Angrezi Medium leads a diverse pack of fresh releases this week
This week will have only one Bollywood release, Irrfan Khan, Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's Angrezi Medium. Hollywood movie buffs too won't have a diverse spread to choose from, since the superhero flick Bloodshot is the solitary release this week. There are also two Tamil films coming to theatres — Dharala Prabhu and Walter.

Why it may work: Angrezi Medium, the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2017 comedy Hindi Medium, has already created a lot of buzz online after the release of the trailer. Moreover, fans of Irrfan Khan will get to see the actor in action for the first time following his period of recuperation from neuroendocrine tumour.
What's it about: Based on the Valiant comic character of the same name, Bloodshot revolves around a superhero augmented and evolved through technology and science. Dave Wilson has helmed the film in his feature directorial debut.
