'Dumb and Dumber To' review: Film is overdependent on old gags

As many as six writers are credited with putting Dumb and Dumber To on the screen, and still there's no mistaking that stench of desperation and creative exhaustion that the film so badly reeks of. Sure I found myself laughing intermittently while watching this sequel to Peter and Bobby Farrelly's much loved 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber. But that's mostly out of a sense of loyalty and respect for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels who sportingly embrace the film's ultra-lowbrow humor and throw themselves into whatever ridiculous, disgusting scenario the Farrellys have plotted for them.

'Happy Ending' review: A film that wants to be many things all at once

Happy Ending, directed by Go Goa Gone's Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, is a neatly packaged piece of fluff pretending to be smarter than it actually is. This is cotton candy trying to pass off as caviar. A predictable romantic comedy disguised as a cheeky comment on the predictable nature of romantic comedies. Get it?

In this week's episode of 'Now Showing', Rajeev Masand reviews three movies 'Kill Dil', 'Boyhood' and 'Garm Hava'.

'Garm Hava' review: It's a slice of our history that we can't ignore

MS Sathyu's 'Garm Hava' remains a potent and evocative study of the ramifications of Partition on the lives of ordinary, innocent people. Relevant even today, 41 years after it first released in 1973, the film, now digitally restored, has been re-released theatrically this weekend at cinemas across the country.

'Boyhood' review: It's an emotionally affecting film with a big beating heart

Life, as they say, is in the little details. Scrawling graffiti on the wall, poring over a lingerie catalogue, standing up to the bully in the school bathroom, going camping with dad, drinking beer for the first time. You get the drift. 'Boyhood', directed by Richard Linklater, is all about the drift. This is a unique, terrific, intuitive movie about growing up; a coming-of-age film with a relaxed naturalism that you've literally never seen before.

08:41 PM, Nov 14, 2014
'Kill Dil' review: It's not an unwatchable film

'Kill Dil', directed by Shaad Ali, starts off promisingly despite its hackneyed plot. The film stars Ranveer Singh as Dev, and Ali Zafar as Tutu; they're a pair of hardened shooters who work for Bhaiyaji, a grizzled don played by Govinda. These trigger-happy killers banter relentlessly, even while pumping bullets into a terrified target, and it's their hilarious, irreverent, and often crude one-liners that are the best thing about this film.

'Nightcrawler' review: The film works best as a slick suspenseful thriller

There's a creepy, spine-chilling intensity to Jake Gyllenhaal's performance in 'Nightcrawler' that's hard to shake off even hours after you've watched the film. Literally transforming himself physically to look bug-eyed, pale, and wiry thin Gyllenhaal becomes Louis Bloom, an awkward but ambitious drifter with no moral compass to speak of.

'Big Hero 6' review: You'll be chuckling throughout, and 95 minutes will fly by

It's virtually impossible to resist the charm of 'Big Hero 6', the new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, at whose center is the touching relationship between a young boy and an oversized inflatable robot.

'Interstellar' review: A film that demands not just to be seen, but experienced

There is something to admire in virtually every frame of Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'. This is a film of soaring ambition, intimate and epic in equal measure; a bold cosmic adventure with plenty wide-eye moments. But it's also overlong, and densely plotted with concepts of space, time and gravity that are occasionally incomprehensible or make little sense.

'The Shaukeens' review: A film not worth the price of a ticket

'The Shaukeens', directed by Tere Bin Laden's Abhishek Sharma and written by Tigmanshu Dhulia, is really two films for the price of one. But sadly neither is worth the price of a ticket.

Watch: Rajeev Masand reviews 'Super Nani', 'Gone Girl'

In this week's episode of 'Now Showing', Rajeev Masand reviews two movies 'Super Nani' and 'Gone Girl'.

'Super Nani' review: Its earnestness will appeal anyone who likes to be spoon-fed moral science lessons

If I had a swig of Scotch for each time someone tells Rekha that she belongs in the kitchen, I'd be very drunk watching Super Nani.

'Gone Girl' review: A gripping, handsomely mounted film

It's hard to think of a director better suited to bring Gillian Flynn's deliciously twisty bestseller to the screen than David Fincher. Having gravitated consistently towards deeply cynical stories, he has explored the more unsettling elements of human nature with a cold and clinical eye, taking us on fascinating journeys to the dark side in such moody, stylish thrillers as 'Seven', 'Fight Club' and 'Zodiac'.

'Happy New Year' review: If indulgences were trimmed, this might have been a more enjoyable film

Logic is sacrificed at the altar of convenience in this script, and an overall feeling of been-there-seen-that hangs over the film.

'What If' review: It's a pleasing watch with many charming moments

Twenty-five years since writer Nora Ephron and director Rob Reiner got us to ponder over that inevitable question - Can men and women ever just be friends without sex getting in the way? - comes What If. This enjoyable although far-from-groundbreaking romantic comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan treads such similar ground it feels like a modern update to that enduring gem. It might as well have been titled When Harry Potter Met Sally.

'The Judge' review: It's a simple story crammed with too many subplots and distractions

'The Judge', produced by and starring Robert Downey Jr, is the kind of bloated film that might have benefited from a few judicious rewrites. It's a simple enough story crammed with too many subplots and distractions that water down the drama at its core.

10:35 PM, Oct 17, 2014
'Sex Tape' review: Overlong and unnecessary, the film will give you a headache

Jason Segal and Cameron Diaz who made for a charming double act in Bad Teacher (which Kasdan directed) can't quite make this flaccid script work.

'Sonali Cable' review: The film has got its moments, but they're few and far between

Leaping across rooftops (think Spider-man, but without the web-slinging abilities) to fix snapped wires and connections, linking the neighborhood through a maze of criss-crossing overhead cables, Sonali Tandel (Rhea Chakraborty), the protagonist of Sonali Cable, is a hard-working, self-made entrepreneur whose local internet operation powers half of Worli village. But she's pushed against the wall when a large corporate threatens to quash her little business as it ruthlessly expands its own broadband footprint across the city.
