After Tevar's solo release last Friday, this weekend is going to see a deluge of big and small movies come together
Star cast: Vikram, Amy Jackson, Suresh Gopi, Upen Patel, Santhanam, Ramkumar Ganesan, Srinivasan, Mohan Kapoor, Ojas M. Rajani
Synopsis: The story of the film has been well kept under the wraps. The trailer gives out very less about the film and just increases curiosity. From what has been known till now Vikram is seen playing four very different characters which include one of a body builder, a beast, a hunchback and an urban looking romantic hero.
Why should you watch: Vikram comes back after a long gap with this film. Fans are expecting a lot from him after his superb performance in David. Amy Jackson's pairing with Vikram in the past has been very well received by fans and this time over fans are expecting their chemistry to work wonders again. Shankar's last directorial was Robot (Enthiran) with Rajinikanth, which broke a lot of Box office records and people are expecting a lot from him this time as well.

Star cast: Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan , Daniel Kaleb, Fllora Saini, Jayshree Soni, Olexandra Semen, Gaurav Gera, Jay Singh Rajpoot
Synopsis: Guru ji (Singh) is a spiritual leader who has a huge base of followers. He has accepted the challenge of eradicating social evils including drugs and gender-related issues that have been prevailing in the society. Those with vested interest and apathetic towards the welfare of the society are now disturbed as there's someone who has taken control of the situation. They conspire to kill him.
Why should you watch: The spiritual leader has a super fan following and that itself will be a huge crowd puller. Also the trailer and promos have not just made us guffaw but literally made us go ROFL. The songs too entertained us to the T with all the unintentional comedy going around.

He pretends to be a top fashion photographer, but in reality he is struggling as an unemployed light boy. Abhay Beri/ Chotu (Siddharth Sharma) is the youngest in the family. Not much is known about his present status. Years ago he was sent to New Zealand to study, but never returned... well until now! Along with the four siblings are a bunch of other unique and nutty characters like a village item girl, an extra slow family lawyer and 3 goofy investigators. The chaos begins when they discover that to open the will of their father they need to get ‘Chotu’ married. Set in a lush green, picturesque hill station, this story is about the dysfunctional 'Beri' family. A mad- caper but true to life, hilarious but emotional, fast paced yet heart warming story of a family estranged for years, brought together by greed but eventually finding the meaning of being a family.
Why should you watch: The gamut of actors in the film boast of some stellar performances. Shilpa Shukla, Swanand Kirkire, Kushal Punjabi and others have proved their worth in their previous films and will be a must watch in this as well. Also its a Prakash Jha production, so there has to be something unique in this.
