Wogma rating: Catch on TV/online for sure
Quick review: If you can watch a film just for performances, this one is it. Otherwise, it is two ordinary stories that go well enough with a madcap one. The quirky situations and lines bring a few smiles.

Quick review: Why should Hollywood have all the fun? Even India and Pakistan can save the world. Especially since Tiger is alive. The regular action fare – nothing more than you expect but nothing less either.
Wogma rating: Watch for sure, preferably in theatre
Quick review: Alternate lives based on the choices you make, consequences of your actions, helplessness of the conscientious – the film takes on these philosophies in an absorbing, crisp-ish tale of right, wrong, and ... ?
Wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do
