This weekend, hit the movies if you are a fan of Shahid Kapoor, as he has returned to the big screen after three years. His much-delayed film Jersey is finally out. But if you’re planning to stay home as the number of coronavirus cases rises again, I’d recommend watching Guilty Minds on Amazon Prime Video.
Jersey: At the cinema
A remake of the 2019 Telugu film of the same name, Jersey traces the life of a father who is ready to do anything to fulfill his son’s dreams and a loving husband who goes out of his way to save his marriage from ruin. The film is referred to as an ’emotional journey’ by many. Shubhra Gupta of Indian Express gave it a 2.5 star rating. He wrote in his review, “The film starring Shahid Kapoor-Mrunal Thakur has all the elements of an inspiring sports drama. The film comes to life in the sequence between Shahid and his real-life father who plays his undying coach and mentor. Pankaj Kapoor puts on a beautiful and relaxing show.”

Oh My Dog: Amazon Prime Videos
The Suriya-produced film, streamed on Amazon Prime Video, is about the close bond between a boy and his pet dog. Actor Arun Vijay, his father Vijayakumar and his 11 year old son Arnav play key roles in the film. Manoj Kumar R of Indianexpress.com reviewed it and wrote, “Oh My Dog isn’t just about abandoned puppies finding love. It’s about people who are considered weak standing up for themselves and sticking to the big guys. Director Sarov Shanmugam doesn’t just rely on Husky’s cuteness to captivate us and bring the film to the finish line. There’s a strong moral story to take home.”
