Paloma Sharma's Film Reviews
Lost in a world of its own, the film forgets to engage the viewer. The makers of the film might need to offer free tea at the screenings to give the audience an incentive to stay awake.
The kindest thing I can say about Ishqedarriyaan is that it is yawn worthy.
The visuals are pleasant. The acting is good. The story is good enough. But not one factor in the film pushes itself beyond this line, towards greatness.
For a film with such immense potential, Tomorrowland plays it too safe.
An out-and-out vanity project that takes itself far too seriously, Surkhaab lacks the strength to go all the way either to become a masala thriller or to blossom into an insightful take on the exploitation of immigrants. Because it wants to do both, it ends up doing neither.
… is a refreshingly, brutally honest film which ends up making the tiny mistake of adding an emotional, clichéd ending.
Although certain scenes in the film could have been infinitely more powerful had the background score been stronger, one must laud Bose’s use of deafening silence and Laila’s wails in a scene at the hospital towards the end of the film.
For those who haven’t watched Parinda, Broken Horses could perhaps be a moving, serious watch. But for those who have already been blown away by Chopra’s original, Broken Horses pales in comparison…
Though there are more flaws in the film’s execution, at the heart of it Leela is a genuinely intriguing, if slightly predictable story and the twist at the end could have been a game changer had it been played out better.
Nevertheless, critical analysis is not going to make much of a difference for this film is clearly a one woman show and as far as the film is concerned, it is always Sunny in Rajasthan.
Furious 7 is more of a montage of fond memories than it is a movie.
Largely entertaining but not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea; as far as this one is concerned, you come for the action and you stay for the drama.
It is difficult to understand why Koepp, Depp, Paltrow, Bettany and Aronson agreed to make the film.
Mortdecai, eventually, is but a joke — an inside joke, which only the above mentioned five persons will find amusing. The rest of us must suffer through it.
Paddington is a heart-warming family story but it ultimately succumbs to the Disney template with a happy ending that’s unbearably sweet.
Paddington also imparts practical life lessons in a way that is neither patronising nor insulting to the intelligence of kids.
Alone is a story that is forced to come together by unknown forces, to which Bhushan Patel contributes very little. There seems to be very little logic or sense of direction behind the scenes, that go on for so long that you feel like you’re watching an Ashutosh Gowariker film.
