    ★★★½

    This was a movie I was not looking forward to as it's not my kind of movie and I wasn't impressed with the trailer nor most of the songs. However to my own surprise, I quite liked it and found it fairly entertaining for most part. It's well acted - especially Alia Bhatt and Amrita Singh and has some genuinely warm and funny moments. On the negative side, Arjun Kapoor's character was rather bland and the story was quite predictable and offered nothing new whatsover. Mast Magan and Chaandaniyaa stood out musically and in the end, I was in a fairly pleasant state - of mind.

    Queen

    ★★★★

    I think the last completely female-centric hindi movie I thoroughly enjoyed was Kahaani. And now thankfully, we have Queen. And we need some more. Kangana Ranaut totally reigns, rules and lords (excuse the puns) over this breezy, real and heartfelt finding-yourself flick with a highly nuanced, extremely believable and completely endearing portrayal of the quirky lovable Rani.

    Shuddh Desi Romance

    ★★★½

    One of three movies I was looking forward to in the second half of the year along with Dhoom 3 and The Lunch Box, Shuddh Desi Romance surely delivers! Beautifully filmed across Jaipur and generously sprinkled with some great lines, this ballsy film flows breezily through most of its two hour run-time and for a change, even the songs feel perfectly placed. Parineeti is terrific (as you’d expect) in her different-than-usual turn, Sushant Singh Rajput nails the confused doofus to…

    OMG: Oh My God!

    ★★★★

    In a year that has shown us some truly different films, OMG still stands out as being an out-of -the-box satire on religion and Godmen in a country obsessed with them. Wonderfully performed by Paresh Rawal and aided by a controlled Akshay Kumar, OMG is a witty and topical film that's breezy and entertaining for most part besides making some valid points, albeit in a slightly juvenile and tacky matter. Must watch, by God!
