4/5 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) While Hindi viewers will be able to follow the vastness of the Marvel universe and enjoy the movie for the big ticket spectacle that it is, we wish the voice cast was kept constant in all the Avenger Hindi dubs.‐ The Times of India

4/5 88% Jackie (2016) A disturbingly intimate portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy, 'Jackie' is a film that unmasks her in such a tender yet objective manner; you feel like an intruder who is tailing the first lady of America and a widow in her most trying time. ‐ The Times of India

4/5 90% An Insignificant Man (2016) The mark of a good documentary is that you forget that the events unfolding on the screen are not fiction. An Insignificant Man achieves that and even surpasses it. ‐ The Times of India

4/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Ari Aster's directorial debut 'Hereditary' is truly an original that moves slowly yet completely and totally terrifies you when you least expect it to.‐ The Times of India

4/5 82% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Moore shines the camera on the changing political system in America, where neither Democrats nor Republicans are absolved.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 76% Trolls (2016) Trolls is a fail-safe film that young parents can take their kids to, and hopefully enjoy a few chuckles themselves.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 93% Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) (2015) This colourful joyride is one that we insist you make and see the world through the eyes of a little boy.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 72% Sing (2016) Most animated movies try to deliver a message and end up sounding preachy. Sing too, has one -- once you hit rock bottom, there's nowhere else to go but up. The sheer heart with which its characters live and convey the sentiment, is incredible.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 35% A Dog's Purpose (2017) If you're a dog-lover, the makers will have you eating out of their hands in no time. If you're a cat-person, there is still enough humour and heart in it to enjoy it with family.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 47% Downsizing (2017) While it dithers in what it wants to eventually say, it is certainly a fun watch.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 65% The Foreigner (2017) Go along with Jackie with this ride. He may not come out as a super hero always, in every scene, but its heartening to watch him try. ‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 40% Mantra (2017) A crowd funded effort, Mantra is a brave film that delves into the complex world of urban relationships and poses the right questions.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 28% Suburbicon (2017) A film with a wonderfully complex first half deserves a second one that matches. The banal simplicity is what is off-putting. Still, Suburbicon is worth a watch for the spectacular performances.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 13% Fukrey Returns (2017) Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani with director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba have created a successful franchise, and there is ample scope to make a Fukrey 3, but this time, we hope it doesn't take them four years to do so.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 100% Rukh (2017) It's a rare, mature thriller that delivers the goods and keeps you engrossed. Don't let this small film slip under the radar, because this will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 60% Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz (2018) Kuch Bheege Alfaaz successfully manages to show how love in the time of social media can stay relevant. The Kolkata of trams and bridges, fish markets and open parks is shown in a stunning manner by Onir.‐ The Times of India

3/5 40% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) You may just zone out in this very ordinary story that has very little to offer adults.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
3/5 37% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) It's a delight to see Alice escape by the skin of her teeth more than half a dozen times, with each of those close-shaves being truly thrilling, and the 3D makes them all the more exciting. ‐ The Times of India

3/5 16% Geostorm (2017) The biggest irony is that the big Geostorm that everyone is so afraid of doesn't really happen. However, the 4D vibrations and halogen-flickers kind of make-up for it.‐ The Times of India

3/5 24% Birth of the Dragon (2017) Philip Ng as Bruce Lee is well cast. The early swagger and the transformation later are portrayed quite well.‐ The Times of India

3/5 23% Mile 22 (2018) While there are plans for a sequel to the film, we hope they are well-written considering the film's plot shows a lot of promise.‐ The Times of India

3/5 14% Collateral Beauty (2016) The play on the term 'collateral damage' fails to hit home as the movie takes a long-winded route to get there.‐ The Times of India

3/5 17% Incarnate (2016) [The] performances make the human characters far more interesting than the demonic ones.‐ The Times of India

3/5 26% Mortal Engines (2018) Instead of trying to find balance, the filmmaker could have stuck with the spirit of the book, which already has a legion of fans...while you're dazzled by the stunning visual effects, you don't really connect with the characters.‐ The Times of India

3/5 47% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) For the Halloween season, this is a legitimately fun movie outing for kids, but not that much for adults.‐ The Times of India

