Kappal

Kappal review: Sailing on stupidity

This ship wasn't meant to sail. With a threadbare plot and a story that's far too stretched, Kappal goes nowhere. The saving grace is its humour, snatches of which are interesting. With Rs 10-crore budget, Karthik G Krish could certainly have done a better job.
The Interview

The Interview review: It's a silly, yet indispensable movie

James Franco and Seth Rogen are both in their elements in The Interview. They are enjoying what they are doing and it shows. The jokes are infantile and sometimes fail to hit their target. This is no cult film or satire, it is a dumb comedy that is strangely enjoyable.
Ronit Roy, Ugly

Ugly review: It's dark and dystopian

If fairy tales exist, so must nightmares. But Bollywood so often escapes into the former - happy, carefree romances, or unreal stories of achievement - that Ugly comes as a shock.
Williams played the wax model of Theodore Roosevelt in the Night At The Museum; With Ben Stiller.

Night at the Museum 3 review: It has nothing new to offer

Despite a promising cast, this third and final film of the franchise lacks energy and inspiration. This is not to say that it does not have its moments, but they are few and intermittent. An extra star to the film though for having one of the very last performances of Robin Williams.
Kayal

Kayal review: Visually arresting but hardly a novel plot

Director Prabhu Solomon's new Tamil film is stunning to watch as the camera captures verdant landscapes and the sheer turbulence of 2004 tsunami. Sadly, the case is lost thanks to a dull plot, sloppy script and above average acting.
Rahul Bhatt

Ugly review: A dark, gripping movie that is a must watch

Watch Ugly for its cinematic brilliance; for a simple, touching and mind-blowing message. Watch it for Ronit Roy, Rahul Bhatt and Vineet Kumar Singh. But skip the movie if blood and shootout are all you want to see in an Anurag Kashyap venture.
Pisasu

Pisaasu review: A funny, not scary ghost

Mysskin-helmed Pisaasu is not a run-of-the-mill horror story and bears an unmistakable resemblance with Patrick Swayze-starrer Ghost. However, while Swayze's ghost infuses neither horror nor mystery into the plot, Pisaasu has these elements, though in a vague sort of way.
Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, PK

PK review: It's a signature Rajkumar Hirani creation

It's hard to believe at times that Rajkumar Hirani, as a director, has just four films to his credit. You somehow tend to think of him a veteran, someone whose work you look forward, and hold to a higher standard.
Aamir Khan, Sanjay Dutt

PK review: Aamir steals the show, it's a winner

PK has characteristics that’ll remind you of the penetrating power of Gandhian philosophy. He is not a naïve guy, but he believes in others’ virtues. He gets bitten, cries and then goes back to the work he has been doing, like most of us.
The Babadook

The Babadook review: A vastly superior maternal frightmare

Essie Davis is phenomenal in the role of the mother on the verge of a mental and physical breakdown.  The young Noah Wiseman is equally arresting as the wide-eyed son determined to protect his mother at all costs. Overall, The Babadook is a worthy addition to the psycho-horror genre.
