Mohalla Assi movie review: Sunny Deol-starrer is provocative, pungent and relevant

Mohalla Assi movie review: Sunny Deol-starrer is provocative, pungent and relevant

While the first half of the film picks out characters with all their quirks of radicalism and scatters them everywhere, it is the second half that comes to grips with the crux of the theme.

Bohemian Rhapsody movie review: A sugar-coated memento

The film "Bohemian Rhapsody" gets its name from one of the most iconic songs of the unconventional, British rock band Queen and is aptly used to portray the biopic of its lead vocalist Farrokh Bulsara aka Freddie Mercury.

Jack and Dil moview review, Arbaaz Khan, Amit Sadh film script lacks the heft

Jack and Dil moview review, Arbaaz Khan, Amit Sadh film script lacks the heft

The plot packed with frivolity, meanders without any inciting or sticky moments and the expositions are strictly verbose.

Hunter Killer movie review: Awkwardly predictable, yet exciting in parts

Hunter Killer movie review: Awkwardly predictable, yet exciting in parts

The film may not have style or scale to boast of, but it makes the best of the limited resources at its disposal to provide a series of intense and outlandish set-pieces.

Namaste England movie review: The film has a pure heart

Namaste England movie review: The film has a pure heart

Vipul Shah likes to come clean. His movies are straight forward, simple and aimed at the heart. "Namaste England" is no exception. It bears a strong thematic resemblance to Vipul`s "Namaste London" that came 11 years ago. In both, the desi Punjabi son-of-the-soil hero makes it his business to bring his London-based wife back to her roots and her senses.

Fry Day movie review: Govinda shines again

Fry Day movie review: Govinda shines again

At last, Govinda has a blast. And so, I must confess, do we. "Fry Day" is a surprisingly palatable marital comedy with some really funny throwaway lines, and of course the actors' comic timing which goes a long way in supplanting a certain sparkle to even some of the potentially stiff scenes.

Sui Dhaaga: Made In India movie review: Heart-warming but predictable

Sui Dhaaga: Made In India movie review: Heart-warming but predictable

All without doubt, "Sui Dhaaga" is a sweet, warm-hearted and inspirational film set in the world of working class India. It is a formulaic, feel-good film portraying the travails of a self-made entrepreneur.

Mitron movie review: A predictably formulaic love story

There is nothing exceptional about the predictable love story "Mitron", yet the film charms its way into your heart, giving you a pep talk about love marriage versus arranged marriage and the pitfalls of being afraid along with the benefits of being fearless.

Set in Kashmir, Qais (Avinash Tiwary) and Laila (Tripti Dimri) are destined to meet and so they do. Typically rejecting his overtures initially, Laila finally gives in.

Narrated in a linear manner, from the point-of-view of Tapan Das (Akshay Kumar) -- the hockey team's manager -- the film begins in Berlin 1936 when India won its third Gold medal for British occupied India.
