Now Running - Movie Reviews

  • Dobaara - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Remake of the Hollywood film Oculus, Dobaara is so tiresome, you are actually glad whenever the evil presence shows up and begin rooting for it. It's not horror, but horrendous.

  • Dear Maya - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Dear Maya does have some sweet moments but the film vacillates from interesting to ghastly so often you wonder if this movie was made by a committee. Wait for the movie to show up on cable.

  • Thodi Thodi Si Manmaaniyan - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    The film is so hammy, you never want to see a 'rockstar band contest' film theme any more. It's not just the story that is terrible, but the acting that comes with such a tale. Every person in the film is 'acting' and it drives you to exhaustion.

  • Sargoshiyan - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Sargoshiyan is shot in the beautiful Kashmir, but since the filmmakers want to say so much, everything seems to be crammed, and loud... unlike the meaning of the title which means 'whispers'.

  • Hindi Medium - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Hindi Medium starts out on a right note but the need to teach you a lesson is pushed and pushed in your face until you are weary. But Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar in 'branded' clothes and blingy accessories will make you smile.

  • Meri Pyaari Bindu - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Meri Pyaari Bindu is just about okay. If you wish to escape the summer heat outside or are seeking help in falling asleep, this film is a great option. However, you'll come away loving Parineeti Chopra's performance.

  • Sarkar 3 - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Sarkar 3 fails on many levels. The film is crammed to the gills with characters and motives that go nowhere. Amitabh Bachchan is earnest but even he cannot prevent the poorly scripted and horribly hammed work from turning into a train wreck.

  • Mantostaan - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Mantostaan brings to screen four stories of the celebrated writer Sadaat Hasan Manto and mutilate every single one of them. The execution of each story is sensationalized and turned sleazy. Such a pitiful waste of a good idea.

  • Blue Mountains - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Blue Mountains shows us everything that is wrong with making movies for young adults. There is no finesse in handling the subject and poor research shows up like a glaring sore thumb on the screen.

  • Mirza Juuliet - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Mirza Juuliet is a predictable tale that is a waste of your time and money. Though the heroine's bubbly personality seems to offer many possibilities, but her cursing and her wide-eyed stupidity gets annoying real quickly.

  • Mukti Bhawan - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    'Mukti Bhawan' is brilliant, funny, life affirming tale about death, which is supported by a superb script and a flawless cast. Watch it!

  • Naam Shabana - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Naam Shabana is a spinoff backstory of one of the characters from the successful film 'Baby,' the story is a tad too obvious, but the action sequences redeem the film.
