Age of Ultron
Director: Joss Whedon
Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner
In an effort to end the war, Banner (Ruffalo) and Tony Stark (Downey Jr) spark off a bigger terror, when they unleash the power of Ultron—a narcissistic self-thinking robot. Though confusing to anyone who has not watched the earlier Marvel films, this one beautifully blends action, emotion, fantasy and humour. Plus, there’s eye candy all around with Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Scarlet Witch as part of the crew.
— Team Indulge
Director: Vikram Bhatt ,
Cast: Emran Hashmi, Arunoday Singh, Amyra Dastur
Raghuram Rathod (Hashmi), a taciturn police officer, is forced to kill the chief minister of the state at the bidding of his corrupt police commissioner (Arunoday Singh). But when he gains the power of invisibility, he realises he can use it to better society, by hauling up wayward officials and city-folk. Similar to what Spider Man does in New York, the plot, though familiar, is a decent entertainer. An ambitious attempt at being a sci-fi thriller, it fails in execution but will not disappoint Emran Hashmi fans. —TI
With A Straw
Directors: Shonali Bose, Nilesh Maniyar, Cast: Kalki Koechlin,
Sayani Gupta, Revathi
This is one of those rare Indian films that gives us a social commentary on current times without using red roses and the birds and bees as an analogy. It follows the life of Laila (Koechlin) and her journey of self-discovery, her struggle to accept her bisexual identity, and her anxiety over coming out to her parents. All the while battling cerebral palsy. Bound to leave you amazed at the stunning lead performance, it ticks all the boxes of being a coming-of-age film with a hint of cheekiness and
a dollop of reality.
