  • Mulk

    ...is the sort of film that sheds light on all that is wrong with India. It can only be hoped that a dramatisation of real events makes people sit up and think about altering attitudes and doing away with prejudices that are governed by fear and a lack of basic understanding.

  • Soorma

    Here is one of the best stories celebrating will, talent and love for the game. But did you do it against Pakistan? No? Please close the door on your way out. Next candidate please.

  • Sanju

    While the subject is starkly different, Hirani's sticks to the treatment that comes naturally to him. This is a film that is intensely Bollywood and in love with the industry, the approach is a strange concoction of melodrama, parody and comedy.

  • Daas Dev

    Sudhir Mishra’s latest film has a title that wants to scream at you its creativity — or lack thereof — but ends up with an indiscernible, squeaked out nonsense.

  • Dil Juunglee

    At every turn, Dil Juunglee (written by Tonoya Sen Sharma and Shiv Singh) teases you that now it will change into some other film, but it is relentless in its mission to disappoint.

  • Mukkabaaz

    It may appear as a sports film, a boxing film, but Mukkabaaz really is an intense relationship drama, a romance — almost a quasi-Romeo-Juliet — that will not bow down to disability or politics or caste.

  • Noor

    A compelling micro story about a single character loses its essence by trying to be a macro story about Mumbai, journalism and other words thrown at you with sincerity reserved for banal platitudes.

  • Begum Jaan

    There is nothing even Vidya Balan can do to make things interesting here when that happens. And we never get to know enough about the characters to identify with their sense of loss and longing.

  • Phillauri

    ...definitely deserved a better director. Scenes take too long to get to their logical end. A lot about ones like or dislike of Phillauri may depend on how much one is willing to buy into Dutt's two narratives, bad graphics notwithstanding.

  • Machine

    There is bad. There is awful. And then there is a film where your eyeballs are behind your eyebrows threatening to launch from top of your head like it's Cape Canaveral.

  • Commando 2

    Very little thought seems to have gone into Commando 2 in every facet which is commendable because at least that makes it consistent with the idea and execution of demonetization.

  • Befikre

    Unfortunately, it is Aditya’s stories that cannot shape shift to fit into post — Dil Chahta Hai, post-Imtiaz Ali, post-Shakun Batra grammar of Bollywood.
