  • Badrinath Ki Dulhania

    ...treading the fine line between preachy and peachy, this one keeps you intermittently entertained and interested in the proceedings, even while the shallow attempt at female empowerment seems a bit jaded.

    Relying on jaded tropes such as flickering lights, grisly halls, smoky corridors and chalk-faced spirits, there's little here that we've not seen in desi horror films in the last few decades.

    Shot years ago, most of the cast probably signed up for it early in their careers. This will be an uncomfortable watch, even for them.

  • 22 Yards

    The incestuous relationship shared between sports agents, players and journalists offered enough fodder for an inspiring story. This film chews on that fodder and spits it out without a thought.

    ...is a far cry from most mysteries and even while some of its turns and twists can be predicted, it manages to hold your interest and attention for a large part of the film. Something one can barely say of most films today.

  • 6-5=2

    The first rule is that these films should be scary and the actors, naturalistic. Their deaths should invoke horror, not glee and relief that they're finally being bumped off.

  • 72 Hours

    Director and lead Dhyani had the unique advantage of placing himself in the centre of the action and allowing the rest of the cast to fade to the background. But even then, his highlighted performance barely hits the spot and fails to interest or engage audiences with this story.

  • A Decent Arrangement

    It's hardly surprising that NRI filmmakers manage to capture the essence and eccentricity of our ways with greater restraint. As evident here, theirs is essentially an outsider's inside perspective, an honest union of craft and storytelling uncluttered by commercial aspirations.

  • A Gentleman

    ...this offering which packs in comedy, action and everything else, yet doesn't entirely fit into the 'masala' construct. Managing this is a feat in itself.

  • Aagaya Hero

    It is upsetting to see Govinda here. With an enviable filmography, one wants to remember him as the ‘Number 1’ star whose memorable one-liners and dance numbers can’t be replicated by any contemporary actor.

  • Aalaap

    For a film that claims to "explore the different sides of Naxalism", Aalaap's politics are muddled, its objective naïve, and method laughable.

    If only a more generous fraction of these tens of crores was spent on hiring writing talent and a little more time spent with the actors, we might've had a half-decent action film.
