• Despite a decent cast, this unhurried reboot is way too ancient for your liking. It drains your power and patience with its constant moralistic lessons on importance of team work, punishing the bullies, dealing with repercussions of reckless behaviour, value of true friendship, etc.

  • …given the nature of the story, ‘Trapped’ does test your patience after a while. You also doubt the protagonist’s intelligence and sanity. Why would you rent a flat from a dubious agent, in an empty building? A few occurrences seem implausible. How come even fire doesn’t draw any attention? Nonetheless, the mounting tension makes you overlook these flaws and a bloated run time. ‘SH** happens’!

  • What essentially works for ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is its relevance. It stands out because no matter how old the tale, it holds significance especially today, when smart phones and selfies have turned us all into beauty loving beasts.

  • Leading to the big Kong vs Godzilla (2020) clash, if you don’t mind some shallow, video game-esque entertainment, this one doesn’t disappoint.

  • The blaring ‘Commando commando’ background during the action scenes is strikingly outdated. Overstretched and uninspiring, this film is reminiscent of a poor man’s Abbas Mustan film. Even decent action cannot salvage this dreary supposed crime thriller.

  • Sad yet uplifting, frightening yet inspirational, Lion breaks your heart into a thousand pieces and puts them back together in the end. It makes you believe in miracles and embrace hardships by celebrating courage and resilience in its own unique way.

  • While the visuals and special effects lack finesse, the film compensates for it with its riveting story. The second half keeps you on the edge of your seat as the submarines go head-to-head, firing torpedoes while dodging and defending themselves. Despite the hitches, this underwater thriller is worth a watch. It leaves you in awe of the soldiers, who lay their lives for their country.

  • If you love horror as a genre, skip this one and revisit the 2002 film instead or perhaps, watch Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s latest MSG film. That’s bound to give you the creeps.

  • The Great Wall doesn’t have a single dull moment, thanks to the visuals in 3D. But if you seek something deeper, beyond the spectacle of fantasy war movie tropes, this one’s quite forgettable.

  • This business drama falls short of being a powerful biopic but if you are a loyal customer of McDonald’s, a budding businessman or a Michael Keaton fan, you’ll like it.
