3.5/5 92% The White Tiger (2020) The film rests squarely on Adarsh Gourav's shoulders, however. He's Balram personified. He's so seamless in his performance that one forgets one's watching an actor at work. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 86% Tribhanga: Tedhi Medhi Crazy (2021) All in all, while Renuka Shahane has made an all-heart film, it's something of a work in progress, rather than a finished product. But it's a fine beginning nevertheless and she holds true promise for the future. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 86% Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi (2019) Seema Pahwa's directorial debut fails to rise above theatrics. - Firstpost EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Durgamati: The Myth (2020) Mahie Gill, Arshad Warsi and Jisshu Sengupta are all talented individuals but are horribly typecast here and are further bogged down by the erratic writing. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 70% Tenet (2020) All-in-all, much like the film's subject, Tenet is a film way ahead of its time. It's Nolan's most audacious experiment. Whether posterity favours it kindly -- only time will tell... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Laxmii (2020) You know where the film is going once the secret is revealed. The comedy part is pretty juvenile. - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 82% Sir (2018) [Filmmaker Rohena Gera] offers a sensitive take into the lives of the protagonists... The end product, which has some good cinematography by Dominique Colin and taut editing by Jacques Comets and Baptiste Ribrault, is as real as it gets... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 53% Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020) The director seems uncertain about taking a single direction and as a result, the film suffers. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 75% Ludo (2020) All-in-all, Anurag Basu has once more given us true-to-life characters caught in circumstances not of their own making and trying to do their best under the circumstances. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 70% Chhalaang (2020) The film gives out the message that sports are as much important for the growth of children as studies and that this should be inculcated right at the grassroots level. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 50% Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari (2020) Barring a few glitches, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari offers a different take on situational comedy. See it for the performances and for Diljit and Manoj's comic timing. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 81% Over the Moon (2020) The film becomes a visual extravaganza once Fei Fei lands on the lunar landscape. The world-building is truly amazing. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 85% Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) All-in-all, while the sequel might not have the bite and the wildness of the first film, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm retains enough of the madcap humour to keep us laughing throughout. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 44% Holidate (2020) The film tries too hard to be a parody of romantic comedies. Maybe that was the general idea initially but the director seemingly lost touch with it as the film progressed. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 53% Hubie Halloween (2020) In a nutshell, Hubie Halloween is a regular Adam Sandler movie -- good for a few laughs but something that won't make for a great cinematic memory in the long run. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 64% Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare (2020) Watch it for the issues it raises, as also for some refined acting displayed by the entire cast. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 91% Enola Holmes (2020) Watching the film, one tends to forget that Millie Bobby Brown is only 16. She's the Hollywood star to watch-out-for in the future. Her effortless acting makes you forget Sherlock. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 44% Khaali Peeli (2020) Both Ishaan and Ananya try hard to get the street lingo right. But both are a bit too polished to look like hardened kids from the mean streets of Mumbai. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 60% Cargo (2020) The film's pace could have been faster. And the plot could've been imagined better. The histrionics of the lead couple holds it together. It would have fallen apart in the hands of lesser actors... - Filmfare EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Sadak 2 (2020) Sanjay Dutt still retains a towering presence and stoically gives his all as he tries to salvage this sinking ship, refusing to abandon his Captain's post... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 17% Class of '83 (2020) Overall, the film gives off the impression of being the pilot episode of an interesting series on Mumbai's cops and criminals. It would have worked better if it was developed as a series... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 100% Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (2020) The aerial photography, as well as SFX, is excellent, making the training scenes and later the combat flying feels immersive. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 57% Lootcase (2019) Lootcase is a light-hearted satire which will definitely make you smile. It's the perfect OTT fodder. You can gloss over certain portions and still enjoy it. