Pinocchio movie review: Guillermo del Toro’s gorgeous Netflix film is a fantastic and frightening takedown of fascism

Pinocchio movie review: Directors Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson’s stop-motion adaptation of the classic children’s novel retains the story’s core, but presents it in a wholly original light.

Blurr movie review: The atmospherics are fine, but the characters, including the leading lady's who has maximum screen time, come off sketchy.

Salaam Venky movie review: Revathy eschews all understatement in this Kajol-starrer. Every sequence is created to fill you with pathos, and leave you teary-eyed.

Emancipation movie review: It's bold of Will Smith to return with a new film so soon after the biggest controversy of his life; if only the movie were as bold.

Vadh movie review: The film is a pulpy tale of murder, where an unlikely killer does away with a bad guy in the most gruesome manner possible.

robert downey jr documentary
December 4, 2022 9:36:03 am

Sr movie review: Robert Downey Jr's unconventional tribute to his late father is a moving parent-child story, but also a macabre peek at a dying man's last days.

December 4, 2022 9:36:23 am

Lady Chatterley's Lover movie review: Netflix's absorbing adaptation of DH Lawrence's revolutionary novel is carried by Emma Corrin and Jack O'Connell's performances.

December 2, 2022 5:11:49 pm

HIT 2 movie review: Sailesh messes up the way he presents and shapes the serial killer. He expects us to give him a lot of leeway and not worry about the glaring holes in the plot.

December 2, 2022 4:49:18 pm

DSP movie review: Vijay Sethupathi's collaboration with Ponram, who is known for jolly entertainers, has only yielded a bland and middling affair.

December 2, 2022 4:13:02 pm

Troll movie review: With a heart as big as the 'monster' at its centre, the new Netflix film from Tomb Raider director Roar Uthaug is old-fashioned entertainment that doesn't outstay its welcome.

India Lockdown movie review
December 3, 2022 8:27:57 am

India Lockdown review: The film affords a few moments, such as the one where the tired, exhausted family of four scavenge on rotten bananas or how an older woman rescues a younger one from the flesh trade.

Freddy movie review, Kartik Aaryan
December 3, 2022 8:26:37 am

Freddy movie review: Kartik Aaryan is getting better in roles where both he, and we, are required to take him seriously, and there are a couple of instances when he does give us the chills.

an action hero movie review
December 3, 2022 8:25:31 am

An Action Hero movie review: This Ayushmann Khurrana-Jaideep Ahlawat film comes stuffed with meta jokes, in-house gags, and a running jibe against the shouty TV shows and the hashtag #BoycottBollywood.

Gold review
December 1, 2022 7:08:31 pm

Gold review: This could be the beginning of Alphonse Puthren gravitating towards making films that reflect on social issues and the ongoing spiritual bankruptcy of society.

qala review 1200
December 3, 2022 7:16:50 am

Qala movie review: Babil Khan reminds you of his father, the late, brilliant Irrfan, because of some of his features that he has inherited, as well as, evidently, the acting gene. But it is equally evident that Babil is his own actor.

Agent Kannayiram movie review: Manoj Beedha’s sophomore film has a nice idea that never comes to fruition due to messy writing and underwhelming execution.

Strange World movie review
November 25, 2022 5:26:04 pm

Strange World movie review: Despite the film's rich CGI, it’s only when the humans and their conflicts, big and small, come to the forefront, that the film comes to life.

November 25, 2022 3:15:40 pm

Meet Cute movie review: Even though the film has problems, it offers a convincing vision of urban life.

bhediya review
November 25, 2022 6:38:20 pm

Bhediya movie review: Varun Dhawan does a good job of aligning with the tone of the film-- the horror is pretty much ‘naam-ke-vaaste’, comedy is what it is interested in and does it well.

guardians of the galaxy holiday special
November 25, 2022 8:53:39 am

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special review: Diverting but definitely not revolutionary, James Gunn's film brings some innocent fun back to the increasingly unwieldy Marvel Cinematic Universe.

the swimmers movie review
November 24, 2022 4:32:48 pm

The Swimmers movie review: Director Sally El Hosaini's Netflix film, based on a moving true story, is the cinematic equivalent of splashing around in the kiddie pool.
