100% Filmistaan (2014) It's seldom that we make introspective films laced with dark humour. It's great to find such superlative effort from first time filmmaker.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 20% Firangi (2017) Kapil Sharma tries hard to carry the film on his shoulders but mostly flounders. You keep waiting for him to take command of the screen but that never happens.‐ Filmfare

3/5 97% Coco (2017) American films often are accused of either making a caricature of the minorities or of dumbing down their culture, their traditions. Coco thankfully escapes both allegations.‐ Filmfare

70% Central Intelligence (2016) The film's deft pace, it's frenzied silliness, punchy wisecracks coupled with the Johnson and Hart's deft handling of the situational comedy holds your interests despite the threadbare plot. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) There was enough potential for his character to have evolved into something truly magnificent but the chance was let slip by the director. And that, sadly, is by and large true for the whole film itself...‐ Filmfare

No Score Yet Phobia (2016) All-in-all, Phobia makes for an engaging weekend watch. It isn't high on gore but will still thrill all the same...‐ Filmfare

3/5 22% Inferno (2016) All-in-all, Inferno doesn't have that edge-of-the-seat quality that was necessary for an end of the world scenario film.‐ Filmfare

3/5 52% The Accountant (2016) The Accountant is an out-and -out action film and action film buffs won't be disappointed by the use of heavy duty guns and armour piercing bullets which turn the climax into a veritable battlefield. ‐ Filmfare

2/5 No Score Yet Dongri Ka Raja (2016) All-in-all, Dongri Ka Raja can be labelled as an honest effort to recreate the gangster genre. A little more effort would have resulted in a far better film. ‐ Filmfare

No Score Yet Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive (2016) [Mishra] Sikander is a hoot actually in his role, swinging from a WASP with a Manhattan twang to an NRI filmmaker with a yen for melodrama.‐ Filmfare

90% Airlift (2016) Kumud Mishra's portrayal of a sympathetic civil servant is praiseworthy, as is Prakash Belawadi's as a disgruntled middle class man who can't adjust himself to the situation.‐ Filmfare

No Score Yet Dear Dad (2016) Go watch this short, sensitive film that gives out the message that parenthood has nothing to do with one's sexuality. That all every family needs is a little more love to make the scars heal‐ Filmfare

4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) This is Star Wars for adults. Well-loved characters die, the violence is gory by and large and the atmosphere is more on the lines of the French Resistance during World War II than the light-hearted thrillers that George Lucas films were.‐ Filmfare

0% Teraa Surroor (2016) You feel Himesh [Reshammiya's] goal for himself in the film was not to let any flicker of emotion escape his visage.‐ Filmfare

1.5/5 No Score Yet Machine (2017) The film is a complete disservice to Mustafa, who looks like a romantic hero but made to act like a heartless killer, something which doesn't suit him at all. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 20% Mubarakan (2017) All-in-all, while Mubarakan suffers from a strained and predictable plot, its silliness does makes you laugh. So go watch the film if indulging in there hours of escapist comedy is your game...‐ Filmfare

4/5 80% Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) All-in-all, Bareilly Ki Barfi is a good second film from Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and gives her a chance to prove her versatility. Watch the film for some good, clean fun.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 40% Munna Michael (2017) What this movie lacks is self-belief and great music. If the whole point of the film was to make it a tribute to Michael Jackson then MJ's original tunes should have been used.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) The standout performances belong to Will Smith, who gets the balance between a dreaded killer and a caring father just right. Margot Robbie too is a hoot as Harley Quinn.‐ Filmfare

93% Guilty (Talvar) (2015) The film has a Rashomon like narrative, putting different viewpoints and storylines in place and whetting your appetite with each reveal.‐ Filmfare

No Score Yet Puli (Telugu) (2015) Chimbu Deven had the right idea but lost his way in execution. We hope he learns from his mistakes and makes a better film the next time around.‐ Filmfare

92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) Director Drew Goddard has made a clever film. He has shown us the elements of classic horror, told us what we miss in today's films and questioned the need for watching the genre.‐ Filmfare

43% Welcome Back (2015) Watch the film if you like cornball comedies. It's a pure massy, masala entertainer that's good to go on a lazy weekend.‐ Filmfare

87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) The original creator Bob Kane, who was given the task of creating a real world superhero to counter Superman, would have been immensely proud of this film. Because this is as real as it gets... and then some.‐ Filmfare

83% Talaash (2012) The film hooks you from first shot onwards and refuses to let go. The suspense is maintained throughout. There are enough red herrings to keep a convention of Agatha Christie fans happy.‐ Filmfare

40% Dabangg 2 (2012) The cliches work because of the phenomenon called Salman Khan.‐ Filmfare
