Films on TV:

Maleficent

If you want to watch Angelina Jolie at her best, this film is it. The actress plays the role of Maleficent, whom we know from the Grim Brothers' Sleeping Beauty as the witch who casts a spell on princess Aurora.

This story takes us to her version of events. The story starts out to her being a kind hearted fairy who becomes hateful after her love Stephan betrays her. She places a curse on his daughter, Aurora, in order to avenge her thirst for justice.

Watch it on Zee Studio at 9 pm on Sunday, 24 September 2016.

Mad Max: Fury Road

The story is a perfect blend of VFX and story telling. This ultra feminist story takes us to an apocalyptic world where a tyrant rules over a desert and controls every drop of water. Only two brave rebels care to speak out against what is happening: one escaping grief and the other reaching out to her childhood, are the last hope for a few.

Watch it on HBO at 1 pm on Sunday, 25 September 2016.
