Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 86% Badhaai Ho (2018) Shantanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial capitalise on the uneasiness of being in this pickle to script hilarious sequences that would leave you in splits.‐ Mumbai Mirror

3/5 38% Helicopter Eela (2018) There is an attempt to cover affiliated concerns of helicopter parents - but it's an aerial look at each and doesn't dig beneath the surface.‐ Mumbai Mirror

3.5/5 87% Tumbbad (2018) The technique - of using sounds to allow viewers mentally fabricate the unknown - draws on one's imagination and worst fears.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 33% Loveyatri (2018) You've seen it too many times to care. ‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 69% Manto (2018) This cinematic version of his life and works, however, is far from unbearable but it's surely too staid for someone with such a vivid imagination. Let's just say, we would've much rather preferred a hagiography.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2/5 No Score Yet Mitron (2018) A predictable plot and clichéd turns and twists reduce this two-hour watch into one that can be either skipped or caught late.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 83% Love Sonia (2017) Tabrez Noorani is so consumed in narrating the dangerous reality of survivors of sex trafficking that he ignores the fact that he has to also engage audiences with his characters - for them to actually feel their plight. ‐ Mumbai Mirror

4/5 80% Husband Material (Manmarziyaan) (2018) Love triangles are as old as cinema itself. But this one marks an evolution of the genre that most reduce to "who gets the girl?" and comprehensively concludes that often, love is not all it takes.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2/5 33% Paltan (2018) Dutta's contribution to managing the Indian army's image must be lauded. His filmography covers the pertinent wars that altered the country's history and geography but has forever subscribed to tested tropes and heightened jingoism.‐ Mumbai Mirror

1.5/5 17% Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se (2018) The trio from the Deol family could've made a home video to satiate their creative urges, instead of inflicting cinema-goers to this sort of torment.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 50% Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (2018) An issue with this one is that it sets up elaborate gags or even scenes which would be hilarious if fleshed out but then, there's very little writing to fall back on. ‐ Mumbai Mirror

1.5/5 No Score Yet Genius (2017) A self-confessed moral here is - "Love is a higher wisdom than all of philosophy." If you know what that means, your brain has had the better of you too.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2/5 11% Satyameva Jayate (2018) In 2018, it seems like a jaded remake that insults the audiences' intelligence.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet Vishwaroopam 2 (2018) This one is a watered-down version that barely draws on the veteran actor's many talents and scripts its own demise.‐ Mumbai Mirror

3/5 83% Mulk (2018) The first half of Mulk is crisp. Events unravel swiftly and unexpected turns manage to translate the tension, frustration and anxiety across the screen. But the second half is largely restricted.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 63% Fanney Khan (2018) For an adaptation, Fanney Khan is only mildly inspirational, and lacks the intensity and thrill that would force audiences to imagine the worst when the story takes an unexpected turn.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 71% Karwaan (2018) It's unfortunate that films about road trips haven't evolved in decades and even this one clings to the same clichéd construct.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
2/5 33% Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 (2018) It's difficult to imagine that this film has been helmed by Dhulia - the very same who directed the gripping account of the dacoit-turned-athlete Paan Singh Tomar or even the previous films in this franchise.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 44% Dhadak (2018) Dhadak is only a first copy from Thailand that milks the original to a point that the cow would deem objectionable.‐ Mumbai Mirror

3.5/5 63% Soorma (2018) Taapsee Pannu's doe-eyed Harpreet manages it all - the coy, the determined and the unflinching.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2/5 54% For Here Or To Go? (2017) Ali Fazal is a promising talent and it is a shame that this film barely draws on his strengths.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
3.5/5 50% Sanju (2018) Rajkumar Hirani's prime job is to make a film worth your multiplex ticket and he meticulous picks anecdotes from Dutt's life that render a compelling narrative and pack in a range of emotions.‐ Bangalore Mirror

1.5/5 9% Race 3 (2018) It would be a waste of space to delve into the story, so let's skip to what really counts. If you felt the previous Race films were cocky, this one resembles a poultry farm.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 50% Kaala (2018) With a run-time bordering on three hours, Kaala is surely 30 minutes too long...but for Thalaiva fans, an immeasurable treat.‐ Mumbai Mirror

