Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/5 43% Helicopter Eela (2018) This film doesn't feel modern. It feels dated and shallow‐ Film Companion Reviews

4/5 93% Tumbbad (2018) I left the theatre with images swirling in my head and a few questions that the film doesn't answer. Which is not a bad thing.‐ Film Companion Reviews

2/5 31% Venom (2018) Venom is a soulless movie in which slimy creatures are trying to find host bodies.‐ Film Companion Reviews

3.5/5 100% Andhadhun (2018) There's murder, betrayal, sex and a mountain of lies. In short, you can't look away. But as it happens too often in Hindi cinema, the energy takes a beating post-interval. ‐ Film Companion Reviews

2/5 33% Loveyatri (2018) The most mystifying part of LoveYatri is Aayush's hair, which rises a good three to four inches above his head. At one point, I wondered - what does it take to keep that up? Yes, this is that sort of film.‐ Film Companion Reviews

2/5 50% Pataakha (2018) It's cacophony without juice or magic.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
3/5 86% Sui Dhaaga: Made in India (2018) Anushka Sharma, grappling with an under-written character, is solid. And they are supported by Raghubir Yadav, brilliant as the father who weeps while watching daily soaps and Yamini Dass, who steals the show as Mauji's mother.‐ Film Companion Reviews

3/5 83% Love Sonia (2017) The plot feels like it is designed to reflect newspaper headlines and everything gets resolved so easily that it seems implausible. But Sonia's tortured face will haunt you.‐ Film Companion Reviews

3.5/5 80% Husband Material (Manmarziyaan) (2018) Like love, this film is messy and flawed and glorious. You have to sign up for all of it. ‐ Film Companion Reviews

2/5 33% Paltan (2018) Paltan is leaden and one-dimensional. ‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
3.5/5 100% Trapped (2017) Trapped is a tight-wire act, which would collapse without the masterful Rajkummar Rao.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
3/5 86% Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) Bareilly Ki Barfi has enough flavour to keep you going. Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari keeps it frothy and light. I exited the theatre hoping that she'll give Pritam Vidrohi his own film.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
3.5/5 60% Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (Shubh Mangal Savdhan) (2017) Bhumi Pednekar has established herself as the go-to actor to play the extraordinary ordinary woman.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
No Score Yet Anaarkali Of Aarah (2017) The film's plot was a little contrived but Pankaj Tripathi's unassuming presence, Swara Bhaskar's brilliant performance as Anaarkali and the thundering climax made it one of my favourites.‐ Film Companion Reviews

91% Lipstick Under My Burkha (2016) This story of four ordinary women who seek small joys was buoyed by wonderful performances - especially by Ratna Pathak Shah.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
4/5 88% A Death in the Gunj (2016) This film will seep into your skin. Hours later, I was thinking about Shutu and his scars, including the ones he leaves behind.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
4/5 91% Newton (2017) Newton's fight against the system was searing and memorable.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
4/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) The Shape of Water is visionary filmmaking.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
2/5 29% Aiyaary (2018) Sidharth struggles to find flesh on his poorly written character.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
4/5 No Score Yet Black Mirror At The National Gallery (2011) Black Panther speaks to the traumatic history of a continent but it also challenges every perception you might have about Africa and its people. And Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole give you enough besides politics to chew on.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
1.5/5 43% Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) The laughs can't compensate for the lack of logic, which only gets worse in the second half.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
3.5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) ...tragic, comic, violent, tender and heartbreaking.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
1/5 No Score Yet Welcome to New York (2018) Welcome to New York doesn't feel like a film. It plays out more like an extended skit or a school play.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
2/5 50% Pari (2018) Pari asks the big question - are human beings in fact the biggest monsters? I say the biggest horror is a lame script.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
2.5/5 67% 3 Storeys (2018) This isn't a film that lacks ambition but it never becomes one that is essential.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
4/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Lady Bird combines wisdom and tenderness, humor and grace. It's light-footed without being lightweight. And it captures, with great feeling, the turbulence of a girl growing up. I can't recommend it enough.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
3/5 67% Raid (2018) In its textures, Raid aims for a gritty realism but the characters are painted in broad strokes. Eventually the punch is predictable but after a few stumbles, it does land.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
1.5/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) I'm not sure even fans will find this industrial-strength head-banger entertaining. The best thing is that Pacific Rim: Uprising is under two hours though I have to warn you - it feels much longer.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
3.5/5 78% Stree (2018) With laughs and scares, Stree delivers an important message.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
1/5 17% Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se (2018) Among the three of them, the Deols have over 100 years of making movies. I think it's time to reinvent.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
2.5/5 60% Blackmail (2018) Abhinay Deo clearly has a keen eye for the darkness and absurdity of daily life but Blackmail isn't sparkling enough to sustain interest.‐ Film Companion Reviews

2.5/5 No Score Yet Blackmail (2017) Abhinay clearly has a keen eye for the darkness and absurdity of daily life but Blackmail isn't sparkling enough to sustain interest.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
No Score Yet Chupke Chupke (1975) Hrishi da's cinema brims with wit, charm and an inherent decency. Chupke Chupke is no exception. There is a real sense of fun here, much of it provided by Dharmendra who is in top form.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
2/5 33% Baaghi (2016) Baaghi will best serve people who are interested in moves rather than movies.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
2.5/5 29% Baaghi 2 (2018) This balance between punches and plot derails in the second half. As the body count mounts, the film's hold loosens. As does the logic keeping the narrative together. When all is revealed, too many questions remain.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
2.5/5 57% Hichki (2018) Hichki is a genuinely earnest film made with heart. But it doesn't take enough risks and consequently doesn't touch a raw nerve.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
No Score Yet The Machine Age (Kalyug) (1981) Kalyug was made by a dream team.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
3/5 65% Beyond the Clouds (2018) The move isn't wholly satisfying but there is enough to savor here.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
3.5/5 89% October (2018) October isn't predictable. The film stays true to its tonality. Shoojit and Juhi remain uncompromising and committed to creating a film that has textures like gossamer.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
1.5/5 52% Rampage (2018) Rampage veers between exhausting action sequences and eye-glazing exposition.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Missing (2018) Somewhere, buried in this wreck is a satisfying suspense thriller. But it never emerges.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
96% Some Like It Hot (1959) Some Like It Hot was released in 1959 but its effervescence and sparkle are timeless. I guarantee that it will make you laugh out loud. ‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
3/5 67% 102 Not Out (2018) 102 Not Out is uneven but heartfelt. Despite the flaws, the emotions connect. And if like me, you are of a certain vintage, you will get a nostalgic head-rush when you see Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan in the same frame.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
3/5 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Infinity War didn't wear me down in the way that Age of Ultron did, it didn't give me the high of the first Avengers either. Like I said, manage expectations and you'll be just fine.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
2/5 33% Daas Dev (2018) Daas Dev is meant to be a study of power and what happens to those who lust for it. It's a solid idea lost in execution.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
1/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) What could have been twisted and juicy is just a crashing bore.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
3/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) If you like your cinema understated and refined, then this is not for you. But for the rest of us, there's enough to enjoy here.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
2.5/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) What's onscreen simply isn't magical enough. It might please die-hard fans to know how Han got the last name or how he made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs...But I think even they might be disappointed.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
3/5 50% Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran (2018) Sharma unashamedly plays the patriotic card. Without apology, he yanks our heartstrings and evokes a rush of pride.‐ Film Companion Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
85% As Good as It Gets (1997) This is the stuff of formula but director James L. Brooks and co-writer Mark Andrus elevate it with terrific writing. ‐ Film Companion Reviews
