  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Manmarziyaan

    So one thought stays constant while watching this film — the premise is all wrong, yet the emotions are so right. Loveless marriages are as much a way of life as lust-filled encounters.

    Sep 2018
  • Stree

    ...the film is enjoyable because of the superlative acting from Rajkummar, Pankaj, Aparshakti and Abhishek all of who blend seamlessly into the screenplay credited to Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK.

  • Vishwaroop II

    There's no questioning that he is one of the most powerful screen performers we have today but he simply isn't cut out at this age for a film so nauseatingly high on action. When the lead actor himself looks a misfit in the film, you know it's not going to be a smooth-ride.

  • Fanney Khan

    ...has the right plot premise. But the whole treatment is so convoluted, it makes you want to scream for help because it appears like a bunch of amateurs were behind the scenes.

  • Karwaan

    Actually, the thing with Karwaan is, it doesn't know what it wants to be. Akarsh is confused between making a light, breezy comedy and a dark, soul-searching film; so it oscillates between a fun-ride and a dark-drag, leaving you with no real emotion.
