The film is made watchable purely because Vidya Balan makes it so.
Beware Indian men, if you do spot yourself on the big screen while watching Thappad, try not to look away. I know, I didn't.
Despite its flaws, Thappad gets a thumbs up for reminding 'well-meaning' desi families that violence is never okay, even if it is 'just' a slap.
Rani Mukerji's Mardaani 2 does not come with a trigger warning, so please consider this review as one.
What takes centre-stage in Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat, is a romance so incredibly tedious, calling it a love story requires suspension of disbelief.
If you thought Tiger Shroff in War, was the dumbest spy to have ever adorned the big screen, wait till you see Vidyut Jammwal in Commando 3.
Apart from the terrorists, the only brown person who gets decent screen time, is Slumdog Millionaire actor Dev Patel, an Executive Producer on the film.
Bala advocates rising above appearances, but also gently tells you it's okay to wear that wig, or that spanx, if it makes you feel more like yourself.
