• Writers Juhi Chaturvedi and Nilesh Maniyar ensure that the film’s morbid subject is rendered in a light, accessible manner. But while the dialogue sets a friendly tone, the background score takes it a bit too far and sometimes, seems distractingly upbeat for the proceedings. Director Shonali Bose is certain of what she wants to achieve through this story — depict a crushing yet inspiring story of a girl who has accepted that the odds aren’t in her favour and yet, hopes to get even with life.

  • War packs in a bit of everything. Chase sequences on supercars over snow-covered terrains, and also on sportbikes — zipping through cobblestone streets across Europe. Then, there are vehicles being tossed from the sky and off cliffs to make Rohit Shetty proud. And even the unarmed combat sequences include a jab, stab, and lockdown to tick all the boxes. But when the film’s chief villain and India’s most wanted happens to be called Ilyasi, the joke seems to be on us.

  • This film had tremendous potential just for the one-line brief that may have excited investors to back it. While it packs in some sharp one-liners and furnishes bizarre situations, it doesn’t go beyond that. It’s almost as if the makers were so excited with the very premise that they didn’t bother to figure out where they wanted to take this story.

  • Nitesh Tiwari’s film celebrates friendships that survive the test of time…

  • Releasing on the day ISRO completes a half-century, Mission Mangal seems a timely tribute to the unsung heroes who don’t wear a cape. But for a film that documents a singularly inspiring story, the writing doesn’t manage to conjure the thrill surrounding this epic achievement.

  • This Sidharth Malhotra, Parineeti Chopra film is a scrambled mess…

  • Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao’s film struggles to keep the audience consistently interested…

  • Vikas Bahl’s Super 30 delivers by excessively leaning on Hindi cinema’s oldest formula — detailing an underdog who strives to rise above his circumstances and even helps those less fortunate achieve ultimate glory.

  • Article 15 serves as a bitter reminder of the disdainful atrocities that befalls those who are profiled. The film, however, gets a bit tiring in parts when the message seems to be incessantly hammered down. It also takes the lazy route of literally slipping what it hopes to convey, in the dialogue.

  • This Shahid Kapoor, Kiara Advani adaptation of Arjun Reddy could have been 40 minutes shorter
