Welcome to OTTplay Lost and Found, one podcast that gives you info about critically acclaimed films and shows that are lesser-known. I'm your host Nikhil.

The 2005 film, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, was Shane Black’s directorial debut. The noir murder mystery garnered acclaim for its unique aesthetic, compelling characters, and engrossing plot. The film also served as a platform for Robert Downey Jr to help revitalize his career, after serving time in prison for drug-related issues. It was also Val Kilmer's last major role in an action film, as well as a launchpad for Michelle Monaghan’s career. 

This under-appreciated masterpiece received standing ovations at film festivals, including The Cannes film festival even though it bombed at the box office. The film remains among the few noir-mystery films that was well-received by the critics, a genre that is struggling to keep up in the new age of overtly stylized superhero films. The film’s unapologetic take on contemporary issues through its blunt screenplay has endeared it to new viewers. It is a testament to the high calibre of indie films working on a constrained budget. 

If you haven't watched this flick yet then do so streaming on Hungama Play.

Well that's the OTTplay Lost and Found episode for today. I shall be back again pretty soon with a new episode until then it's your host Nikhil signing out.
