Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Love Per Square Foot (2018) The endeavour has obvious limitations, but chemistry between the leads and the strong performances by the supporting cast help us ignore that.‐ Scroll.in

40% Aiyaary (2018) The filmmaker's sharp ear for repartee nudges Aiyaary toward something resembling a big statement on bribery and fraud in the Army..there's palpable and relatable outrage at the rot within the system, but the response is inchoate, not particularly clever.‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz (2018) Some of the drama has the intimacy of the video that is best viewed on the smartphone. There isn't much of a plot to stretch over 116 minutes, but there are enough cute moments of youthful angst and Kolkata chic to prevent a total washout.‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Aapla Manus (2018) Maruti's smugness at having cracked the crime is as dull to watch as is Rajwade's disinterest in filming the story as anything but a televised play.‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 (2016) The movie is too scattershot and puerile to realise its potential.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2018
100% Pad Man (2018) The most radical aspect of Pad Man is the fact that the movie exists in the first place. It is rare, indeed unthinkable, to imagine an A-list Bollywood production about a subject like menstruation. ‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Kuldip Patwal: I Didn't Do It! (2017) The courtroom scenes are particularly egregious, in no small measure because of Raima Sen's hamminess and Gulshan Devaiah's false moustache. Deepak Dobriyal tries to breathe life into his common man, but his efforts are as successful as the movie itself.‐ Scroll.in

91% Phantom Thread (2018) In this atelier of intense emotions, Anderson has crafted an old-fashioned romance about the very foundation of modern romance.‐ Scroll.in

70% Padmaavat (2018) Despite some drawbacks, this latest work from one of Bollywood's most skilled craftsmen is always exquisite to look at.‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Union Leader (2017) [Union Leader] never lacks in sincerity or empathy but suffers from a simplistic portrayal of labour issues.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
No Score Yet My Birthday Song (2018) My Birthday Song has just about enough meat for a short fictional film, but even that would have had to have better writing and less amateurish performances to leave traces. Even the internet has higher standards these days.‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Vodka Diaries (2018) Alert viewers will guess the big twist in Vodka Diaries within the first five minutes. What is to be done with the remaining 113?‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Kaalakaandi (2018) Despite some clever conversational humour and sight gags, these strands struggle to leave an imprint and only Shehnaz Treasury gets into the spirit of things.‐ Scroll.in

51% Downsizing (2017) Payne and co-writer Jim Taylor don't tack enough inches on to what could have been a nifty idea for our greed-filled times.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
100% Paddington 2 (2018) The lightweight material and charmingly quaint depiction of a London that surely exists only in colouring books prove as hard to resist as Paddington's warm brown eyes.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
83% The Brawler (Mukkabaaz) (2017) Kashyap's movies are littered with superbly written and performed sequences that do not always cohere into a convincing whole. In trying to create a socially aware entertainer through Mukkabaaz, the director throws too many punches.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
77% All the Money in the World (2017) The latest movie from the prolific and indefatigable Ridley Scott pivots on a screenplay that is always on the money.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2018
55% The Greatest Showman (2017) The movie is held together by a superb central performance by Jackson, who embodies Barnum's can-do spirit and seething social aspirations, and the music by John Debney and John Trapnese.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2018
67% Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) The explosive Khan-Kaif combination turns out to be a damp squib, undone by staggering ambition and matching incompetence.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2017
60% Monsoon Shootout (2013) The movie works perfectly as a neo-noir thriller set in a city where nothing goes according to plan. One moment has several scenarios in Monsoon Shootout, but the outcome - smart writing and direction - remains the same throughout.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2017
No Score Yet Gangoobai (2012) Writer and director Priya Krishnaswamy keeps the proceedings simple and the emotions even simpler. Joshi gives the role her all, moving dexterously from inhibited maid amid the haute couture crowd to wise old woman.‐ Livemint
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2017
No Score Yet Dear Dad (2016) The movie wants to say something poignant and profound about the need for sons to accept their father's decisions, but it doesn't have the material to do so.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
79% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) There's just about enough tennis and not enough psychology in the 107-minute running time, the numerous pensive close-ups notwithstanding.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
40% Daawat-e-Ishq (2014) Daawat-e-Ishq is opposed to dowry but it also wants elaborately choreographed songs. And tender moments between the attractive but dull leads. And comic sequences. And likable characters who do grotesque things. Only a few flavours survive the mishmash.‐ Livemint

