'The Expendables 3' review: With big names, the film is one noisy bore

The lazy plot limps into motion after Stallone's Barney Ross and the old gang breaks Doc out of an armored train in The Expendables 3's opening set piece.

'Mardaani' review: Reasonably short and minus songs, the film is consistently watchable

As movie cops go, Mardaani's Shivani Shivaji Roy, played by Rani Mukerji, feels closer in spirit to Aamir Khan's straight-talking Ajay Rathod from Sarfarosh over larger-than-life supermen Chulbul Pandey or Bajirao Singham. This mostly gritty thriller directed by Pradeep Sarkar opens nicely and coasts along smoothly until it threatens to come undone in its final act.

'Singham Returns' review: The predictable story tires you out eventually

There isn't one quiet moment in Rohit Shetty's 'Singham Returns'. This sequel is an orgy of relentless action, shrill dialoguebaazi, and eardrum-shattering background music. And yet, buried somewhere under all that noise is a well-meaning - although misguided - story about the need for corruption-cleansing in the system.

'The Hundred-Foot Journey' review: This is comfort food for those who like their movies all warm and fuzzy

The first five minutes or so of 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' are so clunky you'd be forgiven for slumping in your seat despondently, writing off the film as another one of those clueless Hollywood productions determined to reinforce the same old 'exotic India' clichés.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' review: The film feels fresh and zany, impossibly hard to resist

The film is packed with nifty special effects, and the 3D justifies itself with an impressive depth of field.

'Entertainment' review: The humour isn't just slapstick , it's also repetitive and lazy

Anyone who's ever got a bad review tends to believe that movie critics don't want to enjoy a film. That they go into a movie thinking of new and different ways to shred it to bits. That's not true I can assure you, and I've been doing this job for over 15 years. Watching bad films is exhausting, and writing about them even more so. Movie critics - just like everyone else - want to have a good time at the movies.

'Lucy' review: It's a royal mess that one cannot make sense of

Luc Besson, the director of such films as La Femme Nikita, Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element, knows a thing or two about creating iconic female action heroes. His latest, Lucy, is another stab at a high-concept action movie with a tough chick at its centre.

'22 Jump Street' review: The movie is wildly entertaining, hilarious and cleverly written

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill return as a pair of unlikely, bumbling cops in 22 Jump Street, one of those rare comedy sequels that succeeds in delivering even more laughs than its winning original.

'Kick' review: It has a mission to reinforce that Salman may be a bad boy but has a heart of gold

The pursuit of logic in a Salman film is a rather fruitless exercise which he admits himself saying, "Mere baare mein itna mat sochna. Dil mein aata hoon, samajh mein nahin."

10:30 PM, Jul 25, 2014
'The Grand Budapest Hotel' review: Whimsical, busy, irresistibly charming, an absolute must-watch

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is a roller coaster of screwball comedy, deftly puppeteered by a filmmaker in complete control of his tools.

'Begin Again' review: The film is enjoyable while it lasts but not memorable enough

For John Carney's new film, 'Begin Again', the filmmaker rips off the premise of his own 2006 indie - a pair of unlikely partners drawn together by the promise of making music - and surprisingly, the result is not that bad.

10:45 PM, Jul 18, 2014
'Amit Sahni Ki List' review: Fresh, enjoyable but falls short due to director's conservative thinking

'Amit Sahni Ki List', there's a reason I'm deeply suspicious of Bollywood rom-coms; they tend to start off promisingly but almost always lose direction around the halfway mark. The quirky humor you enjoyed so much vanishes shortly after intermission, only to make way for melodramatic rona dhona.

10:35 PM, Jul 18, 2014
'Pizza' review: This 'pizza' is stale

Both thrills and logic are in short supply in 'Pizza', remake of the 2012 Tamil super-hit about a timid pizza delivery boy and the repercussions of his supposed brush with the supernatural.
