Horrible Bosses 2 review: Despite a talented cast, this film is vulgar, cheap

While the first Horrible Bosses tried to tap into the widely held fantasy of killing the overloads of the office, its sequel mines the farce in being your own boss.

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.

Gone Girl review: Dark and disturbing, this is one thriller you shouldn't miss

David Fincher's Gone Girl is a thriller for grown-ups. It is stylish and provides you edge-of-the-seat suspense while posing intricate questions about men, women and the marriages they make.

Movie review: Despite great performances, The Hundred-Foot Journey is bland

Take a talented British actor (Helen Mirren). Add an Indian tadka (Om Puri). Lather on the picturesque French countryside. Sprinkle liberally with gorgeous food shots, from bubbling, spicy Indian delicacies to French plates of truffles. And then make it corny.

Movie review of Guardians of the Galaxy: This visual extravaganza is sheer fun

One of the funniest movies to come out of the Marvel universe, Guardians of the Galaxy introduces you to a new set of superheroes who are as plucky as they are wacky. A good cast, an interesting story and some really smart dialogues make it a good watch.

Movie review: The Giver is no Hunger Games

The presence of Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep in supporting roles will help draw some attention from grown-ups who don't know the book series written by Lois Lowry, but this franchise won't come close to competing with The Hunger Games.

Movie review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is pure junk

This half-hearted reboot of Ninja Turtles leaves you dissatisfied. The film has neither charm nor soul and even the clever repartee that justifies a superhero flick is missing in this one.

The ship has sailed: Keira Knightley on being part of Pirates of the Caribbean 5

Actor Keira Knightley has confirmed that she is not going to be a part of Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Knightley, 29, played Elizabeth Swann and her co-star Orlando Bloom portrayed Will Turner Jr in the first three installments of the pirates saga.

Movie review: Hercules has eye-popping action

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson plays not quite the mythical Hercules in this revisionist film which is high on thrill factor but low on story. If an entertainer is what you are looking for this weekend, this one's for you. 

Movie review: The Grand Budapest Hotel is a sweet treat

Director Wes Anderson weaves a delightful yet quirky murder mystery. Ralph Fiennes as the flamboyant concierge, who offers special in-room services to rich old ladies, is a treat to watch. This one goes on the must-watch list..

Movie review of Begin Again: this feel-good romance is for lovers of music

Poignant, enthusiastic and suffused with those sunshine moments, this languid romance is for lovers of music. Keep your expectations low and this one will send you home happy. Watch it for Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley's performances.

Movie review by Rashid Irani: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a let-down

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.

Movie review: A pitch-perfect Woodley anchors The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars is, despite the occasional misstep in tone, largely a solid success - a film that not only manages the transition from page to screen nicely, but also navigates with skill that hugely tricky line between the touching and the trite.

Movie review: Watch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for Andy Serkis

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.
