatre crying by the end of it! “Changeling” did precisely that and so much more! Its about a mother’s search for her missing son and how things […]