3/5 63% Veere Di Wedding (2018) While this one works as a breezy film on girl bonding, it gets a bit tedious while taking a stab at patriarchy.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
2.5/5 50% Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran (2018) Sharma had a compelling story which could've rendered a thrilling watch, if only he could've focused on telling it with some conviction.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet High Jack (2018) Director Akarsh Khurana should be held responsible for this big-screen debacle. Since he is also credited for screenplay and lyrics, there's even more reason to blame him for this bad trip.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
3.5/5 100% Raazi (2018) Given the political climate, this one's a relevant watch - especially since little has turned between the two nations over the years.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
3/5 67% 102 Not Out (2018) This one goes beyond mirroring the clichéd plot and even offers a solution that neglected parents may find inconvenient to execute but surely one that offers redemption of sorts.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
2.5/5 33% Daas Dev (2018) The cumulative result - a political pudding that's overbaked and lacks distinction.‐ Mumbai Mirror

1.5/5 No Score Yet Nanu Ki Jaanu (2018) The biggest mystery of all remains, did the person who invested in this excuse for celluloid do so out of free will? We'll never know.‐ Mumbai Mirror

3/5 65% Beyond the Clouds (2018) Like in most Majidi films, the lingering overarching message is reassuring - despite everything, there's sufficient good in all of us, even if it may surface only occasionally.‐ Mumbai Mirror

2.5/5 67% Mercury (2018) Deva is determined to make this nefarious image stick and is rather convincing too. Since an overwhelming section of his filmography has seen him tapping his toes to churn out jigs kids shouldn't replicate at home, it gives his monster a delicate touch.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
3.5/5 89% October (2018) Moody and petulant and yet, almost obsessively sentimental.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Missing (2018) Writer-director Mukul Abhyankar must have had an ambitious script. Sadly, it surely didn't clear customs to reach Mauritius where the film is shot.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
3/5 57% Hichki (2018) Drafting an inspiring story about a teacher who manages to tame even those on the verge of delinquency will naturally tug on a certain emotion. Just that the number of films that have blindly lifted this formula renders this one to be almost formatted.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet Dil Juunglee (2018) A final warning: carry ear plugs, this one gets unbearably sappy in the last 30 minutes.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
1.5/5 0% Hate Story 4 (2018) This one also marks the beginning of another hate story - one with your brain cells. ‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Hamne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya (2018) The approach is almost academic, but it's a class for slow learners as every message is tossed about, repeated and hammered down.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 50% Pari (2018) Anushka Sharma with her steely gaze and blood-smeared face is determined in her sub-human character. It's a brave choice and may not work for everyone. But then, the actress has often chosen to tell stories that most wouldn't dare to.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
1/5 No Score Yet Veerey Ki Wedding (2018) A dialogue in the film - delivered along with a blow - summarises its verdict-when a joke isn't funny, don't laugh and mislead others.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Welcome to New York (2018) There are several points when one is forced to wonder the objective of making this film. Is this a front for an elaborately-constructed tax break? ‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
3/5 43% Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) It's an anti-love story for sure. But it doesn't entirely put you off happy endings.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
2.5/5 29% Aiyaary (2018) With his glorious mooch and determined eyes, Manoj Bajpayee is surely in top form here and is perhaps, the only reason to endure this tedious ordeal...Here, the maker's obsession with military intelligence is out to test the audience's intellect.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz (2018) The film's story has barely much to offer but Onir carefully crafts emotionally-charged sequences that keep you interested and curious about the proceedings - even while the end is predictable.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2018
2.5/5 92% Pad Man (2018) It was a noble cause for sure, if only the makers would have soaked up some of the melodrama.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Kuldip Patwal: I Didn't Do It! (2017) Below average production values and the choice of supporting cast dilutes the story, while forcing unnecessary subplots makes it difficult to remain tuned in.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
3.5/5 71% Padmaavat (2018) Even if Bhansali suspends reality in his immersive world, it's a strike from reality we'd like to hold on to.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet Vodka Diaries (2018) Psychological thrillers work when they manage to pickle your mind and tickle your fears. Vodka Diaries, at best, leaves one mildly confused and occasionally concerned about its erratic proceedings.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet My Birthday Song (2018) Incessant reliance on tropes and lack of focus leaves one disinterested and bored - even before the big reveal. ‐ Mumbai Mirror
