With this epic comedy drama, Damien Chazelle is back after his successful movies like La La Land (2016) and Whiplash (2014).

The characters in the movie have a whole another take on madness.

Actors like Brad Pitt, Li Jun Li, Jovan Adepo, Diego Calva and Margot Robbie did excellent work on the characters that they played. Every single actor has worked exceptionally in their roles.

The most eye catching role was of Nellie LaRoy played by Margot Robbie, she perfectly played the character of a wannabe girl.

Diego Calva also did an amazing work of portraying Manuel Torres who after getting a job through Jack (Brad Pitt’s character) rises up in the studio work chain and is in love with Nellie without her knowing about it.

Babylon is a story of assimilation in the early years of Hollywood.

The movie also shows how sometimes humans try to outrun each other in the race of life ignoring the right thing we should be doing.

Babylon has many scenes that are very intense and violent for a lot of the audience, but still has a beautiful comedic drama story to it.

The movie has many excellent scenes that show a little detour into the underworld and the downside of having connections with wrong people.

The score that was used for the movie is excellent, for which it was even nominated and won many awards.

Overall the movie Babylon touches many points and is an epic drama comedy that is a must watch.

But at the same time the viewer should keep in mind about the extreme scenes that are shown in the movie.
