The Archies

Directed by Zoya Akhtar, The Archies, based on the comic of the same name, was released on Netflix on December 7, 2023. It received mostly dismayed reactions from the Janta. 

Ever since Netflix announced ‘The Archies’, we were all waiting for it. It seemed like the movie would have something in store for everyone- The Archies characters for the comic fans, a small Anglo-Indian town, retro clothes, aesthetic setting and vibes, and a team of actors giving their debut performance. Moreover, the film is directed by Zoya Akhtar who rarely disappoints. Now that the movie is finally here, it is indeed the talk of the town.

However, the bad news is that the film hasn’t lived up to the hype and expectations. It's mostly getting negative reviews from the public. Some have liked it with Vedang Raina (Reggie Mantle) receiving quite some praise. However, it seems that The Archies was unable to make any impact on the audience.
