T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 No Score Yet Fever (2016) Fever calls itself a thriller, but there is nothing remotely thrilling about this movie. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2.5/5 36% Phillauri (2017) Phillauri has potential, and it has the audience's goodwill, and yet, the film manages to delight only in fragmented parts. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2/5 58% Kaabil (2017) It is evident, early on, that Rohan and Supriya's blindness was pencilled into the script as a public relations peg in a desperate attempt to make the film somewhat relevant, because there's literally nothing else that sets it apart in any way. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3.5/5 100% Pink (2016) Pink forces the audience to ask these uncomfortable questions and, despite its filmmaking flaws, this makes it a big cinematic victory. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2/5 50% Force 2 (2016) The only other good thing there is to say about Force 2 is that it is not as bad as it could have been. If that is a movie standard you can live with, have fun. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2.5/5 43% Baar Baar Dekho (2016) Sadly, it ends up as one more example of two attractive actors looking good and doing little of substance on screen. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2.5/5 83% Happy Bhag Jayegi (2016) While Happy Bhag Jayegi is not bad, exactly, it still manages to frustrate with its many, many misses. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3.5/5 67% UNindian (2015) As corny as it is, watching Brett Lee imitate Salman Khan's dance moves from Kick will be a treat for cricket and Bollywood fans. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2/5 40% Rustom (2016) Tinu Desai's much-anticipated Rustom is many things - but mostly it is a crushing disappointment for fans of Bollywood's resident patriot, Akshay Kumar. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3/5 38% Mohenjo Daro (2016) The visuals are stunning -- which is unsurprising, given that it was directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. He clearly spends a lot of time perfecting the details -- of the film's sets, if not the story. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3/5 75% Madaari (2016) [Khan's] pitch-perfect acting is the only thing that makes the movie work, more or less, despite a wobbly script that groans under the weight of underwritten characters, and tries to pack in too many concepts without doing full justice to any of them. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2/5 80% Sultan (2016) If you're not a Salman Khan fan, give this Eid party a miss. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3.5/5 83% Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016) It's a treat for those who like their movies very, very dark. - The National (UAE) EDIT

4.5/5 100% Udta Punjab (2016) Watch it, because it probably is the most important film to come out of Bollywood this year. - The National (UAE) EDIT

4/5 64% Te3n (2016) There are plenty of twists and blind alleys to keep the audience's inner Sherlock occupied. - The National (UAE) EDIT

1/5 30% Housefull 3 (2016) As the third instalment of an inexplicably successful franchise, Housefull 3 continues in the same distasteful vein as its predecessors. - The National (UAE) EDIT

1.5/5 25% Azhar (2016) If you're a fan of cricket, Azhar will make you angry. Even if you're not, it will surely irritate you with its glibness. - The National (UAE) EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet 1920 London (2016) The film has the unique distinction of being disappointing in not one, but two genres of storytelling: horror and romance. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3.5/5 76% Fan (2016) Just for these rare moments inspired by Shah Rukh Khan's real life, you should go and watch Fan. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2.5/5 11% Ki & Ka (2016) There was so much potential in the idea if the writer-director R Balki had allowed his characters to breathe and indulge in a little introspection. - The National (UAE) EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Rocky Handsome (2016) Rocky Handsome has a lazy script but for a brawny action film that can be excused. What's unforgivable is action sequences being diluted of their potential to make way for ill-timed drama. - The National (UAE) EDIT

4/5 100% Neerja (2016) Neerja is a great story told well. - The National (UAE) EDIT
