17 March (Wed) | Badrinath Ki Dulhania | 139 min | PG

Badrinath Bansal from Jhansi and Vaidehi Trivedi from Kota belong to small towns but have diametrically opposite mindsets about gender roles in society and about life in general. This leads to a clash of ideologies, despite both of them recognising the goodness in each other. Will they be able to overcome circumstances to accept their love for each other? Will they be able to surpass the expectations and pressures of their small-town families to be together? Answers to these questions and many more make for an interesting journey of love, laughter, emotions and madness called Badrinath Ki Dulhania (Badrinath’s Bride).

18 March (Thu) | Kahaani | 123 min | NC16

Vidya Bagchi who is seven months pregnant and alone, arrives in Kolkata from London to find her husband Arnab Bagchi missing. With nothing to rely on except fragments from her memories about him, all clues seem to reach a dead end when everyone tries to convince Vidya that her husband does not exist. She slowly realises that nothing is what it seems in a city soaked in lies. Catch this arresting thriller that won widespread praise for its woman-centricity and its unconventional ways of portraying strong female roles. 

19 March (Tue) | Queen | 146 min | NC16

Rani is a Delhi girl from a conservative family whose life changes unexpectedly when her husband-to-be leaves her stranded at the altar. With her dreams shattered, she decides to set out on the honeymoon - the one she's always been planning - by herself. As she travels the world and meets new people, she grows up as an individual, gains new experiences and discovers her own identity.

All films in Hindi with English subtitles. Screenings start at 7.30pm daily.
