Director: Kabir Khan
Cast: Salman khan, Kareena Kapoor, Harshaali Malhotra
A simple story of how speech-impaired Shahida (Malhotra) gets lost in India, and Bajrangi (Khan) takes it upon himself to return her to her family in Pakistan. Enter Rasika (Kapoor) who falls in love with Bajrangi, and you have a story which is a far cry from the Bhai’s other films.Though the plot could’ve been tighter, the film, with its subtlecomedy, stunning visuals and powerful emotions is worth your time.
Director: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly
An excellent addition to the Marvel stable, the film follows Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a petty thief. Lang is recruited by genius scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and given a suit that turns him into Ant-Man—with super strength and the ability to control an army of ants. But he has to fight Pym’s former protégé, who wants to use the technology for evil. Brisk and humorous, with an interesting plot, it is a must-watch.
Director : Biju Viswanath
Cast:Vijay Sethupathi, Ramesh
Centred on the issue of ageing and loneliness, the film, a road journey, depicts the bonding between two men. Sethupathi brings to life the aged arrogant, quirky Kailasam with finesse. A perfect foil is Ramesh Thilak who plays the younger man. The emotions, whether it is humour or sentiment, are played low-key, sans any melodrama or over-the-top feel. Offbeat, experimental and different, it’s ideal fare for a discerning viewer.
