Director: Sanjay Gupta
Cast: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Irrfan Khan, Chandan Roy Sanyal
Criminal lawyer Anuradha Verma’s (Rai) life comes to a standstill when her daughter Sanaya goes missing suddenly. The kidnapper then threatens her with dire consequences if Verma does not defend Miyaaz Shaikh (Sanyal), who is convicted of rape and the murder of a young woman. She reaches out to her friend, Yohan, a suspended cop for help. Sadly, the story line of this thriller is too predictable, and performances aren’t worth writing home about.

The Walk is based on the life of French high-wire artiste Philippe Petit (Gordon-Levitt), who shot to fame with his daredevil walk across the Twin Towers on August 7, 1974. The film throws light on his younger years, his obsession to carry out the ‘coup’, his training under Papa Rudy (Kingsley) and how he finds a few accomplices. Shot in 3D, the film is quite an experience, unless you have vertigo. The film is a fine balance of fact and fiction. – TI
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Victor Garber
We have seen films on the lawlessness of drug cartels along the US-Mexico border plenty of times. Even so Sicario manages to score. Here, an idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer (Blunt) has been hired for a black-op mission. Matt Graver (Brolin) is her new boss. Macer is later introduced to his partner Alejandro (del Toro), whose nightmares eventually take the plot forward. The casting is top-notch. Blunt shines in
her performance. And Roger Deakins’ cinematography
is worth a watch.
