Petta (2019) starring Rajinikanth and Directed by Karthik Subbaraj will be a celebration for all. Enjoy the festival season with this film. When the film was announced it had a dozen plus star cast and I was a bit worried about how the Director will balance them all.

This is not a sequel to The Amazing Spider Man 2, but a parallel narration. Spider-Man (2018) is an animation film about Miles Morales, a teenage boy of African-American race, accidentally becoming a spiderman and tasked with saving the entire universe he is living from being destroyed by the villain Kingpin. Kingpin is building a particle accelerator to access parallel universes to…
