    FilmSnip1Wazir
    Cast: Bejoy Nambiar
    Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hydari
    When actors Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar and director Bejoy Nambiar are involved in a film, there is a lot of expectation.
    And we must say, Wazir doesn’t disappoint, minus a few dull moments in the second half. It is a revenge drama, which
    brings a grief-stricken ATS officer (Akhtar) and a wheelchair-bound chess grandmaster (Bachchan) together. The film smartly
    uses the game of chess as a metaphor to talk about life. Bachchan and Akhtar are superlative. It’s a thrilling ride. — TI

    FilmSnip3Daddy’s Home

    Director: Sean Anders
    Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini
    Stepdad, Brad Whitaker (Ferrell), is a radio host trying to get his stepchildren to love him and call him dad. But his plans turn upside down when the biological father, Dusty Mayron (Wahlberg), returns. The pairing of the duo is spot-on. Their chemistry is natural, and the laughs and gags in bits are solid to a degree for sure. But Daddy’s Home ultimately flops with its loose script, and overall simple humour. Though its third act is relatively satisfying, the rest of the film doesn’t carry much weight. — TI

    Chauranga
    Director: Bikas Mishra
    Cast: Sanjay Suri, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Soham Maitra, Ridhi Sen
    The story is set in a fictional Indian village where caste oppression is prevalent even today. It is about a Dalit boy Santu (Maitra) who falls in love with a girl from an upper caste. His elder brother Bajrangi (Sen) helps him write a letter to her. While the premise is strong, the direction is half-baked, and the characters haven’t been fleshed out well. The fundamental flaw is that the film lacks an opinion about this pressing issue. One-time watch, maybe. — Team Indulge
