Daniel Radcliffe in What If

Movie review by Rashid Irani: What If is a winning diversion

Adapted from the 2003 play, Toothpaste and Cigars, this film marches bravely into Woody Allen and Nora Ephron territory. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, it asks if two people with obvious chemistry can maintain a low-key friends-only relationship without physical intimacy.
Sonali Cable

Movie review: Sonali Cable runs out of ideas

Rhea Chakraborty-Ali Fazal-starrer Sonali Cable about a feisty female cable operator threatened by an evil multinational is so amateurish that scenes intended to shock and sadden actually make you laugh, writes Sarit Ray.
Cameron Diaz

Movie review: Despite Cameron Diaz, you don't want to watch this Sex Tape

With such likable stars as Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel in the lead, Sex Tape could have been the perfect romantic comedy about love and lust. Instead, it comes across as a limp film venture stretches incredulity to the point of breaking.
Dracula Untold

Movie review: Dracula Untold is just the rehash of the old Dracula story

The trailers of Dracula Untold filled the audience with the anticipation that it may reveal some inconvenient truths about the Son of Devil, Dracula, but what the film dished out was nothing better than a rehash of the same 14th century Transylvania story.
Robert Downey Jr

Movie review: Watch The Judge for Robert Downey Jr's acting intensity

Despite its sloppy script, The Judge is gripping and engaging. We will thank Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall for that. Their sterling performances and man-o-man encounters are the highlights of this film.
Sonali Cable

Movie review: Sonali Cable has briliant script but fizzles out in execution

Anupam Kher, Rhea Chakroborty and Ali Fazal's Sonali Cable, which hits theatres on Friday, stands out of the clutter in the beginning courtesy its brilliant script. Sadly, sustaining  the tempo proves to be a big task for the makers and the film fizzles out tamely soon after.
Ekkees Topon Ki Salaami

Movie review: Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami has some sterling performances

Debutant director Ravindra Gautam handles the inflammatory material with care. He seems to know what we all pretend to not know. That corruption is not a beast from outerspace. It exists within all of us.

Movie review: The evil doll is back with Anabelle

A none-too-exciting prequel to last year’s overrated The Conjuring, Annabelle plunders elements from its genre predecessors including the Child’s Play series featuring that demonic doll, writes Rashid Irani.

Movie review: Annabelle, the 'haunted' doll, will not scare The Conjuring fans

Annabelle is one of those films you keep on top of your weekend must-watch list, thinking you'd need a full Sunday to recover from the horror fest, only to leave the theatre wondering whatever happened to those jitters. This prequel is not even half as scary as The Conjuring.

Tamil movie review: Yaan is very predictable

Yaan gives you the feeling that here's a film that was solely made to entice audiences with stunning visuals. The good news is that it succeeds at that, but the bad news is that great visuals don't make up for sloppy writing and execution.
