The all-new 'Himmatwala' has many of the same problems that plagued the earlier film, and a few new ones of its own. 'GI Joe: Retaliation' feels way longer than its running time. It's an exercise in futility; a film that has no business existing in the first place. ...

There's an interesting premise at the heart of debutant director Kapil Sharma's 'I, Me Aur Main', which tells the coming of age story of a 35-year-old. But despite giving us a believable protagonist, Sharma and writer Devika Bhagat fast run out of interesting ideas to keep us hooked. ...

It's not often that you go into a movie knowing exactly what to expect, but 'The Attacks of 26/11' is that rare exception. The plot and the end of this movie are no secret because the 2008 terrorist attacks on Mumbai, and the way the horror unfolded on the night of November 26, is still fresh in public memory. ...

Cast: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston Director: Nicolas Winding Refn Ryan Gosling shines as a nameless auto mechanic and Hollywood stunt driver who uses his skills behind the wheel to moonlight as a getaway guy for criminals in the moody, existential thriller 'Drive'. Clients get five minutes only, no more no less, for them to do their dirty work and hop back inside to evade the cops. Then Gosling...

Cast: Vinay Pathak, Ria Sen, Jagrat Desai, Sasha Goradia Director: Deepa Sahi 'Tere Mere Phere' is a loud and exaggerated comedy whose opening scene sets the mood and the tone for the roughly ninety minutes that follow. A man and woman seated beside each other on a flight get into a squabble over hogging a common armrest. It leads to something of a riot in the cabin when other passengers...

Cast: Jimmy Shergill, Randeep Hooda and Mahie Gill Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia In a nod to the Guru Dutt classic from which it derives its title, director Tigmanshu Dhulia's 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster' explores the premise of a married woman's isolation in a sprawling estate, and the unlikely relationship she forms with a devoted male help. Sadly that's where the comparisons must end. For where 'Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam' was the...

Cast: John Abraham and Genelia D'Souza Director: Nishikant Kamath John Abraham shows off his abs of steel playing a fearless cop committed to wiping out the drug mafia in director Nishikant Kamat's Force. Judged strictly by action-movie standards, this remake of the Tamil hit 'Kaakha Kaakha' delivers the goods. After all there are some slickly edited hand-to-hand fight sequences, a few breathless chases, and a little too much blood spill....

The plot swings into action when happily married Cal (Steve Carell), discovers that his wife Emily (Julianne Moore) has cheated on him with a colleague, and wants a divorce. Moping about in a bar,...

Cast: Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Jessica Chastain, Hunter McCracken Director: Terrence Malick 'The Tree Of Life' is a hugely ambitious film. It polarizes audiences, calling for endless discussions and debate on what it's trying to say through its relentless visual ideas. This Palme D'Or winner is a modern mindbender. Writer-director Terrence Malick makes 'The Tree Of Life' a deeply personal film, dipping into his own childhood, but all the while...

Cast: Hank Azaria, Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Neil Patrick Harris Director: Raja Gosnell Likely to appeal exclusively to the 'Under 8' demographic - and yet harmless enough not to offend parents who will no doubt accompany their kids - 'The Smurfs' is a formulaic, fish-out-of-water adventure featuring the little blue stars of that popular 80s cartoon series. The movie opens in the Smurfs' village, a mystical little hamlet where a...
