    ...it shows what art is here for; to pose tough questions and to show a mirror to society. So, if you need a reality check and want to know just what millions of Kashmiris go through each day, go and watch this wonderful little film in theatres.

  • Hum Chaar

    Given that the film has released during the valentine’s week, it may pique interests of young, college-going students. However, they should realise that their own lives, however dull, will seem more interesting and entertaining when compared with these characters.

  • Amavas

    While the effects are slick and the ghosts match up to international standards, they cannot save this film from turning into a painful two-hour-long watch.

  • Jalebi

    What could have been an interesting and quirky train ride turns into a sappy, emotional tear-filled journey that seems like it will go on forever.

  • Mitron

    With an extremely guessable plot and a not enough laughs to match, Mitron is a film you would recommend to those friends you want to get back at!

  • Bioscopewala

    Debutant filmmaker Deb Medhekar has quite skilfully adapted Tagore’s classic story for the screen. He has weaved an emotionally rich spectacle in the form of Bioscopewala about the bond between fathers and daughters.

  • Hope Aur Hum

    The film is more interesting in parts, while the whole feels a bit disjointed. A tighter script could have helped, but for now the little gags in the film work just fine.

  • Nanu Ki Jaanu

    ...when it turns into a whodunit in the second half and a new emotional angle is introduced, it falls completely flat. Neither the performances nor an ever changing storyline, where newer characters are introduced, help pick it up.

  • My Birthday Song

    ...a complex story such as this one needs an experienced filmmaker. Also, the fact that the story is layered and there are multiple timelines running through the film, the treatment could have been slicker.

  • 1921

    The problem with '1921' is, that Vikram Bhatt has added too much of a story to it. While the ghosts he has created do manage to scare you, they pop-up like such overzealousness and dedication so often, that after the interval, you are almost numb to their presence.

  • Viraam

    With insipid performances, a very slow pace and a plot that you can smell miles away, Viraam is a film that could have been better if it avoided the cliched treatment that is often given to Hindi films.
