• In an era of which Bollywood is increasingly passing off pulpy apologies for demagoguery for cinema, Gully Boy could have been a fitting riposte. It just doesn’t go far enough to pose discomfiting questions in keeping with the art of the street rapper. But all said and done, Gully Boy can be whole-heartedly commended for its craft, fascinating characters and RANVEER SINGH. He absolutely kills the slow-burning rapper act. What’s more, he does with a lot of energy to spare.

  • Ek Ladki Ko Dekha… goads the audience to think differently without trying to deviate from its primary purpose, which is to deliver entertainment. It does the latter well enough and yet does not overly dilute its off-kilter vision. No mean feat that.    

  • Manikarnika is agonizingly soulless. Platitudes piled upon synthetic platitudes do not add up to great cinema, especially when none of the film’s war cries delivers any bang for its buck. Save yours and give the film a miss unless you like the sound of misfires.

  • Anupam Kher must be commended for putting in a lot of hard work, but his portrayal simply doesn’t work

  • Vicky Kaushal plays a steady hand and delivers the goods to an extent that, at times, seems wasted on it

  • Simmba is the kind of film that derides toxic masculinity while ill-advisedly celebrating unbridled virility as a necessary component of law enforcement.

Simmba advocates throwing due process out the window and embracing another flagrant form of lawlessness. And that can only be dangerous.

  • Zero, riding on SRK’s back, reaches for the stars. But its astral ambitions are thwarted by a lack of imagination and genuine understanding of the minds of people struggling to ward off undeserved ridicule and earn rightful recognition. But whoever expects such niceties from a movie that rarely rises above the level of unalloyed bilge?

  • Jason is a potent force, bringing forth the dimensions of the struggle of a hero who is at first reluctant to jump into battle

  • While Sushant Singh Rajput does much of the heavy lifting with a great deal of flair, the biggest asset is Sara
