Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
57% Malang (2020) The plotting is airtight, even though there's little at the core. A lot and not much happens over 134 minutes, and the songs, which are skillfully woven into the narrative, articulate the madness...‐

79% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Birds of Prey delivers a satisfying action spectacle led by women, but poignancy is the one element missing in the make-up of its addle-brained heroine. ‐

43% Shikara (2020) Chopra's first film in five years is his most restrained yet.‐

No Score Yet Gul Makai (2020) This promised Malala Yousafzai biopic is a tedious trudge.‐

64% Jawaani Jaaneman (2020) A sub-plot concerning a housing redevelopment project doesn't quite fit as snugly...a blip in an otherwise smooth and smartly directed movie that is a family drama pretending to be a romcom.‐

93% Panga (2020) Kangana Ranaut imbues her character with tenderness and sweetness. Though it's hard to steal the show from Ranaut, Jassie Gill stages his own little personal coup in Panga.‐

13% Street Dancer 3 (2020) [It] leaps to life only in the last 30 minutes, as various crews twist and twirl their way through the inevitable contest. But to get there, you have to wade through sentimental slush and endure trite humour and endless distractions.‐

0% Jai Mummy Di (2020) A tiresome romcom about dull lovers and warring moms...‐

87% Chhapaak (2020) Brave and commendable. This makes the movie hard to watch but also hard to turn away from...‐

70% Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (2020) Solid performances underpin the heroics. Ajay Devgn is perfectly cast as the monomaniacal Tanhaji who leaps first and asks questions later.‐

No Score Yet Shimla Mirchi (2020) Ramesh Sippy's first theatrical release in a quarter of a century should be an event - but it's a bit of a sideshow. ‐
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2020
70% Bombshell (2019) The movie's strength lies in its unsentimental and cliche-free depiction of female solidarity.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2020
83% Good Newwz (2019) In their previous outings, Kareena Kapoor and Akshay Kumar have been mostly wasted as a pairing. But they are in perfect sync in Raj Mehta's Good Newwz.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2019
17% Dabangg 3 (2019) The tedium never lets up, and the heavily advertised dust-up between Chulbul and Bali is drowned in slow-motion and obvious wirework.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2019
50% Mardaani 2 (2019) Shivani exits the picture as quickly as she enters it, and a movie centred around a woman's achievements in a male-dominated world ends as hurriedly and bloodlessly as it began.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2019
42% Pati Patni Aur Woh (2019) The stage-setting takes far too long, and the 128-minute movie gets going only after Chintu's balancing act becomes precarious...‐
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2019
0% Pagalpanti (2019) The plot, written by a minor army of writers, isn't hectic as much as it is inchoate.‐

77% Frozen II (2019) Although some of the rainbow flavour appears forced, Frozen II is at its most persuasive when it sticks with Elsa's strange and unpredictable journey. Here is a sequel that didn't quite need to exist, but has enough evocative moments to justify [it]...‐

82% Bala (2019) Despite the repetitiveness that has become a part of Khurrana's shtick, Bala's pathos breaks through the jokes and barbs.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2019
33% Made In China (2019) Made in China is a bit like one of its hero Raghu's never-ending schemes to get rich - the basic idea is solid and supported by undeniable enthusiasm, but the project is doomed to failure.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2019
53% Saand Ki Aankh (2019) There is a simple reason for why this grannies-with-guns saga fires blanks: the elderly women are played by Taapsee Pannu, aged 32, and Bhumi Pednekar, aged 30.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2019
13% Laal Kaptaan (2019) Gosain's reasons for chasing Rehmat are ultimately too prosaic to justify the 155-minute duration. The film is nasty and brutish but it isn't short enough.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2019
40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) The sequel has bigger things on its mind - racism and the distrust of foreigners, ecological disaster, warmongering, gender stereotyping - but the bit that stays and thrills is the continuing tenderness felt by a witch for her ward.‐

