• Aurangzeb is one of those little surprises that makes you look forward to the director’s next venture, even if you aren’t completely satisfied with what was served this time. Just for the thought put in the story, just for making an otherwise done-to-death theme interesting, Aurangzeb is worth the watch.

  • I don’t mind a serious film, I don’t mind socio-politics, I don’t mind satire, I certainly don’t mind quirky, dark humor. What I don’t get though is why a film can’t pick one or two of these themes and stick to it through and through – be there, build-up on it and end like the makers believed in what they were making, without any external pressures.

  • I am Kalam charmingly visualizes the life of a little boy who has to work to sustain himself and his family. Its simplicity is works as both an advantage and a disadvantage. The easy-going narrative is a pleasant watch but too-good-to-be-true plot is distracting.

  • Guzaarish is an art museum. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the perfectly chiseled curator and Hrithik Roshan an almost statue. And this once, it’s not his acting I’m complaining about, the script demands him to stay put. You are watching them etched in many exotic, exquisite paintings frame after frame. So, what if the very basis of the story is pointless and there are gaping holes which are difficult to digest.

  • Love Sex Aur Dhokha is not watchable just for you to decipher its comment on us as individuals or society. There are plenty that do that. It is not something you should go for just to see the ace-class production values. Nor is it just for seeing something different. It is one of those one-offs that are made worthy by the whole package.

  • An adorable experience. A drama-free which by definition includes melodrama-free execution. Super-witty dialogues that are timed superbly. And a plot that flows smoothly. What more can we ask for?

  • For the longest time now, I’ve been waiting for an Amitabh film that I really enjoyed. Finally, it’s here. I wouldn’t want to adjoin any more superlatives to his performance and the challenges he must have faced in getting it all right, I would want you to go and find out for yourself.

  • We were just getting used to a superficial attitude of making a film about the woman protagonist, but end up seeing the man claim glory. This one is equally Ranbir’s and Konkona’s. Yes, even though the title of the film contains the protagonist’s name. For a long-long time I’ve been watching out for a Hindi romantic film where the story is about the lead pair. That’s it. Their emotions, their turmoil and nothing else. Love Aaj Kal was close and Wake Up Sid comes even closer.

  • Mokashi does a wonderful job of making this a light peek into the hard work without letting us get too sentimental or too stark a depiction of his hardship. He doesn’t introduce us to the darker side of Phalke’s life at all. His insecurities, the craze for his work completely taking over his life to the extent that his and his family’s health is at stake.
