BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG is sure to win accolades, admiration, respect and esteem, besides emerging as a champ. Reserve the applause for Milkha Singh and the team behind BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG. Give it a standing ovation!

Critic Score: 4.5/5Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama.com
Mohar Basu

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag will have you captivated with its grit and enigma. Made with panache, it’s hard to take your eyes off Farhan Akhtar, who enriches Milkha Singh as a surreal charismatic figure beyond the realms of flesh and blood! This one is so moving and scintillating that such films are a reward to the audiences for bearing through the fiascoes!

Critic Score: 4/5Mohar Basu, Koimoi.com

'BMB' pulsates with the storyteller's sheer passion all the way to the finish line. While you are on-the-run, pause to watch this one.

Madhureeta Mukherjee

Susi Ganesh has attempted to 'Bollywoodize' his first Hindi film (remake of Tamil film Thiruttu Payale). Desperately throwing in Munnis, Sheilas & Jalebi bais - of Kenyan origin. There are twists and (blind) turns, over-dramatized scenes with little shock value that's mostly predictable. The supporting cast and dialogues (sample this: "Ek baar karogi toh galti lagegi, baar baar karogi toh style ban jayega". Oof!) paralyze the feeble screenplay. Kenya is well shot; action junkies may enjoy some fight sequences and the climax saves the day. The songs puncture the pace and the plot doesn't pulsate with the edginess of a thriller.We wish the director had found a shortcut to tell this story of love,(extra-marital) sex and dhoka.

Critic Score: 2.5/5Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times Of India

Rich man's wife takes a roll in the hay with a third party. Said roll-in-hay becomes an instrument of blackmail. Blackmailer and blackmailee take turns in trying to outsmart the other. Turns out that the filmmaker has been the smartest of them all, having managed to make a film like this one, and get it out in theatres for the unsuspecting punter to walk in. Suffice it to say, I wasn't feeling very smart when I left the theatre after two and a half hours of this drivel.

Critic Score: 1/5Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Taran Adarsh

SHORTCUT ROMEO is a well-made, stylish crime story with high-voltage drama as its highpoint. It may not boast of A-listers in its cast, but it has ample entertainment and edge-of-the-seat moments to offer. I suggest, give this one a chance!

Resham Sengar

Just when you thought that Bollywood had (slowly, but steadily) matured in its take on love, director Aanad L Rai quashes our faith with a shockingly outdated love story. Set on the rustic bylanes of Benaras, 'Raanjhanaa' is unimaginatively archaic and extremely convoluted that it gives love a bad name. Pitching an outdated love story that could've (probably) worked in the 90s, is a sure-shot hint at box-office disaster. Take our tip. Skip this one.

Resham Sengar, Zee News
Taran Adarsh

RAANJHANAA encompasses romance and myriad emotions most wonderfully, besides bravura performances and a popular musical score from the maestro. A film that touches the core of your heart. A film that's definitely worthy of a watch. Not to be missed!

Critic Score: 3.5/5Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama.com
Meena Iyer

Raanjhanaa is a love story that has a Shakespearean touch and is mounted on a lavish scale. Set in Benaras, in a sense, the heart of India, the first half in the vibrant city where the Ganges flows, just sweeps you off your feet with its colour and feel. All of a sudden, Raanjhanaa seems like two different films. In the first half, it is an interesting, intense, introspective love story, where you empathise with the characters. In the second half, the love story gets diluted to make way for gobbledygook political ideology that is an irritant. Note: You may not like this film if you cannot digest brooding love stories.

Ankur Arora Murder Case

CBFC Rating: U/A
3.5/5
Subject is not dealt with due degree of seriousness.

50 Critics like this movie.
Shubhra Gupta

The film intends to be part hospital procedural, part courtroom drama, with a dash of chase-and-hunt thriller, all very Robin Cook-ish. The clash between an all-powerful doctor who has lost sight of his primary purpose of saving lives, and the intern who is willing to lose everything in the fight for justice should have made for cracking drama. But Ankur Arora Murder Case never really gets there, suffering from banal script-and story-telling, and amateurish acting.

