• With Manmarziyaan, Anurag Kashyap finally unleashes his version 2.0 which is significantly different than his old self. Kashyap 2.0 has much less darker ideas about life. And the ideas are far more pragmatic. In fact, Anurag Kashyap 2.0 is closer to Karan Johar and Aanand L. Rai than to the Kashyap of old as a result of which Manmarziyaan doesn’t come across as a film that’s true to his revered body of work.

  • Overall, Race3 is marked by bad acting and ridiculous twists. The laughable subplots and vacuous humor make it a somnolent affair that even Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor fail to spice up. Sadly, the supporting cast is just terrible, At 52, Salman should seriously reconsider playing such clichéd characters, especially after having played some very interesting characters in recent films like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan.

  • For the last one hour the film seems to be really struggling to find some sort of a closure that comes at least thirty minutes too late. However, the biggest disappointment of the film, however, is Vikramaditya Motwane’s uninspired direction which makes an average screenplay look rather pedestrian. The end result is a self-indulgent superhero flick that lacks both spine and purpose.

  • …sadly, Mukkabaaz fails to pack a punch even if we look at it merely from the perspective of entertainment. Yes, the style is very much there but even that looks rather stale. But, the worst part is that just like in Raman Raghav 2.0, Anurag Kashyap seems to lack the clarity as to what it is that he is trying to tell us through his movie. The end result is a film that feels like a sermon lacking purpose and conviction.

  • Overall, Firangi is a film that relies heavily on cliches and does little to offer anything new.

  • …large sections of the film are just plain boring. Also, the film fails to make any strong statement on the criminal justice system or the correctional facilities on offer. What’s heartbreaking is that the ingredients are all there but the problem is that the makers are not thorough with the recipe.

  • Lipstick Under My Burkha does have its moments but ultimately it fails to pack a punch.   

  • Flaws aside, Mom benefits from a good production value that makes it far superior to the Raveena Tandon starrer Maatr. The performances may not be topnotch but they are reasonably good. But ultimately it is a cliché driven film that fails to match its pre-release hype.

  • It wouldn’t be outrageous to describe Begum Jaan as cinematic disaster of epic proportions that not only lacks purpose but also is devoid of entertainment that viewers seek in commercial movies. Let’s look at the various factors that make Begum Jaan a colossal failure.
