• Happy Bhag Jayegi is an inoffensive family entertainer. If you don’t like your history with flying crocodiles or with patriotism forced down the throat, this inconspicuous film might appeal to you.

  • Ashutosh Gowariker does not make historical films, let’s get that clear. He is great at making spectacles using historical stories as a crutch. Sadly, this time, he picked the wrong story.

  • Budhia Singh – Born To Run should be watched. It is well-made with its heart in the right place. Good performances, a pleasing story, a national hero angle (Like Airlift, Neerja, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag) – what more do you want?

  • There is not much drama, not much wit, the villains (the big, bad giants come off as high-school bullies) are one-dimensional – it’s all very forgettable.
    Frankly, The BFG is a sub-par film in Spielberg’s oeuvre.

  • The film is as aimless and pointless as its protagonists, and Agneya Singh is no Richard Linklater or Gus Vant Sant who can create magic with a leisurely film about lost young folks (Dazed and Confused, SubUrbia, My Own Private Idaho).

  • Shorgul deserves a watch, more so because of its topicality in this putrid climate of communal hatred and intolerance.

  • It’s that kind of a movie which we call “sweet and simple”. This small, intimate film from Nagesh Kukunoor is a breezy, inoffensive, and often charming, two-hour ride that is all fable and fairy tale.

  • From the perspective of craft, The Conjuring 2 is a good, well-written-and-directed, classic entertainer. If you are looking for cheap thrills, you might want to skip this. But if you are in for a good movie-watching experience and wouldn’t mind a few chills, go for it.

  • As is always the norm with films about immature 20-year-olds looking for sex, the film’s story is all about coming-of-age, finding love, understanding life, and so on and so forth. The big moments do not come easy and even when they come, you don’t know when they go past you. Neither do Brahman Naman’s heroes, because they are stupid and self-involved.
