#Piku (Hindi) Rating: * * ½ Simple , quaint, quirky and reasonably entertaining. That’s ‘Piku,’ basically a three character dramedy that draws it’s humor from individual quirks and cultural stereotypes. #SaraswatiEntertainmentPvtLtd #MSMMotionPictures #RisingSunFilms #AmitabhBachchan #DeepikaPadukone #IrrfanKhan #ShoojitSircar #JuhiChaturvedi #RonnieLahiri #MaushamiChatterjee #JisshuSengupta #RaindropPR #EveryMediaPR
#KuchKuchLochaHai(Hindi) Rating: * * An attempted sex comedy that tries to wrest it’s laurels on Sunny Leone’s famed sex appeal. No dividends here as the narrative attempts to do too much with too little! #MaximusMultimedia #AlumbraEntertainment #MagicPicturesAndEntertainment #RamKapoor #SunnyLeone #PanoramaStudios #InfiniteExpressionsPR
#TheSpongebobMovieSpongeOutOfWater(English/animation/3D) Rating: * * Meant for Kids only. This Nickelodeon animation adventure is a little too kiddish in terms of treatment and execution so adults do be wary. #Viacom18 #TomKenny #BillFagerbakke #RodgerBumpass #ClancyBrown #CarolynLawrence #AntonioBanderas #MaryJoCatlett #CreeSummer #PaulTibbitt #MikeMitchell

Synopsis:A writer who doesn't believe in love is tasked to write a romantic comedy. But when he meets a beautiful woman at a wedding, he is forced to rethink his beliefs. The only problem: She's already engaged
Told from the point of view of a screenwriter (Chris Evans) who doesn’t believe in love anymore, Playing It Cool wants to be everything a romantic comedy can be and more. unfortunately it’s so uninteresting and boring that you would be lucky if you could just yawn your way through it’s tedious runtime.
Trying to be hip and taking the screwball romantic comedy route from time to time, this film never quite succeeds at being either – and it’s tiresome watching it make it so. The problem also lies in the casting of it. Chris Evans looks dashing in his Captain America avatar but here as an ordinary screenwriter he really has nothing much to do other than fancy around in different get-ups(mostly unbecoming ones too). He can’t get writing and is fast running out of time until he bumps into Her(Michelle Moynihan who off late has been a steady in a series of romcoms). You get to see the electricity (cheesy effects) between them but there’s a hitch. She has already settled for steady, comforting security in her fiancé and is not ready to venture out from under that comfort zone. So he, now a believer in love, sets out to convince her that they are worth it together, albeit with some ribbing and corny advice from his friends.
Chris Evans and Michelle Moynihan look ill at ease. They don’t look exciting together and neither do they have any chemistry with each other. So the premise remains limp and unbecoming. You are treated to a fancy dress changeover every time the eponymous ‘He’ gets a brainwave. a few lines might make you chuckle but the rest of it is so woebegone and tedious that you will wonder what you were watching in the first place. This romcom really doesn’t make the cut!
