A Walk Among The Tombstones review.
Film review: A Walk Among The Tombstones

What can you say about a film that so swears about its cerebralism as to discuss sickle cell anaemia at some length, and then picturises a disturbing sequence of a 14-year-old being admired by two sexual predators against an astonishingly and unironically sunny number?

The Maze Runner comes in soberingly dark tones, backed by solid acting.

Daawat-e-Ishq review: The coming together of Gullu and Taaru feels like left-overs.

Its biggest strength is that it keeps it consistent, becoming one of those films that over-delivers because it under-promises.

Clearly, you need to find something for John Cusack to do in this mess of a film apart from look groggy eyed?

September 13, 20149:50 am

The 3D in the title is positioned such that it draws your eye immediately, and you know why as soon as the film begins.

Finding Fanny review: It is an unlikely bunch, getting together for an unlikely reason, and we are supposed to fall in love with the characters.

The album as a whole is lightweight, doesn’t offend the sensibilities, and does everything right to keep the songs radio-trendy.

Life of Crime is about four people who have all seen better days, living in a city that has seen better days. This sense of what could have been permeates this crime caper/character study.

September 5, 20145:55 pm

Ignore the graphic gore and violence sheathed in style, and Sin City is a very conservative story -- about privileged people who are bad, and the unprivileged ones who are good.

'Mary Kom' is biopic which starts with the caveat `based on the life incidents of’ immediately makes you suspicious.

Super-rich men who have had accidents in super-secret labs and now live in super-size castles in super-solitude are rarely up to any good.

And there you thought it was going all nice and simple with a brutal -- what else? -- Russian general-turned-politician with a rough taste -- what else? -- in the ladies.

August 30, 201411:56 am

You go in hoping for a fun ride. What you get is a limp con job.

August 22, 20143:24 pm

The subject could have easily become a turgid documentary. But the treatment makes it much more interesting.

Stallone is at it again, flexing his old muscles for yet another punch at any country that falls between Middle East and Central Asia

Movie Review: Mardaani - As Shivani Shivaji Roy, a Mumbai Crime Branch cop, Rani Mukerji plays it straight.

August 16, 20149:59 am

'Anjaan' features Suriya in a double role - one is a star and the other is an actor.

IT'S A sweet, sweet irony to have Katie Holmes star as a cold-as-ice mother and Director of Justice in Lois Lowry's version of an ordered, utopian society.

August 15, 20143:38 pm

The sequel to ‘Singham’ is chock-full of the usual car-on-jeep action. Explosions go off at regular intervals. Shoot-outs—one really well-shot-- occur frequently.

August 9, 201410:46 am

‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’ is a dish that is less an interesting mix of biryani-and-truffles, more flat soufflé.

This is the level of destruction in Guardians of the Galaxy, spread across planets and species in this multifarious universe of ours.

August 8, 20146:33 pm

On the first two aspects, Into The Storm succeeds, including in placing tornadoes 1, 2, 3...and on within the context of our times

August 9, 201411:47 am

Akshay Kumar's 'Entertainment' is dull and loud, with a brow so lowered that it reaches the floor.

August 1, 20148:26 pm

In the end, the problem with doing the same thing, however ironically served up, takes the film down.

August 4, 20143:42 pm

Besson's first action film in a long time -- shot in his familiar hyperkinetic style -- is more fictional science than science fiction.

July 31, 20144:41 pm

Hercules would be little more than a series of wars and body pile-ups strung together -- even if Ratner does manage to surprise once in a while.

July 25, 20143:45 pm

This may be the best work from director Wes Anderson.

July 25, 20145:24 pm

“We know that a Salman film is created solely to display his ‘andaaz’ designed to send his fans into a swoon.”

July 18, 20146:23 pm

Begin Again is almost hopeless in the cliched characters and story plots it trots out.

July 19, 20149:07 am

The sequel of the 2012 ‘Hate Story’ gives us a new vengeful woman. She’s been wronged by, who else, a man. And she will stop at nothing to get back at him.

So here’s finance whiz Amit Sahni ( Das) telling us what he likes in his ideal girl

July 18, 20141:20 pm

A remake of the surprise Tamil hit of the same name, the film proves a point. That successful horror doesn't need stars, it needs a solid script, and atmospherics.

July 18, 20141:04 pm

Age and a lifetime have no place in an animation, even though Up spared both a thought.

July 11, 20146:06 pm

"TELL me," whispers one human to another in the film, "doesn't the ape make your stomach crawl?" That question, my friend, is directed at you.

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania review: The film scores with its likeable lead pair. Varun Dhawan still has raw edges, Alia Bhatt is vibrant and fresh.
