• A historical that kicks off well, flounders in the middle and then serves some good punches in the climax

  • Almost ten years down the line, the Chulbul Pandey franchise is feeling weak and worn out.

  • Sticks to the tried-and-tested format, but falls short of its ambition

  • An overcooked, overstretched comedy that can’t resist playing on the loyalty-to-the-nation theme

  • All the interesting disparate elements in the film don’t come together well enough to build it into a compelling whole

  • Despite there being nothing new and everything predictable about it, War is slick and smart and keeps the audience engaged and absorbed. What irks is the nth iteration of a Muslim trying to prove his loyalty for Bharat. The good Muslim shoved in to balance out the global Islamic terror. Why do it so needlessly and thoughtlessly when the film is anyhow successful enough in its larger aim of providing “entertainment, entertainment, entertainment”?

  • Towards the end a political statement is also shoved in: that the whole country is a strip club where some are paying and others are getting paid to dance. You would do well to pay and see Lopez, Wu and co dance away with sheer abandonment and fun. But chances are that you could well end up finding yourself dancing to their tunes.

  • 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
