Movies come, movies go… some we remember …many we forget. So here we are with another weekend coming up and the excitement of a set of new movie releases.
This weekend is full of movies we were all waiting for.
The first release – MAN OF STEEL
In 1978 we saw the first Superman movie which had Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman and Christopher Reeve. And now we have ‘Man of Steel’. This is the story of Superman, again. Yeah the same Superman series we grew up with! Presented by DC Comics and produced by Christopher Nolan, the movie takes us down the memory lane. In this we have Henry Cavill playing Clark Kent and Russell Crowe his father. The movie has a lot to prove this time.
Director: Zack Snyder | Stars: Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Amy Adams | Music: Hans Zimmer | Producer: Christopher Nolan.
The next release is – FUKREY
A story of four friends, their high school life and bonding is what ‘Fukrey’ is, which in a North Indian slang means good for nothing. After ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Rock On’ let’s see if Farhan Akhtar can create the same magic again! Will the newcomers be able to perform and carry the movie on their shoulders all by themselves? The music has new promises. ‘Ambersariya’ by Sona Mahapatra is already creating waves.
Director: Mrighdeep Singh Lamba | Producer: Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani | Story: Vipul Vig | Starring: Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, Ali Fazal, Priya Anand, Richa Chadda, Vishakha Singh | Music: Ram Sampath.
The last release for today is – ANKUR ARORA MURDER CASE
This one is sizzling medical thriller based on true events. The story line as it goes involves the case of medical negligence which results in the death of a child and how the fight for justice is taken upon. Director Suhail Tatari says, “The casting of this film was very critical as the script is a very sensitive one. So the idea was to have good actors. The message in the film is that medical negligence does happen and the point is to accept them. Also the faith that we put in the doctors should be reciprocated.”
A Vikram Bhatt movie with Tisca Chopra, Kay Kay and Vishakha Singh (who has two releases today on the same day, ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Ankur Arora Murder Case’) and Arjun Mathur (whom we saw in ‘Luck By Chance’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’.)
Director: Suhail Tatari | Cast: Tisca Chopra, Kay Kay, Vishakha Singh, Arjun Mathur | Producer: Vikram Bhatt.
So people this is Movie Time and I bring you the releases this week in India. We have some comedy, a lot of action and thrills for you. Have a pleasant weekend. This is Geetanjali Kaul wishing you happiness.
