  • Happy New Year
    When a film opens with the leading man mouthing a series of his world-famous dialogues, you can have two reactions. One, grin a knowing grin, and chuckle 'kyonki badi badi picture mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hain'. Two, groan and think aloud couldn't they think of one new dialogue because, you know, it is a new film, innit? Or is it just Farah Khan, reuniting with her old friend turned foe (via a very public feud fought in the tabloids) turned friend again, reprising her number paying tribute to the 70s Bollywood masala movie, only bigger and more blindingly brighter than ever?

    A film called 'Bang Bang', toplined by Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, declares its intentions even before the first frame : there will be guns, there will be the sexy duo, and EVERYONE will go bang bang. Read full movie review

  • Singham Returns
    But it's made 100 crore! And you gave it just one star! Sure enough, Singham Returns, which your humble critic didn't care for, has rapidly climbed to the Rs 100 crore-plus mark in box office collections, according to its publicists. Before that, it was the execrable Humshakals that breached the barrier. And many such similar ones before these worthies. Read full movie review

    End of Week 1: N.A. cr
    Lifetime: Rs 140.62 cr

  • Kick
    What this lovely word means is 'unbearable', though it can't come remotely close to the tedium that the original describes. Salman Khan's leading lady says it to him. About him. Yes, gasp, addressing the one and the only Sallu Bhai, who appears in his latest In and As avatar in 'Kick'. Read full movie review
    Cast: Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez
    Release date: 25 July 2014

    Opening Weekend: Rs 83.83 cr
    End of Week 1: Rs 164.09 cr
    Lifetime: Rs 231.85 cr

  • Jai Ho
    The usual cautionary warning in the opening credits should have been replaced by this: in the making of this film, no Salman Khan fan was hurt. Because that's all 'Jai Ho', like all Bhai vehicles, aspires to. But even for those that adore the man with agate bracelet, I'd say his new flick is little more than a damp squib.

    Opening Day: Rs 17.75 cr
    Opening Weekend: Rs 60.68 cr
    End of Week 1: Rs 88.78 cr
    Lifetime: Rs 116 cr

  • Ek Villain
    There's one in every love story, says the tagline of 'Ek Villain', and the film strains every sinew to justify it. The three main characters- Guru the loveless orphan grown into a gun-toting goon, Aisha the pretty girl busy ticking off items from a to-do list, and Rakesh the smarting-under-daily- humiliations-working-stiff' ricochet off each other, resulting in a film doused in schmaltzy romance and creepy violence.

    Cast: Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh
    Release date: 27 June 2014
    Opening Day: Rs 16.72 cr
    Opening Weekend: Rs 50.70 cr
    End of Week 1: Rs 77.20 cr
    Lifetime: Rs 105.62 cr

  • Gunday
    Gunday is as generic as its name suggests: even that old phrase luchche-lafangey had more character. In the name of plot, we get a mash-up of many popular blockbusters, several of them belonging to Yashraj, the producers of this one. In the name of acting, we get pumped up beefcake and one number plumped-lip eye candy. Read full movie review
    Cast: Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra

    Opening Day: Rs 16.12 cr
    Opening Weekend: Rs 43.93 cr
    End of Week 1: Rs 63.08 cr
    Lifetime: Rs 78.60 cr

  • Humshakals
    Clearly, Sajid Khan doesn't believe in less being more. In 'Humshakals', he ups his game three-fold. From 'Hum Do Hamara Ek', he goes full tilt for 'Hum Do Hamaare Teen', so we get everything multiplied by three. Read full movie review

  • 2 States
    Pretty Tam Brahm ponnu plus hatta katta Punjabi munda equals to match made in heaven? If you go by 2 States, yes, but getting to it is long and arduous. The film sets out to be a solid, emotionally satisfying rom com, and goes well for a bit but then turns into a too-stretched-out jhagda between the two sets of north-south parents. And the romance gets short shrift. Read full movie review
    Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt

    Opening Day: Rs 12.42 cr
    Opening Weekend: Rs 38.06 cr

  • Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty
    'Holiday', the official remake of the monster Tamil hit 'Thuppaki', gives Akshay Kumar a chance to return to full combat mode. He plays a patriotic soldier willing to stretch a few rules in the line of duty, whether it is wielding sharp shears on a suspect's finger, or shooting bad guys point blank. Till he's going bang bang, he's all right; the moment he gets romancing and joshing, he slides. So does the film. Read full movie review

  • Entertainment
    I love dogs. They are good people. And Akshay Kumar in full throttle has been known to raise a nifty paw or two. Dog and star come together in a flick that promises to entertain us. Read full movie review

  • Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
    'Main toh paida hi hot hui thi', says Ambala's resident 'pataka' Kavya Pratap Singh. 'And slays 'Dilli da munda' Humpty Sharma. The banter between the two is easy, natural, fun. That they will fall for each other is inevitable, because that's the way they have been set up, and the process makes the first half of 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' a breeze. I smiled all the way till the half way point. Read full movie review

  • Ragini MMS - 2
    A film unit goes off to a deserted house in the middle of a forest for a shoot. Because this is a sequel to 'Ragini MMS', we are already primed for what is about to happen: a vengeful spirit will get after the humans, and scare us witless in the process. Read full movie review
