  1. A feel-good flick about a serial killer who just wants what's best for her daughter. Broad and not too spicy, the London-set Indian rom-com is a crowd-pleaser.
  2. 60
    A kind of Ealing Comedy throwback that is arguably her best film since Beckham.

    May be a busy trifle, but it has its good-natured charms and agreeable gross-outs.

    With jokes that routinely miss the mark and cringeworthy slapstick, this black comedy farce shouldn't work. Somehow, though, it does.
  5. While her latest, It's a Wonderful Afterlife, is affectionate and energetic, its comic premise seems too silly, and at times, too tedious, to hope for much cross-cultural appeal, despite a fine, committed cast.

    It's a Wonderful Afterlife is a movie to make Frank Capra roll over in his grave from indigestion.
  7. 30
    Every gag is smothered by the prevailing tone of labored zaniness and generic, plucky "mischief music" alerting discerning viewers to abandon all hope of laughter.
