• At its core, Jolly LLB 2 is the story of the condition of courts in the country, much like its predecessor. Akshay Kumar is the driving force of this drama. Director Subhash Kapoor doesn’t do enough to extract the best of Akshay’s comic timing. But there are enough to get by. Saurabh Shukla’s dialogues make you break into a laugh every now and then. The man steals the show.

  • Yes, Dangal is a crowd-pleaser. But it also has stellar performances and an engaging story-telling. Aamir is compelling in his role of Mahavir. He annoys you as much as he does his daughters with his strictness as the ‘haanikarak bapu’. He also gets you misty-eyed when he realises his daughter has gone astray. He makes you root for him when he trains Geeta against the diktat of the National Sports Academy, and makes you hoot along with him when his daughter takes on her competitors. All cliched yet entertaining.

  • The charm of La La Land lies in its details. In the glances that Mia and Sebastian share, in the references to Casablanca, in the jazz musicians telling the tale of a dying music form, in the coming full circle. Along with his team, director Chazelle crafts a tale that is nothing short of magic. That, in one word, is what La La Land is.
    Watch La La Land this week. It is an experience. Not a mere film.

  • Befikre is best enjoyed when you go in without any expectations at all. The film is not boring. And that’s what makes it a decent one-time watch.

  • Watch the film for Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan. It’s an emotional joyride which won’t harm you when watched once.

  • Force 2 raises a tricky point. Should RAW agents be named and called martyrs instead of the country washing its hands off them if they’re killed in service?
    Maybe the government will be able to answer that. As for us commoners, Force 2 is a decent one-time watch. Just make sure your ears are seasoned to bear loud noise.

  • In terms of making an impact on its viewers, Rock On 2 will do nothing. The one thing it will do is boost the Meghalaya tourism.
    In all, watch Rock On 2 for the picturesque locales of Meghalaya. Else skip it.

  • Watch Shivaay if you have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE TO DO. Else watch a documentary on mountaineering. Or child trafficking. Or Bulgaria. Or whatever you want to. (Just a special mention for the company which made the tent that weathered pretty much everything.)

  • A good horror film is chicken soup for the soul and when such a film is tailor-made to be a family affair (similar to Bong Joon-ho’s 2006 Korean monster film The Host), it becomes all the more ‘important’. You begin to root for the characters fighting insurmountable odds and miss them when they die in gruesome, undeserving ways. Train to Busan has all these qualities and probably the worst thing we will get from the film is that Hollywood has already begun remaking it. Yes, hide kids.

  • At the end of the day, everything in Inferno is just about passable. Watch the film if you really want to.
