• ‘The Sky Is Pink’ Review: An Unusual Grief Drama Obsessed With the Possibility of Life After Death

  • Much like Infinity War, Endgame won’t make much sense to anyone who hasn’t seen most or all of the 21 Marvel movies that came before it. It is more or less the second part of Infinity War (despite not being called Infinity War — Part 2), but those of us who have connected with these characters over the last decade and change were not looking for a standalone adventure. We wanted to see Marvel Studios successfully pull off a magic trick that has never been performed on the silver screen. Against overwhelming odds, the studio managed to do it.

  • Despite the preponderance of sets and costumes spectacular enough to make Baz Luhrmann weep with envy, and a handful of thrillingly choreographed production numbers that sporadically quicken the movie’s pulse and boost its eye-candy quotient, the attractive yet underwhelming lead players are too hampered by the lethargic narrative to sufficiently distract viewers from their awareness of time passing and interest diminishing.

  • The subtleties of How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World sneak up on you and hold you captive. Just go with the film’s irresistible flow. There’s magic in it.

  • That’s an easy quality to underrate, as is the modest but careful craftsmanship and muted but honest performance style that makes “Photograph” — a film itself about the rewards of patiently building on first impressions — a winsome diversion. At the same time, it’s hard not to wish for an occasional hot surge of uncivil emotion in this mellow May-December romance between a hard-up street photographer and an introverted student from opposing social realms.

  • On the flip side, the plot gets a tad repetitive in the second half and seems dragging. Thankfully, Sunil Grover comes to the rescue and pulls up the strings.

  • Manoj Bajpayee adds gravitas to his role and makes an intriguing opponent for John’s character in the film. Debutante Aisha Sharma has a good screen presence, but ends up with a poorly-sketched role. Even Amruta Khanvilkar doesn’t get much scope to perform.

  • Wonder, as effective as it is, is a movie in which everything has a way of working out with tidy benevolence.
