3/5 57% The Grinch (2018) The film is primarily aimed at children but adults too won't suffer much watching it. Hope and a little sugar does go a long way, as they say.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 18% Thugs of Hindostan (2018) Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub's character of Shanichar was totally not needed. Katrina Kaif has two songs and a couple of scenes and even Fatima Sana Shaikh is reduced to being a gymnast here.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Air Strike (2018) There is no consistency in both theme and treatment. It feels like the director wanted to put every patriotic movie trope that he could think of in one film and exploit them all. The result is a mishmash...‐ Filmfare

2/5 20% 5 Weddings (2018) The film looks like a bright idea on paper but is a rather disjointed effort on execution.‐ Filmfare

2/5 No Score Yet Dassehra (2018) Angry cop movies need an emotional core. They at least need a coherent plot. And need to be products of their time.‐ Filmfare

3/5 48% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) It's an SFX driven film and the character effects are imaginatively done to say the least. However, the film suffers when it comes to the plot and the story.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 36% Hunter Killer (2018) Watch the film if you like underwater action as some of the scenes are really immersive, otherwise the film has nothing new to offer. Gerard Butler fans would be disappointed for sure.‐ Filmfare

3/5 79% Halloween (2018) Watch the film for some old-fashioned slasher fun and in-form acting from the ensemble cast.‐ Filmfare

2/5 0% Namaste England (2018) Both Parineeti and Arjun are in need of a hit and to that end they try hard to spice up the proceedings. However, their heroic efforts aren't enough to salvage the disjointed story and screenplay.‐ Filmfare

4/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) Cooper, who has turned director with the film, extracts commendable performances from everybody in the cast. The life of a musician is caught perfectly.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 100% Andhadhun (2018) Watch Andhadhun for it's zig zag storyline and spot on acting by the entire cast. It's one of those mysteries which you'll like to go back to despite knowing the ending.‐ Filmfare

3/5 29% Venom (2018) Venom is a mixed bag. While the CGI and action scenes are great, the acting and story is unfocused. Let's hope things brighten up in the forthcoming sequels...‐ Filmfare

3/5 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) If you are tired of watching all those Disney princess movies coming out of Hollywood, then give this one a chance, just to see it done with an all-Asian cast. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 33% Loveyatri (2018) All-in-all, both Aayush and Warina have made decent debuts. A little more polish and a better choice of films will surely see them shine in future.‐ Filmfare

2/5 11% Peppermint (2018) The film makes noises about female empowerment on one hand but sticks to the worst kind of racial profiling on the other.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 50% Pataakha (2018) Pataakha is a cracker of a watch indeed, total paisa vasool on the strength of the acting alone.‐ Filmfare

3/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Watch the film for its superbly executed action and for more of a story than the last one. And for the behemoth called Denzel Washington...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) All-in-all, the film comes across as a family entertainer - something which the adults can enjoy with their kids -- and has all the hallmarks of the beginning of a profitable franchise for Amblin.‐ Filmfare

3/5 14% Batti Gul Meter Chalu (2018) All-in-all, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a film which has its heart in the right place. Better editing and a shortening of length by twenty minutes would have made the film more impactful.‐ Filmfare

3/5 69% Manto (2018) ...it's a faithful recreation of the life and times of one of Indian subcontinent's literary giants whose writings are still as relevant today as they were then.‐ Filmfare

2/5 33% The Predator (2018) The original had us glued to our sears with tension but here the drama doesn't induce any goosebumps. Also, the film is choppily edited and hence the narration looks disjointed.‐ Filmfare

3/5 No Score Yet Mitron (2018) In short, watch this relatable comedy with your family, and come back with the laughs and a better understanding of generational gap...‐ Filmfare

4/5 80% Husband Material (Manmarziyaan) (2018) Shot well by Sylvester Fonseca and edited well by Aarti Bajaj, the film scores on technical fronts as well. Summing up, Anurag has made a Silsila for the Tinder generation.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 83% Love Sonia (2017) The film just doesn't raise the questions but offers some answers as well, ultimately stating that one should keep on fighting for one's survival even in the face of the most adverse of circumstances...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 57% Laila Majnu (2018) Summing up, Laila Majnu isn't your typical Bollywood romance. It's not a feel-good story with a happily-ever-after ending but is something that will shake you up emotionally for all the right reasons...‐ Filmfare
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
2/5 27% The Nun (2018) The Nun is like a Ramsay Brothers film with better production values. Even the Ramsays never churned out this level of drivel in the name of horror.‐ Filmfare

3/5 33% Paltan (2018) All-in-all, the film might be a little melodramatic at times but its heart certainly is in the right place. We need to tell more such stories about small and big victories to boost the morale of our overworked troops...‐ Filmfare

3/5 78% Stree (2018) What keeps our interest alive is the dialogue, which is witty and earthy, and the lively performances. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 17% Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se (2018) The film, written by Dheeraj and directed by Navaniat Singh, is a loud, loud comedy that does give you a smattering of laughs.‐ Filmfare

3/5 52% Papillon (2018) While you do feel the pathos, it doesn't quite give you the intended catharsis. It's still a cracking adventure yarn and those who haven't seen the 1973 original should definitely go for it.‐ Filmfare
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
3.5/5 50% Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (2018) The film has a cracking first half which just zooms by. The second half lags a bit but only because the director is trying to tie all the strands together.‐ Filmfare

4/5 81% Alpha (2018) It's a type of film which doesn't get made anymore. Watch it for its uniqueness as well as the warm-hearted tale it unfolds...‐ Filmfare

3/5 23% Mile 22 (2018) Those who like blood and gore action will surely like it. The rest can safely give it a miss...‐ Filmfare

2/5 No Score Yet Genius (2017) With his soft looks and lean physique, Utkarsh looks better in the romantic portions. It would have been better perhaps of he was introduced in a straight-up romance. ‐ Filmfare
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet The Stolen Princess (Vykradena pryntsesa: Ruslan i Ludmila) (2018) The film makes use of self-deprecating humour and offers a quirky take on all those Disney Princess films. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 11% Satyameva Jayate (2018) This masala potboiler is strictly for John Abraham and hardcore action fans. The film's title made it sound patriotic but the patriotism gets overshadowed by high melodrama and mindless action.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 60% Gold (2018) There's a silly grin on your face as forgetting the grim reality of today, you feel proud to be an Indian, for a few moments at least.‐ Filmfare

3/5 45% The Meg (2018) The film, shot mostly at the sea, offers some stunning underwater scenes and some decent CGI. It hovers between being being a gloried B movie and a certified A movie.‐ Filmfare

3/5 71% Christopher Robin (2018) All-in-all, the film takes you on a nostalgic trip down your childhood where you actually got to spend some carefree moments.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) It's a fantastic take on the buddy movie formula and we hope other filmmakers would take the initiative forward in future.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Vishwaroopam 2 (2018) Kamal Hassan does everything right in the film as an actor but we're still left with an unsatisfied appetite as we walk out of the theatre.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 71% Karwaan (2018) This comedy is also a roadtrip and Avinash Arun's cinematography gives the film a picture postcard quality.‐ Filmfare

3/5 63% Fanney Khan (2018) This isn't just a film about the entertainment industry. It's also a story about a father's love for his daughter.‐ Filmfare
