  • Island City

    ...is quite unlike any recent Hindi film. The complex narratives, laced with humour and satire, keep us enthralled while also presenting the deeper issues of life.

  • Raman Raghav 2.0

    There is real good cinema in that scene towards the end of the film, and also a reminder that Kashyap has a lot of talent. He just needs to stop making films that are very similar.

  • Aarakshan

    I wish people would see Aarakshan and instead object to Jha's vision, the execution of his muddled script, which half way through forgets its purpose, and varying degrees of unimpressive performances.

  • Dhobi Ghat

    A rare Indian film which has the feel of European and other Asian cinemas, and yet is firmly grounded in the realities of Mumbai.

  • Tees Maar Khan

    Every actor, every character -- the leads, cops, criminals, even the vast supporting cast and extras -- appear to be idiotic caricatures. The premise of the film -- although taken from After The Fox -- the writing, and dialogues emphasise and celebrate stupidity.

    ...works like many of Kukunoor's successful films -- Hyderabad Blues, Iqbal and Dor -- unique stories that start with good intentions, but eventually the treatments amount to nothing spectacular.

    ...an overwhelming film. At times a tad bit overproduced, the film is an onslaught of brilliant use of technology on the viewer's senses -- stunning cinematography, the fluidity of the camera, quick edits, loud soaring music, with the actors thrown into wild nature.
