From this Friday some theatres are running shows of Oscar nominated movies which include Silence, Hidden Figures, Moonlight and Lion.
The other releases this week at the India Box Office:
DIRECTOR: Aparnaa Singh
CAST: Diwakar Kumar, Rumana Molla, Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, Divya Dutta, Sharad Kelkar and Sagarika Ghatge.
The trailer of the film somehow reminds us of the Julia Roberts film Erin Brokovich, in which she fights a gruelling battle against the system to shut down a factory which is polluting the water and killing people. In Irada, the plot seems similar just that instead of Julia we have Arsad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah.
A blast in a big factory leads to a series of events which are needed to be suppressed so that the tycoon’s reputation and profits are not damaged in any form. The reality is way gross than imagined. As the truth unveils, many powerful faces face grave danger.
They will do anything to save themselves. A power packed film which deals with a sensitive issue.
THE GHAZI ATTACK
DIRECTOR: Sankalp Reddy
CAST: Rana Daggubati, Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon and Atul Kulkarni. Voice Over by Amitabh Bachchan.
The film is the story of a war which was hidden from the eyes and ears of the public, what they call a classified mission. It is inspired by a true story and has Rana Dugubati and Kay Kay Menon in the main lead.
In the 1971 Indo-Pak war, Pakistan launches submarine PNS Ghazi to attack INS Vikrant and destroy it. The marine officers spend about 18 days under water to save one such mission for which they will get no recognition.
DIRECTOR: Shoojit Sircar
CAST: Amit Sadh, Taapsee Pannu and Arsh Bajwa.
Everyone gets married easily when it is arranged but what about those marriages which are opposed by the family? A couple in love creates a website to help others who want a runaway wedding and results to a lot of chaos.