3/5 17% Runningshaadi.com (2017) While there may not be much of a Shaadi, there's definitely a lot of fun running around that you may want to check out.‐ The Times of India

3/5 20% Hare Krishna! The Mantra, The Movement And The Swami Who Started It All (2017) Ihere is no real drama and it comes out a bit flat. If you're a follower though, this one is for you.‐ The Times of India

3/5 23% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) From a Clint Eastwood directorial, one expects better. Alas, this one is relegated to being merely an experiment in casting.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Dark Wind (Kadvi Hawa) (2017) The chemistry between Ranveer and Sanjay is darkly entertaining. You may even feel guilty while enjoying a moment of black humour in scenes between the two actors.‐ The Times of India

3/5 73% Mercury (2018) As thrillers go, this is one of the better ones that we have seen this year. ‐ The Times of India

3/5 63% Omertà (2018) The director has not invested much into how Omar plans his complex actions or what drove him to such abhorrence. So while Mehta gets the mood right, and Rajkummar works wonders with his limited material, Omerta fails to stir you emotionally.‐ The Times of India

3/5 50% Hope Aur Hum (2018) A tighter script could have helped, but for now the little gags in the film work just fine.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
3/5 60% Laila Majnu (2018) Sajid's effort is achingly honest and it is visible throughout the film.‐ The Times of India

3/5 67% K.G.F. (2018) For fans of Yash, there are ample moments to cheer and hoot for, and 'KGF: Chapter 1' will make for an entertaining movie outing.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 61% Unfriended (2015) You end up following illogical plot points, and want to see just how the story ends. The pay-off is goofy, sure. But it's still a good film to catch up on a late night with friends over.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 15% Robin Hood (2018) While the filmmakers have kept enough room for a sequel, producer Leonardo DiCaprio will have to be one brave guy to make a second film. He'd much rather get better writers and consider another reboot. ‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 18% CHIPS (2017) A formulaic film, there are no real surprises here and it fails to cash in its chips as far as holding your interest is concerned.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
2.5/5 33% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw doesn't quite get there as far as slasher films go. It's a weak imitation of the previous films but it's not the weakest in the franchise.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 18% All Eyez on Me (2017) Since it's Tupac, the music being brilliant is a no-brainer. However, unlike biopics on rappers in the past like Straight Outta Compton or 8 Mile, viewers who aren't aware of the legacy of Tupac, won't quite be able to connect with the film. ‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Mahayoddha Rama (2016) Considering it was made eight years ago, the animation is good. However, in 2016, it leaves you wanting for more.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet Mirror Game (2016) Mental illness is used to make the film more 'exciting', which is insensitive and doesn't work.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet The Wishing Tree (2017) The film relies a lot on animation in all scenes connected to the Wishing Tree, the quality of which leaves a lot to be desired and lacks consistency.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet Fuddu (2016) Heavier on visuals than emotions, it delivers no message nor answers any questions. Too thin to be a slice of life, this one.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2017
2.5/5 13% My Birthday Song (2018) The production values are top notch and so is the music. While the narrative may get a bit repetitive, like how birthday songs can get, maybe that's what the director intended.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Subedar Joginder Singh (2018) The fact that the filmmaker has introduced innocent humour in the film in both the army and civilian life is commendable, though the effort does seems a bit naive and stretched at times...But as far as Indian war films go, the effects are superior.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
2.5/5 13% Nanu Ki Jaanu (2018) Neither the performances nor an ever changing storyline, where newer characters are introduced, help pick it up. An anticlimactic, emotional ending further seals the fate of this film.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet Mitron (2018) With an extremely guessable plot and a not enough laughs to match, Mitron is a film you would recommend to those friends you want to get back at!‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
2.5/5 0% Air Strike (2018) With a shoddy edit and a poor storyline, the only reason to watch the film is for its elaborate fight action sequences. Besides that, there's nothing more to look forward to in this uninspiring World War II drama.‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2018
2.5/5 11% American Renegades (2018) While action films are known to have incredible over the top plots, the plot here is a bit too far-fetched to wrap one's heads around it.‐ The Times of India
