HITS
 
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
Our Rating: ★★★ 1/2
 
 
Director Dibakar Banerjee nails it with his latest venture, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role. A classic noir drama that will turn back the time, this film is a must-watch for people who love suspense and intrigue. Plus, the film delivers a promising climax!
 
Margarita With a Straw
Our Rating: ★★★★
 
 
 
Kalki Koechlin shines yet again with another gripping character that stays with you for a long time. Margarita With a Straw is an inspiring tale of an aspiring writer born with cerebral palsy. Follow Laila and explore the path to self-discovery!
 

Dharam Sankat Mein
Our Rating: ★★ 1/2
 
 

Dharam Sankat Mein was a highly anticipated film, given the fact that its primary topic was religion. Yet, the film failed miserably and could not connect to its audiences. Based on the lines of OMG – Oh My God! and PK, this film talks about everything that we’ve already seen and has nothing new to offer. Despite featuring veterans like Paresh Rawal and Naseeruddin Shah, Dharam Sankat Mein did not leave a mark. Watch it for some more insight on religion.
 
Ek Paheli Leela
Our Rating: ★★ 1/2
 
 
 
Even fans of Sunny Leone would have known that Bollywood isn’t the right place for someone like her. Although, Ek Paheli Leela does offer something new in terms of story and plot. The film is a tale of love and incarnation and is based on flashbacks from the past. Apart from that, there’s nothing much that the film can offer.
 
Nanak Shah Fakir
Our Rating: ★★ 1/2
 
 
 
Nanak Shah Fakir follows the life of Sikh Leader Guru Nanak, documenting his work and travails like none other. The film is unique in its own way, with less dialogues and more music. However, the length of the film is a major drawback, along with some unrefined performances. 
 
MISSES
 
Barefoot to Goa
Our Rating: ★★
 
 
 
Barefoot to Goa could have been one of the finest Indie films in recent times. But in spite of having an honest plot, the film fails in execution. Directed by Praveen Morchhale, the film explores the ever-changing face of a parent-child relationship. The slow pace and inferior camerawork adds to the woes.

 
Mr. X
Our Rating: ★★
 
 
 
Only die-hard fans of Emraan Hashmi can actually enjoy this half Mr. India-half Hollow Man revamp that results in Mr. X. Vikram Bhatt’s latest film is his most ambitious project yet, but it hardly impressed anyone. It looks like Hashmi may have to reconsider his acting career, if this continues.
 
NH-8 Road to Nidhivan
Our Rating: ★ 1/2
 
 
 
NH-8 Road to Nidhivan was supposed to be a psychological thriller that will give you the chills of a typical horror film. Unfortunately, the film doesn’t do any justice to that claim. It has an interesting plot, but suffers from poor direction. The performances aren’t top-notch either. The makers have dished out the same old horror formulas, which do not work in today’s day and age, and are not even scary.
 
Jai Ho Democracy
Our Rating: ★ 1/2
 
 
 
Jai Ho Democracy is a satire dealing mainly with corruption, politics and the system. Despite being heavy on the plot side, the film does little to grasp attention. Even with a well-known star cast in the form of Annu Kapoor, Om Puri, Seema Biswas, etc. It does make you laugh occasionally, but some of the scenes are just unbelievable.
 
Let’s see what the month of May has in store of us!
