  • Kadvi Hawa

    A quiet film that aims to simmer uneasiness within. But, alternating between showing life in a village and telling a story, Kadvi Hawa manages to pace itself too unevenly to create impact.

  • Tumhari Sulu

    Strong characters with even stronger performances let down by an awfully ‘meh’ climax. And such a bummer that most of the ‘fun’ moments made it to the trailer.

    Nov 2017
  • Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana

    You get a ridiculous romance free with an intense revenge drama. Unfortunately, you leave with an after-taste of the silly rom-com instead of the well-written revenge bits.

    Nov 2017
  • Qarib Qarib Singlle

    A mature romance where people are not really trying to change each other. Keeps the smile on too. But, the pace is almost soporific and has potential to disconnect you from the story.

  • Ribbon

    ...is richly textured with performances, beautifully layered with content, and sprinkled with occasional humor.

    Nov 2017
  • Ittefaq

    Hurried in its story-telling and a little too relaxed in its execution, Ittefaq makes the biggest mistake a thriller could make - it tells a gripping story instead of showing it.

  • Tu Hai Mera Sunday

    A cute comment on everyday, urban life. Becomes a little 'out there', every once in a while. But so does everyday life, right? While the philosophising is a tad lame, the romantic bits are adorable.

  • Chef

    ...made me wonder, what makes me sadder - a film which starts off very well, but ends up being just about average or one that isn't enjoyable at all.

  • Judwaa 2

    Unabashedly silly. Brings a smile or two, even if soulless – that's exactly what you expect though, right?

  • Newton

    You brace yourself for the highest degrees of scathing cynicism when you walk in to a film about India's election process. You walk out with a smile that balances the skepticism with healthy hopefulness. Those are just a few “when was the last time that happened” packed in 100+ minutes.

    Sep 2017
  • Simran

    ...has a perfectly flawed lead character, played almost to perfection by Kangna Ranaut, the film has a close-to-perfect climax too. If only, the plot didn't accelerate to being outland-ish mid-way.

    Sep 2017
  • Daddy

    If this film was made to invoke sympathy for a man who might wrongfully be in prison today, it didn't really do much in that direction. Lacking balance, it just might have pushed the audience, that can be bothered to care, even further in the other direction.

    Sep 2017
  • Baadshaho

    Delivers a story with lots of style - in the first half. Alas, you come to expect what happens in the last hour and lose the thrill along the way.

    Sep 2017
  • A Gentleman

    Comedy, action, romance – An above average entertainer in each of those elements. But, put together it becomes just about average.

    Aug 2017
  • Bareilly Ki Barfi

    Neither does it have the sparks of a romance, nor the laughs of a comedy. What it does have is some fine performances, lovely details and nuances that are not usually found in Hindi films.

    Aug 2017
  • Toilet

    Brings up many important issues related not just to religion, culture or even sanitation. It points a huge finger at sexism and the politics of both home and nation. But, is extremely preachy through most of it.

    Aug 2017
  • Raag Desh

    A war movie, a relatively lesser known independence story, a court room drama. An intense story yet not an 100% immersive experience.

    Jul 2017
  • Jagga Jasoos

    Cute, fun detective story taking on huge issues of the world. Juggles all of that well but becomes long-drawn in the process.

    Jul 2017
  • Mom

    It is slow, it is very predictable. Yet, it is watchable. That's something, right? Mostly for its performances.
