Movie review: Jahnu Barua's Ajeyo gives man's indefatigable spirit a new meaning

Assamese filmmaker Jahnu Barua's film is not about war or peace. Neither is it strictly a revolutionary film. At its heart, Ajeyo is one of those sane voices we yearn to hear when confronted with the society's ills.

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Daawat-e-Ishq is a flavourless feast

Daawat-e-Ishq is the equivalent of an elaborate meal that begins with a mouth-watering appetiser but slowly loses flavour, aroma and deliciousness, so that by the time you reach dessert, you are exhausted, disappointed and badly in need of fresh air.
The Maze Runner

Movie review by Rashid Irani: The Maze Runner creates a nightmarish environment

Based on the novel of the same name by James Dashner, the sci-fi tinged tale is set in a devastated futuristic world. Graphics designer turned first-time feature filmmaker Wes Ball has done a commendable job in telescoping the story for the big screen, writes Rashid Irani.

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Khoobsurat is pretty plain

Khoobsurat, the official remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 hit about an effervescent girl who enters a strict household and teaches everyone how to laugh and live life to the fullest is sweet, benign and bland, writes Anupama Chopra
Aadama Jaichomada

Movie review: Badri's Aadama Jaichomada looks at spot-fixing with a comic turn

What Aadama Jaichomada lacks as a story, it makes up with its treatment. With a threadbare plot about a bookie on the hunt for a bowler, the director weaves a funny tale of deception and guile. After a dud called Thillu Mullu, Badri's new Tamil film serves an ace.
Aditya Roy Kapur, Parineeti Chopra

Movie review: Daawat-e-Ishq is a delicious invite you shouldn't say no to

Aditya Roy Kapoor will surprise you with his easy manners and understanding of script in his latest release. He is good, probably the best of the lot. Daawat-e-ishq is not a film to miss this weekend.
The Maze Runner

Movie review: The Maze Runner doesn't find its own path

There isn't anything inherently wrong with The Maze Runner. It's just that it does so little to find its own path separate from its dystopia brethren: the teenage rebellion, the coming-of-age metaphors, the heavy sequel-baiting.

Movie review: Fawad Khan, Kirron Kher impress but fail to save Khoobsurat

Shashanka Ghosh's remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Khoobsurat, starring Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan, hits theatres on Friday. Despite decent performances from Pakistani actor Fawad Khan and Kirron Kher's Punjabi mom-act, the film is not worth your time.
Ravi Teja

Movie review: Actor Ravi Teja's Power is botched up entertainment

Power shows how lazy Telugu filmmakers who team up with stars have become. Writer-director KS Ravindra, who has earlier penned stories for Ravi Teja's successful films, borrows from his own films to make Power, which is one of the worst films in Ravi Teja's career.
Bruce Wilis

Movie review by Rashid Irani: Even Bruce Willis, John Cusack can't save The Prince

Their names may be above the title but don’t let that fool you. Saddled with insignificant supporting roles, Bruce Willis and John Cusack barely tap into their considerable talents in this film. The real star (if he can be called that) of this kidnap thriller is Jason Patric.
