Bachchan's millions of die-hard fans will be in speechless bliss.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Above all it is his self-indulgent salute to his idol, the incomparable Amitabh Bachchan. And nobody will blame him for that.

While Shamitabh may not be gripping from start to finish, it's a treat to watch its lead actors.

August 31, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Llike a pilot who has no idea where he's going to land his plane, Balki keeps circling round and round, playing out the same conflicts over and over again.

June 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Balki has a unique feel for comic soufflés, but into his third film, he still hasn't overcome his tendency to over-elaborate plot detail through dialogue, nor has he arrived at a discernible visual style that can goes beyond basic slick.

Often evoking The Artist, Dhanush is terrific as film-crazy Daanish.
