Naam Shabana movie review: Taapsee Pannu kicks some serious butt, Akshay Kumar comes in for a praiseworthy cameo to show how the big boys do it. But the film falls flat as a credible storyline goes missing.
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.
Lion movie review: There is nothing glorious about poverty, and every time you fear Garth Davis may resort to a trick like that, he stays away.
Rangoon movie review: The Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor film gets tangled in superimposing a love triangle on the time and place. While the second half improves the pace, it is a disappointingly patchy and disjointed effort.
Hebbuli movie review: The buzz around the film began with the release of the first look poster of the film featuring Sudeep in a commando outfit coupled with a trendy hairdo. Does the film live up to the expectations? Now that's a million dollar question.
Silence movie review: The good looking film ends up becoming a repetitive costume drama.
Hidden Figures movie review: Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan are as geeky and nerdy as the men, but they are treated as the ones who will clear the trash and offer clerical services, when asked.
Irada review: The Naseeruddin Shah-Arshad Warsi film gives nothing beyond caricatures, leaving aside the real issue.
Running Shaadi movie review: Despite a novel idea and a fresh pairing in Taapsee Pannu and Amit Sadh, this film fails to engage you.
The Ghazi Attack movie review: Rana Daggubati and Kay Kay Menon film could have been an engrossing crisis-at-sea drama but the film is so busy slaying Pakistanis that it loses sight of its core strengths.
The Space Between Us movie review: The film has many “facts", and a smattering of alternative facts.
Jolly LLB 2 movie review: Akshay Kumar film is such a cracking watch because it goes bravely where few films go these days: send across a message which doesn't feel forced about gender equality, religious amity and probity in legal profession.
A bit of the film is set in Dubai only to give us a car chase which features an unexpected back seat guest for Chan. Roars and crashes ensue, but it’s all a big yawn.
The Great wall movie review: The film is an excuse to showcase the expertise of ancient China when it comes to warfare, to the "barbarian" West.
Resident Evil The Final Chapter movie review: Milla Jovovich remains fighting fit as she drives off into the sunset saying "my work is not done", it's obvious none of the above matters.
Kung Fu Yoga movie review: Jackie Chan and Sonu Sood's promotions of this film was way better than anything that the movie has to offer.
Raees movie review: Shah Rukh Khan breaks through in some moments but is stymied by florid, seen-too-many-times flourishes in Raees. It is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who really shines through.
Kaabil movie review: Hrithik Roshan tries hard and offers us a great performance but the film plays strictly by numbers and you can see everything coming from a mile.
The Founder movie review: The Founder focuses too much on the business side of things -- including a passing reference to Coke sponsorship of menus -- to give us an insight into the man whose ambition now feeds "1% of the world's population" at any given time.
Coffee With D movie review: When the film is about Don Dawood and an Arnab Goswami doppelganger, you expect jokes galore. What you get instead is this craving to run as far away from theatre as possible.
Ok Jaanu movie review: This Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor film proves Bollywood needs to get more adept at depicting young love. Why do our lovers, so much quicker off the mark when it comes to locking lips, sound so juvenile?
Haraamkhor movie review: Shweta Tripathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui front a film about a topic we barely acknowledge, forget showing it in our films. Director Shlok Sharma shows talent.
Allied movie review: The passage of time allows Allied to take its characters beyond WWII, while not asking too many questions about it either.
Passengers movie review: With space travel offered up as the new adventure tour, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are actually accidental astronauts. And that is a real disservice to the impressive science of Passengers.
A Monster Calls movie review: It is a little too dark and sparse for little kids, and too obvious for those who have crossed over into adulthood
Sing movie review: Who doesn't like to watch a tired old mom or a repressed young son come unshackled on stage? Sing understands this well, and so does little more than putting each one of them on stage one by one.
