  • Chef

    ...holds no secret sauce of its own, but perhaps we shouldn't be that surprised. There is only that much you can do with a reheated film.

  • Judwaa 2

    ...might work for those that don't mind being sold old trash in a new, garishly painted sack. For all others, it would be akin to being strapped to a seat in a torture chamber.

  • CRD

    ...is a classy, satisfying, magnificently inventive package. It heralds the birth of a filmmaker who clearly has the makings of a path-breaker, if he already isn't one.

    Sep 2017
  • Newton

    ...a film that, while striving to be admirably dry, proves at times to be achingly dull. The film's go-nowhere pace seems to be a conscious decision but its highest, most telling moments come through scintillating lines of dialogue (take a bow, Mayank Tewari) and actorly flourishes from a great ensemble.

  • Simran

    Unfortunately the film, doubling up as a showreel for the actress, pretends also to be a drama, a thriller, even a sweet romance. None of these other gears work well enough, and the eventual result is tedious.

  • Daddy

    See it for the austere unflinching portrayal of violence. For sounds and visuals that do not afford us the luxury of aesthetic gratification. And most of all, for Arjun Rampal's powerful performance that creeps up on us without warning.

    Sep 2017
  • Poster Boys

    While the premise is wafer-thin, the frothy plot after a few minutes becomes tedious. But it is the base writing credited to Bunty Rathore and Paritosh Painter that keeps the momentum of the narrative well-greased. With puns, film referenced dialogues, fast-paced dumb repartee and farcical situations the film is a hilarious ride.

    Sep 2017
  • Baadshaho

    There is no dearth of surface gloss in Badshaho. A peep behind the glossy curtain reveals an overcooked but bland curry western that deserves instant banishment to the wilderness it has emerged from.

    Sep 2017
  • Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

    ...stays strictly within the limits of acceptability in dealing with a thorny theme that could easily have plunged into overt awkwardness. Lightheartedness is the cloak it wears to conceal its uneasy patches. That it succeeds in that endeavour more often than not is a measure of the director's ability.

    Sep 2017
  • Babumoshai Bandookbaaz

    ...hurtles towards an insipid, unintelligible climax, which includes a bout of Russian roulette between two adversaries. It is, in the end, much ado about nothing because the outcome of the life-and-death contest is as predictable as everything else in the film.

  • Toilet

    ...all hell breaks loose (and hell, loos are broken) as the screenplay is gradually replaced by a government pamphlet. It all becomes painfully predictable, from a media scrum to a nick of time climax, and this film could well have been titled Poop-li Live.

    Aug 2017
  • Toilet

    The intent of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha may be commendable. The execution is hugely hamfisted. When a Bollywood filmmaker assumes the role of a cheerleader for a government campaign on whose efficacy the jury is still out, you know you've been had.

    Aug 2017
  • Raag Desh

    ...blends details drawn from extensive research and some amount of fiction to rustle up a narrative that has enough drama to keep the audience engaged through its run time of two and a quarter hours.

    Aug 2017
  • Indu Sarkar

    ...demonstrates that it doesn't matter who is in charge if the thinking is oppressive. It serves also as potent warning to those in power now and in the future, threatening their legacies. Behave yourselves or else Madhur Bhandarkar will make a film about you.

  • Mubarakan

    The rigmarole is enjoyable up to a point but once the idiocy quotient peaks, the overlong Mubarakan goes somewhat haywire. Yet, if it isn't as insufferable as other average Bollywood romantic comedies, a part of the credit goes to the actors.

  • Munna Michael

    ...is only for fans of Tiger Shroff. All ye that haven't yet figured out what he is about, stay out of the way. You aren't likely to go home humming and dancing after watching this one.
