2.5/5 No Score Yet Nanu Ki Jaanu (2018) All said and done, the film is definitely worth a few laughs. Watch it for some good clean fun spiked with a light dose of horror.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) The film is called Truth Or Dare and it's the truths that are more interesting, bringing skeletons out of everyone's closet and driving a dent in relationships. The dare part of it is pure horror kitsch and doesn't affect you really. ‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 63% Beyond the Clouds (2018) It will surely let you escape into another world. Be prepared to get out of your comfort zone though.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 16% Midnight Sun (2018) The two leads try hard to behave like a very much in love couple but are somehow unconvincing in their portrayal. It doesn't come out as natural, the effort is showing.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 50% Rampage (2018) Johnson and his awesomely proportioned muscles wisely take a back seat as the CGI takes over and runs amok all over.‐ Filmfare

4/5 86% October (2018) Shoojit Sircar has exceeded himself and has given us a slow burner that doesn't hold its punches, doesn't give us false promises and yet teaches us that life can yet be beautiful even in the most adverse circumstances.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 71% Mercury (2018) It's a straight-up horror film and the director should have taken more care towards delivering the chills rather than a half-baked save-the-planet kind of message. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Missing (2018) Despite the best efforts of the technical crew, the film would have faltered in the hands of lesser actors. You only sit through it because the Manoj, Tabu and Annu never let you down and hold your attention throughout.‐ Filmfare

3/5 No Score Yet Blackmail (2018) Watch this adult comedy for the performances of its ensemble cast and some true ribald scenes.‐ Filmfare

3/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) We enjoy the rush while it lasts, no doubt but the film doesn't offer any take-away like the original did.‐ Filmfare

3/5 62% Peter Rabbit (2018) It's a perfect family entertainment. The children will surely enjoy it and the film will give the adults a chance to be a kid again. Sony has majorly upped their game as far as animation is concerned.‐ Filmfare

3/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) It's said that the most of the 'horror' in classic horror films is derived from the sound effects and background score. Director John Krasinski has turned that dictum upon its head.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 40% Baaghi 2 (2018) The film is a must watch for action junkies.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 84% The Square (2017) The main problem is that it takes potshots at about everything that is wrong with society. You feel like you're watching a subject taking shape in the creator's mind and then being abandoned for something else...the acting is world-class, however.‐ Filmfare

3/5 71% Raid (2018) In short, the dramatic scenes between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla alone are worth the price of the ticket. Watch the film if you like manly heroes quitely going about their jobs and villains who can be gentlemen at times. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Hate Story 4 (2018) The director has taken the basic inspiration from such films but has not pulled his punches while executing it. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) A good beginning has been made. Vikander is indeed a worthy successor to Jolie. Let's hope the franchise makes full use of her dramatic and athletic talents in future as well.‐ Filmfare

2/5 17% Death Wish (2018) While vigilante justice looks good in superhero movies, which have their own timeline, universe and villains, setting up such a film in the so-called 'murder capital' of America, Chicago, smacks of bad taste and a lack of common sense.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet The Valley (2018) Suchitra Pillai to tries gamely to get the nuances of her role right but is let down by the see-saw writing. Agneeta Thacker as Maya is consistent in some scenes but looks clueless in other.‐ Filmfare

2/5 No Score Yet Veerey Ki Wedding (2018) Cinematography, editing, music are all in disarray and make the film look amateurish. Don't waste your time or money on this one.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 50% Pari (2018) A more dramatic story and tauter screenplay would have turned it into a true blue horror film. But in the present form, the only feeling it evokes is of sadness brought out by the fact that a brilliant opportunity got lost. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Spy thrillers are supposed to be edge-of-the-seat films but this is too long drawn to be classified as such. It's set up like a chess match and we're supposed to hold our breaths for the denouement. But no one can hold their breath for that long.‐ Filmfare

4/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) The cinematography gives a stark feel to the film and the editing too is taut and crisp, making sure the drama doesn't drag anytime. Leaving everything aside, watch the film for the acting alone and you won't come away disappointed.‐ Filmfare

3/5 60% Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety could have done with tighter editing as the second half drags a bit...The film has sharp, witty dialogue, and it's these which make you laugh the most.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Welcome to New York (2018) It's a fresh idea and better execution would have turned it into an eminently enjoyable film. That said, we reiterate that it's seldom that the film industry agrees to laugh at itself and the film should be appreciated for that fact alone.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 73% Hostiles (2018) Christian Bale has given another fine performance...The film's cinematography captures both the West's harshness and it's beauty.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Shot in blue and green hues, the emotionally charged film is a visual feast.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 40% Aiyaary (2018) It all looks mightily fine on paper but the idea to celluloid transition has been a drag.‐ Filmfare

4/5 96% Black Panther (2018) Coogler has played with the age of dilemma of winning freedom through armed struggle versus gaining it through peaceful means. But Black Panther is no Gandhi, he's a superhero with enhanced abilities and a combat suit that James Bond would kill for.‐ Filmfare

2/5 No Score Yet 1921 (2018) Vikram Bhatt has made an unintentionally funny film. He perhaps needs to go back to the drawing board before he takes up horror as a subject once more.‐ Filmfare

3/5 No Score Yet Kaalakaandi (2018) It's the performances and not the screenplay that keeps our interest alive in the film. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) The film would have been lacklustre if not for Hugh Jackman, who has given his heart and soul to the project. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) All-in-all, despite the PG-13 rating, the rebooted version of Jumanji remains a fun-family film to watch over the year-end holidays.‐ Filmfare

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

3.5/5 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) Summing up, Thank You For Your Service is a fine debut for Jason Hall. Let's hope he continues his fine form in future endeavours as well...‐ 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

97% 45 Years (2015) Director Andrew Haigh slowly builds a sense of unease between the couples.‐ 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

3/5 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) The cracks show up in the not-so-young smile...‐ 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 Singh Is Bliing (2015) Lara [Dutta] is a hoot as she deadpans her lines, showing flair for campy comedy. ‐ Filmfare

No Score Yet Loveshhuda (2016) Navnet Kaur Dhillon looks cute and carries off her role well, as do Tisca Chopra as the over caring elder sister and Sachin Khedekar as Pooja's dad.‐ 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
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2017
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
