Part two […]

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sunny Kaushal, Kunal Kapoor, Mouni Roy Director: Reema Kagti Gold movie ratings: Two and a half stars Given Bollywood’s feeble record at making films based on real events, it is no surprise that Gold is more fiction than fact.

Dhadak movie review: There is no ‘dhak dhak’ in this Janhvi Kapoor starrer

Dhadak movie review: There is no ‘dhak dhak’ in this Janhvi Kapoor starrer

Dhadak movie cast: Ishaan Khatter, Janhvi Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Kharaj Mukherjee, Aditya Kumar Dhadak movie director: Shashank Khaitan Dhadak movie rating: One and a half stars Remaking Sairat was always going to be a tough ask for mainstream Bollywood. The edges of that searing 2016 tale of love-in-the-time-of-caste were necessarily going to have to be blunted and softened, […]

By Shubhra Gupta  Veere Di Wedding movie review: The four ‘veeres‘, Kalindi (Kareena Kapoor), Avni (Sonam Kapoor), Sakshi (Swara Bhaskar) and Meera (Shikha Talsania), are a solid bunch despite their riches and their entitled troubles.

Indrajith movie review: This Gautham Karthik film doesn’t even try to keep the viewer engaged

Indrajith movie review: This Gautham Karthik film doesn’t even try to keep the viewer engaged

The only consolation I could derive from watching Indrajith is about a romance angle that wasn’t fleshed out. Indrajith (Gautham Karthik) spies on the girl-next-door when she is about to change. A full-fledged sequence plays out on how she takes revenge and leaves him in his boxers. When the duo meet again, we learn the […]

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 […]

Qarib Qarib Singlle Movie Review

Qarib Qarib Singlle Movie Review

By now, we’re well aware of the formula behind Bollywood romantic movies. When boy meets girl, they fall in love and overcome all their hurdles because in the end – Love conquers all. Oversimplification aside, it’s been a while since we’ve seen a rom-com that manages to subvert the route usually taken by these movies. […]

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

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. There’s something about a couple of strangers having to figure out the bends in the road ahead as well each other, which […]

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. It’s what we do when life, in all its messiness and problems and small joys, is being lived. The sudden death of a character causes not just grief, which is a natural […]

Golmaal Again box office collection day 10: Ajay Devgn film earns Rs 167.32 crore

Rohit Shetty directorial Golmaal Again has grabbed the second spot on this year’s top-grossing films after Baahubali 2.

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 […]

Raja The Great movie review: Another mindless entertainer from Ravi Teja

Raja The Great movie review: Another mindless entertainer from Ravi Teja

Tollywood star Ravi Teja is introduced as ‘Mass Maharaja’ a reputation that he earned due to the choice of his movies. Calling him ‘Maharaja of mindless entertainer’ would be more befitting as he has made a career with such films. You don’t go to watch a Ravi Teja film, which is directed by Anil Ravipudi, […]

Golmaal Again movie review: This Tabu and Ajay Devgn starrer generates some laughs

Golmaal Again movie review: This Tabu and Ajay Devgn starrer generates some laughs

The usual suspects are back, a fourth time. The first frame has two cars, one bright red and the other yellow, and the star cast, decked out in black, swaying to the title song. It tells us that we are going to get more of the same: everyone standing around in one room, tossing smart-alecky […]
