Zero movie review: Bauua Singh’s show all the way

Bauua Singh is a character that will remain etched in audience’s hearts and minds forever, with SRK delivering one-of-his-career-best performances, right up there with his work in Darr, Swades, CDI, Baazigar, KHKN, DDLJ, and MNIK. Zero does have its ups and downs though — a thoroughly entertaining first half gets derailed to an extent by […]

Kedarnath movie review: Sara Ali Khan barely saves this sinking ship

Kedarnath is saddled with a plot that’s done to death, and what’s worse is that Director Abhishek Kapoor (who’s also one of the writers) and cowriter Kanika Dhillon seem to have adamantly refused to inject any novelty or semblance of uniqueness into the storytelling and presentation. Sushant Singh Rajput, too, fails to rise above a […]

The Possession of Hannah Grace review: Derivative but diabolically delightful

Short, simple, straightforward, but effectively scary — The Possession of Hannah Grace offers further proof that regardless how many times an idea or basic premise is repeated, it can still work, provided the writer and Director have the vision and conviction to juice the narrative into something different, interesting, exciting, and most importantly, entertaining. On […]

Mortal Engines movie review: The metallic junk of these engines is better than most post-apocalyptic junk out there

Mortal Engines is cool, stylish, visually arresting, action-packed, and boasts one of the better air-battle sequences since 1996’s Independence Day. Additionally, it doubles as one of the more refreshing additions to the oft cluttered post-apocalyptic sub-genre of sci-fi, despite succumbing to some of its cliches and predictability toward the end. Also, it must be said […]

Fahrenheit 11/9 movie review: Disturbing, Powerful, Relevant

Documentary movie Fahrenheit 11/9 is a shocking portrait of the socio-political, cultural, and economic structure of present-day America while also dishing out several eye-popping truths and theories for all those with a keen interest in world politics.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Review: Unlike any superhero film you’ve seen

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the most fun, unique, and coolest Spider-Man film to date. The visual style, animation, action, character design, and overall milieu are so impressively innovative that it feels likes the pages of comic book come to life with a dash of Japanese anime, film-noir, Looney Tunes, and even some scientific quantum […]

Mowgli movie review: A dark, different, but thoroughly entertaining Jungle Safari

The most faithful adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s timeless tale and hitherto the darkest Jungle Book recreation on screen — Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle is aimed at catering to an adult audience with its underlying themes of man vs. animal and forest depletion, but also has enough in the way of adventure and thrills to […]

Creed II movie review: Creed, Rocky, and Drago make for a boxing spectacle

Creed II may be quite predictable in places, but is still as dramatic, powerful, emotional, and entertaining as a boxing film should be, especially one that belongs to the Rocky franchise. Though not as great as it’s predecessor — which is, frankly, a boxing classic — this one is still a worthy inclusion to Rocky’s […]

Ralph Breaks the Internet Movie Review: Ralph learns the ups and downs of the internet and life

Ralph Breaks the Internet is ingeniously conceptualized, technologically savvy, frequently fresh, and intermittently breezy. In other words, it ticks most of the boxes that made the first part one of Disney’s best films ever. The only places where it falls short is in recreating the genuine warmth and humanity of Wreck-It Ralph or in inculcating […]

LoveYatri movie review: An ideal candidate for the “so bad that it’s good” tag

LoveYatri has a done-to-death plot, which wouldn’t be half as bad as it is had it not been saddled with every cliche in the book and executed with a complete lack of planning or direction. That’s not to say the film isn’t entertaining, though not due to any merit of its own, but rather because […]
