• Haraamkhor shows a lot of promise but ends up being way too vague to be hard-hitting.

  • This heart-breaking tale on life and death leaves a lump in your throat. It is enormously engrossing but is not for you if you seek light-hearted entertainment and romantic escapism in movies.

  • The performances and chemistry between the lead actors is remarkable. Gosling shines as a prickly Jazz purist, who conceals his emotions while Stone stands out as the sparkly girl, whose eyes speak a million words. Together they are magical and so is this eternal love ballad that will change the way you look at life.

  • You walk into this film, hoping to feel claustrophobic but walk out trying to shake off boredom.

  • Despite the odds, if you like old-fashioned love stories with great music, Tum Bin 2 is a partially heartrending tale that can be watched for its beautiful message and sincere execution.

  • Clint Eastwood’s portrayal of the predicament of a decorated military hero in American Sniper was more hard-hitting. This one’s effective in portions, but falls short of holding your undivided attention.

  • The script is a major downer. It is way too contrived, directionless and morose to hold your interest. With no strong conflict point to hold it all together, the story goes haywire. The narration tries too hard to manipulate your feelings and spoon-feed emotions by explaining the unsaid thoughts of the characters, depriving you the joy of discovering it for yourself. The music is shockingly weak. Barring the Usha Uthup track, it is not a patch on the former’s iconic tracks.

  • Overall, Ajay is unstoppable in Shivaay but you wish he wasn’t! Laced with visual excellence, you applaud his film’s larger than life canvas but despite the efforts, his second directorial venture fails to engage you emotionally.

  • To cut to the chase, this crime thriller mostly works for its engaging plot and edge-of-the-seat action instead of its star power. However, if you are a massive Tom Cruise fan, do watch the film for that one scene towards the end, where he gives you glimpses of his ‘Top Gun’ days. That’s pure joy.

  • Like WoIff, if you as intrigued by incongruity and inconsistencies in people’s behaviour, you will love this wonderfully made thriller, that unfolds like an enchanting fictional puzzle.
