Movie Battle – Friday March 24


Bhubaneswar: The show business in India has decreased a bit since the arrival of exam times and new business year. But that doesn’t discourage the industry to release latest movies in to the market every week! Here are the new movies that have made to the theatres:-

Anushka Sharma is back with another witty, comical movie with a very interesting star cast and a different plot. Phillauri is from her own production house which had their last venture with NH 10. It’s slammed story about two timelines and a ghost. Conflicting and showcasing many social stereotypes, Phillauri is a new kind of movie for Bollywood. It is expected to be above average and would most probably emerge as a hit. The movie also stars Suraj Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh.

Anarkali of Aarah
Another indie movie has made its way to Bollywood with the much talented Swara Bhaskar who plays Anarkali of Aarah. The movie represents the Social Stereotypical mindset of Patriarchal Society in India and also the struggles of a Dancer and Singer who was mistreated by a powerful man. The movie also stars some brilliant actors like Sanjay Mishra and Pankaj Tripathy. Unfortunately, due to less number of screens and being an indie film, the movie won’t be a success.


Looks like Hollywood movies have developed a knack for science fiction lately because many movies are making the roundabouts of the theatres with the same genre. Life is a sci-fi movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson. The movie is directed by Daniel Espinosa and features the story line of discovery of life on Mars. With Beauty and the Beast still in the theatres, not much hope is bestowed upon this movie.

So, these are the movies that are releasing this Friday in theatres near you. Let us know which of them you’re going to see!
