Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 83% Soorma (2018) Too much dependence on songs, gratuitous drama and formulas negates a great deal of good that Shaad's earlier impulses have accomplished. But Diljit Dosanjh's striking self-possession, like the champion he's portraying, doesn't let it come in the way.‐

2/5 20% Begum Jaan (2017) In its preoccupation with drama, Begum Jaan neglects to reveal its soul. As a consequence, you feel nothing for the characters, their cause or fate.‐

2/5 83% Saala Khadoos (2016) Between its many, many confused, underdeveloped, raucous ideas hides the film Saala Khadoos set out to be. Too bad it never made it to the screen.‐

4/5 50% Sanju (2018) But even at its most obvious, overdone and withholding, Sanju is effortlessly compelling. The reason is Ranbir Kapoor.‐

2/5 57% Singh Is Bliing (2015) When they announced Singh is Bliing, I was most curious about its peculiar title and kitschy poster. I don't know why they called it that. What I do know is all that glitters is not gold.‐

3.5/5 100% Lust Stories (2018) Lust Stories doesn't dwell on consequences. It bears the quality of life and moves on from one chapter to another.‐

2.5/5 71% Veere Di Wedding (2018) There's no real rebellion, just a consuming love for fashion and faux feminism where every zinger flying out of their mouth sounds like something you've heard on a sitcom or favourited on your Pinterest wall.‐

2/5 50% Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran (2018) It's ultimately a cursory glance at a tough tactical choice and tame recreation of a controversial reality whose face is a stiff star.‐

3.5/5 No Score Yet Hope Aur Hum (2018) Hope Aur Hum never strays into complicated territory and sticks to its gentle celebration of everyday highs and lows. Its idealism may seem intentional, but never ever contrived.‐

2.5/5 71% 102 Not Out (2018) 102 Not Out never shrugs off the feeling of made-for-stage or garbled, lost-in-translation Gujarati texture.‐

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.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
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.‐

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.‐

4/5 13% Shaandaar (Shandaar) (2015) Shaandaar is simply fun, fun, fun.‐

2/5 50% Jazbaa (2015) A mostly watchable thriller marred by its director Sanjay Gupta's penchant for excesses.‐

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.‐
