  • Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

    Pedestrian wit works best around actors who don't just go with the flow, but shape it to suit their comical timing. That's the difference between performers and parrots. But the underwhelming leads of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety don't seem to know the difference at all.

  • Pad Man

    ...dramatises his reality to accomodate romance and distinction with a calculation that is one of the weakest aspects of an otherwise constructive narrative.

  • Padmaavat

    As the film progresses, you tire of the been-there seen-that spectacle. You want a story. You want good dialogue, not the corny words you are hearing. You want an emotional connect. You want a tighter film. Sadly, with Padmaavat, that's not what you get.

  • Mukkabaaz

    My worry is that many who are not fond of Kashyap's usual complex sensibility would like this latest move: They'll applaud the fact that he's going for the tear glands with brass knuckles on.

    The tragedy of Mukkabaaz is not that it aims low; the tragedy is that it aims low and hits.

  • Firangi

    Firangi's persistence to club romantic overtures, non-cooperation movement mania, 19th century naiveté and con-adventure spunk in its 160 minutes running time proves to be its undoing. That's just too much to take in a movie that neither wants to be fun or funny.

  • Kadvi Hawa

    ...don't let anybody tell you that Kadvi Hawa is a manifesto for the fight against climate change or that it's an austere, unforgiving, movie. This is an intensely felt, beautifully expressed, sustained piece of cinema.

  • Ribbon

    Though the movie piques your interest in bits and pieces, especially in the second half, the abrupt end will leave you disappointed.

  • Ranchi Diaries

    ...unless you’re a movie watcher who can swallow a good chunk while spitting out the rest, you are likely to forget this stretch of Ranchi Diaries five minutes after you have staggered out of it.

  • Tu Hai Mera Sunday

    ...is pitched as a story about ‘coming together.’ But Milind Dhaimade’s true strength, perhaps, is in taking a microcosm, splitting it, and analysing its small segments. It’s when he tries to bring everything together, that his energies get dispersed.

  • Chef

    Grown up angst is a valid and neglected aspect of our storytelling. Except Menon’s digressing exploration of it feels more dull than delicious.

  • Judwaa 2

    Judwaa 2’s balloon of recycled gas soon goes phus and what’s left is tedious buffoonery of the brainless, for the brainless and by the brainless.
