  • Batla House

    The Rashomon Effect, contradictory interpretations of a single event, is only introduced towards the end. By then, the film's conclusion is like most other police encounters. Fairly predictable.

  • Mission Mangal

    Despite its flaws of excessive sermons and some crucial characters like Taapsee and Kirti not fleshed out completely, Mission Mangal makes for an entertaining Independence Day watch. The flight might face some turbulence but it lands well.

  • Khandaani Shafakhana

    ...is another example that proves that Bollywood is thinking out of the box. But the subject alone isn't enough, the key is to present it in an engaging manner, with a dose of entertainment. The film tries to do so, but doesn't quite make the cut.

  • Judgemental Hai Kya

    Prakash Kovelamudi deserves applause for pushing the envelope with a quirky thriller that goes beyond the basic realms of a whodunnit, and makes people think and absorb. It treads into a zone Bollywood rarely ventures into.

  • Super 30

    Under the guidance of math wizard Anand Kumar, his Super 30 turned out to be miracles. Under the guidance of Vikas Bahl, Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 is far from one.

  • Kabir Singh

    Kabir Singh spends 120 minutes of its 154 in showing Kabir either drinking or drunk or snorting cocaine or needling in morphine or fighting with people or, slapping his girlfriend or screaming at her. Or making out. In the remaining 24 minutes, his repentance is done with, and we all go home with a happy ending. If you think it is okay, if you think it is justified because 'movie hai yaar, it's not real life', you are part of the problem. Misogyny is not cool. Neither is Kabir Singh.

  • Game Over

    ...is a multi-layered and concept-oriented film that has its heart at the right place. With a screenplay that offers many thrills...

  • Bharat

    ...has its own share of problems, beginning with the near-three-hour runtime. But when people wait a year for a Salman Khan Eid release, can you really blame the superstar for giving his fans their larger-than-life hero in an out-and-out entertainer, replete with song and dance?

  • PM Narendra Modi

    Maybe the makers of PM Narendra Modi the film should have taken their own recipe of the perfect tea a little seriously: add just a bit of sugar. Because when you have too much sugar, the tea is inedible.

  • Blank

    ...could have been sharper and crisper, had the makers not gotten overexcited with Sunny Deol starring in the film, who just drowns out everyone else.

  • Kalank

    The Bollywood that we have grown up with, has sold to us these 'unnamed' relationships packaged in goodlooking sets since Silsila. Nothing has changed in these four decades. We still cannot deal with transgression in societal norms and relationships unless looked at from a safe distance. In 2019, our lives are a lot more complex than the simple 'solutions' Bollywood dishes out to us.

  • The Tashkent Files

    Vivek Agnihotri's target is obvious, as is the fact that the film and its conveniently-timed release is "Lok Sabha chunaav ke liye ek zabardast mudda". Skip The Tashkent Files at ease.

  • Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

    What makes Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota more endearing, is that it is strewn with Bollywood clichés, like separated childhood sweethearts, good-and-evil twins, and the hunt for a locket. It is both a celebration and a gentle mockery of Bollywood’s usual tropes.

    Mar 2019
  • Kesari

    ...is the rousing patriotic film that Akshay Kumar fans wait for all year round. But it is a lot more than just that and deserves a watch this Holi.

    Mar 2019
  • Hamid

    The scenes between Dugal and Reshi, low on melodrama and high on intensity, are heartbreaking to behold. Bohot hard that you’d need to keep those handkerchiefs ready.

    Mar 2019
  • Photograph

    It takes a while to warm up to this plaintive world of Batra's and the pacing is a little agonising at points. His ideas are wonderful but his insistence on giving the film an understated touch can leave you rather underwhelmed.

    Mar 2019
  • Badla

    Sharp editing, intense music score and beautiful cinematography work wonders for the film. A strong narrative backed by good performances make Ghosh's Badla a winner.

  • Gully Boy

    ...suffers from a slow pace. The film takes its own sweet time to establish the story. And when it does, there is too little to bask in the glory of. The film ends on an abrupt note. It catapults its underdog to the big stage but doesn't let the viewer soak it in. After investing 2 hours and 35 minutes in the film, you feel a little cheated.
