Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
55% Tamasha (2015) Kapoor is beautifully cast, his trademark mix of assertive theatricality and subtle emotion well suited to the role of a man who seemingly has it all under control, until he doesn't.‐ Hollywood Reporter

20% Main Tera Hero (2014) Loud, long and largely unfunny except for a few clever turns of phrase, Main Tera Hero boasts catchy songs, but is not destined to make box office history.‐ Hollywood Reporter

71% Padmaavat (2018) Padmaavat's sumptuous palace interiors and classically inspired music lend elegance to the film without overpowering it - a welcome shift in tone from the director of the lavish but uneven Devdas and Saawariya. ‐ Hollywood Reporter

67% Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) An exciting music score and high-quality fight scenes go a long way toward keeping interest up during its two-hour-45-minute running time.‐ Hollywood Reporter

50% Gulaab Gang (2014) This is no arty festival film - where Gulaab Gang succeeds is in its total embrace of the Bollywood style, with all its music and deliberate artifice.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Rockstar (2011) Rockstar is that rare popular film that captures the precise moment when music draws a man into the realm of the divine.‐ Hollywood Reporter

25% Tubelight (2017) A macho Bollywood star tries on the role of a developmentally disabled man-child. It doesn't end well.‐ Hollywood Reporter

33% 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

67% 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

38% Phantom (2015) Dark, if satisfying.‐ Hollywood Reporter

78% 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

50% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2015
78% 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

92% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
No Score Yet 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
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
56% Shaadi Ke Side Effects (2014) The main problem with the film is in the casting of its stars.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
87% Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) Farhan Akhtar's intelligent performance is a highlight of the film.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 17, 2015
50% Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013) Even its formulaic elements are as comforting as a hot, steaming cup of masala tea.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 12, 2015
75% Don 2 (2011) The overly long Don 2 falls short on two key points -- the screenplay and Khan's performance.‐ Hollywood Reporter

60% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2015
No Score Yet 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

91% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2015
73% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2015
22% 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

No Score Yet 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

57% Happy New Year (2014) More than just a sip of fizzy fun, this 3-hour comedy is Jeroboam-sized.‐ Hollywood Reporter

54% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2015
0% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2015
79% 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

80% 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

No Score Yet The most controversial Hindi film of the year is also the worst.‐ Hollywood Reporter

71% EK MAIN AIR EKK TU (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
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2012
93% Delhi Belly (2011) Sexy, filthy and thoroughly entertaining comedy marks a welcome shift in contemporary Indian cinema.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2011
43% 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

71% No One Killed Jessica (2011) A hybrid of fact and fiction, this Delhi-based thriller packs a punch no matter the label.‐ Hollywood Reporter

77% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2010
14% 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

No Score Yet Chance Pe Dance (2009) When the music stops, Chance Pe Dance is just another dopey dance movie.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 21, 2010
67% 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
Posted Jul 2, 2009
No Score Yet Billu (2009) Bollywood comedy about an unlikely friendship is full of unexpected pleasures.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 23, 2009
