Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 No Score Yet Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns (2013) Saheb Biwi aur Gangster Returns doesn't fully deliver the juicy thrill of the first film. But it should be seen for its characters and dialogue. These thoroughly nasty people are worth spending time with.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 No Score Yet Youngistaan (2014) The only bright spot is the late Farooq Sheikh, who brings his good-natured gravitas to this unintentional comedy. But for him, Youngistaan is brain-dead and largely insufferable.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 0% The Attacks Of 26/11 (2013) The Attacks of 26/11 is a powerful subject watered down by ineffective story-telling. This could have and should have been so much more.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 20% The Shaukeens (2014) I haven't seen the original but today, it's hard to find laughs in three lecherous old men sitting in a park and staring at women.‐ Hindustan Times

No Score Yet Ragini MMS 2 (2014) Insipid characters and sloppy writing make Ragini MMS 2 unintentionally funny. The movie offers nothing more than a few cheap thrills.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 83% Mary Kom (2014) What powers the film is a remarkable performance by Priyanka Chopra.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 20% Main Tera Hero (2014) Main Tera Hero is dumbed down by design. I have no issues with that. My problem is that the frenzied plot didn't deliver enough funny lines. ‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet London Dreams (2009) London Dreams is a frustratingly dim-witted drama about artistic passion, friendship and insecurity. The script, written by Suresh Nair, has the complexity of a cartoon. Moments of high drama are undermined by sheer silliness.‐ NDTV

No Score Yet Lakshmi (2014) I simply didn't want to be subjected to the ugliness anymore. Which is a shame because Lakshmi is heartfelt and has some fine performances by Monali, Kaushik and Shah. I can't wholeheartedly recommend Lakshmi. It's repulsive, yet demands to be seen.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Khiladi 786 (2012) After watching Khiladi 786 - close on the heels of that other mind-numbing action-comedy, Son of Sardaar - I think it's time for Bollywood to give Punjab a little rest.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 No Score Yet Kaalakaandi (2018) Kaalakaandi is trippy, cheerfully absurd and in places, laugh-out-loud funny.‐ Firstpost

3/5 No Score Yet Hawaa Hawaai (2014) While Hawaa Hawaai isn't entirely satisfying, I still recommend that you see it. It is a timely reminder of the intractable horrors that children in this country face on a daily basis.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 67% Hunterrr (2015) Hunterrr runs for 141 minutes and feels even longer. That's just way too much time to spend on the life and emotions of a lech.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 71% Guzaarish (2010) There is much to admire here: the film is beautifully shot by Sudeep Chatterjee. It has strong performances and there are several scenes which genuinely move you. But there is just as much that is clumsy.‐ NDTV

0/5 0% Great Grand Masti (2016) This might just be the most unwatchable Bollywood film of the year.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 No Score Yet Aashiqui 2 (2012) The film, however, never becomes more than the sum of its parts. Aashiqui 2 falls into that lukewarm category of 'I didn't mind it,' which is not the same as 'I liked it.' It could have been so much more.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 80% Gunday (2014) This film would be dead on arrival without the energy of the male leads - even when they are hamming, and they ham often, they are doing it with glorious style. Of the three stars for Gunday, one is for Ranveer and Arjun.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 No Score Yet Jolly LLB (2013) Jolly LLB is a feel-good satire in the best sense of the term.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 100% Filmistaan (2014) Filmistaan is a delightful film. It has heart, imagination and intelligence. It is a celebration of our enduring love affair with Hindi cinema. And it is a touching exploration of the shared humanity between Indians and Pakistanis.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 22% Dilwale (2015) Even in the context of Shetty's oeuvre, Dilwale is a low. It made me nostalgic for Chennai Express.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 No Score Yet Fukrey (2013) There is enough pep in Fukrey to make it pleasantly diverting. I'm not suggesting that you drop everything and get to the theatre. But if you happen to stroll in, you are likely to come out smiling.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 40% Daawat-e-Ishq (2014) Daawat-e-Ishq is the equivalent of an elaborate meal that begins with a mouth-watering appetiser but slowly loses flavour, aroma and deliciousness.‐ Hindustan Times

