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.

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

Movie review: Badri's Aadama Jaichomada looks at spot-fixing, albeit 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Bipasha Basu's Creature 3D is foolish

What is a brahmarakshas? According to Vikram Bhatt’s Creature 3D, it’s a cross between a lizard and a dinosaur, with a splash of Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean thrown in. It is also one of the many reasons why this is one of those supremely foolish films.

Movie review: Screenplay is the real monster in Creature 3D

Director Vikram Bhatt's latest movie Creature 3D is about Ahana (Bipasha Basu), who decides to open a forest resort in Himachal Pradesh. Her life takes an unprecedented turn when she encounters a monster.

Movie review: Deepika-Arjun-starrer Finding Fanny is a slow, but engaging film

Finding Fanny is a brilliant take on emotions and philosophies of love and life. If Bollywood masala or a run-of-the-mill love story is what you're looking for, don't waste your time on this one. But if a light-hearted take on life and love moves you, book your tickets now.

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Priyanka shines in Mary Kom

Despite some flaws, Mary Kom is a worthy attempt. The film has sincerity and has been crafted with care. Apart from Mary herself, it gives us a terrific male role model — Onler, who encouraged Mary to return to boxing while he looked after their twin sons.

Movie review by Rashid Irani: Sin City 2 is a sin-tillating sequel

Nine years after they collaborated on Sin City, comic book artist Frank Miller and maverick filmmaker Robert Rodriguez reunite to co-direct this eye-popping sequel.  

Movie Review of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is ‘eye-popping’ in every sense of the word

Replete with all the trademark Frank Miller-esque gruesome graphics and ‘badass’ characters, Sin City 2 has everything, and more, of what we expected from it. Even the actors that continue from the first part are in the same mood and the new ones only add to the assorted platter.
