Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/5 No Score Yet Sanam Teri Kasam (2016) Your heart genuinely goes out to Harsh and Mawra who are let down by their clumsy narrative.‐ The Times of India

3/5 80% Zubaan (2016) Zubaan might test your patience but it is heartbreaking in parts. Luckily, the melodrama is kept at bay even when the protagonist finds himself divided between materialism and mirth.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 80% Omertà (2018) It's a shame really that Omerta lacks depth, never giving an insight into Omar's criminal designs. As a thriller, it's pacy and yet, distinctly half-baked and stiff. ‐ Mid Day

2.5/5 No Score Yet Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive (2016) What this oversimplistic film lacks is sharp writing. It is entertaining in parts but once the curse of the second hour strikes, the wicked streak takes a backseat.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Shortcut Safaari (2016) As if the look of the film weren't dull enough, its paper-thin plot and poor acting is the last straw.‐ The Times of India

1/5 No Score Yet Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd. (2016) Besides the leads, who are blank and caricaturish, a horde of talented artistes have been wasted.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Rough Book (2015) Even as you lose your heart to Rough Book's intention, you can't buy the amateurish story.‐ The Times of India

4/5 82% Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016) The film is a difficult watch. It makes you queasy. It is crude, callous and keeps you in suspense all through.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Phobia (2016) Watching a horror film that has no chudail, no exorcist, no graveyards and no ugly make-up is almost like a breath of fresh air. Finally some can scare people without using the quintessential paranormal props. ‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet One Night Stand (2016) To her credit, Jasmine Moses D'souza has dared to think out of the box...However, Jasmine and her writer Bhavani Iyer manage to whip up only a half-baked, predictable plot ridden with clichés.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Nil Battey Sannata (2016) It is gratifying to watch something unpretentious in times when masala films are stooping to entertain. ‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Meeruthiya Gangsters (2015) Meeruthiya Gangsters has flashes of Quadri's brilliance, but the underwhelming script squanders all potential.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet M Cream (2014) Though brimming with raw energy, the narrative lacks vision to use it right.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Love Games (2016) The oohs and aahs are limited to the pain of watching the film. This one is an opportunity lost. Even the brightest of ideas go in vain because of bad execution. Love Games is a classic example of it.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Luv U Alia (2015) If you at all want to watch this film, go for the original. The dubbed version is no fun.‐ The Times of India

2/5 57% Laal Rang (2016) Laal Rang is half-baked and unconvincing. Despite the grit, it never becomes a riveting film.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Kajarya (2013) With so much going for the film, it isn't so faultless. Technical glitches aside, the story meanders in the second hour. The men are singularly villainified! You will be moved in many scenes but that doesn't culminate into a wholesome viewing experience.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Jugni (2016) Despite its freshness, the film fails to create an impact. It is hard to be affected by it due to its lack of depth.‐ The Times of India

2/5 0% Great Grand Masti (2016) It could've been a lot funnier with some better writing.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Fredrick (2016) For those who survive, a dialogue from the film will resound - 'Sometimes stupid things work'. Well, we daresay, they don't.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Fever (2016) You wish the writer-director had used some logic; the film wouldn't have been this silly.‐ The Times of India

3/5 71% Dhanak (2015) Even though Dhanak stays mysterious till its last scene, it gets too repetitive to hold your interest. Its soulful music, heartfelt style of narration and of course, delightful kids can't make this half-baked story soar.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Dear Dad (2016) Dear Dad deserves a watch simply for the profound point it makes about accepting people for who they are and loving them unconditionally.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Chudail Story (2016) Skip this one. It will suck the love for horror films out of you.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Chauranga (2015) Chauranga is neither provocative nor skillful in its portrayal. Though its last scene ushers in a ray of hope to nullify the haunting gory glimpses from the film, it never soars high enough to affect you.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 56% Angry Indian Goddesses (2015) Alas, the story is never supported by a solid screenplay. The film's pace is a problem and though things gear up in the second half, it ends as a loopy mess. ‐ The Times of India

2/5 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) Culminating into a horrendously gore-filled climax, this shallow movie offers nothing new and is infuriatingly tiresome to sit through.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 31% Love, Rosie (2015) Love, Rosie is quaint comfort-cinema that makes for an amiable watch.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 31% Wild Card (2015) With an unsurprising climax, weak story and repetitive action, the film fails to be half as good as a regular Statham gag must mandatorily be.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) It is predictable but that's not such a bad thing when done right. Our hero learns his lesson and manages to 'make his mark'. The same cannot be said about the film that, nevertheless, is a delight to watch.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 67% The Danish Girl (2015) You wish the film was less conventional in its approach, but it delivers so much that you can barely complain. ‐ The Times of India

3/5 47% The 33 (2015) This is a plain biopic that has its heart in the right place but doesn't deliver anything extraordinary.‐ The Times of India

3/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) With Professor Xavier reminding Magneto that there is good in him, a scene from the luminous First Class flashes, making you wish you were watching that one instead. This is strictly for the fans!‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 36% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) This is strictly popcorn entertainment which is good while it lasts but offers nothing to take back home.‐ The Times of India

3/5 57% Me Before You (2016) It is hard to appreciate a narrative that can only skim the surface but then again Emilia and Sam's chemistry makes you buy into their cozy world.‐ The Times of India

2/5 27% Warcraft (2016) This dreadfully boring film ends with the hope of a sequel. It's time to introduce the makers to John Lennon. 'Make love, not war...'‐ The Times of India

3/5 79% The Conjuring 2 (2016) Even with its glitches, The Conjuring 2 gets one thing right; it scares the hell out of you.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 33% Baaghi (2016) Shraddha and Tiger are earnest and director Sabbir Khan's efforts show, but the focus is not on making a good film. Just winsome action suffices for the makers.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Global Baba (2017) Global Baba is subversive but doesn't have an inventive streak. It points out problems without delving deeper or providing a solution. This one is just old wine in an old bottle!‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 46% Free State of Jones (2016) The film has all the makings of a fascinating drama but the half-baked plot turns [out] to be too problematic.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Shorgul (2016) Is the film gritty? No. Is it emotional? No. Is the love story worth the bloodshed? No. Is it worth your money? You know the answer.‐ The Times of India

4/5 91% Birdman (2014) It's a riveting portrayal of a fading superhero star who is used as a prop to understand the workings of prestige, power games and how fame's intoxication can soon wear out into futility and redundancy.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 77% Goosebumps (2015) The celluloid rendering of RL Stine's Goosebumps is a delightful feat.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 46% No Escape (2015) There is no escaping the fact that No Escape, despite all the bludgeoning, is a guilty pleasure you'll be tempted to take. The loopy script ridden with shameful cliches ends up taking a backseat, as you get on this roller-coaster ride.‐ The Times of India

3/5 41% She's Funny That Way (2015) She's Funny That Way is a charming little film which benefits from its quaint milieu.‐ The Times of India
