  • Aiyaary

    ...touted as the espionage explosion aimed to expose the corruption in the Army, sadly ends up exposing the erstwhile prolific Neeraj Pandey’s shortcomings as a filmmaker in this thriller that is nothing but a ticking time bomb that has forgotten its ‘mission’ to explode and make the expected roar. Kya bore.

    Feb 2018
  • Pad Man

    ...Balki has made a feel-good movie from this relevant and sensitive subject, which possesses strong women angles.

    Feb 2018
  • Kuldip Patwal

    ...the makers had a vision like any creative soul but it’s the execution and what we see finally on the screen that matters and here in Kuldip Patwal: I Didn’t Do It! , the execution unfortunately murders the plot by stabbing it to death.

    Feb 2018
  • Padmaavat

    ...an intoxicatingly beautiful & lavishly mounted magnum opus, this extraordinary courage of love, valour, sacrifice and honour is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s most ambitious film till date powered by outstanding performance by Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.

  • Nirdosh

    A murder mystery should toy with the victims, suspects and other characters and not with the audience which unfortunately happens in this case.

    Jan 2018
  • Vodka Diaries

    The required jolt during the final revelation is missing and its more of a psychological drama which perhaps has tried to do something more than it actually is.

    Jan 2018
  • 1921

    There is a degree of eerie feelings during the first half for the diehard bollywood horror buffs but shockingly, the second half is cursed.

    Jan 2018
  • Kaalakaandi

    If you love Saif Ali Khan than anything else and have the patience to experience the occasional fun in the entire lunacy that runs for one hour and fifty two minutes then go ahead.

    Jan 2018
  • Mukkabaaz

    ...is an unusual sports flick that qualifies to be a gender bender in spite its attempt to get hooked to the wider audience, thanks to the constant jabs and punches to the caste system, religious intolerance and corruption.

    Jan 2018
  • Monsoon Shootout

    ...is a bafflingly juggled version of Run Lola Run with the raw, edgy and elements of ultra violence inspired from the videshi Taratino to our desi flag bearer of radical cinema Kashyap, Bhardwaj packed in gritty, hip and gory envelope which clearly exposes the director Amit Kumar’s over ambition to be a cool, arty, dark de noir worshipper.

  • Viraam

    Lifeless, contrived and sleep-inducing there is almost nothing in this movie that can be singled out as an achievement.

    Dec 2017
  • Kadvi Hawa

    ...is a piece of art that makes you admire Sanjay Mishra as an actor a little more than you already do, re - establish the faith in Nila Madhab Panda as a filmmaker with sense and sensibility

    Nov 2017
  • Ajji

    ...is a sharp attack on the mainstream rape and revenge saga that chops the melodramatic routines and presents a gory and bloody viewpoint of its own. It may be devastating, disturbing but in no way a passerby in the annals of strong indie cinema.

    Nov 2017
  • Aksar 2

    Anant Mahadevan’s narration is plain routine; lack of moments, thrill, snaky turns makes Aksar 2 a tedious watch.

    Nov 2017
  • Tumhari Sulu

    ...is a feel good cinema that should not be missed, the one that makes you fall in love with someone you love, your family and of course Vidya Balan.

    Nov 2017
  • Ittefaq

    ...could have marked the entry of Abhay Chopra as a graceful, mysterious, demanding story teller that leaves a baffling effect on the audience, the helmer shows traces of his potential by creating and sustaining the mood of the genre but his calibre as a story teller is defeated by the plot.

    Nov 2017
  • Ribbon

    ...is a bitter sweet and rare adage on complexities in relationship and unprepared parenting that can be a story of any doting young working parent in any metropolitan city.

    Nov 2017
  • Ranchi Diaries

    A pointless drubbing of affairs based on tepid motivations derived from the cocktails of quirky rural exotica from the Hindi heartland of U.P. and Bihar served by Bhardwaj, Jha and Kashyap, Ranchi Diaries is a nonstop ho hum that goes nowhere.

    Oct 2017
  • Chef

    ...fails to give the 'burps' of satisfaction expected from a good enjoyable meal. The Indian thali served in Chef definitely has couple of delicious dishes to relish but the overall experience leaves us hungry for more.

    Oct 2017
  • Tu Hai Mera Sunday

    ...is a moment of charming and intimating relish of life that demands a 'space' from those who care for cinema that celebrates life and the possibility in the positivity it offers.

    Oct 2017
  • Judwaa 2

    The humour is scattered in bits and pieces. Yes such genre requires logic to be left outside the theatre but still the writing lacks originality and when we see those outdated jokes circulated on social media get repeated as a gag in the film, it turns out to be a pot off.

    Sep 2017
  • Bhoomi

    Call it eagerness or the pressure to make a befitting statement on womanhood, the director Omung along with his writer Raaj Shaandilyaa find themselves jumbled in the examples set by Pink, Mom and the deja vu becomes unavoidable.

    Sep 2017
  • The Final Exit

    ...is a mind twister for the common audience and it requires an extra understanding of the other aspect of evil, the Indian philosophy of life, death, paap, punya etc is not for the regulars.
