• You want a story. You want good dialogue, not the corny words you are hearing.

    You want an emotional connect. You want a tighter film.

    Sadly, with Padmaavat, that’s not what you get.

  • Running Shaadi with the tackily beeped out dot.com gets 1 star, while Brijendra Kala (who plays Sadh’s maternal uncle) and Jha add half a star more.

  • Madaari is not a film that will stay with you as you, in your day to day routine, succumb to the pressure and become part of the corruption that ails our system…

  • More than anything else, what Meghna Gulzar’s Talvar does is bring home that horrifying reality — that the life you knew could, in a blink, get flushed down the toilet, like an ‘alleged’ murder weapon maybe, never to be seen again.

  • Madhuri Dixit is a fantastic actor and the role of a strong minded rural woman who is willing to fight for her rights is not beyond her. Do watch her in Mrityudand and you’ll know what I mean. Here, she is saddled with a flawed script; something that she is not able to rise above. Meanwhile, you could watch this movie for Juhi Chawla. She is a revelation and we really hope the film industry takes notice!

  • The confrontations between Rajjo and Sumitra Devi should have been impactful, with the resounding echo when two strong personalities clash. Sadly, they don’t.

    These are major drawbacks that bring down a potentially good film.

  • Asha Bhosle’s effort in Mai is applause-worthy.

  • It won’t be a happily after ever at the box office because Jodi Breakers, a film that had a lot of potential, is seriously flawed. There could have been comedy, there could have been romance, there could have been moments that make you go Awwww!

  • The script could have been more nuanced; some of the casting could have been better; the final product, for want a better word, could have been ‘more finished.’ And these desires only crop up because the film is helmed by the highly capable Raj Kumar Gupta.

  • It’s a mish-mash alright. But it is also a successful, feelgood film. You’ll enjoy yourself as you watch it. Never mind that you’ll most probably forget it soon after you leave the darkened environs. And, hey, don’t forget to take the hankies along.
