• Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra’s Film is Engaging and Enjoyable

  • Despite the appallingly spelled title, Judgementall Hai Kya is to be lauded for de-stigmatising mental illness and spinning an engaging, entertaining yarn while doing so.

  • Super 30 anchors and succeeds solely because of Hrithik’s grounded performance in the film. Pankaj Tripathi is yet another treat in the film as he plays the corrupt politican with brilliance and ease. There aren’t any clear cut heroes in the film despite it being all about a larger than life story. There are no big dance numbers (not a lot anyway) where the hero is almost invincible. In fact, it tells you the important tale of being your own hero. You can definitely show this film for a motivational class and if you’re a Hrithik Roshan fan, you’ll definitely cherish this.

  • Very few socioeconomic and political dramas and thrillers in India are able to achieve what Article 15 has—much less those based on true events—but Sinha, whose films have walked on to have a voice that is angrier, more vocal, and considering the politically unstable times we live in, all the more necessary for those reasons, packs in so much narrative grace and artistic visual filmmaking verve, it’s hard to look away through the 140 minutes it powers through.

  • Kabir Singh is a good watch mainly because of how well the main character is balanced by Shahid Kapoor. Vanga doesn’t lose sight of the journey and doesn’t forget that amidst all the existentialist dilemmas and song placements, he’s telling a modern tale of a toxic male which cannot be justified but has to be told in an entertaining, compelling way. And that it does!

  • Like with most biopics that are instead hagiographies, director Omung Kumar (Bhoomi, 2017) and his team of writers — there are three — deify the central protagonist more than any director could ever have done for Rajinikanth’s star power. Oberoi, who delivers ably and with grace and respectfulness as Modi, seems to have bagged the role of a lifetime.

  • The problem with the film is that it seems confused – should it be a candyfloss campus flick with hot chicks and hunky dudes or should it be a candyfloss campus flick with sports and tense moments? It ends up being neither. What remains is the candyfloss. Which, in retrospect, isn’t such a bad thing as you go for the movies to have a good time and be entertained. Student of the Year entertains but is too vanilla to have any lingering taste. In Hindi film parlance, I’d say, it’s a decent timepass film worth the popcorn. But frankly, it’s time for the students to graduate.

  • Karan Johar’s Message of Love in the Time of War Is a Cinematic Treat…

  • Luka Chuppi is an enjoyable watch that is directed at a young audience who will find it very relatable. It also subtly touches upon various relevant and timely social issues. Go for it and have a good time at the movies!

  • Frustrated with the interference from the Gandhis and the apparent unwillingness of Manmohan Singh to set the record straight, Baru resigns and writes his memoir, The Accidental Prime Minister (accidental as Singh never contested an election but was a Rajya Sabha member). Sales are sluggish, until the PMO denounces the book: at which point, it becomes a bestseller. Gutte should hope his film meets with the same good fortune.
