Tanhaji—The Unsung Warrior Movie Review: Too much cinematic liberty! @ 11 Jan 2020 6:54 pm - The sets are lavish, the screenplay laudable and the background score lifts the goings-on, on screen. The script, however, is lacking in depth and finesse.
Chhapaak Movie Review: Not entirely engrossing! @ 10 Jan 2020 7:04 pm - Chhappak is not entirely gripping, yet is socially relevant. Full marks for Deepika for stepping out of her comfort zone and embracing a challenging role.
Marjaavaan Movie Review: Milap Zaveri kills his own creation! @ 15 Nov 2019 1:48 pm - Milap Zaveri, who also credits himself with the writing, has himself to blame for this shoddy piece of craft that would have best been appreciated in the 90s!
War Movie Review: How the Wild West was lost! @ 2 Oct 2019 6:55 pm - Technically, the film is sound with the action scenes being first-rate. However, Siddharth Anand loses his grip on War by being generous with 36 extra minutes. Pankaj Kapur did the same mistake with Mausam with a run-time of 168 minutes!
Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas Movie Review: A below-par launch vehicle! @ 21 Sep 2019 10:44 am - he first half of the movie is a pure promotional documentary for Manali to boost tourism. The second half gets into a semblance of a story-telling module.
Super 30 Movie Review: Super Show by Hrithik Roshan! @ 12 Jul 2019 4:02 pm - After 30 minutes into the film, director Vikas Bahl goes astray, focussing too much on drama rather than making the teaching a realistic affair. The slant is more on appealing to the emotions than dishing out a crisp plot.
Avengers Endgame Movie Review: Did it really have to end? @ 29 Apr 2019 7:14 pm - For a Marvel fan who is familiar with the superheroes and has binged on the films, this is a delight and a must-watch. For a person who hasn’t watched any Marvel film, this will be a thriller. They too will find this a great watch and a movie to remember.
Junglee Movie Review: Haathi Mayhem Saathi! @ 29 Mar 2019 2:48 pm - Vidyut Jamwal gets another opportunity to position himself as India’s one-man action hero with stylised fights, focussing on his expertise, and he does not disappoint.
Gully Boy Movie Review: Happy Gully Boy to you! @ 14 Feb 2019 6:36 pm - Gully Boy is a celebration of life in Asia’s largest Slum. It does not demean the society but brings it to light in a beautiful manner without the frills and fancy of a typical Bollywood film. No naach gaana, no dishoom dishoom, just plain story-telling with its heart in the right place.
Why Cheat India Movie Review: Why Emraan, why? @ 18 Jan 2019 12:51 pm - The only actor to catch the eye is Shreya Dhanwanthary who excels in the ‘Plain Jane’ look as well as the girl in a corporate set-up. Her transition, screen presence and character graph is the only good thing in the flick.
