Cats movie review:
Cats movie review: A musical devoid of any real zing and fun

It’s only Taylor Swift, descending perched on a crescent moon, sprinkling sparkling catnip powder, who looks like the cat that got the cream. There is really no other kind you want to watch.

Sab Kushal Mangal review

Sab Kushal Mangal movie review: The film breaks out of an uneasy mess by a contrivance, and tries to steer towards lightness by making Baba, the local yokel, fall for the very girl he has ‘uthwaaoed’.

Bhangra Paa Le movie review
January 4, 2020 8:06:07 am

Bhangra Paa Le movie review: A dance movie is defined by the quality of choreography. Both Sunny Kaushal and Rukhsar Dhillon are good, but the numbers never really leap off the screen. Passable, like the film.

Bombshell movie review
January 4, 2020 8:16:04 am

Bombshell movie review: Where Bombshell scores is in bringing out the casual sexism that dogs women in the workforce, from offhand compliments to insistence on shaved legs —take your pick from all in the middle.

Ghost Stories review
January 3, 2020 3:54:29 pm

Ghost Stories movie review: Overall, there’s not enough sustained unease or a sense of dread or foreboding. Nor is there too much originality: I got flashes of John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place, and Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca.

Sillu Karupatti movie review: Don't miss these cleverly-cut stories, which will engage deeply with you.

Avane Srimannarayana movie review
December 28, 2019 8:29:24 am

In spite of its flaws, Avane Srimannarayana is an important Kannada film. To put it like Narayana, the history of Kannada cinema could be divided into before and after Avane Srimannarayana.

Spies in Disguise movie review
December 27, 2019 3:06:41 pm

Spies in Disguise movie review: Even as you despair that this Will Smith and Tom Holland starrer will end up being yet another clash between the forces of good and evil -- do we really need them in animation too? -- and the power of teamwork and friendship, writer Brad Copeland and directors Nick Bruno and Troy Quane subvert the genre.

Binnu Ka Sapna review
December 27, 2019 1:25:47 pm

Binnu Ka Sapna movie review: There’s no doubt that Binnu Ka Sapna is a powerful testament to the build-up of messed-up testosterone when confronted with constant violence, of both the physical and mental kind

good newws movie review
December 28, 2019 8:39:24 am

Good Newwz movie review: Good Newwz works best when it is being its bawdy, silly, raucous self. It dips when it veers towards bring-out-the-hankies emotion bowing to the dictum of ‘how can a Bollywood film not make you laugh and cry at the same time’.

Driving Licence
December 21, 2019 9:56:39 am

Driving Licence movie review: Starring Prithviraj and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles, director Lal Jr and his writer Sachy have conceived a solid premise that makes this meta-film an engrossing watch.

Thambi movie review
December 21, 2019 8:42:43 am

Thambi movie review: This Karthi and Jyotika starrer could have been so much more but settles for much less.

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker box office
December 21, 2019 8:38:01 am

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker review: The reason why this film works (as opposed to the many editions which were overpowered by clanking machines) is because of the emotional connect it creates with us.

Hero movie review
December 21, 2019 8:39:57 am

Hero movie review: Starring Sivakarthikeyan, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Arjun Sarja and Abhay Deol, Hero plays out like a collection of "Ultimate Quotable Quotes."

Dabangg 3 movie review:
December 21, 2019 8:36:04 am

Dabangg 3 movie review: Dabangg 3, which has a long back-story of how Chulbul came to be called Chulbul, is not just a dreary mish-mash of the previous ones, it is also a cringe-fest.

6 Underground movie review
December 14, 2019 8:49:45 am

6 Underground movie review: The problem with 6 Underground is not the story, but the repetition in the narrative. The over two-hour film would have worked better had it been shortened at least by half an hour.

Champion movie review
December 13, 2019 5:13:30 pm

Champion movie review: This Susienthiran-directorial sticks to a template and fails to impress.

The Body movie review
December 14, 2019 8:48:34 am

Everything in it is flat: the plot, the performers, the alleged twists. And that must have taken some doing, given that the filmmakers had a ready-made plot to dip into.

Mardaani 2 movie review
December 14, 2019 8:43:00 am

Rani Mukerji is clearly the hero. The men around her, a subordinate who badmouths her, a few loyal juniors, a senior who alternately backs her and scolds her, all have familiar beats.

Capmaari movie review
December 13, 2019 9:16:07 am

Capmaari movie review: Capmaari is soft porn-like material that masquerades as a romantic comedy.
