A mix of non-heroic and therefore relatable heroes, O Teri is a believable and satirical look at what our country has become, as seen from the eyes of today’s youth. It speaks their lingo and reflects their thought processes. Set in Delhi — the political powerhouse of the country — the film tracks the lives of these two journalists, as they uncover a scoop.
Director: Syed Ahmad Afzal
Cast:Jackky Bhagnani, Neha Sharma, Kayoze Irani Synopsis: The film is essentially a love story set in the backdrop of Indian politics. The film tracks Abhimanyu Kaul — a video games developer, living in Japan with his girlfriend Anwita Chauhan. Their life faces the test of time when blood ties and the pressure of being born into the first family of India tears Abhimanyu between his love for Anwita and the promise he made to his dying father, the Prime Minister of India. Being a public figure by reluctantly accepting to represent the party, and putting his privacy on the line, is a double-edged sword that Abhimanyu faces.
Director: Sanamjit Singh Talwar
Cast: Sunny Deol, Harman Baweja, Ayesha Khanna, Aditya Pancholi
Synopsis: Born in an upper middle-class society, Vicky had no mother and his father had no time for him. The cold loneliness of his world left him weak and tainted from within.

Vicky finds love and acceptance in a place where bullets don’t warn before firing. Interpersonal relationships are complex, and situations are twisted. Ambitions break free, as Vicky sets his eyes for the top spot in gangster land.
Director: Saad Khan
Cast: Kanika Batra, Gulshan Grover, Rohiet Nair and Vibhinta Verma
Synopsis: The film is a fast-paced crime thriller that revolves around three ‘psychotic’ assassins, who are sent to carry out a job in a waiting room at a deserted railway station.

The events that unfold eventually, form the rest of the story.
