Well-made though a little slow in parts, this film has an emotional quotient and appeal.

Title: Chhorii

At last, a horror film that actually sends shivers down your spine rather than make you laugh as most films in this genre tend to do.

A compelling political saga that keeps you engrossed until the very end, Republic stars Sai Dharam Teja. It’s about a man who relentlessly takes up cudgels for the farmers of his village against a corrupt politician and the system. Well, the plot may seem similar to hundreds of other films released before, but the treatment and nuanced performances from the cast place this film way higher above the others.
