Margarita, With A Straw
Director: Shonali Bose
Star cast: Kalki Koechlin, Revathy, Sayani Gupta, Kuljeet Singh, Hussain Dalal, Malhar Khushu, Jacob Berger, Tenzin Dalha, Shuchi Dwivedi
Synopsis: Laila (Kalki Koechlin) is suffering from cerebral palsy. She is a student at Delhi University and an aspiring writer who writes lyrics and creates electronic sounds for an Indie band at the university. She gets admitted to New York University and moves with her mother (Revathy). Living in Manhattan, she falls in love with fiery young activist Khanum (Sayani Gupta). Thus she embarks on a journey of sexual discovery which hinders the relationships between her family and friends.
Why should you watch: The film has been winning awards at various film festivals across the globe. It has been appreciated not just for its content but also for the superb portrayal of a cerebral palsy ridden patient by Kalki Koechlin. Aamir Khan saw the film and was touched so much by it that he decided to personally promote the film in whichever way possible. That itself speaks a lot about why this film is a must watch.
Director: Vikram Bhatt
Star cast: Emraan Hashmi, Amyra Dastur, Arunoday Singh
Synopsis: A young couple who are government officers dedicated to their JOBS and the nation. They are impassioned about their work and each other. All that changes in an instant in the face of a shocking betrayal which turns the tables on both of them. A potent solution to all of these crimes is discovered by the young man, in the form of invisibility, a condition that befalls the hero. The power of invisibility can be used to great good or can be corrupted to great evil; which does he choose? Especially when confronted with the one obstacle between achieving his goal and becoming all live without his love.
Why should you watch: The film promises to be a mix of Amitabh Bachchan's Shahenshah and Anil Kapoor's Mr India. The two have been cult classics and if the central character draws inspiration from them, this film must be a fun watch. Also, Emraan Hashmi is back with another film with the Bhatts, which is also a deadly combination. So it must be a good enough watch.
