'Love Day: Pyar Ka Din': Tedious and uninspiring

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Technically, the film is poorly mounted, in all respects.

'M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story': Chugs along touching right nerve

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


With a run time of 3 hours and 10 minutes, the film is extremely lengthy. The first half of the narrative meanders at a snail's pace with nothing meaningful happening and the second half salvages the film with revelations of Dhoni's personal life.

'Bridget Jones's Baby': A mixed bag of inherent comedy

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


What works for the film is the actors' sincere efforts in portraying their parts. Renee Zellwefer as the 43-year-old Bridget Jones, creates a touching portrait of a middle-aged, single mother. She is funnily clumsy and dramatic, full of angst, loneliness and with an enormous love for her baby.

'The Magnificent Seven': A rehash of an oft-seen plot

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


The script written by Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk is alternately gripping and weak. It offers nothing new in terms of the plot. Nevertheless, it is still reasonably engaging for the first half of the 132 minutes of its run time. The second half gets into the predictable slot of the engaging battle with Bogue's henchmen.

'Banjo': Earnest but cliche ridden

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


"Banjo" could have been a story well told, sans the customary cliches of the lives of slum dwellers, but nevertheless, it has its moments of earnestness and Riteish and the music of the film are certainly among them. You may not love it, but you will definitely not hate this film.

'Robinson Crusoe': Lame and unexciting

IANS Rating

Technically, the anthropomorphized animation is spectacular with all animals faithfully created, looking appealing and truly alive. Also, each frame is visually colourful. But this is all what has been seen before. This one has nothing extraordinary to offer.

'Pink': Amitabh elevates powerful message-based film

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Amitabh Bachchan as Deepak Sehgall, the aged defence lawyer, shines as always, in a restrained, but powerful performance. His histrionics come primarily in the form of his well-modulated baritone, conveying his emotions and of course, from the well-written lines. 

'Freaky Ali': Crime-cum-sports flick brimming with mass appeal

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Overall, "Freaky Ali" inspired by the English film, "Happy Gilmore", entertains with its simplicity and raw Indian appeal.

'Baar Baar Dekho': Gorgeous looking film with a heart

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


"Baar Baar Dekho" is about getting a chance of changing the mistakes in life without making them. But really, I can't think of one thing I'd like to see changed in this film. Except maybe Sarika's prosthetics when she plays dead. Someone overdid the mother's wrinkles.

'A Flying Jatt': A Bonafide Desi Super-Entertainer

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Tiger is a laugh riot in conveying the spellbound bewilderment of an ordinary guy who can suddenly fly. The narrative keeps pace with its sincerely committed hero most of the way, slowing down reverentially for an animation crash-course on Sikh history, as to why and how the adage of Sardarjis losing their equilibrium at the stroke of 12 came about.
