• Uri: The Surgical Strike, the first of the many political films to follow this year, has set the tone of the 2019 elections.

  • Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a genuine attempt at educating people, but lacks lustre. You can give this a skip. Because ‘when you getting gold, why go for tamba?’

  • Though Taapsee has little role in the first half, she steers the film in the second half as the resolute and slightly diffident lawyer. Ashutosh Rana, who is so used to playing the villain in films, does come across as a little exaggerated at points, but refined dialogues save him. A special mention to Manoj Pahwa, who portrays Bilal’s painful and emotional breakdown with finesse.

    All said and done, Mulk is a voice that needs to be heard. Make time for it this weekend.

  • Soorma is more a drag than a flick. It is a shame because this was Bollywood’s chance to regale the audience with an inspiring story of a sportsman, whose return to hockey after a life-threatening incident was nothing less than miraculous. The film falls supremely short of harnessing dramatic potential and is just another hackneyed run-of-the-mill biopic. A champion is turned into a colourless Bollywood hero.

  • Deadpool 2 requires your full attention, from the beginning to the post-credits scene. Those scenes are packed with surprises and you’ll be sorry if you walk out quickly.
    Go for Deadpool 2. You need this after Avengers Infinity War.

  • Avengers: Infinity War leaves you breathless, and wanting more. It is the God of all Marvel films.

  • Beyond The Clouds isn’t a spectacular film and is quite flawed with its occasional underwhelming narrative and storytelling. Yet, there are moments that do leave you with a smile, and at some points, does actually make you think that we can always go beyond the clouds.

  • October is shorn of any sort of melodrama. Yet, leaves you with a lump in your throat.

  • Pari is different from other Bollywood horror films. Yes. But, we still have a long, long way to go in the genre.

  • If you are okay with a movie with an invincible hero, who can take down 20 or 30 men at a time and if you can put up with an overdose of sentiment, then you can like Vedalam. And don’t bother about that frame during the end credits which says that the film is dedicated to all women. It has nothing to do with the film whatsoever. Seems like Siva has used it as an answer to all those who ask, “But what is the takeaway from the film?”
