A Suit-Wearing Briefcase-Carrying Baby
Has To Stop A Dastardly Plot

Coastweek -- Director Sunhil Sippy’s drama film Noor, based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz’s novel Karachi, You’re Killing Me! makes a worldwide release this Friday at NYALI CINEMAX, writes Nidaa Malik.

It follows a happy-go-lucky 20-something journalist-writer Noor’s misadventures, how she juggles her work, love and personal life and her weight issues on a day-to-day basis as she navigates her way through Mumbai.

Her job as a journalist and the responsibilities that come with it don’t figure high on her priority list.

However, things take a dramatic turn and she realises that it’s time to take charge of her life when she comes across an eye-opening investigative news story and undo the mistakes she has made.

Noor  features Sonakshi Sinha as the title character, along with Kanan Gill, Shibani Dandekar and Purab Kohli in pivotal roles.

It’s been a second great week for The Fate of the Furious (F8)!

With Dom and Letty married, Brian and Mia retired and the rest of the crew exonerated, the globe-trotting team has found some semblance of a normal life.

They soon face an unexpected challenge when a mysterious woman named Cipher forces Dom to betray them all.

Now, the F8 must unite to bring home the man who made them a family and crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage.

In true Fast and Furious style, there is plenty of gun fire, fast car action and amazing stunts.

F8 will unfold an epic battle between Diesel and his former racing friends.

The latest film in the street racing franchise sees many of the old gang returning to the fold – as well as some new but familiar faces starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren.

The crime thriller is rated PG-13 for prolonged sequences of violence and destruction, suggestive content, and language.

The most unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim’s home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase.

The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.

With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.

Screening in 3 and 2 dimension the comedy film is rated GE for some mild rude humor with the voices of Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Tobey Maguire.

National Award winning director, Srijit Mukherji, makes his debut Hindi film with a powerful drama, Begum Jaan, delving into the grim history of the Indian partition.

70 years back where India is in a midst of facing the bloody aftermath of a partition post gaining independence.

Sir Cyril Radciffe has been entrusted with the task of dividing the nation into two.

However this line of partition threatens the existence of a brothel owned by Begum Jaan (Vidya Balan).

The hookah-snorting, razor-tongued woman with authoritarian air, is the master of her fate.

From Gujarati to Bengali to Awadhi, her brothel has women of every caste, language and religion.

Soon, things take an ugly turn when they are slapped with a notice by the government which says that the ‘kotha’ must go away to make way for India and Pakistan.

With no other option left, Begum Jaan and her group of prostitutes choose the rebellious path to defend the place which they call their ‘home’.

If Vidya Balan is the showstopper of Begum Jaan, Gauahar Khan, Chunkey Pandey and Sumit Nijhawan are her most worthy partners.

Pandey as a cold-blooded contract killer will remain in your memory for some time.

The movie is a Hindi remake of the Bengali film Rajkahini (2015) and has an ensemble cast of eleven major female characters and also stars Palvi Sharda, Naseeruddin Shah and Ila Arun.

Full of creativity and good animation, Smurfs: The Lost Village, is an all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette (Demi Lovato) and her best friends Brainy (Danny Pudi), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does.

Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!

The adventure-comedy is rated PG for some mild action and rude humour and is in 3 and 2 dimension at CINEMAX.

An adaptation of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love still going strong in theatres, Beauty and the Beast is screening in 2 dimension and stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.

The drama is rated PG for some action, violence, peril and frightening images.

CINEMAX screens the last shows of the action comedy Chips and action-thriller Naam Shabana for its audiences.

A rookie officer (Dax Shepard) is teamed with a hardened pro (Michael Pena) at the California Highway Patrol, though the newbie soon learns his partner is really an undercover Fed investigating a heist that may involved some crooked cops.

Chips is rated Adults Only for crude sexual content, graphic nudity, pervasive language, some violence and drug use.

Naam Shabana provides the back-story of intelligence agent Shabana Khan (Taapsee Pannu), her journey from being an aggressive girl who carries guilt and a dark past on her shoulders to becoming a spy for the intelligence agency of the country.
