• Kaabil isn’t the shipwreck it had been made out to be. But that isn’t saying much, as despite going in with seriously low expectations it will be difficult to justify spending a national holiday watching this film that extends to a run time of just over two hours.

  • Star Wars fans simply dare not miss it, but for the rest, Rogue One is a generic Sci-Fi thriller which doesn’t justify the hype that has been surrounding it these past few weeks.

  • What could have been a taut, world-class thriller fizzles out by the end, much like the carbonated drink one would be guzzling while watching the weekend blockbusters.

  • Had the story been a tad bit crisper, it could have been a breezy masterpiece.

    Still, a fine effort by Shinde and co, with some valuable lessons for modern-day families, who will in all probability, relate to many scenes and perhaps revaluate their relationships. 

  • It’s a pity, for this is a story of a man who enjoyed unprecedented success despite having the odds stacked against him every step of the way. What could have been a novel way to bring the discussion of sports as a sustainable profession in every household is unlike its titular character in real life, unremarkable.

  • Bold but not beautiful, dark but not sombre, Leena Yadav seems to have struck gold in the desert on her third attempt, and Parched is a must-watch for all. Having said that, the film is a new direction for Indian cinema.

  • Overall, a fairly decent watch, and not just for the bachelors who love their sports, but a family entertainer, albeit of a different kind.

  • Irrfan Khan fans will go for Madaari regardless, but for the rest, it is a run-of-the-mill popcorn thriller, nothing more unfortunately.
