As the first Friday of February is here, we have three new Bollywood movie releases: historical period drama Shikara, crime thriller Malang, and psychological thriller Hacked. Apart from these, there are two Hollywood films also that have hit the theatres today: one is coming-of-age period drama Little Women, and the other is superhero-based Birds of Prey.
So we must say that this weekend has a lot to offer to cinephiles! And now, without any further ado, let’s begin with what each movie is about and a quick review.
At first, if we talk about Mohit Suri directorial Malang, the movie stars Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, and Kunal Kemmu in lead roles. It revolves around a couple (Aaditya and Disha) whose seemingly perfect life falls apart when they come to terms with one corrupt police officer (Anil) and his righteous counterpart (Kunal). People have already seen the crackling chemistry of the lead couple in beautiful songs like Chal Ghar Chalein and Humraah. And now they’re even showering love to the movie too.
Here are Twitterati’s reactions to Malang:
On the other hand, Shikara is a Vidhu Vinod Chopra directorial that is based on the real historical event of 1990 when a mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits took place. It stars Sadia and Aadil Khan in the lead roles.

Besides, the Hollywood action flick Birds of Prey has majority female cast in which Harley Quinn teams up with Black Canary, the Huntress, and Renee Montoya to save Cassandra Cain from Gotham City crime lord Black Mask. It has Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Ewan McGregor in lead roles.
