  • Kalank

    Three words to sum it up would be – it’s beautifully chaotic. Anyway, some movies are best seen and less analysed.

  • Romeo Akbar Walter

    As the espionage thriller’s lead actor, John, who plays a cucumber-cool spy, stays within character. But he is let down by mediocre writing and amateur direction. As a result, the pace is sluggish.

  • Badla

    ...the movie feels too verbose and claustrophobic because a major portion is set inside just one room. But, if you take a deep breath and let that feeling pass, you may just find yourself "digging deep" into the proceedings.

  • Sonchiriya

    The writing by Chaubey and Sharma has as much bite as the bullets sprayed here. The attempts to tear into the soul of the dacoits and show them as real people with fears, faith and fervour, comes across effectively.

  • Total Dhamaal

    ...the pace of the first half is terrific. Before the innumerable characters are introduced and the first stone of the plot is laid, it is the intermission. The second half is tiresome.

  • Thackeray

    Don’t miss Thackeray. It’s like a gym session that gives you a high. You can actually feel the adrenaline pumping, many a time during the film.

  • Manikarnika

    Even today, an important chapter in Indian history tomes is dedicated to the Queen of Jhansi. Watch her story unfold in this lavishly-mounted screen spectacle.

  • Uri

    Watch it for Vicky’s honest performance and to get a closer look at what happened on the night of the surgical strike.

    Jan 2019
  • Simmba

    ...is tried and tested 80s Bollywood formula.  But what the hell?  If redux songs can be a super hit, retelling formula, 1000-times-over can also be super fun.

  • Zero

    Zero gets marks for Shah Rukh's experiment into a space less traveled.  If you're curious, go ahead, amuse yourelf.

  • 2.0

    ...Shankar’s story is pedestrian, plebeian and even plain puerile. But the visuals and sounds are compelling enough to keep you mesmerised at least for a bit.

  • Thugs Of Hindostan

    ...it is a pity no one thought of writing a more novel story, especially when they had two superstars on board their ship. It is a pity that after spending so much  on VFX, gimmickry and virgin locales of Malta, no one thought it appropriate to fit the whole thing in with more emotion and entertainment.

  • Jalebi

    The treatment is like a Sridevi-Jeetendra-Jaya Prada South remake from the ’80s. And you don’t empathise with the leads because neither their passion nor pain translates.

  • LoveYatri

    There was a lot more that could have been managed here. But debutant director Abhiraj K Minawala has played so safe that you almost feel this is a kiddie outing rather than a movie made for young adults.

  • Pataakha

    You laugh at the parallels drawn between the two sisters and India’s love-hate relationship with Pakistan. All the profundity about not being able to choose your relatives and neighbours works. But even that metaphor doesn’t allow you to ‘enjoy’ the violent nature of this destructive relationship.

  • Manto

    ...while it evokes strong emotions for the genius’ idiosyncrasies, it fails to keep the audience in its grip throughout. There’s a mundane element that keeps popping up from time to time.

  • Batti Gul Meter Chalu

    Watch BGMC because it throws light on the issue of electricity, which is a fundamental human right. If we sit like frogs in a well, we may never learn what ails the real India. Jaago guys, jaago.
