Chhalaang movie review: Simple story with simple message

Chhalaang movie review: Simple story with simple message

Hansal Mehta's new film is far from the class of Aligarh, Shahid or his recent web series Scam 1992 -- directorial efforts that draw automatic recall when you think of the filmmaker.

'Nishabdham' movie review: Anushka Shetty, R Madhavan's film is a messed-up mystery

'Nishabdham' was clearly trying to be a different film. It's a different matter that it is not much of a film anyway, to be anything whatsoever.

'Rasbhari' review: Swara Bhasker's web series is well-intended but half baked

'Rasbhari' review: Swara Bhasker's web series is well-intended but half baked

This is Swara Bhasker's show and if you can overlook a wardrobe that seems randomly borrowed from what Sushmita Sen wore in "Main Hoon Na", she manages to make sufficient impact in an author-backed role.

'Betaal' review: Lack of thrills will make you feel disinterested in series

'Betaal' review: Lack of thrills will make you feel disinterested in series

The problem with "Betaal" is it tries being too many things. It tries to be a morality tale about modern-day urbanisation and greed, as well as a slice of ancient lore serving up every stereotype that has ever defined ‘desi' mumbo jumbo.

‘Mrs Serial Killer’ review: Jacqueline Fernandez, Manoj Bajpayee’s Netflix film is utterly messed-up

Some films are bad right from the first shot and, much against your sincerest hopes, things don't get better. Shirish Kunder made one such utterly unbearable film a few years ago, with 'Joker'. He's done it again with his new feature for Netflix - 'Mrs Serial Killer'.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan movie review: Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar's film is shallow but fun

'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' always looked different despite the cliches. The film grabbed eyeballs from the day it was announced because the lovebirds in the frame weren't a guy and a girl. This was commercial Bollywood's first-ever homosexual rom-com, catering to the story of a couple of loverboys.
