  • 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.

  • CRD

    ...is a film that will make you laugh and even shock you more than a few times, but it will never bore you. Go for it if you like your movies dark and twisted with a heavy dose of humour.

  • The Final Exit

    While the philosophical turn the film takes is interesting, it's a tad too metaphysical. A different kind of horror, go for this one if you're interested in a good dose of philosophy with your horror.

  • Shab

    We need filmmakers like him to have conversations about subjects like same-sex relationships, single mothers, but he needs to have his objective clear.

  • G Kutta Se

    The film does have the potential to overwhelm you, given its heavy subject matter. Still, the filmmaker keeps you engrossed by using humour, which is dark and bleak just like the setting of the film.

  • Love U Family

    The filmmakers have spent money on sets, which is visible. But we wish they had also spent some on the film's writing. The continuity is patchy and the songs, including an English number, are cheesy and awkward.

  • Mantra

    In a bid to cover all bases, the film does fall short in reaching a clear conclusion and the execution falls short in places. Still, the story and performances make sure you are involved till the very end.
