  • Andhadhun

    Raghavan's ability to shock an entire cinema hall including the most immovable, emotionless fan coupled with his ability to make the audience laugh during these moments where your heart is in your mouth defines his unique brand of cinema.

  • Pataakha

    Bhardwaj though doesn't delve too deep into making them agents of change, more inclined to return to the shenanigans that provides the laughs. Pataakha further succumbs to taking a clichéd route to create drama and conflict, one more befitting in soap operas.

  • Sui Dhaaga

    ...gives his viewers a classic story of struggle and persistence. The film culminates in a predictable climax, but that does not diminish the experience of soaking in Sui Dhaaga.

  • Manto

    In a time when the past is being manufactured to present an alternate reality, perhaps revisiting Manto's unflinching prose is what we direly need. That's the biggest takeaway from Das's biopic.

  • Love Sonia

    ...inconsistencies can't take away from Mrunal Thakur's work who essays the character with conviction, capturing its naiveté, guilt and fractured spirit adeptly. If you love Sonia by the end of it, it's because of her.

    Sep 2018
  • Stree

    After regaling audiences with many ideas it's a bit of a letdown to see a film venture on a all-too familiar terrain. Stree tries to give its female ghost an identity that goes beyond revenge, yet by the end she also feels nothing beyond a scream queen.

  • Satyameva Jayate

    With the clock ticking past the two hour mark, all the spiel on farz, izzat, imaandari is too familiar. You are left with a realisation: truth hurts but Satyamev Jayate hurts more.

    Aug 2018
  • Vishwaroop II

    Audiences would wish that like her character they too could forget majority of Vishwaroop 2 which is several notches low on entertainment than its average predecessor.

    Aug 2018
  • Mulk

    The film has its heart in the right place. But Sinha's overexcitement to put forth his message gets the better of him. The courtroom drama tends to get a little too theatrical, but without any discernible damage.

    Aug 2018
  • Soorma

    The film falls supremely short of harnessing dramatic potential and is just another hackneyed run-of-the-mill biopic. A champion is turned into a colourless Bollywood hero.

    Jul 2018
  • Sanju

    Given the kind of biopics we have seen in commercial mainstream Bollywood so far, Sanju has definitely raised the bar. Watch Sanju for Ranbir Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, the laughs, the tears... in a nutshell, everything.

  • Race 3

    There are full-fledged military wars in Cambodia because nothing less than a war can do justice to Salman's calibre. There is Salman Khan flying over Al Shifah because helicopters are so passe. There is Bhai launching bazookas because why undermine him with lesser weapons like AK-47. There are five extra actors in the film to support Salman because he needs to outshine all of them. Nothing is measured in Race 3. You ask for a shot of Salman, you're given a gallon of him. Deal with it however you want.

  • Veere Di Wedding

    The good part - Veere Di Wedding isn't as frivolous as Rhea Kapoor's other productions like Aisha and Khoobsurat. It does break a few stereotypes with its story-telling. It's a film that you cannot completely dismiss for being too bold, too outrageous or too offensive.

  • Bhavesh Joshi Superhero

    ...is an attempt to propel the individual out of apathy, and asks us to channelise our anger in the right direction. It doesn't succeed entirely, but Motwane's fresh take on the wearied superhero genre is worth a watch.

    Jun 2018
  • Parmanu

    If you can get through two hours of clichéd dialogues, occasional deadpan textbook dialogues from John Abraham and much desh-bhakti, there is an interesting climax as a reward waiting for you, at the end.

    May 2018
  • Hope Aur Hum

    ...barring a few amusing moments where the characters come alive, Bandyopadhyay struggles to maintain the feel-good temperament or make his characters endearing. Hope aur Hum ultimately lacks purpose.

    May 2018
  • Raazi

    She (Alia Bhatt) is present in almost every scene post her character's introduction and she shines throughout even when the film stutters near the end.

    May 2018
  • 102 Not Out

    ...if you are game for a family drama with a message, 102 Not Out is a film for you. Because 102 Not Out has its heart in the right place, if not many other things.