100% Budhia Singh: Born To Run (2016) This sports biopic wants to be black and white, but it's actually a nice shade of grey.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2017
85% Wonder (2017) Chbosky swaddles the film in warmth and unending optimism. He extracts pitch-perfect performances from the cast and dispenses with lachrymose sentiments.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
20% Firangi (2017) At 160 minutes, Rajiev Dhingra's movie is highly overstretched, and squanders its comic potential despite having a comedian as its hero.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
No Score Yet Dark Wind (Kadvi Hawa) (2017) The story is too sketchy even for its 99-minute running time. Hedu's blindness is a clumsy attempt to evoke sympathy for his plight and an on-the-nose metaphor for his ability to divine what others cannot.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2017
57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) The new movie has been handsomely shot and produced, but the raw punch produced by Christie in her extended climax is missing.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2017
97% Coco (2017) Lee Unkrich's animated drama makes good use of its Mexico setting.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2017
71% Ajji (2017) Outrage over the rape of children is easily provoked, but it takes hard work to make a movie about the justice that is due to them. Ajji takes the easy way out.‐ Scroll.in

86% An Insignificant Man (2016) [Insignificant Man] is an engaging and deftly crafted documentary.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
83% Tumhari Sulu (2017) [Tumhari Sulu] is attuned to the sensitivities of the challenges faced by working women. The film is packed with perfectly pitched characters.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
86% Qarib Qarib Singlle (2017) Irrfan's breezy performance is one of his most relaxed yet. Despite being painfully low on psychology, Yogi leaves an impression for his witty banter and infectious sangfroid. He has the best lines, and he belts them out with elan.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
40% Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana (2017) [Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana] sets up its plot with confidence and coherence before going off the rails in spectacular and painful fashion.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
No Score Yet Calendar Girls (2015) Low on surprises, shoddily made and poorly acted, this latest expose indicates that its filmmaker is running on empty.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2017
No Score Yet Waiting (2016) Waiting is too sparsely plotted to realise its ambitions, but Menon, who has co-written the film with James Ruzicka, does raise important questions on the dilemmas faced by the family members of comatose patients. ‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
No Score Yet Ribbon (2016) The movie falls short as a study of modern marriage because of Karan's absence, but it is far more effective as an examination of contemporary parenting.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
100% Ittefaq (2017) A 107-minute thriller without distracting songs and subplots that actually works? Yes, Bollywood can.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Taika Waititi's highly self-aware Thor: Ragnarok is a fitting response to the pomposity and pretentiousness that mark most movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
No Score Yet Mantostaan (2016) The acting is largely amateurish, the scenes are poorly paced and directed, and the production is far too tacky for the big screen.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
0% Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon (2015) The movie's sexual politics prove that the desire to let men have all the fun hasn't yet disappeared.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
No Score Yet Saala Khadoos (2016) Saala Khadoos is actually a love story, but there is enough boxing here for fans of the sport. The title refers to the attitude of its rude coach, but the movie belongs to his headstrong pupil.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
No Score Yet Poorna (2017) Priya's carefree spirit, stifled by convention, and Poorna's hard-earned courage, bolstered by Priya's sacrifice, elevate a standard-issue celebration of achievement and national glory into something tender, moving and actually inspiring.‐ Scroll.in

No Score Yet Main Aur Charles (2015) Main Aur Charles should really have been about the poster, not the case file.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
No Score Yet Wedding Pullav (2015) This latest iteration of the big fat Punjabi wedding movie has nothing new to say or offer.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
20% Hate Story 3 (2015) The songs are available on YouTube, and perhaps a movie of this flimsiness belongs there too.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
67% Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods (Astérix: Le domaine des dieux) (2014) Die-hard fans won't care, while new converts might wonder what the fuss is about.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
No Score Yet Buddha In A Traffic Jam (2016) The biggest protest to be made about this 115-minute film is on grounds of bad taste.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2017
No Score Yet Traffic (2011) In this movie's scheme of relative morality and celebration of entitlement and privilege, nobody stops to ask whether such efforts would have been taken for a poorer and less connected patient.‐ Scroll.in
