No Score Yet Coffee Bloom (2015) An excellent example of how some filmmakers end up making pretentious, self indulgent, unwatchable movies in the name of independent cinema. - Mid Day EDIT

11% Hate Story 3 (2015) Poor dialogues and amateurish execution makes the characters look more caricaturish than believable. - Mid Day EDIT

57% Hunterrr (2015) Watch it if brazen in your face is enough to titillate you. If not, let's wait for a more mature film dealing with sex. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Global Baba (2017) The film with its tongue firmly in its cheek content, gives a timely, strong message of how blind faith and mob mentality can be easily manipulated by anybody in this country. - Mid Day EDIT

4/5 96% The Lunchbox (2014) Watch this film for the fuzzy, heart-melting feeling that it will give you through the two-odd hour duration. But also watch it for the hidden charm, the stoic way the protagonists face the problem with their own brand of positivity and optimism. - Mid Day EDIT

55% Shaadi Ke Side Effects (2014) The film is fun but shallow, nevertheless. A pity, because with a subject of this kind, the possibilities were immense. - Mid Day EDIT

69% Gunday (2014) It might have worked better if one, there was no incessant, absolutely irrelevant background music assaulting the senses, and two, if the lead actors were asked to relax a bit and some humour was infused into the storyline. - Mid Day EDIT

4/5 64% RamLeela (2013) It is Deepika and Ranvir's sizzling chemistry that does full justice to Bhansali's passionate story. - Mid Day EDIT

100% Filmistaan (2014) A story with great potential, it could have been better. But watch it anyway because its simplicity is beautiful. - Scroll.in EDIT

1.5/5 14% Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (2016) It is to Hooda's credit that he gives a convincing performance even in this mish-mash of mush. - Mid Day EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
2/5 29% Dear Dad (2016) Dear Dad is a one-line story that has been stretched to 100 minutes and beyond, as if to test the audience's patience. - Mid Day EDIT

57% Golmaal Again (2017) Is it entertaining? Oh yes. Is it funny? The first half is, though the energy dips in the second half. - Scroll.in EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
90% Sholay (1975) This is not a review of Sholay. This is to reiterate the greatness of the epic film. - Mid Day EDIT

36% Judwaa 2 (2017) Judwaa 2 keeps you entertained. Sajid-Farhad, master writers in the silly dialogue department, come up with numerous chuckle-worthy gags. - Scroll.in EDIT

No Score Yet Baadshaho (2017) Life is too short to waste almost three hours on this film. - Scroll.in EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Shorgul (2016) Outdated in its approach, and tacky in its handling, Shorgul disappoints on more counts than one. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 27% Phantom (2015) The climax is worth the ticket money. - Mid Day EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2016
4/5 78% Fan (2016) Right from the beginning of this thriller... it is evident why Shah Rukh Khan is needed for a film of this sort, and why only someone in his position and with his caliber could do it too. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Chaar Sahibzaade (2014) Chaar Sahibzade is a valuable lesson in history, if you are not too familiar with the history of Sikhism. - Mid Day EDIT

2/5 10% Shaandaar (Shandaar) (2015) Shaandaar chooses to kill us with clichés [rather] than charm us with its idiosyncrasies. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 22% Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) It's a fun, one-time watch. And to its credit, it is straight, simple and clear about its intentions, unlike a few 'modern' ones that begin on a woman-friendly note, but actually end up belittling them. - Mid Day EDIT

2.5/5 29% Hero (2015) Sooraj Pancholi is good in parts, but then again he is limited by his one dimensional role. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 33% Welcome Back (2015) The good thing is that this film. like its original, is totally unabashed and unpretentious about its silliness and randomness. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 38% Manjhi: The Mountain Man (2015) Nawazuddin is brilliant as Manjhi. The film is carried solely on his frail but extremely capable shoulders. - Mid Day EDIT

4/5 88% Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) Be warned. While watching Baahubali, you might have to periodically pick up your jaw off the floor. - Mid Day EDIT

2.5/5 14% Guddu Rangeela (2015) Arshad Warsi puts in a decent effort, but he's saddled with a role where he's grossly miscast. - Mid Day EDIT

3/5 29% Welcome to Karachi (2015) We all know Arshad Warsi is a competent actor and his talent shows in a particularly hilarious scene which includes a Indo-Pak cricket match. - Mid Day EDIT
Read More | Posted May 29, 2015
2.5/5 No Score Yet Surkhaab (2012) Surkhaab is perhaps one of the finest examples of those small budget films which start with a good intention of dealing with a relevant issue, but then fall into the trap of making it 'safe' to ensure a box office hit. - Mid Day EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2015
3.5/5 57% Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015) Once in a while, an actor overpowers the movie, and Kangana Ranaut does that with this one. It takes a lot of effort to take your eyes off this girl, who dazzles with dual performances. - Mid Day EDIT
Read More | Posted May 21, 2015
4/5 82% Qissa: The Ghost Is A Lonely Traveller (2014) Qissa is a brutally honest and shocking portrayal of the psyche of individuals who were unsettled during the Partition of 1947. - Mid Day EDIT
