The Peanuts Movie
Director: Steve Martino
Cast: Francesca Capaldi, Bill Melendez
In this adventure comedy, the main plot revolves around a new girl at school who has Charlie Brown (Noah Schnapp) gushing. But he does not have the courage to speak to her. While the side plots include a 3D look into Snoopy’s epic adventure in a fantasy world. As a World War I flying ace, the lovable beagle pursues his nemesis, the Red Baron, while also trying to win the heart of a beautiful poodle named Fifi (Kristin Chenoweth). The movie puts a smile on your face, and is a definite feel-good film for kids.

Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein
Director: Manish SrivastavCast: Naseer
uddin Shah, Anand Tiwari, Amit Sial
Manish Srivastav could have scored a good directorial debut had he tried to keep the film uncomplicated. Instead, he packs in all the stereotypical tricks associated with a murder mystery — drug dens, wayward youth, forbidden sex and faltering police. In the film, a drug consignment goes missing, and its dealers are frantically looking for the culprit. Top cop Sanket Pujari (Shah) finds an unusual clue — video tapes that show a group of young friends, and a basement where people are shot. Sadly, the film offers no thrills.
He Made Me Malala
Director: Davis Guggenheim
Cast: Malala Yousafzai
It’s rare that a feature-length documentary releases in multiplexes in India. But this is certainly an exception. It tells the story of 18-year-old Malala Yousafzai, the world’s youngest Nobel Peace prize winner. And, how she was nearly killed at the age of 15 by a Taliban gunman for speaking up for the girls’ education. Interestingly, the film also offers a glimpse of her simple teenage life, such as her struggles with homework, and a soft spot for Shahid Afridi and Brad Pitt. This one is highly recommended.
