• Jolie’s film clicks as an inspirational work. Cliched as its tone is, Unbroken manages to make you feel thankful about life in the end.

  • Watch Finding Fanny in its English version rather than the Hindi one. The punchlines would seem sharper. It would also let you understand why the naughty pun about the film’s title is not a cheap trick. Although never openly explained, the English version leaves behind a merry wink over that bit.

  • The ’80s setting of the story gives it an edge as Ron and Rayon work around the system to bring aid to HIV victims. The film is really worth a watch for its lead cast. While McConaughey, ferocious and funny at the same time, comes of age as a leading man, Leto gives his complex role an understated resolve.

  • Yes, it does sound like a smart self- PR trick on Disney’s part to hawk the idea as a fullfledged feature, but you don’t mind it because it makes for a captivating watch. Toplining all attractions about the film is Tom Hanks’ brilliant portrayal of Walt Disney. The equation of tension he shares with the inimitable Emma Thompson, cast as Mary Poppins author PL Travers, is intelligently crafted, too.

  • Smile and get phasaao-ed by this one. It is a different flavour of candyfloss.

  • David O. Russell’s new film is America’s sweetheart flick at the Oscars this year. It rises above all influences though, to shell out a crime drama wholly original – at the same time funny and deep, and surely carved out with the awards season in mind.

  • Dedh Ishqiya makes desi go dangerous all over again. It’s a whopper of a start for Bollywood in 2014. In a line, not to be missed.

  • In the end of it, if you still like Dhoom 3, it is because of Aamir. There is a vital twist about his role in the film that bars any discussion on his performance. All we’ll say is go watch Dhoom 3 for Aamir.

  • The focus here is not so much about narrating an original adventure as it is about how engagingly the film narrates a predictable storyline. The climax as well as its build-up make for all-out fun.

    Bring on Thor 3, but serve it with a few surprise spins.

  • Watching the extravagant affair that Krrish 3 is, you realise the film’s failure to scale exceptional heights is not necessarily about its tech-specs. It lies in the fact that the story reveals no ambition at giving the superhero genre any extra dimension as, say, The Dark Knight flicks or Iron Man have done in Hollywood despite not losing out on the fun factor.
