86% Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi (2019) Seema Pahwa brings the warmth of a middle class Lucknow family in her directorial debut. Starring acting greats such as Naseeruddin Shah and Supriya Pathak, the film is a easily digested slice-of-life treat. - Hindustan Times EDIT

20% Love Aaj Kal (2020) Imtiaz Ali Imtiaz invites you into the world of imperfect people, complex situations and dysfunctional relationships, but fails to weave it all together despite good performances by Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan. - Hindustan Times EDIT

92% Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2020) Ayushmann Khurrana stars in an important film that talks about an important subject conveyed in the simplest manner without sounding preachy at any given point. - Hindustan Times EDIT

93% Thappad (2020) Taapsee Pannu and Anubhav Sinha's film will stay with you and make you question the status quo. One of the most powerful films to come out this year. - Hindustan Times EDIT

No Score Yet BHOOT - Part One: The Haunted Ship (2020) Vicky Kaushal does his job effectively but is let down by a hackneyed script and a predictable plot. - Hindustan Times EDIT

50% Shikara (2020) The film touches you as Vidhu Vinod Chopra does justice to the direction, though a much hard-hitting narrative is something we continue to wait for. - Hindustan Times EDIT

44% Malang (2020) The plot ends up looking like a mockery of a subject that needed a better storytelling. - Hindustan Times EDIT

10% Street Dancer 3 (2020) The film's plot takes so many twists and turns that you are not sure if you are watching the same dance-off you paid good money for two hours ago... - Hindustan Times EDIT

94% Panga (2020) Kangana Ranaut excels as a kabaddi player on a comeback trail in this slice-of-life drama that puts focus on a mother's aspirations. - Hindustan Times EDIT

73% Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (2020) Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan's film is a complete package. It's magnificent, high on visual effects and has powerful action backed by rock solid performances. - Hindustan Times EDIT

88% Chhapaak (2020) Meghna Gulzar's film is all heart as it takes on the scourge of acid attacks. Deepika Padukone shows the mastery on her craft as she emerges as Malti. - Hindustan Times EDIT

No Score Yet Bhangra Paa Le (2020) Dheeraj Rattan's story lacks depth and debut director Sneha Taurani fails to grip you with her work. She has tried to weave the traditional folk dance with an urban story, but she needed a far stronger and crisper script... - Hindustan Times EDIT

75% Good Newwz (2019) We get a talented cast led by Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan, a story that resonates with parents and those desperate to begin their family, and a delightful mix of comedy and emotions that never gets preachy. - Hindustan Times EDIT

50% Mardaani 2 (2019) Debutant Vishal Jethwa as the mysterious and egotist villain is spot-on. It's not easy to deliver such a confident performance, especially when you are cast opposite someone as seasoned as Rani but Vishal holds his own. - Hindustan Times EDIT

14% The Body (2019) Emraan Hashmi's comeback to murder mysteries is a lacklustre affair. The film, also starring Rishi Kapoor and Sobhita Dhulipala, suffers due to its dry narrative. - Hindustan Times EDIT

43% Panipat (2019) Overall, Panipat is an honest attempt at recreating the war that we only read in history books until now. It's a tribute to the Maratha community in its truest form and even it was shorter by an hour, it could have had the same impact. - Hindustan Times EDIT

43% Pati Patni Aur Woh (2019) The whole premise that a guy can so easily fool his wife and the woman he loves outside his marriage is so troubling. - Hindustan Times EDIT

77% Bala (2019) Ayushmann Khurrana delivers a hilarious film that is also empathetic. Yami Gautam, Bhumi Pednekar and a talented ensemble cast buoy up the Amar Kaushik film. - Hindustan Times EDIT

14% Ujda Chaman (2019) Sunny Singh's film can be lauded for picking a real subject, but the film fritters away its advantages and gives us a half-baked product. - Hindustan Times EDIT

71% The Sky Is Pink (2019) The Sky Is Pink is a heartwarming story narrated with a balanced mix of emotions. While the performances shine, the story, too, leaves an impact. - Hindustan Times EDIT

42% The Zoya Factor (2019) Though the central premise of the film is thin, it's the feel good factor that holds your attention. - Hindustan Times EDIT

50% Dream Girl (2019) A must-watch mainly for Ayushmann's laudable performance, and of course a heavy dose of laughter to break free from your boring and busy lives. - Hindustan Times EDIT
