Are you a fan of horror movies? If the answer is yes, Vaastu Shastra is a good pick for this weekend. The film is not for the faint-hearted as it sends chills down your spine. The entire cast, including the four-year-old Ahsaas Channa, has done an incredible job in the movie.

Main Hoon Na

Streaming on: Netflix, MX Player

Director: Farah Khan

If you are a fan of Bollywood potboilers, Shah Rukh Khan and Sushmita Sen, Main Hoon Na will give you all three in abundance. But, try not to find logic in the film. It has Shah Rukh Khan chasing a car in a rickshaw and pinning down the terrorists. So, sit back, enjoy the singing and dancing and a full-on dramatic plot.

Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video, MX Player, Netflix

Director: David Dhawan

This was the third film where Sushmita Sen collaborated with filmmaker David Dhawan. The film, a typical Dhawan-comedy, also had Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. It revolves around Sameer (Salman), an orthopaedist who lies to his girlfriend Sonia (Katrina) about being married to Naina (Sushmita). The lie leads to confusion and laughter.

No Problem

Streaming on: Eros Now

Director: Anees Bazmee

The comedy caper is a multi-starrer featuring Sanjay Dutt, Akshaye Khanna, Paresh Rawal, Sunil Shetty, Sushmita Sen, Kangana Ranaut, Neetu Chandra and Shakti Kapoor. But, none of them could do anything to save this absurd and barely funny film.

Aarya

Streaming on: Disney Plus Hotstar

Director: Ram Madhvani, Sandeep Modi, Vinod Rawat

Sushmita Sen made her debut on the digital platform with Aarya. In her review of the web series, Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Fashioned as a crime thriller with a strong emotional core, Aarya sets up quite a pace. It moves swiftly, and that is its best quality because while the solidly written plot, detailed characters and smooth storytelling are all to the good, there are also the dips, contrived scenes, and loose ends, which we don’t quite have the time to dwell on. By the time we notice a flat register, we are already on to the next thing.”
