With Kunal Kemmu, Soha Ali Khan, Cyrus Broacha, Boman Irani, Mahesh Manjrekar, Vinod Khanna, Amit Mistry and Simone Singh, 99 captures the fear of the year 2000 and life in a newly liberalized India. Two kind-hearted Mumbai-based crooks (Kunal and Cyrus) run a small but thriving fake SIM card business. They are forced to work for an oily loan shark (Mahesh Manjrekar) and collect a bad loan from a desperate liar (Boman Irani). The film is packed with hilarious footage and has shown great promise.
Shor in the city
Streaming on: AltBalaji
With Shor in the City, directors Raj & DK gave us some adorable characters that we meet through the film’s narrative and showcased Bombay in its true essence. It starred actors Tusshar Kapoor, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Radhika Apte, Pitobash Tripathy, Nikhil Dwivedi, Girija Oak, Sundeep Kishan and Preeti Desai. The criminal saga revolves around its five main characters who struggle to survive in the crime-laden city. Special mention to the Sachin-Jigar soundtrack.
Come on Goa is gone
Streaming on: Eros Now
The star of Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari can be called a cult film. It was Bollywood’s first attempt at making a movie about a zombie apocalypse. It revolved around a rave party where all the guests turned into zombies. With the elements of horror, action and comedy added in just the right amount, Go Goa Gone is a movie you can’t miss. The witty dialogues and the exceptional performances of the actors are like the icing on the cake.

Yudi from Saif Ali Khan and Aanchal from Ileana D’Cruz are like any other couple, who love and annoy each other equally. Both are novelists who, after spending a passionate moment together, go their separate ways. But is this the end of their story or is it the start of another journey? In a quick tale mixed with their distinctive urban humor, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s film has all the tropes of a romantic comedy. It serves all fans of the genre well. But don’t go in with a lot of expectations.

A Gentleman is an elegant film with beautiful main actors, Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. The action comedy features the story of a man in disguise as a boring and simple technician, played by Sidharth. In his review of the film, Shubhra Gupta wrote: “Some of the proceedings, especially the light jokes between Malhotra and her colleague, performed by Hussain Dalal, are funny. And while we’re fully OD-ing over the eye-candy on display (there’s plenty of evidence that both Malhotra and Fernandez have washboard abs and other whistle-worthy attributes), we also wish that there is more intriguing comic book energy, which continues to slide and slow down.
