Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson
Cruise yet again proves why the Mission Impossible series still garners so much attention. Starting off on a bang, you see agent Hunt (Cruise) clinging off an escape plane with fellow IMF agents Brandt (Renner) and Benji (Pegg) trying to get him to safety. It sets the tone for what follows. A clever plot which sees a criminal organisation called the Syndicate try to start a global war, supporting cast, and the arrival of an MI6 agent (Ferguson) make this one a must-watch. —Team Indulge’
Director: Karan Anshuman | Cast: Riteish Deshmukh, Pulkit Samrat
Critic-turned-filmmaker Anshuman tells the story of two suicide bombers in his debut film. And he chooses the genre of comedy to drive home his point about religious wars. The film chronicles the journey of these terrorists (Deshmukh and Samrat) who are apparently on a mission to change the world and restore peace with guns and grenades.
Catch the movie for Deshmukh’s comic timing and a
different take on terrorism. —T I
Director: Nishikant Kamat
Cast: Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Tabu, Rajat Kapoor
Vijay Salgaonkar (Devgn) is a devoted family man, living with his wife (Saran) and two daughters in Goa. All hell breaks loose when Sam, son of a top cop Meera Deshmukh (Tabu) enters their lives and later goes mysteriously missing. The story, a remake of the Malayalam hit of the same name, then has the police chasing the Salgaonkars relentlessly to come out clean in the case. The undying fight of a common man, pressure on the cops to crack the case, and an unexpected climax could explain why the movie is gathering steam.
