  • Saat Uchhakkey

    ...has little going for it, but the movie might be worth its 139-minute running time for those who know only 19 ways to insult their mothers and sisters and have merely four phrases to describe the manner in which the human posterior can be punished.

  • Dhanak

    ...it is simply too cheerful and unconvincing to work as an Indian avatar of Iranian movies that feature adorable children grappling with adult problems.

  • Indu Sarkar

    ...is a valuable addition to a slim catalogue of films about the excesses of the period even though it lacks the political insights of the better works about the Emergency.

  • Jolly LLB 2

    Despite its liberal and humanist values and attempts to create a convincing portrait of the workings of the Indian legal system, Jolly LLB 2 is frequently guilty of dramatic overreach.

    Feb 2017
  • Munna Michael

    The undemanding and unpretentious script races from start to finish, pausing to give Shroff numerous opportunities to display his outstanding dancing and fighting skills.

    Jul 2017
  • Raaz Reboot

    Why build a 127-minute narrative around false hopes, non-existent sexual frisson, non-scary horror scenes, songs that escape memory, and a plot that relies on the power of the mangal sutra to set things right?

    Sep 2016
  • 3 Idiots

    ...delivers several neatly written comic scenes and feel-good moments, but the movie isn’t as crisp and sure-footed as his Munnabhai films.

    Dec 2009
  • 404

    A tighter script and crisper running time could have vastly improved 404's chances, although the film manages to stay a few steps ahead of the usual over-long Bollywood product.

  • ABCD - Any Body Can Dance - 2

    ...boasts of a couple of popular young stars, 3D and higher production values, but it is mostly a hollow spectacle. The characters are underdeveloped, the 146-minute narrative drags, and all the energy is reserved for the elaborately staged and eye-popping dance sequences...

  • Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

    Johar’s latest movie is somewhere in between. He is trying to move away from the large-canvas romances on which he has built his career, but his foundation remains the popular Hindi film idiom, especially Yash Chopra’s cinema.

    Oct 2016
  • Agneepath

    ...richly detailed and grandly mounted sequences that just about manage to conceal the fact that this is a redundant remake.

    Feb 2012
  • Airlift

    This amazing story needs a second movie, perhaps titled The Real Airlift, which is not in thrall to a single and singular man but acknowledges the hundreds who enabled lakhs of Indians to return home safe. Airlift soars on its own merits, but it is ultimately a flight of fantasy.

    Jan 2016
  • Akira

    The poorly directed action scenes number a handful, with most of the 139-minute running time devoted to contrivances and convolutions that do not do justice to an interesting premise.

    Sep 2016
  • Alif

    The theatrical acting and inept handling of scenes stretches on for 120 minutes, and the larger issues that the movie tries to tackle fall by the wayside.

    Feb 2017
  • Anjaana Anjaani

    ...treats suicide and people who want to kill themselves as one big joke. The movie could have been a black comedy, but the writing simply isn’t sharp enough. There is no character development worth its name.

    Oct 2010
  • Ankhon Dekhi

    Still, as city films and portraits of ordinary people taking a step towards an extraordinary light go, Aankhon Dekhi is an enjoyable confection...
