  • Guddu Rangeela

    ...could've been so much better had Subhash Kapoor stuck to his guns and made a satire that actually tried to do something about the appalling backwardness of our hinterlands.

  • Dil Dhadakne Do

    ...might be a flawed family drama, but the flawed family at its center is so relatable and the issues that it confronts are so relevant, that you're willing to forgive Zoya Akhtar for her many missteps in the last half hour

  • Mr. X

    ...it's high time that Vikram Bhatt stopped making films, and more importantly, that Emraan Hashmi stopped acting in them out of a sense of debt.

  • Hunterrr

    With forgettable performances, an overstretched narrative and sex jokes that rarely hit the mark, Hunterrr is a film you shouldn't be falling prey to this weekend.

  • NH10

    ...a dark and wild ride into the outskirts of our nation with plenty of thrills and gory action. Not meant for the fainthearted and tailor-made for cinema aficionados...

  • Dum Laga Ke Haisha

    ...is an anomaly of a film that chooses to tell an intimate story in the most grounded manner, all the while shaming us into accepting what a misogynistic and materialistic world we live in.

  • Badlapur

    ...is an intense and captivating cinematic experience for those bored of the typical Bollywood shtick and looking for something refreshingly different.

  • Roy

    Aided by respectable central performances, a catchy soundtrack, eloquent visuals and a very impressive debut as writer and director for Vikramjit Singh, Roy is a great date-night option for the Valentine's Day weekend.

    ...it has more than its fare share of flaws, especially in the latter half of the film. But despite all of that, it's hard to let go of the riveting first half and the idea that the film so beautifully holds at its center.

  • Shamitabh

    ...is too melodramatic and outlandish for its own good. It boats of some great acting and a refreshing concept, but is let down by Balki's crummy writing and ham-handed direction.

    The film has a story line that crumbles faster than shortbread cookies, and makes less sense than if you were actually watching the film with its audio muted.

  • Tevar

    ...this week's exercise in bone-crunching and item numbers, is one of those latter films, the kind that would've been better off without aiming for crowd-pleasing tactics.

  • Haider

    Dark, bleak, morbid and absurd, it is a Shakespearean tragedy and a Vishal Bhardwaj film through and through; and a fantastic one at that.
