As the long weekend approaches, movie lovers are eagerly waiting for the latest releases to hit the theatres. From Super Mario Bros to Ravanasura, there are some awesome movies lined up for the audience to enjoy this weekend.
Super Mario Bros
For those who grew up playing video games, Super Mario Bros is a nostalgic treat that is hitting the theatres on 7th April. The movie, directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and Jack Black as Bowser. Filled with adventure, drama, and entertainment, the movie follows Mario as he battles to win the Mushroom Kingdom and the universe from the evil Bowser and his Koopa Troop.
Thriller lovers can watch Gumraah, a murder mystery directed by Vardhan Ketkar, starring Mrunal Thakur, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Ronit Roy in pivotal roles. The movie promises to keep the audience at the edge of their seats with its twists and turns as the murder investigation of a young man takes an unexpected turn when the cops discover that the prime suspect has a lookalike.
August 16 1947
August 16 1947, directed by N.S. Ponkumar and starring Gautham Karthik, Revathy Sharma, and Pugazh, the film is a periodic drama that takes place over the course of three days from August 14 to August 16. The story is set in a fictional village called Sangadu, which is known as the “capital of slavery” and is isolated from the rest of the world due to its location and the villagers’ lack of education.
Although the movie is not based on a true story, the director has aimed to keep the treatment of the movie as realistic as possible. The trailer starts with a powerful dialogue from the antagonist, a British head, who states, “Rest isn’t necessary to forget the pain; you can just inflict more pain.” The movie portrays the emotional and chilling story of how the British kept the villagers unaware of India’s independence and how they fought back to gain their freedom.
The Pope’s Exorcist
The Pope’s Exorcist, directed by Julius Avery and featuring Russell Crowe, Daniel Zovatto, and Alex Essoe, is a horror thriller based on the real files of Father Gabriele Amorth, the Chief Exorcist of the Vatican. The movie follows Amorth as he investigates the terrifying possession of a young boy and ends up discovering a centuries-old conspiracy that the Vatican has been trying to hide.
For action and crime genre lovers, Ravanasura, an Indian Telugu movie directed by Sudheer Varma and featuring Ravi Teja, Megha Akash, and Anu Emmanuel is all set to hit the theatres on 7th April. This psychological action thriller film promises to add an extra action tadka to the audience’s weekend.
So, grab some popcorn and head to the nearest theatre to catch these exciting movies and make the most of this long weekend.
