    Triple 9
    Director: John Hillcoat
    Cast: Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet
    The phrase ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’ is perfect for this heist thriller. It has too many sub-plots that make sitting through the film annoying, as if the heavy-duty action scenes weren’t enough. It follows a gang of crooked cops, led by Terrell Tompkins (Ejiofor), who plan the murder of a transfer officer, Chris Allen (Affleck). Meanwhile, they perform an audacious bank robbery, on the orders of Irina Vlaslov (Winslet), a Russian mafia queen. The roles don’t do justice to the eclectic cast. An extremely average film.

    Director: Nalan Kumarasamy
    Cast:  Vijay Sethupathi, Madonna
    Low on violence and high on humour, the plot (credited to a Korean film) centers on the unusual bonding between a kind-hearted rowdy and a pretty girl seeking a job. Refreshing in its take, it has the lead pair putting in splendid performances. The chemistry between the duo is just perfect. Its light, redemptive ending will make one smile.  Engaging in its crafting and narrative style, the film is a rewarding watch.
