• The comic punches are too few and far between, plot twists make little sense and are saddled with glaring loopholes.

    The film’s climax will take you by surprise. Which is not to say that it’s a well-made thriller.

    It just means that you got so engrossed in trying to make sense of this haphazardly put-together story, you didn’t have much time to realise there’d be the big reveal at the end of it for you to apprehend.

  • While August Osage County starts off by giving you a small lump in the throat, it leaves one wondering in the end if you sympathise less with human failings when they are up in your face screaming for attention.

  • …starts off on a promising note but its downward spiral comes faster than one could apprehend.

    Now would be a great time to stop referencing old films if filmmakers really want to break new grounds with fresh story ideas.

  • The first half of War Chhod Na Yaar has the pitch-perfect tone of a war comedy with some real gems that bind the narrative….All said and done though, this is a start. Hope India’s second war comedy will stick to the brief.

  • …everything it shouldn’t be — dowdy, uninteresting, and clumsy.

  • Formulas in Hindi films, no matter how popular or timeless, have been known to run their course in due time. So it comes as a mild disappointment when a film co-produced by Akhtar, a film that looked so promising on paper, fails to deliver.

  • As I see it, what probably started as an interesting story idea — troubled artists, dynamics in a relationship — eventually got buried under the debris of random motifs from previous hits delivered by the Bhatt camp.

  • Aatma does push the boundaries with some mildly grotesque scenes and better production values.

  • I Me Aur Main falters with its plot, does a mild disservice to the ladies and is unreasonably forgiving of its protagonist. If you can get past that, it’s a film you wouldn’t mind watching once.

  • To put it mildly, Zila Ghaziabad is assembly-line garbage.
