Puzhu movie review: Puzhu distinguishes itself from other movies that examine the dehumanising effects of the caste system by being completely non-judgemental.
Sarkaru Vaari Paata movie review: The Mahesh Babu starrer talks about the growing menace of rich people defaulting on bank loans, the government-corporate nexus that enables such financial crimes and how the burden inflicted on the banking system by bad loans is shifted to hard-working, law-abiding and docile citizens.
Thar movie review: This is one of those films where the setting is the real hero-- the ‘marusthal’ (desert) stretching as far as the eye can see, crumbling forts, bare trees providing meagre shade, implacable, hard beauty.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness review: It may be the Multiverse of Madness (which it is), but it is above all the Multiverse of Marvel.
Saani Kaayidham movie review: Saani Kaayidham is a no-nonsense revenge drama with non-stop action, meaning an unrestrained flow of savagery.
Memory movie review: The film meanders in the middle, not knowing what to do with its actors, or its story of bad men and vulnerable immigrant girls.
Acharya movie Review: The writing is so poor that even the two actors' massive stardom feels inadequate to lift this movie. It's a snooze fest.
Heropanti 2 review: This film has no plot. It’s basically a series of set pieces featuring Tiger Shroff prancing, romancing, and dancing, when he is not mowing down bunches of baddies.
Runway 34 movie review: Ajay Devgn manages to deliver a somewhat effective pre interval portion despite its inelegant, underlined bits; but the film plummets as the curse of second half hits.
Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal movie review: This film is Vignesh's wishful dream about an average Joe becoming a chick magnet.
The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe The Unheard Tapes movie review: A complete waste of time, Netflix's well-produced but worthless documentary offers no new information about the life of the Hollywood icon.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 movie review: Twice the screaming and the blasting, half the need for any real plot development.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent movie review: But for Nicolas Cage giving it all he has got, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent would collapse under its own pretensions.
Guilty Minds review: What’s most striking about this all-desi, hugely entertaining show is how real it feels despite the dollops of drama inherent in its stories.
Jersey movie review: Shahid Kapoor-Mrunal Thakur-starrer film, an official remake of the 2019 Telugu hit of the same name and by the same director, has all the elements of an inspirational sports drama.
Oh My Dog movie review: This is not just about an abandoned puppy finding love. It is about a band of people, traditionally considered weak who stand up for themselves and stick it to the big guy.
White Hot The Rise and Fall of Abercrombie & Fitch movie review: Netflix's latest documentary expose is as vapid as its subject.
Choose or Die movie review: In the final stretch, for a few minutes or so, Asa Butterfield and Iola Evans’s Netflix horror movie does become what it promised. But it is too little, too late.
KGF Chapter 2 movie review: The trouble with films busy working on their look is that they forget about plotting. KGF 2 swings haphazardly between the past and the present.
Beast movie review: Nelson Dilipkumar could have used this plot set-up to turn in a nail-biting thriller. Instead, he gives us an unapologetic crowd-pleaser.
A Hero movie review: A Hero is a story laid layer upon layer, an outer structure holding up the insides, the whole edifice vulnerable to one false step.
Fantastic Beasts The Secrets of Dumbledore movie review: It’s hard to shake off the knowledge that we are still in the middle of a very long, very successful commercial franchise that has long put behind where it all started.
All the Old Knives movie review: Gratuitous nudity and a confusing plot ruin Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton's Amazon Prime Video spy drama.
Dasvi review: Abhishek Bachchan is a perfect match for the kind of character he is playing. It’s a pity that the material never quite knows whether it is an exaggerated parody or a sharp comedy with realistic overtones.
Drive My Car review: Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s three-hour film, based on a Haruki Murakami’s short story, is a masterful examination of what it is to be human.
