  • AK vs AK

    For grabbing and holding on to our attention even as the phone buzzes with Twitter and Facebook notifications next to us, and making us chuckle at every filmi reference...

  • Love Aaj Kal

    To see that Sara and even Kartik, who hasn't really cemented his foot as an actor but clearly wants to, have surrendered themselves to Imtiaz Ali, and then ended up with a poorly written script, limited characterisation and sub-par direction, is heartbreaking.

  • Panga

    A bit of willing suspension of disbelief, a lot of that feel-good factor that comes from watching an underdog win, Panga delivers the highs wonderfully.

  • Dabangg 3

    Some films are experiences, and therefore, shouldn't be restricted with star ratings, or discussions about the film's merit. A Salman Khan film, in this context, is a rollercoaster ride. You buy a ticket, stand in line, take your seat, buckle yourself up, and pray to the almighty that you don't puke on thy neighbour.

    Ashutosh Gowariker may not be able to do grandeur like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but he can do war. Yet, a lacklustre cinematography and terrible CGI mars this solid attempt. It would have worked 10 years ago.

    If only the makers had spent more time on developing this speck of story, rather than those elaborate, yet ineffective song-and-dance sequences.

  • Laal Kaptaan

    ...Laal Kaptaan's biggest flaw is that it is too heavily dependent on Saif, but doesn't offer the necessary support for him to pull it through. Ultimately, it remains a film that had all the right ingredients but is still under-cooked.

  • The Sky Is Pink

    ...is precariously balanced between being overdramatic and overtly subtle - like Shoojit Sircar's October was overtly subtle. It leaves you with a lingering afterthought, I'm afraid most will not get.
