Low-concept and modestly-scaled films are always hard to sell, but authentic passion and a steady accumulation of detail, sets writers Amit Masurkar and Mayank Tiwari's "Newton" apart.
Shreyas Talpade's "Poster Boys" is a screw-ball comedy about three men who find themselves socially ostracised after they feature in a poster promoting a public service campaign on suture-less-vasectomy.
Narrated in a non-linear manner, "Daddy" is a biopic of Arun Gawli, a mill worker's son who became a gangster and then metamorphosed into a politician.
This is a brave and bright film with its heart in the right place and its gaze refreshingly free of a gender bias fixed firmly at the crotch level.
If you are looking for a film that is unintentionally funny because it takes itself so seriously you would think the end-result would be a heist film on a par with Vijay Anand's "Jewel Thief" or at least Milan Luthria's "Kachche Dhaage", then look again.
Overall, swathed in mindless but slick action, this poorly told tale is purely risky to watch.
