Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

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

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

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

1/5 20% Firangi (2017) An incoherent screenplay makes this Kapil Sharma-starrer a mind-numbing affair. ‐ Hindustan Times

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

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

3/5 83% 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

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

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

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

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

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 No Score Yet 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

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 60% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
3.5/5 No Score Yet Sameer (2017) The movie is a brave and giant step for political cinema in Bollywood.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
2/5 No Score Yet Daddy (2017) The filmmaker is so bent on showing us the family man that we get but a few glimpses of the murderer and smuggler that he is.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (Shubh Mangal Savdhan) (2017) RS Prasanna presents Shubh Mangal Saavdhan in a flat manner and refuses to give space to the side characters, leaving behind one mess of what could have been a fun-filled entertainer.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 No Score Yet A Gentleman (2017) Raj and DK have managed to narrate the plain and full-of-cliches story in their own quirky style and their dialogues and the screenplay make it fun to watch.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 71% Gurgaon (2017) Pankaj Tripathi's sturdy, brooding performance brings out his best while Ragini Khanna rises up to her character and delivers an impressive performance.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 80% Indu Sarkar (2017) Madhur Bhandarkar's latest film has a confused narrative and melodrama that dethrones the attempt to champion the cause of democracy.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
3.5/5 89% Lipstick Under My Burkha (2016) The film is a subdued conversation starter -- let us talk about women's desires as well as their rights, let women open up about their dreams.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 No Score Yet Shab (2017) Raveena Tandon has given one of her most sensual, brilliant performances in Shab.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
1/5 20% Bank Chor (2017) The film has been marketed as a comedy but is actually an aspiring comic-thriller. Aspiring, because it fails majorly in being a comedy, and gives us little [that's] thrilling. ‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Behen Hogi Teri (2017) There is little to recommend in Behen Hogi Teri... other than the performance of Rajkummar Rao.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 80% Dear Maya (2017) It's a brilliant story poorly told.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
2/5 20% Meri Pyaari Bindu (2017) While the nostalgic references will ensure smiles keep making fleeting appearances on your face, the film won't quite make you root for the characters.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Noor (2017) While these anecdotes could have made for a hilarious, light-hearted movie, the misunderstanding of the profession in the film is appalling.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
1.5/5 No Score Yet Naam Shabana (2017) Unfortunately, it is not just the direction that falters. Neeraj's screenplay isn't as taut as his previous outings either.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2017
2.5/5 33% Phillauri (2017) Despite a fresh idea, Phillauri is a loosely-written film that fails to engross the audience.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
85% Afterimage (Powidoki) (2017) Slow but gripping.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
3/5 33% OK Jaanu (2017) AR Rahman's music and Gulzar's pen add to the charismatic, positive vibe of the movie -- while the music keeps it peppy and new-age, Gulzar's dialogues ensure that melodrama does not overpower the film.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 67% Bajirao Mastani (2015) It can be a good one-time watch, for Deepika's performance, if not anything else.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2016
2.5/5 53% Angry Indian Goddesses (2015) Ultimately, Angry Indian Goddesses is a decent watch as long as the fun lasts but tumbles downhill with gathering pace as the 'anger' kicks in.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2016
2.5/5 38% Phantom (2015) What mars the final product is pedestrian acting, by both Katrina Kaif and Saif Ali Khan, and a loose script.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2016
3.5/5 93% Guilty (Talvar) (2015) A tightly written narrative and mostly rational view of the investigations ensure Talvar is an edge-of-the-seat, engaging thriller that seeks to shock its audience.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) A tightly-knit story with the perfect dialogues for a comedy film that leaves the audience in splits.‐ Hindustan Times
