It is also that rare Hindi film which has a real pair of lovers. Saif and Kareena flirt and kiss and cuddle and have a hard time keeping their hands off each other. Both play well together, but it is Khan who grabs you much more: when he is on, you see the character, not the actor.”

Laal Kaptaan

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta gave Laal Kaptaan a 1.5 stars rating. In her review, she wrote, “Laal Kaptaan, set in pre-Independence India, tracks a naga sadhu who is on a dangerous quest. Saif Ali Khan, who spends most of his time togged out as naga sadhu, face streaked with white and black, long dreadlocks snaking down his back, wielding swords and scabbards, is a sight. But the plot, such as there is, doesn’t hold, making the characters struggle for relevance.”
