A dutch movie designed to showcase the terrifying face of spirituality and religion. The plot includes 18-year-old Layla, a dutch girl having Moroccan descent, whom Islamophobia irritates in society.

Come Sunday

A Netflix movie that is entirely based on the American Christian minister’s life and on the life of former pastor Carlton Pearson. The plot of the movie follows bishop Carlton person’s historical journey, who was at a post of celebrity in the Pentecostal and charismatic Christian communities. But once he took a wild turn towards the inclusion idea and started preaching to people like there is no hell. His own church called him a pariah. He had a lot of emotional and social distractions, but he cared for none and focussed on preaching his message that says, “Hell is what humans create for themselves on earth, Heaven is for all.”

Slowly, Pearson got to know as a phenomenal orator and the disciple of the late oral Roberts, who was renowned with the name of pioneer of televangelism. Come Sunday’s movie focuses on the person’s hell rejection and the events that got unfold rather than chronicling the life of the celebrity. Joshua Marston directed this movie from a screenplay that Marcus Hinchey wrote.


Well, at many stages, an outsider asks several questions about the society we live in. In the Indian movie ‘PK,’ an alien who came on earth after a crash in landing raises a lot of questions about things on which we believe as rigid customs and universal norms. The alien, Pk, provokes the establishment in the society with his decent questions about spirituality, beliefs, religion, custom, laws, and much more. People try their best to mistake him in the name of god. He is beaten a lot and even finds love but gets no answers to all of his questions. Rajkumar Hirani directed the movie PK that features Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. Pk got to be one of the biggest hits in the cinema and got rave reviews from the Indian critics.
