    Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain
    Director: Ravi Kumar
    Cast: Martin Sheen,
    Mischa Barton, Kal Penn
    Set during the Bhopal disaster of December 2–3, 1984, it sees Motwani (Penn), a tabloid reporter, questioning the chemicals at the plant, and how he ropes in an international journalist (Barton) to make the issue global. The film then follows how the CEO (Sheen) of the chemical company disregards all warnings, leading to the blast. While it isn’t completely accurate—it stays clear of assigning blame—it’s a haunting film, where Sheen steals the show.

    Action Jackson
    Director: Prabhudheva
    Cast: Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam
    Romance blossoms between small-time crook Vishi (Devgn),
    and HR executive Khushi (Sinha). But their relationship takes a complicated turn when the police and an international don are on the lookout for professional assassin AJ, who looks like Vishi. Poor direction and a mixed plot makes for a movie that fails to entertain.

    1 Pandhu 4 Run 1 Wicket
    Director: Veera
    Cast: Vinay Krishna, Hashika
    The movie is about a couple who elope and take refuge in a mansion, where  eerie things happen. It also touches on the obsession of women with TV soaps, men with cricket, and the resulting conflict in a household. It has an interesting premise with the potential to build up some engaging comic-horror moments, but an insipid screenplay and mundane treatment make it a monotonous experience.
