  • Udta Punjab

    Not only do I recommend Udta Punjab as mandatory viewing, I also urge that the film be made tax-free. Very few films touch a cord such that they can actually make a difference.

    Jun 2016
  • Sarbjit

    This may not be very fulfilling as a film, but it should be watched for the extraordinary story full of unbelievable love and unbelievable cruelty.

    May 2016
  • Azhar

    There is an attempt to showcase the grey shades of the central character, but the film majorly cops-out in the end.

    May 2016
  • Traffic

    The execution is not sharp and technically impressive. The acting is superb by the veterans, but shaky by the younger crowd. Still, the film is worth a watch for the extraordinary story.

    May 2016
  • Love Games

    ...why does an erotic thriller have to be such a mess with over-the-top characters, implausible developments, sketchy execution and a finale that is as outrageous as it is predictable.

    Apr 2016
  • Rocky Handsome

    But a film can work only if the viewer is emotionally invested in the character and their journey. That’s the reason Rocky Handsome doesn’t work neither as an emotional drama nor an action flick.

    Mar 2016
  • Kapoor & Sons

    The nuances in the story are reflected brilliantly in all aspects of the film from the performances to the technical aspects like production design, music, editing and photography.

    Mar 2016
  • Aligarh

    Watch the film to experience a story that is as searing as it is sensitive. Most crucially, the film ensures that the absurdity of a law criminalizing homosexuality hits home harder than ever.

    Feb 2016
  • Fitoor

    If you love Great Expectations, keep no expectations from this one. Else, be prepared to entranced by the visual splendor of the movie, and be disappointed by the lack of emotional connect.

    Feb 2016
  • Airlift

    Director Raja Krishna Menon tells this remarkable tale astutely, keeping us on the edge of our seats.

    Jan 2016
  • Chalk N Duster

    Director Jayant Gilatar makes a pertinent film with some crackerjack performances by the lead cast. The story and its message is a winner, but the film is technically inept, complete with the limitations of dubbed sound and abrupt cuts.

    Jan 2016
  • Chauranga

    This is an encouraging debut by director writer-director Bikas Ranjan Mishra, who doesn’t shy away from portraying India’s worst side. And then, he adds hope.

    Jan 2016
  • Wazir

    In keeping with the spirit of the film, one could say this could’ve been a winning game, but let down by a few faulty moves. Well-played, still, for the Amitabh-Farhan pairing.

    Jan 2016
  • Dilwale

    Rohit Shetty has made far more entertaining films in the past. But they did not have Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. This pair is something special. Watch the film for them!

    Dec 2015
  • Tamasha

    Despite the flaws, the film is full of mad charm and is all heart. Tamasha is an incredible spectacle of a movie, to be experienced, not merely viewed.

    Nov 2015
  • Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

    The film has its faults, but with Salman Khan's dual force (yes, he plays a double role), a lilting romance, and the ODing on traditional values – this one's sure to hit the right spots with the family junta.

    Nov 2015
  • Titli

    As a storyteller, Behl's biggest triumph is that he makes us care for each of his characters without judgment.

    Oct 2015
  • Main Aur Charles

    ...the makers have taken truly explosive material and tamed it down, choosing to glamourize the villain to a nauseating level. The film had so much more potential!
