Movies to watch in UAE this weekend

After a massive opening during the Eid weekend, the follow-up appears to be trimmed down to just a few laughs. The two new releases this week are both comedies.

While the Bollywood one deals with romance between two grown-ups, the other deals with a unique bromance between a guy and his teddy with a flourishing romance in the backdrop.

‘Shirin Fahad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’ appears to be a enjoyable watch, with Farah and Boman going all out to ensure they turn their love affair into a fun ride.

Even ‘Ted’ should pack in a few tickles, considering it’s created by the MacFarlane's brand of comedy. Many online reviewers have given it a thumbs-up, with one writing;  “It is one of the funniest movies for grownups that's come along in years.”

So, go on… have a laugh, this weekend!
