  • Pranaam

    In a different world, where the 80s era of long water-splashing shots and folks crying their hearts out for their kids' well-being at temples is still a hit, 'Pranaam' would have worked, and in a massive way. But this world is flawed, and so is this crime drama.

  • Jabariya Jodi

    ...starts on a promising note, but loses steam along the way. It tries to throw light on serious issues with lighter moments, but gets tangled in a melodramatic and unrealistic narrative that doesn’t feel all that jabardust.

  • Judgemental Hai Kya

    The film pushes the envelope as a dark, psychological whodunit, with a social message weaved in that can’t be ignored. The film treads into a zone where Bollywood has rarely been, and just for that, it deserves applause.

  • Family Of Thakurganj

    With a decent concept at hand, had the director focused on keeping the story tight, it could have engaged the viewers. The film’s length is problematic, even the humour and the one-liners don’t help in keeping the film afloat.

  • Super 30

    ...is a human drama and the story of a teacher who triumphs over the many challenges that life throws at him, to set an example for the world to see. Just for that it’s worth a watch.

  • Malaal

    ...is a simmering love story that sucks you into its world. While it may not have the grandeur and lavish scale usually mounted in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali production the mood and ambience created by director Mangesh Hadawale captures the bustle and flavor of a Mumbai chawl beautifully.

  • Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna

    ...is a few decades too late, as it reminds you of the era when Bollywood romanticised tales of creepily obsessive lovers. The climax, too, falls flat and the film offers nothing that you have not seen before in this genre.

  • Marudhar Express

    ...is an insipid amalgamation of multiple coming-of-age films weaved into one, but sans Roy Kapur’s personable screen presence, this life saga is one journey you wouldn’t regret not embarking on.

  • Kabir Singh

    While Kabir Singh is a welcome change from stereotypical love stories, this kind of love affair needs some getting used to. Through his protagonist, Sandeep bets all his cards on his leading man, making sure you either love him or hate him, but you can’t ignore him.

  • Bharat

    ...is well-intentioned, entertaining and doesn’t succumb to the trappings of commercial potboilers. The fact that it tries a bit too hard to prove that, is its problem.

  • India‘s Most Wanted

    It’s commendable how Raj Kumar Gupta doesn’t fall for the staples — needless songs, glamorous female character and jingoism. IMW is an earnest ode to the unsung heroes of our country — a story that deserves to be heard.

  • PM Narendra Modi

    Whether you believe or don’t believe in the political philosophy of Narendra Modi is secondary, as a film, this one is too lopsided for you to appreciate. It leaves a lot unanswered. While it firmly believes ‘Modi ek insaan nahi, soch hai’, we wish the script was as thoughtful.

  • De De Pyaar De

    The film maturely handles a few touchy topics like divorce, live-ins and age-inappropriate romance, without getting too overbearing. Thankfully, director Akiv Ali wraps it up with a slightly unpredictable climax minus the melodrama.

  • Student Of The Year 2

    ...this chapter doesn’t have much of that ishq wala love, but there is ample dosti, kabaddi and cool stuff to keep you going. Think of it as a much snazzier version of ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander’ minus the realism.

  • Setters

    A thriller devoid of any sort of pressure, falls flat and thus feels never ending. Solid writing would have done wonders for a film like this that had the potential to be gripping.
