Director: Anurag Kashyap
Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vicky Kaushal
After his expensive yet disastrous outing last year with Bombay Velvet, Kashyap returns to the game he knows best — making crime thrillers on a tight budget. This one is inspired by the life of serial killer, Raman Raghav, who terrorised the streets of Mumbai in the mid-1960s. Siddiqui plays the psychopath, while Kaushal essays the role of the cop relentlessly chasing him — the two sink
into the skin of their characters brilliantly. While the film offers several chilling moments, it doesn’t hold your interest throughout. One-time watch, for sure. — TI
Director: Abhishek Chaubey | Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh
This film explores the rampant drug problem plaguing Punjab.
The plot follows three different stories — Tommy Singh (Shahid Kapoor), a DJ with a bad drug problem, a migrant labourer (Bhatt) who is trying to make money off it, and Sartaj Singh (Dosanjh), a corrupt police officer who earns money by bribing those caught in possession of drugs. A great effort by Shahid Kapoor and Bhatt, this one is a
brave take on a relevant social issue
The Conjuring 2
Director: James Wan|Cast: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga
The Conjuring 2 deals with another real life case from demonologists Ed (Farmiga) and Lorraine Warren’s (Wilson) files. This time around, the couple travels to north London, where a single mum and her four kids live in a house plagued by multiple spirits. While it’s not as terrifying as the first installment, or even Annabelle for that matter, it sure is worth a watch.
