Many readers fell in love with Paula Hawkins’ mystery thriller The Girl on the Train, which presented a murder and also a trio of three complicated, problematic women main characters who served as unreliable narrators.

Have you ever done something silly just to impress a partner? What about something… ILLEGAL? That’s the crux of the idea behind the movie Masterminds. The lead character is based on the real life individual David Ghantt, who was once a vault supervisor at the armor trucking company Loomis, Fargo & Co. and robbed $17 million from them in 1997.

Acclaimed Kannada editor and actor Nagendra Urs’s directorial debut Heart Beats was a critical success, so naturally audiences anticipated the release of his second directorial creation.

Although promotional trailers made Rocky look promising, the movie unfortunately falls flat on its face, ordinary for a men like him.
