Summers – which are mostly associated with scorching heat and trickling sweat – do bring along with them a big baggage of fun things to be done. Schools are shut down due to the soaring temperature and what better way to cool yourself than watching a movie? Here’s a list of 5 movies you can forward to this summer, that will help you beat the heat:
Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba of ‘Teen Thee Bhai’ fame doesn’t have star value but does look quite promising. Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, the movie revolves around four friends — Hunny (Pulkit Samrat), Zafar (Ali Fazal), Choocha ( Varun Sharma) and Lali (Manjot Singh). The four fun-loving college students want to make it big in life and don`t mind adopting shortcuts for achieving their goals. Going by the trailer of the movie, ‘Fukrey’ looks like a fun watch and has a fresh feel to it, which will undoubtedly appeal to the youngsters. The songs of the movie – especially ‘Ambarsariya’ by Sona Mahapatra – have already started topping the charts. The movie is slated to release on June 14.
Directed by Anand L. Rai, the movie revolves around a boy who is in love with a girl since his teenage. Starring ‘Kolaveri di’ fame Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor, the movie has been shot in the beautiful and religious backdrop of Varanasi.

The look, feel, songs and Vidya Balan’s disastrous costumes make it worth waiting for. The movie will wow the audiences on June 28.
