Akshay Kumar stars as Akhil Lokhande, whose aim in life is to become a millionaire and prove his worth to his girlfriend Saakshi’s (Tamannaah Bhatia) father (Mithun Chakraborty). When he discovers he is the son of a multi-millionaire diamond merchant who has just passed away, he expects to inherit the wealth – but his father has left his estate to his golden retriever, named Entertainment. The movie focuses on Akhil’s relationship with the dog as it develops from hate into love, with the canine getting rid of a few evil villains along the way. There are ridiculous slapstick jokes, circus-style acting and below-average directing, with very little meaningful plot. Expect a few bursts of laughter here and there if silly slapstick amuses you, but overall you will probably end up rethinking your decision to watch this – leave your brain and sense at home. The only real highlight is the adorable dog.

This psychological thriller, based on true events, focuses on two Olympic gold medal-winning brothers, Mark and David Schultz (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) and their tragic relationship with a multi-millionaire sponsor, John du Pont (Steve Carell). Director Bennett Miller took the Best Director award for this film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Damon Wayans Jr and Jake Johnson – both known for hit TV comedy New Girl – play two friends who dress up as police officers for a costume party and become a neighbourhood sensation. But their innocent fun goes awry when the “heroes” get tangled up with mobsters and dirty detectives, forcing them to put their fake badges on the line.
The third instalment of the action franchise follows in the footsteps of its predecessors with an all-star cast. This time, Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the team go up against villain Stonebacks (Mel Gibson), who co-founded the Expendables with Barney. But Stonebacks went bad and became a ruthless arms dealer, forcing Barney to kill him — or so he thought. Stonebacks is now out to destroy the team, prompting Barney to recruit some younger, faster and more tech-savvy team members. A battle of old-school action versus hi-tech new blood ensues, giving the audience another action-packed blockbuster.
When 17-year-old Athena Dizon (Kathryn Bernardo) unintentionally tricks bad-boy heartthrob Kenji Delos Reyes (Daniel Padilla), she unwillingly finds herself pretending to be his girlfriend to make his ex jealous. Inevitably, this causes her a lot of problems — from dirty looks from the girls from school to his hotheaded temper and argumentative nature.
