Dunkirk
Dunkirk (2017)
17 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's a beautiful made movie, based on one of the most pivotal moments of last century, the rescue of 400 thousands allied soldiers from German clutches in WW2. The plot is all about race against time and the great cinematography & sound editing only pushes the tension further. The direction keeps things interesting with the use of three storylines, from the point of view of land, sea and air, they are set in different timelines which at times become confusing but when we realized how they are interconnected it's a very satisfying feeling. While it is among the best technically made movies, I did feel it could have been better. By using minimum dialogues and very less screen time for actors we never develop emotional attachment for them, the humanism factor was missing. Also there should have been more screen time for the real heroes of Dunkirk, the civilians, it should have been a celebration of their effort instead of just a spectacular effort in movie making techniques.

X-Men: Apocalypse
49 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's an enjoyable movie as a standalone but when compared to the other offerings by the X-man franchise, it falls short. The action is as always CGI heavy, big, dark and violent. Did feel it's lacking in the humor department as compared to the franchises like Avengers, the only fun scene was the cameo by Quicksilver even that was better in the previous X-man movie. It does have a superb cast and everyone's performances are good just felt there were too many mutants and ultimately everyone got very little screen time.

Sachin: A Billion Dreams
52 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Brilliant movie especially for a guy like me who is a fan of the little master, although got to say it caters to a very selective audience being a self-narrated biography, basically it's a must watch for Sachin fans, a good watch for cricket or sports fan. Sachin goes over the highs and lows of his life, the moments which were precious for him and the points which left him dejected. We get to see glimpse of his family life, scarifies and hardship he and the people around his had to go thru for him to reach the level he did. Reminds us ones again why he was the favorite of the nation, it was not only his batting skill but his integrity and characteristics which made him the icon of a billion people.

Phillauri
Phillauri (2017)

From the start the movie seemed lame, it's a wonder I sat through it till the end, utter waste of time. They had an idea but didn't know how to execute it, from casting, to script , to songs to direction, everything which could possible go wrong went wrong.

John Wick: Chapter 2
56 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Watch the movie if you are interested in a nonstop action from hand to hand to gun battle carnage, its sleek and smart, choreographed to perfection, best part it's not CGI fuelled. While the movies good, I did feel Part I was much superior be it in action or the script. Still I very much enjoyed it and hoping for a Part III to come out in near future. The ending set up the stage perfectly.
