  • Mumbai Saga

    If only the director had chosen to up his game further (and trusted today’s audience a little more) instead of turning back to a formula that has worked for him in the past, Mumbai Saga could have been a film worth returning to theatres for; all safety precautions considered.

  • Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

    ...the film remains watchable throughout, despite all its shaky foundation, precisely because it gives us an experience we rarely see in Indian cinema. It is stylish and cool and silly all at once, which does work in its favour as well.

  • Veere Di Wedding

    It’s strange that filmmakers take some risk when mounting a film like Veere Di Wedding, and then don’t back it with sensible writing all the way through, trusting the audience to understand a modicum of nuance and subtlety.

  • Katiyabaaz

    Insightful, scathing and even a tad bit depressing at times, the film is crisp and thoroughly entertaining, but with also a rather pertinent point to it all.

  • Kaanchi

    With gratingly bad performances and a poorly written script that doesn't quite know what to do with its noble intentions, the film's greatest redeeming quality is that it ends.

  • 2 States

    ...provides instant gratification primarily because of a charming lead cast and an excellent supporting cast that rises above the rather tame writing.

  • Bhoothnath Returns

    Though it is a tad too naïve and preachy, and a little too long for it's own good, the film attempts to make a point that a number of us can learn from; it is a well-acted film with some genuine moments.

  • Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

    ...the kind of film you wouldn’t mind watching despite the fact that there isn’t much in the film that is memorable. With a cast that will win your heart and music that’ll play on loop in your head for a while after, the film is fun but rarely much more.

  • Harud

    One of the most visually impactful films in recent times, Harud may not be palatable to all primarily because of its pace. But the sheer power of the manner in which Kashmir has been captured on celluloid will make it worth a watch for many.
