Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Director: Zack Snyder
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Caville, Jesse Eisenberg
Getting used to Affleck as Batman was one thing, but to deal with a script that is as weak as bad coffee was quite another. In Dawn of Justice, the two superheroes have a serious face off—what with neither of them being happy with the other’s methods of saving the world. But it’s hamming champ Lex Luthor (Eisenberg) they need to worry about. The two then forget their worries, and join hands. Yawn!

Director: Nishikant Kamat
Cast: John Abraham, Diya Chalwad
Kamath’s latest film packs in stylised action sequences, but fails in the story and characterisation. It follows the life of Kabir Ahlawat (Abraham), who runs a pawn shop in Goa. All hell breaks loose when his four-year-old neighbour, Nayomi (Chalwad), is kidnapped. This brings forth the drug mafia ruining the beach state. Ahlawat, who already has a terrible past, goes on a rampage to kill them. This is where we stop taking the film seriously. Abraham’s acting takes a backseat amid the action. Avoid it.

Director: Vamshi Paidipally
Cast: Karthi, Nagarjuna, Tamannaah
It chronicles the unusual bonding of two men with contrasting natures and backgrounds. The director has handled the plot with sensitivity and finesse. Both lead actors have enacted their roles impressively, their screen chemistry a key strength. The narration could have been crisper in the second part. The film touches a warm chord with its positivity, emotional quotient and its undeniable wholesome appeal.
