• This film is insightful and dark, a certified entry into the indie and art cinema stable. If you like your films to be gritty and real, Haraamkhor is a real mean machine.

  • Dangal has everything that you’d ask from the perfect Hindi film. Its funny, dramatic, dark, serious, emotional all rolled into one seamless cinematic  gem. It is the movie of the year. A film that deserves a standing ovation. A story so good that it will make you feel like a proud Indian. This is a truly special film. 

  • All shortcomings of a film can be forgiven if it manages to entertain. But Wajah Tum Ho’s just isn’t able to cut it on that front. Even the songs Pal pal dilke paas, Mahi ve and Aise na mujhe tum dekho are cheap knock-offs. The movie offers generous helpings of eye candy but little wajah (reason) for recommendation. Perhaps reruns of yesteryear thrillers like Aitraaz, Gupt or Race would be more reasonable entertainment.

  • Befikre is a minefield of ideas. It has a deep desire to be erotic and funny but for all its progressive ambitions, it tells a jaded story. Modern people struggle to come out of their clichéd Indian-Punjabi moulds and that just foils all the fun.  

  • …this film has some fantastic moments. Some soul searching philosophy and some heart crushing realities on offer. Dear Zindagi is a feel good film. An experience that will make you feel alive.

  • Tum Bin 2 is Anubhav Sinha’s rehash of his first film for the new audience. Millennials who’ve grown up with romances like The Notebook or the current crop of tweens and teens who enjoy movies like The Fault In Our Stars or Aashiqui 2 will have lots of meat in this light but breezy romantic saga.

  • All said and done, Force 2 should be watched for its stellar action sequences. They’re high on both quality and quantity. If you’ve grown up enjoying the careers of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, this film can provide a very satisfactory experience.

  • Rock On 2 does drag at certain points but the film has all the right ideas. Better still are the performances. Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor sing reasonably well but they act to perfection. Farhan’s underplayed performance rocks you, there are moments when the tremble in his hands can give you gooseflesh. Shraddha gets the pitch of her fragile character right as well. She looks beautiful and has given one of her best performances ever. Arjun Rampal is impressive in his moments as well. The performances save it from the limitations of its writing and execution. Rock On 2 is nevertheless a bittersweet symphony.

  • Director Mike Mitchell loads the movie with countless pop culture references that make the story telling both cute and cool. The trolls are small and cute, in a funky disco-flavoured Smurfs sort of way and that works for the visuals of the movie. With a 90 minutes runtime, Trolls is a breeze to sit through. The camerawork complements the 3D content to great effect as well. Colours and glitter keep popping out of the screen all the time. While the sweetness and cutesy nature may seem over-the-top, that’s exactly what works for this movie. It’s light, bright and a very happy film.

  • Despite its hits and misses, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is an experience worth having. Karan Johar peppers this love story with countless movie references, some his own, some of his mentors at Yash Raj and others of his idols from Hindi cinema. His homage driven treatment adds the right kind of spunk to the film. Barring the minor hiccups in the narrative, this film is easily one of the best efforts of his career. It’s a film that makes you cry, makes you laugh and makes you fall in love.
