Ferrari Ki Sawaari
Director: Rajesh Mapuskar
Cast: Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani, Ritvik Sahore, Vijay
Synopsis: A boy thinks of nothing but cricket. His father, Rusy, thinks of nothing but his child. To fulfill his son’s dream of playing at Lord’s cricket ground, the honest and upright Rusy performs the first act of dishonesty in his life. He borrows a gleaming red Ferrari for one hour. However, the only trouble is: he doesn’t inform its owner. A wild, breathless, bumpy ride begins. A ride that leads to a menagerie of characters: a wedding planner who’ll stop at nothing, a Laurel-and-Hardyesque pair of loyal attendants, a greedy politician
and a mechanic who specialises in stolen cars.

Synopsis: The movie is set in Banaras where Shravan is a simple but righteous son of a peon who joins Banaras University for his post graduation on his father’s insistence. He falls in love with the principal’s daughter. A university topper and a man of principles, Shravan notices a lot of corruption in the university. He actively involves himself in the fight against corruption. This fight doesn’t go unnoticed by the local MLA Dharmraj Chaudhary, who finds ways to push Shravan to the edge and destroys everything in his life. After Shravan’s life is saved by an honest cop, he pledges to fight back. Shravan becomes Pandit, a goon who only fights with Chaudhary and his brothers to take revenge. Pandit successfully takes his revenge and decides to end his phase on that note.
Director: John Gulager
Cast: Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, David Koechner, and David Hasselhoff
Synopsis: After the terror unleashed on Lake Victoria in Piranha 3D, the pre-historic school of blood thirsty piranhas are back in its sequel. This time, no one is safe from the flesh-eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of summer’s best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert with survivor Paul Scheer and a partially devoured Ving Rhames back for more fish frenzy. David Hasselhoff trades in the sandy beaches of Baywatch to be a celebrity lifeguard at the racy water park. The terror doubles and the action doubles too.
