An Action Hero Review: Ayushmann Khurrana And Jaideep Ahlawat Lend The Film Power

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday December 02, 2022

An Action Hero Review: The film bustles with coiled energy every time Jaideep Ahlawat is on the screen as a toughie responding to a rough, ready and rustic notion of justice and self-worth.

<i>Freddy</i> Review: Kartik Aaryan's Psychological Thriller Is A Downhill Ride

Freddy Review: Kartik Aaryan's Psychological Thriller Is A Downhill Ride

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday December 02, 2022

Freddy Review: Kartik Aaryan strives to make the character work - his game efforts do not bear much fruit...Alaya, too, has to stretch herself to snapping point.

<i>Qala</i> Review: Period Drama Rides On Impressive Turns By Triptii Dimri And Swastika Mukherjee

Qala Review: Period Drama Rides On Impressive Turns By Triptii Dimri And Swastika Mukherjee

Saibal Chatterjee | Thursday December 01, 2022

Qala Review: The film also gives debutant Babil Khan the space to deliver a poignant act as a gifted but ill-fated singer proud of his talent.

<i>Amar Colony</i> Review: A Hypnotic Film That Is Firm In A Deliberate Rhythm

Amar Colony Review: A Hypnotic Film That Is Firm In A Deliberate Rhythm

Saibal Chatterjee | Saturday November 26, 2022

<i>Dharavi</i> Bank Review: Suniel Shetty's Web Debut Does Not Deliver Real Thrills

Dharavi Bank Review: Suniel Shetty's Web Debut Does Not Deliver Real Thrills

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 25, 2022

Dharavi Bank Review: The veteran actor's screen presence is undeniably strong but the Tamil accent that he is saddled with is not only affected but also disorienting.

Wonder Women Review: Strikingly Crafted And Disarmingly Simple

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 18, 2022

Wonder Women Review: At once breezy and insightful, it thrives on its restraint and the control it brings to bear upon its well-spaced dramatic eruptions.

<i>Monica, O My Darling</i> Review: Wildly Entertaining Neo-Noir Comic Thriller

Monica, O My Darling Review: Wildly Entertaining Neo-Noir Comic Thriller

Saibal Chatterjee | Saturday November 12, 2022

Monica, O My Darling Review: Rajkummar Rao is never off the boil. Huma Qureshi fleshes out Monica in all her splendour. Radhika Apte takes to the role of a chatty policewoman.

<i>Uunchai</i> Review: Long-Winded Motivational Speech Top-Lined By Amitabh Bachchan

Uunchai Review: Long-Winded Motivational Speech Top-Lined By Amitabh Bachchan

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 11, 2022

Uunchai Review: Like Mount Everest, which can be spotted in the distance in several frames, the peak that the film seeks remains elusive.

<i>Wakanda Forever</i> Review: Does Nearly Everything A Sequel Is Expected To

Wakanda Forever Review: Does Nearly Everything A Sequel Is Expected To

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 11, 2022

Wakanda Forever Review: The huge void left by Chadwick Boseman is obviously impossible to fill and it imparts to the Wakanda story a quality that separates it from its predecessor as well as most other superhero films.

Breathe Season 2 Review: Abhishek Bachchan Does All He Can To Give The Show The Impetus It Needs

Saibal Chatterjee | Wednesday November 09, 2022

Breathe Season 2 Review: What lies beneath peeps out once in a while but does not get the sort of attention that might have lent the series the potency it lacks.

Mili Review: Janhvi Kapoor's Film Keeps The Audience Glued To The Screen

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 04, 2022

Mili Review: It has its moments and a pivotal performance that demonstrates that Janhvi Kapoor is an actress who has the chops to carry an entire film on her shoulders.

<i>Double XL</i> Review: Huma Qureshi And Sonakshi Sinha's Film Translates Into More Than Just Double Trouble

Double XL Review: Huma Qureshi And Sonakshi Sinha's Film Translates Into More Than Just Double Trouble

Saibal Chatterjee | Friday November 04, 2022

Double XL Review: The film is a female-led dramedy that addresses the issue of body image and its repercussions but somehow seems to believe that men deserve a lot of play.

<i>Thank God</i> Review: Ajay Devgn And Sidharth Malhotra Are Saddled With Rough-Hewn Roles

Thank God Review: Ajay Devgn And Sidharth Malhotra Are Saddled With Rough-Hewn Roles

Saibal Chatterjee | Wednesday October 26, 2022

Thank God Review: The film is more laughable than funny. Its runtime is no more than two hours. Even at that length the film feels way too long.

<i>Ram Setu</i> Review: Akshay Kumar's Film Is About A Floating Stone But Has No Clue How To Stay Afloat

Ram Setu Review: Akshay Kumar's Film Is About A Floating Stone But Has No Clue How To Stay Afloat

Saibal Chatterjee | Tuesday October 25, 2022

Experts are huddled in a floating laboratory aboard a ship out at sea and terms such as carbon dating, sonar imaging and global warming are bandied about. But forget science, this isn't even proper, passable fiction.
