  • PM Narendra Modi

    Since we are talking of India’s most powerful leader, naturally one expected the film to be a hagiography. And this is exactly what it is.

  • India‘s Most Wanted

    If you’re in the mood for a documentary-styled ‘real’ film, you may find something to take back from here. Having said that, in this case, the intention can be lauded, but definitely not the execution.

  • Kalank

    Three words to sum it up would be – it’s beautifully chaotic. Anyway, some movies are best seen and less analysed.

  • Romeo Akbar Walter

    As the espionage thriller’s lead actor, John, who plays a cucumber-cool spy, stays within character. But he is let down by mediocre writing and amateur direction. As a result, the pace is sluggish.

  • No Fathers In Kashmir

    The film presents a ‘controversial’ viewpoint on the Kashmir issue. Apart from this, the two youngsters — Zara and Shivam — are lovely. Give them a chance.

  • Junglee

    Atul Kulkarni, who shows up as the antagonist, is superb. However, everything else around here is amateurish.

    Mar 2019
  • Kesari

    ...the film is a must watch. It convincingly packages patriotic emotions with some superbly-crafted action.

  • Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

    The humour here is infectious, but doesn’t hold throughout. This is a film more suited for OTT viewing, which you can enjoy during a Sunday brunch with a group of buddies.

  • Photograph

    If you like romance on slow burn, Photograph might appeal to you. Otherwise, just leaf through your own albums.

    Mar 2019
  • Badla

    ...the movie feels too verbose and claustrophobic because a major portion is set inside just one room. But, if you take a deep breath and let that feeling pass, you may just find yourself "digging deep" into the proceedings.

    Mar 2019
  • Sonchiriya

    The writing by Chaubey and Sharma has as much bite as the bullets sprayed here. The attempts to tear into the soul of the dacoits and show them as real people with fears, faith and fervour, comes across effectively.

    Mar 2019
  • Total Dhamaal

    ...the pace of the first half is terrific. Before the innumerable characters are introduced and the first stone of the plot is laid, it is the intermission. The second half is tiresome.

  • Thackeray

    Don’t miss Thackeray. It’s like a gym session that gives you a high. You can actually feel the adrenaline pumping, many a time during the film.

  • Manikarnika

    Even today, an important chapter in Indian history tomes is dedicated to the Queen of Jhansi. Watch her story unfold in this lavishly-mounted screen spectacle.

  • Why Cheat India

    For a film that tackles education, the screenplay should have concentrated on plain speak. Instead, this one takes an incoherent approach.

    Jan 2019
  • Simmba tried and tested 80s Bollywood formula.  But what the hell?  If redux songs can be a super hit, retelling formula, 1000-times-over can also be super fun.

  • Zero

    Zero gets marks for Shah Rukh's experiment into a space less traveled.  If you're curious, go ahead, amuse yourelf.

  • 2.0

    ...Shankar’s story is pedestrian, plebeian and even plain puerile. But the visuals and sounds are compelling enough to keep you mesmerised at least for a bit.

  • Thugs Of Hindostan is a pity no one thought of writing a more novel story, especially when they had two superstars on board their ship. It is a pity that after spending so much  on VFX, gimmickry and virgin locales of Malta, no one thought it appropriate to fit the whole thing in with more emotion and entertainment.

  • Jalebi

    The treatment is like a Sridevi-Jeetendra-Jaya Prada South remake from the ’80s. And you don’t empathise with the leads because neither their passion nor pain translates.

    Oct 2018
  • LoveYatri

    There was a lot more that could have been managed here. But debutant director Abhiraj K Minawala has played so safe that you almost feel this is a kiddie outing rather than a movie made for young adults.

    Oct 2018
  • Pataakha

    You laugh at the parallels drawn between the two sisters and India’s love-hate relationship with Pakistan. All the profundity about not being able to choose your relatives and neighbours works. But even that metaphor doesn’t allow you to ‘enjoy’ the violent nature of this destructive relationship.
