They say risk is probably the most dangerous addictions of all. Vince Gilligan portrayed this simple yet impactful monologue with utter flawlessness in his creation, Breaking Bad.

The universally acclaimed TV series has a Guinness world record for the most acclaimed TV show of all times. No wonder this series took the world by storm with amazing story line and a plethora of brilliantly portrayed characters. Yet, a good TV show is no good if it doesn’t comment on the evils of the society.

Apart from being a heavily accoladed TV series, Breaking Bad focuses on certain aspects. In other words it spans across all the spectrum of sanity.

Raise Hell


The first impact comes from the name itself. Breaking Bad is actually a Southern Colloquialism for “Raise Hell”. The sharp story line brilliantly focus on a man’s descent to the world of crime under sheer stress.
It connects with a normal person’s life, fluctuations in personality, and finally, outcome with ease.

Genuine approach


Every character having the ideal amount of screen time, coupled with probably the best dialogues ever.
The famed TV series doesn’t shy from showcasing reality behind “good face”. The best part being Walter White’s sudden change into something he never approved of. Even Anna Gunn’s role as Skyler has it’s fair share of dark content.



Even though Walter White and Jesse Pinkman never share same beliefs yet when it came to moral judgement, both shared a dramatic same taste. The series focus on moral judgments and their effect on audience.

Family issues

Being a “normal guy’s” story. The series portray the lifestyle of a common man, ranging from his first meal of the day to his office work deadlines, to paying fee while being bankrupt. It engages every essence of being a normal guy.



From Walter White’s descent under Jesse’s influence into the underworld to Jesse’s redemption, the series fills up to the brim with important, life changing choices which are really hard to make. The commentary on the important choices show the brutal realities of life.



Perhaps a befitting end to an absolutely flawless drama series resides in Breaking Bad’s last season. The path to perdition showcase a broad storyline of every character and influence over the other. The last take on the overall series was well received by critics and fans from Walter White’s eventual death to Jesse’s escape into the brighter side of the world. Breaking Bad hooked up the people to the very last shot. The greatest judgement over a man’s motives and actions was a powerful message.

It’s probably hard to fathom of any other TV series so addictive as Breaking Bad. On an honest note the drama series has been an artwork. Even after its end back in 2013, it still tells a brilliant tale which continues to inspire every one of us in fighting off our inner demons.

Raazi Review: Some thriller creates suspense and what if this espionage is about PATRIOTISM?

Ameesha Saxena




‘A strong woman stands for Herself,

A stronger woman stands for her Family,

A Strongest woman stands for her Country.’

Some captured moments cannot be just judged by awards, they stay unsaid, unpicked and unheard

This Meghna Gulzar movie ‘Raazi’ is an epitome recon of surveillance and intelligence. The thriller blends over the flashback history of Indo-Pakistan war in 1971 of a Kashmiri spy married to a Pakistani Army officer. The mirth and bombarded in the movie shakes up the heads of society. The movie is the adaption of ‘ Harinder Sikka’s ‘ novel “Calling Sehmat”. The bravery and the triumph  of this Kashmiri girl is heart-throbbing.


The Emotional Wit

Raazi paradigms of faith and the enshrining spirits of bravery links its wit with the emotional connect. The war pace tears in the eyes of each woman.


Kashmir’s Valour

Kashmir, our very own Kashmir, which of late has been unfortunately labelled with unrest and unattached with the rest of the country, can produce acts of valour, as depicted from the trailer of Raazi.


The Prodigious Role of Alia

The movie has smashed the amazeballs on YouTube and every news scripts. The  phenomenal woman empowerment graced the double role of the golden woman. The mindful cognizance of a ‘spy’ to protect her country to indulge herself in danger is explicitly shown in the appalling role of a ‘Pakistani wife’ who sacrifices her life to protect many lives.


The sacrifice for nation

The spirit of patriotism develops from the first cry for its motherland. Such sacrifice for nation is a blessing . ‘Serving the nation comes first until you die’. This proud sentiment leads up the head to the happiness of seventh stage.


Some wonders are just astonishing when they stay unsaid. All the spirits and winning doesn’t need the medals, for the highest award and reward is raw and wild patriotism. Yes, it’s just sacrifices which create beauty in heart — In the hearts of the nation — and develops, nurtures nationalism in the hearts of the viewers.


For ‘Raazi’ ‘Raazi’ ‘Raazi’!


‘You Owe’

‘You Respect’

‘You bleed’

‘In the blood flowing ‘Our Country first’!

“You stand in the presence of Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains.”

That’s the introduction to the beautiful Emilia Clarke known as “Khaleesi” in the epic saga we call as Game of thrones. The character she portrayed from the first season was that of a subtle, calm and innocent Princess who is longing to just go back to her home where her ancestors originally lived .

The first ever title she gains is that of Khaleesi when she is  married off to Khal (King) Drogo of the Dothraki clan. She regains herself after the death of his Khal realizing that she is the rightful Targaryen for the Iron Throne and not her brother.

Lets see why we should get inspiration from the Daughter of the Mad King, Daenerys Targaryen.


Daenerys never wanted to marry Khal drogo but still sacrified herself to the barbaric and ruthless dothrakis. She did so on her brother, Viserys Targaryen’s command.

She followed the Dothraki tradition of eating  a raw heart of a stallion before giving birth to a child. She walked into the fire with her Dragon eggs later gave birth to 3 dragons. This added the titles of the “Unburnt and mother of dragons”.

She reached Astapor in Slavers bay and freed all the 800 Unsullied army. She bought all the slaves in the Yunkai city, hereby gaining the title of “Breaker of chains”.


Daenerys has always appreciated suggestions given by her close apprentices like Ser Jorah ,Misandei and Daario. And later, she incorporated The Imp, Tyrion Lannister as the Hand of the Queen. She knew when to take the suggestion and when to act like a queen.


Daenerys led the clan of Dothrakis to travel on sea which they had never experienced. Being an outsider and leading wild Dothrakis, The Unsullied, The second sons and the dragons was a challenge. The confident, strong and independent Khaleesi outgrew the level of expectation every time she decided to do something.

Well! She can’t be praised enough for the character she portrays  so effortlessly and befittingly. The character reminds us that we women are the KHALEESI in our own eyes. Only then the world would recognise our worth.

VALAR MORGHULIS(All men must die)

But then we are not men!