No Score Yet Creature (2014) What is a brahmarakshas? According to Creature 3D, it's a cross between a lizard and a dinosaur, with a splash of Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean thrown in. It is also one of the many reasons why this is one of those supremely foolish films.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 100% Budhia Singh: Born To Run (2016) Budhia Singh's story stays with you. The anguish is authentic. Which makes the film worth your time.‐ Hindustan Times

No Score Yet Kyun...! Ho Gaya Na (2004) Karnik is a fine technician who has taken care to dress each frame. What rankles is what might have been.‐ India Today

2.5/5 67% Dil Bole Hadippa! (My Heart Goes Hooray!) (2009) Dil Bole Hadippa is worth seeing for the sweetness and charm that Rani Mukherjee and Shahid Kapur conjure up.‐ NDTV

1/5 0% Teraa Surroor (2016) Himesh [Reshammiya] and director Shawn Arranha really let me down.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 0% Runningshaadi.com (2017) Sadly, this one has too few laughs and not enough meat.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 50% Kung-Fu Yoga (2017) Once in a while I see a film that is hypnotic in its awfulness; which means it's so bad that you can't look away. Kung Fu Yoga is one such film.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 70% Kaabil (2017) Kaabil is a B-grade genre film elevated by the blazing talent of its lead player -- Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik invests so much sweat and sincerity in this slim story that he forces us to stay invested in it.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 70% Raees (2017) This is an uneven film. In places, you will applaud and whistle. But you might also find yourself utterly exhausted.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 43% OK Jaanu (2017) OK Jaanu isn't a bad film. It's just a pointless one. Because an exact -- and I mean frame-for-frame -- version already exists in Tamil.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 38% Naam Hai Akira (2016) The curse of the second half strikes so badly in this film that it almost completely negates the first half.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 100% Kahaani 2 (2016) Editor Namrata Rao keeps the pace breathless -- there isn't a wasted frame or moment.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 38% Befikre (2016) I'm thrilled to report that with Befikre, Aditya Chopra reinvents himself. And in doing so, he gives Bollywood romance a buoyancy and exhilaration.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 75% M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) Neeraj Pandey's telling of Dhoni's life is in equal parts, thrilling, moving and utterly exhausting.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 80% Khoobsurat (2014) Khoobsurat is sweet, benign, and bland.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 88% Dolly Ki Doli (2015) Writer-director Abhishek Dogra and co-writer Umashankar Singh take a somewhat silly story, add crackling dialogue and sharp characters, and serve up dollops of laughs.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 0% Roy (2014) Painfully affected and spectacularly tedious.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 50% Sulemani Keeda (2014) The set-up and characters are promising but Sulemani Keeda never becomes more than the sum of its parts because it's too thin.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 No Score Yet Cocktail (2012) Cocktail is a fun, romantic romp.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 100% Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) Bajrangi Bhaijaan is simplistic, occasionally silly, and tiringly over-stretched. It's also unashamedly manipulative. But it works.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Heropanti (2014) The disjointed narrative brims with low-IQ high-testosterone men brandishing weapons. The women are puppets who either simper or scream.‐ Hindustan Times

No Score Yet Ankhon Dekhi (2014) Ankhon Dekhi is a delicate and delightful film about invisible people -- those ordinary folk you pass on the street but rarely pay attention to. Writer-director Rajat Kapoor finds beauty and richness in their lives.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 100% Aligarh (2016) Aligarh isn't just a fine film. It's also important, necessary and timely. It will shift something inside you.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 100% Pink (2016) Pink is a powerful film that deserves to be seen. Make time for it.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 60% Ghayal Once Again (2016) It's an old-fashioned fight between good and evil but what makes it gripping is the determination and earnestness that Sunny Deol brings to it.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 40% Jai Gangaajal (2016) Ultimately, Jai Gangaajal is too familiar to be engaging or essential.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 13% Ki & Ka (2016) One of the enduring problems with Balki's films persists -- his crackling concept runs out of steam. It's almost as if he spends so much of his creative energy coming up with the high-wire idea that he has none left to flesh out the narrative around it.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 43% Sarbjit (2016) From this solid material, director Omung Kumar fashions a film that is structurally clumsy and overtly high-pitched but also strongly enacted and genuinely moving.‐ Hindustan Times
