2.5/5 No Score Yet Flight (2020) ...from the way this tale's shaped up to the way the makers have executed it on screen, we would say it shouldn't have left the runway in the first place... - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 9% The Girl on the Train (2021) The Girl On The Train is an earnest effort at reconstructing what is perceived as a cult-classic-in-the-making and the hard work the entire cast & crew has put in is palpable. - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 29% Kaagaz (2021) Kaagaz could have been the go-to movie for those seeking a burst of inspiration, but it ends up being a uni-dimensional masterclass on one man's acting prowess. - The Times of India EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Durgamati: The Myth (2020) Durgamati does have a lesson or two to impart but the narrative and its storytelling technique is so bland that it slips through the cracks. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 71% Trolls World Tour (2020) Once again, 'Trolls Word Tour' reiterates what we have known all along but some of us chose to ignore or may have forgotten: music is the universal language of the universe. - The Times of India EDIT

2.5/5 69% Most Wanted (2020) Olivier has said that if not for Victor Malarek, he may never have returned to Canada or be able to tell his side of the story. Unfortunately, none of these sentiments shine through in its visual representation. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 50% Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari (2020) All said and done, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhaari is a witty satire - on the gori-kaali hangover, what qualifies as good or bad behaviour in today's world and how little soothsayers know about marriages. - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 44% Khaali Peeli (2020) It derails every once in a while and you wonder - quite empathetically - why! Then again, if you are missing your regular dose of the larger-than-life heroes on celluloid, Khaali Peeli is the turn you take - samajla na? - The Times of India EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Sadak 2 (2020) We don't know where to begin with: the dialogues are dated and over the top. - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 57% Lootcase (2019) The 'loot' wasn't bad; it's just the execution that didn't work out too well for the gang. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 73% Gulabo Sitabo (2020) The message is short and simple: that it's okay to desire a lot in life but extreme greed often doesn't land you in the right place - whether it's a person's heart, house or mahal. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 50% English Medium (Angrezi Medium) (2020) There are some fantastic moments in the film, and sharply written scenes between the characters, too, which in turn prove to be the highlights of this drama. - The Times of India EDIT

4.5/5 93% Thappad (2020) Thappad is not just a film aimlessly ranting about borderline domestic violence; it brings to light the years of conditioning that a woman is subjected to by her own family and society that she lives in. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 92% Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2020) SMZS will give small-town parents the much needed nudge, and maybe, in the distant future, they will have the strength to accept their offsprings for who they are...for now, watch it for the performances and the 'chaska' of love. - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 50% Shikara (2020) As a love story, it works at some level, but in the bigger picture, this old-school romance doesn't really grip you and keep you engaged for too long. - The Times of India EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Gul Makai (2020) True, the subject of this biographical piece is fascinating but, H.E Amjad Khan's take on the sudden upspring of insurgency and the Yousafzai scion's subsequent victory does not translate onto the big screen. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 96% A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2020) The visuals and effects that one gets to see on screen are top-notch and the fact that it is a tightly edited script (only 86 minutes long) makes this film an ocular delight to witness. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 10% Street Dancer 3 (2020) If not for the tory, watch it for the love of dance. And, get ready to groove and move! - The Times of India EDIT

2.5/5 21% Like a Boss (2020) To sum it up, the experience of watching Like A Boss is like revisiting high school in a not-so-nostalgic way. - The Times of India EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Bhangra Paa Le (2020) Apart from the decent performances of its lead actors and a high-spirited soundtrack, Bhangra Paa Le has nothing new to offer. - The Times of India EDIT

2/5 14% The Body (2019) Since it is confined within the walls of a mortuary and spans over a period of eight hours, this murder mystery tends to lose its grip over the audience early on. - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 63% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) All-in-all, Motherless Brooklyn works, thanks to its ensemble cast and their individual talents. Sadly, the story line does not contribute as much as it should have. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 57% Aladdin (2019) The film - sans its minor hiccups - is congenial and establishes the 'feel-good' factor from frame one and maintains it till the curtains are drawn. - The Times of India EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Goopy gawaiya bagha bajaiya (The World of Goopi and Bagha) (2014) The film is actually a refreshing take on that subject, presented from the standpoint of two naïve, yet loveable musicians. The best part about the film is how relevant it is to our current scenario. - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 67% Pihu (2018) This unusual thriller has all the elements you'd expect from a film that can attain cult status. - The Times of India EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Jack and Dil (2018) Unless these three reasonably good artistes have big debts to clear, I don't see a reason as to why anyone in their right minds would say yes to a chaotic rom-com like Jack & Dil. - The Times of India EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet FryDay (2018) FryDay is one weekend party you shouldn't consider attending, even if your name is on the guest list. - The Times of India EDIT

2.5/5 12% Peppermint (2018) Jennifer Garner shouldering Peppermint is perhaps a regrettable decision and some may agree that making this done-to-death revenge saga in the first place defies logic by all means. - The Times of India EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Nawabzaade (2018) Nawabzaade is your run-of-the-mill romcom that brings absolutely nothing new to the table. - The Times of India EDIT

2.5/5 17% Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain (2018) The problem is not with acting or cinematography, it is the script that makes what could have been an exceptional tale of loss of love, a run-of-the-mill Bollywood masala flick. - The Times of India EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Hamne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya (2018) The intent is good and so are the actors in it. But, the script and direction, especially cinematography, is below average. - The Times of India EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Kuldip Patwal: I Didn't Do It! (2017) It is a story that tries to take on the system by bringing to light its wrongdoings, but drowns in its own mediocrity instead. - The Times of India EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Nirdosh (2018) While the glam quotient was in place, acting, direction and story clearly were not. - The Times of India EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet Union Leader (2017) Despite having an element of pragmatism in the film, Union Leader crumbles towards the end because of poor execution, thus making it another run-of-the-mill movie about rich versus the poor. - The Times of India EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Shaadi Abhi Baaki Hai (2017) At two hours of runtime, this Shaadi feels like it won't ever get over! - The Times of India EDIT

3/5 100% Anaarkali Of Aarah (2017) Just like any other female-centric film of recent times, Anarkali sets foot on the unexplored territories of revenge and redemption, only this time, she is both the damsel in distress and her knight in shining armour. - Deccan Chronicle EDIT
