20% Love Aaj Kal (2020) Director Imtiaz Ali isn't second time lucky with a reboot of his own 2009 romance film. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3.5/5 94% Panga (2020) Panga can best be described as a collection of small moments - many resonate, some fall flat. And even though Panga doesn't hit all the right notes, it does a successful job of merging Bollywood's two dearly loved themes... - The National (UAE) EDIT

2/5 69% War (2019) You get roughly 154 minutes of mildly impressive action sequences heavily inspired from the Mission Impossible films, sandwiched between a wafer thin plot that becomes incrementally bizarre as the film inches along... - The National (UAE) EDIT

60% Mission Mangal (2019) It is impossible not to enjoy a movie like Mission Mangal, given the subject matter it deals with... One only wishes the makers had dialled down the theatrics and allowed the audience to quietly revel in the moment. - The National (UAE) EDIT

2/5 15% Romeo Akbar Walter (2019) Describing Romeo Akbar Walter as a spy thriller would be misleading, because the film offers ridiculously little by way of thrills and chills. Or expressions. - The National (UAE) EDIT

4/5 79% Photograph (2019) Ritesh Batra's new film is meant for an audience that can appreciate love that is unhurried. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3/5 31% Luka Chuppi (2019) Watch Luka Chuppi for a talented cast of actors stuck with a half-baked script working very hard to give you some easy giggles. - The National (UAE) EDIT

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 55% 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 38% 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 45% 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 36% 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 78% 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 85% Sultan (2016) If you're not a Salman Khan fan, give this Eid party a miss. - The National (UAE) EDIT

3.5/5 86% 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 91% 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 67% Te3n (2016) There are plenty of twists and blind alleys to keep the audience's inner Sherlock occupied. - The National (UAE) EDIT

1/5 25% 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 22% 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 79% 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
