  • Kaamyaab

    The story of Kaamyaab is infused with emotions, but predictable. Which is why the film feels a bit stretched in places, especially the last scene.

  • Love Aaj Kal

    To see that Sara and even Kartik, who hasn't really cemented his foot as an actor but clearly wants to, have surrendered themselves to Imtiaz Ali, and then ended up with a poorly written script, limited characterisation and sub-par direction, is heartbreaking.

  • Shikara

    ...is a film on the plight of Kashmiri Pandits made with the right amount of sensibility and compassion. While it touches hearts in many parts, it also compels you to question if everything was clearly black and white with no shades of grey.

  • Jawaani Jaaneman

    Though Jawaani Jaaneman is backed by strong performances, it couldn't make the film memorable. It suffers from a slow-paced predictable plot and patchy editing.

  • Panga

    A bit of willing suspension of disbelief, a lot of that feel-good factor that comes from watching an underdog win, Panga delivers the highs wonderfully.

  • Tanhaji

    By showing a human being with extraordinary capabilities by exaggerating his qualities, to the point of making him unbelievably superhuman, the makers lose an opportunity. They end up turning this historical hero into a fictional creation and not a flesh-and-blood person who can inspire the upcoming generations.

  • Dabangg 3

    Some films are experiences, and therefore, shouldn't be restricted with star ratings, or discussions about the film's merit. A Salman Khan film, in this context, is a rollercoaster ride. You buy a ticket, stand in line, take your seat, buckle yourself up, and pray to the almighty that you don't puke on thy neighbour.

  • Panipat

    Ashutosh Gowariker may not be able to do grandeur like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but he can do war. Yet, a lacklustre cinematography and terrible CGI mars this solid attempt. It would have worked 10 years ago.

  • Bala

    ...is not just a celebration of Bollywood but also its critique, which questions the stereotypes set by our cinema about beauty. The film exudes a feel-good warmth you were waiting for, for so long.

  • Ujda Chaman

    The film mainly lacks in the writing department. It could have been a fun, slice-of-life film which could have brought a serious issue into general discourse, but loose writing makes it rather bland.

  • Saand Ki Aankh

    ...is a pleasant family watch for the Diwali weekend. Take your main women along. If possible, add your khadoos taus and uncles of your family to that list, to show them the mirror in an indirect way.

  • Laal Kaptaan

    ...Laal Kaptaan's biggest flaw is that it is too heavily dependent on Saif, but doesn't offer the necessary support for him to pull it through. Ultimately, it remains a film that had all the right ingredients but is still under-cooked.

  • The Sky Is Pink

    ...is precariously balanced between being overdramatic and overtly subtle - like Shoojit Sircar's October was overtly subtle. It leaves you with a lingering afterthought, I'm afraid most will not get.

  • Dream Girl

    Raaj Shaandilyaa deserves credit for bringing something new to the table. However, his hesitation to delve deeper into the subject makes it score less on the report card.

  • Chhichhore

    ...is a one-time watch and is for those who are are still hung up on their college life. But it is no 3 Idiots. You might want to call your college buddies after the film.
