3.5/5 97% Knives Out (2019) The film does falter a bit towards the second half but that's because Rian Johnson wanted to employ every known trope of the detective novel...You're hooked till the very end, nevertheless, thanks to the nostalgia and humour... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 66% The Good Liar (2019) Watch the film for the acting masterclass provided by Mirren and McKellen, who effortlessly slide into their roles and spar with each other like master fencers, making it look all so easy. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 76% Hotel Mumbai (2019) The human interest drama is personified in the form of Armie Hammer's and Nazanin Boniadi's characters. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Pagalpanti (2019) Keep it short is the golden rule of comedy but Anees seems to have forgotten it as the film goes on and on. At close to three hours, it's simply too long. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 78% Frozen II (2019) All-in-all, this feel-good film has some spectacular visuals, an environmental message, a couple of good songs and a family-oriented storyline -- what more can one ask for, really? - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 50% 21 Bridges (2019) Director Brian Kirk has made an old-fashioned, no-nonsense cop drama. In fact, take away the cell phones and this could be a Dirty Harry film for all you know. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Motichoor Chaknachoor (2019) The pace suffers, especially in the second half and the proceedings look stretched. The writing dips and soars and isn't consistent. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) Kirsten does try to be as quirky as possible as can be but her character isn't fleshed out. - Filmfare EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Marjaavaan (2019) The film reads like a list of the worst of '80s clichés. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 80% Bala (2019) Ayushmann has gotten under the skin of his complex character with aplomb. The angst, the insecurity felt by him is almost palpable. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 47% Last Christmas (2019) The saccharine-sweet script is buoyed by credible performances. Emma Thompson, who has contributed to both the story and the screenplay, is the picture of over-caring motherhood. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 71% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Terminator: Dark Fate is the perfect fan vehicle for those who grew up idolising the James Cameron directed films. It's a nice enough reboot to reignite our interest in the franchise. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 43% The Addams Family (2019) This bland film needed more wit and macabre. Watch it just to reacquaint yourself with the beloved characters you've grown up watching. Otherwise, avoid. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 60% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) The production and costume design is world-class and so is the CGI recreation of a bygone era. The Chicago fair lights up like a fairytale castle when the light comes on, showing us a glimpse of the awe people present then must have felt. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 17% Ujda Chaman (2019) Overall, while the film does raise some important issues, it suffers from faulty execution. It comes across as a missed opportunity at best... - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 40% Housefull 4 (2019) All-in-all, watch the film if you like watching leave-your-brains-behind kind of comedy. It's three hours of silliness served without pretence. Go without expectations and you'll come out happy. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 33% Made In China (2019) Though the film does make use of double entendres, it doesn't offer cheap shots. The dialogue is genuinely witty and brings a smile to your face. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 13% Laal Kaptaan (2019) Superb production values, a nice background score, and [it] doesn't disappoint in the acting department as well. Of only the narrative flowed at a faster pace, we would have had a cracker of a film indeed. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 84% Downton Abbey (2019) It's a comedy of manners that brings forth the best of British humour and acting talent. It sums up the challenges and anxieties of that bygone era from British history which saw a change in the British class system... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Director Joachim Rønning gets some parts right and some parts wonderfully wrong. Maybe what he needed was another fairy tale instead of stretching this one to its limits and making it sag in the process... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Zombieland: Double Tap serves up a platter of good clean fun once more. It has plenty for first comers to enjoy and fans of the franchise to go nuts over. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 24% The Goldfinch (2019) Director John Crowley's choice of a non-linear narrative hasn't worked well in the film's favour. There are so many strands running parallel to each other that the viewer has a hard time playing catch-up. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 33% Prassthanam (2019) All-in-all, better attention to details and towards editing would have added to the film's dramatic impact. In its current form, it feels like an unfinished product at best... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 45% The Zoya Factor (2019) This well-written and well-acted film is a paisa vasool rom-com. It'll certainly make you laugh at yourself and just may help you get rid of a superstition or two... - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) A lone fighter seeking revenge -- there isn't exactly anything new in the plot. What's new is that for the first time in the history of the Rambo franchise, someone has tried to humanise the character - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 50% Dream Girl (2019) A well written and directed film, this was Raaj Shaandilyaa's first directorial venture and he sure has had a promising start. Both he and writer Nirmaan D. Singh should be lauded for their efforts. - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 62% It Chapter Two (2019) At close to three hours, it's too long and self-indulgent and doesn't scare you much. It's the performances and emotional core which keeps you hooked despite the flaws... - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 58% Chhichhore (2019) All-in-all, Chhichhore is a well-acted comedy providing plenty of laughs with its one-liners and talks about an important issue as well. What more can one ask for, really? - Filmfare EDIT

2.5/5 42% 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) What the film needed was an emotional core but you don't develop any sort of a connect with the characters. - Filmfare EDIT

3.5/5 83% Crawl (2019) Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper dive deep into their role to come up with realistic performances. They don't come across as mere props in a horror movie but real flesh and blood characters. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 36% Batla House (2019) Since it's a John Abraham actioner, there is more to the film than just the courtroom drama...All-in-all, the film does try to portray how the police is pressured from all sides while dealing with high profile cases. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Jabariya Jodi (2019) While Jabariya Jodi is saying all the right things, it falters in the execution. Better attention to detail would really have made a wealth of difference for the film. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Isabela Moner has played the lead role with just the right amount of innocence as well as wisdom peeping out from Dora's forever positive character. - Filmfare EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Khandaani Shafakhana (2019) Where the film stumbles majorly is in the screenplay and editing. There is a lack of coherency in both the departments that kind of drags the film down. - Filmfare EDIT
