"THREE ACT TRAGEDY" (2010) Review

When I was in my early teens, I had shifted my attention from Nancy Drew mysteries to those novels written سے طرف کی Agatha Christie. And I have not stopped since. I confess that this shift in reading material was the result of seeing the 1978 movie, "DEATH ON THE NILE", for the first time. Properly hooked on Christie's works, I focused my attention on her 1934 novel, "Murder in Three Acts", also known as "Three Act Tragedy".

I have seen two adaptations of Christie's 1934 novel. The first was ویژن ٹیلی adaptation in the mid 1980s, titled "MURDER IN THREE ACTS", which...

"HALLOWE'EN PARTY" (2010) Review

Many years have passed since I last read Agatha Christie's 1969 novel, "Hallowe'en Party". Although it is not considered one of Christie's better novels, the story possessed a style that struck me as rich and atmospheric. I never forgot it. So, when I learned about ITV's 2010 adaptation of the novel, I could not wait to see it.

Directed سے طرف کی Charles Palmer and adapted سے طرف کی actor Mark Gatiss (who appeared in 2008's "APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH"), "HALLOWE'EN PARTY" begins with mystery مصنف Adrianne Oliver visiting a friend named Judith Butler in the small village of...

"PERIL AT END HOUSE" (1990) Review

I just realized something. I have never read Agatha Christie's 1932 novel, "Peril at End House". I find this ironic, considering that I have seen the 1990 ویژن ٹیلی movie adaptation of this novel at least three یا four times. One of these days, I will get around to reading Christie's novel and comparing it to the ویژن ٹیلی adaptation. Right now, I am going to focus on the latter.

Directed سے طرف کی Renny Rye and adapted سے طرف کی Clive Exton, "PERIL AT END HOUSE" is the first full-length ویژن ٹیلی movie aired on "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT". It is also about Belgian-born...

"EVIL UNDER THE SUN" (2001) Review

There have been four adaptations of Agatha Christie's 1941 novel, "Evil Under the Sun". One version was a radio play that broadcast in 1999. The Adventure Company released its own adaptation in 2007. John Bradbourne and Richard Goodwin released a movie version in 1982. However, the adaptation that has recently caught my attention is the 2001 ویژن ٹیلی movie that aired on ITV's "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT".

While dining at his friend Captain Arthur Hasting's new Argentine restaurant, Belgian detective Hercule Poirot suffers a sudden collapse. His doctor reveals...

"DEATH ON THE NILE" (2004) Review

This 2004 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel, "Death on the Nile", was the سیکنڈ to be adapted for the screen. In the case of this movie, it aired as a 90-minute presentation on the long-running ویژن ٹیلی series, "Agatha Christie’s POIROT".

Like the novel and the 1978 movie, "DEATH ON THE NILE" centered around Hercule Poirot’s investigation of the murder of an Anglo-American heiress named Linnet Ridgeway. Linnet had stolen the affections of her best friend’s fiancé and married him. When the newly married couple vacationed in Egypt, the best...

"DEATH IN THE CLOUDS" (1992) Review

There are two things one should know about Agatha Christie’s 1935 novel, "Death in the Clouds". One, it happened to be one of those "murder in a locked room" type of mysteries that she rarely wrote about. And two, I have not read the novel since high school.

I would not exactly rate ”Death in the Clouds” as one of my پسندیدہ Christie novels. But I must admit that screenwriter William Humble wrote a solid adaptation for the "AGATHA CHRISTIE’S 'POIROT'" ویژن ٹیلی series. Starring David Suchet as Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, "DEATH IN THE CLOUDS"...
