  • Chatur Singh Two Star

    This is a film that proffers madness without the slightest semblance of method. It's just as well that there are two stars in its title. It doesn't deserve any.

    Aug 2011
  • Humshakals

    Even by the pitiable cinematic standards that the director has so defiantly set for himself, Humshakals is the very pits. It scrapes the bottom of a barrel that seems to have no bottom at all.

    Jun 2014
  • Action Jackson

    The film proffers the worst of everything – obnoxious characters, mindless situations, juvenile action sequences, raucous music, bizarre dance routines and pathetically cheap gags – with nary a sign of any redeeming feature that could lessen the blow.

    Dec 2014
  • Tera Intezaar

    You might ask: why does this film deserve even half a star? Well, it is for whoever it is who dared to believe that Tera Intezaar could be passed off as cinema. Takes loads of guts or a whole lot of stupidity!

  • Pagalpanti

    ...does deliver something akin to the madhouse that it promises but its loony-bin approach to hilarity is too dated to be effective.

  • Kismet Love Paisa Dilli

    The makers of KLPD might as well, as a statutory warning, have added another letter to the title to denote ASSAULT. Yes, this wannabe comic thriller is an all-out assault on the senses.

    Oct 2012
  • Yaariyan

    ...talks about a whole lot of other things – friendship, trust, patriotism, race attacks and tolerance – but makes no sense at all.

    Jan 2014
  • Genius

    ...no amount of flag-waving and chest-thumping can deflect from the fact that Genius is an unspeakably shoddy film.

    Aug 2018
  • Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas

    ...lacks the freshness that one would expect from a film with a new romantic pair. The reason is obvious: the plot is as old, but not as sturdy, as the hills.

    Sep 2019
  • Wedding Pullav

    Bland and unenticing, Wedding Pullav is a concoction that is too stale and sloppy to tingle even the least evolved of cinematic taste buds.

    Oct 2015
  • O Teri

    The film, all 107 minutes of it, is a full frontal assault that gives the audience no options at all. The only emotion it arouses is disgust.

    Mar 2014
  • Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum

    The film is ostensibly targeted at the teen segment and it might even find some takers there. But it barely passes muster as a sex comedy. It’s crude, crass and completely clueless.

    Jul 2012
  • Bombairiya

    ...is a tangled mess, neither funny nor engaging. It's a comedy of errors all right - more errors than comedy. Be warned, don't even think of sitting through it. Torture isn't funny.

    Jan 2019
  • Ek Paheli Leela

    The painfully pointless Ek Paheli Leela is a full-blown cinematic conundrum whose depth is inversely proportional to the geneorus decolletage that is on show.

    Apr 2015
  • Chitkabrey

    Chitkabrey, which redefines cock-and-bull with gay abandon, is quite a test. Go for it only if you are a sucker for tedium.

    Aug 2011
  • Manikarnika

    ...is agonizingly soulless. Platitudes piled upon synthetic platitudes do not add up to great cinema, especially when none of the film's war cries delivers any bang for its buck.

    Jan 2019
  • Chalk N Duster

    For intention, Chalk N Duster might get full marks, but the execution is so hopelessly ham-fisted that the film can only be described as an absolute botch-up.
