Brick Mansions

In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city.

Cast - Paul Walker, Robert Maillet, RZA, David Belle, Carlo Rota, Kalinka Petrie

Director - Camille Delamarre

Verdict - Being Paul Walker's last film, the film will definitely do well, but the story-line doesn't seem to be that strong. Run of the mill action will satisfy those interested in the genre, others might not want to catch this one.

Verdict - A classic tale revisited in 3-D, check it out only only if you are a fan of Tarzan or otherwise you will be failed since the plot-line isn't that great. 

IMDb - 4.4/10

Lateef

In a fight against the addiction that crime has to offer, an honest cop fights a battle against drugs, bureaucracy and the mafia that threaten to take down his city.

Cast - Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Murli Sharma, Mukesh Tiwari

Director - Israr Ahmed

Verdict - Again, another run of the mill story-line. One man fighting against the evils of society. Might have been better if there was some sort of fresh spin to it. I'd give it a one time watch.

Kya Dilli Kya Lahore

In 1948, a cross-fire erupts at an isolated stretch of Indo-Pak border, leaving only two soldiers alive. One is an Indian soldier of Pakistani origin while the other happens to be a Pakistani soldier of Indian origin. An ironic story of pride and survival begins when - in an attempt to evade danger, they bump into each other. And amidst continuous exchange of bullets, altercations and murkier situations, it evolves into a journey of human connection with an unforeseeable end.

Cast - Vijay Raaz, Manu Rishi, Raj Zutshi, Vishwajeet Pradhan

Director - Vijay Raaz

Verdict - A good story-line with a good core concept. The film does a lot with very little and manages to pull it off over all. A good watch.

Son of God

Son of God is a 2014 American epic biblical drama film based on Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's ten-hour miniseries The Bible. The film tells the life story of Jesus from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection.

Cast - Roma Downey, Diogo Morgado, Louise Delamere, Amber Rose Revah, Andrew Brooke, Darwin Shaw

Director - Christopher Spencer

Verdict - Another perepective on the life and times of Jesus Christ. But isn't that historically accurate and nowhere close to being an entertaining film. I would give this a miss.

IMDb - 5.5/10

Rotten Tomatoes - 22%

Release Date - April 25
