No Score Yet Sunless Shadows (2019) Sunless Shadows is such a brilliant documentary because it treats the subject matter with the gravitas it needs. To accomplish this, Oskouei uses an intimate observational lens and his excellent relationship with the subjects.‐ Film Inquiry

17% Love Aaj Kal (2020) Whilst this limp remake/reboot/whatever suffers from a terrible script and bad performances that undercut the credibility of Aaryan and Khan as rising stars, it's made worse by a tedious length, zero moments of levity, and no exciting dance numbers.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Made in Bangladesh (2019) Rubaiyat Hossain's third feature film is striking in both theme and technique. Made in Bangladesh is a formal marvel.‐ Film Inquiry

87% Chhapaak (2020) If the conversation around acid regulation was dying down, Gulzar's film beautifully reinvigorates it and not simply due to the Deepika Padukone stimulus package.‐ Film Inquiry

43% Ghost Stories (2020) Ghost Stories is more hit than miss, as the non-horror auteurs mostly succeed in engraving genre tropes with their own names. ‐ Film Inquiry

79% Good Newwz (2019) An easygoing comedy that finds both genuine humour and pathos in a high-concept premise that's entirely possible in real life, Good Newwz is by far the best film released in 2019 to feature any of the four central actors. ‐ Film Inquiry

50% Panipat (2019) What could've been a worthy historical epic with all the visual ingredients and an interesting historical foundation in place is ultimately just a tired expression of Bollywood nationalism, with bad acting to boot.‐ Film Inquiry

0% Drive (2019) Drive 2019 proves Tarun Mansukhani to be unfit for even a provisional licence to direct, presenting a watered-down, technically deficient bore that may as well have been renamed Drivel.‐ Film Inquiry

75% Bala (2019) Bala is the significantly better film, a simple, fun character study of a twenty-something man learning to live with alopecia in a world with a discriminatory idea of beauty.‐ Film Inquiry

71% Most Likely to Succeed (2019) Whilst occasionally letting her film down with some editing choices that put the subjects in a box, Pamela Littky has made a really interesting film on the open-ended definition of success and the ever-shifting approach to pursue it.‐ Film Inquiry

53% Saand Ki Aankh (2019) As good as Saand Ki Aankh may be (which is about half good), practices like this shouldn't be supported, and this is coming from Anurag Kashyap's biggest fan.‐ Film Inquiry

73% War (2019) Forget Hobbs & Shaw - this is the bona fide, brawny, brain-free John Woo-style machismo cinematic face-off of the year. ‐ Film Inquiry

45% The Zoya Factor (2019) The pneuma of Garry Marshall, the irresistible appeal of Mills & Boon, the artificial allure of a Coco Chanel advert - these jewels are embedded in the storytelling of The Zoya Factor, a cute romcom with unexpected depth.‐ Film Inquiry
