Kalank movie review: Kalank doesn’t really lift off the screen. The whole feels like a giant set, stately and ponderous and minus impact; the cast all costumed and perfumed and largely life-less, sparking only in bits and pieces.
The Curse of the Weeping Woman movie review: Debutant director Michael Chaves, trying to earn his Conjuring stripes, stretches a thin story, and then some more, refusing to give either Llorana or Anna or her two children a break.
Kanchana 3 movie review: Kanchana 3 is a frustratingly cringe-worthy piece of work masquerading as “horror comedy” that makes you squirm. Beware, this is a fine example of how sequels shouldn’t be made.
Debutant director-software engineer Vivek Elangovan tries his best to tick all the boxes that would make a thriller. He wants his story to be racy, unpredictable and full of twists. Though Elangovan manages to achieve everything in bits and pieces, Vellaipookal fails to strike a chord with you.
Mehandi Circus movie review: Shweta Tripathi shines in this heart-crushing love story and you feel for her character when she says, “I didn’t know who you were till last month; now, you mean the world to me.” The Masaan girl is absolutely charming when she is not trying too hard.
Jersey movie review: Not just drama, Jersey has enough cricketing moments to draw you to the edge of the seat. Gowtam exactly knows how much of cricket should be shown at a given point in the narration, so that the game doesn't overshadow the human drama.
Madhura Raja movie review: Mammootty keeps the mood light with his strong performance. Mindless entertainers are a great way to veg out after a long week. Vysakh and his team have whipped up a high-calorie cheat meal.
The Tashkent Files movie review: The entire film is a series of eye-roll moments, pockmarked by dialogue that’s unintentionally hilarious. We don’t really have to wait for the big reveal to see the purpose of the film.
Pet Sematary movie review: Horror aficionados Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer are helped by a solid cast, who help establish the Creeds as a family who love each other and, importantly, whom we come to care for.
