Sundeep Kishan on Next Enti

"Generally, films do not talk about sex openly but in our film, Next Enti, there is a lot of conversation around sex. It’s one of the rare films which addresses sex and how the new generation is approaching it. It talks about how they differentiate between love and sex and how it influences a relationship," Sundeep Kishan told indianexpress.com.

Kajal Aggarwal on Kavacham

"Kavacham is a thriller. It does have a love story but more than the focus on the love story, it’s a very fast paced, keeping you-on-the-edge-of-the-seat sort of a thriller. That is what I feel is quite exciting. The audience will definitely wonder about what happens next. Especially, post the interval, with twists and turns, different parts of the plot gets revealed," Kajal Aggarwal told indianexpress.com.

Tamannaah Bhatia on Next Enti

"When I heard the script, I was convinced that I should do Next Enti. It is a youthful subject which I haven’t done earlier in my career. The film is based in London. It talks about stereotyping women. For example, judging a woman based on her fashion choices. This film deals with the question of why everyone looks at women with some preconceived notion. It also talks about a woman’s right to make her own decisions. We show the challenges of the girls of the current generation through the journey of the female protagonist in this film," Tamannaah Bhatia told indianexpress.com.

Kedarnath: Our verdict

There was clarity of intent and execution in Abhishek Kapoor’s terrific Kai Po Che, as it went about upholding the virtues and necessity of religious harmony. It took a clear stand. In trying to please everyone, Kedarnath loses edge, and leads to a tepid cop-out. It’s a weepie minus the tears.

“The incident took away so many lives and many also went missing. It was not an ordinary number. The scale of the disaster was huge in comparison. But sadly, in our country, there is a disparity between poor and rich people's death. It was mostly the lower-middle class people that lost everything in the flood, so no one talks about it. When someone goes to see Kedarnath, I want them to experience the calamity and feel the pain. Also, I want them to understand who we are as a nation. Above all religion, if one can sacrifice for mankind or help another, I think that's where the real goodness lies. I would be happy if I am able to pass these messages through my film,” Kedarnath director Abhishek Kapoor said in an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com.
