Those Who Wish Me Dead movie review: This Angelina Jolie-starrer is a capable action-thriller that is entertaining and well-acted but is also admittedly a bit garden-variety. If you are looking for something fresh or profound, there are other options.
Oslo movie review: In what it sets out to achieve, this Andrew Scott and Ruth Wilson-starrer succeeds for the most part. It is not a great political film. It is, however, an outstanding human drama.
Malaysia to Amnesia review: For a film that depends majorly on lie, deceit and adultery for humour, Malaysia to Amnesia is depressingly unwitty.
Ek Mini Katha review: Debutant director Karthik Rapolu and screenwriter Merlapaka Gandhi squander away a relevant and compelling subject in Ek Mini Katha.
Dithee movie review: Kishore Kadam’s portrayal of Ramji, who manages to arrive at a state of acceptance and compassion, is at the heart of the film.
Army of the Dead movie review: Given the pandemic that is raging outside, and we are the ‘zombies’ that are sequestered, the Zack Snyder film is imitating real on reel.
Kala review: No question that Kala is a carnival of violence. But, look a little closer, and it offers more than just a bloody duel. It may even give you something worthwhile to think about.
Sardar Ka Grandson movie review: Arjun Kapoor and Neena Gupta’s ‘dadi-pota’ love story is let down by its hackneyed and dull manner despite having its heart in the right place.
The Woman in the Window review: The Amy Adams, Julianne Moore starrer wastes the promise offered by its many interesting characters and stretches its twists far beyond the point of tension.
Cinema Bandi movie review: Ganapathi and Veerababu set out to make a movie within their village. And what follows is a generous supply of humour deeply rooted in reality.
Oxygen movie review: This Melanie Laurent starrer is a blisteringly fast-paced and entertaining thriller that plays with genre conventions to keep the viewer on their toes.
Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai movie review: Salman Khan’s Eid offering makes you question if he is still ‘the most wanted bhai’.
Nizhal movie review: Debutant director Appu N. Bhattathiri has picked a narrative style that is low on impact. His film, starring Nayanthara and Kunchacko Boban, is high on promise and low on delivery.
Nayattu movie review: This film is as much a thriller as it is the indictment of the failure of the public to be reasonable.
The Disciple sneaks up on you with its truth just as Court did. But that’s Tamhane’s signature. The film is a delicately woven macramé offering, built knot-by-knot, scene-by-scene.
Without Remorse movie review: It is a good thing that the film is a star vehicle for Michael B Jordan, as he gets plenty of screen time. His character is not particularly well-written, but he makes it more compelling than it has any right to be.
One movie review: Despite its several follies, Mammootty's One is a pleasant movie to watch. It feels good for a change when a powerful person uses his power to help the weak and fix problems of the poor with a single swing of his pen.
Mortal Kombat movie review: It is not a flawless victory, by any stretch of imagination, but Mortal Kombat more than delivers on its promise of being a faithful, entertaining movie with plenty of callbacks and winks to hardcore fans.
Ajeeb Daastaans review: The best film comes from Neeraj Ghaywan, one of the most exciting young voices working in Bollywood today, and Kayoze Irani.
The Father review: What do you do with the abiding love and the constant guilt of abandoning a life that brought you into life? It's one of the hardest places to be.
Aarkkariyam movie review: The film presents lives in disarray, looking for moorings and closure, in the most natural way in a most unnatural year where we all were forced to live in isolation.
The Power movie review: Rose Williams is absolutely first-rate as a young woman breaking apart under immense strain and yet finding her inner strength to battle an all-too-human evil in the end.
Karnan, which is streaming on Amazon Prime Video, needs to be experienced emotionally and visually. It is an approximation of generations of sufferings of people, who have been subjected to unspeakable atrocities owing to where they belong in the caste hierarchy.
The Mauritanian movie review: The Mauritanian is a grim reminder, at a time when the US is long past its Bush-Obama binary, that the Guantanamo facility still stands despite promises to shut it.
Vakeel Saab review: Director Venu Sriram and Pawan Kalyan also honour the main subject and the message of the original film, which says ‘no means no’.
