  • Satyameva Jayate

    Heavy dialogue-heavy film. But you knew that from the trailer. Ordinary fight sequences make the film quite the regular action fare. The story isn’t as engaging as the premise might seem.

    Aug 2018
  • Gold

    Playing the “independence + partition” card with all its strength but ineffectively, there isn’t anything else too novel about the film.

    Aug 2018
  • Mulk

    An extremely gripping courtroom drama despite the standard and more or less predictable ups-downs-climax. Helped by rock-solid writing and performances.

    Aug 2018
  • Dhadak

    It’s like any other love story that struggles with familial approval. Since the approval is in focus, there is barely any attempt to convince you of the love. Here, the disapproval isn’t spine-chilling either.

    Jul 2018
  • Sanju

    An engaging 2.5+ hours with a film that might as well have been titled Sanju ke baba or anti-medianama. Enjoyed it better by not thinking of him as Sanjay Dutt but more as a shameless, callous, blame-shifter manbaby.

    Jun 2018
  • Race 3

    Fidget-spinner-led forced style, fight sequence in flowing skirt, flying Salman – Race 3 has it all. And of course, the Race brand of twists and turns are neither fun nor make any sense. Nothing unexpected, except for a touch of Baghbaan.

    Jun 2018
  • Parmanu

    An obviously over-simplified account of an extremely engaging real-life event. The real-life bit is what keeps you glued despite tacky execution.

    May 2018
  • Raazi

    A thriller that has your heart beating constantly for the protagonist’s safety is gripping because it is based on real life events and has strong performances.

    May 2018
  • Omerta

    Omertà is a work of intense, sweeping and frightening moral clarity. Unerring, unflinching and unrelenting, the result is a devastatingly, seriously good film.

  • 102 Not Out

    ...the movie is a weird mix of concepts, and social and philosophical messages. A little bit of Anand, a little bit of Baghbaan, a little bit of cringe at having named those two films in one line. It becomes as much about letting go, as it is about a parent-child relationship and leaves you bored with both.

    May 2018
  • Nanu Ki Jaanu

    Social messages in a ghost-romantic-comedy. Yes, that’s 4 genres in one sentence. And that’s not counting the many “Public Service Announcements” within those social messages. A bit much that alas adds to not much.

  • Beyond The Clouds

    ...is as harsh as it is kind and in that sense it follows life. If only the Iranian director had avoided drama especially through some of the performances and the background score. These took a toll on the subtlety that could have been.

  • Baaghi 2

    I am pleasantly surprised by the attempt at a detailed story. That, in the end, it all turns out to be rather ‘meh’ as expected, is another matter.

    Mar 2018
  • Hichki

    ...questions traditional methods of teaching while using traditional film-writing, sort-of missing its own point. Thankfully, it is engaging while it lasts.

    Mar 2018
  • Dil Juunglee

    A sincerely superficial film. Makes no attempt at making character motivations believable. A case of “believe it or leave it”. “Leave it”, it is then.

    Mar 2018
  • Pari

    This “Good vs. Evil vs. Evil” film is horrifying, terrifying, disgusting and repulsive in turns. Ugh. Guess that is what makes it a decent horror-thriller?

    Mar 2018
  • Aiyaary

    A decent thriller with a valid crux that could've engaged much better if it weren’t so slow. You’re left with too much time figure out the loopholes in the twists and turns.

    Feb 2018
  • Pad Man

    As much a story of tender care, as it is a story of social good and dealing with taboo. Worth a watch – for the avoidable struggle a common man went through because of the many social factors – even if not on the big screen.

    Feb 2018
  • Padmaavat

    An underwhelming fairy tale in characterization, narration and presentation. Not Bhansali’s visual best either. Yet, Padmaavat keeps you interested in Padmavati through 165 minutes, just not as interested as Khilji is in her.

    Jan 2018
  • Mukkabaaz

    Relentless, intense, relentlessly intense are all the words that come to you during interval. After that though, the film loses steam slightly because it gets a touch repetitive.

    Jan 2018
  • Kaalakaandi

    If you can watch a film just for performances, this one is it. Otherwise, it is two ordinary stories that go well enough with a madcap one. The quirky situations and lines bring a few smiles.
