  • Love Aaj Kal

    What is confounding is that the refined film technique we have seen and liked in his oeuvre, goes missing here. This movie looks and sounds like a bad student film.

    ...there is very little of plot or character that you remember. Recollected in tranquility, the movie passes by in a blur of police sirens, killings, snorting, and skimpily dressed people partying like there is no tomorrow.

  • Panga

    ...his is a well meaning movie that weaves the joys of domesticity with the sporting life, and turns both into a bit of a bore.

  • Chhapaak

    ...the emotional resonance, moments of poignancy, that you expect from a Meghna Gulzar film, are missing. What is left is an uneven movie.

  • Dabangg 3

    The characteristic style of the franchise disintegrates, until the narrative implodes in a messy trail of unbelievable plot turns and disjunctive scenes.

    ...is an entertaining film. But ultimately, it is an unconvincing presentation on the tribulation of early hair loss.

  • Ujda Chaman

    ...does fall prey to a few rom-com cliches in the middle. But it perks up later on, and treats us to some delightfully well played and resonant scenes between the lead actors, sequences that bring a measure of proportionality to the film.

  • Judgemental Hai Kya

    So apart from the occasionally engaging antics of Kangana Ranaut in the lead role, the film ends up with little educative or entertainment value. This movie has a good cast, but ultimately disappoints.

  • Kabir Singh

    Gender prejudice or ideological persuasion notwithstanding, it is undeniable that the dialogue written for Shahid, and the skill with which he projects it on screen, makes this movie very watchable.

  • Bharat

    ...is no masterpiece, but it is that rare thing, a film that bonds a family with a nation, and does it with affection. Any element of divisiveness is excluded. And that, in itself, is a good enough reason to watch it.
