Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 83% 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

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 11% 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 71% 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

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

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

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 71% 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 40% Daas Dev (2018) The cumulative result - a political pudding that's overbaked and lacks distinction.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
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
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
3/5 63% 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 71% 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

3.5/5 86% 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 80% 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 No Score Yet 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 60% 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 40% 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
2.5/5 100% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
No Score Yet 1921 (2018) If Vikram Bhatt fancies himself as a weaver of stories, he's gone over the hemline of logic here. Relying on jaded tropes such as flickering lights, grisly halls, smoky corridors and chalk-faced spirits, there's little here that we've not seen.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet Kaalakaandi (2018) Kaalakaandi uses great power so irresponsibly that its under two-hour runtime feels like a bad trip. ‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
3/5 83% The Brawler (Mukkabaaz) (2017) Vineet Kumar Singh delivers his blows and one-liners with equal precision and is committed to his role. But Zoya Hussain is clearly the best find here.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
3.5/5 67% Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) [Director Ali Abbas Zafar] is sharp and effective in assembling this war thriller, while also packing in sufficient masala for the Indian palette. ‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
2/5 60% Monsoon Shootout (2013) The concern with this film is that there's so much happening and yet, there's so little at stake. It delves into the lives and longings of its characters without as much as establishing them and consequently, one is unable to empathise.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
1.5/5 0% Great Grand Masti (2016) Only one piece of advice for those rushing to catch this: carry along a chastity belt. It would be useful only if worn over the head, covering your eyes and ears.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Fukrey Returns (2017) This one breeds on familiarity a tad too much and intensifies character quirks to result in a mishmash that may be watchable, but not entirely enjoyable.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
2/5 20% Firangi (2017) There are films that seem bearable when you go in with zero expectations and there are those that disappoint even when you're prepared to have your brains grilled. No prize for guessing which category this one falls in.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
1.5/5 No Score Yet Julie 2 (2017) Modestly-budgeted sleaze fests of the kind rarely invest in story and plot and get right down to delivering the goods. Julie 2 shatters this notion and packs in so much plot, it will make your brains rot.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
1.5/5 No Score Yet Aksar 2 (2016) The real suspense here, is who parted with their hard earned money to produce this excuse for a film?‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
4/5 86% An Insignificant Man (2016) Director duo Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla should be credited for piecing together facts and presenting them with the required cinematic flourishes that accentuates the drama in the core footage. ‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
3/5 83% Tumhari Sulu (2017) The character's ability to drop bijlee and hold your attention and interest through a large part of this film makes this an adventure worth attempting.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
3.5/5 86% Qarib Qarib Singlle (2017) [Mawazuddin Siddiqui] nails his one-liners and ensures each time he's on the screen, one is trained on his reactions.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
2/5 40% Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana (2017) But the only transformation here, happens for those in the audience - greying guaranteed.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
4/5 100% Aligarh (2016) How one experiences this film mirrors one's opinions and preconceived notions of alternative sexualities. It's a film of many firsts. And given how most Hindi movies caricature homosexuals, this one is a reality check.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
3.5/5 No Score Yet Daddy (2017) Ahluwalia's depiction of Bombay in the 70s-90s could be compared to Stranger Things' reading of life in the Mid-West in the 80s.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Poster Boys (2017) This one's tricky as it has to sensitively portray the plight of the characters while ensuring the screwball humour doesn't take away from the proceedings. On that count, the maker does fairly well.‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Moh Maya Money (2016) This is a story of desperate measures but what works for it, is the fact that it isn't just that. ‐ Mumbai Mirror
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2017
1.5/5 No Score Yet Mantostaan (2016) Lack of research, exaggerated violence and a forced attempt at stitching the short stories together makes this an exhausting watch.‐ Mumbai Mirror
