  • Ekk Deewana Tha

    Even if you dont mind the lack of detailing, you cant avoid the potholes in the script. As we wait for Jessie to make up her mind, the film loses its coherence.

  • Agent Vinod

    While the basics make sure that Agent Vinod is way better than run-of-the-mill Bollywood, our standards for Sriram Raghavan are sky high. This is a disappointment only because we expect a lot more from the guy who takes his time and dedicates himself completely to films.

  • Bumboo

    A wannabe Bheja Fry, this crass, scatalogical humour-infested stagey remake is just about funny enough to make you source out the French original Lemmerdeur "A Pain in the Ass".

  • Hate Story

    The film may give morality a Dam(n) but there has to be logic. Thanks to the jerky narrative, instead of empathising with the characters you start laughing at them.

  • Tezz

    Set out to make a thriller, Priyadarshan delivers an unintentional comedy which is neither sharp nor sensible.

  • Jannat 2

    This is the kind of film that would have gone straight to video in Hollywood, made strictly for a niche audience of a niche film. So dont worry about missing this. Just a matter of time before they make it again as Jannat 3.

  • Fatso

    Using magical realism Kapoor deals with deep-seated human quandaries in a light-hearted fashion but ultimately fails to realise the potential of the subject.

  • Ishaqzaade

    Writer-Director Habib Faisal succeeds to a great extent in crafting an unpredictable first half full of spunk and spirit, but plays it boringly safe in the second, offering no new solutions or fresh perspectives in a story that has been done to death.

  • Department

    It's high time the filmmaker struggling with form realised that this nauseatingly gimmicky camerawork he has been afflicted with in his last few films distracts from the story.

  • Yeh Khula Aasmaan

    The film unwinds at a lazy, sluggish pace which in itself wouldn't have been such a bad thing if it did create genuinely heart-warming moments without relying on melodrama or a sentimental overdose.

  • Shanghai

    With not a single dull moment and every department in fine form, this is tour de force filmmaking. Simply one of the best and bravest films you will see this year.

  • Gangs Of Wasseypur

    All that coolth and pop realism may do well with the die hard Kashyap cult but for the rest of us who paid to watch a bloody saga of revenge, it seems like a long wait at the circus.
