• For the average Joe, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is exactly what he needs – a bombastic helping of action, mayhem, prancing superheroes, flashy one liners, and even a romantic track to boot.

  • The star cast is pretty good. A special mention has to be made of the ever dependable Revathi, who yet again delivers a convincing act. But of course, it is Kalki who takes your breath away with a superlative performance. Undoubtedly with one of her finest performances in recent years, Kalki lives and breathes Laila with such amazing ease and conviction that she stays in your head for a long time after you have left the theatre.

  • Bhatt’s recent outings have been in the genre of supernatural and 3D horror. This time, in his tech endeavour to create an invisible man, he appears to have overlooked the storyline. Wish he had paid attention to other details as well.

  • Don’t miss it. Even if just to go back to the magical world of nostalgia created so beautifully and earnestly by Banerjee and cinematographer Nikos Andritsakis.

  • If one has to point out drawbacks, some of the twists in the story seem too convenient and the second half dips a wee bit in energy as compared to the first half. But overall, the choice of locations, the performances and the brutally honest take on a story that needed to be told, makes this film a hell of a scary ride but absolutely worth it. Don’t miss it.

  • This might be a director’s attempt at making it all look artistic and ‘hatke’, but what it ends up doing is showing us sights like the not-so-pretty thighs of a dhoti wearing politician. among other unmentionable things.

    Avoid. If feeling nostalgic, watch the original again.

  • ‘Dum Lagaa Ke Haisha’ steadily grows on you and warms the cockles of your heart even before you realise it. By the end of it, you might just want to go and hug the people in your life who you otherwise take for granted.

  • What you mainly take away from this movie is its core; a story (written by Sriram Raghavan) that tells us that most often the situation is the villain. And, perhaps, each of us is capable of turning a criminal when faced with an extreme situation.

  • R Balki has presented the story in a very unconventional way. As the film is set up at the backdrop of film industry, the presence of celebs like Rekha, Anurag Basu, Karan Johar, Raj Kumar Hirani, Mahesh Bhatt, Gauri Shinde and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra gave the film a magnificent look.

  • Helming, navigating and controlling this bridled exposition on anarchy is Akshay Kumar with his career’s best performance. His interpretation of an unsung hero’s stubborn determination to rescue the world from chaos, is mature and restrained, even when pitched against veteran actors with a formidable history of one-upmanship.
