T-Meter Title | Year
3.5/5 No Score Yet Noblemen (2019) Watch the film to come to terms with a taboo subject that needs to be talked about more. Let's hope the film starts a debate about it. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet One Day: Justice Delivered (2019) The chief flaw of the film is in the writing. Characters aren't fleshed out properly. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 36% Super 30 (2019) Mention must be made of the dialogue here, which is witty most times and imparts some inspirational maxims as well. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 29% Malaal (2019) Director Mangesh Hadawale has made sure the film doesn't deviate from its roots. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) In a supposed horror film, the level of spookiness is rather low. Yes, there are jump cuts galore and a couple of scenes do shake you up. But all said and done, you don't actually jump out of your seat... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 25% Kabir Singh (2019) What keeps us from noticing the film's flaws outright is the power-packed performance by Shahid Kapoor. He has done an amazing physical transformation for the film. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 59% The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2019) It's Dhanush's charm and sincerity that holds the film together. He's a natural performer and makes you believe in all the implausible things that you get to see through his warm performance. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 98% Toy Story 4 (2019) Toy Story 4 is the most complex and the most adult film of the franchise so far. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 55% Game Over (2019) Watch the film for its unique take on the home invasion horror sub-genre. It's an overall well-made film and a couple of shots really spook you out for sure... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 22% Men in Black International (2019) All-in-all, this reboot is high on style and low on substance. It is kind of an origin story for the next set of films. Let's hope whoever directs the next installment puts more soul in the film... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Sophie Turner tries gamely to rise above her badly defined character but it's a losing battle indeed... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 29% Bharat (2019) You leave the theatre feeling underwhelmed... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) The present film makes no pretence whatsoever of touching base with reality. - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 90% Rocketman (2019) You feel the manic energy of Elton John coming alive whenever Taron dons outlandish costumes and belts one hit number after the other. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The film has so many plots and subplots that one loses track of them. The only reason you want to make sense of them is because of Keanu Reeves, who makes you believe there is more to his character than mindless action. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 49% A Dog's Journey (2019) If you like watching dog videos -- and who doesn't -- then the film is right up your alley. It's destined to put a smile on your face. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 67% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) The film is aimed at children, who are definitely going to love it. And if they are generous enough to offer insights, the adults accompanying them might enjoy it as well... - Filmfare EDIT

2/5 31% The Intruder (2019) The Intruder doesn't really scare you. The only thing that makes you sit through the film is watching Dennis Quaid taking a shot at being bad -- even if he fails spectacularly at it... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 7% Student of the Year 2 (2019) While the basic formula is on point, it's the ingredients that needed better handling. The writing could have been more consistent. The characters are unevenly fleshed out. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Blank (2019) Given its premise, the film had the potential to be an edge-of-the-seat thriller, if only the writing and execution could have been better. - Filmfare EDIT

4.5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) The film has Marvel bending, breaking their own rules. It's a bold move and should hopefully pay off. - Filmfare EDIT

38% Kalank (2019) All-in-all, watch it for the performances and the opulence... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 57% Pet Sematary (2019) All-in-all, Stephen King fans will probably watch the film to relish another adaptation of the master's works. Non fans will perhaps like the old-fashioned atmospheric horror that the film offers in spades... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet The Tashkent Files (2019) The acting, thanks to the melodramatic nature of the film, is loud and over the top, the dialogue sound bombastic at times. - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 91% Shazam! (2019) All-in-all, by investing in comedy, DC has pushed all the right buttons as far as this franchise is concerned. Let's hope the good run continues and Shazam! brightens up the rather dark and dreary DC Universe. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) All-in-all, Fighting With My Family makes for an all-around family film that's marked by some believable performances. Watch it even if you aren't a fan of pro wrestling. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 17% Romeo Akbar Walter (2019) Watching the film is like akin to reading a John Le Carre novel. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 44% Junglee (2019) All-in-all, Junglee is an action-packed adventure which also tells us that we share this planet with lots of different species, who have an equal right to it. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 46% Dumbo (2019) You watch the film because the baby elephant (you don't know whether it's real or created by CGI) is really cute. And the sequences where he flies do have a magical quality to them. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 91% How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) The animation, by DreamWorks, needless to say, is spot on. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 31% Kesari (2019) Akshay Kumar is verily the soul of the film. His bearing, his mannerisms are totally that of a professional soldier. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 78% Photograph (2019) All-in-all, Ritesh Batra treats us to another delightful film. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Superhero portrayals are tricky but [Larson] has kind of mastered the trick, and has you rooting for her, and that's the actor's real superpower alright... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 53% Badla (2019) In short, Badla is a true-blue mystery thriller. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 33% Luka Chuppi (2019) Watch Luka Chuppi for a dose of some good, clean fun -- much needed after all the heavy-duty stuff which has been going around in real life. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 33% Total Dhamaal (2019) The screenplay is full of twists and some plot points never get explained. The editing is patchy at best. - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 95% Gully Boy (2019) Bollywood music holds sway over Indian listeners and this film ironically may help bring to mainstream the underground rap music flourishing currently. - Filmfare EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2019
3.5/5 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Whatever the case maybe, the film is part superhero origin story, part cross-cultural romance and part coming-of-age story. And this mix of genres is both its strength and paradoxically its weakness as well. - Filmfare EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
3.5/5 85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) The animation, needless to say, is world class. The makers manage to bridge the gap between the real and imaginary worlds through an interesting mix of technology, camera work and editing. - Filmfare EDIT

2/5 49% Escape Room (2019) Summing up, one can only say that the film tries to do too many things at the same time and that leads to its downfall. - Filmfare EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
3.5/5 73% Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (2019) The film belongs to Anil Kapoor. Be it being a mama's boy even post 50, his sense of fulfillment while being in the kitchen, his simmering romance with Juhi Chawla or his emotional outburst near the end -- everything gets his hundred percent. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 63% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Saoirse Ronan is the soul of film, giving her all to the project. The first half especially is quiet dull and you sit through it because Saoirse is simply brilliant...if not for the two actresses, the film easily would have fallen flat. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 56% Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi (2019) A legend gets reborn, at least on screen, and maybe that's the only reality palatable to us right now... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 22% Thackeray (2019) Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays Thackeray and one can very well say it's the role of his life till date. - Filmfare EDIT

2/5 10% Replicas (2019) The film has so many plot holes that it feels like the role model for the screenplay was cheddar cheese. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 46% Second Act (2018) Perhaps the film is a parable about how difficult having it all can be, especially for women. It does make a very pertinent point. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 62% Uri (2019) The patriotic fervour behind the project can't be denied and better detailing definitely would have added another layer to the film. - Filmfare EDIT
