• This film has   the most understated performance by John Abraham in recent times. He oozes sincerity in every frame, and tries gamely not to break character and go all berserker-like against the baddies, breaking their necks with bare hands. We wait for that to happen but for once his character uses brains rather than brawns to defeat his enemies…

  • Today, in a world growing more cynical by the minute, we need to be reminded of real heroes who lived and died for their beliefs. Manikarnika manages to reintroduce one of the most awe-inspiring figures from India’s past. A legend gets reborn, at least on screen, and maybe that’s the only reality palatable to us right now…

  • Believe it or faint, but Rangeela Raja is all about curing men of toxic masculinity and the sense of entitlement they have towards female companionship. It’s a cautionary tale against rape culture. Only it does it all in such an over the top and hamfisted manner, that you wonder what was the point of it all.

  • …watch Badhaai Ho for its unique take on the family film sub-genre, as also for some paisa vasool acting by the entire cast. Congratulations indeed to director Amit Ravindernath Sharma for making a hugely entertaining film.

  • Writer Kanika Dhillon has etched real-life situations. The conversations between people carry a ring of reality as well. We see three actual people, and not film tropes or archetypes, trying to make sense of their lives. There is no unnecessary drama in the film. The girl doesn’t get berated for bringing the ghar ki izzat down, nor is the boy beaten up by her relatives. Every situation is dealt with a certain restraint and maturity.

  • Sanju tells you superstars are humans too. They can make bad, even horrible decisions — like every other human being on earth and we shouldn’t be quick to judge them. Rajkumar Hirani, the director has made a hugely entertaining film for the audience. And for his friend Sanjay Dutt, he has given a vehicle to finally tell his version of events and say to his detractors  — bas ho gaya yaar!

  • It won’t be wrong to say that it’s one of the most fiercely patriotic films you’ll ever see. That a female star holds centre stage makes for a welcome change. Alia Bhatt’s histrionics alone are worth the price of the ticket.

  • Majid Majidi has always conveyed the truth about what’s happening in society through his films. He takes a harsh look at the lives of the common people and strives to find beauty beneath the grime.

  • In short, the dramatic scenes between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla alone are worth the price of the ticket. Watch the film if you like manly heroes quitely going about their jobs and villains who can be gentlemen at times.

  • All-in-all, while Mubarakan suffers from a strained and predictable plot, its silliness does make you laugh. So go watch the film if indulging in there hours of escapist comedy is your game.
