T-Meter Title | Year
29% India's Most Wanted (2019) With a pernicious depiction of Islam and terrorism, India's Most Wanted is a bland thriller. - The Hindu EDIT

25% De De Pyaar De (2019) The film's craft adds to its staleness and anachronistic feel. As much as the film wants to be an iconoclast, it reinstates the same conservatism it pretends to take down. - The Hindu EDIT

29% UglyDolls (2019) All good intentions come to naught with a messy narrative and garish visuals in Ugly Dolls. - The Hindu EDIT

62% A Dog's Way Home (2019) The calculative narrative regurgitates old tropes of Hollywood's canine films... - The Hindu EDIT

No Score Yet The Tashkent Files (2019) With no conviction and utter confusion, the film is evidently more drama than reality. - The Hindu EDIT

94% Us (2019) The slasher-horror aspect of Us, by no means, is groundbreaking or innovative. But one would do the film great disservice by simply viewing it as a genre film. - The Hindu EDIT

34% Wonder Park (2019) It's a pity that a film, which puts imagination on a pedestal and incessantly advocates for it, presents visuals that are anachronistic and shoddy. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2019
69% Cold Pursuit (2019) The film often finds itself being racially offensive and tone-deaf with liberal usage of stereotypes. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Returns appears to have set out with a similar agenda. The captivating, effulgent, upbeat and imaginative visuals along with lucid storytelling are tailored for the young ones, while consistently pleading the adults to see the film with the same naivety. - The Hindu EDIT

33% Helicopter Eela (2018) Helicopter Eela is a loud, tone-deaf mother-son coming-of-age saga that lacks insights and observational humour. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2018
63% Pataakha (2018) The humour is raw and earthy and the impudent simplicity of the narrative is refreshing. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
76% Love Sonia (2018) A well-intentioned film, Love Sonia panders to a voyeuristic Western gaze... - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
56% Laila Majnu (2018) The problem with the first half is that it neither commits to melodrama nor realism. It is stuck in an awkward limbo. But the second half of the film, with right dollops of exaggeration, soulful melodies and acting skills, elicits the right amount... - The Hindu EDIT

29% Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 (2018) Whatever little momentum the thriller aspect of this film creates, is washed out by the lacklustre drama that constantly interjects the narrative. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
69% Ocean's 8 (2018) If Ocean's 8 is pushing for rebellion - even against traditional comedies - it's not anarchic enough. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
90% Isle of Dogs (2018) ...witty and meticulously executed. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
20% Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain (2018) The subject could have been relatable to a wide Indian audience who are bound in an arranged marriage, but Mishra is neither convincingly awkward as a repentant husband nor staunchly belligerent as a patriarchal one. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
60% Hope Aur Hum (2018) Like an American sitcom, the film tries to go back and forth between characters, but it is executed so haphazardly that it's difficult to care for any of them. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
52% Tomb Raider (2018) Uthaug's approach to the mythical tale is rather heavy-handed with an emphasis on hollow action sequences, making the film appear purposeless. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
50% Munna Michael (2017) Munna Michael may pass muster as an industrially sculpted film meant for entertainment, but its underlying normalisation and glorification of street violence, male entitlement and dismissal of consent could be lethal. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
56% Indu Sarkar (2017) If Bhandarkar, were to go by his formula of shocking people through exposés, this film does nothing more than portraying the anti-Emergency wave as a second freedom struggle for India. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2018
78% Hindi Medium (2017) Admission in a prestigious school maybe shown as a quick fix to poverty and a fast train towards upward social mobility, but look beyond and you will find a funny film being driven by goodwill and engaging performances. - The Hindu EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
25% Half Girlfriend (2017) Mohit Suri's adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's book is replete with a series of utterly illogical events. - The Hindu EDIT

33% Mubarakan (2017) In this mind-numbingly regressive film, the only silver lining is Anil Kapoor. - The Hindu EDIT
