No Score Yet Lekar Hum Deewana Dil (2014) Deeksha has a pleasant screen presence and one will like to see her in a more rounded part before passing judgment but Armaan has to do a lot to take the attention away.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Kaun Kitney Paani Mein (2015) Delivering one of his best performances, Shukla as the cunning king who reveals his insecurities after a couple of pegs, becomes the pivot around whom the film revolves...it is a film that needs to be discussed and debated.‐ The Hindu

50% Paa (2009) Characters don't make a film. Smart lines are not enough to keep you hooked all through. They have to be knitted in an engaging screenplay. Here Balki falter.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Gulaal (2009) Watch Gulaal for a director breaking free from clichés of mainstream cinema. Watch Gulaal to know the unholy ways of our political setup.‐ The Hindu

56% Shaadi Ke Side Effects (2014) Apart from conjuring up funny moments around seemingly serious issues, Saket's storytelling keeps you engaged even when you know the obstacles on the way are not entirely novel. ‐ The Hindu

83% Sholay (1975) Take a ticket to Ramgarh, there is still a lot to explore in the rocky terrain with a throbbing heart.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
87% Gone Girl (2014) An insightful story about a dysfunctional marriage, Gone Girl is a suspense drama that looks you in the eye and makes you fret about what we and modern day relationships have become.‐ The Hindu

38% Phantom (2015) The way Kabir and his writers build up the narrative is dull and tedious and with no humour to spice up the mood, the spy games fail to spur the imagination.‐ The Hindu

91% Birdman (2014) Alejandro Inarritu crafts yet another masterpiece on the futility of interpretations, on the hollowness of labels and the duality of life.‐ The Hindu

Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2015
No Score Yet Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) Of course the characters are exaggerated figures to suit the comic tone but they emanate from reality and perhaps that's why there is instant connection. Like the characters, there is not much beneath the surface.‐ The Hindu

56% Jazbaa (2015) Things do improve in the second half and the big reveal is nicely wrapped deep into the narrative but by then one has little Jazbaa left to back this lacklustre exercise.‐ The Hindu

83% The Walk (2015) When you remove the flesh and come down to the wire, you realise that the director is smitten by CGI imagery. No crime, but it makes the work of an artist, who always maintained that he is not a circus clown, a little gimmicky.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2015
73% Black Mass (2015) Cooper shows restraint. He doesn't go for the overkill and lets the narrative and characters evolve in an ambiance that is true to the disco-era of the late 70s and 80s.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2015
48% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) Stewart looks the part but the way she goes about the business and the way the screenplay pans out it is too generic to unsettle you.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2015
91% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) A film that the fans of the genre will like to revisit.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2015

Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2015
14% All Is Well (2015) One doesn't have a problem with loud humour provided the punchlines are potent and they serve the purpose of the script. Here Shukla has taken slapstick quite literally as he punches us numb.‐ The Hindu

50% Brothers (2015) An old school potboiler where self-sacrificing mother is the cause of fire, Brothers simmers with emotion and action in a new shiny pan.‐ The Hindu

59% Run All Night (2015) When it boils down to how two fathers are fighting their past to salvage their future, the caricaturish feel gives way to something substantial and tangible.‐ The Hindu
