Overall, with an overload of patriotic films in the recent past, "Gold" fails to offer anything exciting.
"Satyameva Jayate" which means, "Truth always triumphs", is designed as an action thriller. It is a revenge story, where a son fights the system, and makes it his raison d'etre to restore his father's lost dignity.
Director Anubhav Sinha's thorny, probing drama, "Mulk" traverses hearts as a matter of course.
Adapted from the Belgian film "Everybody's Famous!", an Oscar nominated film in 2001, "Fanney Khan" is the story of a father who goes to various lengths to encourage his daughter to become a star singer.
Visually the film benefits from the fine work of cinematographer Avinash Arun, who bathes the feature and its characters with glossy naturalistic composition.
A film about honour killing, it is aptly an honourable failure, giving us some of what is desirable, but largely leaving much to be desired.
