Once Upon a Time in Hollywood movie review: A slow-burn nostalgia

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood movie review: A slow-burn nostalgia

The film is masterfully shot, written and directed but its narrative is uneven, and unwieldy in its structure with plenty of flat patches.

'Mission Mangal' movie review: Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan star in an ordinary film about an extraordinary feat

'Mission Mangal' movie review: Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan star in an ordinary film about an extraordinary feat

For Akshay Kumar, this is a very different nationalist hero. 'Mission Mangal' is a feel-good toast girl power, and the fact is an advantage for its female cast. Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen get well-crafted roles that fit seamlessly to give the film its multi-starrer entirety.

'Barot House' review: Chilling if you stop disbelieving

Let alone reach the dark peaks of Robert Altman's classic, 'Barot House' struggles with budgetary constraints and limitations of imagination. Both deficiencies clearly show up in the end product.

Khandaani Shafakhana movie review: Message in a Mess

Khandaani Shafakhana movie review: Message in a Mess

"Khandaani Shafakhana" betrays most flaws that efforts of debutant directors in Bollywood normally do. Hopefully, Shilpi Dasgupta will give us a better second film.

'Arjun Patiala' movie review: Kriti Sanon and Diljit Dosanjh's film is a huge letdown

'Arjun Patiala' movie review: Kriti Sanon and Diljit Dosanjh's film is a huge letdown

Overall, this film had the potential to be a good comic caper. Trite humour, and a hackneyed and lazily-crafted plot, spells doom for 'Arjun Patiala'.

The film could have been more exciting, although it does manages to entertain and engage as long as as long the action scenes unfold.

Family Of Thakurganj movie review: Familiar hang-ups

Family Of Thakurganj movie review: Familiar hang-ups

By turns, the film seems like a grim gangland saga that inadvertently becomes funny, and an attempted spoof of a gangland saga that is far from funny.

Yesterday movie review: A dreamy and enjoyable fantasy fiction

Yesterday movie review: A dreamy and enjoyable fantasy fiction

Despite the brilliant performances, the film lacks seriousness and heft. The narrative, high on concept, is light-hearted and frothy. Richard Curtis` writing does not do justice either to the Beatles Music or to Jack`s journey. Despite its many flaws, the film is funny, enjoyable and hardly disappointing.

Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna is Darr remixed

The film will immediately remind audiences of Yash Chopra`s "Darr" where Shah Rukh Khan gave a star-making turn as Juhi Chawla`s obsessive lover. And to remind us of "Darr" Ms Chawla herself shows up at one point in the story.

Malaal movie review: Strong performances elevate this love story

Based on an original tale by K. Selvaraghavan, the story is sweet with all the trappings of a sweet romance. The screenplay by the director and Sanjay Leela Bhansali ensures that the songs mesh seamlessly into the narrative.
