• Movies like Slumdog Millionaire and Life Of Pi have excelled before with their Indian settings. But even those celebrated movies haven’t had the pure intimacy of Lion. This one’s a gem of a film. One that takes an already spectacular story and turns it into an absolute sublime experience. Those multiple Oscar nominations are much deserved.

  • While the actors give it their best shot, Rangoon just isn’t able to tell its story with consistency. The movie tries to pack in too many set pieces and ideas in one narrative. Its choice of keeping the love triangle with jealousy and sacrifice isn’t the most inspired piece of writing either. Rangoon looks like a beautiful picture but it offers very little soul to support its epic goals. 

  • If you’ve grown up on a staple diet of action films and you worship the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis as gods, John Wick 2 is the definite chapter in your murderous holy book. But If you’re someone who despises the sight of gory action, this film has enough self aware critique to earn your difficult nod too. In the same vein as the movie’s excessive themes, John Wick: Chapter 2 should be called a modern action classic.

  • Running Shaadi could’ve really been a different comedy. It had the raw potential of a unique and innovative film. But the lackof focussed direction leaves it high and dry.

  • The Lego Batman Movie is a thrill a minute ride. It features Batman in a gangster cum superhero mode, where he’s respected but not really loved by all. It’s the perfect parody to the Batman idea. Perfectly self-deprecating this movie explores the Batman legend with great tongue-in-cheek effect. It also has some iconic moments, like an all-white Batman. It’s audacious, brilliant and definitely a super powered comedy.

  • Director/writer Subhash Kapoor knows the legal system like an absolute pro. His setup for the actors is authentic but his ideas aren’t all that strong. The second half of the film especially tries to pack in too much drama, melodrama and twists. But the actors bring in the requisite restraint and make Jolly LLB 2 an absolute delight.

  • Both halves put together Kaabil serves up a staple fare of romance, action and drama. There’s some peppy music on offer as well. But none of the film’s frills match up to the Hrithik Roshan’s efforts. He carries this film on his capable shoulders. His perfectly nuanced performance is the reason you’ll enjoy the thrills of Kaabil.       

  • . While the story and ideas aren’t all new or refreshing, Raees’ big play comes from its nostalgic treatment. This is a film for SRK fans and those who’ve grown up on a staple fare of Hindi pot boilers. Heroes, action, dialogue, romance and music this one has the whole jingbang.

  • The Founder and it’s recreation of the ’50s and ’60s American culture and capitalism is insightful and enriching. It skips on the McDonalds story on Wall Street completely, but it does do complete justice to the story of Ray Kroc taking over the McDonalds business from the simple and unassuming McDonalds brothers. This film just like the McDonald’s service model and burger is quick, clean and leaves you thoroughly satisfied.

  • This film is insightful and dark, a certified entry into the indie and art cinema stable. If you like your films to be gritty and real, Haraamkhor is a real mean machine.
