Brahmāstra, Avatar, Vikram Vedha, and More: September Movie Guide to OTT and Cinemas

Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva, led by Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, is one of the most anticipated movies gracing Indian cinema this year, filled to the brim with cosmic space-inspired CGI and an ensemble of A-list Bollywood actors. The Karan Johar-produced fantasy film is the first of a planned trilogy, and is slated to release on September 9 in theatres. To close out the month, we have Sacred Games’ Saif Ali Khan and Radhika Apte reuniting in Vikram Vedha, a remake of the Tamil film of the same name. With Hrithik Roshan co-starring, Vikram Vedha premieres on September 30 in theatres nationwide.

On the Hollywood side, James Cameron’s Academy Award-winning Avatar is getting a 4K HDR re-release, as a hype-building strategy for the long-awaited sequel, The Way of Water. The VFX-driven movie — grossing $2.874 billion (about Rs. 22,753 crore) — will have a two-week-long theatrical run, starting September 23. Over on Netflix, Ana de Armas stars in a fictionalised portrait of the late Marilyn Monroe, under Andrew Dominik’s direction. As the only film to receive an NC-17 rating this year — in India, it’s simply rated A — Blonde will premiere at the 79th Venice Film Festival, before heading over to Netflix on September 28.

Cuttputlli

When: September 2
Where: Disney+ Hotstar

An aspiring actor-turned-police officer stumbles upon a pattern of serial killings, targeting young school girls. Akshay Kumar leads the cast in this remake of the 2018 Tamil film, Ratsasan, as an aimless police officer who gets to re-enact scenes from an average crime drama, through details he researched for several auditions in the past. While the murders in Cuttputlli push the story forward, much of the focus is on sub-inspector Arjun Sethi’s personality, as he struggles to balance professionalism with the thrill of his main character syndrome.

The quaint hill station town of Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh, is put in complete lockdown, as Sethi and his team race against time to nab the killer. With solid leads piling up, the murderer’s presence rings close to home, as his family and loved ones come under the killer’s radar in a twisted turn of fate. As the name suggests, there also seems to be a recurring theme with puppets, which could be the killer’s trademark. Cuttputlli marks the second collaboration between Kumar and director Ranjit Tewari — previously Bellbottom — who directs from an adapted screenplay by Aseem Arora.

Rakul Preet Singh, Chandrachur Singh, and Sargun Mehta top out the cast for Cuttputlli, which was originally titled “Mission Cinderella.”
