Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 83% Fan (2016) A little more restraint in maintaining the tonal consistency would have resulted in a much darker and satisfying cautionary tale about the perils of fame and blind love. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 40% Delhi 6 (2009) Mehra's follow-up to his Bafta-nominated Rang de Basanti is another gritty slice of political Bollywood cinema. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Neerja (2016) A rewarding and emotional watch. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 14, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Sarbjit (2016) Sarbjit is at times genuinely moving and features a family reunion sequence that will reduce you to tears. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 71% Raavanan (Villain) (2010) Raavan is ravishingly good. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 14, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Karthik Calling Karthik (K.C.K.) (2010) Akhtar's little-boy-lost vulnerable charm holds it all together. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 93% PK (2014) The performances are pitch perfect, with A-lister Khan proving yet again that he's the most versatile and intelligent Indian actor of his generation. The result is probably the best mainstream Hindi film of 2014. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 16, 2016
3/5 57% Bajirao Mastani (2015) The physical beauty and real acting talent of the three leads rises this to just above sud-level. Its central message that 'all religions preach love, but love has no religion' is to be commended, especially since it is still so pertinent to India today. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 16, 2016
3/5 33% Sarkar Raj (2008) Proves firmly that Bollywood can hold its own technically against its Western counterparts. ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Jul 5, 2016
4/5 73% Don 2 (2011) It's a slick journey across Thailand, Malaysia, Switzerland and Germany which even manages to refer to the current Euro crisis. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 12, 2015
100% Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) It largely succeeds due to its charismatic, handsome leads and a cracking 'Spanglish' soundtrack. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 11, 2015
4/5 80% Talaash (2012) Performances are uniformly impressive, with Khan proving again that he is the finest actor of his generation. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 5, 2015
4/5 100% Three Idiots (2009) This quirky well-acted film proves, as the title track says, that generally 'all is well' with commercial Hindi cinema. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 4, 2015
2/5 67% Rowdy Rathore (2012) Forgettable fun. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 22, 2015
3/5 91% Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012) A sumptuous if rather soulless love story. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 20, 2015
3/5 100% Haider (2014) The result is a tense, well crafted drama that lacks the deep emotional intensity required in its disturbed characters. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 15, 2015
3/5 63% Happy New Year (2014) Bollywood's big Diwali release is an unashamedly overblown, three-hour masala movie which largely succeeds in its unambitious aim of providing mindless entertainment. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 11, 2015
1/5 No Score Yet Game (2011) The only interesting aspect of this slick and superficial film is Bollywod's continued ability to waste rupees on expensive foreign location shooting instead of hiring a half-decent scriptwriter or sending its beautiful leads to acting school. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 22, 2013
1/5 No Score Yet Joker 3D (2012) If you find the idea of an alien landing in India and boogying with pelvic thrusts to saucy songs funny, this is for you. Otherwise, it's a joke of a film. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 22, 2013
3/5 61% Ra. One (2011) 'King Khan' holds it all together. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 22, 2013
3/5 50% Agent Vinod (2012) Ultimately forgettable, but overall it is efficient, entertaining and good-looking escapism. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 22, 2013
2/5 40% The Bodyguard (Kaavalan) (2011) Forget the plot, this is a shameless showcase for its ageing, A-list lead. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 12, 2012
1/5 No Score Yet Housefull 2: The Dirty Dozen (2012) Bollywood assaults our sensibilities again with yet another seriously embarrassing sequel. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 12, 2012
4/5 83% EK MAIN AIR EKK TU (2012) The leads are charming and the dialogue has a knowing wit. ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 16, 2012
No Score Yet Awaara (The Tramp) (The Vagabond) (1951) It remains a landmark film responsible for establishing Bollywood's early global presence. ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 2, 2012
3/5 80% Aarakshan (2011) It is marred by the usual bolly-excesses: an inordinate length, unnecessary songs and the miscasting of real-life royal-blood Khan as a 'dalit' (untouchable). Well acted, though. ‐ Time Out
Posted Dec 30, 2011
4/5 100% Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (2008) Kohli's unsentimental direction results in a magical technically-polished universal crowd-pleaser which can rival any recent Disney fantasy. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 17, 2011
3/5 82% My Name Is Khan (2010) Technically accomplished, it's always engaging due to the credible performances from its beautiful leads, the charismatic Khan and Kajol. Worthy, but flawed. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 29, 2010
4/5 77% Jodhaa Akbar (2008) What follows is a three- and-a-half-hour journey back in time to a bygone era, well worth a visit. ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Oct 18, 2008
4/5 73% Om Shanti Om (2007) Once you decide to suspend all belief in logic from the preposterous proceedings, there is much to enjoy in this witty and inventive camp entertainer. ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Nov 24, 2007
2/6 33% Marigold (2007) This fluffy cross-cultural experiment smacks of jumping on the Bollywood bandwagon with little insight into the genre it is trying to emulate or understanding of the country in which it's set. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 17, 2007
40% Gandhi, My Father (2007) Moving, credible and tragic. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 1, 2007
4/5 No Score Yet Cheeni Kum (2007) The mood is light, the acting generally subtle and the gentle jibes at traditional Indian mores outweigh some of the implausible edges in the script. ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Jun 2, 2007
29% Provoked (2007) It's a low-key message movie, but it still packs a punch. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 5, 2007
4/5 90% Guru (2007) It is certainly one of the best Bollywood movies you will see in 2007. ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Feb 5, 2007
18% After the Sunset (2004) Audiences seeking mild diversion might prefer approaching it as Lola does her new surroundings: 'The challenge is to find joy in simple things'. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
100% Veer-Zaara (2004) Go see and get swept away in this festal melange of colour, sights and sounds. ‐ Time Out
