• Vijay Ratnakar Gutte’s The Accidental Prime Minister is so unsubtle in its disdain for the Nehru-Gandhi family and the Congress, that it could almost pass off as a creation of the social media cell of the ruling party.

  • No one does masala films like Rohit Shetty. But when he decides to infuse a moral lecture into the mix, that is where a film falters. Simmba suffers from the same curse.

  • Stree has its flaws, but is one of the better horror comedies to come out of the Bollywood stable in recent times. Watch the film for its satire and stellar performances.

  • With everything so glossed up, the climax does not hit you as hard as the original, even though it is literally delivered with a thud. If you are satisfied with a pale, insipid version of Sairat, go watch Dhadak.

  • It is not child’s play to make a biopic, particularly on someone whose life has been splashed all over the tabloids, in excruciating detail. Given the kind of biopics we have seen in commercial mainstream Bollywood so far, Sanju has definitely raised the bar. Watch Sanju for Ranbir Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, the laughs, the tears… in a nutshell, everything.

  • Rani Mukerji is delightful as the enthusiastic teacher with a never-say-die spirit. Hichki rests on her shoulders and she does not let it falter. Her playful camaraderie with her brother (Hussain Dalal in a charming role) is genuine and one of the more enjoyable parts of the film.

  • Although the identity of the informer remains a mystery till the end, it is no secret how Raid will end. But the rivetting battle between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla makes the journey to the finish worth your while.

  • Even seasoned actors like Rati Agnihotri and Pankaj Tripathi are off their mark with their loud acting in Julie 2. Ravi Kishan is the silver lining; he looks effortless as the South superstar, Ravi Kumar.
    Do yourselves a favour, give Julie 2 a miss.

  • There is a slight touch of humour at the expense of the Mumbai police, that is quite enjoyable. But it is the mystery at the centre of the story that is the true winner of the film.

  • Flaws aside, A Gentleman makes for an entertaining watch. If a not-too-serious, masala film is your ideal weekend watch, then this film does not disappoint.
