  • Kedarnath

    ...dazzles you with its scenic imagery and it's fresh pairing. But it's also a case of missed chances. Too less a time is spent on the large scale tragedy that engulfed the region. The human consequences of it, the emotional scars it left behind aren't touched upon at all.

    The film is totally paisa vasool and makes for a complete family entertainer. It's production took a lot of time but the wait has been worth it...

    It’s a neo-retro product, a place-marker of sorts for the ‘anything goes’ school of filmmaking in Bollywood, which still has some dedicated followers despite changing times...

  • Mohalla Assi

    Large portions of the film are nothing but rants by various characters about the state of the nation. While it may work in a book, the randomness of such scenes eats into the film’s narrative.

  • Pihu

    Go watch the film for a story that totally differs from the usual escapist fare that Bollywood dishes out, doesn’t have a known name as the lead and yet manages to keep you engaged...

    ...is a game changer not only for the horror genre but for Hindi cinema overall. Watch the film for its unique concept, spooky visuals and some superb acting.

    Better writing would certainly have generated more laughs. Watch the film to experience a dash of vintage Govinda. He still retains most of his tricks and let’s hope gets better films in future to showcase them.

    ...both Aayush and Warina have made decent debuts. A little more polish and a better choice of films will surely see them shine in future.

  • Andhadhun

    Watch Andhadhun for it’s zig zag storyline and spot on acting by the entire cast. It's one of those mysteries which you'll like to go back to despite knowing the ending...

  • Pataakha

    Why do the sisters hate each other -- is the question that pops up in your mind time and again. Sometimes, there is no reason either to love or hate and that’s Bhardwaj’s approach as well as the sudden transformation of their feelings towards each other is just as inexplicable. But these brief niggles aside, Pataakha is a cracker of a watch indeed, total paisa vasool on the strength of the acting alone.

    Kudos to writer and director Sharat Katariya for coming up with such a rooted tale. And kudos to Varun Dhawan for agreeing to be part of it. He has tried something totally new for him here.

    There is a line in the film -- Sabko confuse karna band kar do. That was the director talking to herself but alas she didn’t listen to her own advice.

    ...watch this relatable comedy with your family, and come back with the laughs and a better understanding of generational gap...

    ...isn’t your typical Bollywood romance. It’s not a feel-good story with a happily-ever-after ending but is something that will shake you up emotionally for all the right reasons...

    ...director Nila Madhab Panda has made a film with its heart in the right place and let’s hope the message it conveys reaches the right pockets...

  • Gali Guleiyan

    Dipesh has set the film in the dimly lit, crumbling lanes of old Delhi and tries to convince you that you’re watching two parallel stories occurring in the same timeline. He aims for a big reveal which isn’t required as the film would have flowed better without it.

    (Writers) Raj and Krishna are known for their wacky humour and they do not disappoint here too. The film is peppered with silly situations bound to keep you in splits throughout.

    ...director Anil Sharma has taken too much upon himself. Yes, he has shown us what all his son is capable of doing but neglected to give us a well-rounded film in the process.
