People love watching movies in theatres. There’s something about the big screen that appeals to everyone. Try as you might, you cannot match the theatre-viewing experience at home. Even if you install a gigantic screen, the sound won’t be the same. And if the sound is sorted, the ambiance with the dimmed lights will be missing, as will the cheesy popcorn and coke and the other menu items you can order nowadays sitting in the comfort of your seat. Watching a movie in a theatre is a different experience. And this week, some impeccable movies are releasing. From the dramedy in Kuttey to Bala Krishna’s action-filled Veera Simha Reddy, the movies this week are of extreme genres that will keep you entertained! Here are some movies that are slated to release in theatres this week. Check them out!
