April - Playlist

April is another good month like March with so many releases to choose from. What’s different in April is that we have more Bollywood releases recommended compared to Hollywood and we can have one Lollywood release too.


Naam Shabana (15+)

Release date: 30 March 2017
Genre: Action
Running Time: 160min
Tapsee Pannu was impressive in Pink and lovable in Chashme Badoor. We strongly believe that she has the potential to carry a film on her own and along with names like Akshay Kumar and Manoj Bajpai this film is also not short of talent. This film is a spin off from Akshay Kumar’s Baby. In the trailer, we see a scared Tapsee Pannu being recruited by Manoj Bajpai and later trained and sent on a mission where she gets assistance from Akshay Kumar. Trailer has a very dark believable tone and characters seems to blend well. Tapsee’s seeming sincerity toward Shabana in trailer is the reason we recommend it.

Fast and Furious 8 (18TC)

Release date: 13 April 2017
Genre: Action
Running Time: 140min
An idiotically simple plot line, fast paced screen play, cool car chases, famous city skylines, jaw dropping stunts and slapstick comedy that is all expected from the film and nothing else. Last one though was the weakest in the series still managed to entertain, so if you are looking for popcorn entertainer this should do it.

Ghost in the Shell (18TC)

Release date: 20 April 2017
Genre: Action
Running Time: 120min
Language:  English
Watching a half human half robot Scarlet Johnson kicking some ass is more than enough to drag us to the cinema. Trailer shows confused Scarlet Johnson trying to unlock some mystery in a very futuristic world. Trailer is visually pleasing and dialogues like “” entice the viewer. I did a little research on the film and found out that it’s based on 1995 Japanese animated film of the same name which explored the idea of what makes us human. Is it confining to societal norms or the inner humanity that’s makes us human.   for a detailed review check out Chris Stuckman take on the Japenese version on youtube. Hope this film is as interesting as its original.



Release date: 21 April 2017
Genre: Adventure
Running Time: 120 min
Sonakshi Sinha is my most favorite actress from the younger lot. It’s such a shame she never gets a role that can justify her talent but whenever she does like in case of “Lootera” she does shine bright. Noor is the adaptation of Saba Imtiaz ‘s “Karachi, You’re Killing Me”. In the trailer, we see slightly silly Noor going through very relatable issues such as weight, work etc. but soon things go dark and we see a more mature Noor being rejected by everyone and struggling her way forward. Trailer and even the posters have a very fresh/humble feel and knowing that story is based on a critically acclaimed comedy crime-thriller, we have good vibes about Noor.

The Boss Baby (TBC)


Release date: 20 April 2017
Genre: Animation
Running Time: 100min
I loved the trailer, the situational comedy that arise with such plot lines is always fun experience. I am expecting this film to be on the same patterns as Cats and Dogs where in front humans they become innocent pets but at the back end they are super agents. Here in trailer we see something similar. Our Baby is on a mission against pets as they are taking love away from babies. Trailer is fun and easy on eyes and highly recommended with kids.

Apart from above releases I am hoping we get Pakistani Film Chalay Thay Saath get Dubai release along with its Pakistani release date of 21st April 2017. Check my trailer review here.
