• Jolly LLB 2 is a highly entertaining film that also succeeds in delivering some food for thought in a most unsuspecting manner. The film takes swipes at the judiciary, highlights its complexities and flaws, but ultimately reinstates faith in the judicial system. For a courtroom comedy-drama the film has surprisingly high levels of action and suspense. Jolly LLB 2 is a very well made film but it pales in comparison to Jolly LLB. However, Jolly LLB 2 has something for everyone. It’s certainly a must watch if you are an Akshay Kumar fan. As for others, you wouldn’t be disappointed if you do choose to watch it but don’t go expecting another Jolly LLB.

  • While Kung Fu Yoga is an out and out Jackie Chan film, as one would expect, it does feature memorable performances from Sonu Sood, who is also the movie’s distributor for India, and the lovely Disha Patani who is a sight for the sore eyes. Chan, Sood and Patani are of course well supported by the others.  Kung Fu Yoga is nowhere near the best of Jackie Chan. But then we all know that the grandmaster is well past his prime. Be that as it may, Chan still has a few surprises left up his sleeve.

  • Overall, Raees makes for an engaging cinematic experience that takes a departure from the recent films of Shah Rukh Khan. Although Raees does hark back to some of SRK’s early films, it is quite unique in its own right. The film is both raw and gritty and succeeds in transporting us back to the Gujarat of the 1980s.

  • he few shortcomings one can point out can be traced to the technical department. The whole movie was consciously made in an understated tone which is why it feels kind of low-key without too many highs to it. This might avert such audiences who prefer action over dialogue.

  • OK Jaanu has its share of flaws but despite its weaknesses it not only entertains but also makes us think. The film is strictly meant for youngsters, for the older viewers may not be able to connect with it in the same way as younger audiences would.

  • La La Land makes for a wonderful cinematic experience. It is ebullient and so full of life. And, like all good dramas, it is also painful and heartbreaking at times. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling look so good together that one can go on and one watching them forever. It is as if they were born to play Mia and Sebastian. Their chemistry here reminds of Bergman’s and Bogart’s in Casablanca.

  • …is a non-stop entertainer, an absolute laugh riot, from start to finish, but, in order to fully enjoy the film, one needs to be credulous enough to believe anything and everything that’s on offer. In other words, the viewer must be willing to suspend the disbelief concerning the implausibility of the narrative. Once the viewer makes this compromise, Happy Bhag Jayegi will prove to be a rollercoaster of a ride. Aanand L Rai and team have done it again. Here is a family entertainer that just cannot to be missed!

  • Overall, Sultan is an out and out family entertainer that would enthrall the average viewer with its themes of love, sacrifice, success, failure, guilt and redemption.
    The high level of predictability and lack of plausibility of Sultan’s plot may disappoint the sophisticated audiences, but the rest will savor it without any reservations. Salman Khan continues to be on a roll. Another grand box-office opening is on the cards for him.

  • Overall, Shorgul makes for a decent watch. It scores heavily on the acting front and performances alone make it watchable. Kudos to the movie’s ensemble cast! Lalit Pandit’s music adds soul to the film. Shorgul’s strong socio-political commentary succeeds in depicting the dirty side of vote bank politics and in raising pertinent questions about the lack of tolerance that engenders communal hatred. More importantly, it tries to teach us the true meaning of humanity.

  • It is a genre that the West excels at. Films like Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting, Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream, and Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic come to mind. Udta Punjab is certainly not in that class but its socio-political commentary, heavily laced with satire, is nonetheless quite effective. Here is a film that needs to be watched.
