Any weekend is utterly incomplete without the usual three-hour detoxifier that is the movies. Leaving worldly troubles at home, the average Indian heads over to the local theatre and armed with that buttery box of steaming popcorn, dives headfirst into what is now the fourth dimension for every Bollywood fan. But let us help you decide what universe you want to journey into this month. While booking tickets online has made the entire process so quick, booking tickets through Couponraja can help you save big while enjoying your favourite flicks.
We bring to you a list of the most interesting movies to watch out for in the month of February:
Based on Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations, Abhishek Kapoor’s third directorial venture promises quite a lot judging from the trailers. The movie features a cast comprising of the ravishingly red haired Katrina Kaif, as well as Aditya Roy Kapoor, entrusted with the uphill task of winning her over. And when you add Tabu to the mix along with a snowy Kashmiri backdrop, things are bound to get interesting. Music director Amit Trivedi is back with a scintillating soundtrack that is sure to enhance the movie-watching experience.
Sonam Kapoor plays martyred Indian air hostess Neerja Bhanot in this biopic which focuses on the hijacking of the Pan Am flight she was unfortunate enough to serve. The cast also includes Shabana Azmi as Neerja’s mother. The movie has Ram Madhvani at the helm as director, and it would be interesting to see whether he would be able to handle a more dramatic theme after the considerably lighter Delhi Belly.
A sequel to the insanely hilarious 2010 ‘terror’ comedy Tere Bin Laden, this movie promises a lot more hilarity with its outrageous plot and a capable cast of comedic actors. Abhishek Sharma is back as the director but Ali Zafar has handed the lead actor reins to comedian Manish Paul. Pradhuman Singh is back as Osama Bin Laden while the always reliable Piyush Mishra also plays a pivotal part.
The cold month of February ends on a sombre note with Hansal Mehta’s much-lauded film Aligarh. The exceptional Manoj Bajpai plays Professor Siras, a gay Marathi teacher at Aligarh Muslim University who is eventually driven to his death because of his ‘abnormal’ sexual orientation. Hansal Mehta, who last wowed the audience with the similarly themed Shahid, has already won accolades for Aligarh. Expect to be amazed by Bajpai’s singular performance, which critics say is wonderfully understated and ably supported by Mehta’s regular Rajkumar Rao. If you can just watch one movie this February, do watch this one.
