Preview & Analysis – Thor: Ragnarok is the most awaited release of the week while Hindi films led by Ittefaq may Struggle to open big at the domestic box office. Let’s find out what to watch and what to not this weekend.
Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization. Ragnarok is a Marvel adventure which has got some brilliant reviews upfront before the release and in fact, it is the best reviewed marvel film so far. Directed by Taika Waititi who was nominated for an Academy Award for his 2004 short film Two Cars, One Night. His feature films Boy and Hunt for the Wilderpeople became the top grossing New Zealand films. Horror comedy What We Do in the Shadows, which he co-directed with Jemaine Clement, also won critical acclaim. Thor: Ragnarok is his first Hollywood film. The film’s highlights are a fight between Thor and Hulk, not to forget Cate Blanchett’s character Hela, the goddess of death which has attracted the attention of a lot of people towards the film. It looks a must watch and this weekend’s best pick.
The script or the premise in general is on the strong grounds as it is based on the classic 1969 Yash Chopra directed movie by the same name. Is it a full remake or with a new twist only time will tell but if the makers Red chillies and their co producers Dharma productions are to be believed it’s
2 Murders, 2 suspects and 2 Versions so it’s not a true remake but has taken it’s own course . Ok though no one is to be trusted in this world as even the emperor lies sometimes but hope for the best at least 1 version is shockingly kick ass. It is directed by Abhay Chopra who is fairly unknown, but if you are a lover of suspense and thrill then this film is a must watch.
Yes its a movie and It’s a bollywood creation directed by debutant Rakhee Sandilya and without being disrespectful to anyone, Indian audience rarely laps up small budget products unless your are sent for Oscars like Newton or create a testosterone effecting controversy like Lipstick Under My Burkha. So best of luck to the makers hope they atleast recover the cost.
The House Next Door
Yes, this too is an Indian multiple language movie releasing in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi directed by debutant Milind Rau, starring Rang De Basanti fame Siddharth and hopefully is so scary that has atleast one person on your next seat to normal your heartbeat.
Directed by Harry Bhatti whose last Rab Da Radio was very very good, this hopefully enhances the already uplifted reputation of Punjabi movies. It’s looking good and after the Hollywood movie Thor: Ragnarok this should be your next choice.
