  • A slick and engaging Hindi comedy-drama that is equal parts road movie and fairy tale.

  • Perhaps its simplicity, and otherworldly niceness, is the tonic we need before embarking on bitter battles for creative freedom.

  • Be it the anger, wit and intrinsic sense of fun in Chhotu or the sincerity and gravitas beyond her years in Pari, Kukunoor manages to extract great work out of the two without any touch of artificiality, effort or righteousness.

  • The other problem, and this is the bigger one, is exotic Rajasthan being peddled in the name of naturalism - the 'leheriya safas' are too pristine, the clothes are too 'costumey.'

    December 8, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Even though Dhanak stays mysterious till its last scene, it gets too repetitive to hold your interest. Its soulful music, heartfelt style of narration and of course, delightful kids can't make this half-baked story soar.

    December 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It proves that the happily ever after notion may be overused and old, but it still gets the job done.
