  • Kedarnath

    Director Abhishek Kapoor’s attempt to make a film set against the backdrop of a natural calamity of this proportion is ambitious and sincere. The setting is what makes a difference, because the simple and predictable love story doesn’t really rose above the water level.

  • Thugs Of Hindostan

    Apart from the stray funny moments and consistently good visuals (thanks to decent CGI efforts), 'TOH' doesn’t really have the punch or the thrill that is required to pull off a film of this scale.

  • Badhaai Ho

    Even though the story has a limited scope, the detailed writing, the finesse of Sharma’s direction and some unforgettable performances, make this film an absolute winner.

  • Tumbbad

    ...is a moody and atmospheric film. Some viewers may find the film a little too deep and disturbing, but fans of Hollywood horror films will be reminded of memorable movies in the genre like Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) and Eraserhead (1977). This one is genuinely scary.

  • Batti Gul Meter Chalu

    The movie holds up a strong and scathing mirror to corruption and everything that is wrong with corporations and their governance. It is a story that needs to be told, undoubtedly, but the runtime just robs the movie of its impact.

  • Stree

    ...does fairly well with the comedy, but even with several laugh-out-loud moments, the film feels a little too long. Towards the end, the movie drops the horror comedy treatment and becomes a little too serious about the conventional stabbing-the-ghost-in-the-heart kind of ideas that often play out in horror flicks.

  • Dhadak

    While Parshya and Archi’s love story in Sairat was made with great honesty, realism and depth, giving us a perspective of the deep rooted prejudices in our society, Dhadak touches upon them too, but it merely skims the surface.

  • Race 3

    But for all its big moments, 'Race 3' just does not work up the feeling of suspense and intrigue that made the previous masala movies from the franchise a guilty pleasure.

    Jun 2018
  • Parmanu

    What ‘Parmanu’ lacks in detail and authenticity, it makes up with emotions and a sense of national pride. The narrative isn’t explosive but it does have the dramatic moments to keep the viewer engaged.

  • Baaghi 2

    With better editing and a taut screenplay this one would have packed a stronger punch. Nonetheless, for fans of the action genre, Baaghi 2 can be a one-time watch.

  • Kuldip Patwal

    This film had a lot of potential. It had the spunk that we've seen before in Subhash Kapoor's Jolly LLB movies. But all of that promise is laid to waste with uninspiring execution.

  • Mukkabaaz

    ...is not your average sports film or love story. This one’s a funny, intense, dramatic and thrilling ride. It makes you laugh, cry and nervous in equal measure. It’s a great way to start the year.
