  • Bharat

    Somewhere along the way, the focus of the film shifts from India to Bharat the character and that's its chief flaw. You leave the theatre feeling underwhelmed...

  • Nakkash

    Better attention to detail and better writing would have turned Nakkash into a powerful vehicle propagating Hindu-Muslim unity -- something that’s much needed in these troubled times. Instead, you’re left with a sense of what could have been as you come out of the theatre...

  • India‘s Most Wanted

    You walk out of the film with a swelling sense of pride for the country and its brave men. But you can’t help wish the film was intelligently crafted rather than just banking on nationalist fervour.

  • De De Pyaar De

    The writing of the film packs a few punches but they all come in spurts. A quicker pace and a pithy script could have elevated debutant director Akiv Ali’s film a notch higher.

  • Setters

    The writing goes from being focussed to being all over the place. In effect, the balance of the film isn’t right. It’s too intense in some areas and playful in others.

  • Blank

    ...given its premise, the film had the potential to be an edge-of-the-seat thriller, if only the writing and execution could have been better.

  • The Tashkent Files

    Shastri's life is a much more interesting subject than his death. We wish someone makes a biopic on that, instead of speculating on his death. It should be stated that the film looks biased against a certain political party. Given the fact that elections are at hand, the film ideally should have been released post the voting...

  • Junglee

    ...is an action-packed adventure which also tells us that we share this planet with lots of different species, who have an equal right to it...

  • Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

    ...the film’s gags don’t travel well outside the context. It’s one of those -- ‘you’ve to be there’ -- kind of films. But within those two hours, you’ll surely laugh your head off.

  • Milan Talkies

    ...watching Milan Talkies is like watching a flawed but fantastic idea taking shape and dissolving upon itself. You leave the theatre wondering what could have been if Tigmanshu had a smooth sailing throughout...

  • Hamid

    At a time when intolerance is at an all time high, we need more such efforts to remind us of the common humanity that binds us. Kudos to director Aijaz Khan for his all heart endeavour.

  • Badla

    ...is a true-blue mystery thriller alright. Bollywood directors don't much attempt the genre and it's high time they did so...

  • Sonchiriya

    ...offers a potent blend of dacoit drama, karmic lesson and caste politics with some realistic action thrown in for good measure. The performances alone are worth the price of the ticket.

  • Total Dhamaal

    The film delivers its punches by stringing together one ridiculous situation after another. As long as you enjoy that brand of comedy and are looking for a film to unwind, then Total Dhamaal is just the fare for you...

  • Amavas

    We learn from Amavas that a Gothic mansion, jump cuts galore and red herrings aplenty thrown into the mix sadly don’t translate into a horror film.

  • Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga

    ...full marks to debutante director Shelly Chopra Dhar for making a heartfelt film about a topic that needs to be brought out in the open. Let’s hope the film gets people talking about it, especially in our small towns and villages, where closed mindsets still prevail.

  • Thackeray

    ...Thackeray’s legacy when it comes to Mumbai and Maharashtra politics can’t be denied. He became a god for millions and this biopic comes close to introducing us to his persona. That said, he was more than the sum of images that the present film invokes and maybe we won’t ever get the true picture...
