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 Khan, Rajkumar Hirani's attempt to create a better world

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.

Martin Freeman

The Hobbit review: It brings the journey of Bilbo Baggins to a stirring conclusion

It’s the end of an era. The third and final instalment of the second Middle Earth trilogy based on the works of JRR Tolkien brings the journey of the heroic hobbit named Bilbo Baggins (Freeman) to a stirring conclusion.
Carnal Knowledge

Carnal Knowledge: This is a memorable portrait of curdled, cruel masculinity

Carnal Knowledge follows the lives of two friends over three decades. With the deep insecurities and men's twisted view of women well depicted in the movie, it still has the power to startle, writes Anupama Chopra.
Martin Freeman

The Hobbit 3 review: It is every bit the ending (beginning) LOTR deserved

This third installment maintains the light and often humorous spirit of the prequel franchise and still manages to remind us we are coming close to the actual LOTR with its lessons in the sins of greed and avarice.
Rajinikanth in and as Lingaa

Lingaa review: How much of 'Rajinikanth mannerisms' can one take?

Playing a vigilante yet again, Lingaa offers nothing new despite being one of Rajinikanth's better works in the recent past. Dishing out his trademark mannerisms at the cost of his characters' complexity, the actor is below par while his heroines stay as mere show pieces.

Movie review: Bhopal, A Prayer for Rain is mature, watch it for the subject

Watch A Prayer for Rain for the subject, if nothing else. And because in this extreme disaster, you will see reflected stories of negligence, cutting corners and exploitation that, 30 years later, still continue to be relevant.

Sulemani Keeda

Sulemani Keeda review by Anupama Chopra: It's lovely but narrow

Sulemani Keeda means 'a bug so big that it’s a pain in the ass'. Or at least that’s how writer-director Amit V Masurkar describes his film’s title. The set-up and characters are promising but Sulemani Keeda never becomes more than the sum of its parts because it’s too thin.