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 87% Dil Bechara (2020) Sanjana Sanghi has made a delightful debut as the girl who finds love when she least expects it. She discovers life in the process and comes to realise that joy, even in small quantities, is something worth cherishing. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 80% The Old Guard (2020) The Old Guard is a potpourri of fantasy, mythology, romance, tragedy and kick-ass action -- one can say it has something for everybody... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 83% Bulbbul (2020) Overall, it's a fantastic debut for Anvita Dutt. Bulbbul feels like it's been directed by an experienced hand and not a newbie. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 54% Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai (2020) The film begins with a great premise but doesn't quite live up to it. You expect an Anurag Kashyap film to be more gritty, more searing but you feel like he has pulled in his punches... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 73% Gulabo Sitabo (2020) Some may complain of the slow pace of the film but it's sort of perfect for the subject matter and the milieu. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 46% English Medium (Angrezi Medium) (2020) Irrfan Khan, as we know, was undergoing treatment for a near-fatal disease and was in much pain throughout the shooting of the film. So kudos to him for overcoming the odds and giving us another masterful performance. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 20% Love Aaj Kal (2020) Of the three actors, it's Randeep Hooda who comes across carrying the most gravitas. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Baaghi 3 (2020) Tiger Shroff's show all the way. He slices and dices through the opposition with the finesse of a ballet dancer. He seriously needs better scripts sometimes soon to do better justice to his enormous talent... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 91% The Invisible Man (2020) In fact, instead of surprising us with something new, he has gone in the opposite direction and has rendered the invisible man, well, truly invisible... - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 93% Thappad (2020) Hat's off to director Anubhav Sinha for making yet another well-meaning and powerful film asking all the right questions. It's 2020 and it's a shame that it has taken this long to say that even one slap shouldn't be tolerated. - Filmfare EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2020
3/5 No Score Yet BHOOT - Part One: The Haunted Ship (2020) Vicky Kaushal has tried hard to keep your interest awake in the film through his histrionics. The problem is that he doesn't have anyone to play off to. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 10% Brahms: The Boy II (2020) Brahms: The Boy II is a kind of self-indulgent exercise by the director who perhaps wanted to explore another tangent to his earlier film. It's neither here nor there and seems a bit pointless, really. - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 92% Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2020) Watch the film for its hilarious comedy, slick all around performances and ultimately for it's powerful message of love and acceptance. - Filmfare EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
3/5 50% Shikara (2020) The lead pair, Aadil Khan and Sadia, impress with their natural ease in front of the camera. They do convey the feeling of a couple growing old together, their inner world unaffected by outer turmoil as it is sustained by love. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 44% Malang (2020) Malang is a flawed but entertaining product and would be especially liked by those who are fans of slasher flicks. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) The climax scene where the girls put up a last stand is something you'll remember for its ingenuity. - Filmfare EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Gul Makai (2020) There is a clip from a speech by the real Malala at the end credits which offers more impact about education of girls worldwide than this two hour film because it showed a person's burning desire to bring about a change. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 69% Jawaani Jaaneman (2020) The well-acted and well-crafted Jawaani Jaaneman is a light-hearted treatise on owning up to life's responsibilities. This frothy comedy is total paisa vasool indeed. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 96% A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2020) The film combines claymation technology with computer imagery to come up with some cuddly-faced characters that draw you in their world. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 10% Street Dancer 3 (2020) Street Dancer 3D does offer a visual spectacle when it comes to dance but the patchy story and screenplay dilutes the overall impact. - Filmfare EDIT

4/5 94% Panga (2020) Panga is a film made by a woman, with women at its centre, making out a case for women needing to push for comebacks. It makes the right kind of noise about women empowerment without being preachy. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 57% Darbar (2020) Rajinikanth does everything demanded of him and more with characteristic panache. He showcases snatches of grief-ridden madness in between. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 88% Chhapaak (2020) Meghna Gulzar has once again shown it's possible to marry art with mart. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Shimla Mirchi (2020) Shimla is no longer the visual paradise it used to be and sadly the formula too is past its sell-by date... - Filmfare EDIT
