Now that you’re suitably pumped for the weekend, let’s see what’s hot and what’s not, in this week’s edition of State-of-the-Cinema!
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK:
Here’s a surprise entry: Russian superhero flick Guardians is playing in cinemas! With subtitles! GASP!
Guardians or as its called in its native tongue, Zashchitniki (no, we can’t pronounce it either!), does NOT star a shirtless Vladimir Putin atop a majestic stallion, karate chopping bears and bombs alike. Or does it? Only one way to find out… TO THE CINEMA COMRADES!
Is hafte aik nahi, balke poori DO Bollywood films ap ki cinema screen pe nachain gi!
The Karan Johar produced, Alia Bhatt starring Badrinath ki Dulhania is a romantic comedy about two people falling in love despite clashing views on just about everything. But first, hijinks ensue! Dance numbers are danced! Hilarious misunderstandings are navigated! And finally, true <3 is achieved! D’aww!
Mushy romance ki jaga action aur adrenaline ke shauqeen ke liay Commando 2: The Black Money Trail paish ki jati hai. Shot in various glorious locations around Malaysia, Commando 2 tells the tale of a skilled commando on a mission to eradicate black money that’s been smuggled out of India. Expect danger! Expect Intrigue! Expect dramatic chases! Don’t expect big superstars, though, as this film’s helmed solely by up-and-comers to the Bollywood arena. Do they manage to hold the audience’s interest? Find out at your nearest cinema!