Critic Score: 2/5Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Mohar Basu

Ankur Arora Murder Case is not an atrocious film, but is gravely disappointing. Wasting actors like Tisca Chopra and Kay Kay Menon along with making a spiced up version of true life incident of a death of a child due to medical negligence, the film is a sure damp squib for me.

Critic Score: 1.5/5Mohar Basu, Koimoi.com
Taran Adarsh

ANKUR ARORA MURDER CASE illustrates and spotlights on the gaffes in the medical profession most persuasively. A heartfelt effort that deserves to be watched!

Karan Anshuman

Fukrey is a smartly directed light comedy of four loafers - Hunny, Choocha, Lali, and Zafar - with modest ambitions. There's a lot to like in Fukrey. It sticks to the subtle and shies away from the tomfoolery and slapstick you've come to expect in films of the genre. However, a few shortcomings keep Fukrey from hitting the bullseye. The crises in the love stories are unconvincing and easily overcome as is the big hurdle in the climax. Fukrey captures a similar spirit, albeit in a very different flavor and the small film experiment about life's trivialities manages to entertain for most part.

Critic Score: 3/5Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror
Ananya Bhattacharya

Fukrey' is one hell of a laughter ride. In this age of cheesy and cheap comedy which the Hindi film industry is now so (in)famous for churning out, this one – ‘Fukrey’ – despite shouting out ‘Going Cheap June 14’, is thankfully not so. The film is packed with neat amounts of laughter-inducing funny moments and one does not have his/her attention wander off for even a fraction of a second. Watch ‘Fukrey’ if you crave for generous dollops of laughter to colour your weekend up… Go cheap! Three and a half stars for Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s handiwork!

Critic Score: 3.5/5Ananya Bhattacharya, Zee News
Mohar Basu

Fukrey was a film that heavily disappointed me! As someone who went loaded with expectations, I did not see any honesty in the shallow plot hurriedly translated into a movie. With shabbily etched out characters and their largely flimsy issues, it is the lack of adequate depth in the story that digs its grave.

Tushar Joshi

The Deols made Yamla Pagla Deewana watchable because we bought their tomfoolery and goofiness that seemed enjoyable and natural. But the second part is laced with so many ridiculous moments, dialogues, sketchy characters and unflattering camera angles that you hope the family has a better hold of the franchise the next time around. Neither funny, nor witty, YPD2 looks dated and feels half-hearted in its attempt to cater to the family audience. They definitely deserved so much more!

Critic Score: 2/5Tushar Joshi, DNA
Mohar Basu

The unconvincing and dragging narrative, though served with judicious dosages of action and humor fails to evoke anything substantial in the audiences. Sunny Deol as the Punjabi version of Rajinikanth is the only satiating element of the film! The antics are indigestibly over the top and fail to keep the audiences engrossed! Any day the prequel is a better version and sadly this film couldn’t retain any good from its last edition. Not Deol'ed out this time!

Critic Score: 2/5Mohar Basu, Koimoi.com
Rajeev Masand

'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2' is overlong and repetitive, and doesn't offer anything particularly original or inventive in terms of comedy. I'm going with two out of five. It's a pity the jokes run out faster than your popcorn does.

You're going to watch YJHD if you haven't already. You're going to watch it for Ranbir dancing to the sprightly Badtameez Dil and you're going to watch it for Deepika in her cutesy glasses. Let's just say if your expectations are in check, you won't be disappointed.

Critic Score: 3/5Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror
Ananya Bhattacharya

Director Ayan Mukerji’s second outing at the Box Office, after 'Wake Up Sid', is light, frothy at the primary level – and delves somewhat into the deeper recesses of human emotions at the secondary level. However, one thing emerges tall – 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' is an extremely pleasant watch. In a nutshell, 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' is no heavy or preachy business. It is meant to be enjoyed and it does its job well. Apart from a few parts where the pace of the film drops badly, Ayan Mukherji’s handiwork is a breezy, enjoyable one.

