Lee Gates—as the host of the television show Money Monster—is known to pick hot stocks on Wall Street. During a live broadcast, investor Kyle Budwell storms on to the set and takes Gates hostage, telling him that he lost everything on one of his tips. Gates has to figure out a way to bring the situation under control. With a plot that isn’t gripping enough, we say give this one a miss.

This film is inspired by incidents and facts surrounding former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin’s life. Known to be one of the most controversial sportsmen of India, this drama traces his personal and professional struggles. Hashmi does full justice to his role as the troubled cricketer. While it has drawn mixed reviews, it seems to be impressing viewers.

Cast: Bobby Simha, Nikki Galrani
The film opens on a thrilling note, with the kidnapping of the chief minister and the kidnapper’s initial demands. Though the pace in the early part is a tad slow, the momentum picks up in the latter half. For Simha, it’s yet another role well played. Nikki Galrani is a delight to watch, too. The backstory and a twist to the tale give a new perspective to events gone by. As intriguing in its take as Ko was, the film is a befitting sequel to the earlier version.
