This Friday sees an varied array of releases from Bollywood and Hollywood in the form of Luv Ranjan's Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, the Karan Johar-Diljit Sosanjh-Sonakshi Sinha-Sushant Singh Rajput multi-starrer Welcome To New York, Martin McDonagh's Oscar-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Will Gluck's animated film Peter Rabbit.
Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety
What's it about: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety delves into the depth of the new age belief that a marriage is also between two friend circles, apart from the bride and groom. The film chronicles what happens when one decides to get married, but their best friend and girlfriend don't get along.
Who is in it: Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha, Sunny Singh, Alok Nath, Deepika Amin
Why it may work: Luv Ranjan previously created magic with Pyaar Ka Punchnama and we will forever be hoping for a repeat.
Welcome To New York
What's it about: Teji, a (sloppy) recovery agent, and a fashion designer, Jeenal Patel, unknowingly land themselves in the thick of a Bollywood event in New York. What ensues is a series of chaotic events.
Who is in it: Karan Johar, Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, Sushant Singh Rajput, Riteish Deshmukh, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Rana Daggubati
Why it may work: This film is bursting at the seams with Bollywood celebrities, and if all of them combined still can't make this film work — then god save our industry (it's probably going to tank).
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
What's it about: An Oscar-nominated dark comic drama by Martin McDonagh, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri follows the story of Mildred Hayes, her fight to get justice for her daughter's murder and her battle with Ebbing's law enforcement authorities.
Who is in it: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Caleb Landry Jones
Why it may work: An offering by Academy Award winning director Martin McDonagh is bound to be enthralling. In the past, McDonagh has engaged his audiences with films like In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths and this time will probably be no different. All the prestigious nominations that this movie has raked up till now is also probably a good indicator of the film's brilliance.
What's it about: Based on the book series by Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit is the tale of a mischievous and adventurous hero. The film is touted to be an irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor reaches new heights as they rival for the affections of the kind-hearted animal lover that lives next door to them.
Who is in it: Domhnall Gleeson, Rose Byrne, James Corden, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie
Why it may work: After a carving a space in our hears as Bill Weasley from the Harry Potter franchise, Domhnall Gleeson's acting prowess has been showcased time and again. Hopefully the actor will knock it out of the park with Peter Rabbit too. Also, James Corden is never a bad addition to anything, ever.
