MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) A good story with great potential wasted due to a weak screenplay and lack of star-cast.

 
CONS –
1) A zombie comedy trying to recreate the magic of Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Zombieland (2009) but can’t catch up due to weak screenplay and direction.
2) Except for Karan Soni, the entire cast is disappointing. Brenton Thwaites in the lead makes no sense.

Miracle Workers (Season 1)

ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) A light-hearted fantasy black-comedy with a great central concept of God.
2) Great casting. Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi delivered as expected. Karan Soni as Sanjay is clearly the winner of this series. Dopinder was no fluke, Soni is currently the best actor of Indian-origin in Hollywood.
3) The opening sequence with a new version “The Ecstasy of Gold” by Ennio Morricone.
4) The concept of God’s parents and he being the runt-of-the-litter.

 

CONS –
N/A
