    Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl Quick Movie Review

    When the Indian Air Force (IAF) has written to film certification body Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), thereby objecting to its alleged negative portrayal in the biographical film, one knows that Dharma Productions have taken creative liberties or artistic freedom, to show things as they are not exactly in real life. Sounds common? Despite […] More

    Dil Bechara Movie Review

    This adaptation of John Green’s ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ (2014) goes through a terminally-ill couple’s life. Director Mukesh Chhabra avoids the weeping route and makes a significant switch to a more joyful ride. ‘Safar’ (1970), ‘Anand’ (1971), ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ (2003) and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ (2016) dealt with this subject emotionally, although […] More

    Dil Bechara Music Review

    A.R. Rahman goes behind the mike for the title track “Dil Bechara” which carries a simple tune. Written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, who reunites with the maestro, after ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ (2014), the orchestral arrangements overpower the tune but Rahman’s voice remains the highlight. The short duration (2m43s) leaves listeners wanting for more but its […] More

    Baaghi 3 Quick Movie Review

    An attempt to make a successful franchise is hereby ruined by an illogical script, aplenty with loopholes. Why on earth would a talented Tiger Shroff decide to sign up for this? Touted as the next big action superstar, Tiger Shroff does not disappoint in his role – flexing his muscles and showing off his agility […] More

    Thappad Quick Movie Review

    The revamped Anubhav Sinha now known for making hard-hitting cinema à la Hansal Mehta stretches a simple story but in the process, fails to fork out a really honest movie. Themes such as divorce, women empowerment, male entitlement, bullying and societal expectations are handled in an amateurish manner, leaving viewers with more questions than respectable […] More

    Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship Quick Movie Review

    Debutant director Bhanu Pratap Singh does not know the basics of scaring the audience as he goes the old path by borrowing all the tricks from hit horror movies. The novelty factor is clearly missing, though not deliberately. Backed by Karan Johar, this flick fails to engage in the second half, despite a strong first […] More

    Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Quick Movie Review

    Written and directed by Hitesh Kewalya, homosexuality is depicted here to be accepted in the Indian society.

    Love Aaj Kal Quick Movie Review

    Director Imtiaz Ali struggles to get storytelling part right as the scenario is too complex. The movie lacks a consistent approach and the melodrama takes over. Kartik Aaryan receives the best opportunity to showcase his talent and he nails it. Sara Ali Khan’s chemistry with Kartik is highly commendable and she also tries her best […] More

    Shikara Quick Movie Review

    Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra attempts to describe the plight of Kashmiri Pandits but instead lays more emphasis on a love story between the main lead, rather than the real misery which the mass went through in 1990. It is basically a poignant love story, mostly in the first half, set in Kashmir and the proceedings […] More

    Malang Quick Movie Review

    Stories which happen overnight have to be really appealing to the audience as the twists and turns occur so quickly. Director Mohit Suri presents Aditya Roy Kapur’s chiseled body to the paying audience. The latter succeeds in the action scenes where he clearly shows his forte but struggles in the most important department – acting. […] More

    Happy Hardy and Heer Quick Movie Review

    Done for the umpteenth time, the story revolves around Sonia Mann who falls in love with another Himesh Reshammiya (seen for the first time in a double role). The singer-music composer’s acting is tolerable but he fails to master all the acting skills to engage the audience. Furthermore, he appears in every scene à la Ajay […] More

    Jawaani Jaaneman Quick Movie Review

    Saif Ali Khan steps into his comfort zone and delivers yet another ‘Happy Ending’ (2014) performance in this playboy-cum-father new age story, shot in some locations in London. Director Nitin Kakkar explores the father-daughter relationship in an unconventional way, which society does not want to swallow, because of taboos and hyprocrisy. He aptly draws the […] More
