Are you tired of spending the weekends watching same old sitcoms and movies on TV? How about catching up with some new movies releasing this week, along with your gang of buddies? Here are some of the movies that you can watch over the weekend.
Start your weekend with Kiran Rao 's awaited directorial debut Dhobi Ghat, starring Aamir Khan, Prateik Babbar, Kriti Malhotra and Monica Dogra. Set up in Mumbai’s hustling and bustling Dhobi Ghat, this movie revolves around the lives of 4 people – Arun(Aamir), the reclusive painter; Munna(Prateik), the dhobi who dreams to be a star; Shai(Monica), the investment banker on a sabbatical in India and Yasmin(Kriti), the recently married Muslim girl; whose worlds intersect and leave them completely altered. This simple yet enchanting movie with impressive cinematography and brilliant performances, is a must-watch for all Bollywood buffs.
For those who can't get enough of movies based on real life issues, there is Hostel, directed by Manish Gupta and starring Vatsal Sheth, Tulip Joshi and Mukesh Tiwari. The movie is based on the evil practise of ragging prevailing in various college hostels. Subjected to repeated torture and humiliation by the seniors, the juniors suffer silently and attempt suicide unable to fight against the situation. The film is an honest attempt by the writer-director Manish Gupta to show the plight of such students, who are tortured, stripped and molested in the name of ragging.
