Scarlett Johansson in Lucy

Movie Review: Watch Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy for stunning special effects

Lucy is like watching a puppy run into a glass door again and again, bumping it’s head while another door is wide open. You know that it is being stupid and downright dumb, but it is just so beautiful and enthusiastic that you still don’t want it to stop.
22 Jump Street

Movie review: 22 Jump Street is too rehashed for its own good

The best praise and/or criticism one can offer for this Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum starrer is that it often feels like a playlist of funny viral videos on YouTube being played at a random.
hercules

Movie review: Hercules is for die-hard action fans

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson plays not quite the mythical Hercules in this revisionist film which is high on thrill factor but low on story. If an entertainer is what you are looking for this weekend, this one's for you. 
Kick

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Salman Khan's Kick is all charisma, logic-free story

Kick is an outrageously silly film. It lurches from a thwarted love story to infantile comedy to slick action to shamelessly manipulative melodrama without any attempt at coherence or consistency, writes Anupama Chopra. Kick biggest opener of 2014, earns Rs. 53 crore in 2 days
Ralph Fiennes

Movie review by Rashid Irani: The Grand Budapest Hotel is a trip to bountiful

A comic caper tinged with melancholy, Anderson’s eighth feature is mostly set in a fictional East European republic during the early 1930s. In the leads, both Ralph Fiennes and newcomer Tony Revolori deliver sparkling comedic turns. Rashid Irani writes.
Ralph Fiennes

Movie review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui overpowers Salman Khan in Kick

Bhai fans, rejoice! For a change, Salman Khan's Kick has much more going for it than just his charisma. It has a story and some brilliant performances. It also has Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Randeep Hooda, Nargis Fakhri and Jacqueline Fernandes. Want more?
Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah

Movie review: Watch Thirumanam Enum Nikkah only for Nazriya Nazim

Aneesh's Thirumanam Enum Nikkah has a story and script that seem to have been penned in the most bizarre style. Except for Nazriya Nazim, who is superbly charming as the girl playing both a Muslim and a Hindu, the rest of the cast are no better than caricatures.
Grand Budapest Hotel

Movie review: The Grand Budapest Hotel is a sweet treat

Director Wes Anderson weaves a delightful yet quirky murder mystery. Ralph Fiennes as the flamboyant concierge, who offers special in-room services to rich old ladies, is a treat to watch. This one goes on the must-watch list..
Dhanush, Vellai Illa Pattadhari

Movie review: Vellai Illa Pattadhari has great theme, poor script

Although Vellai Illa Pattadhari presents a grave social malaise -- that of joblessness among engineering graduates in Tamil Nadu -- the script plays spoilsport. Performances by the lead pair Dhanush or Amala Paul do not lift the movie either.
begin again

Movie review of Begin Again: this feel-good romance is for lovers of music

Poignant, enthusiastic and suffused with those sunshine moments, this languid romance is for lovers of music. Keep your expectations low and this one will send you home happy. Watch it for Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley's performances.
