    Director: Siddharth Anand Cast: Katrina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan Bang Bang has two gorgeous leads, some eye-popping stunt scenes, a slew of beautiful locales, and pretty hummable music.

    Cast: Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez and Olivia Munn Director: Scott Derrickson "Deliver Us From Evil" is supposedly inspired by true events, although you'll be hard pressed to guess what portions in this fairly routine demonic-possession film could possibly be rooted in reality.

  • 'Two Night Stand' review: It's cutesy and inoffensive but also entirely forgettable 26-09-2014 11:30 PM
