  • Nail Polish

    The biggest triumph of this court piece, written and directed by 'Bugs' Bhargav Krishna, is its subtlety. The distractions have been kept so low that it enhances the quality of the content.

  • Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi

    Simple gestures make for an enjoyable viewing and this is the reason why when not all the characters are fleshed out well and the film comes to an abrupt end, you end up feeling that this is a film that could have been so much better.

  • AK vs AK

  • Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

    ...amasses a clutter of complicated issues and sometimes comes across as more messy than meaningful. But the delightful cast, utterly natural in their confusion as well as revolt, compelled me to cheer for its easily resolved conflicts even if deep down I wondered at the possibility of such extraordinarily ideal understanding.

    ...there could not have been a better timing for a story that tells us what happens when religion becomes the sole criterion to determine who belongs where.

  • Malang

    Here's a witless thriller so far removed from reality yet so consumed by its own self-seriousness, no amount of slick photography (Vikas Sivaraman), soaring soundtrack (Mithoon, Ved Sharma) or steady supply of conspiracy (Aseem Arrora) can salvage its tepid material.

  • Panga

    What it lacks in depth or surprise, Panga's slice of life makes up for in its gentle depiction of everyday struggles and pleasantries, lending it a consistently warm fuzzy feeling.

  • Chhapaak

    Meghna Gulzar documents Chhapaak's grim reality barefacedly without losing sight of its character's quiet determination to fight the reasons that make such heinous crimes possible in the first place.
