Must-watch movies this week

Bollywood blockbuster Kick, and Hollywood mega productions Hercules and Planet of the Apes.

August 01, 2014


This film ruled the box office on Eid due to its complete entertainment value.  The king of box office Salman Khan has paired up with the gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez. From item numbers to action sequences, expect everything that comprises a typical Bollywood masala film and there could be some surprisingly good performances by Nawazuddin Siddiqi and Randeep Hooda.


Dwayne Johnson is all set to ‘rock’ the theatres across the country with the action packed Hercules. Directed by Brett Ratner, the American adventure film is based on the graphic novel Herucles: The Thracian Wars. In this sequel of the Legend of Hercules, the protagonist has become a mercenary as he travels along with five faithful companions, selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

You’ll see genetically evolved apes come at a critical juncture with mankind as the apes encounter a lesser friendly side of humans, who themselves are headed for a collapse after a virus turns into a fatal epidemic. This sequel to the Rise of the Planet of the Apes has given Hercules a tough time at the local box office. It’s still a cult film for the followers of the original Planet of the apes’ series.
