  • Saina

    Biopics have simple and unbroken rules of following the template that has been set by multiple real-life stories before. Some have been dumbed down, some have been remarkably real. Amole Gupte’s Saina tilts slightly towards the former, and the filmmaker puts the dumbing down to good use.

  • Love Aaj Kal

    ...may not be accepted or embraced with open arms, the way we have other films of the same genre, this one will have either solid or scathing reactions, since we all define love differently.

  • Malang

    ...what could have been a delicious thriller turns out to be merely a watchable and forgettable revenge-drama...

  • Street Dancer 3D

    Why are filmmakers so severely obsessed with stuffing their films with gratuitous melodrama and messaging when they already have enough material on display?

  • Panga

    ...has the same histrionics films of such nature are known for- Parental conflict, sacrifices, heroic montages, training sequences, and ultimate triumph. But despite all the ingredients, the film is fueled by sharp writing by Tiwari and Nikhil Mehrotra, boisterous dialogues and above all

  • Tanhaji

    This isn't a perfect film, drags its feet at certain places, but coming from the bland battle of Panipat just a month ago, this clash between the Marathas and the Mughals would any day be a better option!

    ...this is precisely what the makers wished to do, throw everything to the audience, from romance to comedy to drama and package their creation as wholesome entertainment. Good Newwz wishes to achieve that.

    ...makes the right points and selects a burning issue, but it could've been less in-your-face and more restrained.

  • Panipat

    As much as you want to admire the craft, you cannot deny this could have been a far more rousing portrayal of one of history's most fascinating and frightening chapters, had it been with better performers.

    Actors participating in such comedies usually say in interviews and write on social media how their films are not for critics and request the audiences to leave their brains at home. I did exactly that, didn't apply any logic or brain, all I desired was laughter... where's that? Whom should I talk to now?

    If the makers think running gags about pigeon and pig poop are funny, they all may have graduated from the Sajid Khan school of filmmaking, the master of puerile and asinine humour.

  • The Zoya Factor

    The film has a winning premise, just like the book it has been inspired by, Anuja Chauhan's The Zoya Factor, but Abhishek Sharma and Chauhan herself, fail to give the same magic and madness to the adaptation.
