    Oh My God (2012)

    Oh My God
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Comedy

    For 'God's sake', you can't afford to miss this one!

    Cocktail (2012)

    Cocktail
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Romance | Comedy

    Yet, despite all its conventionalism and inconsistencies, what still keeps you connected to the movie is its attitude to never take itself too seriously. The film is as much flippant as its protagonists and the scene tone remains subtle even in the most dramatic sequences. The humour is inherent and scenes like Saif's first encounter with Deepika or Dimple Kapadia's artificial respiration to Deepika are hilarious. Thereby after laughing on every formula of any love story, when this cocktail can't do away with the basic emotional ingredients of a love triangle, the film's nonchalant attitude backfires.

    Bol Bachchan (2012)

    Bol Bachchan

    Genre:  Comedy

    For a (pleasant) change, Rohit Shetty doesn't do Golmaal 'his' style. Rather he does Golmaal in its 'original' form and that's what creates a decent difference, making Bol Bachchan fairly entertaining!

    Maximum (2012)

    Maximum
    Audience Ratings: 4.0
     

    Genre:  Crime

    Maximum shows minimum originality thereby making it a plain average attempt.

    Gangs of Wasseypur (2012)

    Gangs of Wasseypur
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Crime

    Even at a runtime of almost three hours, the movie, at no point, seems stretched or monotonous and there isn't a single dull moment. The narrative binds you to an extent that you don't mind watching the impending sequel (another two and a half hours) at a single stretch, since the incomplete first part leaves you on a restless note and asking for more. Unlike Ram Gopal Varma's Raktha Charitra that was split into two parts more for commercial considerations, Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur justifies its need for two episodes since its source material has enough 'meat'. In fact much like a sticky soap opera episode, Kashyup smartly ends the first part on such a note that you hate him for the abrupt and inconclusive end, yet see the promise that the second chapter of the gang-war holds.

    Ferrari Ki Sawaari (2012)

    Ferrari Ki Sawaari
    Audience Ratings: 8.0
     

    Genre:  Comedy

    Ironically, this is a Ferrari that will zoom straight into your heart for its modesty. A beautiful watch!

    Shanghai (2012)

    Rowdy Rathore (2012)

    Verdict: Average

    Jannat 2 (2012)

    Jannat 2
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Thriller

    Overlook a few of its sinful indulgences and Jannat 2 can turn out to be a hell of a ride!

    Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein (2012)

    Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Drama

    In an author-backed role, Sachin Khedekar pulls off the protagonist convincingly, expressing a wide gamut of emotions. Anupam Kher comes into form only in the second half and breathes life into the protagonist and the picture. Atul Parchure as Aditya's friend puts in a decent act.

    Kahaani (2012)

    Kahaani
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Thriller

    Kahaani, undoubtedly, is Sujoy Ghosh's most accomplished works till date as he emerges as a skilful storyteller with the film. If story is what you seek from a film, Kahaani is a must-watch. Aami Shotti Bolchi!

    Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya (2012)

    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Comedy

    The film primarily works thanks to the convincing chemistry and performances by the lead pair.

    Agneepath (2012)

    Agneepath
    Audience Ratings: 0.0
     

    Genre:  Action

    With Bollywood being obsessed with remakes in recent times, Agneepath is an important lesson on how to pay proper tribute to the original. Despite the original being his home production, Karan Johar attempts playing with fire (treading uncharted territory) with Agneepath and emerges victorious. Agneepath has the fire for a lustrous entertainer!
