Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety | Hindi | Feb 23, 2018
Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety movie review: A dreary woman-hate-fest cum unwitting gaymance- Entertainment News, Firstpost. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety recycles the cast, clichés and convictions of both the Pyaar Ka Punchnama films.0.5/5full review
Captain | Malayalam | Feb 16, 2018
Captain movie review: Jayasurya's invested performance is the saving grace of this plodding sports biopic. In Captain, the insufferable use of music – mournful and theatrically celebratory by turns – might have become intolerable if it were not for Jayasurya’s presence.1/5full review
Aiyaary | Hindi | Feb 16, 2018
Aiyaary movie review: Sidharth Malhotra is pretty and Manoj Bajpayee earnest in this blast of hot air- Entertainment News, Firstpost. Pace and bluster cannot compensate for lack of substance in Aiyaary. This wannabe James Bond flick is nothing but a blast of hot air.1/5full review
Aami | Malayalam | Feb 9, 2018
Aami movie review: Manju Warrier holds attention in an often engaging but too often risk-averse biopic. Based on the life of Kamala Das, Aami has a thoughtful, engaging tone but it is too risk-averse to be as captivating as the woman whose story it tells2.5/5full review
Pad Man | Hindi | Feb 9, 2018
Padman movie review: Akshay Kumar is charming in an entertaining but problematic film- Entertainment News, Firstpost. There is so much in Padman that is enjoyable and meaningful. But there's also some needless sexism (about a true mard being one who can provide raksha (protection) to the women in his life) and an exasperating north-Indian-isation of Muruganantham, which you can't get over.2.5/5full review
Rosapoo | Malayalam | Feb 9, 2018
Rosapoo movie review: Biju Menon shows poor judgement in taking this road to nowhere. The best of actors need solid writing on which to rest their talents, and after a while it becomes clear that this ingredient is missing in Rosapoo.0.5/5full review
Hey Jude | Malayalam | Feb 2, 2018
Hey Jude movie review: Nivin Pauly, Trisha Krishnan-starrer has heart and humour but not enough depth. The delicacy with which Hey Jude treads around its central character (played by Nivin Pauly) in its pre-interval portion is one of its many attractions2.5/5full review
Aadhi | Malayalam | Jan 26, 2018
Aadhi movie review: Pranav Mohanlal is a perfect fit for a smashing action flick. Aadhi is one of the most exciting rollercoaster rides ever to emerge from Malayalam cinema3.5/5full review
Street Lights | Malayalam | Jan 26, 2018
Street Lights movie review: Mammootty’s latest is a step up from his recent generic choices. Shamdat Sainudeen's Street Lights is uncharacteristic of Mammootty’s current filmography, dominated by aggressively masculine, star-struck tosh1.5/5full review
Padmaavat | Hindi | Jan 25, 2018
Padmaavat movie review: Bhansali couches regressive, opportunistic messaging in exhausting visual splendour- Entertainment News, Firstpost. Padmaavat is a perfect example of a Hindi film couching its extreme prejudices in grandiloquence and tacky clichés. The film is steeped in unwitting contradictions1/5full review
