ON THE BACKDROP OF THRILL, ‘KHAALI PEELI’ GIVES YOU ENOUGH MASALA

DESPITE GOOD EFFORTS, ‘HALAHAL’ REMAINS A SURFACE LEVEL THRILLER

Rating: 3/5 Director Randeep Jha’s film starts off at an intriguing note, but gets plain and too routine on the way Halahal opens with a crime chase sequence in dark in the raw and rustic…

‘LONDON CONFIDENTIAL’ IS PREDICTABLE AND FALLS SHORT OF REALISM

Rating: 3/5 Director Kanwal Sethi attempts a wholesome thriller with layers in the plot, but fails in the direction The story does make you think of larger conspiracies at work on an international level. If…

‘RAAT AKELI HAI’ SHOULD HAVE BEEN MULTI-DIMENSIONAL FOR BETTER APPEAL

Rating: 3.5/5 Honey Trehan’s crime investigation film is like two clubbed episodes of Crime Patrol (not in a demeaning way) done a little better The trailer was sufficiently intriguing. So is the film. But not…

‘CHOKED’ FALLS SHORT OF BEING AN INTELLIGENT TAKE ON A NATIONAL PHENOMENON

Rating: 3.5/5 Director Anurag Kashyap signs the film with his style with a fresh take, but he could have given a bigger takeaway Probably the first Indian film on Demonetization. Choked keeps this much hyped,…

‘MRS. SERIAL KILLER’ WILL KILL YOU OF BOREDOM

Rating: 2/5 If Shirish Kunder has to make films like these, he better looks for alternate career options One more case where despite the trailer seeming to be sufficiently promising, the film lets its makers…
