This week is a little light on the desi cinema with only one small movie releasing that is noteworthy. On the other hand, you are getting a great deal on the Hollywood front with Spielberg returning to director seat with his old collaborator Tom Hanks and a gothic fantasy romance from the another ace director Guillermo del Toro.
So let’s take a look at the releases
Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2
In 2011 Luv Ranjan directed a comedy take on the life of three bachelor boys with the twists in their love lives. The film became a cult classic because of the relativity of the subject with the youngsters and received good box office success as well. The new movie from the director Pyaar ka Punchnama 2 is seems to be on the similar lines and the music of the film is already doing good on the charts. With a similar kind of fun expected from the movie and no major competition in the market the film might also work.
Bridge of Spies
Steven Spielberg needs no introduction to the Indian movie goer. The acclaimed director has a good fan following in the desi markets. The last film he directed was Lincoln, which won accolades in the Academy Awards. His new project is Bridge of Spies that marks his collaboration with his Saving Private Ryan actor Tom Hanks. The film is based on the 70s cold war era and is a thriller. Expect an engaging tale with Coen brother’s script. I am also placing a bet on the Academy Awards nomination for more than one category for this film.
If spy drama bores you and you like some horror elements, you have Crimson Peak releasing this Friday. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro another Academy Award winning director presenting you a gothic love story with inputs of horror. This is a big screen affair and has a lot to offer in terms of canvas. The lead actors include Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain.
So it’s a war between two Toms on the big screen we wish all the releases to win a lot of audience.
