Priyadarshan's new film lives up to its name.

The Avengers is an absolute blast.
April 20, 2012
Review: Vicky Donor is a pleasant surprise
The running theme of Vicky Donor is acceptance, and embracing things without making too much fuss.
Review: Fantasy meets song-and-dance in Mirror Mirror
Like all other Tarsem Singh films, this one's a visual treat too.
Review: Hate Story is a hate crime against the sex-starved
Publicised purely on the strength of its 'erotic' content and scandalously adult themes, Hate Story delivers very little actual heat.

Review: Battleship just doesn't hit you
The film, along with the alien invasion, makes no sense at all.
Review: Bittoo Boss is a mostly amateurish effort
Supavitra Babul's directorial debut tries far too hard to be the next Band Baaja Baaraat.

The film redefines the level of stupid comedy in films.
April 05, 2012
Review: Titanic in 3D is a tad understated
The first two hours barely reflect any 3D and the concluding one hour is unfairly mingy on technology that plays up its re-release.

Review: Lovely is a family entertainer
The first half of the film is breezy but the second half is overloaded with sentiment and emotion.

The film is an utterly delightful and fresh take on the classic fairy tale -- Snow White.
Review: Wrath Of The Titans is painful and utterly joyless
To most viewers, Wrath of the Titans will appear lousy and painful.

Unless stale stories, bad acting and bungled possibilities capture your fancy, this film is much too sluggish, simplistic and boring to bother.
March 23, 2012
Review: The Hunger Games is fabulously entertaining
The film is about a barbaric reality show out of its vulnerable contestants among whom only one gets to walk out free.

The problem lies in Saif Ali Khan characterisation as he fails to convincingly play a secret agent.
March 16, 2012
Review: This Means War fails to impress

Review: John Carter is engrossing
The filmis not half as bad as most such movies usually tend to be.
Review: Vidya Balan rocks in Kahaani
The clever twists and convincing acting from all the characters make the film worth a watch. It is indeed Sujoy Ghosh's best work so far.

Review: Char Din Ki Chandni lacks the LOL moment
Preeti Arora feels that Char Din Ki Chandni is one giant mishmash of garish sets, guns, pistols and very unfunny moments
March 02, 2012
Review: The Iron Lady works because of Meryl Streep
The Iron Lady is much too lethargic to create the complexity of Margaret Thatcher's supremacy or match the aura of Meryl Streep's ambitions, writes Sukanya Verma.

The only redeeming quality about the film is the complete lack of pretensions.

February 24, 2012
Review: Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya is a sweet love story
Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya reminds you of Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin and Jab We Met.
Review: Moneyball is a winner
Aided by a sharply-penned character sketch, Brad pitt strips himself of all traces of a commercial star and becomes Billy Beane.

Ever since its debut last year at the Cannes Film Festival, The Artist has been showered with superlatives and it's easy to understand why.
Review: My Week With Marilyn is fascinating
Michelle Williams is the star of the film.
Review: Jodi Breakers is seriously flawed
The film could have been so much more.
February 17, 2012
Review: Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance is a waste
The film is half-baked and unfulfilling.

The film is well written and catches the viewers off-guard.

Review: Vettai is no classic, but it is good fun
Lingusamy is one director who has the commercial formula down pat. And his latest, UTV's Vettai, is certainly among the most appealing mainstream fare he has produced so far. The story is simple. Two brothers, Thirumurthy (played by R Madhavan) and Guru (played by Arya) are thick as thieves. Only, Thirumurthy is pretty much a wimp and needs his younger brother to fight all his battles, from quarrelling during a kite-flying expedition during childhood right up to adulthood.
Review: Bodyguard is strictly a one-time watch
Bodyguard has seen two remakes in Tamil and Hindi after the Malayalam original and all of them have been successful. The third remake in Telugu, starring Venkatesh and Trisha, directed by Gopichand Malineni has been adapted considerably to suit the Telugu audience though it is quite similar to the Hindi version.

Review: The Darkest Hour fails to make an impact
If it had allowed itself greater scope, the film might have been more endurable
Review: Players is lacklustre and unimaginative
The film is more Race than The Italian Job.