72% The Sky Is Pink (2019) Stripped of these real-life connections, the film struggles to be a convincing portrait of love on the razor's edge. Everything is insistently pink, and the blues are not shaded in skillfully enough.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2019
73% War (2019) The male leads, separated by a couple of generations and united by their ability to land punches and execute pirouettes without breaking a sweat, set the screen on fire.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
100% Bulbul Can Sing (2018) There is no shortage of visual poetry or richly observed local detail, and Das's ability to effortlessly capture the rhythms of pastoral life is never in doubt. ‐

70% Section 375 (2019) Tarun demands the right to be heard - imagine a world in which we do not have the constitutional right to defend ourselves, he says early in Section 375. This would indeed be a terrible world. ‐

50% Dream Girl (2019) His manic energy and believable Everyman persona are in full-throttle mode in Dream Girl, and they steer the movie through its uncomfortable portions and anything-for-a-laugh moments.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2019
45% The Zoya Factor (2019) Salmaan's camera-friendly manner and outsized charm stand out in a movie that mashes together romance, cricket and advertising in the hope that at least one of the themes will stick.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
58% Chhichhore (2019) The movie begins as a rambunctious college campus comedy, quickly moves into the sentimental family drama zone, returns for the fun and games, shifts back into tear-jerking territory, and finally runs out of breath with only some ambitions realised.‐

57% Mission Mangal (2019) In between the gimmicky jugaad philosophising and meaningless sub-plots, Mission Mangal manages to devote some time to space technology...‐

9% Saaho (2019) [T]he 179-minute movie crumbles under the weight of its ambitions.‐

73% The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) Pigs might fly, and sometimes, a sequel might be an improvement on the first movie.‐

36% Batla House (2019) [It] claims to explore the role played by doubt in a police investigation, but it is loaded with biases.‐

0% Khandaani Shafakhana (2019) Khandaani Shafakhana may have a laudable message at its core, but gets bogged down by it's own overly righteous attempt to "educate."‐ The Hindu
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
0% Khandaani Shafakhana (2019) There isn't enough humour of the gentle or wicked variety across the sluggishly-paced film to communicate its larger themes. ‐

0% Arjun Patiala (2019) In trying to send up Bollywood cliches, Arjun Patiala becomes yet another Bollywood cliche itself.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2019
64% Judgementall Hai Kya (2019) Neither whodunit or even whydunit, Judgementall Hai Kya is never quite able to match its ambitions.‐

100% Noblemen (2019) The 110-minute movie makes many important points about the foundations of toxic male behaviour and the homophobia that lurks in the corridors of schools.‐

0% One Day: Justice Delivered (2019) The ruling takes 124 minutes to be delivered, with frequent breaks for item songs. Where are the fast-track courts when we need them?‐

33% Super 30 (2019) The formula is as part as the solution, but many parts of the journey makes this classroom victory worth the while.‐

29% Malaal (2019) Malaal is missing a core. The movie has nothing new to say about the star-crossed romance.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
89% Article 15 (2019) Kumud Mishra turns in a nuanced performance as the son of a sweeper who now wears the police uniform. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub has a small but impactful role as Nishad.‐

25% Kabir Singh (2019) Kabir Singh reimagines the Indian hero archetype in interesting ways, but its inability to even consider the flaws in its leading man's romantic outlook is its undoing. ‐
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
59% The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2019) The 109-minute movie is good at setting up moments with potential, only to squander them with limp humour and indifferent characterisation. ‐

55% Game Over (2019) As these women forge a sisterhood of sorts and navigate their way past the curveballs thrown their way, they suggest that the horror film can function just fine without men in it. At least on this score, Game Over is a modest triumph.‐

29% Bharat (2019) An ode to survival becomes a tribute to its leading man's infallibility.‐

29% India's Most Wanted (2019) The best bits are right at the end, when India's Most Wanted sheds its ripped-from-the-headlines pretensions and settles for the grandstanding that is possible only in fiction.‐
