A struggling photographer on the streets of Mumbai is pressured by the family to get married — and he convinces a stranger to pose as his fiancee for a family visit. However, over time, they develop a connection that opposes the worldview of relationships.
Critics: “A man and woman pretend to be a couple because of cultural pressure, and wind up falling for each other. It’s familiar, but compelling nonetheless,” said Aisha Harris, The New York Times.
One Child Nation
IMDb rating: 7.5/10
Director: Nanfu Wang, Lynn Zhang
Cast: Brian Stuy, Jiaoming Pang, Longlan Stuy, Peng Wang
One Child Nation is an Amazon original documentary that narrates the consequences of China’s single child policy. A filmmaker becomes a mother and unfolds the stories of those who lived through it — generations of parents and children trapped in the social experiment.
Critics review: “Before such adoptions became common, the movie reveals, infant girls were often abandoned, or simply killed,” said Mark Jenkins, Washington Post.
102 Not Out
IMDb rating: 7.4/10
Director: Umesh Shukla
Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Jimit Trivedi
102 Not Out is an ageless comedy starring the two Bollywood icons — Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan as father and son. Dattatraya Vakhariya is a 102-year-old man who lives with his 75-year-old son, Babulal. Dattatraya lives like a free bird youngster and has a secret mission to change his son’s attitude towards life.
Critics: “102 Not Out is a sweet watch and it is Amitabh Bachchan-Rishi Kapoors partnership that warms your heart. But the film remains fairly one dimensional and turns preachy towards the end,” said Kriti Tulsiani, News 18.

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh, Kiara Advani
Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh, Kiara Advani are two Batras that opt for in-vitro fertilization. They are eagerly waiting for their babies when the confusion creeps in. The sperm of both the couples get mixed in the laboratory.

Sunny, a 21-year old rapist and murderer is in town on a murder contract by a politician. However, SP Shivani Roy vows to catch him and bring justice to the young girls he murdered after the assault.
