• A Script So Visibly Manipulative That It’s Difficult To Stay Invested…The film is basically every parent’s nightmare, but attempts to up the emotional stakes fall flat because they are repetitive and obvious

  • There are many magical things onscreen – including some wonderfully creative creatures – but the film is weighed down by its dense plot

  • Tumbbad is inspired by the works of Marathi horror writer Narayan Dharap. At the screening I was at, someone during the interval remarked, “It seems like a Marathi film.” I don’t know how he meant it but I take that as a compliment because even though the language spoken is Hindi, the atmosphere of the Konkan is so rich and the period details so well executed, that you feel it’s Marathi.

    I left the theatre with images swirling in my head and a few questions that the film doesn’t answer. Which is not a bad thing.

  • Kajol and Riddhi Sen feature in this story about a middle-aged, middle-class woman who must rediscover herself and find a life outside of her son. It’s a worthy idea but the narration is almost entirely lacking in insight or authenticity

  • Director Ruben Fleischer tries to make this Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed starrer thrilling and funny but the screenplay has little that is inventive or original

  • The most mystifying part of LoveYatri is Aayush’s hair, which rises a good three to four inches above his head. At one point, I wondered – what does it take to keep that up? Yes, this is that sort of film.

  • Sriram Raghavan’s thriller is about a blind pianist (Ayushmann Khurrana) who gets accidentally embroiled in a murder

  • So Sui Dhaaga: Made In India is unsatisfying but also poignant. I think the best analogy might be Anu Malik’s song in the film – Chaav Laaga, which isn’t as soul stirring as Moh Moh Ke Dhaage from Dum Laga Ke Haisha – but it’s still worth listening to.

  • J.P. Dutta’s film, based on a military operation against the Chinese at the Nathu La Pass in Sikkim in 1967, is structurally clumsy, bland and flat-out tedious
