  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Fukrey Returns

    ...is a sequel that wants to be bigger, better and funnier than the original. In all fairness, it does manage to fulfil its ambitions on two accounts. It is bigger, it is funnier but it's certainly not better.

  • Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana

    ...talks about the dowry system, the inequality towards women in civil services and general working opportunities etc, it really feels like a mature and relevant story. But the treatment is so lackluster that it relegates the movie to Indian soap opera status. It’s a definite letdown.

  • Qarib Qarib Singlle

    There are no ‘jeene marne ki qasamein’ no drama, just a casual, simple and very refreshing romance that says a lot without much effort. With solid writing and great performances...

  • Ittefaq

    ...is a solid modern whodunit. It looks as slick as any Hollywood production. Even with its mistakes, the crime mystery manages to impress with its logical and clinical writing.

  • Tu Hai Mera Sunday

    It has novel ideas, but Tu Hai Mera Sunday’s intentions deserved a better execution. Director Milind Dhaimade isn’t able to get the required finesse in telling this tale.
