  • Mulk

    This film takes an important step in defining terrorism and underlining the differences between a suspect and a criminal. It succeeds in intent and purpose, but sadly fails when it comes to storytelling.

  • Vishwaroop II

    That indubitably is Kamal directing the film as a director and not filmmaker. We can see the savvy politician Kamal is doing great onscreen. Wisam, unfortunately, is lost in the back ground.

  • Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3

    The complexity of the relationship between Jimmy and Mahie is not a point of concern for the writers. They have assumed that the audience already knows it after the past films. That leaves the two actors grasping for straws. Actually, whatever worked in the previous films is absent here and add-ons are totally out of sync.

  • Soorma

    ...doesn’t attempt to probe beyond the obvious, even if you don’t know the real story. With 131-minute duration, Soorma presents Sandeep as the ultimate boy scout. A tinge of reality wouldn’t have hurt.

  • Sanju

    As director, Hirani, faced an uphill task in bringing back all those memories in their truest form in Sanju. Hirani does it the way Hirani can, by bringing in the humour and heart in almost every sequence, even the serious ones.

  • Race 3

    Salman Khan and company never hint that they’re making a cerebral film, or a film that would offer you anything beyond unabashed entertainment in true Bollywood style. There is an army of actors who swirl, twirl and hurl bullets and dialogues at will. The problem is when the thrilling bits end up comic, unintentionally so.

  • Bioscopewala

    ...it celebrates humanity across cultural boundaries just as cinema is presented as a means of rebellion. How violence -- in the name of religion or a nation – destroys humans and humanity is showcased through touching visuals.

    May 2018
  • Parmanu

    John Abraham’s deadpan expressions are a hindrance but he somehow manages to hold his ground. Other actors follow his footsteps. It’s the writing that saves the day for Abraham and Parmanu.

    May 2018
  • Khajoor Pe Atke

    Despite a promising theme, Khajoor Pe Atke is somewhere lost in translation. Thanks to Manoj and Seema Pahwa’s terrific comic timing, the audience bears to sit through this 120-minute botched up relationship drama.

    May 2018
  • Raazi

    ...is a sensibly written and finely performed film that takes a close look at the ordinary lives of extraordinary people. Not to miss.

    May 2018
  • Daas Dev

    ...this is too much ambition for any film and Daas Dev veers between a love story, a political saga, a thriller and a Shakespearean power game. It flirts with all of those different genres but never pledges its troth to any.

  • Beyond The Clouds

    Despite excellent symbols and good performances in patches, Beyond The Clouds remains something we have seen and had expected. The uniqueness of the film hardly crosses the crowded bylanes. Majid Majidi’s foreign eyes see what all of them see.

    Apr 2018
  • Hichki

    ...is a well-intentioned film that will give you ample opportunities to wipe tears, but it doesn’t make a strong comment.

    Mar 2018
  • Raid

    With a tighter editing, slightly less focus on the wannabe love story and a lesser dose of melodrama, Raid could have been a gripping thriller.

    Mar 2018
  • Hate Story IV

    ...is all about actors thinking real loud in their heads and then cat-walking in slow motion towards the camera. And when they’re not doing it, they are either spiking drinks or ogling creepily at women.

    Mar 2018
  • Dil Juunglee

    ...is an age-old story, told with a hundred stereotypes, none of which helps it. It is only Taapsee’s charming presence and Saqib’s earthiness that keep us entertained.
