3/5 38% Second Act (2018) Perhaps the film is a parable about how difficult having it all can be, especially for women. It does make a very pertinent point.‐ Filmfare

3/5 29% The Accidental Prime Minister (2019) The big problem with the film is that it makes out Sanjaya Baru to be some kind of a superhero...‐ Filmfare

3/5 67% Uri (2019) The patriotic fervour behind the project can't be denied and better detailing definitely would have added another layer to the film. ‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 43% Simmba (2018) If Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the director who made Ranveer into an actor having a cupboard full of awards, Rohit Shetty is the person who will be credited with turning him into a massy hero. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 36% Zero (2018) Shah Rukh Khan is experimenting with each film and must be admired for his zeal to attempt something out of the ordinary and not playing it safe. He has given it all to the film and makes you believe in Bauaa's madness.‐ Filmfare

4/5 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) We have become used to live action adaptations of comic books but this film makes a case for giving animation a chance once more. Let's hope other filmmakers can keep the ball rolling...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 79% Ben is Back (2018) The film tells you that drugs take a toll on your mind and body in ways you wouldn't even dream of. That parents remain unaware of what their wards are going through in most cases. ‐ Filmfare

3/5 64% Aquaman (2018) The film's real heroes are the SFX wizards and the production design team. They have really surpassed themselves creating fantastic underwater realms and making them teem with even more fantastical creatures.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 17% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Instead of giving us a bloodbath, we are given an atmospheric piece and this toning down of horror doesn't work in the film's favour.‐ Filmfare

3/5 26% Mortal Engines (2018) Instead of following one story arc, it takes up several, and that proves to be the film's undoing in the long run.‐ Filmfare

3/5 44% Kedarnath (2018) Kedarnath dazzles you with its scenic imagery and it's fresh pairing. But it's also a case of missed chances.‐ Filmfare

3/5 83% Creed II (2018) The film is slickly shot. And the fight scenes are nicely choreographed. You feel the pain of the boxers as they slug it out.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 75% 2.0 (2018) Shankar's influences may have been Western but he remains quintessentially Indian. His films may dazzle you through SFX but remain quite humane at heart. ‐ Filmfare

4/5 89% A Private War (2018) Rosamund Pike has given the performance of a lifetime in the film.‐ Filmfare

3/5 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) It's as if the film is a big premise for some thundering climax that we will see in the next film. But it's all so haphazardly done that the viewer tends to lose interest in what's happening on screen...‐ Filmfare

3/5 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) All these disturbances decidedly took a toll on the finished product. All-in-all, Rami Malek's superlative performance keeps you riveted throughout...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 80% Boy Erased (2018) The film is well written and directed and makes you angry about the way young men and women are getting fleeced by people who run such programs.‐ Filmfare

3/5 57% Pihu (2018) Parents, who are genetically inclined to worry over their wards will surely have nightmares watching the film. Go watch the film for a story that totally differs from the usual escapist fare.‐ Filmfare

3/5 58% The Grinch (2018) The film is primarily aimed at children but adults too won't suffer much watching it. Hope and a little sugar does go a long way, as they say.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 25% Thugs of Hindostan (2018) Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub's character of Shanichar was totally not needed. Katrina Kaif has two songs and a couple of scenes and even Fatima Sana Shaikh is reduced to being a gymnast here.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 No Score Yet Air Strike (2018) There is no consistency in both theme and treatment. It feels like the director wanted to put every patriotic movie trope that he could think of in one film and exploit them all. The result is a mishmash...‐ Filmfare

2/5 No Score Yet Dassehra (2018) Angry cop movies need an emotional core. They at least need a coherent plot. And need to be products of their time.‐ Filmfare

3/5 47% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) It's an SFX driven film and the character effects are imaginatively done to say the least. However, the film suffers when it comes to the plot and the story.‐ Filmfare

2.5/5 37% Hunter Killer (2018) Watch the film if you like underwater action as some of the scenes are really immersive, otherwise the film has nothing new to offer. Gerard Butler fans would be disappointed for sure.‐ Filmfare

2/5 0% Namaste England (2018) Both Parineeti and Arjun are in need of a hit and to that end they try hard to spice up the proceedings. However, their heroic efforts aren't enough to salvage the disjointed story and screenplay.‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 100% Andhadhun (2018) Watch Andhadhun for it's zig zag storyline and spot on acting by the entire cast. It's one of those mysteries which you'll like to go back to despite knowing the ending.‐ Filmfare

3/5 28% Venom (2018) Venom is a mixed bag. While the CGI and action scenes are great, the acting and story is unfocused. Let's hope things brighten up in the forthcoming sequels...‐ Filmfare

3.5/5 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) All-in-all, the film comes across as a family entertainer - something which the adults can enjoy with their kids -- and has all the hallmarks of the beginning of a profitable franchise for Amblin.‐ Filmfare

3/5 14% Batti Gul Meter Chalu (2018) All-in-all, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a film which has its heart in the right place. Better editing and a shortening of length by twenty minutes would have made the film more impactful.‐ Filmfare

2/5 32% The Predator (2018) The original had us glued to our sears with tension but here the drama doesn't induce any goosebumps. Also, the film is choppily edited and hence the narration looks disjointed.‐ Filmfare
