The world is slowly but surely finding hints of solace and a renewed form of normalcy as the pandemic subsides, giving way for things that were previously on hold to find their way back into our routines. This includes cinema releases too, of course, and what better way to ensure we’re getting back on track than heading to our once-abandoned theatres to get our dose of entertainment? With that in mind, we’re back with ‘Films This Friday,’ and we have four releases from which you can pick. Here we go:
This is for all the folks who have been waiting on the edge of their seats for an action-thriller. Death Hunt is a Canadian film about a developer and his mistress who are taken hostage and are then hunted for sport by a group of men.
The directorial helm is Neil Mackay’s and the screenplay is by Sean McAulay, who has also co-written this rather intriguing narrative.
The film stars names like Rick Amsbury, Marlene Malcolm, Greg Johnston, Frank Ieraci, Omar Tucci, Peter Lewis, and Michael Coughlan, among others.
A full-on desi release, Jatt Brothers is a Punjabi film that has been directed by Manav Shah. It features Guri, Jass Manak, Nikeet Dhillon, and Anita Devgan in the lead roles. The film also stars Ashish Duggal and Harpal Singh.
The plot revolves around a pair of best friends that end up competing with each other to win over a pair of women.
Given that there’s plenty of room for mayhem and mischief, this could be a fun, entertaining watch for sure.

Directed by Khalid Kidwai who has also written the script, and co-produced by Khursheed Rizvi, the plot seems to find notes of relatability, shedding light on the issues of your everyday middle class/upper middle class Pakistani household.
Made under the banner of the US-based Whisper Films in collaboration with D’ Max Studios, the film stars Shahood Alvi, Inayat Khan, and Kesha Siddiqui.
Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures are back with another animated coming-of-age tale that revolves around Mei Lee, a 13-year-old girl who can’t seem to find a middle ground between being an obedient daughter, or dealing with being a teenager. Here’s the kicker: if she gets too excited, she turns into a big, red panda.
Featuring the voices of Rosalie Chiang, Sandra Oh, Ava Morse, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Hyein Park, Orion Lee, Wai Ching Ho, and James Hong, this is definitely a movie that one can watch with their family for some cute, wholesome fun.
