Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Sarkar Raj (2008)

"Sixty-five-year-old Amitabh Bachchan, India's vibrant and virile living legend, is riveting in nearly every film he does. But even a true fan's ardor is tested by the tedious political thriller, Sarkar Raj." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Bol Bachchan (2012)

"This big-budget summer release starts off awkwardly with a half-hearted music number, but once it kicks into gear, the film's engaging performances and ever-spiraling hysteria make its two-and-a-half-hour running time fly by." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Phantom (2015)

"Dark, if satisfying." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Fan (2016)

"[Director Sharma] pads out the songless film with well-executed but overlong action pieces that become even more frustrating when you consider the ways time could have been better spent exploring Aryan's fascinating backstory." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 18, 2016

Brothers (2015)

"Viewers willing to embrace its skillful and emotionally real depiction of a man making impossible choices -- and especially fans of Akshay Kumar ready to see him excel in a physically and emotionally challenging role -- will be well rewarded." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 27, 2015

Drishyam (2015)

"Drishyam portrays a decent man pushed to the limit by corruption, and Kamat's restrained treatment turns a story ripe for melodrama into a thoughtful depiction of an honest, upstanding family forced to commit a crime in the name of truth and honor." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 3, 2015

Baahubali: The Beginning (2015)

"Although he isn't as well known to Hindi film fans as that other famously shirtless star Salman Khan, Prabhas has a presence grand enough to transcend language." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

English Vinglish (2012)

"The image of the newly confident Shashi striding down a Manhattan street, a takeout coffee in hand and a trench coat belted over her sari, will make you smile days after you leave the theater." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Shaadi Ke Side Effects (2014)

"The main problem with the film is in the casting of its stars." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013)

"Farhan Akhtar's intelligent performance is a highlight of the film." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013)

"Even its formulaic elements are as comforting as a hot, steaming cup of masala tea." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 12, 2015

Don 2 (2011)

"The overly long Don 2 falls short on two key points -- the screenplay and Khan's performance." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 12, 2015

Endhiran (2010)

"Shankar has been working on getting this film made for the past decade, and he clearly is so thrilled to get Robot into theaters that his enthusiasm is infectious. Filmgoers with a taste for the absurd will be richly rewarded." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Bullett Raja (2013)

"Even though the action is well-choreographed and Khan is certainly fit and well-suited to the stunt work, Dhulia seems uncomfortable in the genre and can't seem to drum up any excitement over the film's two-and-a-half hours." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 17, 2015

Haider (2014)

"With Haider, [Bhardwaj] wisely forgoes the rough-edged attitude in his other films to embrace a slicker and more sophisticated style; and some of the film's most effective moments are masterful in their visual storytelling skill." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 15, 2015

Krrish 3 (2013)

"The movie is devoid of that one secret ingredient that makes audiences love superhero films: It just isn't cool." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 15, 2015

Bang Bang (2014)

"Hrithik Roshan is believable as a brilliant international jewel thief -- but a slack Katrina Kaif lends little to the proceedings." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Raanjhnaa (2013)

"Somehow, and despite several unrealistic shifts in tone and plot, director Aanand Rai pulls it all together into an appealing mishmash." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 12, 2015

Happy New Year (2014)

"More than just a sip of fizzy fun, this 3-hour comedy is Jeroboam-sized." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 11, 2015

Chennai Express (2013)

"Khan's gift for effortlessly moving between comedy and love scenes is complemented by Padukone's striking beauty and comic chops." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Ungli (Unglee) (2014)

"Despite its intriguing and relevant premise, Ungli suffers from a too-tame and by-the-numbers directorial approach. This stuff is supposed to have viewers raging for revolution on the way to the parking lot; it isn't supposed to be boring." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 8, 2015

PK (2014)

"The film deftly pokes fun at the foibles of earthlings -- especially their warring religions -- with warmth and compassion, and shines a light on the contradictions of India's strict but unwritten social rules." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 7, 2015

Dhoom 3 (2013)

"When Dhoom 3 is going at full tilt, as in an autorickshaw chase over corrugated tin village rooftops, it's an exhilarating ride." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

"Romance king Yash Chopra delivers a swoon-worthy Bollywood love story." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Jism 2 (2012)

"The most controversial Hindi film of the year is also the worst." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 9, 2012


"Batra falls into a formulaic trap on several occasions. But the way he depicts the growing closeness between Rahul and Riana is sincere, and the way their relationship ends up is definitely a stretch for a Hindi film." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Delhi Belly (2011)

"Sexy, filthy and thoroughly entertaining comedy marks a welcome shift in contemporary Indian cinema." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Ready (2011)

"It's no surprise that Ready, a wafer-thin romantic comedy from Anees Bazmee, a filmmaker known for dumb-and-dumber knucklehead comedies, fails to make a mark artistically." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

No One Killed Jessica (2011)

"A hybrid of fact and fiction, this Delhi-based thriller packs a punch no matter the label." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 10, 2011

Three Idiots (2009)

"Despite its flaws, 3 Idiots conveys a powerful message about how valuable your friends can be when they push you toward reaching your own highest potential." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Kites (2010)

"Roshan anchors the film with a solid, believable performance and a palpable chemistry with his co-star that will remind audiences just how hot a good Bollywood romance can be." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 6, 2010

Raajneeti (2010)

"Its adult and hard-hitting subject matter probably won't bring in masala-loving family crowds, but it offers a lesson with long-lasting emotional and moral impact for thinking audiences." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Chance Pe Dance (2009)

"When the music stops, Chance Pe Dance is just another dopey dance movie." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

New York (2009)

"Although the film is a routine thriller with few surprises, it deserves attention because its topic, even eight years after Sept. 11, is one that many South Asian Americans still take very seriously." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
