Kung Fu Panda 3
Directors: Alessandro Carloni, Jennifer Yuh
Cast: Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Angelina Jolie
After the lovable Po finds his biological father, the two embark on an exciting journey to a ‘secret panda paradise’, But when he learns that the evil Kai is slowly defeating Kung Fu masters across China, he decides to train the entire village of clumsy and fun-loving pandas to take him down. With great visual and sound effects, this one is a family entertainer.
Ki & Ka
Director: R Balki
Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor
R Balki has done it again, with a different take on gender equality—Kabir (Arjun) wants to be a ‘house-husband’, while Kia (Kareena) wants to climb the corporate ladder. Though the first half is sprinkled with cliches, the second half makes its point. A tighter script would’ve made the movie a complete package. It’s a delight to see Kareena on screen again, but we wish Arjun would learn a thing or two from her.
Hello Naan Pei Pesuren
Director: S Baskar
Cast: Vaibhav, Aishwarya
It’s about a thief who steals a cellphone and inadvertently brings home a ghost with it. The first half is hilarious. If the second half could have been crafted as diligently and skillfully, the film would have been a totally satisfying experience. The director has played down the horror and upped the humour quotient, and this has worked to its advantage. The film is a far more interesting take on the horror-comic genre than many of the films we have seen in recent times.
