Movie Review: Super 30

In a pivotal scene in Vikas Bahl’s “Super 30”, the protagonist, a teacher, tells his wards that they’re losing focus after they fail to solve a problem he sets out for them. “You got distracted,” he tells them. The solution was staring them in the face, he says, but they chose to look elsewhere. That is the story of “Super 30” as well.

Movie Review: Article 15

In Anubhav Sinha’s “Article 15”, a privileged police officer finds himself caught in a quagmire of caste hierarchy – where life and death are steered by surnames.

Movie Review: Kabir Singh

It is difficult to watch “Kabir Singh” as a standalone film if you’ve watched “Arjun Reddy.” Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s new film is a scene-by-scene remake of his 2017 Telugu-language blockbuster, and much like his protagonist, its flaws are obvious to everyone but himself.

Movie Review: Game Over

In Ashwin Saravanan’s “Game Over”, the demons that lurk within the mind of the protagonist are as lethal as the ones outside her door. Thankfully, this Tamil-Telugu bilingual film, dubbed and released in Hindi, makes short work of slaying them with its runtime of 102 minutes.

Movie Review: Bharat

If you thought a 53-year-old Salman Khan was past his prime and nearing retirement, “Bharat” is here to tell you otherwise. The film, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, wants you to believe in a future where even at 70, Bollywood's favorite all-conquering hero will still pull off stunts and vanquish the bad guys better than anyone else.

Movie Review: India’s Most Wanted

In Rajkumar Gupta’s “India’s Most Wanted” a ragtag bunch of officers embarks on an unlikely mission – to nab the man they call “India’s Osama”, a dangerous villain holed up across the border. The film appears to be based on the capture of Yasin Bhatkal, who ran a militant group called the Indian Mujahideen that was thought to be responsible for several bomb blasts in India.

Movie Review: PM Narendra Modi

There are faults in Omung Kumar’s “PM Narendra Modi.” Timing is not one of them. The film debuted in theatres a day after Modi pulled off one of India’s biggest electoral victories, keeping the BJP in power for a second consecutive term. The win is Modi’s to savor, but the film is not. It’s glorification via middling hagiography.

Q&A: Film-maker Raj Kumar Gupta on 'India's Most Wanted'

Raj Kumar Gupta’s latest film, “India’s Most Wanted,” is a return to thriller territory after his 2008 debut “Aamir” became a sleeper hit. It also continues in the true-crime vein of his 2010 film “No One Killed Jessica,” about the notorious murder of model-bartender Jessica Lal in Delhi in 1999. He spoke to Reuters about how he retains the authenticity of true stories while making fictional films, and why he is drawn to real-life stories.
