Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 83% Saala Khadoos (2016) Avoid this grumpy drama if you are looking for a good sports film. If you must, watch it for Madhavan's power-packed performance.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 54% Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) Ae Dil Hai Mushkil offers little in terms of story and fails to get the audience empathise or feel for the characters and events in the movie. What it does offer is brilliance in the name of Ranbir and Anushka.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 71% Veere Di Wedding (2018) Kareena Kapoor Khan tries her best but fails to uplift this outrageous, gratingly loud and unnecessarily abusive film.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 69% Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain (2014) A Prayer For Rain is a must-watch, for the sheer gravity of the criminal incident that remains unresolved three decades after it occurred. Also, it blames both the American and Indian sides.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 No Score Yet High Jack (2018) The film remains half baked and chaos take away the fun element. The tone-deaf jokes on transgenders, women and the elderly leave us disgusted. Since when is bad taste funny?‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 No Score Yet Wah Taj (2016) At scripting stage, Wah Taj could have been a good watch, but what we see onscreen is totally avoidable.‐ Hindustan Times

4.75/5 63% Ugly (2014) Ugly, in one simple line, is about how we tend to lose greater things in life because we are too stuck on our own perceptions and insecurities.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 No Score Yet Omertà (2018) With crisp editing and a runtime of 97 minutes, the film never lets you lose attention and the gripping narrative style ensures you are on the edge throughout. ‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 40% Daas Dev (2018) Daas Dev could have done to Vipin's career what Newton did to Pankaj Tripathi's, if only it was a better film.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Tutak Tutak Tutiya (2016) Look elsewhere for a soul-stirring piece of art.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 No Score Yet Blackmail (2018) It is refreshing to see a Bollywood movie where misogyny and lack of consent are called out, even in an all-male zone. Abhinav Deo's Blackmail offers several similar moments to cherish and celebrate.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 55% Tamasha (2015) Both Ranbir and Deepika come across as mature performers in Tamasha. ‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 33% Main Aur Charles (2015) You should avoid this film at all costs: The narrative offers nothing at all and despite the good performances, badly-sketched characters leave little for the actors to do.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 71% Raid (2018) With a tighter editing, slightly less focus on the wannabe love story and a lesser dose of melodrama, Raid could have been a gripping thriller.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 80% 3 Storeys (2018) It is a film that weaves together thriller, love story, social issues, realities and life all in one package, without being too messy. The actors' brilliant performances are added bonus.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Dil Juunglee (2018) Dil Junglee is an age-old story, told with a hundred stereotypes, none of which helps it. It is only Taapsee's charming presence and Saqib's earthiness that keep us entertained.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 60% Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) The one thing that worked for Pyaar Ka Punchnama films was the relatability, even if it was restricted to guys-only discussions. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety doesn't have that, nor is it funny.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz (2018) Despite emotionally charged sequences, the entire narrative feels a tad slow, even at 120 minutes. Unless you believe in teen love where words were more important than deeds and poetry could solve all, the film is likely to leave you untouched.‐ Hindustan Times

No Score Yet Kochadaiiyaan 3D (2014) Thalaivar Rajinikanth's much touted comeback on the silver screen, Kochadaiiyaan, is here. Is it worth the fan frenzy? Not really.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 0% Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon (2015) KKPK establishes Kapil Sharma's acting skills beyond doubt, but he couldn't have made a worse choice. Watch the film only if you are a hopeless fan of the comedian.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 43% Kill DIL (2014) There are too many "creative escapades" in the film. Out of the blue, the actors decide to escape to deserts and seasides, mainly to make a particular song look beautiful. The songs in the movie are interruptions in the narrative.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 100% Pad Man (2018) The film tackles the "shame" that our society insists on imposing on periods, head on. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet My Birthday Song (2018) It is the heavy-footed treatment of the film that fails it. It is so overdramatic that even the solid theme on which it is based gets lost.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Kaalakaandi (2018) ... Kaalakaandi is a thriller at best and an attempted comedy at worst.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
2/5 60% Monsoon Shootout (2013) Vijay Varma outshines everyone in the film. He is the kind of actor who makes you forget his face and believe in his character.‐ Hindustan Times

