• A film like Pink is so imperative that everyone must watch it. We as a nation keep telling our girls, our daughters and our wives to behave a certain way, to dress a certain way, to even talk a certain way so that they are not misread or misunderstood.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Kapoor and Sons beautifully delves deep into human emotions and easily makes it as one of the finest films of the year so far.  

  • The film does have a couple of flaws. It tends to get a bit slow and manipulative in between. But these are small hiccups in a film that besides telling an inspiring, fearless story briefly comments on the need to bring up our daughters as fearlessly as we bring up our sons. Shabana Azmi nails it in that last scene.
    I walked out with moist eyes and a lump in my throat, and that’s saying a lot.

  • Airlift, on one hand, is very real but at times fails to keep the audience on the edge of their seats that one would expect from a rescue thriller. Raja Krishna Menon manages to build tension but not enough to pause you from stuffing your face with that bag of popcorn. And then the need to insert those songs in between that robs a thriller from its pace and impact. Despite that it makes for a great weekend watch.

  • Overall, despite Amitabh’s gyan on pyar, ishq, mohabbat, despite him going overboard with his analogies between life and shatranj, the film doesn’t give you much insight into anything.
    It’s an emotional thriller with an ending that you can see from a mile yet is impactful. Watch it once. It won’t hurt.  

  • I feel Shagun Batra dealt with the same issue in Ek Main Aur Ek Tu a shade better, devoid of any dramatics, real and urbane. But Tamasha, despite bringing in a touch of tamasha, is a one-time watch for sure.

  • … the film raises an important question on what’s right and what’s wrong. A film that sparks off a debate is such a rarity in Hindi films.

  • Most of all Bajrangi Bhaijaan makes you feel proud, proud of the fact that we come from a secular country like India where a Muslim director takes the biggest Muslim superstar, christens him Bajrangi and makes him chant Jai Shri Raam a million times in a film that releases on EID! Watch it. It’s a fun family watch.
