'Fan': Shah Rukh Khan's best in years

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


From the sunny to the sinister, Shah Rukh’s Gaurav Chanana takes us on a roller-coaster ride across a plot which is propelled by pungency. The superstar gets some valuable support from co-actors like Sayani Gupta, Deepika Amin and Yogendra Tikoo whose presence is skillfully woven into the darkly disarming drama of a duel between the dapper star and his distressed disingenuous doppelganger.

'Ki & Ka': Refreshingly fun, endearing

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Writer-director R. Balki's characters are perfectly chiselled with the right amount of emotional overtures, making them convincing and relatable. The plot, set in a hassle-free society, is taut, formulaic and evenly paced with no overtly major dramatic twists. It does not navigate through a cliched path, which is what makes the film questionable, yet refreshingly acceptable.

'Rocky Handsome': Convincing action, low on emotions

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Packed with maniac action sequences, "Rocky Handsome" is a typical dark, moody and coarsely crafted crime drama that is based on the 2010 released Korean film "Man from Nowhere".

'Kapoor & Sons': Joy and woe are woven fine

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


"Kapoor & Sons" is a saga of a dysfunctional family, which makes you laugh and cry with its members, as you become an intrinsic part of their lives. It is a complete family entertainer with a universal appeal.

'Zubaan': An inspiring tale of self-discovery

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


The screenplay with a layered narration, well-etched characters and gripping performances, make "Zubaan" real and stand out. The adept manner in which the back stories are inextricably woven into the main narrative is praiseworthy.

'The Revenant': Brutally mesmerising

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


The film is believable and of course, a lot of this realism comes from DiCaprio's convincing performance. He has put in an astonishingly physical and mental effort to portray Glass. He doesn't say a word for long periods of time and yet spellbinds you throughout some visceral and seriously gruelling ordeals.

'Neerja' - A glorious tribute to the braveheart

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


Nothing in the film appears staged or artificial. It is truly a slice of Neerja's life.

'Fitoor': No 'great' expectations from this adaptation

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


While every actor is enthusiastic about their individual part, they lack the passion and this shows in their performance, which is very poised and theatrical.

'Sanam Teri Kasam': Intense and emotional

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


With a well-written screenplay and powerful performances by the debutant duo in Bollywood, the film tugs at your emotional chords and makes you empathise with Saru and her plight. Their love story is credible and their onscreen chemistry is strong and tangible.

'Ghayal Once Again': High-octane action, drama

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


The film starts off on a tacky note trying to establish the setting of the story and the characters. As the tale progresses, the film finds its focus when four college students stumble upon a murder. And then, the narrative picks up momentum and gallantly strides into the action arena.
