Geetha Govindam movie review: What’s refreshing about writer-director Parasuram’s approach to this romantic-comedy is the way he has handled the leading man.
Gold movie review: What makes the film worth a watch, despite some problems, are the flashes of well-done humour, the skirmishes between the players, and the rousing finale.
Satyamev Jayate movie review: We can get why John Abraham is in this film: he’s done this kind of movie before, and this looks like an extension, but what possessed the excellent Manoj Bajpayee, who can lift a film just by his presence, to do this?
Pyaar Prema Kaadhal review: Harish Kalyan and Raiza Wilson starrer Pyaar Prema Kaadhal isn’t perfect. The film felt too ‘wannabe’ at a few places. But these are very minor grouses for a film that gets most of the things right.
The Spy Who Dumped Me movie review: While Mila Kunis is an actor with good comic timing of her own, it's Kate McKinnon who walks away with the film.
Christopher Robin movie review: Christopher Robin does nothing special, and reduces its characters uniformly to more or less unidimensional figures.
Even Kamal Haasan can’t rise above the shockingly inept script, which he rescues only in a few places, when his trademark intelligent, wry self-awareness manages to kick in. The rest can be safely ignored.
Goodachari movie review: The big problem of Goodachari is that the story and screenplay have been arm-twisted to serve Adivi Sesh's fantasies of playing a stylish spy character. The result is we have a good-looking movie but no basic emotion to keep us invested.
Mulk Movie Review and Rating: Any film that does not demonize, that talks of peace and brotherhood, in these dark, cynical times, is to be lauded. Mulk is Anubhav Sinha’s best film, and it concerns us all.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again movie review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is an embarrassment of a frothy film sustained only by the nostalgia for ABBA and the gamely charm and talent of its older cast.
Fanney Khan Movie Review and Rating: A film starring a bunch of our top star-actors can be so off the mark is a sobering, dismal thought. This film, based on a Belgian film Everybody’s Famous, is unbelievably awful.
Ghajinikanth movie review: There are several ways to keep the viewer engaged - it could be through the story, it’s characters, the writing or the filmmaking. Sadly, Ghajinikanth doesn’t tick any of the boxes.
Karwaan review and rating: Karwaan is aiming for an easy, offhand charm, and we get that only in bits and pieces, especially when Irrfan hits his stride on occasion, or when Dulquer proves just how good he can be by not doing much at all.
Mohini movie review: Mohini could have been more fun if she had gotten to thrash up some men for real. It would have been fun to see Trisha perform some actual stunts.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout movie review: Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible – Fallout offers not just action that sizzles but action we can largely follow, happening to people we grow to care about.
Junga movie review: Had Junga focused more on the 'Ezhai, Kanja Don', it would have been thoroughly enjoyable. Instead it becomes a product of something that the film itself criticises at a point.
Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 movie review: It’s a crowded film, and several characters get short shrift: Soha Ali Khan, as the permanently inebriated ‘second wife’ of Saheb, is blink-and-miss. There’s too much scatter-shot action, with the plot all over the place.
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation movie review: All said and done, as Dracula himself puts it, a cruise is nothing but a hotel on water. And it's about time this film checked out of one.
Koode movie review: Prithviraj is convincing as a person who has experienced unspeakable abuse. I liked the way Anjali has handled Parvathy's character. Even as she doesn't get a lot of speaking lines, Sophie's reactions tell a lot without saying anything.
Skyscraper movie review: Rawson Marshall Thurber is more intent on showcasing Dwayne Johnson’s indisputable superhuman, but also much exposed, talents.
