Pathaan (UAE cinemas): Shah Rukh Khan is back with guns blazing in this wild action romp 'Pathaan', also starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. The tale of a bunch of invincible super spies, who can swoop of buildings and hurtle off flying helicopters, has a lot going for it. This is an action spectacle where you see the actors in top form. Watch out for John Abraham's villain act. He has the best lines in the film, but Khan's charisma still stands tall.

Blonde (Netflix): Be warned, it's a sobering biopic on the late bombshell and actress Marilyn Monroe, but watch it for actress Ana de Armas who is painfully soulful and disturbing in her career-altering role. The film is heavy, but it's worth the pain of watching the dark times of an actress who was worshipped by millions.

Qala (Netflix): Written and directed by Anvita Dutt of 'Bulbbul' fame, this haunting psychological drama is fuelled by stirring performances from the likes of Tripti Dimri, Swastika Mukherjee, and Babil Khan, the son of late actor Irrfan Khan. The music is also a highlight of the wonderfully-acted film about ambition and deception. Triptri plays Qala, a singer who craves for her iconic mother's love and acceptance. Played ably by Swastika as the overbearing and scathing maternal figure, the film explores the mercurial mother-daughter relationship. Babil, in the first role of his career, also holds his own.
