Farhan Akhtar has been electrifying throughout the film and he has been the major highlight of the film. Ajrun Rampal looked hot as usual and he carried the film on his shoulders. Purab Kohli’s character has nothing much interesting to reveal and Shraddha Kapoor has been emotional and she had no scope to be energetic. All the other actors have been decent in their roles and delivered out their best. The story of the film has nothing new and interesting to reveal. The screenplay has been completely lose and not well written. The dialogues too looked written without interest. The music and the background score have been ok and the cinematography has been decent. The production values looked grand enough and the director fails to turn out Rock On 2 interesting and engaging.
Rock On 2 is a film that can be given a huge skip as the film offers nothing and ends tragic. A band that makes no sound.
Right from the first frame, Begum Jaan misses the clarity throughout. The film has some realistic and stunning episodes that surprise the audience and it is Vidya Balan who tries hard to save the film but could not. The first half has some engaging episodes which make the film passable. The performances by the lead cast sure makes lot of difference. On the whole the first half of Begum Jaan is slightly decent but not up to the mark.The second half which is quite crucial for such films fails miserably in all the available ways. The film has some interesting plot but it is the screenplay and the narration which makes Begum Jaan fall flat. Vidya Balan’s stupendous and fearless performance has been utterly wasted throughout. The pre-climax episodes kill the film completely and a decent climax makes no difference. On the whole the second half of Begum Jaan is a huge failure in all the available ways.
Naam Shabana has an interesting plot but most of the things seem to be forced for Shabana and the penned character.

The songs have been completely speed breakers and they deviated the film. On the whole the first half of Naam Shabana looks decent with some interesting drama.

Phillauri has an interesting story line and it has been well executed in parts. The movie turns quite interesting at times however it is the slow narration which spoils the feel throughout. The first half looks decent and it has some interesting episodes to get entertained. However a huge dip during the pre-interval episodes spoils the mood and on the whole the first half of Phillauri has been quite comfortable to be watched.After a decent first half, the second half fails to make that impact across the audience. The uninteresting narration and the unwanted episodes spoil the film’s feel. They deviate the major plot of the film and irritate the audience. It is Anushka Sharma who shines throughout the film and the visuals look extremely impressive. The climax has been decent and on the whole the second half of Phillauri fails to live up the expectations.
Trapped starts on an engaging and entertaining note with a cute love story and funny conversations between Shaurya and Noorie.

The gripping narration is sure the major highlight though the film has enough flaws that can be ignored purely because of the performances and the tight screenplay. On the whole the first half of Trapped has been decent and interesting.The second half of Trapped strikes hard with its content and it with the performance of Rajkumar Rao completely.

The entire first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania has been racy and runs on entertainment which is filled with humour and sensible elements. The songs have been shot extremely well and are the major highlights of the movie. The emotional episodes too take the major leap at the right time and the interval episodes make the film gripping. On the whole the first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a treat to watch.The second half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania too takes the same wave for sometime but the major plot gets deviated after time passes. However the movie returns back soon and the entertainment takes the major show of the film. The performances by the lead actors and emotional episodes during the pre-climax and the climax makes Badrinath Ki Dulhania a winner at the box-office.
The first half of the film has been badly penned and executed. It has nothing new to offer and the poor screenplay makes the film flat right from the first frame. Even the characters have not been well framed and it is the pre-interval twist that makes the film interesting. However things change instantly and the songs have not been well shot. The action stunts performed by Vidyut Jammwal are the only good things that happened for the film.The second half of the movie too has nothing much interesting to narrate. It is the lean concept and bad execution that kills the film and its flavor. With many flaws throughout the second half, Commando 2 fails to impress the audience. In the second half, the background score has been apt. The climax episodes have been decently shot however the film fails to make the audience sit engaging.
