The Mauritanian

Directed by Kevin MacDonald, the film is based on the real story of Guantánamo Bay prisoner Mohamedou Ould Slahi, who was detained as a suspect behind the 9/11 attacks.

The official description reads — "Captured by the US Government, Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim) languishes in prison for years without charge or trial. Losing all hope, Slahi finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley). Together they face countless obstacles in a desperate pursuit for justice. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), eventually reveals a shocking and far reaching conspiracy. Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir, this is the explosive true story of a fight for survival against all odds.."

The Mauritanian is slated to release on 9 February, 2021.

Bombhaat (Telugu)

Bombhaat is an upcoming science-fiction romantic drama, directed by Raghavendra Varma. The official synopsis says: "Vicky's been cursed with bad luck since childhood.
