• As India hurtles ahead to match the developed world, it is only logical that her cinema follows suit. Thus, we need more films that send out a strong social message and don’t brush perceived taboos such as mental health, feminine hygiene, and sex education under the carpet.

    Do watch this one – it is an interesting story about an incredible man.

  • ‘Kaalakaandi’ tries a fresh approach – it’s for a niche audience with some edgy scenes and bawdy dialogues – but I am not sure if this is everyone’s cup of tea. Watch it if you must. Saif – in top form here – will keep you entertained, even if the film fails to.

  • As the film unravels, it gets as clumsy and annoying as Varun’s character. I laughed a bit and was interested for a while on how they would manage to arrange the money they needed, but eventually I was too bored to even care.

    Watch it if you must. You wouldn’t really regret it if you even give this one a miss.

  • I can’t help compare ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ to ‘The Lunchbox’ and feel this one just doesn’t tug at the heartstrings like the latter, which was a heartwarming tale that unfolded over inanimate letters.

  • The sets look fancy and the production is slick but it just doesn’t come together as an entertaining watch. None of the original songs has recall value, the tracks that work are remixes of popular 90s’ songs.

    I was disappointed with ‘Golmaal Again’ and I really wanted my money back.

  • Despite these flaws, there’s much to like in this story. ‘Chef’ is a little over indulgent but makes the ride worthwhile.

  • Omung Kumar’s ‘Bhoomi’ is, to say the least, a disturbing film. The discomfort doesn’t stem just from the dark motifs of rape and revenge, but also from the director’s treatment of these sensitive issues.

  • …despite the flaws, I enjoyed ‘Lucknow Central’. In this nauseating Bollywood milieu of romances and revenge sagas, this one makes an honest attempt to break the monotony.

  • The thing is there doesn’t seem to be a single tangible plot point that seems to make sense in the entire scheme of things. The protagonist’s manipulations seem contrived and superfluous. And despite, the dialoguebaazi and the Bollywood masala, the end product is bland and completely forgettable.

  • ‘A Gentleman’ is a slick production that will keep you entertained. Just keep your expectations in check.
