Gulmohar Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Manoj Bajpayee, Sharmila Tagore | Film Companion
5:10Gulmohar starring Manoj Bajpayee, Sharmila Tagore, and Amol Palekar begins and ends with a family gathering. There are lines in the film about the fast-changing landscape of Delhi where old bungalows are giving way to skyscrapers. But if strong enough, familial bonds outlast houses. This film gives us the comfort of that. To know more about the movie, Listen to the full movie review of Gulmohar by Anupama Chopra.

The Fabelmans Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Steven Spielberg | Film Companion
5:32Steven Spielberg’s new film The Fabelmans starring Gabriel LaBelle, Michelle Williams and Paul Dano is a many splendored thing. For starters, it is the origin myth of the director himself. The film depicts events from Spielberg’s life from 1952 to 1965. To know more about the film, listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
5:02The film Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat is about two couples – one in London and the other in Dalhousie. Both are played by Alaya F & Karan Mehta. There are differences in class, religion, identity but the barriers they face are the same – bigotry, patriarchy and hate so strong that there is no reasoning with it. Not surprisingly, tragedy strikes but Anurag, always an advocate of revolution, ends on a fiery note with DJ Mohabbat declaring: Mohabbat se hi toh kranti aayegi. Listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Pathaan Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham | Film Companion
4:50With Pathaan, the emperor gets his groove back. From his electrifying introduction scene to the end sequence, in which co-writer and director Siddharth Anand tips his hat to three decades of stardom Shah Rukh commands the frame. Pathaan stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Ashutosh Rana and Dimple Kapadia. To know more about the film, listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Mission Majnu Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
5:57Mission Majnu starring Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna begins with the declaration that it is inspired by true events. If we believe the events in this film, we have to conclude that Pakistan, in the mid-seventies, was run by men who could all fit under one label - Dumb and Dumber. To know more about the film, listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Chhatriwali Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
4:56In Chhatriwali, starring Rakul Preet Singh, Sumeet Vyas, Satish Kaushik, Dolly Ahluwalia, and Rajesh Tailang, writers Sanchit Gupta and Priyadarshee Srivastava are so keen to make their Let’s-talk-about-sex messaging land that the plot slowly veers into the absurd. To know more about the film, listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
4:36Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam starring Mammootty, Ramya Pandian & Ashokan, is Tamil for an afternoon nap. It’s the title of the new film by Lijo Jose Pellissery, one of Malayalam cinema’s most inventive and invigorating filmmakers– his earlier films include Jallikattu, India’s entry for the Oscars in 2019. Lijo is often referred to as the master of chaos. But this film is a departure – it’s quieter and more still. To know more about the film, listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Cirkus Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Ranveer Singh | Film Companion
6:21To the already busy plot in Cirkus, director Rohit Shetty & the writers add half a dozen characters, a superhuman ability for one twin to endure electric currents, which somehow transfers to the other twin even though he lives in another town, love interests who crowd the frame without adding much value and a larger philosophical debate about nature versus nurture. Apart from being an oversized entertainer, Cirkus also wants to advocate for tolerance and inclusivity. It’s a noble thought but the film is a mess. To know more about the movie, listen to the full review by Anupama Chopra.
Avatar: The Way Of Water Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
5:23When a sequel arrives 13 years after the first film, no matter how much of a blockbuster that first film was, the question is: do we still care? James Cameron doesn’t give us a choice. To know more about the movie, here's the full review by Anupama Chopra.
