Doctor Strange in The Multiverse Of Madness

Where: Disney+ Hotstar

In this movie, Dr Stephen Strange embarks on a search for the Book of Vishanti, alongside the character, America Chavez. As they are chased by demons across the multiverse, you are in for another entertaining ride in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role, this latest Marvel Studios production owes much of its gripping flow to the directorial excellence of Sam Raimi.


Where: SonyLiv

Set on the battlefront of WWI, this movie follows two British soldiers as they look to achieve the Herculean task of breaching enemy lines to deliver a message that could save 1,600 soldiers. Director Sam Mendes took inspiration from his grandfather’s wartime stories to write this Oscar-winning action drama. Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Madden, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, and Andrew Scott don the battle fatigues in this emotionally told war epic.


Where: Amazon Prime Video

Based on the Frank Herbert novel, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune won 6 Oscars this year and a nomination for Motion Picture of the Year. Set in the distant future, Dune follows the journey of a gifted young man, played brilliantly by Timothée Chalamet. Packed with drama and action, the warring universe of hostile planets, and the bleak landscape of the most dangerous planet in the universe combine for a fascinating cinematic journey.


Where: Netflix

Overlooked by some because of its release at the peak of the pandemic, Extraction is Hollywood’s take on the dark world of illegal cartels and syndicates that run in the Indo-Bangladesh region. Chris Hemsworth hammers home a powerful performance as a black-market mercenary, as he comfortably throws in a line or two in Bengali! Did we mention that you will enjoy the familiar faces of Randeep Hooda and Pankaj Tripathi in this movie?

The Matrix Resurrection

The iconic Matrix series was revived last year, with the dependable cast of Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss, and Laurence Fishburne at the helm.
