New TV Shows & Movies Releasing This Weekend (27-January)
1. An Action Hero
This film is an action thriller, as is clear from the title. It is about “an action hero” named Maanav Khurrana, a popular figure among young people. Ayushmann Khurrana’s Maanav won the hearts of millions of fans before he was forced to go into hiding due to an accident he sustained while filming in Haryana. He takes a flight to London and moves there, but his history soon finds him and upends his current way of life. Thus, the cat-and-mouse game starts, increasing the entertainment value of this thriller movie written and directed by Anirudh Iyer.
An ambitious IPS officer is the focus of the action-thriller series Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke, which will premiere on this Republic Day. Regina Cassandra will play Kavya Iyer, the main character, who is a single mother and a well-known IPS officer. Because of her bravery and psychological fortitude, she has completed several difficult tasks successfully. The inquiry into the ISIS-K bombing, however, is the most perilous mission she has ever undertaken. She must cope not just with the threat of terrorist attacks but also with that posed by Naxalite insurgencies in the nation’s northeast. Will she be able to protect both her squad and the country?

This week sees the debut of the intriguing Tamil-language emotional drama Ayali on ZEE5. The plot revolves around Tamizhselvi, a young girl who pursues her dream of becoming a doctor despite prevailing rules and traditions.
It is difficult to achieve this, though, because she lives in Veerappannai, a very isolated community where women are solely considered suitable for domestic work. In her village, women have unintentionally been oppressed, and no one has ever attempted to dispute, alter, or overcome this. Will she be able to overcome the dreaded and cherished traditions and conventions in order to achieve her dream?
The lead actors in the Telugu movie 18 Pages are Nikhil Siddhartha and Anupama Parameswaran. The romantic comedy, written by Sukumar and directed by Palnati Surya Pratap, centres around Siddhu, a young tech specialist, and Nandini, a stunning young woman suffering from short-term memory loss.
Despite her condition, Nandini maintains a notebook, which Siddhu unintentionally comes across while driving. After reading Nandini’s diary, which is only “18 pages,” Siddhu develops feelings for her and resolves to search for this enigmatic young woman. Will he be able to track her down, and will she share her feelings for him?
Jennifer Lopez plays Darcy in the romantic comedy-action film Shotgun Wedding, which also stars Josh Duhamel as Tom. The couple decides to have a lavish vacation wedding on a stunning island. With exception of a few hiccups brought on by the beloved but extremely opinionated families of the bride and the groom, the wedding festivities are going smoothly. Darcy and Tom had second thoughts, as do many other couples, and while they try to sort things out, crooks hijack the wedding, holding their family hostage. To preserve their loved ones, the couple will now have to work together.
