Orange Mittai (2015)

Baahubali: The Beginning (2015)

"Baahubali, despite its epic dimensions -- with a tendency to copy larger-than-life Hollywood heroic tales like Ben-Hur and Troy -- fails at some level to draw us into the narrative." ‐ Hindustan Times

Papanasam (2015)

"One of the nicest aspects about Jeethu Joseph's Papanasam in Tamil is the return of Kamal Haasan as we all once knew him, the great master actor." ‐ Hindustan Times

I (2015)

"The only high point of Shankar's I is Vikram's enthralling performance, first as a rustic body builder and later as a disfigured hunchback." ‐ Hindustan Times

Endhiran (2010)

"Not quite happy with the message that the movie was trying to drive, the script entrusts Rajnikanth with a courtroom appearance, where he delivers a sermon on how science can be used and misused." ‐ Hindustan Times

Kaaki Sattai (2015)

"Kakki Sattai is just not worth the time or money." ‐ Hindustan Times

No One Killed Jessica (2011)

"No One Killed Jessica, which starts on a sombre note, styled more like a documentary, gets increasingly affected towards the end, losing much of its early fire." ‐ Screen International

Golmaal 3 (2010)

"Ratna Pathak brings a touch of sanity to the mad, mad, show... But, for those who seek something beyond slapstick, Rohit Shetty's work will be disappointing." ‐ Screen International

Guzaarish (2010)

"The imagery is riveting -- the alluringly lit-up interiors of a crumbling old mansion and the sunny, windswept, Goa landscape... infuse light and shade into the story of a magician, Ethan Mascarenhas (Hrithik Roshan), whose triumph ends in tragedy. " ‐ Screen International

Break Ke Baad (2010)

"It is not very difficult to predict how the movie will turn out, but apart for Padukone, who appears naturally easy and charming, most of the cast sleepwalk through the 133 minutes running time." ‐ Screen International

Tees Maar Khan (2010)

"Even though it is a spoof, the film is often tediously exaggerated and downright silly, relying on sheer buffoonery to get the narrative moving." ‐ Screen International

Goodbye Solo (2009)

"It is both funny and sad, placid and provocative and, above all, hopeful and despairing." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Grandhotel (2007)

"Director David Ondricek spins a yarn that is great to look at but lacks emotional punch." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Funuke Domo, Kanashimi no ai Wo Misero (Funuke Show Some Love, You Losers!) (2007)

"Has a talented cast yet looks like a television soap." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 30, 2008

Om Shanti Om (2007)

"As a spoof of the 1970s Bollywood, Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om is well-conceived and executed. As a story about reincarnation, it disappoints." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Smoking (2007)

"The film fails to entertain in the conventional sense of the term, and often feels like a documentary." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

The Voyeurs (2007)

"May hold wider commercial prospects than previous films, appealing to viewers outside the art house, given the picture's plot and its treatment." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
