Plot:
Decorated officer. Devoted family man. Defending his honor. His name is RUSTOM.

Overall Review:
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...

India Release Date: 10-JUN-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: on 5

Plot:
A grandfather, police officer and a priest join hands to investigate and find a missing child.

Overall Review: Based on korean film: Montage, Te3n takes you into an old man’s journey of the search for truth. Ribhu Dasgupta’s directorial is a suspense thriller set in Kolkata. Te3n featrures industry’s best actors Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui & Vidya Balan in pivotal role. Sadly, movie lacks all the punches of thriler and mystery mainly due to the glitches in script and the thrills. The story or the screenplay don’t set your pulse rates rising or heartbeats racing, but lethargically crawl towards the climax...
