Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti 2 is enjoyable during the climax, when you know it’s about to end

Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ asks if age defines cricketers. The film is almost a sixer

Hurdang creates the world of Mandal student politics but not a convincing one

The film tries to look at the Mandal Commission and caste-based reservation through an upper-caste lens, but offers lazy arguments.

Dil Bechara review: Sushant Singh Rajput’s last outing is touching, but needed better writing

'Dil Bechara' has good performances by Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi, but that doesn't save the film from its scant screenplay.

Bhonsle review: Manoj Bajpayee will win your heart in this film about hate, fear & kindness

Mandir or Masjid? New surveys not needed, just acceptance of truth & move towards reconciliation

That temples were destroyed and mosques built is undisputed history. The past can’t be changed, but we can’t deny the wrongs of the past either before we consider reconciliation.
