Duration: 87 minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: TBD

Plot:
Three elite climbers struggle to find their way through obsession and loss as they attempt to climb Mount MERU, one of the most coveted prizes in the high stakes game of Himalayan big wall climbing.

Overall Review: MERU is a mountain on the knife-edge of the Himalayas in Northern India, near the headwaters of the sacred Ganges river. At 21,000 feet, it is nearly seven thousand feet less than Everest, but while the more famous mountain attracts thousands of climbers every year, the pinnacle of Meru (aka The Shark’s Fin) had never been reached by human beings. It’s described as the anti-Everest, a non-tourist destination with no guides and no way stations...

Overall Review:
Placed on the backdrop of the cold war in 60’s, director Guy Ritchie (of Sherlock Holmes / Lock Stock and Smoking Barrels fame) delivers this fun spy action comedy with quick, clever storytelling that entertains well, to the best of its ability. What sets this movie apart from other recent spy thrillers is it staying set in the
60s time period along with stylish & vivid look not being modernized...
