The Sequel Disappoints

Reviewed By:Deepti Kanojia Views :196 Ratings:1 One Time Watch

Overall Ratings:

RMH Ratings:

Ab Tak Chappan 2 starts out from where the first one ended. It starts on a promising note but loses its identity in a set of clichés. The only redeeming factor in the film is the flawless Nana Patekar who does justice to his character even though it was...

Overall Ratings:

RMH Ratings:

Dum Laga Ke Haisha comes like  a breath of fresh air on two counts - taking us back to the nostalgic 90s and  bringing us to terms with a pleasantly plump woman as the heroine. The latter move is indeed a commendable one because Yash Raj Films have always...

RMH Ratings:

Roy is a painful watch, probably one of the most boring mainstream films you will ever see. It would be an embarrassment to call this a thriller; it is rudderless and downright drab. The story works up a snail’s pace and the execution is tedious. &nbs...
