New Delhi, September 23, 2017:  Google has launched a new feature which will allow the users to contribute to movie and television reviews within Google Search results.

The tech giant,  Google confirmed that the new feature is available only in India on web, mobile and the app in English.

The feature allows the user to submit the reviews which are automatically filtered for any inappropriate content.  It can also be flagged by individual users if something inappropriate manages to get through the company’s system.

After a user submits review, it will appear in the Knowledge Panel for various TV shows and movies at the top of the search results on Google.in.

Google declined to comment on its plans to expand its new reviews feature beyond the Indian market.

The new feature is similar to the “restaurant reviews” contributed by the users, which shows details like store hours, location, busy times and critics reviews of various restaurants in Google’s Knowledge Panel.

Earlier this week, Google had rolled out a feature in Search for users in the US to check if an e-book is available to borrow from the local library.

When searching for a book, the “Get Book” tab shows a “Borrow ebook” section, which lists public library systems nearby with a link to open the webpage and borrow.

  • The merge of three stories form the crux of the story.
  • Characters were one-dimensional and did not develop with the plot.
  • Saif Ali Khan’s performance was remarkable.

Kaalakaandi, a Saif Ali Khan starrer, is the directional debut of Delhi-Belly’s writer Akshat Verma. The movie is set in Mumbai revolving around people who do things which are right and wrong, following which they wonder if what they did was right.

This is not the movie you should watch if you are looking for quirky-laughter moments. The film aims at showcasing the ‘dark side’ of people.

However, the characters are totally one-dimensional and face no development as the story moves forward. Even though Saif’s performance has been remarkable, the screenplay is said to have been ‘half-baked’.

It is dark humour and particularly, a thriller. The films had three independent stories in the frame, which form the crux when they merge.
