  • Irada

    Films with social causes at its core work, but only if​ ​they manage to resonate with you in some way. This one doesn’t, at least not to the degree you’d like it to.

  • Tum Bin 2

    The first half kinda builds you up while the meandering second half brings you down with its inordinate length.

    Nov 2016
  • Akira

    While Murugadoss leaves a lot to be desired, it is a satisfying one-time watch for an action-junkie.

    Sep 2016
  • Veerappan

    The return of RGV to Bollywood's consciousness. He's not completely in his usual element here, but there are flashes of his brilliance here, and these, sadly, are few and far between.

    May 2016
  • Wazir

    Worth one visit for sure for AB Sr's superlative acting and some ceetee-worthy dialogue. As a thrilling drama, it has some bite, but as a suspenseful tale, it lacks teeth.

  • Manjhi

    It makes you proud that such Indian lived among us and makes a compelling case against Indian politicians and the bureaucracy.

    Aug 2015
  • Drishyam

    This film isn't so much a whodunnit as much as it is a why- and how-dunnit. But it takes too much time building a convincing case of it.

  • Dharam Sankat Mein

    If this film has uncomfortable moments, it's the preachy parts. The film gets lost somewhere in the middle around some unwanted melodrama.

  • Khamoshiyan

    Find a cheap morning show if you're really keen on catching this one. Or don't. Even if you're a fan of any of these 'actors' or 'writer' or 'director'. Unless you're a glutton for punishment.

    Jan 2015
  • I

    Too long, too contrived but a good-looking leave-your-brains-at-home film.

    Jan 2015
  • Ugly

    It may be all things dark and forbidding this festive season, but it is, with flaws and all, one of the best films you'll watch this year.

    Dec 2014
  • Zid

    Take an aspirin before walking into this one. Twists and cuckoo-ness apart, it's curiously not that much of a suspense story. You kinda figure that out in the first half itself.

    Nov 2014
  • Happy Ending

    If only Raj-DK had kept it as short,simple and precise, this would be recommended as a two-time watch. In its current avatar, one should be more than enough.

    Nov 2014
  • Yeh Faasley

    Too self-indulgent, Yeh Faasley only serves to widen the distance between you, the viewer and the object of attention, the film itself.
