  • Ribbon

    The movie falls short as a study of modern marriage because of Karan’s absence, but it is far more effective as an examination of contemporary parenting.

  • Tu Hai Mera Sunday

    Through its cross-weave of characters and subplots, Tu Hai Mera Sunday suggests that the spirit of Mumbai isn’t a cliché. All it needs is some space to stretch and kick around a ball or two.

  • CRD

    ...remains audacious throughout, carried along by the top-notch acting and the plethora of surprises that the writers keep throwing at their characters and the viewers.

  • Haseena Parkar

    In its attempt to valourise Haseena as an innocent victim of destiny, the movie misses the opportunity to add another chapter to the ongoing saga of Dawood Ibrahim and his clan.

    Sep 2017
  • Lucknow Central

    ...manages to make well-trodden material seem far more interesting than it actually is. Despite its unwieldy length and unconvincing climax, the movie is far superior to the similarly themed August 25 release Qaidi Band, with better developed characters, a better narrative and score and welcome humour.

  • Simran

    The monomania that characterises Simran – the furtherance of the assertion that Kangana Ranaut can carry off just about anything – dooms the movie to repetition and facetiousness. Ranaut gives the role her all, but her relentless optimism and self-belief in the face of trying circumstances are barely convincing.

  • Daddy

    The problem with making yet another gangster film is that somebody has done it before and, in all probability, done a better job.

  • Poster Boys

    The issue of over-population is tackled with a light hand and while the humour is anything but subtle, Poster Boys will appeal to fans of the brothers Deol looking for an inoffensive good time.

  • Baadshaho

    ...the main culprit is the execution that is so jaded and predictable that even if you dozed off and woke up after an hour, you would know exactly what’s happening on the screen.

    Sep 2017
  • Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

    The screenplay manages to walk the line between crass and preachy, keeping the balance between comedy, romance and the sensitivities around a taboo topic. However, a collection of nice moments and thoughts is untidily stitched together.

  • Toilet

    ...pans out exactly like a public service announcement video produced by Swachh Bharat Abhiyan: it demands attention because of the seriousness of the subject, but makes little effort to engage its intended recipients.

  • Jab Harry Met Sejal

    If the baseline for Jab Harry Met Sejal is ‘what you seek is seeking you’, then it’s time for Imtiaz Ali to seek a new canvas, because the idea of characters travelling in order to find answers within themselves seems to be suffering from acute jetlag.

  • Raag Desh

    ...doesn’t meet the requirements of the historical epic in terms of its production values, but it does match the genre’s basic requirement: the only reason to travel back into the past is to ponder about the present.

    Jul 2017
  • Mubarakan

    ...the cast assemble and disperse when required, pull faces on demand, and try to keep up with the twists that Mubarakan’s writers conjure up at every bend because somebody on the production thought that it was a good idea to have a 156- minute movie about mixed identities.

  • Indu Sarkar

    ...is a valuable addition to a slim catalogue of films about the excesses of the period even though it lacks the political insights of the better works about the Emergency.
