• Batla House is a needlessly convoluted and garbled interpretation of the 2008 encounter case which entirely sides with the police.

  • With the nation’s conscience keeper Akshay Kumar at the helm and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech featured in a special appearance, the idea behind Mission Mangal quite clearly is to ignite our supposedly latent nationalism.

  • Sonakshi Sinha delivers a sincere performance in a movie that gets lost between convenient laughs and righteous messaging

  • Eventually, the film turns out to be Ranaut’s assertion that she is much misunderstood, but will live the way she wants to

  • Arjun Patiala feels like a Punjabi film masquerading as a Bollywood one. The humour is deliberately rough and rustic and the filmmaking clunky. The hero has a glad eye, uses some utterly banal and incorrect lines about maa behen ki izzat but gets away from it all by giving a self-righteous lecture on consent.

  • Strong performances can’t save this forgettable affair

  • The new adaptation is a loyal tribute to the 1994 original, though a few outdated tropes could well have been reinterpreted

  • A salutary cause and an inspirational story about the triumph of the underdog doesn’t necessarily make an engaging film

  • The entire film, just like the original, is dependent on and propelled by the performance of the star at the centre. And however good Shahid Kapoor might be in living the trauma and angst of the character, you still can’t get away from the sickening male entitlement.

  • Woody, Buzz and the rest of the crew go on an epic road trip in what could well be their last adventure together
