Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
20% Besharam (2013) Mrs Kapoor sums up the whole affair quite nicely. Enough, Ranbir, she seems to be saying. Especially since you're capable of so much more.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 60% Simran (2017) Kangana Ranaut is one among a tiny percentage of Bollywood actresses who can carry a film on their own.‐ The National (UAE)

50% Babumoshai Bandookbaaz (2016) Snide yet warm, merciless yet loyal, misled but true to his instinct, Babu makes you root for him, even as he remains the sole cause of all the destruction swirling around him.‐ The National (UAE)

3.5/5 33% Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017) [Toilet] cleverly channels all the usual Hindi cinema tropes - song, dance, action, melodrama.‐ The National (UAE)

2.5/5 17% Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017) In the end, Jab Harry Met Sejal will quite possibly be declared a hit, even if it's nothing to write home about, simply because SRK stars in it.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 90% Dear Zindagi (2016) Maybe this is the year Shah Rukh Khan starts to reinvent himself. Maybe he'll do fewer masala films and take on projects such as Dear Zindagi instead, because he absolutely shines.‐ The National (UAE)

2.5/5 17% Rock On 2 (2016) Rock On 2 could have been so much more, but winds up as a dim echo of the original film.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 58% Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is utterly watchable -- it's the perfect Diwali romantic movie. The only complaint is the constant, ingratiating servitude to Shah Rukh Khan that Johar displays.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 56% Shaadi Ke Side Effects (2014) Every joke seems effortless, every quarrel believable and it's only [Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan's] sparkling chemistry that saves this film from becoming another unrealistic, happy-ever-after Bollywood flick.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 No Score Yet Bobby Jasoos (2014) In the midst of all this is Balan, effortless as the cheeky, fearless, sometimes bumbling amateur detective fighting for her place in this world of men and, closer to home, her conservative father.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 80% Gunday (2014) Gunday is well made, slickly edited and stays true in its rendering of Kolkata during that turbulent era. But Bachchan fans will have more fun identifying all the references and tropes the movie is stuffed with.‐ The National (UAE)

1/5 17% Shivaay (2016) Ajay Devgn -- the Bollywood actor with the permanently hangdog expression -- directs and stars in Shivaay, a torturously long action drama, in which he plays a violent, sexist mountaineer who makes bad decisions.‐ The National (UAE)

1.5/5 50% Mirzya (2016) The romantic tragedy is doomed from the start, mostly because of its disturbing premise.‐ The National (UAE)

2.5/5 56% Dishoom (2016) As for the story, there is none. A solid script is not why we purchase tickets to a masala film, is it? So sit back, eat your popcorn and have a blast.‐ The National (UAE)

2/5 62% Bombay Velvet (2015) All the rich visual layers and authenticity cannot save Bombay Velvet, which is at best a one-dimensional story with characters whose fate the audience will be able to predict within the first 20 minutes.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 22% Bang Bang (2014) No Shakespeare remake, this, but you'll get your money's worth.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 79% PK (2014) Never preachy or high-handed, the filmmaker is an expert at presenting complicated concepts in the simplest of ways.‐ The National (UAE)
