  • Pad Man

    Despite being peppered with melodrama and some scenes that go on for too long, the entertaining PadMan delivers a robust message -- the importance of women’s menstrual health.

  • Mukkabaaz

    ...is the best film in last one year or so, and this year couldn’t start on a better note. Let’s cherish Vineet Singh and his thickheaded brawler with open heart.

  • Kaalakaandi

    Every other actor -- be it Shobhita, Neil Bhoopalam or Amyra -- falls victim to an ill-thought, half-baked screenplay. Kaalakaandi, nonetheless, has its moments and Saif Ali Khan’s uninhibited performance tops the list.

  • 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.

    Nov 2017
  • 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.

    Oct 2017
  • 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.
