Saif Ali Khan, Ileana D’Cruz

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Happy Ending isn’t half as clever as it needed to be

Yudi Jaitley, the hero of Happy Ending, is described by one of his many ex-girlfriends as ‘a thoughtful jerk’. Played by Saif Ali Khan, Yudi is a commitment-phobic philanderer who simply can’t bring himself to say ‘I love you’.
The Equalizer

The Equalizer review: This thriller is formulaic and mediocre

The Equalizer is a passable thriller that tries to establish Denzel Washington as a middle-aged action hero, a la Liam Neeson. Here, we get to see Washington kill a lot of people. Yawn. OK, he does it in somewhat inventive ways. Still: Yawn.
Happy Ending

Happy Ending review: How different actually is ‘different’?

Happy Ending can hold your attention throughout its length except some not-so-necessary intimate scenes. There is enough in the story to provide you a good dose of entertainment, you just don’t need to expect too much.
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels

Dumb and Dumber To review: This Jim Carrey film lives up to its title

Twenty years have passed since audiences first met and improbably fell for Lloyd and Harry (Jeff Daniels), and the boys are up to their same old stunts, which is the fundamental problem: They've stayed the same. We've changed.
Govinda, Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar in Kill Dil title track

Movie review by Anupama Chopra: Govinda shines in Shaad Ali's Kill Dil

Director Shaad Ali's film is its own thing - basically a pulpy, retro-cool, Bollywood Western set in Delhi, with dollops of romance, comedy, and the one and only Govinda.
John Wick

John Wick review: This Keanu Reeves-starrer is only for action fans

An A-list film this is not but if some good old action is what you are looking for, this is your manna from heaven. Just go in expecting a wafer-thin plot.

Kill Dil review: A predictable story mars the genius of Govinda, Ranveer Singh's performances

Its predictable and cliched closing notwithstanding, do take time out for Kill Dil for Govinda's power-packed performance and Ranveer Singh's energetic presence. Add some wacky, fun dialogues to the combo and you might just like this one.

Boyhood review: Growing up in real time never looked better

With Boyhood, Linklater has managed to make an epic and even stayed true to all the nuances of relationships. He's skidded through this herculean task with such ease and dexterity that will leave you in awe of the man and his art.
Indian Judiciary

A thorough trial

Court is a severe indictment of the Indian judiciary, but it’s also an insight into the various divides — class, money, caste, region, religion, writes Anupama Chopra.
Still from Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Nightcrawler review by Rashid Irani: Meet the new American psycho

Director Dan Gilroy displays expert command over the medium. The City of Angels is photographed with breathtaking virtuosity by Robert Elswit. A sonorous music score by James Newton Howard adds to the film’s impact.
