Deepwater Horizon movie review: Disastrously awful

'Deepwater Horizon' movie review 

`Lekar Hum Deewana Dil` review: Mediocre acting fails to impress!

`Lekar Hum Deewana Dil` marks the grand entry of Raj Kapoor`s grandson Armaan Jain and popular South Indian actress, Deeksha Seth. Armaan has a whole family name he needs to live up to. Ranbir Kapoor, his cousin has already reached the top with appreciation coming from both fans and critics.

`Ek Villain` review: Tad overdone melodrama

Director Mohit Suri has made sure that with the trailers for `Ek Villain` the curiosity is raised to a palpable level. The thriller genre in Bollywood is so unexplored that a premise of the movie should come as a breather.

`Saivam` review: Food for thought

Vijay`s ‘Saivam’ has a lot going for it right from its title, in which the alphabet I is highlighted by a green mark usually used to differentiate between non-vegetarian and vegetarian products.

Transformers review : - Average yet exciting epic fare

`Transformers: Age of Extinction` is a blockbuster man versus aliens spectacle that deals with loyalty and honour, where "human freedom is at stake and innocent people die all the time".

‘Humshakals’ review: Sajid Khan strikes again!

‘Humshakals’ by Sajid Khan is an attempt to tell the tale of three men and their lookalikes and a situation where their misplacement leads to confusion and purported comedy.

`Indrudu` review: Keeps you awake

In Thiru`s `Indrudu`, the Telugu dubbed version of Tamil film `Naan Sigappu Manithan`, neither do you have a hero to cheer for (because he`s asleep mostly as he suffers from a rare sleep disorder) nor a typical villain.

`Chef` review: Enjoyable, but cloyingly formulaic

Writer-director Jon Favreau`s indie film `Chef` is a light hearted film that revolves around the life of a chef, who is passionate about his culinary art.

Movie review: Fugly - Cinema of social awakening

Let`s first get the picture right. Contrary to what the trailers and promotional images suggest, `Fugly` is not a `Fukrey`-friendly flick about four friends having a ball in life. This film means business.

`Machli Jal Ki Rani Hai` review: Horror of horrors

The horror genre in Bollywood suffers because of its inability to reinvent itself over the years.

`Chal Bhaag` review: Running into deadends

To come across a film with so many talented actors all under one roof is a delightful experience. `Chal Bhaag` is one of those hectically plotted adventure stories where the fast flowing fund of ideas and words indicate the presence of minds that understand the grammar of commercial cinema.

`Holiday` review: True blue action lacking a real punch

The genre of action thrillers has never been a strong point for Bollywood. With `Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty`, the promise of that changing were strong with slick action in the trailers. However, the pace of the movie is such that the audience has little to look forward to.

`Un Samayal Arayil` - cooked with wrong ingredients

Actor-filmmaker Prakash Raj attempts to cook a love story with all the wrong ingredients that makes his final product avoidable. This is not the first time he has tried to go against the grain and failed, but he somehow manages to come up with promising stories that only get squandered in the process of execution.

'Filmistaan' review: Heart warming hug across the border

Hold this film tight. There is an utterly moving sequence towards the end of this lovely parable on cross-border amity where Sunny(Sharib Hashmi), who has strayed into Pakistan, confesses to Aftaab(Innamulhaq) that he is obsessed with Bollywood and wants to be a hero, though he knows he doesn`t have it in him.

Citylights review: A gripping tale of city's underbelly!

The city sucks. And it sucks in the uninitiated, swallows up the innocent wholesale, diminishes the individual`s ego. If you happen to be one of the multitude of faceless migrants, you are in for a really grueling time.

`Maleficent` review: It fails to enchant

God save the classic fairytales and their antagonist! "Maleficent", Disney`s rehash of "Sleeping Beauty" is a case in point.

`Heropanti` review: Over enthusiastic kid trying to be a hero!

The last few years have been rather good for newcomers. Whether it be Varun Dhawan or Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt or Parineeti Chopra; Bollywood has been kind to them.

`X-Men: Days of Future Past` review: Film lacks `X` factor

The ‘X-Men’ franchise usually appeals or makes sense only to Marvel Comic Book fans who are well versed with the characters and their characteristics.

`The Xpose` review: At last, an intelligent Bollywood whodunit

When was the last time we saw an intelligent and entertaining whodunit?

`Children Of War` review: Masterpiece on ravages of war

In one of the many mind-numbing images in this exceptionally vivid work on the ravages of war, the back of a truck is jolted open and out tumble a bunch of women one on top of another at a Pakistani prison camp for Bangladeshi women run by a despicable tyrant, who could be the Nazi mass murderer Ralph Fiennes in Steven Spielberg`s "Schindler`s List".

‘Koyelaanchal’ review: Turbulent drama of the damned

When the gods holler, the skies open up. Such is the milieu of monstrous mayhem and diabolic allegiances that courses through the veins of this earthy robust and homespun film about the coal mafia in Dhanbad.
