From message movies to popcorn blockbusters to Oscar-winning dramas to a beloved non-fiction docu-drama, this week you have plenty of options to choose from. Here is a list of movies that you should not miss this weekend. 

The Whale:


Brendan Fraser's comeback film The Whale is the ultimate tear-jerker. The film tells the story of a morbidly obese man, who remained locked in his home out of sheer shame. It's a tale of a tormented soul who finally finds peace but not before taking us through an emotional rollercoaster. Fraser's performance as the obese English instructor won the Oscar for best actor. 

Gandhada Gudi:

Gandhada Gudi is streaming on Amazon Prime Video

If you are a fan of Puneeth Rajkumar, you can't miss this non-fiction docu-drama. If you are a fan of wildlife documentaries, you can't miss this film. If you are a fan of good cinema, you can't miss this film. This was Puneeth's passion project as he camps with popular wildlife filmmaker Amoghavarsha JS in the deepest parts of Karnataka's wonderful jungles. This movie is a sight for sore eyes as it brings out the lustrous and sprawling beauty of Karnataka's biodiversity. And you also get to see Puneeth on his most charming shelf.


Vaathi is streaming on Netflix.

Dhanush has made a career by swimming against the tide. While everyone seems to be gravitated towards making big blockbusters, he goes the other way. He makes simple and intimate movies that at first seem to have no shot at success in front of towering blockbusters. And yet, in the end, his films manage to stand out and stand tall. Last year it was the humble Thiruchitrambalam, a family drama, which exceeded all expectations in terms of box office collection. And this year, it's Vaathi/Sir . The film was simultaneously shot in Tamil and Telugu by Venky Atluri. And it also stars Samyuktha, P. Sai Kumar, Tanikella Bharani, Samuthirakani and Hyper Aadi in the supporting cast. Set in the 90s, the film might just charm you like it did the theatre-going audience.
