  • newKadvi Hawa - Review
    wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online (?) quick review: A quiet film that aims to simmer uneasiness within. But, alternating between showing life in a village and telling a story, Kadvi Hawa manages to pace itself too unevenly to create impact. ...Visit for the full story.

  • Tumhari Sulu - Review
    wogma rating: Catch on TV/online for sure (?) quick review: Strong characters with even stronger performances let down by an awfully ‘meh’ climax. And such a bummer that most of the ‘fun’ moments made it to the trailer. Review Sulu is not a character...Visit for the full story.

  • Qarib Qarib Singlle - Review
    wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online (?) quick review: A mature romance where people are not really trying to change each other. Keeps the smile on too. But, the pace is almost soporific and has potential to disconnect you from the story. ...Visit for the full story.

  • Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana - Review
    wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online (?) quick review: You get a ridiculous romance free with an intense revenge drama. Unfortunately, you leave with an after-taste of the silly rom-com instead of the well-written revenge bits. ...Visit for the full story.

    wogma rating: Watch for sure, preferably in theatre (?) quick review: As a bittersweet slice of life, Ribbon is richly textured with performances, beautifully layered with content, and sprinkled with occasional humor. Review As a bittersweet slice of...Visit for the full story.

  • Ittefaq - Review
    wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for it to come on TV/online (?) quick review: Hurried in its story-telling and a little too relaxed in its execution, Ittefaq makes the biggest mistake a thriller could make - it tells a gripping story instead of showing it. ...Visit for the full story.

  • Tu Hai Mera Sunday - Review
    wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV/online (?) quick review: A cute comment on everyday, urban life. Becomes a little 'out there', every once in a while. But so does everyday life, right? While the philosophising is a tad lame, the romantic bits are adorable. ...Visit for the full story.

  • Bhoomi - Review
    wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?) quick review: Run-of-the-mill revenge drama that tries very hard, but doesn't engage at all. Review Bhoomi is exactly what you expect. An over-dramatic story of a father and daughter who want to...Visit for the full story.

    wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?) quick review: Simran has a perfectly flawed lead character, played almost to perfection by Kangna Ranaut, the film has a close-to-perfect climax too. If only, the plot didn't accelerate to being outland-ish mid-way. ...Visit for the full story.

  • 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.
    - 2 Jun 17, 3:42pm -
  • 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.

  • Mirror Game – Ab Khel Shuru - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Mirror Game is an interesting story, well-executed but everything moves so slow you have to pinch yourself to keep awake. The twist in the story is good, very good perhaps.

  • Sachin: A Billion Dreams - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    They call it a film but it is a documentary of Sachin Tendulkar's life, with all kinds of videos of his personal life, footage of cricket matches, interviews with people connected to the sport and finally Sachin talking to the camera explaining what ...

  • 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.
    - 26 May 17, 10:02am -
  • 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'.

  • Half Girlfriend - Review by Manisha Lakhe

  • 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.
    - 19 May 17, 12:40am -
  • 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.
    - 12 May 17, 2:01pm -
  • 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.
    - 12 May 17, 9:33am -
  • 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.

  • Baahubali: The Conclusion - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Baahubali: The Conclusion gives you the complete joy of watching an epic fantasy film. Watch it on the biggest screen near you. And yes, why Katappa kills Bahubali, the secret is revealed.

  • Noor - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Despite an earnest performance by Sonakshi Sinha Noor fails to make an impact. The movie is so poorly researched it gives journalist a bad name.

  • Maatr - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Maatr is a predictable revenge story that completely ignores the trauma and social stigma that is usually attached to rape victims regardless of their social class. The subject is handled so ham-handedly, you cringe at the mistakes and wish they'd st...

  • Begum Jaan - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Begum Jaan chronicles the life inside a whorehouse set in the middle of the India-Pakistan border. Unfortunately, Vidya Balan who plays the title role cannot save the hopelessly predictable plot. The film is such a terrible, bloated and tastelessly o...

  • Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laddoo Deewana - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Dewana is a never-ending tale of confusion that is so unfunny that it is dumb.

  • 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.
    - 7 Apr 17, 9:59am -
  • 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.
    - 7 Apr 17, 9:55am -
  • 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!
    - 7 Apr 17, 9:53am -
  • 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.
