Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu
How many times have we seen the age old story of the boy and girl meeting, becoming friends, falling in love and then getting married beating all odds? Too many times, right? So this time, we get to see what happens when the boy and girl meet, marry and then become friends. Do they fall in love or does the marriage remain to be the best memory they have? Starring Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan, the film, previously named Short Term Shaadi, is another orthodox rom-com to hit Indian screens this year. Imran Khan plays Rahul Kapoor, an obsessively serious architect who happens to lose his job in Las Vegas. He plans to remain mum on the topic to his parents and find himself a new job. But what he does find is a quick witted and ultra cool hairstylist Riana Braganza, played by Kareena Kapoor in an unexpected twist of the tale. She is everything that he is not and she believes in living every moment to the fullest. Fate leads them to meet again on Christmas Eve and what happens next is possible only in the city of Vegas; the two wake up next morning to find that they are married to each other. It takes them ten days to get themselves another appointment for the annulment of the marriage. In these 10 days, they develop a kind of friendship that is nurtured by the many moments they share, of laughing together, arguing and fighting.

Man On A LedgeMan On A Ledge
Man On A Ledge is a mid-budget thriller with modest aspirations and genuine popcorn appeal. Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans) stars as Nick Cassidy, a former New York City cop wrongly convicted for the theft of a prized diamond. After exhausting all judicial avenues for exoneration, he takes the unusual and seemingly desperate next step of planting himself on a ledge outside the penthouse of midtown's Roosevelt Hotel and threatening to jump. An NYPD psychologist (Elizabeth Banks) is summoned to talk him down, unaware that Nick harbours an ulterior motive. From his perch above midtown, he is secretly orchestrating a scheme to take revenge against the corrupt corporate chieftain (Ed Harris) who engineered his demise and to prove his innocence once and for all. Worthington makes a likable protagonist and Harris' disturbing frame lends an added menace to his devious tycoon villain.

The GreyThe Grey
Liam Neeson plays Ottway, a man whose sole job on an Alaskan oil rig consists of gunning down the occasional wolf that makes a run at an oil-worker. Ottway is a hard, stoic sort, who gains a purpose for living, when his flight home crashes down in the Alaskan wilderness, killing all but a handful of its passengers. Ottway, his survival skills honed in a previous life, emerges as the only person capable of guiding them to salvation. Neeson is surrounded with an ensemble of familiar types, the most notable of which are Talget, the family man, Henrick, the conscience, and Diaz, the jerk. Figuring they'll perish before salvation arrives, they agree to make a trek to the nearest human habitat, braving a number of dangers, the most fearsome of which are the ravenous 'rogue wolves' that roam the landscape. The film, shot in British Columbia in conditions that were apparently every bit as brutal as they appear on-screen, certainly looks authentic – both beautiful and ominous. The film would have been perfectly enjoyable as a straightforward survival epic but its heavy-handed tendencies leave it feeling a bit overcooked.

Big MiracleBig Miracle
Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle. Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can't wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she's also his ex-girlfriend. With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world's attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another.
