  • The Tashkent Files

    ...the storytelling effort is half-baked and lacks the finesse that such a heavy-duty film requires. It also doesn’t help that the final slide of the movie tells the audience that the authenticity of all the facts displayed in the film cannot be verified.

  • Paharganj

    ...it turns out to be one of those films that has a lot to say but ends up focusing on just one aspect of the plot line, which in this case, happens to be Laura’s quest to find Robert. And that’s not an enthralling expedition for people to embark on, especially on a weekend.

  • Notebook

    ...is an easy watch where you can appreciate the humour, drama and romance. But the film leaves you wanting for more. Perhaps with more creativity in writing, this young romantic saga could have achieved more.

  • Kesari

    With technical brilliance, intricate writing and thundering performances, Kesari is a loud war cry that evokes strong feelings of patriotism and it also wrenches your heart with its climactic tragedy.

  • Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

    There’s no forced humour or slapstick, just weird thoughts and weirder execution. The film is made in a certain space and once you surrender yourself to it, it’s an outrageous journey that you won’t regret taking.

    ...ends up becoming a goulash of commercial fare. The effort to entertain and be dramatic shows and that’s never a good sign for a film celebrating the love of cinema.

  • Hamid

    ...it shows what art is here for; to pose tough questions and to show a mirror to society. So, if you need a reality check and want to know just what millions of Kashmiris go through each day, go and watch this wonderful little film in theatres.

  • Photograph

    ...isn’t a perfect shot and is lured by exquisite nothingness but it’s intriguing and takes you back in time. Like love and life, it’s uncertain and hopeful.

  • Badla

    The predictability of the screenplay dampens the thrills occasionally, also the climactic twist requires a healthy dose of suspense of disbelief. But, even the seasoned genre faithfuls will agree that Badla offers a creative and thrilling end to a captivating mystery.

  • Total Dhamaal

    Given the ensemble cast, this film had the potential to be a comic roller coaster ride. However, the fact that the film is slapstick is not a problem, what brings it down is poor writing and execution.

  • Hum Chaar

    Given that the film has released during the valentine’s week, it may pique interests of young, college-going students. However, they should realise that their own lives, however dull, will seem more interesting and entertaining when compared with these characters.

  • Gully Boy

    The problem with the film though is it’s length, which stretches to two-and-a-half hours, but the emotional deftness and clap-worth dialogues add the right amount of gusto and keep you totally engaged. This is a film that deserves an encore.

  • Amavas

    While the effects are slick and the ghosts match up to international standards, they cannot save this film from turning into a painful two-hour-long watch.

    Feb 2019
  • Thackeray

    The riled up speeches, the unapologetic candour and the larger-than-life persona is presented without a veil. While the honesty is commendable, it comes across that the lead character’s political motivations lack clarity. Perhaps a more seasoned writer could have fleshed out Thackeray’s character and eccentricities a lot better.

  • Manikarnika

    ...is a well-made film that highlights Kangana’s prowess as an actor. For a first time filmmaker, she undoubtedly shows spark and potential as a storyteller.
