Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya review: Alia Bhatt holds her own in this ode to DDLJ

Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania is a conscious ode to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Debutant writer-director Shashank Khaitan makes enough bluntly obvious references to ensure that you know this — from the title, to scenes from the film playing on TV sets, to a hero who mouths lines straight out of that script.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Movie review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is emotionally charged

From great special effects to brilliant performances, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has it all. A worthy successor to the first part, it is for viewers who want their entertainment with a twist of intellect.
Ramanujan Movie

Movie review: Abhinay is stiff and wooden as Ramanujam

Gnana Rajasekaran's latest film Ramanujan is a nuanced and balanced view of the Indian mathematical prodigy's life in both figures and outside it, especially his mother and wife. Sadly, the film loses out because its lead actor is just not right for the role.

Movie review by Rashid Irani: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is an overblown simian-versus-sapiens spectacle which fails to break through the tried-and-tested action-adventure formula.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Movie review: Ashutosh Rana delivers stand-out performance in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya

Watch Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya for wonderful performances, Ashutosh Rana and smart screenplay. But do remember it's one of the dreamy, larger-than-life and low on logic Bollywood movies, writes Sweta Kaushal.
Arima Nambi

Movie review: Arima Nambi is a thriller gone haywire

As much as Shankar’s work manages to retain a fair degree of thrill, much of the script is awfully silly. Logic is out, and the story is synonymous with fantasy, writes Gautaman Bhaskaran.
Bobby Jasoos

Movie review: Bobby Jasoos is simplistic but positive

Balan has done such films in the past and deserves credit for pulling it off again. The overall story remains simplistic. But it serves its purpose — of shining a light on a community that is underrepresented in Bollywood films, writes Sarit Ray.
The Fault in our Stars

Movie review by Rashid Irani: Watch The Fault In Our Stars for Shailene Woodley

Aimed at activating the viewer’s tear ducts, The Fault In Our Stars rarely manages to deliver any truly affecting emotion. Flirting with mawkishness from the get-go, the plot zeroes in on two terminally ill teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. Rashid Irani writes.
The fault in our Stars

Movie review: The Fault in Our Stars is witty, engaging

Even though this is a film about two teenagers falling in love after meeting in a cancer support group, director Joosh Boone stays away from the sick flick cliches. A very impressive Shailene Woodley makes the film an engaging watch.
Lekar Hum Deewana Dil

Movie Review: Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is an 'epic fail'

Director Arif Ali's film is plain torture. Two people fall in love, they fall out of it, and by the last frame, come back together again...all this for no apparent reason. Nothing in the film falls in the realms of logic. Watch it only if your life depends on it.
