1/5 No Score Yet Dil Juunglee (2018) Dil Juunglee may reward conceit for jumping into the water, but that won't wash sins away or make suffering fools a love story.‐

2/5 60% Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) Against their bland impulses and phony chemistry, the joke either falls flat or doesn't register at all...Ditto for the melodrama.‐

1/5 40% Aiyaary (2018) It's a bloated, prolonged mess of misplaced purpose that digresses from military misdeeds to animal cruelty.‐

2.5/5 100% Pad Man (2018) What PadMan is aiming for is admirable and a genuine concern, but it isn't always above the missteps common to most films of the meaningful genre...PadMan has its premise in place. Now if only it had some wings.‐

3.5/5 50% Jolly LLB 2 (2017) What's nice though that even when Jolly LLB 2 relaxes its fun side to venture into serious terrain, it retains its spunk and irony. Once again, Akshay Kumar leaps into the dramatic space of verbal volleys and paan-stained pearlies with ease.‐

2/5 40% Jai Gangaajal (2016) Jai GangaaJal is watchable till Jha lets self-indulgence get the better of him.‐

3/5 No Score Yet Kaalakaandi (2018) There's a suppressed philosophy in his feverish outbursts that suggest a curiosity, sadness and an unfulfilled life in desperate need of a high. Kaalakaandi doesn't always provide it, but there's enough intrigue to play along.‐

1.5/5 No Score Yet Raabta (2017) Dinesh Vijan's unintended allegory on 'the grass is always greener on the other side' syndrome, flitting between rom-com to rebirth, could not be more bizarre.‐

1/5 No Score Yet Half Girlfriend (2017) n inept hands, the commonplace conventionality of Bhagat's writing sticks out like a sore thumb.‐

2/5 0% Ab Tak Chhappan 2 (2015) Sadly, Ab Tak Chhappan 2 is so terribly obvious in its deviousness, there's not even a smidgen of surprise to expect.‐

2/5 60% Ghayal Once Again (2016) Loosely reminiscent of True Lies, the climatic action is a dampener. Overdone in tacky CGI, its intended heft is lost in wishy-washy virtue and unconvincing sentimentality.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2017
2/5 50% Freaky Ali (2016) It's entirely on the writers and actors to make the proceedings seem crucial or comic. What shows up on screen is plain lazy on their part and it's painfully dull to watch.‐

3/5 80% Dear Maya (2017) Watching the mild-mannered actress return to screen after a personally difficult time resonates with the headway she makes as Maya.‐

2/5 No Score Yet Dear Dad (2016) Bhramar's necessity to address prejudices isn't unwarranted but contrived because of how hastily he wants to cover so much ground. ‐
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
2.5/5 No Score Yet David (2013) There's no denying Nambiar's promise as an adventurous, aesthetically-sound filmmaker but his weak spot remains the same. His eye for dynamic visuals is yet to find its match in stories that speak. ‐

2/5 No Score Yet Fukrey Returns (2017) The oddball tone of these excesses wouldn't feel as tedious around a witty context or coherent script. Except the gags, contrived around comically hostile interactions and burdened by a steady supply of predictable rejoinders, fall completely flat.‐

3/5 40% Daawat-e-Ishq (2014) Whether she's inquiring about turning black money into white or asserting a woman's right to her surname after marriage, its Parineeti's pluck and effervescence that gives Daawat-E-Ishq the courage to push the plot in a tricky direction.‐

3/5 No Score Yet Aisha (2010) Yes, I love her clothes. I love her makeup. I love her black nail polish. I love her hair. I love her heels (also the subject of an amusing episode in the movie). I love her life. I just don't care enough about her. Except that I really want to.‐

3.5/5 100% Budhia Singh: Born To Run (2016) From fame to obscurity, hunger to heartbreak, Budhia's story is both sensational and sad. But, most of all, it's incomplete with no finishing line in sight. ‐

No Score Yet Kyun...! Ho Gaya Na (2004) Come to think of it, Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa...'s music is like the weather in Mumbai right now -- fresh, breezy and romantic.‐

2.5/5 67% Dil Bole Hadippa! (My Heart Goes Hooray!) (2009) Truth be told, Dil Bole Hadippa only works as long as Veer takes centre stage.‐

100% Ship Of Theseus (2012) Ship of Theseus is a sign of evolution in filmmaking, a work of art.‐

