'Atrangi Re' (UAE cinemas): Directed by Aanand L Rai, this star-studded film with Sara Ali Khan, Dhanush, and Akshay Kumar, is being touted as a love triangle that can get murky and complex. A Bihari girl (Khan) gets entangled with a Tamil boy, played by Dhanush, but it gets complicated when her purported lover Akshay Kumar -- a magician -- enters the scene. Love is messy and this film subscribes to that sentiment wonderfully.
