  • Angrezi Medium

    Irrfan Khan, as we know, was undergoing treatment for a near-fatal disease and was in much pain throughout the shooting of the film. So kudos to him for overcoming the odds and giving us another masterful performance. We only wish the script should have matched his heroic effort...

  • Baaghi 3

    ...ultimately it’s Tiger Shroff’s show all the way. He slices and dices through the opposition with the finesse of a ballet dancer. He seriously needs better scripts sometimes soon to do better justice to his enormous talent...

  • Thappad

    Hat's off to director Anubhav Sinha for making yet another well-meaning and powerful film asking all the right questions.

  • Bhoot – Part One

    Applying more efforts in the writing department would have turned it into a genuinely scary movie. It's said to be the first part so let's hope director Bhanu Pratap Singh learns from the mistakes and does a better job while bringing out the instalment...

  • Love Aaj Kal

    ...it's all done in such a haphazard manner that you tend to lose interest. Or rather, you don't invest emotionally in the characters.

  • Shikara

    Though a mass exodus is shown, the hurdles this huge group of people must have faced are all but glanced over. It’s as if the director doesn’t want to go there. This reluctance steals the film of some of its gravitas.

    ...is a flawed but entertaining product and would be especially liked by those who are fans of slasher flicks.

  • Jawaani Jaaneman

    ...the well-acted and well-crafted Jawaani Jaaneman is a light-hearted treatise on owning up to life’s responsibilities. This frothy comedy is total paisa vasool indeed.

  • Panga

    It makes the right kind of noise about women empowerment without being preachy. And it's a whole lot of fun besides.

  • Sab Kushal Mangal

    ...does make the right noises about how dowry still makes life hell for the girls and that they should be allowed to make their own choices. It asks questions but doesn’t offer any concrete solutions.

  • Shimla Mirchi

    Watch the film to catch a whiff of a bygone era where romance was all about a boy meeting a girl in picturesque locales. Shimla is no longer the visual paradise it used to be and sadly the formula too is past its sell-by date..

  • Chhapaak

    With another mature, cause-based film in her kitty, Meghna Gulzar has once again shown it's possible to marry art with mart.

  • Good Newwz

    ...is loud, silly and cheesy in places but is also funny by and large. It does make you laugh and hence this adult comedy is certainly worth a one-time watch...

  • Mardaani 2

    ...is Rani Mukerji's show all the way and she lives and breathes her character. It's easily one of her best performances till date.

    Watch the film for its opulence, it's well-choreographed fight scenes, as well as a colourful lesson in history.

  • Commando 3

    ...Vidyut Jammwal executes his stunts with a superhumanly fast and furious speed in the hope that his antics will take our mind off the asinine plot. Guess what, at times at least, he succeeds...

  • Marjaavaan

    If Marjaavaan is an attempt to turn Sidharth Malhotra into a bonafide massy action star then it fails to do so on all counts.

  • Bala

    Ayushmann has gotten under the skin of his complex character with aplomb. The angst, the insecurity felt by him is almost palpable. Cause-based films do bring out the best in him and the question is how long his romance with such subjects would continue...

    ...while the film does raise some important issues, it suffers from faulty execution. It comes across as a missed opportunity at best...
