• Sachin: A Billion Dreams does well when it establishes India’s greatest modern hero as a son fueled by the kindness and spirit of his father. This humanization of sorts, of the God of cricket, is a rare event. That’s reason enough to watch and relish this remarkable film on a man who’s inspired billions in the last 28 years.

  • This film is warm, fuzzy and yet thought provoking. It’s a film every new parent needs to watch. It’s definitely one of the best of the year. 

  • Half Girlfriend had the potential to be a real crowd pleaser. The original novel isn’t Romeo & Juliet but it did have its charm. Sadly, the film makes a total meal put of original concept. Its not even half as good as the book its based on. 

  • This movie has its moments. Scenes featuring classic numbers like Mere sapno ki rani from Aradhana and Meri pyaari bindu from Padosan are superb. The seamless mix of comedy, romance and drama is fantastic too. At two hours, the film feels like an absolute breeze. Meri Pyaari Bindu hits a lot of ticks on the check boxes. And that is the strength of this refreshing new romance.

  • Sarkar 3 has the right ideas but it makes a complete mess of its political themes by trying to be quirky for no reason. Had RGV just stuck to intensity and grit, this would’ve been a thrilling comeback for the maverick filmmaker.

  • Baahubali 2 is the pitch perfect follow up to 2015’s Baahubali. While it doesn’t have the same panoramic adventure of its predecessor, it does make up with grand scale and precise execution. This movie is worth the hype. Its worth wading through the crowds and sitting in a theatre seat for 3 hours. This film deserves the moniker of being India’s biggest film. Epics don’t come as glossy and detailed as this epic adventure.

  • For all its flaws, Noor still gets some basic truths bang on. It’s themes of love life and not hate it, and its play on kindness and compassion are its big victories. When the film presents the big bad world and its problems from a shallow teenage perspective, it feels wrong. But when it gets intimate and presents Noor as a bundle of contradictions and emotions, Noor just feels like bright summer sunlight. This film has some great ideas. Thankfully the dodgy execution and lack of depth in writing don’t spoil it all. For the casual viewer, Noor serves up a refreshing new story. One that has a solid heart of gold.

  • Despite all the madness and over the top scenarios, F8 is a thoroughly enjoyable film. You have to take it with a pinch of salt, yes. But the heady experience it offers is spectacularly fun. Vin Diesel is invincible, Dwayne Johnson is in Hulk mode, Jason Statham is a merc with a mouth and Charlize Theron has dreadlocks and a badass Darwin philosophy book. Fast & Furious 8 is pure madcap mayhem.

  • Director Srijit Mukherji talks of a valid concept and the fact that he makes the women look like badass fighters is phenomenal. Had his film’s technical departments lived up to the level of his vision, Begum Jaan would’ve been a resounding story of women empowerment. While the movie does get a lot of things right, it just lacks a little conviction in presenting its powerful ideas.

  • Phillauri is truly a fun film. For romance enthusiasts, this movies got everything. For the casual movie goer, it’s got the right amount of humour. But for the auteur of love, this film and it’s poetic old world charm can weave a spell of magic.
