Cast: Akshay Kumar,
An Akshay Kumar film through and through, this one is filled with slapstick (or so they say) humour, gags and constant jokes that are sometimes unnecessary. For the better half of the film, Akhil Lokhande (Kumar), son of a billionaire, is trying to kill his father’s pooch, named Entertainment, because the mutt inherits the large estate. But when Entertainment constantly outwits him, he chooses to protect him against his crazy family.
The Hundred Foot Journey
Director: Lasse Hallström
Cast: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Juhi Chawla
Hollywood meets Bollywood in a movie that is simple, poignant and entertaining at the same time. Tracing the story of Hassan Kadam (Dayal), a poor Indian boy who moves to France along with his family and goes on to become a Michelin-star chef, falling in love and befriending the severe Madame Mallory (Mirren), along the way. A must watch.
22 Jump Street
Directors: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller
Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube
Delightfully able to improve on its hilarious predecessor and picking up from where it left off, this one keeps your funny bone tickled all the way. Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Hill) reverse social roles when they head to college this time around, suffering through heart-break and cynicism (for looking too old for college) as they struggle to keep the ‘bromance’ alive.
