India Release Date: 14-OCT-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 2 on 5 (BAD but far from Worse)

Plot:
Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in a hospital in Italy and has no recollection of the last 2 days.

Langdon along with Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) must find the virus, clues to which are hidden in Dante’s ‘Inferno’.

Overall Review:
The film is based on the novel ‘Inferno’ by Dan Brown. The plot of the movie sounds thrilling, but sadly the movie isn’t. Ron Howard who previously won an Academy Award will surely feel that this film is just not one of his best works...

The duo Neeraj Pandey & Akshay Kumar is back after Special 26 and Baby. Rustom is a hat-trick movie for them. Movie is fictionalised version of the famous 1959 case of K.M. Nanavati that changed the face of the India judicial system. Akki plays Indian Naval Officer Rustom Pavri and has delivered marvelous performance on screen. In spite of having “Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi”, this courtroom drama fails miserably in technical department...
