Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Ari Aster's directorial debut 'Hereditary' is truly an original that moves slowly yet completely and totally terrifies you when you least expect it to.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Hope Aur Hum (2018) A tighter script could have helped, but for now the little gags in the film work just fine.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet The Wishing Tree (2017) The film relies a lot on animation in all scenes connected to the Wishing Tree, the quality of which leaves a lot to be desired and lacks consistency.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Omertà (2018) The director has not invested much into how Omar plans his complex actions or what drove him to such abhorrence. So while Mehta gets the mood right, and Rajkummar works wonders with his limited material, Omerta fails to stir you emotionally.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Subedar Joginder Singh (2018) The fact that the filmmaker has introduced innocent humour in the film in both the army and civilian life is commendable, though the effort does seems a bit naive and stretched at times...But as far as Indian war films go, the effects are superior.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Nanu Ki Jaanu (2018) Neither the performances nor an ever changing storyline, where newer characters are introduced, help pick it up. An anticlimactic, emotional ending further seals the fate of this film.‐ The Times of India

3/5 71% Mercury (2018) As thrillers go, this is one of the better ones that we have seen this year. ‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 35% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw doesn't quite get there as far as slasher films go. It's a weak imitation of the previous films but it's not the weakest in the franchise.‐ The Times of India

2/5 40% Shab (2017) While it is a mature film about human relationships, it is all over the place. There are so many emotional interactions between characters, you almost need a flowchart to keep track.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Mirror Game (2016) Mental illness is used to make the film more 'exciting', which is insensitive and doesn't work.‐ The Times of India

No Score Yet Moh Maya Money (2016) Although it's a well made crime thriller, there are a few loose ends which could have been tied up well. The effect is that the end leaves you wanting more.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Mantra (2017) A crowd funded effort, Mantra is a brave film that delves into the complex world of urban relationships and poses the right questions.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Mahayoddha Rama (2016) Considering it was made eight years ago, the animation is good. However, in 2016, it leaves you wanting for more.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Life Ki Aisi Ki Taisi (2017) In times when big budget behemoths rule the screens, it would have been interesting to see a small budget, dark comedy work. But Life Ki Aisi Ki Taisi does not pack enough of a punch to stand on its own.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Love Day: Pyaar Ka Din (2017) With peppy music, bearable visuals and a hackneyed story line, this is two hours plus of juvenile attempts at humour.‐ The Times of India

2/5 42% The Valley (2018) While the filmmaker is asking the right questions when it comes to teen suicides, but the manner in which she says it is not that interesting.‐ The Times of India

3/5 24% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) From a Clint Eastwood directorial, one expects better. Alas, this one is relegated to being merely an experiment in casting.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz (2018) Kuch Bheege Alfaaz successfully manages to show how love in the time of social media can stay relevant. The Kolkata of trams and bridges, fish markets and open parks is shown in a stunning manner by Onir.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 95% Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) (2015) This colourful joyride is one that we insist you make and see the world through the eyes of a little boy.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai (2017) A clear case of riding the wave of women-centric films, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai has an overly simplistic approach at dealing with serious issues that concern women. ‐ The Times of India

1/5 No Score Yet Jattu Engineer (2017) A lowbrow slapstick comedy, most gags in Jattu Engineer are centered entirely around the characters stuttering, stammering and passing wind loudly. ‐ The Times of India

1/5 No Score Yet Medal (2018) With stock MMA fight shots taken, there are a total of three fights shown in the film. The sound is so unsynchronised, that you hear punches which Jeetu didn't even throw. The performances are more comical than serious, and not in a good way.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet My Birthday Song (2018) The production values are top notch and so is the music. While the narrative may get a bit repetitive, like how birthday songs can get, maybe that's what the director intended.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet 1921 (2018) Even if you are weak-hearted, this one will not scare you for too long.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) While it dithers in what it wants to eventually say, it is certainly a fun watch.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
1/5 No Score Yet Modi Kaka Ka Gaon (2017) Almost all actors struggle with even delivering their lines. With a weak story and a choppy editing, this is definitely not the film that can define Prime Minister Modi.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
No Score Yet Journey Of Bhangover (2017) With a completely guessable end, this film actually leaves you with an actual, live hangover. If you are looking for a funny flick to catch on the weekend, this is not it.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2017
1/5 No Score Yet My Friend's Dulhania (2017) While there is a semblance of a story, there is nothing in the film that supports it. When it comes to the screenplay, the film baffles you.‐ The Times of India

