  • 7 Khoon Maaf

    ...not a bad film by any measure. Though the standards Vishal has set for himself with his prior track record are so high that it comes across as almost offensive in its mediocrity.

  • Patiala House

    ...scores that cheeky single primarily because one approaches it with zilch expectations, given the recent outings of its helmsman and leading star. But cheeky singles are just that…cheeky singles, and it takes more than that to win a match...

  • Dhobi Ghat

    Kiran Rao does enough in Dhobi Ghat to warrant an expectation fueled second look. Though had she shown a little more courage by going deeper into the cross-cultural undercurrents, which she seems fairly capable of, she could have come up with a winner instead of a middling effort.

  • No One Killed Jessica

    The film could have made some telling comments on the misuse of power by the high and mighty, but instead, it takes some creative liberties in places where it could have easily avoided it.

  • Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey

    ...while it may satiate the yearnings of a grossly ill-exposed audience, purely on the strength of telling a lesser known story and the impeccable production values, it is by far the most dishonest film to have come from Gowariker.

  • Guzaarish

    Its a visual treat, a technical feat in scale and an emotional roller-coaster. The best news is that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is well on his way to finding the right balance between these three aspects of a film.

  • Lafangey Parindey

    ...Pradeep Sarkar is stuck in a time warp. He handles the film the way you'd expect a trade union leader to handle the responsibilities of the CEO of a multinational. In other words, he’s completely out of place and depth.

    The film lays a huge stress on its style quotient, which is quite pertinent to the subject. However, thinking that the high style can substitute for substantial writing is a huge folly.

  • Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai

    Once Upon… seeks to entertain – it does so resoundingly well; it seeks to establish parallels with real life characters and events as well as to create a period ambience of the 70’s – this part is executed with mixed success. Though when it comes to its third ambition – that of texturing it with a moral debate – what comes across is a half-hearted attempt and failure.

  • Tere Bin Laden

    ...is a victory of sorts. It represents the triumph of content over gloss, of performance over locations and of wit over pretentions. It makes you laugh and at the same time, makes you think about a few things, big and small.

  • Red Alert

    Though it has its share of flaws and is nowhere in the league of its predecessors named earlier, it does manage to strike quite a few chords.

  • Raavan

    ...is highly flawed but packs in quite a few punches that justify the name helming it. Sadly, the meatier of these punches from an overall cinematic appeal standpoint, are too little and too late by the time they come in.
