  • Kalank

    ...is stuck in a bizarre time warp of real world and surreal treatment. What ensues is not particularly poignant, but breathtaking to behold.

  • Romeo Akbar Walter

    Despite having a decent storyline, Director Robbie Grewal isn't able to get us on the edge-of-our-seats with this thriller. The movie appears 'raw' at many instances and one only wishes that it was cooked better.

  • Gone Kesh

    It's a bit disappointing then how Gone Kesh dilutes its sweet, straightforward momentum for a predictable climax and amplified sentimentality. Still, what it is conveying holds good.

    Mar 2019
  • Kesari

    21 Sikh soldiers against 10,000 Afghan tribesman -- it's a staggering statistic and splendid premise for a full-bloodied action film.

    A feat Kesari not only honours but delivers too if only you'll be patient.

  • Badla

    ...wears the air of a cold, civil, old-fashioned whodunit, which treats its premise like an insidious game and characters with undisguised suspicion.

    Mar 2019
  • Luka Chuppi

    Between not taking itself seriously and spewing gyaan over how to win youth votes, Luka Chuppi cannot decide what it wants to hide and where it needs to look.

  • Sonchiriya

    Chaubey and Sharma recreate a bygone era's lore and legends, groom it like a Western, pace it like a thriller, infuse it with surprises and social relevance around lyrical visuals and impactful writing, even its booming dishkyaons hit harder than all the empty pooh-pahing we hear around us all the time.

    Mar 2019
  • Total Dhamaal

    ...would be unwatchable without Madhuri's spunk and bossy swag playing off Anil Kapoor's bellyaching, bugged half's protests. This jodi deserves a better film. And you need no brains to know that.

  • Gully Boy

    ...Akhtar grabs our hand and walks us through a world that few of us know, even though it exists in Mumbai and other parts of India.

    And now we are blessed to have witnessed that world, breathed its smells and most importantly heard its sounds.

    Feb 2019
  • Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga

    ...wishes to lend itself as a significant voice of change and support towards the LGBT community, but its woefully apologetic tone regarding individual choices repeatedly negates it when characters -- both traumatised and enlightened -- spew things like, 'Yeh janam se hi aise hai' or 'I wish I was normal'.

  • Thackeray

    Even the hagiographic ones would be of two kinds: One that show an augmented picture of the leader, or as they say, an 'image makeover exercise'. And the other that revealed a truer picture of him and still be proud of it. Thackeray falls in the latter category.

  • Manikarnika

    A historical with an identity crisis, initially the period drama cannot decide whether it wants to chronicle facts or fictionalise them in the tradition of a crowd-pleasing fantasy. After some uncertainty, it settles for the second.

  • Uri

    After watching Uri: The Surgical Strike, one gets the feeling that Modi has added yet another tool to help him win the 2019 Lok Sabha election: Hindi cinema.
