Director: Rohit Shetty
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon
This is no Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. So if you were hoping to watch Khan and Kajol resurrect the Raj-Simran romance, this is a no-show. It’s a pulpy crime drama, made the Rohit Shetty style. In the film, Khan is a garage owner with a dark past, and that involved a love track with Meera (Kajol). But his brother Veer (Dhawan) is not aware of it. The film revolves around these relationships, set in the backdrop of two warring families. The twists and turns in the plot are predictable. Sadly, it’s not even high on comedy.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Director: JJ Abrams
Cast: Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver
Go watch The Force Awakens simply because it’s a brilliant mix of storytelling, acting, and visual effects. And the film’s quick pace keeps you interested, and won’t let you ponder on it at least until it’s all over. And while some new characters are introduced, it’s really good to see Fisher, and Ford return to the franchise. The film could be a tribute to the glory of Star Wars, or even a restart, but it’s
definitely not boring! — Team Indulge
Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Cast: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra
Bajirao Mastani is what Bhansali’s films are made of — stellar cast, opulent sets and costumes, and a brilliant background score. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have an engaging storyline. It narrates the love story of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao (Singh) and Mastani (Padukone), half-Muslim princess of Bundelkhand. This new romance strains Bajirao’s marriage with Kashibai (Chopra). The actors have done a great job, especially Padukone. Sadly though, she and Singh fail to rekindle their Ram Leela chemistry. War scenes are not Bhansali’s forte, that’s SS Rajamouli’s territory. A one-time watch only!
