    At a time when intolerance is at an all time high, we need more such efforts to remind us of the common humanity that binds us. Kudos to director Aijaz Khan for his all heart endeavour.

  • Bareilly Ki Barfi

    Watch the film for some good, clean fun. It will give you ample laughs throughout and you’ll walk away from the theatre with a satisfied smile on your face...

    It’s rare to see a layered film. It’s rare to see a film where everything falls into place. It’s rarer still where actors leave their stardom behind and behave like normal people, have normal conversations, have normal reactions, normal emotions.

    ...is definitely a step in right direction for Indian cinema. Let’s hope it paves the way for more story-centric films in future.

    It’s a reexamination of the life of one of our most controversial film stars and Rajkumar Hirani has made every episode seem as real as it could get. But the treatment is such that you don’t end up feeling like you’ve watched a news documentary. Humour is both Hirani’s sword and shield and he has used it well.

  • Raazi

    ...it's one of the most fiercely patriotic films you'll ever see. That a female star holds centre stage makes for a welcome change. Alia Bhatt’s histrionics alone are worth the price of the ticket.

    In times where rapid radicalisation of the majority religion is taking place, these are unpopular questions which will surely make some people uncomfortable.

  • Laila Majnu

    ...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...

  • Karwaan

    Watch the film for the fine acting by the entire ensemble cast. This comedy will surely tickle your funny bone and would make you reflect on life as well...

  • Manikarnika

    Kangana looks to the manor born playing Laxmibai. She channels the spirit of the warrior queen and is her fierce best in war scenes and also manages to give us the glimpse of the icon's soft side.

    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...

  • Thackeray

    ...Thackeray’s legacy when it comes to Mumbai and Maharashtra politics can’t be denied. He became a god for millions and this biopic comes close to introducing us to his persona. That said, he was more than the sum of images that the present film invokes and maybe we won’t ever get the true picture...

  • Finding Fanny

    Go watch the film for its wealth of quirky characters dealing with everyday crisis and emerging richer in the process. It will surely put a smile to your face, if nothing else…

  • Gold

    There's a silly grin on your face as forgetting the grim reality of today, you feel proud to be an Indian, for a few moments at least...

  • Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga

    ...full marks to debutante director Shelly Chopra Dhar for making a heartfelt film about a topic that needs to be brought out in the open. Let’s hope the film gets people talking about it, especially in our small towns and villages, where closed mindsets still prevail.

  • Veere Di Wedding

    Director Shashanka Ghosh has managed to develop the right chemistry between his four leads and that’s the film’s greatest strength -- that beneath all the cuss words and sex jokes you get a whiff of genuine friendship.

  • Tumbbad

    ...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.

  • Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi

    The film has a cracking first half which just zooms by. The second half lags a bit but only because the director is trying to tie all the strands together. But overall, the impact doesn't waver and that's what counts in the long run...

    Aug 2018
  • Simmba

    ...the film is as massy as they come. The punch dialogue, slow motion action, quirky dance moves -- it's all there and more. And Ranveer takes to this new avatar like fish to water.

  • Kai Po Che!

    ...heart-warming tale about passion, friendship and forgiveness. It not only will entertain you, it might also strengthen your faith that good Hindi cinema isn’t dead yet.
