Pirates of Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge movie review: The dead are not really dead in Pirates of the Caribbean, those living are a miracle in themselves, and few age, especially Johnny Depp.
The Lost City of Z movie review: James Gray appears to have a good thing going, with Charlie Hunnam, a blond, strikingly and traditionally good-looking actor who grows on you, hitting all the right notes with Fawcett.
Sachin A Billion Dreams movie review: The Sachin Tendulkar biopic makes you teary and makes you smile. But does it tell you anything about Sachin that you didn't already know?
Half Girlfriend movie review: What exactly is Half Girlfriend? Arjun Kapoor's Bihari boy Madhav Jha and Shraddha Kapoor's Delhi girl Riya Somani are as clueless as us.
Hindi Medium movie review: Irrfan Khan delivers a fine performance in this film which puts the difference between Bharat and India in sharp focus. Pakistani actor Saba Qamar gets some moments too.
King Arthur movie review: A lot of heads roll down the gutter, a lot of eyes get rolled by the Mage summoning the magic to help Arthur.
Alien Covenant movie review: Michael Fassbender the actor of the perfect composure (a bang-on description, by a character in the film), is superb again, even when all the flying, fighting, flirting and fuming are being done.
Meri Pyaari Bindu movie review: Parineeti Chopra's Bindu is bubbly and cute but stays on the surface. Ayushmann Khurrana's Abhi gets more to play with. But will their romance make us sing Abhi Na jao Chhod ke?
Sarkar 3 movie review: The best thing you can say about Amitabh Bachchan and Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar 3 is that it is not as ghastly as Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag.
Mantostaan movie review: ‘Mantostaan’ is based on four Manto stories, and functions as a quartet, which cuts from one story to the other, the pace increasing as the film progresses.
Baahubali 2 movie review: Baahubali The Beginning was enormously enjoyable. Baahubali The Conclusion comes to life only in bits and pieces and the credit for it should goes to Prabhas.
Shubhashish Bhutiani, director of Mukti Bhawan, on creating a story about death at 25, how age has little to do with mature cinema, and his mental notes on history and religion
Unforgettable is about current girlfriends and ex-wives, one a “chief online editor” and another “a Standford graduate”
Noor movie review: It isn’t really Sonakshi Sinha’s fault that Noor Roy Choudhary comes off as a complete klutz as a crusading journo. She is simply practising the movie’ s notion of journalism, which is as fuzzy and unrealistic.
The Zookeeper's Wife movie review: If you will remember anything after watching this film, it will be Antonina (Jessica Chastain) helping save an elephant calf.
Sonata movie review: Despite strong women characters played by Shabana Azmi, Aparna Sen and Lillete Dubey, Sonata stays only on surface.
Maatr movie review: Crass, cringe-inducing and downright sordid, this Raveena Tandon rape-and-revenge thriller makes you ask just one question -- who writes this stuff?
Begum Jaan movie review: The climax is full of fire and faux brimstone and lots of speechifying, as the ladies of easy virtue become a gun-toting ‘fauj’.
Colossal movie review: While one can still pardon Anne Hathaway almost anything, Jason Sudeikis is just not likeable enough for us to care.
Going In Style movie review: There are so many cliches running through the film that it is a miracle it got actors such as Caine, Freeman and Arkin to play along.
Mirza Juuliet movie review: This film comes stuffed with the most abominable clichés which are clearly aligned to the power structures in place.
Mukti Bhawan movie review: Other than a few faultlines, this is a superb film that shows us how it is entirely possible to die, irradiated by life.
The Salesman movie review: In this delicately crafted story of life, marriage, everyday violence -- and kindness -- writer-director Asghar Farhadi proves once again that there are few filmmakers like him in turning the camera inwards.
Poorna movie review: Fairytales do come true and the story of Poorna Malavath is the proof. Her biopic, directed by Rahul bose, does justice to the extraordinary story of a 13-year-old tribal girl climbing Mt Everest.
Naam Shabana movie review: Except for a few stray sequences in which the limber Taapsee Pannu faces up to the bad guys, and the ones in which co-star Akshay Kumar moves in to demonstrate how the big boys do it, there is nothing either novel or interesting about the film.
Life movie review: In Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal's film, the bodies keep piling, the sacrifices keep multiplying, the alien keeps growing, and the story keeps shrinking.
Phillauri movie review: Shashi (Anushka Sharma) is an obedient younger sister of a man who is a martinet. He keeps her under strict watch, unaware that she writes poetry, and is slowly being charmed by a local ‘gawaiyaa’ (Diljit Dosanjh).
Anaarkali of Aarah movie review: With Anar, Swara Bhaskar gets a role worthy of her. The film uses lines and situations involving crudity but never turns vulgar. Nowhere does Anaarkali of Aarah makes you cringe, and that’s a real achievement.
Beauty and the Beast movie review: Beauty and the Beast remain safe and secure within its Disney-defined dimensions; its infantile proclamations about a gay character and mixed race couples even further underlining what goes for risk-taking in that world.
Mantra movie review: Rajat Kapoor delivers a stand-out performance as a man struggling in the changing economic scenario but is failed by the uneven film.
Machine movie review: Abbas-Mustan cherrypick from their hits Soldier, Baazigar and Race to launch Mustafa Burmawala, son of Abbas. But this squelchy plot needed acting chops and charisma which the film's leads lack.
Trapped movie review: Despite some heart-in-the-mouth moments, Rajkummar Rao's Trapped stays uneven as his despair stays on the surface when we want to see the soul.
Kong Skull Island movie review: This film revives the King Kong franchise as US lands in the giant apes'backyard and let the bombs fall. For an anti-war film, it is really high on war imagery.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie review: This Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan-starrer is the kind of mainstream film which shifts how ‘heroes’ and heroines’ are constructed and presented, without being too radical. Given that it is a festive release and produced by Dharma, does so while being extremely entertaining.
Commando 2 movie review: Vidyut Jammwal is back as the capable Commando Karan but does the movie justify his jaw-droppingly agile moves?
Jackie movie review: As an exploration of a woman finding her feet in the limelight, cast by a famous husband or family, Jackie could have worked.
