3/5 67% Darbar (2020) Rajinikanth does everything demanded of him and more with characteristic panache. He showcases snatches of grief-ridden madness in between. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 83% Good Newwz (2019) Good Newwz is loud, silly and cheesy in places but is also funny by and large. It does make you laugh and hence this adult comedy is certainly worth a one-time watch... ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 17% Dabangg 3 (2019) With loopholes and a little flawed writing, Dabangg 3 does leave you feeling a bit lost in a time when content-driven films are the trick of the trade. But it's a complete entertainer and has a good dose of the Salman Khan love and swag.‐ Filmfare

52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Director JJ Abrams seems to have been in a hurry to wrap up things. Given the finesse of the first two films, this one feels like a hastily put together product in comparison...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 76% Spies in Disguise (2019) Spies In Disguise is the perfect Christmas movie having something for everyone. It offers a unique spoof on spy films, packs in a powerful message and is graced with the star power of Will Smith and Tom Holland to boot.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 50% Panipat (2019) Watch the film for its opulence, it's well-choreographed fight scenes, as well as a colourful lesson in history. It might not be all accurate and yet gives you a sense of place and time...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 42% Pati Patni Aur Woh (2019) Mudassar Aziz has tried to replicate the formula and has been more or less successful. He's taken the basic premise of the 1978 film and has woven a modern take on it, set in Kanpur.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 97% Knives Out (2019) The film does falter a bit towards the second half but that's because Rian Johnson wanted to employ every known trope of the detective novel...You're hooked till the very end, nevertheless, thanks to the nostalgia and humour...‐ Filmfare

3/5 63% The Good Liar (2019) Watch the film for the acting masterclass provided by Mirren and McKellen, who effortlessly slide into their roles and spar with each other like master fencers, making it look all so easy.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 76% Hotel Mumbai (2019) The human interest drama is personified in the form of Armie Hammer's and Nazanin Boniadi's characters. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 0% Pagalpanti (2019) Keep it short is the golden rule of comedy but Anees seems to have forgotten it as the film goes on and on. At close to three hours, it's simply too long.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 77% Frozen II (2019) All-in-all, this feel-good film has some spectacular visuals, an environmental message, a couple of good songs and a family-oriented storyline -- what more can one ask for, really?‐ Filmfare

3/5 51% 21 Bridges (2019) Director Brian Kirk has made an old-fashioned, no-nonsense cop drama. In fact, take away the cell phones and this could be a Dirty Harry film for all you know.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Motichoor Chaknachoor (2019) The pace suffers, especially in the second half and the proceedings look stretched. The writing dips and soars and isn't consistent.‐ Filmfare

3/5 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) Kirsten does try to be as quirky as possible as can be but her character isn't fleshed out.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 82% Bala (2019) Ayushmann has gotten under the skin of his complex character with aplomb. The angst, the insecurity felt by him is almost palpable. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 46% Last Christmas (2019) The saccharine-sweet script is buoyed by credible performances. Emma Thompson, who has contributed to both the story and the screenplay, is the picture of over-caring motherhood.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Terminator: Dark Fate is the perfect fan vehicle for those who grew up idolising the James Cameron directed films. It's a nice enough reboot to reignite our interest in the franchise.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 43% The Addams Family (2019) This bland film needed more wit and macabre. Watch it just to reacquaint yourself with the beloved characters you've grown up watching. Otherwise, avoid. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 61% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) The production and costume design is world-class and so is the CGI recreation of a bygone era. The Chicago fair lights up like a fairytale castle when the light comes on, showing us a glimpse of the awe people present then must have felt. ‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 17% Ujda Chaman (2019) Overall, while the film does raise some important issues, it suffers from faulty execution. It comes across as a missed opportunity at best...‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 40% Housefull 4 (2019) All-in-all, watch the film if you like watching leave-your-brains-behind kind of comedy. It's three hours of silliness served without pretence. Go without expectations and you'll come out happy.‐ Filmfare

3/5 33% Made In China (2019) Though the film does make use of double entendres, it doesn't offer cheap shots. The dialogue is genuinely witty and brings a smile to your face.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 13% Laal Kaptaan (2019) Superb production values, a nice background score, and [it] doesn't disappoint in the acting department as well. Of only the narrative flowed at a faster pace, we would have had a cracker of a film indeed.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 84% Downton Abbey (2019) It's a comedy of manners that brings forth the best of British humour and acting talent. It sums up the challenges and anxieties of that bygone era from British history which saw a change in the British class system...‐ Filmfare

3/5 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Director Joachim Rønning gets some parts right and some parts wonderfully wrong. Maybe what he needed was another fairy tale instead of stretching this one to its limits and making it sag in the process...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Zombieland: Double Tap serves up a platter of good clean fun once more. It has plenty for first comers to enjoy and fans of the franchise to go nuts over.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 24% The Goldfinch (2019) Director John Crowley's choice of a non-linear narrative hasn't worked well in the film's favour. There are so many strands running parallel to each other that the viewer has a hard time playing catch-up. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 33% Prassthanam (2019) All-in-all, better attention to details and towards editing would have added to the film's dramatic impact. In its current form, it feels like an unfinished product at best...‐ Filmfare

3/5 27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) A lone fighter seeking revenge -- there isn't exactly anything new in the plot. What's new is that for the first time in the history of the Rambo franchise, someone has tried to humanise the character‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 50% Dream Girl (2019) A well written and directed film, this was Raaj Shaandilyaa's first directorial venture and he sure has had a promising start. Both he and writer Nirmaan D. Singh should be lauded for their efforts.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 63% It Chapter Two (2019) At close to three hours, it's too long and self-indulgent and doesn't scare you much. It's the performances and emotional core which keeps you hooked despite the flaws...‐ Filmfare
