Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
40% Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana (2017) Rajkummar Rao is earnest and tries to give his best to a film that doesn't deserve it.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
No Score Yet Begum Jaan (2017) Each scene feels consciously staged than unprompted and the flow from one sequence to the next is perennially jerky leading to way too much chaos on- screen.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Phullu (2017) All that Phullu manages to elicit are yawns.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) It's the parents, along with a host of other characters around the lead protagnists, who inject life into BKB.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
17% Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017) JHMS marks a thumping return to love at its most banal, hackneyed and exasperating. There is not much in the silly situations and trite conversations to get you invested or interested in the lovers. ‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Ribbon (2016) Sandilya makes one realise that there could be a film lurking in each of our ordinary, insipid lives-even in something as banal as the hiring and firing of a maid.‐ The Hindu

100% Ittefaq (2017) The new Ittefaq, despite making a marketing strategy out of a spoiler, just isn't thrilling enough.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
100% Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) The film literally lives up to its name-making you laugh and cry alternately. The narrative is interspersed with sumptuous song-'n-dance items that appear with rhythmic precision. ‐ Outlook

4/4 100% Ship Of Theseus (2012) It's a film of meditative pauses and life as many of us have felt and lived. It reaches out to the heart as well as the mind. Not the kind of film you see very often.‐ Outlook

No Score Yet Udta Punjab (2016) I came out of the screening with Balli's cries ringing harsh in my ears. They are haunting me. Still.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2016
89% Sultan (2016) The artificial divide of the interval renders the film into two distinct, disjointed halves.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2016
2/4 50% Golmaal 3 (2010) Golmaal 4, if Shetty is planning one, would need serious comic reinvention.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2016
78% Fan (2016) SRK couldn't have found a better vehicle than Fan, both as an actor and as a celebration of the highs and the lows of his own stardom.‐ The Hindu

1.5/4 38% Phantom (2015) Even if Kabir's heart was in the right place, his metaphors get highly mixed up.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2016
44% Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015) It's Salman, effortlessly charming, who saves the day and holds you to the seat.‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2015
3/4 93% Guilty (Talvar) (2015) What also works wonderfully is the film's sense of the place. Noida -- be it the residential colony, the flat or the cop station -- feels utterly real. ‐ Outlook

1.5/4 No Score Yet Singh Is Bliing (2015) Laughless and boring.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2015
1.5/4 50% Jazbaa (2015) South Korean cinema should be protesting. In his obsession with remaking Korean films in Hindi, Sanjay Gupta continues to make a hash of them.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2015
3/4 70% Algorithms (2014) The narrative moves seamlessly between the games and competitions to the boys' homes, neighbourhoods and cities. When it comes to the sport itself, the film plants you on the 64 squares.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
2.5/4 78% Drishyam (2015) Shriya, as his wife, looks way too young to carry off the role of the mother of a teen with conviction. Even the usually bankable Tabu, as the cop who locks horns with Vijay, seems strangely faded and dispassionate.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2015
2/4 92% Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) Has a 'been there, already seen in Hollywood' feel to it.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
3/4 95% Amy (2015) [Kapadia] leaves you with is an incredible feeling of sadness, irrespective of whether you knew and liked her music or not.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Papanasam (2015) Kamalahaasan, with his epic histrionics, holds the drama together. It's his film all the way and he digs into the role with relish, with Gautami giving him graceful company.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Asha Jaoar Majhe (Labour of Love) (2014) On paper it would seem difficult to pull off a film like Asha Jaoar Majhe that rests on banal daily rhythms, but Sengupta fashions a lovely tale of love in times of recession.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2015
2/4 70% ABCD 2 (2015) The 3D SFX add to the spectacle. But the third dimension serves as a gimmick rather than a thought or philosophy, as in Wim Wenders's immersive Pina.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2015
1/4 No Score Yet Hamari Adhuri Kahaani (2015) After taking a few steps forward, Bollywood returns to the familiar rut when it comes to women-centric films.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2015
3/4 100% Kaakkaa Muttai (2014) There are laughs, joys and wonderment for life's little desires.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2015
2.5/4 73% Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) A lot about DDD reminded me of Honeymoon Travels Private Limited.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2015
1/4 No Score Yet Golmaal Returns (2008) [Features] inane jokes and over-the-top, unfunny slapstick.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 27, 2015
3.5/4 83% My Name Is Khan (2010) A gentle, affecting and heart-warming film that makes you smile through your tears.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 26, 2015
2/4 No Score Yet Once Upon a Time in Mumbai (2010) OUTIM doesn't go beyond the obvious and essentially remains nothing more than a straightforward tale about how the new order takes over from the old in the underworld hierarchy.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 26, 2015
3/4 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) To think that this furious, fuming, freaky world should have been created by a man in his 70s, the same guy who warmed the cockles of our heart with Happy Feet and Babe, is unbelievable.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 22, 2015
3/4 71% Qissa: The Ghost Is A Lonely Traveller (2014) One of the most beguiling films of recent times, Qissa captivates even as it confounds.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 18, 2015
2.5/4 No Score Yet Special 26 (2013) There are times when, instead of following the film's narrative, you end up playing 'spot the mistake'.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 17, 2015
3/4 71% Kai Po Che! (2013) The backbone is the great casting by Mukesh Chhabra. Each of the handpicked actors becomes the character.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 17, 2015
2/4 87% Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) There is a compelling biopic hidden somewhere in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, about an athlete with a traumatic childhood facing up to and conquering the ghosts of his past. But the overwritten film meanders aimlessly.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 17, 2015
3/4 92% Piku (2015) A lot of Piku belongs to writer Juhi Chaturvedi, in her naturally progressive ideas and her ability to see the universal in the particular.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 15, 2015
2/4 45% Agent Vinod (2012) There is an incredible urge to run a fine comb through Agent Vinod, to straighten the several strands, trajectories, characters, locations that end up as one big clutter in the mind's eye.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 12, 2015
2/4 50% Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013) Facile, predictable and boring.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 12, 2015
1/4 No Score Yet Action Jackson (2014) How can you do a serious critique of action scenes where the hero kills with toothpicks and tomato sauce and dances awkwardly as he demolishes his enemies?‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 12, 2015
2/4 No Score Yet Dabangg (2010) Pretty much a tame and inconsequential affair.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 12, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) Life, for most of us, is a sum total of such minutiae. So is DLKH.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 11, 2015
1/4 43% Ready (2011) I was unprepared for the unadulterated gunk I had to wade through on the screen.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 8, 2015
2/4 64% Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) Overlong and plodding.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 6, 2015
3/4 83% Talaash (2012) Talaash is two different films rolled into one... While the latter is a very affecting and compelling track, the former leaves one very dissatisfied.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 5, 2015
2/4 55% Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) The best thing about Jhoom is Delhi thespian Piyush Mishra as Abhishek's sidekick. He effortlessly chews up everything and everyone when on screen. If you want to go for Jhoom watch it only for him.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 4, 2015
3/4 100% Three Idiots (2009) Raju Hirani continues with the overly moral tone that defined his previous films. But it does say something of his surefootedness and craft that you still listen to him and enjoy the many lessons he teaches you.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 4, 2015
3/4 91% Veer-Zaara (2004) The candyfloss comes mixed with the old-worldy.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 4, 2015
1/4 No Score Yet Jai Ho! Democracy (2015) The satire is far from biting, more a loud farce that gets progressively slipshod as it hurtles towards a grating slapstick of a climax.‐ Outlook
Read More | Posted May 1, 2015
2/4 100% Agneepath (2012) Agneepath is cinema of excess.‐ Outlook