2.5/5 89% Sultan (2016) It's highly superficial in its ambition, as if the only objective is to tick off items on a list without bothering to check if appears authentic or heartfelt in the final scheme.‐

3/5 78% Fan (2016) Unique and rewarding.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2016
4/5 13% Shaandaar (Shandaar) (2015) Shaandaar is simply fun, fun, fun.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
2/5 50% Jazbaa (2015) A mostly watchable thriller marred by its director Sanjay Gupta's penchant for excesses.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2015
3/5 60% The Intern (2015) An easy, breezy office space confection that doesn't require much of your time.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Hero (2015) The new Hero isn't set in 1983 and the original's 'top cop's daughter falls for a golden-hearted crook' narrative has long bitten dust.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2015
1/5 16% The Transporter Refueled (2015) Unless a 95-minute long excuse to advertise Audi, Omega or Apple is your idea of a mindless action movie, steer clear of this mechanical junk.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2015
2.5/5 No Score Yet Manjhi: The Mountain Man (2015) A middling effort chronicling the incredible struggle of Dashrath Manjhi (brought to life by a spellbinding Nawazuddin Siddiqui).‐

1.5/5 50% Brothers (2015) Too cosmetic, loud and exhausting.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/5 100% Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) Even in its unmistakably masala tone, it firmly believes the desire for peace is universal and recommends being a hero. Or just human.‐

4/5 92% Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) The first part of the epic leaves behind dollops of rip-roaring entertainment to relish.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2015
2/5 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) Schwarzenegger is easily the only attraction of this wishy-washy sequel, prequel, reboot, offshoot, whatever.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2015
3.5/5 No Score Yet Papanasam (2015) If I were to compare, I still like Drishyam better but Papanasam is a laudable runner up.‐

3.5/5 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) Cruise plays second fiddle to the luminous talents of Emily Blunt for a good chunk of the movie. Even at his best, he's a worthy equal but never superseding her swashbuckling charisma.‐

2.5/5 70% ABCD 2 (2015) Because of its poorly paced beginning, ABCD 2 feels a bit of stretch at 154 minutes.‐

3/5 73% Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) Charming fluff.‐

4/5 84% Cinderella (2015) Costume designer Sandy Powell is as much at the helm of Cinderella's success as Branagh and his two leading ladies.‐

3/5 83% My Name Is Khan (2010) Well-meant but flawed.‐
Read More | Posted May 26, 2015
4/5 No Score Yet Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015) Tanu Weds Manu Returns is not merely superior to its predecessor but the flamboyance and fun it provides is an implication we're not quite done with this mad duo and their quirky universe yet.‐
Read More | Posted May 22, 2015
3.5/5 No Score Yet Special 26 (2013) There's so much confidence at display here, it's almost as though Pandey is challenging us to find flaws.‐
Read More | Posted May 17, 2015
4/5 73% Kai Po Che! (2013) Kapoor clearly recognises the strengths (and limitations) of this story as a motion picture and labours to compound an emotionality worth rooting for even if it means significant departure from the source. It's a beautiful risk. And it totally works.‐

2/5 62% Bombay Velvet (2015) In trying to emulate the aesthetics of Scarface and Goodfellas sans the subtext, Bombay Velvet forgets to flesh out the motivations of Balraj's one-dimensional darkness.‐
Read More | Posted May 15, 2015
2/5 14% Tees Maar Khan (2010) It's all dumb, dumbed down, jarring or contrived.‐
Read More | Posted May 11, 2015
4/5 92% Piku (2015) The conclusion tugs the heartstrings even more so because of the vulnerability it triggers but mostly because how attached you become.‐
Read More | Posted May 8, 2015
4/5 No Score Yet Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) Dum Laga Ke Haisha banks on Bhumi to make her character accessible enough to relate yet spirited enough to inspire. The newcomer doesn't let you down.‐

3.5/5 75% Luck by Chance (2009) Zoya Akhtar's crisply-written and keenly directed debut showcases Bollywood for what it is, with all its manipulations, double-standards, glamour, quirks, cliches, shallowness, superstitions, [and] struggles.‐

91% Veer-Zaara (2004) If you are a fan of the Chopra factory of filmmaking and looking for plenty of eye-candy, Veer-Zaara promises to make your Diwali a happy one.‐
Read More | Posted May 4, 2015
3.5/5 75% Om Shanti Om (2007) The idea of watching a massively-promoted Diwali release is to come out of the theatre feeling entertained. And for just that alone, Om Shanti Om definitely scores.‐
