  • Baaghi 2

    It's not a well-structured film, and the story has many loopholes; the performances are over-the-top and the plot points convenient. However, some credit must be given to Baaghi 2 for staying true to its genre. If you're a fan of high-action dramas, you may just (gasp!) enjoy this film.

  • Hichki

    The vibe of the film is inconsistent, and this glaring 'hichki' can be felt throughout the film. In parts, it is funny and in parts it gets very dramatic.

  • Dil Juunglee

    ...the huge potential of two talented actors was completely wasted because the filmmakers decided to stick to the same old formulaic and cheesy way of making a typical Bollywood ‘love’ story.

  • Welcome to New York

    The intent behind Welcome to New York leaves many questions – why is the main one. Why 3D, why make this movie, why give Karan Johar a double role, why not use more cameos? Why watch this indulgent snoozefest? That last question is the only one with a clear answer.

  • Pad Man

    ...packs in a lot of meat within 2.5 hours but most of it is the concentrated second half whereas the first one stands diluted. Balki's direction elevates the film almost as much as Kumar's charged portrayal.

  • Padmaavat

    How do you support a film that glorifies the very beliefs you don't stand for? Do you accept it as a portrayal of the times in which the film is based, or do you give into your disappointment?

  • Vodka Diaries

    First-time director Kushal Srivastava's effort is evident as he attempts to make the most of this messy material, building suspense in some scenes, but dropping the pace in others.

  • 1921

    Writer-director Vikram Bhatt adds in every horror film trope and genre trick into a story that in the end has no top or bottom – much like some of its decapitated zombie characters.

  • Tiger Zinda Hai

    Go watch Tiger Zinda Hai if you're a fan of large-scale action entertainers, with probably just the right amount of logic. Salman Khan has well and truly arrived (again) with a potential blockbuster that has enough to keep you pinned. Good fun while it lasts.

  • Ribbon

    Not all ideas translate well to film and though are some moments of note, if Ribbon works at all, it is credit to Koechlin’s and Vyas’ committed and convincing performances.

  • Lucknow Central

    And while this jailhouse rock-on see-saws between musical drama and message movie, its origins in a true story (about a real life prison band called Healing Hearts) and it’s notation on the merits of reformation give it soul.

  • Poster Boys

    The audience gives up on the film by the point it starts making sense again, which is just a sign of weak filmmaking by a debutante director who lacks the technical acumen to shoulder a film with a promising premise.

    Sep 2017
  • Qaidi Band

    ...has an interesting premise, soul-stirring yet forgettable music and a promising newcomer (yeap, that's Anya). But it is buoyed down by a dishonest lead actor whose voice gets distorted by the silver spoon he carries in his mouth

  • Raag Desh

    ...is not a superlative film, particularly because of its treatment, editing and lack of a novel story. But what it excels at is brushing the dust off a forgotten chapter of the history textbooks in a way that we can revisit it, with equal amounts of pride and gratitude.

  • Mubarakan

    Fortunately, the humour does not degenerate to crass double entendres. Family entertainment is clearly at the core and Mubarakan manages to deliver enough laughs.

  • Munna Michael

    Director Sabbir Khan and writer Vimi Datta have designed a film that is serviced by Shroff’s two skills – dancing and action. In spite of being predictable story with slack storytelling, Khan once again (Heropanti, Baaghi) showcases just what is needed to keep Shroff’s fans satisfied. Put in enough of these two elements and who cares about logic, story, acting or originality.
