Money Heist Season 5 Volume 2 Review: The Series Does Not Let You Take Your Eyes Off The Screen For A Second

Saibal Chatterjee | Saturday December 04, 2021

Money Heist Season 5 Volume 2: Unsurprisingly, there isn't a dull moment here: it is once again all vim and vigour and a synthesis of style and substance.

Tadap Review: Ahan Shetty Plays Debut Role Passably Well In Stale And Forgettable Film

<i>Bob Biswas</i> Review: Abhishek Bachchan's Spin-Off Is Disappointingly Pale Figure

Bob Biswas Review: Abhishek Bachchan's Spin-Off Is Disappointingly Pale Figure

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday December 03, 2021

Bob Biswas Review: The protagonist has no remembrance of things past. The audience does have memories of the crackling Kahaani. Comparisons are inevitable. The expectations remain largely unfulfilled.

<i>Antim</i> Review: Aayush Sharma Makes A Strong Impression. Yet, It Is Salman Khan All The Way

Antim Review: Aayush Sharma Makes A Strong Impression. Yet, It Is Salman Khan All The Way

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 26, 2021

Antim Review: Sachin Khedekar does have his moments but Chhaya Kadam is a mere passenger. Jisshu Sengupta, Nikitin Dheer and Sayaji Shinde are stranded in a screenplay that has little space for them beyond fleeting appearances.

<i>Satyameva Jayate 2</i> Review: Three John Abrahams, Two Too Many, In Maddening Mess Of A Movie

Satyameva Jayate 2 Review: Three John Abrahams, Two Too Many, In Maddening Mess Of A Movie

Saibal Chatterjee | Thursday November 25, 2021

Satyameva Jayate 2 Review: The soundtrack is shoddy and ear-splitting. The dialogues are clearly the handiwork of a third-rate rhymester. The characters do not speak, they howl. There are gems of unbridled silliness galore.

Bunty Aur Babli 2 Review: Comic Timing Comes Easy To Rani And Saif, The Script Plays Spoilsport

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 19, 2021

Bunty Aur Babli 2 Review: The actors - Rani Mukerji, sole survivor from the original cast, is joined by Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari - give it their collective best shot but are unable to rescue the film.

<i>Dhamaka</i> Review: Despite Kartik Aryan's Panache, Takedown Of Indian Journalism Is More A Whimper Than A Bang

Dhamaka Review: Despite Kartik Aryan's Panache, Takedown Of Indian Journalism Is More A Whimper Than A Bang

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 19, 2021

Dhamaka Raview: Kartik Aaryan fleshes out a believable television news anchor desperately seeking to regain his lost glory, conveying the restiveness and resolve of a man determined to go for broke no matter what.

<i>Your Honor 2</i> Review:  Jimmy Sheirgill Leads  Web-Series That's Easy To Recommend

Your Honor 2 Review: Jimmy Sheirgill Leads Web-Series That's Easy To Recommend

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 19, 2021

Your Honor 2 Review: Propelled by Jimmy Sheirgil and Mita Vashisht, this story of power privilege, morality and the legal system has crackling, sustained energy.

<i>Squad</i> Review: Newbies Rinzin Denzongpa, Malvika Raaj Flounder In Dead-On-Arrival Dud

Squad Review: Newbies Rinzin Denzongpa, Malvika Raaj Flounder In Dead-On-Arrival Dud

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 12, 2021

Squad Review: Designed to showcase Danny Denzongpa's son and Anita Raaj's niece, all that the film manages to do is leave the hopeful duo high and dry because it just doesn't get off the ground.

Special Ops 1.5 Review: Vinay Pathak (reprising his Abbas Sheikh role), Aftab Shivdasani (playing a RAW spy and happily married man) and Aadil Khan (as the principal antagonist) deliver solid performances.

Red Notice Review: Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds' Film Promises The World, Delivers Little

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 12, 2021

Red Notice Review: The most expensive film ever to stream on Netflix, the action-adventure comedy is racy, even diverting in parts, but all things factored in, it never rises above its surface glitz and gloss.

<i>Meenakshi Sundareshwar</i> Review: A Strange Film, Starring Sanya Malhotra And Abhimanyu Dassani

Meenakshi Sundareshwar Review: A Strange Film, Starring Sanya Malhotra And Abhimanyu Dassani

Saibal Chatterjee | Saturday November 06, 2021

Meenakshi Sundareshwar Review: Abhimanyu Dassani conveys the gawkiness of a man with limited social skills. Sanya Malhotra exudes enough charm and controlled vivacity not be swamped by the occasional verbosity around her.

Sooryavanshi Review: Is Akshay Kumar's Film What The Doctor Ordered For Post-Pandemic Bollywood? Almost

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 05, 2021

Sooryavanshi Review: Akshay's gait is stunt in itself: a cross between a model in the middle of a catwalk and a superhero about to take flight. Katrina Kaif pulls off a Tip tip barsa paani rejig with aplomb.
