  • Julie 2

    In between bizarre and shocking, Raai Laxmi keeps gyrating in body-hugging suits and shiny bikinis. She also dances on a song titled ‘Malasina (or Mala Sinha!) Dikhayegi Filmy Dance’. She oohs and aahs, even unhooks her bra twice or thrice, to make it work, but all in vain.

  • Ajji

    The mood is right, the tone is right, the pace is right. The film doesn’t delve in the grey zone. There are two sides and you need to pick one.

  • Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana

    The film ticks all Bollywood boxes -- romance, drama, revenge, songs et al. But beyond the song and dance routine, it also shines light on gender inequality, dowry and corruption, holding a mirror up to us as a people.

  • Ittefaq

    ...tries its best to create intrigue, and doesn’t give the audience a lot of time to think twice about a single event. That is its biggest achievement.

    Nov 2017
  • Ribbon

    ...rakes up a lot of issues that deserve at least a discourse in the current scenario, but instead, ends up only fleetingly touching these. Neither the characters nor the narrative take upon the evils and the evil-doers.

  • 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.
