Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana movie review: The Rajkummar Rao starrer will leave you confused

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana movie review: The Rajkummar Rao starrer will leave you confused

For a film that ostensibly sets out to speak against the ills of dowry, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is surprisingly, and dangerously muted. On those who seek to sell their sons and buy daughters-in-law. On those who wave it off as a long-standing ‘samaaj ki pratha’. On those who wring their hands and say, what-can […]

Ittefaq movie review: The Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha starrer is a smart, gripping whodunit

Ittefaq movie review: The Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha starrer is a smart, gripping whodunit

A good murder mystery leads you by the hand but doesn’t advertise its wares, takes care to keep it taut, and delivers a satisfactory payoff. Despite a few niggles, this brand new Ittefaq, which takes broad pointers from the 1969 original of the same name, manages to pull it off. On a rainy Mumbai night, […]

Jia aur Jia movie review: Haphazard execution kills this tale despite an attractive premise

Two young women are unexpected partners in a touching coming of age tale: this must have been the intention of ‘Jia Aur Jia’. The premise is not wildly original but still attractive enough.

Rukh movie review: Manoj Bajpayee remains underused in this puzzle around a chronicle of death

Rukh movie review: Manoj Bajpayee remains underused in this puzzle around a chronicle of death

‘Rukh’ means direction, or aspect. In the film, we see a bunch of people flailing, looking for a mooring, and getting some clarity.

Secret Superstar movie review: Zaira Wasim shines bright

Secret Superstar movie review: Zaira Wasim shines bright

The deep pleasures of a simple story, simply yet eloquently told, is what makes ‘Secret Superstar’ such an engaging, true watch. Till the first half. In the build-up, there is a refreshing absence of gimmicks, and diversions. Post-interval, it dips, and the result is a film which stops short of being superlative. Click here to […]
