  • Ranchi Diaries

    With Gangs of Wasseypur, Anurag Kashyap created a genre of dark humour and crime stories set in small towns. Sattwik Mohanty’s Ranchi Diaries is the laziest attempt we have seen in the genre.

  • Chef

    ...offers moments of brilliance which, if weaved in a more organised manner, may have given us a light, affable film. But a lazy and rather uninterested narrative takes away the pleasure.

    Oct 2017
  • CRD

    The beauty of the film lies in its absurdity, audacity and cheekiness - you get to hear and see things that you don’t expect from a typical Hindi film.

    Sep 2017
  • Bhoomi

    ...is a revenge drama that tries a lot to be bold, brave and advocate feminism but wants to stay in the comfort zone of a typical Bollywood masala film. The result is stereotypes, over-the-top melodrama and a predictable story.

    Sep 2017
  • Simran

    ...all of it seems so self-indulgent that neither the film nor the protagonist is successful in making the audience empathise or identify with her.

    Sep 2017
  • Sameer

    It is the well-knit screenplay and crisp editing that maintains the pace and makes Sameer an edge-of-the-seat thriller with a few melodramatic dialogues thrown in.

    Sep 2017
  • Daddy

    With a sloppy storyline and over-dramatic dialogues, there is nothing fresh to watch in Daddy except for Arjun Rampal’s performance...

    Sep 2017
  • Baadshaho

    ...has too many ordinarily written characters jostling for whistle-worthy one-liners for 136-minutes. Eventually they run short of the steam and Baadshaho becomes a rehashed ‘90s story with some gloss and a lot of disappointment.

    Sep 2017
  • Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

    Prasanna presents Shubh Mangal Saavdhan in a rather flat manner and refuses to give space to characters other than the hero and heroine, leaving behind one mess of what could have been a fun-filled entertainer.

    Sep 2017
  • A Gentleman

    ...Raj and DK have managed to narrate the plain and full-of-cliches story in their own quirky style and their dialogues and the screenplay make it fun to watch.

    Aug 2017
  • Qaidi Band

    ...brings up a new concept and offers some wonderful songs, but that’s about it. It remains an average story told in an average way.

    Aug 2017
  • Babumoshai Bandookbaaz

    ...appears superficial because it fails to explore characters and their idiosyncrasies. It states everything about them in a matter of fact tone which eventually slacken the audience’s connect with them.

    Aug 2017
  • Gurgaon

    ...Shankar’s style of filmmaking is a reminder of Anurag Kashyap’s craft. The rawness of their characters, the unapologetic attitude and a sensible handling of social and gender equations is all there.

    Aug 2017
  • Indu Sarkar

    While the film was publicised as a film “on Emergency”, it actually oscillates between a political drama and a typical Bollywood film about a couple. Unfortunately, the transition between the two narratives is neither smooth nor convincing.

  • Jagga Jasoos

    It’s a cliché, but no other word can sum up Jagga Jasoos better: Cinematic. Well, that’s it. Jagga Jasoos is the most ‘cinematic’ film you have seen in the recent months.

    Jul 2017
  • Shab

    Onir’s expertise is seen in the way he handles these characters and their stories - his sensible filmmaking is written all over the frames.

    Jul 2017
  • Mom

    The good thing is, Mom does what it intends to: Become a film that can hold the audience’s attention for 148 minutes. There are no intricacies that unfold step by step (it’s mostly predictable, really), but Girish Kohli’s screenplay ensures an entertaining drama.
