Bharat is Exhausting and Pointless, There's a Lot to Cheer for in X-Men Dark Phoenix
A major Bollywood and a Hollywood film released today, making it a happy long weekend for movie-goers. Read the reviews of Bharat and Dark Phoenix, as well as other news in our wrap for the day.

Salman Khan has followed through with the tradition of granting an Eid gift to his fans this year as well with the grand release of Bharat. The film released with much fanfare but was met with moderate reviews. Though that doesn't mar the excitement of dedicated Salman Khan fans, who keep the cash registers ringing, the film has nothing particularly insightful or meaningful to say about either the protagonist's or the country's journey spanning nearly seven decades.

Another much-awaited film that released today, much to the delight of X-Men fans, is Dark Phoenix, with Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner as the central character. After writing many successful X-Men films, Simon Kinberg has been put behind the megaphone, and he has delivered in true X-Men style, with huge fireballs and totally engrossing whirlwinds.

Read on for more from our reviews of these two big ticket releases and entertainment highlights of the day.

In Bharat, Salman Khan plays the titular hero whom we follow from the age of eight until a little after his 70th birthday. The film, which is an official adaptation of the Korean hit Ode to my Father, musters none of the heft that it aspires for. It is unmistakably boring. It's also excruciatingly long at close to three hours. The script has an episodic feel to it, and Bharat's life unfolds like a highlights reel.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix's drab storyline is supplemented with exhilarating action scenes and fluid transitions. It holds the audience's attention despite repetitive sequences and very over the top shape shifting aliens.
