Eye In The Sky
Director: Gavin Hood
Cast: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman
It’s a warfare drama starring Helen Mirren as Colonel Katherine Powell, a UK-based military officer, uncovers a suicide bombing plan by terrorists in Kenya. Her mission is to kill the plot. But as American pilot Steve Watts (Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year-old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute. An intense drama, with powerful acting, this film is a must-watch for war movie buffs.
Director: Scott Mann
Cast: Robert De Niro, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Dave Baustista After losing his job a father (Morgan), desperate for money to pay
for his daughter’s medical treatments, joins a crew that knocks over a dirty casino, same place where he works, but when the job goes bad they end up hijacking Bus 657 and are pursued by gangsters and police. The movie is no doubt entertaining but when you have a cast like De Niro and Morgan, you expect more. Despite a high-concept idea, this crime thriller doesn’t quite do the trick. — Team Indulge
Kapoor & Sons
Director: Shakun Batra
Cast: Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan, Alia Bhatt, Rishi Kapoor
You may find Kapoor & Sons to be a rehash of different Dharma Productions’ films, obviously because it’s produced by KJo, but the movie is surprisingly engaging. Rahul (Khan) and Arjun (Malhotra) are brothers living in London, and New Jersey. Rahul is a novelist while his younger sibling Arjun is a part-time bartender. The two are summoned back to the family home in Coonoor when their grandfather (Kapoor) falls ill. While the movie is funny, and heartwarming, it’s also quite unconventional. Worth a watch.
