Mortdecai movie review: The story is predictable

The story is predictable, the jokes flat, and the action put there because, well, you can’t very well have a heist otherwise.

Dolly Ki Doli

Sonam Kapoor is in almost every frame, and should have filled them all. But the treatment of the character shows up her limitations.

baby-209

Baby movie review: This is Akshay’s most credible performance in a long time, and reminds us the actor he can be.

padi

A movie based on a childhood favourite book can usually never measure up.

the-imitation-game-209

The film tells Turing's life in three chapters, which run parallel to each other.

January 16, 20157:34 pm
american-sniper-209

Without getting into the politics of this, Eastwood tells a straight-from-the-hip story of this sniper over four tours of war-torn Iraq.

the-theoryofeverything209

It gives us a close look at the withering away of Hawking's body under motor neuron disease or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Crazy Cukkad

'Crazy Cukkad Family' promises a lot of fun cock-a-doodle-do, but delivers much too much cockamamie, instead.

Alone Movie review, Alone Bipasha, Alone review, Alone film review, Alone movie, Karan Singh Grover

Bipasha Basu starrer quickly becomes a tussle between the scenes that want you to be scared and the sequences where you are supposed to slurp at all the eye candy.

aambala-209

'Aambala', which directly translates to masculine, is like film made by 'Singam' fame Hari Gopalakrishnan, who is known for making films with flying objects.

eyes-thumb

Eerily, Margaret also sees these eyes at times, randomly, on people she encounters in the midst of a painting spree.

taken-3-209

In Taken 3, Bryan Mills's (Neeson) ex-wife Lenore is found murdered with him holding the murder weapon.

tevar-poster-209

Tevar review: It makes you a couple of promises : that it will be violent, vicious and crude; and that it will do nothing new.

January 2, 20156:32 pm
unbroken-209

There are almost no heroes in this chapter of the war treated mostly as a postscript.

January 2, 20156:31 pm
the-woman-in-black-209

The only one who lends her fears a sympathetic ear is Harry (Irvine), a dashing pilot stationed off the island in the village.

take-it-easy-209

Joy Sengupta is one of those dads who is never satisfied. His son comes second in class and in a race, and his world comes crashing down.

December 26, 20142:55 pm
night-at-the-museum-209

So dinosaurs have company in mythical demons, and Pompeii's volcano meets Camelot's swashbuckling Lancelot.

rahul-bhat-ugly-209

'Ugly' film review: It takes that darkness to an extreme, even more so that his first, unreleased 'Paanch': a little girl goes missing, and what happens subsequently (and consequently) does not just flow from the fear and anguish.

December 22, 201410:22 am
pk-review-209

PK review: Aamir Khan plays PK not only to his strengths, but adds something new: we’ve seen his earnestness several times before, but not artlessness.

babadook-209

Amelia lost her husband while on way to hospital to deliver Samuel. She loves him but, seven years later, still hasn't got around to giving him a birthday party.

December 12, 20145:06 pm
hobbit-209

And so it ends. After five films, 13 years and at least 17 Academy awards, the tale of Middle Earth on the big screen has drawn to a close.

December 12, 20147:10 pm
lingaa-209

Lingaa movie review: Like all his films, it is basically three hours of Rajini Saar doing his thing. And it is three hours of full-on 'masti' and 'mazaa'.

December 12, 20143:07 pm
badlapur-biys-209

A father gives up his life, a son is left moping, and a mother constantly crying. The ‘kabaddi boys’ are more ‘men’, and the treatment makes it banal and dull.

December 12, 201410:19 am
mainaurmrriight214

Main Aur Mr Riight Review: Varun Sobti gets the hungry-actor look right, but the smiley Shenaz Treasurywala needed to be deeper.

December 5, 20146:22 pm
this-is-where209

A RECENTLY departed father, an unstoppable mother, four middlingly successful children, their neighbourhood past flings and one week at the family home.

December 5, 20145:45 pm
exodus209

Ridley Scott's Exodus is as epic in scale as the director likes them, with horses, swords and men in togas.

December 5, 20142:36 pm
sulemani-keeda-209

'Sulemani Keeda' gives us a couple of struggling script-writers that makes us smile. But the film takes the 'slacker' part of its title (slacker comedy) a bit too seriously.

December 7, 201411:02 am
bhopalprayerforrain214

‘Bhopal : A Prayer For Rain’ plays out like a much-delayed requiem for the thousands that were killed and maimed that night.

action-jacksonreview3-214

Action Jackson movie review: Ajay Devgn doesn’t need to stoop this low: so what if he can't dance, he can keep a straight face while delivering a joke.

November 28, 20146:49 pm
bosses-209

There are a lot of risque jokes, plenty of abusive language and a plot that seems suspiciously like it was made up as the film went along.

November 28, 20146:45 pm
hunger-games-209

We know how it's all going to end, and perhaps even how it's all going to start. Still it's one of those films which -- even if by commercial design, to milk the maximum out of a successful franchise -- takes a pause to give you an idea of what lies in the interrgenum.

November 28, 20146:27 pm
zed-plus-209

Zed Plus turns out to be a mildly engaging but overall patchy attempt at political satire from the man who gave us the memorable Doordarshan serial Chanakya.

November 30, 20146:59 pm
ungli-first-look-poster209

Ungli is empty, and left me collecting my jaw from the floor, where it lay through the film.

November 21, 20148:50 pm
dumber-209

Even if the story was a little better, there is something quite pathetic about wrinkled, greying men on the wrong side of 40 behaving like their selves from the right side of 20.

November 21, 20148:45 pm
equalizer-209

This is far from Fuqua's own Training Day and Washington's other impressive body of work, but The Equalizer is a good reminder of what we may be missing.

November 21, 20142:06 pm
he-thefilm209

'Happy Ending' piles up many more as it goes along, making the film a series of been-here, seen-this moments, and a wasted opportunity.
