Movie Review: Chhichhore

“Chhichhore” opens with a group of men running to playfully douse each other with water in what is supposed to be an initiation ritual of sorts. The men look too old to be college students, and the scene, set in a run-down college hostel, is not pretty to look at – but director Nitesh Tiwari manages to capture their camaraderie.

Movie Review: ‘Saaho’

The trailer of “Saaho” promised high-octane action, special effects and stylised sequences. Like a stock opening sequence that starts with an extreme close-up and zooms out to reveal a different picture, “Saaho” is a whole other movie than the trailer lets on.

Movie Review: 'Mission Mangal'

With its overarching tone of naiveté, “Mission Mangal” hopes to convince its viewers that rocket science isn't, well, rocket science.

Movie Review: Batla House

Nikhil Advani's “Batla House”, Bollywood's take on an incident in which three men were killed in a police raid in the Indian capital in September 2008, may as well have been titled “In defense of the Delhi Police”.

Movie Review: 'Jabariya Jodi'

Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra have come a long way since they last shared screen space in the 2014 Bollywood film, “Hasee Toh Phasee”. While the two have proven their acting chops since, their decision to sign on for “Jabariya Jodi” (Unwilling Couples) will always remain a deeper mystery than why this film was written in the first place.

Movie Review: 'Khandaani Shafakhana'

Shilpi Dasgupta’s "Khandaani Shafakhana" was intended to be a comedy that revolves around sex, on the lines of "Vicky Donor" and "Badhaai Ho". However, while the earlier films were lauded as wholesome entertainers, the Sonakshi Sinha-starrer is a wasted effort.

Movie Review: ‘Judgementall Hai Kya?’

Prakash Kovelamudi’s “Judgementall Hai Kya?” begins with a tragedy. Bobby (Kangana Ranaut) struggles to cope with the trauma of witnessing her parents’ abusive marriage as a child.

Movie Review: 'Arjun Patiala'

Rohit Jugraj’s “Arjun Patiala” is a film within a film. An enthusiastic director narrates the story to a jaded producer as the plot plays out on screen. It is fitting that the director and producer are fast asleep by the end of the film – “Arjun Patiala” does little to keep its viewers awake during its 106 minutes.
