  • Jolly L.L.B.

    ...isn’t a great film, unfortunately not even as smart as Subhash Kapoor’s brilliant debut ‘Phas Gaye Re Obama’. But it is earnest in its tone and bright in its detailing.

  • Murder 3

    There is enough intrigue in the story for a captivating psychological thriller. But in the hands of Vishesh Bhatt, Randeep Hooda and Sara Loren everything threatening turns into incredibly foolish.

  • Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story

    Jayantabhai ki love story then becomes relegated to those interesting premises that are rendered useless by a tried-hard-but-just-didn’t-happen effort that lacks flair and imagination. Sad, because it did have a germ of a decent film within it.

  • Listen... Amaya

    ...does what it sets out to do, bringing us closer to the realities of those past their prime, with a modicum of success. It may not be an exciting film to watch, but it is a brave one to make.

  • Vishwaroop

    Vishwaroopam, unlike Kamal Hassan’s earlier epic ‘Dashavtharam’ isn’t flaky. But it is equally stilted and quite myopic in its approach. Yet, there is sombre tone and a seriousness within all the action-packed drama that makes it a film we could take seriously.

  • Race 2

    For all its attempts at providing a fast-paced action thriller, Race-2 overdoes it in all departments. The action over-done, the screenplay over-wrought, the sexiness overemphasized and the cool quotient too desperate to prove itself. There is a story somewhere in between...

  • AkaashVani

    Premise-wise, is a rather black and white situation the film sets itself within. As much as it delves into love’s confusions it makes the enemy a decidedly criminal situation, giving the film a clichéd outcome.

    Jan 2013
  • Inkaar

    What happens when a strong, socially relevant theme is dipped in glamour with its motivations set in thrilling rather than engaging with the subject? Inkaar.

  • Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

    There are several moments of sheer banality and indulgence that take away more than they contribute. But its brilliance lies in its rhetoric, symbolism and fanciful flights of imagination that makes it an extremely exciting film.

    Jan 2013
  • Table No. 21

    Although, there was much scope to milk the dark and claustrophobic undertones of the set-up, something the film ignores so blithely it seems it doesn’t know about its own potential. It could have been a much better film had it.

  • Dabangg 2

    What do you call a film trying hard to be exactly like its prequel? Cashing in on established brands is a popular and safe business tactic but not delivering more in the second round is a sign of not only foolishness but also complacency. Dabangg-2, from that measure, must be the laziest film ever made then.

  • Myoho

    ...the low production values and the under-written nature of the dialogues lends a certain unfinished, even amateurish feel to an otherwise genuine film.

    Dec 2012
  • Talaash

    Director and co-writer Reema Kagti carves an engaging and tight thriller that is a box of contradictions. It is well-written and stereotypical. Well-directed and unfinished. It mixes genres a little differently than the Bollywood norm without creating anything new.

    Dec 2012
  • Chakravyuh

    Prakash Jha’s filmography has largely centred on films related to social issues. In the recent times though, they have taken a template-like tone that is informed with resounding drama and distinctly Bollywoodian elements that sets it in a unique formulaic zone. Chakravyuh does nothing more than become yet another peg in this genre.

  • Student Of The Year

    An erratic narrative, superficial explorations of character motivations and a very representative love story reduces what could otherwise have been a lasting and enjoyable teen flick we could have truly cared for.

    Oct 2012
  • Aiyyaa

    ...mixes Bollywood conventions with some originality but with a very amateurish treatment. And it is precisely this that takes all the fun out of an otherwise interesting package.

    Oct 2012
  • Makkhi

    ...it holds onto good old story-telling conventions and serves a tight and engaging dramatic piece but as a lasting experience it falls way short.
