  • Shikara

    ...is a film on the plight of Kashmiri Pandits made with the right amount of sensibility and compassion. While it touches hearts in many parts, it also compels you to question if everything was clearly black and white with no shades of grey.

  • Tanhaji

    By showing a human being with extraordinary capabilities by exaggerating his qualities, to the point of making him unbelievably superhuman, the makers lose an opportunity. They end up turning this historical hero into a fictional creation and not a flesh-and-blood person who can inspire the upcoming generations.

  • Bala

    ...is not just a celebration of Bollywood but also its critique, which questions the stereotypes set by our cinema about beauty. The film exudes a feel-good warmth you were waiting for, for so long.

  • Ujda Chaman

    The film mainly lacks in the writing department. It could have been a fun, slice-of-life film which could have brought a serious issue into general discourse, but loose writing makes it rather bland.

  • Saand Ki Aankh

    ...is a pleasant family watch for the Diwali weekend. Take your main women along. If possible, add your khadoos taus and uncles of your family to that list, to show them the mirror in an indirect way.
