• This Khoobsurat may not have the realistic charm of its predecessor and certain twists seem abrupt. But it is the convincing performances by Aamir, Fawad, Ratna and Kirron that manage to lift the storyline. And when little things go wrong, Fawad’s intense gaze helps you forget them. Bollywood may have just found its Mr Darcy.

  • The performances from the lead pair largely fill the gaps in the story telling, but then a biopic relies heavily on the director’s craft, which in this case fails to impress. There are flashes of brilliance, yes, but on the whole Mary Kom fails to dazzle.

  • …given that Emraan is back as the roadside Romeo hero, and that Bollywood has well trained us to go easy on the logic bit, ‘Raja Natwarlal’ could just be a watchable fare.

  • There’s no story, no script and the worst CG ever, but there may be a chuckle or two. Perhaps that’s you laughing at yourself for having to lead such a dog’s life for 140 minutes to be precise.

  • Give this one a watch. That’s the least you can do. Or should I say that’s the list you can do.

  • A few rough edges aside, the lead pair is the reason to give this film a watch. Alia and Varun are to Humpty Sharma… what Ranveer and Anushka were to Band Baajaa Baaraat. This film may not be as riveting as Band Baajaa…but it’s the chemistry that makes the film, right from the backbone to the soul.

  • An average combination of fun and mystery…After a promising start, the story unnecessarily meanders into a family drama towards the end and you are left wondering where is the detective. But she is busy wiping off her tears with her dupatta.

  • The plot is fast-paced but highly indulgent. The hero seeks revenge. The villain doesn’t mind being killed. A cop who doesn’t know which villain he must side with. The question marks become hard to ignore after a point.

    Watch the film for Riteish and Riteish alone just to see how effortlessly he slips out of his farcical ‘Humshakals’ pinafore into the heinous hood of ‘Ek Villain’.

  • Humshakals could be one of those classic cases of the after party being a little better than the real party. Because after 159 minutes of, let’s not get into what that was, it’s the behind-the-scenes shots that actually make you laugh, if at all.

  • Citylights follows the graph of impoverishment, exploitation and the eventual rebellion. The film is as breathless as its protagonists, but there is a certain poetry in its treatment that leaves a mark. Given its premise, some might say it’s old wine in a new bottle. But this bottle’s certainly a keeper.