3/5 22% Hare Krishna! The Mantra, The Movement And The Swami Who Started It All (2017) Ihere is no real drama and it comes out a bit flat. If you're a follower though, this one is for you.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Fuddu (2016) Heavier on visuals than emotions, it delivers no message nor answers any questions. Too thin to be a slice of life, this one.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha (2017) The film belongs to the nineties, which was a simpler time when audience may have bought such an absurdist premise. But with a script that suffers from a serious case of ADD, you will just be mildly amused. ‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Fukrey Returns (2017) Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani with director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba have created a successful franchise, and there is ample scope to make a Fukrey 3, but this time, we hope it doesn't take them four years to do so.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Coffee With D (2017) It could have been good film, but the undoing of Coffee With D is its post-production. The film is let down by shoddy editing and a bad dubbing job where entire sentences are muted and out of sync.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 29% Suburbicon (2017) A film with a wonderfully complex first half deserves a second one that matches. The banal simplicity is what is off-putting. Still, Suburbicon is worth a watch for the spectacular performances.‐ The Times of India

1.5/5 No Score Yet Viraam (2017) With insipid performances, a very slow pace and a plot that you can smell miles away, Viraam is a film that could have been better if it avoided the cliched treatment that is often given to Hindi films. ‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2017
1/5 No Score Yet Tera Intezaar (2017) With weak performances, forced VFX and a badly structured script, Tera Intezaar is a film where you will be waiting desperately for the end credits to roll. To say it's a long wait for that is no understatement.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 63% The Foreigner (2017) Go along with Jackie with this ride. He may not come out as a super hero always, in every scene, but its heartening to watch him try. ‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Dark Wind (Kadvi Hawa) (2017) The chemistry between Ranveer and Sanjay is darkly entertaining. You may even feel guilty while enjoying a moment of black humour in scenes between the two actors.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
1.5/5 No Score Yet Muzaffar Nagar: The Burning Love (2017) In the acting department, almost everyone gives an over the top performance. There is hardly a semblance of screenplay and the music is generic.‐ The Times of India

4/5 86% An Insignificant Man (2016) The mark of a good documentary is that you forget that the events unfolding on the screen are not fiction. An Insignificant Man achieves that and even surpasses it. ‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 74% Trolls (2016) Trolls is a fail-safe film that young parents can take their kids to, and hopefully enjoy a few chuckles themselves.‐ The Times of India

3/5 14% Collateral Beauty (2016) The play on the term 'collateral damage' fails to hit home as the movie takes a long-winded route to get there.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2017
3.5/5 72% Sing (2016) Most animated movies try to deliver a message and end up sounding preachy. Sing too, has one -- once you hit rock bottom, there's nowhere else to go but up. The sheer heart with which its characters live and convey the sentiment, is incredible.‐ The Times of India

3/5 17% Incarnate (2016) [The] performances make the human characters far more interesting than the demonic ones.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2017
2.5/5 63% Unfriended (2015) You end up following illogical plot points, and want to see just how the story ends. The pay-off is goofy, sure. But it's still a good film to catch up on a late night with friends over.‐ The Times of India

3/5 36% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) It's a delight to see Alice escape by the skin of her teeth more than half a dozen times, with each of those close-shaves being truly thrilling, and the 3D makes them all the more exciting. ‐ The Times of India

4/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Quote not available.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
4/5 88% Jackie (2016) A disturbingly intimate portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy, 'Jackie' is a film that unmasks her in such a tender yet objective manner; you feel like an intruder who is tailing the first lady of America and a widow in her most trying time. ‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
2.5/5 17% CHIPS (2017) A formulaic film, there are no real surprises here and it fails to cash in its chips as far as holding your interest is concerned.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
3.5/5 33% A Dog's Purpose (2017) If you're a dog-lover, the makers will have you eating out of their hands in no time. If you're a cat-person, there is still enough humour and heart in it to enjoy it with family.‐ The Times of India
