In this year full of more than 300 just Bollywood movies and more than 100 Hollywood movies, every week there are at least a couple movies that hit the theatres. But, the question is which movies should you spend on?
Here’s a list of movies that released this week along with their reviews, read on and decide which movie is actually worth watching in the theatres:
- Pari: Lacks The Horror ElementDirector: Prosit Roy
Starring: Anushka Sharma, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Ritabhari Chakraborty, Rajat Kapoor
Based on the old known theory of ‘Devil and Angel lie within ourselves’, Pari is a story about Rukhsana (Anushka Sharma) who falls in love with her savior Arnab (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) but he is already getting married to Piyali (Ritabhari Chakraborty).
All in all, Pari is a decent attempt but gets too predictable. We give it 2 buzzing bees.
- The Valley: A Sensitively Made Film
Director: Saila Kairat
Starring: Agneeta Thacker Alyy Khan, Suchitra Pillai & Salma Khan
The Valley is a decent film about a girl committing suicide and how her family deals with her sudden demise.
The Valley is a decent attempt. We give it 2.5 buzzing bees.
- Lady Bird: You Can’t Afford To Miss This Great FilmDirector: Greta Gerwig
Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Lois Smith
Lady Bird is about a student named Christine McPherson aka Lady Bird (Saoirse Ronan) who wants more from her ‘normal’ life. It’s also about the complicated relationship she shares with her mother.
It’s a gem of film & we give it 3.5 buzzing bees.
- Red Sparrow: An All-Out Action MovieDirector: Francis Lawerence
