• A disturbingly intimate portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy, ‘Jackie’ is a film that unmasks her in such a tender yet objective manner; you feel like an intruder who is tailing the first lady of America and a widow in her most trying time. Still, this is when director Pablo Larraín shows you just what Jacqueline was made of.

  • While there may not be much of a Shaadi, there’s definitely a lot of fun running around that you may want to check out.

  • The movie does get heavy during the middle, but if you’re a fan of its previous outing, you will patiently chuckle and wait for the goodies. And yes, there is a song and dance number at the end, which still continues to mock the brawny superhero and the genre he represents.

  • Marketed as a ‘festival’ film, Alif has many good points, along with a strong story, which shows how an orthodox approach to education, in this case in Islam, can ruin lives; both young and old. However, execution and performances fail this film from rising above being anything more than a film with a ‘message’. The actors are shrill and over the top in their performances barring Danish, who plays it so understated that his emotions barely come through. Neelima is the only saving grace, as she brings a certain warmth and humanity to this bleak landscape.

  • Its climax though, unravels so cleanly, that the build-up seems like a waste. However, at the end they leave enough of a story that you wonder whether the next movie in the franchise is a reboot or a sequel.

  • It could have been good film, but the undoing of Coffee With D is its post-production. The film is let down by shoddy editing and a bad dubbing job where entire sentences are muted and out of sync. A story that has potential is ruined by poor execution that distracts you from the plot.

  • Logic takes a hike, with a stabbed Laura running around for 20 minutes solving mysteries and a superior Matrix-level hacker being unable to get beyond the settings on the social media site, yet it’s entertaining. You end up following illogical plot points, and want to see just how the story ends. The pay-off is goofy, sure. But it’s still a good film to catch up on a late night with friends over.

  • Most animated movies try to deliver a message and end up sounding preachy. Sing too, has one — once you hit rock bottom, there’s nowhere else to go but up. The sheer heart with which its characters live and convey the sentiment, is incredible.

  • ‘Collateral Beauty’ is a tearjerker heavy on emotions. But at times, it gets a little overbearing and even the dry humour employed makes the suffering feel endless. You hope that when the three actors enter Howard’s life, there would be some comic relief. But philosophy flies thick and fast, from minor characters as well.

  • Trolls is a fail-safe film that young parents can take their kids to, and hopefully enjoy a few chuckles themselves.
