• Kangana’s Queen made you want to fly to Amsterdam right from the theatre. There is nothing that you want to do after Simran, save go back home. Watch the film if you swear by Kangana Ranaut. She spreads her wings like the tiny butterflies in her stomach and flies, but Simran does not take off.

  • Two words: Skip this. And if at all you muster up the courage to watch Indu Sarkar, keep a mug of VERY strong coffee handy. You might doze off several times while the Emergency plays out in front of you.

  • Jagga Jasoos wins in the way the story is told, not necessarily in what the story is. Take a trip to Anurag Basu’s fantasy land this weekend. You will not be disappointed.

  • Mom scrutinises and lays bare the gaping holes in the law in this country. Its method of making the criminals meet their fate is over-dramatised and problematic. And unbelievable. But who can say no to a tale of a mother’s revenge?

  • A celebration of death and old age that works in parts…

  • The runtime of the film works in its favour. In less than 2 hours, your patience levels are fine. The absence of songs makes sure the pace of Trapped is not hampered.
    Watch Trapped this week. Be thankful that you have the option of opening a door and getting out. And make sure you double-check the locks before that door shuts and you’re, well, you know.

  • 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.
