What to watch in UAE this weekend...

It’s another dull week at the cinemas with just three new releases.

Clearly, the big players are being stashed away for the massive Eid celebrations next week.

If there’s any conciliation, there’s Anurag Kashyap’s concluding tale on the mafia war – ‘Gangs of Wasseypur 2’ – that’s sure to appease the movie fanatics. After Manoj Bajpai sets out to seek revenge for his father’s murder, it’s now the turn of his son Faizal Khan to continue the bloodshed.

‘Just Crazy Enough’ isn’t much to write home about, although critics have been fairly liberal with lead actor Chris Kattan’s double act.

Director couple Chris Kentis and Laura Lau’s 88-minute long spooky drama ‘Silent House’ is a well-crafted film that’s devoid of clichés.

Although it’s not without its flaws, it’s fairly non-offensive. It also attains importance as it pitches Elizabeth Olsen (sister to the famous Olsen twins) in her first act in a horror flick.

Gangs of Wasseypur 2

Genre: Drama

Director: Anurag Kashyap

Cast: Raj Kumar Yadav, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Nawazuddin Siddiqui

The story: A befitting conclusion to the story of vengeance in Wasseypur that’s inherited not just by its three powerful families but also the town.
