  • Baaghi 3

    Things over here are innocently juvenile in the name of an action packed thriller suited for those who still find pleasure in those chor police, ram leela kind of plays/games we play when we are in our primary schools.

  • Thappad

    Anubhav Sinha crafts an impeccable piece of art that creates a flow of symbolism that is so strong and so potent, the metaphoric richness that conveys the yearning of women is undeniably an unforgettable, unmissable, triumph of humanity & womanhood anchored by Tapsee Pannu’s top notch act.

  • Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

  • Bhoot – Part One

    ...is a decent sonically atmospheric scare fest having Vicky Kaushal delivering an ‘arresting’ act. It offers something different from the routine Bollywood scares.

  • Love Aaj Kal

    I kept waiting for the plot to kick in and knock my heart and warm my soul. It never happened. In fact the movie had the body but lacked the soul.

  • Gul Makai

    How can such an incredibly inspiring story of education activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai could turn into an unwanted and unaccepted showcase of the Pakistani Army’s struggle in tackling Taliban.

  • Street Dancer 3D

    ...has all the razzle-dazzle, the razzmatazz required in a dynamic dance sequence on stage, it has all the right moves as far as the dances are concerned. But precious little to hold attention once the music stops.

  • Sab Kushal Mangal

    Director Karan Viswanath Kashyap and actor co writer Brijendra Kala, fail to shape this potential quirky funny delight into an absorbing event on screen as they fall short of ideas/gags after a while.

    The awesome power of Jammwal as an action hero and the brilliance of Devaiah as an actor deserve something much better and refined.

  • Satellite Shankar

    ...is a feel-good and syrupy adaptation of the 1959 Russian classic Ballad of a Soldier, having less brain and more heart but the important thing is, it brings an Indian to smile and feel proud for India and the Indian army.
