anupama-chopra-review-of-victoria-and-abdul

Victoria & Abdul, directed by Stephen Frears, has moments of sparkling comedy and a magisterial performance by Dame Judi Dench but it’s essentially toothless and bland


chef-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Saif Ali Khan's performance imbues Chef with more depth than the script has. Ultimately, director Raja Krishna Menon's film is too bumpy to leave you satiated.


judwaa-2-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Director David Dhawan's remake of his 1997 blockbuster stars son Varun Dhawan in a double role as conjoined twins who are separated at birth. These characters were problematic even in the 90s and now they seem doubly so.


haseena-parkar-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Shraddha Kapoor's performance as the sister of mafia don Dawood Ibrahim is so inept that it’s hard to take director Apoorva Lakhia's film seriously.


newton-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Starring Rajkummar Rao, this film about an election official trying to do his duty in the jungles of Chhattisgarh is brilliant and devastating.


lucknow-central-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Starring Farhan Akhtar, this film has a predictably schmaltzy story that takes forever to unfold


simran-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Despite Kangana Ranaut’s strenuous work, the narrative of director Hansal Mehta's latest film doesn’t grip you


shubh-mangal-saavdhan-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is about a man who learns he has erectile dysfunction just before his wedding. Director R. S Prasanna and writer Hitesh Kewalya mine this material for humor without being vulgar.


baadshaho-movie-review-anupama-chopra

Directed by Milan Luthria, this film has moments of fun in the first half but becomes like a flat comic book in the second
