T-Meter Title | Year
96% First Cow (2020) Kelly Reichardt brings her fine-grained mastery in this frontier tale of male friendship. - Film Companion EDIT

46% Pari (2018) This is risky territory for a horror film, especially when the film has succeeded in keeping its monster out of sight through a sound effect trick. [But] director Prosit Roy does something clever... - Film Companion EDIT

80% Ek Thi Daayan (2013) [The] childhood part of the story has some of the most terrifying scenes, including a hide-and-seek sequence that racks up the tension, and a pretty well-done ritualistic black magic sequence it culminates in. - Film Companion EDIT

71% Bhoot (Ghost House) (2003) No other city gives off this sense of isolation as strongly as Mumbai, where each apartment is an island. Varma's signature low-angle camera works well with the spatial angularity of the flat... - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Manichithrathazhu (1993) The fact that there's a reasonable scientific explanation to all of this only makes it even scarier. - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Raat (1992) Horror is a really tropey genre and Varma mostly sticks by the rules, but he knows how to use them effectively. - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Gehrayee (1980) Gehrayee is a relatively less known Hindi horror film, and one of the best ones. Like many good horror films, it shows the triumph of superstition over rationality... - Film Companion EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Goopy gawaiya bagha bajaiya (The World of Goopi and Bagha) (2014) The film was completed six years ago. But it's so unique in its visual style, that it still looks unlike anything we have seen before. - Film Companion EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Long Live Brij Mohan (2018) The result feels like a film that was made not because the director had an irresistible itch to tell the story but because crime capers based in North India, filled with sex and swear words, are supposed to be cool. - Film Companion EDIT

90% Budhia Singh: Born To Run (2016) Budhia Singh may be sincere and well-intentioned, but it is far from an engaging film. - Livemint EDIT

97% Spotlight (2015) It is a non-showy paean to print reportage as much as it is a deeply affecting human drama. - The Hindu EDIT

No Score Yet Junooniyat (2016) The acting is uniformly bad. - The Hindu EDIT

90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) In superhero movies, we look for big moments, flamboyance and humour. Civil War does all those things right. It cracks an inside-joke and makes it work for even those who aren't clued into things. - The Hindu EDIT

95% Eye In The Sky (2016) Eye in the Sky gets tiring time to time, but its solid plot is good enough to keep it going. - The Hindu EDIT

29% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) At least there was a sinister surrealism in Tim Burton's Batman movies or a camp value to the ones starring George Clooney. This one is just annoyingly mediocre. - The Hindu EDIT
