Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
Director: Sooraj R Barjatya
Cast: Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor
If not for Salman Khan — the film has not one, but two of him — we would have recommended you stick to Sooraj Barjatya’s low-key Vivaah, or one of his classics such as Hum Aapke Hain Kaun or Maine Pyar Kiya. Because this film works, more or less, on the same formula of differences within big families. Here, Yuvraj Vijay Singh (Khan) is engaged to princess Maithili (Kapoor), who is put off by his high-handed behaviour. Then a look-alike of Singh, happy-go-lucky Prem Diwale, enters their lives and tries to resolve the royal tension. Kapoor delivers yet another forgettable performance, and even Khan could’t save it.

Hotel Transylvania 2
Director: Genndy Tartakovsky
Voice cast: Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez
A pretty stereotypical sequel, Hotel Transylvania 2
continues the crazy antics of Dracula (Sandler) and his
family. After becoming parents, Mavis and Johnny go to LA to visit his parents. Meanwhile, Dracula takes his new grandson on a trip to his old haunts to show him how to be a monster. The film showcases mutual tension between the undead and the living, who have forged a truce up in the Carpathians. The voice cast does a fairly good job while the film is quite spirited and engaging. — TI
The Peanuts Movie
Director: Steve Martino
Cast: Noah Schnapp, Kristin Chenoweth
Life always seems complicated for good ol’ Charlie Brown (Noah Schnapp), the boy who tries his best against seemingly impossible odds. In this adventure comedy, Charlie has a new crush in school, but he does not have enough courage to speak to her. Meanwhile, the film offers a 3D glimpse into Snoopy’s 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 will put a smile on your face no matter what, and kids will love it.
