• 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.

  • Namaste England is just a plain bad film, in which the ‘desis’ who live in the UK are poor misguided souls, and the real ‘desis’, especially those from good ‘ol Punjab, will rescue the world.

  • Debutant director Rahi Anil Barve has a distinct voice. Tumbbad is a gorgeous looking, intriguing morality tale which both entrances and repulses: it’s not something I will forget.

  • Helicopter Eela is so saddled with banal story-telling, stretched sub-plots and exaggerated performances, including and especially from the lead actress, that it never really takes off.

  • Tabu is marvelous, Sriram Raghavan finally having created a fitting role for this uber-talented actress, whom we really should be seeing much more of. Ayushmann Khurrana is wonderful, too, sinking into his part.

  • The only trouble with the Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan’s Sui Dhaaga is its total predictability: you know what’s coming miles before the characters do.
