• This ploy, of a child’s courage to look death in the eyes and talk to us about it, has some power and function at the beginning. But when it goes on and on, it starts to grate.

    I felt impaled by the film’s relentless emotional badgering, constant telling us, and not showing, how terribly tragic it all is.

  • Given the amount of time devoted to action sequences in Saaho, Prabhas’ moves have no smoothness or finesse. As he lumbers, his thighs thunder. And when he’s not fighting, he looks pasty, his body is droopy and language languid.
    Much like I was at the end of Saaho.

  • But more than that, Nakkash is important — because it’s a good thing when movies refuse to let us slip into complacency. Because it’s a good thing when movies remind us that democracy, secularism cannot and must not be taken for granted. Because it’s a good thing when movies tell us that our job is not done just by standing proudly and humming along when Jan Gan Man is played on the screen.

    All we did was take a pledge. Now we must honour those words with our actions, work.

  • The motive of this tacky, third-rate propaganda piece is all too apparent in the story it wants us to go home with.

  • If, post-Diwali, you are in desperate need for a deep nap, check yourself into a show of Duds of Hindostan.

  • Sui Dhaga, having been rung through a big production house of Bollywood, in this case Yash Raj Productions, suffers the same fate.

  • Satyameva Jayate’s plot is twisted to hide some nice surprises, and its killing scenes, though daffy, are bloody and have enough filmy drama to keep us engaged.

  • Sanjay Dutt’s screen time is too less to feel his presence in the film especially in the first half.

  • Ranbir is outstanding in this dishonest film…

  • It’s like he took the story board session to be a master class in direction.  Forget having the ability to create drama, there isn’t a decent dialogue or scene. And he wastes the only two talents he has — Anil Kapoor and  Saqib Saleem. Worse, he is unable to create even a single Sallu Magic Moment.
