• In its own subtle way, Veere Di Wedding also tries to subvert the male dominant stereotype but these moments are so few and far between that you almost miss the point. It may be a buddy comedy but it is not among the best in the genre, not even top five.

  • With crisp editing and a runtime of 97 minutes, the film never lets you lose attention and the gripping narrative style ensures you are on the edge throughout. Rao proves his mettle once again as he smoothly gets into his cold character who can switch accents and personalities with equal ease – and does it all for the sole purpose of serving the ‘holy war’.

  • Fun filled and realistic story-telling made interesting with engaging and hilarious performances of Irrfan Khan and Divya Dutta.

  • With a tighter editing, slightly less focus on the wannabe love story and a lesser dose of melodrama, Raid could have been a gripping thriller.

  • Dil Junglee is an age-old story, told with a hundred stereotypes, none of which helps it. It is only Taapsee’s charming presence and Saqib’s earthiness that keep us entertained. Taapsee looks authentic in both the avatars that she dons in the film. Saqib, too, provides ample support with his realistic portrayal of a middle-class Delhi boy. In fact, almost all the actors — Saqib’s mom, his friend, Taapsee’s friend and his fiancée — make the film lively.

  • The one thing that worked for Pyaar Ka Punchnama films was the relatability, even if it was restricted to guys-only discussions. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety doesn’t have that, nor is it funny.

  • Zain plays RJ Alfaaz and Shray essays the role of Archana’s friend in the film who nurtures feelings for her. Interestingly, Onir has also cast all of his characters with perfection. Be it Archana’s mom or RJ Alfaaz’s girlfriend, each actor has a remarkable presence in the movie.

    It is just the stretched narrative that fails them all.

  • Akshay Kumar’s superhero swoops in and de-stigmatises menstrual hygiene without making the film feel stodgy or heavy handed.

  • Debutante director Samir Soni starts off with an amazing idea which is failed by its execution.

  • Saif Ali Khan outshines a sloppy script…The Saif ALi Khan-starrer is a thriller at best and an attempted comedy at worst.
