Movies

'Airlift': A salute to an unsung hero

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


The film starts off on a sluggish note, with a fairly slow pace and minimal drama, but picks up post intermission and more than makes up for the dull first half with drama, action, emotion thrown in for good measure.

Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Road Chip' - Entertaining roadless trip

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


It is an adventure story with the usual hyper-frantic, song and dance sequences that will appeal to its young audience.

'Rebellious Flower': A sincere biopic

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


"Rebellious Flower" is a sincere biopic based on the life of the spiritual leader Osho Rajneesh.

'Chhota Bheem...': An exciting escapade for its young audience

'Hate Story 3': Erotic revenge drama encore

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


This apart, there are lots of erotic sex and a couple of lacklustre songs in Mika's voice, thrown in for good measure.

'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' - This Prem backfires

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", Sooraj Barjatya's latest offering, with a promise that "Prem is back", disappoints die-hard romantics. Prem aka Salman Khan may be back in a Rajshri production, but certainly, love isn't.

'Katti Batti' - Convoluted, cliched and confusing

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


The script has a convoluted screenplay riddled with forced humour and glaring plot holes which include underdeveloped characterisations.

'Brothers': Action packed family saga

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


 "Brothers" is a high octane melodramatic action film from the stable of Dharma Productions which uses the fighting ring as the Kurukshetra.

'Masaan': An emotionally engaging tale

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


 "Masaan" is a poignant tale of two young couples, whose lives are intertwined by fate, set against the backdrop of a crematorium on the ghats of the river Ganges in Benares.

'Bajrangi Bhaijaan': Strong message of love, brotherhood

IANS Rating  

User Rating  


What makes this film stand apart among Salman's repertoire is that he plays the saviour Bajrangi Bhaijaan with conviction of a simpleton and wins hearts instantly when he makes up his mind to do no wrong.
