• I enjoyed the first part enormously. The second one comes to life only intermittently. Leaving the theatre, you can’t help wishing that Kattapa had killed the fellow earlier, for us to get a tighter, more economical and perhaps sharper conclusion.

  • Crass, cringe-inducing and downright sordid, this Raveena Tandon rape-and-revenge thriller makes you ask just one question — who writes this stuff?

  • Sonakshi Sinha is breezy when she faces up to the good-looking men in her life. The trouble is that she is a complete klutz as a journalist.

  • The climax is full of fire and faux brimstone and lots of speechifying, as the ladies of easy virtue become a gun-toting ‘fauj’.

  • Other than a few faultlines, this is a superb film that shows us how it is entirely possible to die, irradiated by life.

  • Fairytales do come true and the story of Poorna Malavath is the proof. Her biopic, directed by Rahul bose, does justice to the extraordinary story of a 13-year-old tribal girl climbing Mt Everest.

  • The final nail is the incessant, annoying background music. It blares non-stop and makes this film even longer than it is.
    Naam Shabana leaves you with a niggling question: why create a heroine in the action hero mode, with both mind and heart, and then give her a big bro to ‘help’ her out? This results in second-guessing your biggest asset, wondering if she is a liability.

  • Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri begins well enough but soon falls prey to its languid pace. It only comes alive when Anushka and Diljit Dosanjh are together on screen in Dam Dam. Then it makes you sigh for what could have been if the whole film had the same energy.

  • The trouble with Rajkummar Rao’s Trapped is that it is uneven. There are not enough genuinely scary heart-in-mouth moments. His despair stays on the surface when we want to see the soul.

  • Alia Bhatt’s rebellious dulhania meets Varun Dhawan’s boy-man Badrinath, what follows is a flavoursome romance which is way ahead of Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania. Sit back and applaud.
