Puzhu movie review: Mammootty’s electrifying portrait of a bigot’s persecution complex eclipses a mishandled climax
Puzhu’s flaws cannot be taken lightly, yet the film is stunning for so many reasons, making Ratheena one of the most significant voices to emerge from Indian cinema in recent years.
Though The Outfit, is cut from the same cloth as Reservoir Dogs, Graham Moore isn’t as skilled as Quentin Tarantino at generating controlled chaos.
Jayeshbhai Jordaar movie review: No ‘jor’ in this male saviour saga that can’t even capitalise on Ranveer Singh’s loveliness
Jayeshbhai Jordaar’s good intentions are lost to a poor comprehension of gender politics, lack of focus, a saviour complex and above all, ineffective storytelling.
Don plays with lofty ideals, yet it rarely engages with nuance and only deals with extremes.
Sarkaru Vaari Paata movie review: Other than signaling return of the old Mahesh Babu, this film has little going for it
Sarkaru Vaari Paata reeks of simplistic snobbery associated with any film naive enough to pretend that it can solve a systemic issue in less than thirty minutes as its hero is strong and handsome.
Makal struggles despite its endearing cast and the enduring charm of Anthikad’s observational, slice-of-life approach to filmmaking.
CBI 5: The Brain movie review — Scrapes through by riding on nostalgia and Mammootty’s towering presence

Saani Kaayidham movie review: Keerthy Suresh, Selvaraghavan excel in this straight-forward revenge drama
Saani Kaayidham is a solid revenge drama that achieves its humble aspirations
Acharya movie review: Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan, Pooja Hegde film is a masterclass in what not to do in a star vehicle
In Acharya, the hero's Naxalism goes only as far as accessorising himself with a red scarf and camouflage. If you are basing a film on the lives of an Adivasi tribe, at least acknowledge their culture, language, and rituals.

Heropanti 2 movie review: Tiger Shroff, Ahmed Khan's new film makes Baaghi 2 look like a modern classic
The problem with Heropanti 2 is not that it belongs to the genre called Tiger Shroff; the problem is that it is more scattered, illogical, and lazy than Shroff’s earlier films.
Runway 34 movie review: Devgn plays Devgn and Bachchan plays Bachchan in a largely bland, briefly suspenseful thriller
What keeps Runway 34 flat despite the arresting in-flight crisis is the failure of the writers to inject tension into Narayan’s investigation or to give the storytelling and characters any depth.
Memory movie review: Martin Campbell’s film is more than just a dispensable Liam Neeson revenge thriller
Memory thrives on remembering and forgetting at once. It’s not great, but maybe it’s something far more valuable: it’s honest.
Jana Gana Mana movie review: Suraj Venjaramoodu rises above a script that lacks cohesion, clarity, depth, finesse and calm

Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal movie review: Samantha, Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi deserved better than a love letter to patriarchy
Vignesh Shivan's Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal thinks it is making a strong case for polyamory. However, the case the film actually makes is for patriarchy and sexism.
Jersey movie review: Shahid Kapoor's cricket drama is emotionally resonant, but thematically complacent
Jersey makes us find great comfort in familiarity. It's honest, but could have also been innovative and intricate.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent movie review: A smart and sassy riff on the Nicolas Cage syndrome
The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent can be described as happily mediocre – but the metaphorical cage of Nicolas Cage elevates its campy genius
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie review: Familiar but fun story of heroes and villains, aimed firmly at kids
Sonic 2 doffs its hat to the MCU so often, that every time Sonic uses one of his rings to open a portal, I half-expect Benedict Wong to step out of it.
Operation Romeo movie review: An engaging cautionary tale about fragile masculinity and moral policing
