  • Welcome Back

    But if you've had an exhausting week and need some laughs, leave your rational self at home and head for this brain-buster at a theatre near you.

    Chess is considered the most complex board game and one that provides mental stimulation; this film is neither complex nor stimulating. At best, it's a series of predictable ploys strung together with the backdrop of a revenge drama.

  • War Chhod Na Yaar

    The good thing about War Chhod Na Yaar is that it satirises the Indo-Pak border standoff, pokes (tongue-firmly-in-cheek) fun at everyone concerned and delivers a message that war benefits all the wrong people. The problem is that it fails to sustain its attitude...

    ...at best, leaves one mildly confused and occasionally concerned about its erratic proceedings. It also weaves an elaborate ruse to rationalise the scattered plot.

  • Vishwaroop II

    The first part of this film had shocking twists such as the drastic transformation of an effeminate Kathak teacher who was a closet Bond tailing terrorists. This one is a watered-down version that barely draws on the veteran actor’s many talents and scripts its own demise.

  • Vishwaroop

    ...the film is of a massive scale, well shot, the action set pieces are up to scratch; but it feels long, is occasionally tedious and performances are way too over the top.

  • Veere Di Wedding

    While this one works as a breezy film on girl bonding, it gets a bit tedious while taking a stab at patriarchy. In fact, a message it hopes to convey on the societal pressures endured by women is lazily tucked into a dialogue. “Pehle shaadi karo, phir bachcha, phir bachcha hua toh doosre bachche ka pressure.” It almost seems like old whine in a new bottle.

    It's upsetting that Ram Gopal Varma fans have to put up with this. Even the very few and far between visual flourishes are merely reminders of an auteur that was.

    ...doesn’t have is any kind of a script or a director, forget about any other related sense or sensibility. The film is a brutal assault on all your senses...

    ...it takes a little more than getting five shirtless boys to nose dive from a 15-feet cliff into water to make a Rang De Basanti.

    ...if the film delved a little more into strategy and emotions, it could’ve been more inclusive, if not a more intense watch. Not the chest-beating JP Dutta-type jingoism, but just a dash on what drives these brave men would’ve gone a long way.

    ...takes a chestthumping, crowd-pleasing concept and turns it into a preachy mess that might discourage future attempts at this genre.

    ...could’ve been a comic account that captures this peculiar sentiment by drawing hilarity from its socially awkward circumstances. But it barely scrapes beneath the surface and lacks depth in depiction.

    I disliked what I saw, and I dislike thinking or even writing about its familiar environment. And this vile aftertaste is perhaps Mr. Kashyap's most significant achievement.

  • Udta Punjab

    While the film wins for constructing jolting surprises, some of the performances are singularly unremarkable and the excessive and unnecessary violence is not exactly everyone's daily fix.

    ...is real and sharp, the story telling brisk despite the silences, the nuanced music fits in well, and the debutant director displays a sure, deft hand.

    An issue with Indian horrors has been lack of imagination. A treasure chest that offers a gateway into a goddess’ womb, a cursed undead whose heart beats even while the body has disintegrated and several such constructs cover this concern. Writers Mitesh Shah, Adesh Prasad, Anand Gandhi and Rahi Anil Barve (also the director), deserve due credit.
