  • Sui Dhaaga

    ...gives his viewers a classic story of struggle and persistence. The film culminates in a predictable climax, but that does not diminish the experience of soaking in Sui Dhaaga.

  • Fanney Khan

    Filmmaker Atul Manjrekar doesn't seem to be able to look beyond just his lead actor. Fanney Khan is an Anil Kapoor film. That is its biggest strength and weakness.

  • Race 3

    There are full-fledged military wars in Cambodia because nothing less than a war can do justice to Salman's calibre. There is Salman Khan flying over Al Shifah because helicopters are so passe. There is Bhai launching bazookas because why undermine him with lesser weapons like AK-47. There are five extra actors in the film to support Salman because he needs to outshine all of them. Nothing is measured in Race 3. You ask for a shot of Salman, you're given a gallon of him. Deal with it however you want.

  • Pad Man

    ...Balki tells viewers the tale of Pad Man and gives viewers a story to take home. And in addition to giving Akshay Kumar one of his best performances till date, Balki gifts his audience an Akshay Kumar to remember.

  • Tiger Zinda Hai

    Don't analyse, don't nitpick, don't involve logic; and you are sorted. There are many seeti-worthy moments in Tiger Zinda Hai. The film plays to Salman's gallery to the T.

  • Daddy

    Watch this gangster drama for Arjun Rampal's heartfelt performance. He breathes as Arun Gawli in Daddy. But don't go into the theatre expecting to learn anything eye-opening about the Mumbai underworld. You will come back disappointed.

  • Mom

    ...scrutinises and lays bare the gaping holes in the law in this country. Its method of making the criminals meet their fate is over-dramatised and problematic. And unbelievable. But who can say no to a tale of a mother's revenge?

  • Raabta

    ...the biggest obstacle in the path of Raabta is the story. The subject is nothing that has not been done in Indian cinema earlier. The way the story is treated takes a toll on your patience.

  • Befikre

    ...is best enjoyed when you go in without any expectations at all. The film is not boring. And that's what makes it a decent one-time watch.

  • Dear Zindagi

    The light-hearted dialogues and scenes are the high points of the film. But they too stop working after a point. At near-2.5 hours, Dear Zindagi feels too stretched.

  • Force 2

    The narrative is kept straight throughout, sans any convolutions as such. Kudos to writers Parveez Sheikh and Jasmeet K Reen for that. Force 2 has some well-choreographed action sequences with guns blazing in full glory

  • M.S. Dhoni

    We want to see heroes on screen. We want to see victory on screen. And when it's got cricket and MS Dhoni as the subject, who cares about problems in a film.
