- Bareilly Ki Barfi is a love triangle directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari
- Dhanush and Kajol's VIP 2 Tamil version released last week
- Gurinder Chadha's Partition: 1947 also releases today
Meanwhile, Raghuvaran is back. Dhanush's Velaiilla Pattadhari 2is releasing in Hindi (as Lalkar) today. Dhanush plays civil engineer Raghuvaran, who is an employee in the company of smart and conniving Vasundhara, played by Kajol. Obviously, Raghuvaran and Vasundhara's ideology do not match and all hell breaks loose. The film is directed by Dhanush's sister-in-law Soundarya Rajinikanth and it is produced by Dhanush. The film's Tamil version released last week and rocked the box office in a week.
The other big release of the day is Gurinder Chadha's Partition: 1947 (which released as Viceroy's House in English). The film is a retelling of the tale of India's partition through the perspective of the workers at India's last viceroy Lord Mountbatten's residence. The film stars Huma Qureshi and Manish Dayal along with British actors Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson and Michael Gambon.
