• Almost everything about Zid can be best described as botched…

  • The only thing Zid has going for it is the atmospheric chills it offers by way of perennially grey skies, dense foliage around the bungalow and beyond, and the sense of distant melancholy the camera lends to the scenes.

  • Happy Ending, at its core, is pretentious and doesn’t quite live up to expectations, save for Govinda, who lights up the screen with his mere presence and those legendary moves.

    In a film that every cast member is so desperately trying to fit in, he is the only one who actually manages to convince us that he truly belongs there and he knows it.

  • …the story of a paranormal investigation gone wrong, both for the film and the viewer…For horror film lovers, 3 AM will evoke more chuckles than chills.

  • …if you love dancing and have an ear for British-Punjabi music, watch this movie solely for the extended dance-off towards the end when Dr Zeus makes an appearance too.

  • The Hundred-Foot Journey has a few ingredients that go into making a cracker of a dish — two acting stalwarts who light up the screen with their mere presence, several gastronomically evocative shots, and beautiful locales.

    Unfortunately, it’s got the recipe all wrong.

  • Lekar Hum Deewana Dil would have done much better for itself had it tried to find its original voice, instead of pandering to a vague idea of what sells when it comes to love stories.

    Because who has ever cracked the code for that?

  • Saddled with glaring plot holes, caricaturish supporting cast, unintentionally funny punchlines, and Himesh Reshammiya, The Xpose is like Gunda, with better production values

  • 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.

  • …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.