50% Gulaab Gang (2014) There are several cliches and loopholes like this in the film but it is an entertaining potboiler nonetheless.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
No Score Yet Gang Of Ghosts (2014) Unfortunately, the film does not offer the right build-up for the audience to empathise with the pain of the characters.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 50% Freaky Ali (2016) Despite the cliches and melodrama, we found Freaky Ali worth the time and money. From the 'talented actor' for the intelligentsia to the common man's entertainer, Siddiqui is one star we love.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 No Score Yet Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (2016) The film focuses more on the idea of love than anything else, and the beautiful locales of Malaysia add to this experience. That in itself is reason enough to watch it.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
No Score Yet Dedh Ishqiya (2014) The film brings such grace to the dialogues, frames, set-up and songs of a movie. It does look a bit unrealistic but then, isn't cinema all about suspension of disbelief?‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 No Score Yet Coffee Bloom (2015) Coffee Bloom, a journey of self-discovery and the struggles of love woven into the story, could as easily have been set in a mango orchard or a tea plantation. But the beauty of a coffee plantation in Coorg brings a freshness that would have been lost.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Calendar Girls (2015) The premise of Calendar Girls is shocking. But are we scandalised enough, and engaged too, at the end of this 131 minute-long look inside yet another infamous industry? With bland narrative and poor acting skills on display, not at all.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2017
1/5 20% Firangi (2017) An incoherent screenplay makes this Kapil Sharma-starrer a mind-numbing affair. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet Dark Wind (Kadvi Hawa) (2017) Darkly humorous and searing, Kadvi Hawa is a film that will stay with you.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2017
2.5/5 83% Tumhari Sulu (2017) Despite painting a very realistic canvas of issues that plague people's domestic life such as ego fights and the likes, Suresh's story seems a bit too clumsily wrapped leaving several loopholes in the narrative.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
3/5 86% An Insignificant Man (2016) The footage has been woven together to form a proper story and it helps in making the film gripping.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
4/5 86% Qarib Qarib Singlle (2017) The interactions between the lead couple are a novel and realistic way of depicting romance in Bollywood.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
3.5/5 40% Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana (2017) ... beyond the song and dance routine, it also shines light on gender inequality, dowry and corruption, holding a mirror up to us as a people.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
2.5/5 No Score Yet Ribbon (2016) Neither the characters nor the narrative take upon the evils and the evil-doers.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
3.5/5 90% Airlift (2016) Though an action-packed story, Airlift's strength lies in the turbulent emotions of people at the mercy of each other's generosity and self-preservation.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2017
2/5 18% Fitoor (2016) Except for a few scenes, Katrina Kaif-Aditya Roy Kapur-starrer Fitoor comes across as a rather superficial affair and a disappointing adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 71% Wazir (2016) Apart from the smart storyline, powerful performances are the backbone of Wazir.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2017
2/5 90% Dear Zindagi (2016) The way Kaira narrates her own fears and weaknesses to Jug is pretty unreal. The dialogues are full of cliches and do not come across as natural.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2017
2.5/5 38% Mohenjo Daro (2016) Mohenjo Daro looks like a hangover of a bad cocktail -- one that mixed Lagaan and Jodhaa Akbar.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2017
0.5/5 No Score Yet Jia aur Jia (2017) A flat and boring film about girl bonding, the Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chaddha film evokes no emotion other than frustration of having to bear it for 90 minutes.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
2.5/5 60% Golmaal Again (2017) Rohit takes a lot of time to establish this entire set up and there aren't too many one-liners or jokes to keep you entertained during this period.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
3/5 100% CRD (2016) CRD is the kind of film that makes you wonder about the people on the periphery, flirting with limelight but never really in it.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 67% Chef (2017) Chef offers moments of brilliance which, if weaved in a more organised manner, may have given us a light, affable film. But a lazy and rather uninterested narrative takes away the pleasure.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
2/5 50% Bhoomi (2017) Bhoomi is a revenge drama that tries a lot to be bold, brave and advocate feminism but wants to stay in the comfort zone of a typical Bollywood masala film. The result is stereotypes, over-the-top melodrama and a predictable story.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
1.5/5 67% Simran (2017) All of it seems so self-indulgent that neither the film nor the protagonist is successful in making the audience empathise or identify with her.‐ Hindustan Times
