• Rustom despite having an interesting plot tries to play safe, please everyone and resorts to Bollywood formulae of forced humour and even more forced insipid songs.

  • Mohenjo Daro presents the age-old story of good versus bad in times so alien to all of us. Despite having a spectacular set, the film doesn’t give any great insights into history or the civilisation. There is hard work for sure. Full points to the team for recreating that era. I felt transported to that era, bought into their stories also but I feel sorry that the film didn’t cut much ice with me. Watch it for the sheer magnificence, the sheer scale.

  • If you can suspend disbelief, surgically detach your brains, laugh at illogical buffoonery that rolls out in the name of humour, then my dear friend, you DON’T need to watch this film. You need help.

  • Sultan is a refreshing change to all Bollywood films made on sports.. It shows the story of a slacker/loser becoming a winner, fighting some personal battles and equating the victory with his personal win as well. Beautiful.  Sultan is indeed rare. This, only, if you forget Lagaan, Chak De India, Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Kai Po Che, Patiala House, Iqbal, Dil Bole Hadippa, Sala Khadoos, Azhar, Ferrari Ki Sawari, Hawa Hawai, Paan Singh Tomar…phew!

  • Raman Raghav lacks the vulnerability of Ugly. It’s just black. It could be in a Swiss account. In theatres it just seemed pointless to me.

  • The first half of the film scores high on the screenplay as it seamlessly shifts from one character’s story to the other, taking us through Punjab’s gorgeous houses and fields.
    The second half, however, loses its focus, like most Hindi films, and starts addressing love stories.
    I think we all must watch Udta Punjab and educate ourselves.

  • The film doesn’t engage you much. I, not even for once, felt the need to investigate the case or make whodunnit guesses or sit on the edge of my seat, which is not a great thing for an emotional thriller Te3n aims to be.

  • If your idea of humour is red ants crawling over a disabled man’s crotch or an old man farting as he mounts a bike or a blind man being asked to jump into a waterless pool, then I have two things for you.
    1.       You need help.
    2.       God bless you. 

  • The story is sad. The treatment is bad. It is long and loopy and manipulative but it hurts more because it is based on a true story.

  • Azhar could have been bad-ass, controversial, exciting, masaledaar… alas the simplistic safe treatment leaves it pretty bland.
