  • The Sky Is Pink

    Despite the blatant manipulation, there are moments that left me with a heavy heart, and with a lump lodged in my throat. Still, watching a child’s life cut short should hurt like your heart’s being carved out of your flesh. The Sky is Pink never bruises you with that intensity.

    The film is all about its characters, frankly, and the hoops they're made to jump. In them you'll likely find traces and memories of your own youth.

  • Saaho

    The impressively staged but ultimately exhausting action sequences take up the bulk of screen time, but they can’t salvage this soulless film that has all the depth and emotional wallop of a video game.

  • Super 30

    ...is a dramatized, ‘Bollywoodized’ version of a true story, complete with too many songs, caricaturish villains, a deafening background score that cues every emotion, and the kind of rousing dialogue intended to elicit cheers.

  • Kabir Singh

    ...is an unmistakably misogynistic film, but the sad part is that it’s exactly these troubling portions that the filmmakers peddle as intense love. Even more sad is that there will be many who’ll buy into it.

    ...is exhausting and pointless. It exists only to add to the legend of Salman Khan as the selfless provider, the man who has a heart as big as his biceps. In Bharat, Salman Khan plays Bhai.

  • De De Pyaar De

    ...watching De De Pyaar De is a frustrating experience because while there are things to admire, including the unconventional ending, there is no escape from the lazy stereotypes, the simplistic moralizing, and the episodic, sitcom-style screenplay.

  • Student Of The Year 2

    ...is both predictable, and far from original. But that’s not even the big problem with the film. Unlike the previous instalment this one isn’t grounded in emotion, so it’s hard to be invested in the characters or affected by their conflicts.

    ...is ultimately tiring and heartbreaking even. You can see the talent on screen. If only there was a sharper script to harness it.

  • Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aaata Hai?

    At times, he takes the easy way out by over writing, and in places, Albert lets you lose your grip on the flow. But, nobody can deny that Ranade's effort is sincere and honest. Above all, it is bold and tries to waken us all up with a loud call against corruption and other forms of evil.

    On the upside, RAW, fortunately, is not a particularly lengthy film and once the protagonist gets into enemy territory, the thriller elements do kick in. The second half picks up pace building on the intrigue and gives us a satisfying ending.
