• What should a biopic deliver is a question that will garner various responses. A historian would want it to be a record of our times so that it could have resonance in the future. A filmmaker would seek dramatic points in the subject’s life that would render a compelling narrative. A sociologist would want to assess if the person’s life had any significant impact on society. We would like to stick with the one in the disclaimer: “this film is meant solely for the purpose of entertainment”.

  • Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif-starrer is a half-baked love story…

  • If one must watch a fictional account of a natural disaster, we can always turn to Hollywood blockbusters which have done it too well and too often. This just seems like watching an ’80s Hindi movie for an hour-and-a-half and then an ’80s shark movie for another 10 minutes.

  • Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan’s fantasy tale of retribution suffers due to mediocre execution…

  • This socially-awkward construct lends itself to such compelling material that even a compilation of reaction shots would suffice. But writers Shantanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial capitalise on the uneasiness of being in this pickle to script hilarious sequences that would leave you in splits.

  • Arjun Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra fail to deliver on their potential…

  • What doesn’t kill you, makes you more resilient. And if you survive the version of Beelzebub in this film, you surely have the liver for heart-pounding horror.

  • Debutant director Amar Kaushik establishes the setting elaborately but doesn’t manage to deliver on the writing. A film like this required a steady hand to carefully balance the chills and thrills along with the outlandish one-liners, ensuring neither is watered-down by the other.

  • Akshay Kumar’s portrayal of Tapan Das is convincing and effective…

  • Soorma applauds a deserving figure who has received national honours but sadly, hasn’t been celebrated with the same fervour. A worthy hat-tip!
