- Indian Review (Madras/Chennai) (print)

- Modern Review (Calcutta/Kolkata) (print)
The Modern Review was a monthly magazine published in Calcutta (Kolkata) since 1907. Founded by Ramananda Chatterjee, it soon emerged as an important forum for the Indian Nationalist intelligentsia. It carried essays on politics, economics, sociology, as well as poems, stories, travelogues and sketches. With a broadly nationalistic outlook, it did not follow the line of any particular political party. This meant that it could act as an all-India forum and that it stood apart from party journals concurrently run by the Indian National Congress, the Communists, the Muslim League, the Khaksar Tehrik Hindu Mahasabha and the Scheduled Castes Federation.
