Director: SS Rajamouli
Cast: Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannah Bhati
As India’s fastest `100 crore film, you don’t need an excuse to check this one out. But throw in a great plot which sees two brothers, Shivudu (Prabhas) who is raised as a commoner and Bhallala Deva (Daggubati) born into royalty, at war for an ancient kingdom, then it really is worth the hype. Stunning visuals and sleek special effects add to the glamour of the fast-paced adventure. And while the acting isn’t poor, it doesn’t match the calibre of the effects. But you’ll certainly be eagerly awaiting the sequel.

Director: Asif Kapadia
Cast: Amy Winehouse
A rather piercing re-telling of the tragic life of singer Amy Winehouse, filmmaker Kapadia uses his trademark documentary technique by telling the entire story through archived footage and audio interviews. In this case interviews with her ex-husband Blake Fielder, parents, Mitch and Janis, among other friends and family. What is most captivating though is when her voice comes roaring back to life, to tell her story through her own music and lyrics. Don’t go looking for the exact and gory details of her life, as this one draws attention to the singer’s
talent despite her turmoil.
