  • Gold

    The conflict is fine, the principle characters beautifully etched, but what drags the film down is its predictability and its slow pace.

  • Redrum

    They claim the film is based on an Edgar Allan Poe's story: The Tell Tale Heart, but you know it's based on every cinematic cliche they could think up of and you know you can never get 100 minutes of your life.

  • Vishwaroop II

    ...even though this is an action film, it takes effort to stay awake through totally implausible things happening on the screen. And for a Kamal Haasan fan, a huge disappointment to acknowledge that vanity overtook his talent.

  • Fanney Khan

    The film is based on a story from a Dutch film 'Everybody is Famous', but for a music based story the music isn't up to par. What shines are performances for Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. Everyone else, especially his daughter deserve a good hiding.

  • Sanju

    This is a work of fiction masquerading as a biopic. And Rajkumar Hirani may have violins standing by to manipulate emotions, and he has Ranbir Kapoor mimicking Sanjay Dutt's mannerisms, but the movie remains a vanilla version of a life full of violence induced by drugs, guns, bad company and women.

  • Race 3

    If you've seen Race movies, then you will know that everyone double crosses everyone else in really tacky disco, hotel settings. Everyone drives really expensive cars that are shown in wild car chases and expensive cars are blown up without impunity.

  • Parmanu

    John Abraham needs to be applauded for choosing unusual stories. That said, if the execution of this film weren't so shabby, 'Parmanu - The Story Of Pokhran' would have been a taut thriller.

  • Khajoor Pe Atke

    There's nothing subtle about this film. There's no dark comedy here. There's only loud acting, ghastly music and comic sounds that deafen you and blind you to the really, really funny bits in the film.

  • Omerta

    The staccato storytelling style and the constant shift between past and present is distracting at best. Unfortunately there is no emotional takeaway from the story, so you watch the stabbings and the kidnappings wondering 'what was that?'

  • 102 Not Out

    ...if you step away from the casting coup, the loud violins that accompany the moralising and the mawkish sentimentality could put you off. Should have been a Sunday afternoon theatrical production, with a family hug afterwards...

  • Daas Dev

    Sarat Chandra Chatterjee's classic but simple love triangle of Paro, Devdas and Chandramukhi is turned on its head and complicated needlessly by setting the story in a lawless, political background in Uttar Pradesh.

  • Beyond The Clouds

    Majid Majidi comes to India and falls for the poverty is beautiful trap. After that, he simply rolls from one cliche to another and another until you just shake your head in despair.

  • Baaghi 2

    It's full of corny manufactured situations and characters, and dialog that make you choke on the cheese nachos. So bad, it's good.

  • Hichki

    The film checks all the boxes of stereotypes and yet only a couple of scenes manage to touch you. It's neither Dangerous Minds, nor is it To Sir With Love. Rani Mukherji needed a stronger, smarter script.
