  • Fanney Khan

    ...has the right plot premise. But the whole treatment is so convoluted, it makes you want to scream for help because it appears like a bunch of amateurs were behind the scenes.

  • Karwaan

    Actually, the thing with Karwaan is, it doesn't know what it wants to be. Akarsh is confused between making a light, breezy comedy and a dark, soul-searching film; so it oscillates between a fun-ride and a dark-drag, leaving you with no real emotion.

  • Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3

    At least it had mystery and it was told honestly with some amount of panache. Be warned; the third installment in injurious to health. It lacks substance, style, spirit and spunk.

  • Dhadak

    The nice thing about Dhadak is that it neither overwhelms nor underwhelms you. It pushes all the right buttons and when you leave the theatre, you are satisfied.

  • Sanju

    Frankly you don’t need to be a fan or a friend or family member of Sanjay Dutt to invest emotionally in this film. Even if you have a vicarious bent of mind (which most of have) you will take away a lot from Sanju.

  • Race 3

    ...is not even boasting of being an intelligible film which has been made to clear the cobwebs in your mind. It is an ostentatious, over-the-top Salman Khan vehicle, made for his fans between the ages of 5 and 60 (like me!).

  • 102 Not Out

    ...the main reason to watch this film is the fact that it brings together two of Indian cinema’s finest talents — Amitabh and Rishi — after a gap of 27 years.

    May 2018
  • Omerta

    Interspersing news footage — from the ’90s until the recent Mumbai 26/11 attacks — with a glamourised version of Omar’s life, it does manage to provide an overview of a contemporary terror hero.

  • Raid

    Watch Raid because despite the corruption around us, we still believe we can win the war against black money hoarders. Also, watch it for Ajay Devgn’s intensity.

  • Mukkabaaz

    Kashyap is still one of Hindi cinema’s better storytellers. His films definitely shake you from your reverie. So for those who don't wish to just sleepwalk through life, this Kashyap kand is a must.

  • Firangi

    ...this film is a wasted exercise in story-telling. It is an even more frustrating movie experience.

  • Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana

    ...it’s a film that had potential to be a sweet love story. However, this one doesn’t quite get there because it’s not passionate enough on any count—be it in its social messaging--or be it in the romance.

  • Ittefaq

    Instead of the having the edge-of-the-seat quality that brain twisters ideally should, this one is a tiresome cat-and-mouse chase.

    Nov 2017
  • Bhoomi

    ...every cloud has a silver living; Bhoomi has Sanjay Dutt. Returning to the marquee after his incarceration, the actor wears the lines of his face with confidence.

  • Simran

    Frankly, you can't emotionally invest in Simran or root for her as much as you might want to. But when you watch the film, you will find yourself warming up to her occasionally, because she's all you've got. Let's give Kangana her due.

    Sep 2017
  • Bareilly Ki Barfi

    The writers Nitesh Tiwari (director and writer of the much-acclaimed blockbuster Dangal )and Shreyas Jain have put together a sweet, identifiable crowd-pleaser that excels in the writing, direction, acting and music departments.

  • Toilet

    So whether you have pressing matters to attend to or not, please take a detour to this toilet. Each of us needs to raise a stink about what our countrymen do in the open.

    Aug 2017
  • Jab Harry Met Sejal

    The script is wafer-thin and it’s been done to death by none other than Imtiaz Ali in each of his earlier films—be it Jab We Met, Cocktail or the recent Tamasha. It’s the routine girl is engaged elsewhere story but she discovers half-way through the film that she is actually attracted to someone else.

    Aug 2017
  • Mubarakan

    ...you just have to go through this garrulous, laugh-out-loud affair with the usual patience and perhaps even some perseverance that you usually reserve for Bollywood comedies such as this one.
