Naaradan movie review: Tovino Thomas, Sharafudheen and Anna Ben are in form and deliver a solid performance in a film that borrows heavily from our political reality.
Rudra review: There really can’t be a better choice to play that dark but inherently noble character in Disney+ Hotstar series than Ajay Devgn, because he owned that template years before.
The Batman review: The Batman makes a big deal of a lot about its hero. Everything about him moves in slower motion, which by the way could partly explain the bloated 3-hour length of the film.
Hey Sinamika review: Dulquer Salmaan, Kajal Aggarwal, and Aditi Rao Hydari-starrer is about two women fighting for the same man, a theme that has been explored innumerable times in Tamil films and soaps.
Jhund movie review: This Nagraj Manjule film can never quite make up its mind whether it wants to treat Amitabh Bachchan’s Borade as a hero, or focus the spotlight on the hardscrabble lives of the slum kids.
Gunda Jayan plays a typical patriarch who doesn't bother about his niece's choices and forces marriage upon her. The wedding and the drama around it forms the crux of the film.
Licorice Pizza movie review: Paul Thomas Anderson’s most relaxed and happy film, Licorice Pizza has hardly any clouds on its horizon.
Bheemla Nayak movie review: The Telugu remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum is all about one man and one man only -- Bheemla Nayak aka Pawan Kalyan.
Gangubai Kathiawadi movie review: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest is the kind of old-fashioned dialogue-heavy, sentiment-on-sleeve film which Bollywood is forgetting how to make.
Love Hostel movie review: As compared to Shanker Raman’s ‘Gurgaon’, ‘Love Hostel’ has more immediacy in its execution, which makes its nonstop violence more impactful.
Lamb movie review: Noomi Rapace delivers a magnificently warm performance in A24's frigid arthouse horror, out on MUBI.
Valimai movie review: Vinoth's idea of creating an urban legend goes awry when the film fails to distinguish Ajith Kumar's offscreen persona from Ajith Kumar's character in Valimai.
Petite Maman movie review: Directed by Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Céline Sciamma, this 72-minute film explores themes like grief, loneliness, death, and acceptance through the perspective of two little girls.
Uncharted review: Director Ruben Fleischer stuffs the film with way too many strands than he can handle, way too much digging around a dungeon, and way less mystery than the premise promises.
A Thursday movie review: The chief problem with Yami Gautam film is that we do not take any of this seriously, whether it is Naina brandishing a gun, or snarling and cooing at her hostages.
I Want You Back movie review: Because of the humanity and warmth that Charlie Day and Jenny Slate bring to their characters, and clever, flowing dialogue, the movie has a real companionable charm and offers several worthwhile moments.
Freedom Fight review: All of the movies deal with some of the most important social problems of the country. And each of these films is narrated from the point of view of those who are less fortunate and who always end up getting a raw deal in the rigid power structure of our society.
FIR lacks the maturity of Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam. The lack of nuance in properly establishing the islamophobia, misunderstanding suffered by different communities and politics behind intensifying polarization have been left out from the movie for the convenience of the narration.
Marry Me movie review: One can't help but feel that this is the entirety of Jennifer Lopez's life that you are seeing on screen, as undoubtedly director Kat Coiro wants you to.
Death on the Nile movie review: With so many magnificent actors around, you just want Kenneth Branagh to get on with it. And wear a smaller moustache.
Badhaai Do movie review: We love rainbows. If only it didn’t get mainstream Bollywood so long to come to the point, and stick with it.
Gehraiyaan movie review: The foursome of Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Dhairya Karwa should have been a throbbing hot mess, but the film doesn’t go deep enough.
Mahaan review: The Vikram and Dhruv-starrer is a spicy action-family drama that captures the moral and spiritual struggle of our time. It could have been more if Karthik had slowed the pace a little and dug deep into the period and atmosphere.
Looop Lapeta review: Looop Lapeta takes much too long to warm up, and gets into its stride only after the interval. Its USP, the looping back of time upon itself, where certain things will happen differently depending upon how it all starts, starts to creak too soon.
One Cut Two Cut review: A dim-witted attempt at tomfoolery and the blind faith of Danish Sait and Vamsidhar Bhogaraju in people's large-heartedness to forgive them for their misadventures.
