New Film Releases

This month saw a bunch of significant films. With unique storylines and unexpected reactions the films that hit the theaters in February are:

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha to Aisa Laga

Directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar, this was one of the most-awaited films of the first half of 2019. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Rajkummar Rao, and Juhi Chawla, in the lead roles. A love story at the core, this film beautifully deals with the emotions of two women in a romantic relationship. A path-breaking story, aesthetic filmmaking, and a strong social messaging, Ek Lakdi Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga has garnered immense appreciation and accolades from critics and viewers.

Gully Boy

If India found an anthem lately, it was none other than ‘Apna Time Aayega’ popularized by the film Gully Boy. This Zoya Akhtar directorial stars Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin, and Siddhant Chaturvedi in the lead roles. From the raw acting of the stars to exceptional music, Gully Boy has stolen the hearts of young Indians. The most exciting part, however, is to watch Ranveer Singh rapping for his own tracks.
