T-Meter Title | Year
2.5/5 No Score Yet Yajamana (2019) There are many such writing flaws in Yajamana and they can't be overlooked even in a genre that asks you to set aside logic. - Film Companion EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Bell Bottom (2019) Female characters, written by men, are usually one-dimensional. But Bell Bottom does a good job by having them play major roles in the film even though they're not entirely novel. - Film Companion EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Yatra (Tamil) (2019) Yatra may not tick all the boxes of a well-made biopic, but it'll stay as a cinematic account for future politicians to take notes from. - Film Companion EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Natasaarvabhowma (2019) Natasaarvabhowma is a hotchpotch of unentertaining missteps and the women - Anupama and Rachita - definitely deserve a more spirited thriller than this. - Film Companion EDIT

3/5 67% K.G.F. (2018) KGF isn't a drab fare. Nonetheless, it falls short of becoming a great movie by a long mile. - Film Companion EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Mr. Majnu (2019) Mr. Majnu is a rom-com that has no flavour; a bucket of soggy popcorn, if you will. - Film Companion EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Vinaya Vidheya Rama (2019) What a downfall this has been for Vivek Oberoi! If he's worried about the dwindling roles in Hindi cinema, his villainous appearances in Telugu and Tamil should worry him more, for he's simply employed to be loud and rapacious. - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Nota (2018) Watching Deverakonda play Varun has taught me that he can sell any character to the audience if he puts his face and mind to it. - Huffington Post EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Buckaasuura (2018) Buckaasuura isn't a thorough entertainer. It has a good scene here and a funny line there. The momentum takes a hit as there aren't enough situations to invest your energy in the proceedings. - Firstpost EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Gultoo (2018) The roles of the leads are excellently written. A couple of thick layers of moral ambiguity reside in their characters. - Firstpost EDIT

No Score Yet Rajaratha (2018) In spite of Anup's writing dipping a bit, his songs are as sparkly as ever. I sincerely hope that Anup, Nirup and Avantika join forces together in the near future for another film and give us something more to nibble on. - Firstpost EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Chamak (2018) In spite of the sprinkles of romance, comedy, and drama found in Chamak, it struggles to be an out-and-out enjoyable affair. - Firstpost EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Mufti (2017) Mufti is a multi-starrer that's designed to cater to fans of both the leads. - Firstpost EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet A Aa (2016) Samantha may have found a new side to her through A Aa. However, Trivikram's [film] is somewhere between "Okay and Uh, Okay" only. - CNN-News18 EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Thoongaavanam (Thoonga Vanam) (2015) Rajesh M. Selva's thriller starts with a mundane shot and slowly takes things forward with a half-baked noirish approach. - CNN-News18 EDIT

87% Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) Bahubali certainly is bigger and better in its imagination and execution. - CNN-News18 EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Puli (Telugu) (2015) The story moves from a thatched house to a castle. But the film, overall, moves from one corner of fluff to another room of nothingness. - CNN-News18 EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Srimanthudu (2015) Srimanthudu is a notch above the so-so model of commercial films. It'd have been neater had the gap between the intent and the content of the film narrowed down further. - CNN-News18 EDIT
