Chef

CHEF is sweet and pleasing, but not tangy enough!Apart from carrying a relevant message at its core, CHEF provides you with a treat of some mouth-watering dishes and a few gorgeous locales, in and around Kochi. While it all makes sense, and is nicely enacted, the film lacks that tart flavour which could’ve made it a real delight. Despite being slow and predictable, it has a soul, and very well...[Read More]

Judwaa 2

JUDWAA 2 is loud and regressive, yet passable!Propelled solely by the magnetic charm of its leading man Varun Dhawan, JUDWAA-2 is watchable despite a lame script, unmodern treatment and total lack of ingenuity. With a runtime of over 2.5 hours, it at best qualifies as a pastime for your absolutely free time.Raja and Prem - the iconic Jodi from “Judwaa” are back after 20 years. Twin brother...[Read More]

Lucknow Central

LUCKNOW CENTRAL is a bland jail-escape drama!Nearly 2.5 hours long, LUCKNOW CENTRAL offers nothing new in terms of story or storytelling. With scenes ranging from clichéd to predictable, all it manages to do, is to not be boring. While it’s definitely watchable, I don’t really recommend it!After being accused of murder, Kishen Mohan Girhotra (Farhan Akhtar) is thrown inside the Lucknow Cen...[Read More]

Simran

SIMRAN is an average film, made watchable by a brilliant performance!Well mounted, with high production values and an authentic setting, Hansal Mehta’s portrayal of a dysfunctional young girl works for the most part. However, lazy writing, especially in the second half, makes this otherwise engaging film fall apart. But “engaging” I say here, is mainly because of its superlative lead act from ...[Read More]

Daddy

DADDY is gritty and well-constructed, but extremely slow-paced!Marked by stellar performances from Rampal and the supporting cast, this true story of the gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli is quite a realistic portrayal. However, with a confusing narrative that runs at snail’s pace, DADDY fails to keep you engrossed for all of its duration. This one’s definitely watchable, but you need some...[Read More]

It

Recommended

‘IT’ is immensely frightening, surprisingly emotional, and thoroughly engaging!With genuine chills throughout its runtime, this first part of the adaptation makes for great horror movie. But what mainly connects you deeply with the primary characters is the delightful warmth skilfully interwoven in the screenplay, making the proceedings even more riveting. If you’re in mood to watch a good sca...[Read More]

Poster Boys

POSTER BOYS is extremely silly!While it earnestly tries to raise awareness for a cause, it never really rises above the low-IQ comedy that we’ve already had enough of. It may not be boring, but it’s so ludicrous that I wish they had only released that “Poster” to help the cause, instead of making this film. Not recommended!This Hindi remake of the 2014 Marathi movie “Poshter Boyz”, POSTER ...[Read More]

SHUBH MANGAL SAAVDHAN (शुभ मंगल सावधान)

Recommended

SHUBH MANGAL SAAVDHAN is refreshingly funny!Touching upon the bold topic of ‘erectile dysfunction’, this light-hearted take on the sexual problem is consistently funny, keenly mature and never ever awkward. Powered by terrific performances and a riveting screenplay, this 118 minute comedy is highly recommended!SHUBH MANGAL SAAVDHAN narrates the story of Mudit (Ayushmann Khurana) and Sugand...[Read More]

Baadshaho

BAADSHAHO is a dumb heist drama!With a superfluous plot, uninspiring twists, banal dialogues and strictly mediocre performances, BAADHAHO is a disappointing big budget flick. Despite a brisk narrative and impressive locales, the film fails to leave any cognitive impact whatsoever, thanks to the gaping holes in its script. While it doesn’t bore you, it’s a mediocre film which can be missed!...[Read More]

A Gentleman

A GENTLEMAN is a stylish popcorn entertainer, and nothing more!Riding high on the back of its gorgeous lead pair and dazzling locales, this latest rom-com-actioner has very little to offer in terms of substance, yet manages to keep us hooked with its casual attitude and hep presentation. At a little over two hours, this is watchable, but only if you have nothing else to do this weekend.Gau...[Read More]

Babumoshai Bandookbaaz (बाबुमोशाय बंदूकबाज)

BABUMOSHAI BANDOOKBAAZ is an overindulgent mess, yet provides passable entertainment!Filled with cuss words, sexual depictions and connotations, and propelled by a suspenseful crime plot, BABUMOSHAI BANDOOKBAAZ tries too hard to be yet another ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. However, this earthy suspense thriller lacks a coherent script which can drive it towards being meaningful and memorable. Even its...[Read More]

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha

TOILET: EK PREM KATHA is well-meant, reasonably entertaining, but not compelling enough!Using his stardom to crusade for a good cause, Akshay Kumar surely takes a step in the right direction with this film. However, let-down by a very simple, surface-level screenplay, TOILET: EK PREM KATHA fails to urge you appropriately. Nevertheless, it has its share of humour and thoughtful intent to keep y...[Read More]
