Kalank

KALANK is full of blemishes! Opulent sets, colourful visuals, glittering costumes, heavy dialogue and an imaginary dreamlike city! Sounds like a Bhansali film? It almost is, only with a much more shallow, contrived and pointless script which labours on for nearly 3 hours. While it doesn’t bore its viewers, it doesn’t entertain either. Watchable, but not recommended! Set in 1945, in Pre-Indep...[Read More]

Shazam!

“SHAZAM!” is terrific fun! In the ongoing attempts of DC universe at being more enjoyable and a worthy competition to the exuberant Marvel movies, “SHAZAM!” comes in as a welcome addition. It’s funny, sweet, charming, innocent and totally worth your time and money. Go for it, fun is guaranteed for viewers of all ages! The film advocates that we all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a...[Read More]

Kesari

KESARI is well intentioned, but formulaic and insincerely schmaltzy! Well mounted and shot with extensive CGI, KESARI narrates a worthy chapter of bravery in Indian history. But with a sluggish screenplay, half-baked characters, mawkish melodrama and a monotonous narrative, the film is a slog for the most part. With heavy dialogue, all it does, is play it to the gallery. It’s watchable for Aksh...[Read More]

Luka Chuppi

LUKA CHUPPI is dumb, but watchable! While the film believes it has something progressive to offer, all it provides us with is an outdated commentary on modern relationships. However, despite very weak content, it does manage to generate some fun and keep you engaged through its 2-hour-run. Good enough only for your free time, don’t expect anything meaningful! “Luka Chuppi” is the story of Gu...[Read More]

Sonchiriya

SONCHIRIYA is authentic and gritty, but too long and a tad boring! Superbly shot, realistically portrayed and powerfully performed, SONCHIRIYA is an action film on dacoits/rebels in the late 70’s India. Well conceptualized, but overindulgent with its social commentary, it fails to hold your attention you for its long runtime of nearly two and a half hours. Watchable, but remember you will need ...[Read More]

Gully Boy

Recommended

GULLY BOY is emotionally rich and extremely enjoyable! Essentially an underdog story, GULLY BOY also packs in so much more than just that. Authentic mounting, solid writing, passionate direction by Zoya Akhtar, and a soul-stirring performance by Ranveer Singh, make GULLY BOY a new-age classic, which should not be missed. To convey it in the Gully-Lingo, I’d say – Picture Bohot Hard Hai! GULL...[Read More]

Simmba

SIMMBA is formulaic but engaging! Packing-in all the masala ingredients that make a quintessential Rohit Shetty caper, SIMMBA is yet another edition, which is probably amongst the better works in the universe of this genre of cinema. Its long, but never tiring, and also delivers a good message, but in the most manipulating way possible – eventually catering satisfactorily to the expectations of...[Read More]

Zero

ZERO is absurd, but passable! Held together solely by an effortlessly charming Shahrukh Khan who wins your heart totally, this film is otherwise a poorly written, non-sensical and weird fantasy-drama. Calling this a concept-film, is a joke. Clocking-in at nearly quarter to three hours, ZERO has a rivetingly humorous first half, followed by a labored and pointlessly bizarre second half. It isn’t...[Read More]

Kedarnath

KEDARNATH is clichéd, but passable!   A blatant copy of Hollywood classic TITANIC, this film lacks novelty and ingenuity. However, this run-of-the-mill content is enhanced by a charming lead pair and pleasing visuals, which make this film a decent pastime. Watch it if you have two hours of absolutely free time! Set on a 14-kilometer pilgrimage from Gauri Kund to Kedarnath, the 2000-y...[Read More]

2.0

“2.0” is a grand spectacle that’s captivating but not convincing! Displaying what Indian Cinema can achieve if funded well with money and vision, “2.0” is an ambitious exhibition of visual effects which is truly impressive in its scope and scale. What it lacks in narrative heft, is compensated by the marvelous graphic display of action, born in the mind of master writer/director Shankar. Entert...[Read More]

Thugs of Hindostan

THUGS OF HINDOSTAN is a mammoth misadventure! By far the most expensive film in the history of Hindi cinema, THUGS OF HINDOSTAN plays with really high stakes, but having such poor cards to play with, it ends up being a misfortune. Clocking a runtime of nearly three long hours, this is one grand boring affair. Avoidable! Based on Philip Meadows Taylor's 1839 novel “Confessions of a Thug”, the...[Read More]

Badhaai Ho

Recommended

BADHAAI HO is funny yet sensible! With a theme that immediately cracks you up, BADHAAI HO is a brilliant idea that’s also executed skillfully. Well performed and sensitively handled, this comedy is definitely worth your time and money. Go for it! The story goes as – when his middle-aged parents announce the news of an untimely pregnancy, Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) is far from thrilled. Not o...[Read More]
