  • Jalebi

    Even in your most generous mood, you won’t find Jalebi better than the most average episode of a saas-bahu soap. My advice — try not to taste this stale, overdone offering.

  • Gold

    Actors try to make up for a little slack in pace, but its capacity to moist your eyes at will is Gold’s real strength. Akshay is in top form and this is your must watch Independence Day film.​

  • Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3

    The complexity of the relationship between Jimmy and Mahie is not a point of concern for the writers. They have assumed that the audience already knows it after the past films. That leaves the two actors grasping for straws. Actually, whatever worked in the previous films is absent here and add-ons are totally out of sync.

  • Soorma

    ...doesn’t attempt to probe beyond the obvious, even if you don’t know the real story. With 131-minute duration, Soorma presents Sandeep as the ultimate boy scout. A tinge of reality wouldn’t have hurt.

  • Sanju

    As director, Hirani, faced an uphill task in bringing back all those memories in their truest form in Sanju. Hirani does it the way Hirani can, by bringing in the humour and heart in almost every sequence, even the serious ones.

  • Race 3

    Salman Khan and company never hint that they’re making a cerebral film, or a film that would offer you anything beyond unabashed entertainment in true Bollywood style. There is an army of actors who swirl, twirl and hurl bullets and dialogues at will. The problem is when the thrilling bits end up comic, unintentionally so.

  • Parmanu

    John Abraham’s deadpan expressions are a hindrance but he somehow manages to hold his ground. Other actors follow his footsteps. It’s the writing that saves the day for Abraham and Parmanu.

  • Khajoor Pe Atke

    Despite a promising theme, Khajoor Pe Atke is somewhere lost in translation. Thanks to Manoj and Seema Pahwa’s terrific comic timing, the audience bears to sit through this 120-minute botched up relationship drama.

    May 2018
  • Raazi

    ...is a sensibly written and finely performed film that takes a close look at the ordinary lives of extraordinary people. Not to miss.

    May 2018
  • Beyond The Clouds

    Despite excellent symbols and good performances in patches, Beyond The Clouds remains something we have seen and had expected. The uniqueness of the film hardly crosses the crowded bylanes. Majid Majidi’s foreign eyes see what all of them see.

  • Hate Story IV

    ...is all about actors thinking real loud in their heads and then cat-walking in slow motion towards the camera. And when they’re not doing it, they are either spiking drinks or ogling creepily at women.

  • Padmaavat

    ...is sparkling, extravagant, dazzling, magnificent and wonderful. It’s a feast for the eyes. It leaves you craving for something more meaningful than a mere re-telling of Jayasi’s poem.

  • Mukkabaaz

    ...is the best film in last one year or so, and this year couldn’t start on a better note. Let’s cherish Vineet Singh and his thickheaded brawler with open heart.

  • Julie 2

    In between bizarre and shocking, Raai Laxmi keeps gyrating in body-hugging suits and shiny bikinis. She also dances on a song titled ‘Malasina (or Mala Sinha!) Dikhayegi Filmy Dance’. She oohs and aahs, even unhooks her bra twice or thrice, to make it work, but all in vain.

  • Ajji

    The mood is right, the tone is right, the pace is right. The film doesn’t delve in the grey zone. There are two sides and you need to pick one.
