Make the most of your weekend with these new releases

Midway May has a lineup of pretty big new releases that are highly awaited. From theatrical releases to OTT — this weekend seems packed if movie night is what you need. 

New releases to watch this week


Kangana Ranaut as Agent Agni is a merciless killing machine. From the trailer, the film looks intense and bloody, where Agent Agni has set out to catch Arjun Rampal’s Rudraveer, who runs a human trafficking racket. With high voltage action sequences and all things blood and gore, the trailer hardly features any dialogue. Directed by Razneesh Ghai, Dhaakad stars Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta and Saswata Chatterjee.

Release date: May 20, 2022
