The Choice movie review: Considering The Choice begins with a grim visit to the hospital and that very portentous line — “The biggest secret of life is making decisions” — you can guess what that actually is.
The Finest Hours movie review: Chris Pine as the anchor of that boat and hence this film is an effective choice, a good-looking, clean all-American hero with the shiny eyes one can't ignore.
Sanam Teri Kasam review: Mawra Hocane rises above it all, and shows us how effervescence can light up the screen. Someone give her another movie, quick.
Ghayal Once Again review: Sunny Deol is still a lethal weapon and can blow his opponent all the way across the room. Sunny the director should just get out his way.
The worst part about The Boy is just when the premise starts to work, thanks in large part to praiseworthy acting by all its main protagonists particularly the boy's aged parents, director Bell loses control.
The first part of Room ends with Jack's flight -- almost too quickly. The rest, dealing with their life in the world outside, is more predictable, more practical.
Saala Khadoos review: Madhavan is revved up much more than is needed. Ritika Singh is full tilt at all times, screwing up her face, her body, anger coursing through her veins.
Mastizaade review: Sunny Leone's comfort with her body beautiful is presumably the sole reason for this film to exist. She is gorgeous, this woman.
The 5th Wave movie review: The 5th Wave doesn't get to attack Earth just once but, as the name suggests, five times. None of them feels close enough.
Joy movie review: David O Russell's film works scene from scene, and shines when some of its actors including Jennifer Lawrence (nominated for an Oscar) come on screen.
Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 review: All those limp jokes don’t add up to a comedy, either. False pretences. Can I please call it a falsie? I know, groan again. Given the previous two flicks, did we really think this would be a bag of laughs? More fool hain hum.
Airlift movie review: Overall, Akshay Kumar's ‘Airlift’ is a good film, solidly plotted, well executed and well-acted. Just lose the songs, and the occasional underlined background music the next time, okay?
Jugni movie review: Shefali Bhushan’s debut feature has a documentary feel to it, which is natural, given her experience with being a collator and collector of folk sounds around the country.
The Hateful Eight movie review: The Quentin Tarantino's film, unfurled as "chapters", feels like an actual short story for a cold winter day.
Rajini Murugan review: Even with its predictable storyline, Sivakarthikeyan makes the film work, and only he can save a film like this.
Chalk N’ Duster review: It is a subject that deserves a great deal of attention, but not in the way this Juhi Chawla, Shabana Azmi film does it.
The Danish Girl movie review: Director Tom Hooper gets everything right. The problem is that his Einar/Lili is etched in the same perfect strokes. You are impressed, you are not moved.
Our Brand is Crisis review: While the film is heart-warmingly centered on Bullock, she is at her best neurotic, desperate, redeemable self.
The trouble with ‘Chauranga’, despite its crucial subject, is that treads familiar ground without taking the tale too far.
Wazir movie review: Watching Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan joust and manoeuver around each other is this film’s high point.
Point Break review: It’s not just presidents who are bleached of colour. Even thieves must center their wickedness on something as concrete as concern for the earth.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens review: ‘The Force Awakens’ is a bona-fide film, referencing the original pop-culture behemoth, and renewing it, with some energy and vim.
Dilwale review: In this rigmarole, Shah Rukh khan is the only thing worth watching when he switches on the wattage ( Kajol can shine, too, when she chooses to)
Bajirao Mastani review: Deepika Padukone is lovely, and creates sizzle with Ranveer Singh, but hasn’t melded with the part. It is hard to imagine anyone else as Bajirao after Ranveer Singh finishes chewing up the part.
The Peanut Movie review: The film remains true to Charles Schulz's drawings and pen strokes -- down to the two-dimensional sketches even in 3D -- and his characters.
The Good Dinosaur review: The movie falls the shortest on one of its strongest suits, the story.
Legend review: The movie spends an inexplicable amount of time on the relationship, inter-cut by the Krays' expanding business. The time spent on Frances drags Legend down.
Hate Story 3 review: There are bed bits with generous displays of slithering lingerie on chest-and-thigh, and surprisingly for a time when 'boldness' is being dealt with by archaic moral standards, lots of open mouth-and-tongue action.
Angry Indian Goddesses movie review: The women turn into the 'angry Indians' of the title, and the film plummets.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 review - The film depicts it well, both the bombed overground and the bleak underworld.
Tamasha review: Deepika Padukone is luminous, and she is much more sure-footed in her part. Even though Ranbir Kapoor gets more space, Tara is drawn with welcome depth.
Secret In Their Eyes movie review: A tighter film would see Billy Ray deploy much cleverer and subtler methods than he does in his pursuit of Marzin/Beckwith. However, that is about the only wrong note Secret in their Eyes strikes.
Spectre movie review: Sam Mendes tries by making a complete break and not giving Daniel Craig the emotional baggage he has been hauling in the last two Bonds.
X : Past Is Present movie review: Except for one segment, right at the end, which has Swara Bhaskar and the young Jha, and a sense of time and place, the rest have practically no weight, nor heft.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo review: This Salman Khan film draws heavily from Sooraj Barjatya’s previous work, with one glaring cosmetic difference : he sets it not in homes that people like you and me live in, or relate to, but in a grand palace.
There are two running gags in Hotel Transylvania 2, and both are not directed at the children. One deals with overprotective parents, the other with over political correctness.