Critic Score: 3/5Ananya Bhattacharya, Zee News
Rajeev Masand

Too long by at least twenty minutes, this is a watchable film despite its conventional arc. If light-hearted mush is what you're seeking, you're looking in the right place.

Sukanya Verma

Performances -- especially of Rishi and Arjun Kapoor -- are the best thing about Aurangzeb, makes it very engaging. Whether all kids inherit their parents’ moral temperament I do not know but where Bollywood is concerned, its conditioning on filmmakers is undeniable. And going by what the inspired but engaging Aurangzeb has to offer, it’s not such a bad thing.

Critic Score: 3/5Sukanya Verma, Rediff.com
Gayatri Sankar

The dialogues are apt and have the right amount of punch that is required. The film keeps you intrigued until the very end, but the climax does give a fair idea about what would draw the curtains down. Nonetheless, the ensemble cast will lift the credibility of the film even higher with its performance. 'Aurangzeb' is a film worth a watch for all its complexities!

Critic Score: 3/5Gayatri Sankar, Zee News
Taran Adarsh

AURANGZEB has a great premise, but great plots don't, generally, translate into great films. This one's way too lengthy and mediocre [second hour] to leave any kind of an impression whatsoever. Disappointing!

Madhureeta Mukherjee

The subtlety appeals, but we wish there was more drama packed in the second half, with a better climax. Teenagers will probably find a slice of their life in Gippi, and adults might protest to such 14-somethings extreme indulgences in fashion, hot-bods and green-tea diets. Overall, a simple story that stays pre-pubescent and doesn't quite grow into the high-school of stories.

Critic Score: 3/5Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times Of India
Shubhra Gupta

The trouble is not so much with the performers but with what they are asked to do in an idiom borrowed from American teen dramas. This comes off as a mini version of the Karan Johar-directed Student Of The Year, which was itself derivative. It's nice for Gippi to be saying what it does. That fat and frumpy is not bad. That it is quite all right to be who you are, and not anyone else. That winning is not everything. But it would have been nicer if it had been said in a newer, fresher way.

Critic Score: 2/5Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Saibal Chatterjee

For all its attempts to look and feel different from the run-of-the-mill, Gippi is pretty obviously not the ultimate film about adolescence. But there is no denying that it is a warm-hearted film, if nothing else, with some nice touches that might strike an emotional chord. The crucial turning points in the plot are rather unimaginatively handled, often pushing an otherwise commendable effort into all-encompassing shallowness. Gippi is a feel-good drama and everything, even an overdose of clumsy preaching, is fair when the principal pursuit is happiness.

It’s crazy, but cool!

Saibal Chatterjee

Go Goa Gone is full of surprises: it is as if Delhi Belly on acid has strayed into Zombieland. It is anything but a mindless zombie film. It is visceral yet humorous; over the top yet perfectly controlled. Go Goa Gone is only mildly scary, but it is often very, very funny. What works is its refusal to pull back and away from its chosen course. It goes all the way down the path to the bitter end, even at the risk of turning far too jokey to be effective. Pretty much the same could be said of the film as a whole – it’s crazy but cool. It gives you what you least expect and in ways that you least anticipate. That is a rare attribute for a Hindi film.

Critic Score: 3/5Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV
Taran Adarsh

GO GOA GONE is experimental since something like this has never been attempted earlier. But it's fun, witty, amusing and yes, thoroughly entertaining. The youngistaan is sure to love this mad, mad, mad ride!

Critic Score: 3.5/5Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama.com
Mohar Basu

Go Goa Gone is a must one time watch. Stomping off a naïve horror concept in India, borrowing from a hit Hollywood formula, it is an unabashedly crazy film with Vir Das and Kunal Khemu delivering super performances. Relegated into the premise, the film is an exuberantly hilarious laughter riot that shouldn’t be missed. Honestly, I haven’t laughed this much in a film since Delhi Belly. Take a break from all the morose things in life and catch this one, believe me there can't be any regrets! Had the laugh riot the film induces in the first half persisted obstinately, the film would easily have been invincible!
