• The film is an out-an-out propaganda film, created for the specific purpose of making the former prime minister look like a weak, spineless man, a puppet whose strings were controlled by The Family.

  • The movie on the whole keeps you watching despite some clunky passages. It’s always good to have movies in which the soldiers look real, even if the action is buoyed by such dialogues as ‘unhe Kashmir chaihye, humein unka sar’.

  • Emily Blunt is good, as are the children, and the rest of the performers do their job well enough. A couple of the sequences, when Blunt lets herself go, as well as the climactic set-piece, is quite lovely.

  • The only reason to watch Simmba is Ranveer Singh. The actor is fully alive to the moment, knowing that he is working in a template, aware that he has to keep breaking out.

  • Zero, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, fails spectacularly at giving us anything we can believe in, and we go from start to finish, with disbelief growing with each passing frame.

  • In trying to please everyone, Kedarnath loses edge, and leads to a tepid cop-out. It’s a weepie minus the tears.

  • On paper, this is not a bad bunch to be spending a couple of hours with. On screen, the whole thing is beyond terrible.

  • Not only do you end up picking up on past films, scenes and references, you are left struggling with staleness and boredom.

  • An uninteresting, uninvolving film…The treatment of the film is moth-balled (a line in English is translated immediately after in Hindi) and hackneyed. Bad songs punctuate the proceedings. Background music is used to buoy almost every scene.

  • Badhaai Ho doesn’t quite know what it wants us to do more, laugh or cry. And parts of the film sink into sitcom flatness, especially when Sikri overdoes her grumpy ‘saas’ act, though some of her lines are laugh-out-loud.
