Reviews: Bodyguard is not Salman-y enough!
Salman Khan's lastest outing Bodyguard is devoid of fanciful thrills and does not offer anything unique. Bol is superlative with a message for the society
The film takes you in the real world of Pakistan and deals with a serious and sensitive subject.

The film falls into the category of hype over heft. Review: Not A Love Story is made in bad taste
Despite average performances from Mahie Gill and Deepak Dobriyal the treatment of the film amounts to nothing spectacular. Review: Sahi Dhande Galat Bande fails in execution

The film makes The Pink Panther seem like the Godfather of slapstick.

It's impossibly difficult to make a great film about a superhero who uses a country's name as his own. Review: Phhir has predictable suspense
Leave your brains home, and watch this film. Review: Winnie the Pooh is a must watch
The film is a humble reminder of simpler times where every selfless act is rewarded with a giant pot of honey. Review: Aarakshan lacks focus
Director Prakash Jha moves away from the central plot of reservation, perhaps inadvertently Review: Aarakshan doesn't deserve the hype
The film is less about reservations and more about education. Review: Aarakshan is disappointing
Prakash Jha is at his most confused self in presenting Aarakshan to us.

The soundtrack has nothing great to write home. Review: Bubblegum is sweet

Director Terrence Malick's long absences from moviemaking validate the fact that he's been working even when he's not actually working. Review: The Smurfs is cliched and magicless

The characters in the film are not very complex and they lack surprises. Raja Sen reviews Delhi Belly
The film has a tight plot but most of the English in this film seems laboured and unnatural. Review: Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap is uber cool
