Badrinath Ki Dulhania
This sequel to the 2014 film, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, ticks all the customary boxes of a paisa wasool Bollywood entertainer. It has everything that made it work for the audience – drama, dance and a great jodi.

Naam Shabana
Naam Shabana unfolds the backstory of Shabana from the much loved action spy thriller, Baby. This raw and powerful Shivam Nair film, kept the audience at the edge of their seats.

Logan
Logan was appreciated for its realistic portrayal of the superhero, its action sequences and some great performances. The perfect farewell to the clawed mutant, truly!

The Boss Baby
The Boss Baby which is about a suit-wearing briefcase-carrying baby was definitely an entertainer.

Kong: Skull Island
Kong: Skull Island, turned out to be rather impressive with its stunning special effects.
