• It’s only when Gold moves away from Akshay Kumar’s blundering Bangla and hockey humbug to become a story of grace among go-getters that it comes close to becoming the movie it should have been…

  • Detours and stopovers to cancelled weddings, random goons, Mere Mehboob-style coy romances, run-ins with exes and premature exchange of opinions, personal life and preconceptions make Karwaan wander off in a medley of much ado about nothing.

    As a consequence the more we look at them, the more out of sight they grow.

    After all that running around, the life lessons it ultimately imparts only show the makers’s inability by resorting to the same old soppy idea of closure it so desperately seeks to break away from.

  • Fanney Khan is in the same space as Tumhari Sulu and Secret Superstar where starry-eyed aspiration and gullible hearts of gold go but nowhere as grounded in reality.

  • Out of place wit, flimsy motives, clumsily picturised songs, dispensable characters, phony instances of adultery and a parody of a climax ensure there is no hope for Dhulia’s depthless, disappointing, drama.

  • Tom Cruise is a perfectly good reason to catch any and every Mission Impossible movie.

    The exhilaration his death defying stunts provides, ones he so insists on doing on his own, give Ethan Hunt that unmatched credibility which separates action heroes from action figures.

  • As a remake of Sairat, Dhadak is a travesty.

    As a standalone, Dhadak is standard Bollywood boy-meets-girl drivel.

    As a showcase, Dhadak is a promise that will take some more effort to fully fulfil.

  • While the titular superheroes get busy making a go of it, Ant Man’s feel for wit and goodwill peppers the proceedings.

    Most of it is a consequence of Lang’s delightful dependence on old pal Luis (Michael Peña). Peña continues his scene-stealing comedic streak along with a loony crew. Gags involving truth serums and Russian folklore figure Baba Yaga inject Ant-Man and the Wasp with such infectious merriment; the smile stays on long after you’ve left the theatre.

  • Diljit Dosanjh’s striking self-possession, like the champion he’s portraying, doesn’t let it come in the way of a performance that screams g-o-a-l.

  • Ranbir covers a wide range of Dutt’s changing physicality — the minutest of details are captured in his shoulders, eyes, frame, voice — but it’s the internalisation of Dutt and the intelligence to know what to highlight and where to hold back that lends candour borderlining on conceit such awe-inspiring authenticity.

  • Incredibles 2’s tottering scene-stealer is more than pleased to be the best thing about its flying, fizzy, whimsical, endearing and 3D action-packed two hours.
