First and foremost, Kindly allow me to apologize for coming out with an extremely delayed review. The unbelievably long queues outside the multiplexes are to be blamed for this delay.

Director Kenneth Branagh is here with a lavish remake of Murder on the Orient Express.

Branagh’s latest offering is a blend of all these elements and to put the icing on the cake, Branagh, who also plays Hercule Poirot, succeeds in stealing the show with his calm and sophisticated demeanour and an old-school moustache.

‘Phillauri’ brings the ‘old-school romance’ back to life…

Anushka Sharma’s second venture as a producer is out. Expectations from the film were high, especially after the success of NH10. Phillauri, starring Anushka as a ‘good at heart’ ghost shines in patches. Diljit and Anushka have done complete justice to the characters they were portraying, but a loosely written script plays a spoilsport.

Overview:

An NRI named Kannan (Suraj Sharma) returns to India from Canada in order to marry her childhood friend Anu (Mehreen Kaur). His marriage with Anu turns into a roller-coaster ride after he is asked to marry a tree as he’s a ‘manglik’. The ghost of Shashi (Anushka) is bound to him as her spirit resides in that tree. The film narrates two parallel love stories, that of Kannan and of Shashi.
