Thittam Irandu movie review: The grave failing of Vignesh Karthik is that he fails to make the audience care for what’s going on in the film.
Mimi movie review: The Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi starrer eventually takes recourse to melodrama. Tears flow, chests are beaten and a wholly contrived end finishes up things.
Hungama 2 movie review: Only a few people keep you from fleeing this loud and obvious fare – a svelte Shilpa Shetty, Ashutosh Rana playing a curmudgeon, and Priyadarshan staple Paresh Rawal.
Feels Like Ishq review: While Lust Stories dealt with messy relationships with occasional darker intonations, Feels Like Ishq takes a more lighthearted view at romance.
14 Phere review: Between the long-drawn, wholly preposterous idea of fake ‘baraatis’, and two ‘shaadis’, there’s just confusion in this Vikrant Massey-Kriti Kharbanda film.
Sarpatta Parambarai movie review: Pa Ranjith has tried to show boxing as authentically as possible. It might not be a giant leap for the genre, but it takes first baby step in the right direction.
Ikkat movie review: Ikkat is packed with clean humour, which is rooted in the way Bengalureans live, talk, eat and entertain each other. The comedy stems from the couple's struggle to cope with life under lockdown.
Narappa movie review: Dhanush's Asuran wasn't a work of art and neither is Venkatesh-starrer Narappa. It is, however, bold and honest and will always remain hard-hitting, powerful and timely.
Fear Street Part Three 1666 movie review: The film has a riveting third act which somehow manages to end the movie with sincerity and is still brimming with the campy fun of likes of The Goonies.
Vaazhl review: Like Aruvi, Vaazhl is a product of personal filmmaking. It is smart, funny and even hallucinatory.
Toofaan review: Farhan Akhtar as ‘Toofaan-the-new-Muhammad-Ali’ is completely convincing, both as a novice who is a fast learner, and the dejected warhorse.
Malik movie review: Fahadh Faasil film parlays its time and place and characters into a sprawling sparkler of a film, told with great fluidity, and backed by solid performances.
Sara'S movie review: Every character in this Anna Ben starrer is agreeable to a fault. It works as an educational film, but the conservative setting fails to create any dramatic tension in the narration.
Haseen Dillruba movie review: The characters are tropes in this Taapsee Pannu-Vikrant Massey film where each roiling emotion is spelt out, and what you get is blandness, writes Shubhra Gupta.
The Tomorrow War movie review: Bizarre stuff keeps happening, and you are meant to take everything at face value. If it were a self-aware, dumb action movie like, say, the recent Mortal Kombat, the silliness would be more palatable.
Cold Case movie review: This film has a very conventional premise of a dead person seeking justice from beyond the grave or, in this case, out of a rickety fridge.
Ray movie review: This Netflix anthology, based on short stories by Satyajit Ray, is a mixed bag. One segment stands out, another has promise and the other two don’t lift off the screen.
Batman The Long Halloween, Part One is a pretty solid Batman film. It tells a grim story adroitly with a suitably gloomy atmosphere and a dash of wry humour to boot.
If you can stomach the macho melodrama, the Fast and the Furious movies are ridiculous big-screen ballets, with cars shooting out of skyscrapers and airplanes, that at their best are the right kind of stupid.
Jagame Thandhiram movie review: Dhanush-in-veshti strides across sleety England streets in slo-mo, doing Rajini but wisely keeping it low key, channelling the street-smart, lovable scamp he specialises in.
Sherni movie review: As Vidya Balan fronts a film about the primacy of nature and human greed, headlined by the majestic tiger, you want to hand out props to Amit Masurkar.
Luca movie review: Directed by Enrico Casarosa, this Pixar film is not just a looker, it is also a funny, entertaining, and deeply emotional story about friendship and acceptance.
Those Who Wish Me Dead movie review: This Angelina Jolie-starrer is a capable action-thriller that is entertaining and well-acted but is also admittedly a bit garden-variety. If you are looking for something fresh or profound, there are other options.
Oslo movie review: In what it sets out to achieve, this Andrew Scott and Ruth Wilson-starrer succeeds for the most part. It is not a great political film. It is, however, an outstanding human drama.
Malaysia to Amnesia review: For a film that depends majorly on lie, deceit and adultery for humour, Malaysia to Amnesia is depressingly unwitty.
