  • Pihu

    As the minutes tick Kapri's urban horror show becomes familiar. When the focus turns to unseen adult voices, the script's weaknesses are apparent.

  • Thugs Of Hindostan

    By the end of Thugs of Hindostan audiences will feel they have been looted of their time and denied the joy of watching two talented stars, Bachchan and Khan, come together for the first time.

    Nov 2018
  • Pataakha

    Bhardwaj though doesn't delve too deep into making them agents of change, more inclined to return to the shenanigans that provides the laughs. Pataakha further succumbs to taking a clichéd route to create drama and conflict, one more befitting in soap operas.

    Sep 2018
  • Manto

    In a time when the past is being manufactured to present an alternate reality, perhaps revisiting Manto's unflinching prose is what we direly need. That's the biggest takeaway from Das's biopic.

  • Love Sonia

    ...inconsistencies can't take away from Mrunal Thakur's work who essays the character with conviction, capturing its naiveté, guilt and fractured spirit adeptly. If you love Sonia by the end of it, it's because of her.

    Sep 2018
  • Stree

    After regaling audiences with many ideas it's a bit of a letdown to see a film venture on a all-too familiar terrain. Stree tries to give its female ghost an identity that goes beyond revenge, yet by the end she also feels nothing beyond a scream queen.

    Aug 2018
  • Gold

    ...Gold's increasing tendency to take a simplistic and contrived approach to history to create thrill doesn't work.

    Aug 2018
  • Satyameva Jayate

    With the clock ticking past the two hour mark, all the spiel on farz, izzat, imaandari is too familiar. You are left with a realisation: truth hurts but Satyamev Jayate hurts more.

    Aug 2018
  • Vishwaroop II

    Audiences would wish that like her character they too could forget majority of Vishwaroop 2 which is several notches low on entertainment than its average predecessor.

    Aug 2018
  • Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3

    The Saheb Biwi aur Gangster movies have thrived on the combination of sex, power, lies and backstabbing but this time around Dhulia is low on ideas, humour and most importantly a compelling narrative.

    Jul 2018
  • Hope Aur Hum

    ...barring a few amusing moments where the characters come alive, Bandyopadhyay struggles to maintain the feel-good temperament or make his characters endearing. Hope aur Hum ultimately lacks purpose.

    May 2018
  • Raazi

    She (Alia Bhatt) is present in almost every scene post her character's introduction and she shines throughout even when the film stutters near the end.

    May 2018
  • Omerta

    ...inspires neither fear nor disdain. It leaves you empty and wondering as to what drew Mehta to this guy in the first place.

    May 2018
  • Daas Dev

    Impoverished, rebellious farmers, greedy businessmen and corrupt and manipulative politicians and their goons are some of the many issues that Mishra skims through with little thought.

    Apr 2018
  • Beyond The Clouds

    ...is well-meaning in its message of compassion in a harsh world but it is one thing to tug at the heartstrings and another to become a sappy Bollywood drama while doing so.

    Apr 2018
  • Raid

    Even as Raid raises pertinent questions on lionising immoral heroes and ignoring the ones who actually do the right thing, it lacks vision and wastes the opportunity to dive deep into this discrepancy.

    Mar 2018
  • Aiyaary

    Pandey has a know-it-all approach to the world of armed forces only he is not able to bring it alive for cinema. Also missing is the humour that he is able to effortlessly intersperse in between moments of high drama.

    Feb 2018
  • Kadvi Hawa

    Despite a running time of 95 minutes, Kadvi Hawa still feels a laboured watch. Nitin Dixit's screenplay trudges along, not digging deep into what has created the harsh landscape that has made the farmer woes from bad to worse.

    Nov 2017
  • Chef

    ...is that rare Hindi film that celebrates India's diversity of cuisine and its unfailing ability to whet our appetite and for that alone it's worth a watch.
