Judgementall Hai Kya Prakash Kovelamudi Rajkummar Rao, Kangana Ranaut, Jimmy Sheirgill, Amyra Dastur 4/5We first see her upside down, while also right side up. When we meet Kangana Ranaut in Judgementall Hai Kya, we see her feet mid-air, upside-down. They happen to be surrounded by framed pictures of Ranaut in outlandish, overdone costumes: as Pamela Anderson in the red Baywatch swimsuit, or wearing Angelina Jolie’s distinctive Maleficent horns. She’s doing yoga, a headstand against a wall-ful of photos she regularly gets taken, then photoshopped — much like Govinda used to put up pictures as a cop and a lawyer in Raja Babu.Ranaut plays Bobby Batliwala, a half-Punjabi half-Parsi girl who grew up with the trauma of her parents death, and has since taken to folding paper boats and birds out of bad news, or, more specifically, grisly newspaper reports about domestic violence. She’s an impassioned dubbing artist who gets … [Read more...] about Judgementall Hai Kya movie review: Kangana Ranaut shines on like a crazy diamond in this sharp satire

Mary Poppins ReturnsDirector - Rob MarshallCast - Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Meryl StreepRating - 3/5 A few months ago, IndieWire critic David Ehrlich wrote a piece titled ‘The New Wave of Nicecore: How the Dark Age of Donald Trump Is Inspiring Movies to Choose Kindness Over Conflict’. The thesis of his observation was that difficult times such as ours will always force people to make difficult choices. Sometimes, the best form of resistance is to embody the very essence of what the other side detests, and in the case of the films Ehrlich had listed - Paddington 2, Hearts Beat Loud - the movies had made the choice for us. They’d weaponised decency in an increasingly hateful world.This was in July, before Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade, before Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma and before Mary Poppins Returns - all of which easily fit the bill.Watch our review:Released more than 50 years … [Read more...] about Mary Poppins Returns movie review: A spoonful of Emily Blunt makes the mediocrity go down
'The whole point of this idiotic movie hinges on whether Aayush Sharma who wants to act can act. Unless a singular dazed expression qualifies as talent, not by a long shot,' says Sukanya Verma. The whole point of LoveYatri is Salman Khan has a brother-in-law who wants to act. And if 'Bhai' can do the needful for out-of-work actors and aspiring star kids, he surely won't ignore his brother-in-law. The superstar's generosity and Aayush Sharma's good fortune may have brought about LoveYatri's existence but it doesn't translate into a credible movie.Set in Vadodara, LoveYatri begins with the mandatory 'Kem Cho' lines and culture overkill in an overdone production design that cannot tell between a house and emporium. As the jarring tone gathers momentum we are next treated to Aayush's timeworn Bollywood star son entry. Healthy hair growth? Check. Six-pack physique? Check. Dance demo? Check. Aayush Sharma plays a chap named Susu, which is perhaps what the movie should have changed its name … [Read more...] about review: A lousy movie by any name is still a lousy movie
