Incredibles 2 movie review: The highest points of the film and its acutest observations — even if predictable — remain Mr Incredible Bob Parr’s struggles with reconciling to the success of his wife, Elastigirl Helen, in a new superhero role.
Ocean's 8 movie review: Scene-stealers in their own right, neither Sandra Bullock nor Cate Blanchett manage to infuse their roles with that star gloss.
Tik Tik Tik movie review: It was clear that the director wanted to make a space film but he was not ready to think anything out of the box. Tik Tik Tik is blatantly unoriginal, illogical and unscientific to a large extent.
Hereditary movie review: Just when we are marvelling at the horror that can be wrought from family dynamics around a polished dinner table, Aster ditches the fork for the pitchfork.
Naa Nuvve movie review: The filmmakers terribly fail to build any kind of tension into the script and director Jayendra Panchapakesan's incoherent attempt at magic realism adds to our distress.
Sammohanam movie review: Sammohanam has its 'magical' moments. Aditi and Sudheer also strike an interesting chemistry. But, the film falls short of rising above its own limitations. It is likely because of the weak spots in Sameera's character.
Race 3 review: The movie is nothing but a recycled bin of too many car chases, explosions, buffed up characters strutting in slo-mo, and wilted lines.
Goli Soda 2 review: The film has been edited rather interestingly -- one of the things I found intriguing. It fades/dissolves from one story into another one without warning, looking like pieces of jigsaw puzzles that find its match.
Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom movie review: It's a film of our times. As scientists underline that we are now into the 'Anthropocene epoch' -- or a human-influenced age, for the first time in Earth's history -- and as man plays God with nature, Fallen Kingdom does well to catch on.
Kaala movie review: Kaala isn’t a film about a gangster but a film about revolution. And Ranjith stays true to his objective. The traces of what we saw in Kabali have been fleshed out and beautifully embellished.
The audience shared ideas of mortality at an Indian Express Film Club screening of Mukti Bhawan
You Were Never Really Here movie review: The Joaquin Phoenix starrer is disturbingly stylised given that it is dealing with a crime of such nature -- eventually leading up to a resolution that is almost too easy when all it has done is ask us to toughen up.
Officer movie review, rating: I really wish I could say that I really enjoyed RGV's Officer. And that RGV has got his mojo back and he made an interesting cop vs cop film, which kept me on the edge-of-the-seat from the start to end. But, I just can't.
Veere Di Wedding movie review: The four 'veeres', Kalindi (Kareena Kapoor), Avni (Sonam Kapoor), Sakshi (Swara Bhaskar) and Meera (Shikha Talsania), are a solid bunch despite their riches and their entitled troubles.
Phamous movie review: Why did the ladies sign up for this mess? Shriya Saran wears deep pink lipstick and a pout, while Mahie Gill is to be seen in precisely two-and-a-half scenes, with the camera hovering suggestively over both their bosoms.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero movie review, rating: The film clearly intends to be dark, edgy and cool. Trouble is, it spends too much of its time underlining its purpose, even getting a character to say these three adjectives.
Antony movie review: Promoted as India's first claustrophobic thriller, it is the viewer who gets a bout of claustrophobia as one can't wait to get out of the theatre.
Abhiyum Anuvum movie review: BR Vijayalakshmi takes some time to get to the core contradiction between the couple. The first-half of the film is spent on the couple finding each other, falling in love and getting married.
Bioscopewala movie review: The casting of this Danny Denzongpa film is inspired, just being able to watch the wonderful Danny on screen should have been good enough. But the film is choppy, especially in the way the father-daughter relationship is fashioned.
Book Club movie review: You smile as you see these women laugh out loud, try on gravity-defying undergarments, and try on their dates for size: this is a demographic which needs to be seen so much more because they are so much more at ease with who they are
