Haseen Dillruba

Netflix’s latest offering, Haseen Dillruba, has, similar to the plot, a title which throws you off scent. A murder mystery, it has in one of the first scenes, Taapsee Pannu’s Rani Kashyap asking the guy who has come to her house hunting for a bride, if has read Dinesh Pandit’s thrillers. He is wonderful with the way he spins the most devious of stories setting them in some of the smallest Indian towns. The man  Rishu (Vikrant Massey) has never heard of Pandit, but he will.

Fatherhood

Fatherhood opens with Matthew Logelin ( Hart) standing in a church podium completely devastated by his young wife’s death just hours after their baby girl, Maddy, is born. He utters “This sucks”. Based on Logelin’s 2011 bestseller, Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love, Weitz’s (Grandma, About A Boy) work is a tender tale of how a young father grapple with bringing up his infant girl, juggling with his demanding corporate job.
