T-Meter Title | Year
3.5/5 No Score Yet Khuda Ke Liye (2007) This is a valiant effort by debutante director Mansoor; a veteran writer / director from TV and lyricist; he makes a commendable first impression. This is thankfully far removed from your typical kitsch Pak-blockbuster. - Future Movies UK EDIT

3.5/5 75% Eklavya (2007) Set in present day India, the film has a special resonance for today's world, beleaguered by hate and violence born from fanatical belief. - Future Movies UK EDIT

4.5/5 83% Guru (2007) Mani Ratnam is a master film-maker, in fact, he's probably the best. Definitely the most revered - and India's answer to Spielberg. - Future Movies UK EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Bluffmaster (2005) Energetic, fruity and fast-paced, Bluffmaster delivers a punch. Not quite a knockout, but it'll go the distance. - Future Movies UK EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Kurbaan (2009) A chilling yet appropriately tempered and charismatic antidote to your archetypal seasonal fare, Kurbaan is a gripping white knuckle ride that turns at all the right places for the ultimate thrill ride. - Future Movies UK EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Karam (2005) The film is definitely innovative, but not taut enough to be a thriller, nor engaging enough to work as a drama. The sum of all its' parts producing a disappointingly average outcome. - Future Movies UK EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Page 3 (2005) Part social commentary, part dynamic satire - Bhandarkar's take is unrelenting and ruthless, yet thoroughly entertaining. - Future Movies UK EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Waqt: The Race Against Time (2005) A Bachchan movie through and through, he slaughters Akshay in their scenes together - chewing him up and spitting him out without remorse. - Future Movies UK EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Dus (2005) Dus has fantastic production values, and is a polished product with a certain panache, but it isn't nearly as clever as it thinks it is. - Future Movies UK EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005) The film is fun, bright, mindless, yet bubbly and to be appreciated in that vain, if at all. Recommendation: Watch anything else. - Future Movies UK EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Matrubhoomi: A Nation Without Women (2003) It takes tremendous nerve to produce a movie on female infanticide, especially in as astute and brutal an incarnation such as this. - Future Movies UK EDIT

4/5 50% Ghajini (2008) As [Aamir Khan] explodes with grief and then just as quickly forgets it, it's touching, emotional, and all too believable. Think amnesia on steroids, via Lee Strasberg. - Future Movies UK EDIT

3.5/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) Despite its excessive running time, and slightly meandering narrative, Man of Steel has definitely earned its place amongst recent comic-book adaptations, standing tall in the DC / Marvel cinematic universe. - Future Movies UK EDIT

8/10 68% Public Enemies (2009) As always, no one does a bank heist quite like Mann, but as one of the most under-rated director's from the West, very few can tell a story as rich and complete as him either. - Future Movies UK EDIT
