• While SRK is a brand in himself, and a big one at that, it would have helped the film’s creative — not box office — cause to have the courage of its conviction and not turn Raees into the story of a whimpering, secular, sanskari gangster.

  • Vir Das does touch an emotional chord or two as the father of Sikh boys, who has to make a decision between staking their lives at the cost of their religious identities.

    Given these limitations, 31st October could be a one-time watch.

  • Hate Story 3 is not the film that you hate when it ends; you hate yourself for venturing out to watch such a film.

  • The second-half, especially the climax is where the film has scored well and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    Pandey’s Baby, one must say, wouldn’t have been as interesting without the lead troika.

    Go watch Baby for Akki-Kher-Danny troika!

  • Ungli begins with a bang and that’s about it!

  • Director Jaiswal, who wrote Gangs of Wasseypur, seems unable to make up his mind as to how to firmly hold the narrative.

    The result then is a film that fails to make you feel good.

  • Producer-director Prakash Jha has his heart in the right place as he once again chooses a topic — in this film’s case corruption — that is singeing the country more than anything else today but delivers a potion that is but a terrible hodgepodge of Arakshan, Rajneeti and Gangaajal.

  • Unfortunately, the way the story unfolds — and some of the dialogues where cuss words and vulgarity flows freely — gives you an impression that Ruia and producer Veeraj Kumar wanted to take a shortcut to the Box Office — or at least to get the audience inside the theatres — by getting Malik in the act.

  • The problem with JKLS is that it ties not only the audience but also the actors of the film in a tight knot of which neither the plot nor performances, except Oberoi’s, help to break out of.

  • For a spy thriller that takes bits and pieces from Hollywood hits like True Lies and Indian films like My Name is Khan, Vishwaroop fails to excite you with its dull pace and insipid action sequences.
