  • Highway

    He has not reached the destination but Imtiaz makes a brave attempt to extricate himself from the sanitised Highway of Bollywood.

  • Gunday

    If only the director had the guts to channel all the sexual tension into a Brokeback Mountain-esque love story instead of this faux bromance. Unfortunately, the characters are completely in denial of this chemistry and stick to the unwritten rules of the System.

  • Heartless

    A vehicle to relaunch his son, the director spends a lot of raw stock in showcasing his skills. The problem is he is short on content and a large portion of the film is reduced to a show reel of Junior Suman interspersed with songs that are shot like music videos.

  • Dedh Ishqiya

    ...is that rare kind of film that borrows from the Westerns, as much as it does from Indian cinema and even Urdu literature. It’s a curious mix — the best of the West and the East, the old and the new, the classy and the cheap — done seamlessly and effortlessly.

  • Mr Joe B. Carvalho

    It is supposed to be a satire; it is supposed to be a theatre of the absurd but unfortunately all that remains an idea on paper. On screen it is relentless torture.

  • Mahabharat

    Mahabharat deserves a liberal reading but apart from Karna’s episode Amaan has remained true to the traditional rendering of the epic and there is hardly any effort to delve into the moral dilemmas of the characters.

  • Bullett Raja

    Dhulia here is not paying tribute to the B movie in his own distinctive style. He is announcing himself to be a B movie maker with Bullett Raja. Or maybe he tried tribute but has been unable to lend this an iota of creativity or class.

  • Ram-leela

    If you are in the mood for a sensory overdose, this might just be your favourite Bhansali film. Else, just go watch it for the leads. They are scorching hot and super talented. And that just might be reason enough.

  • Boss

    Yet another tribute to the escapist entertainers of yore? Ok then, this kind of lazy filmmaking deserves to be hit. With a scale.

  • John Day

    Logic, pace and tautness are the main ingredients of a thriller and Solomon’s work disappoints on all the three counts.
