Le Mans ’66
A movie about men and machines, Le Mans ’66, is inspired by a true story of two car enthusiasts as they built a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company. The movie showcases the tussle for victory between the two motor giants, Ferrari and Ford, but instead of focusing on the rivalry, the story highlights the personal battles that Matt Damon (Shelby) and Christian Bale (Miles) face. The movie beautifully showcases gripping race sequences, battles against corporate resistance, and the emotional journey of each character. If you think this one is just for motorheads, you’ll be proven quite wrong as the movie has so much more to offer.

Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal
Based on the third battle of Panipat between the Marathas and the King of Afghanistan, the movie has wonderfully recreated this epic tale of battle, love and betrayal. The lead actors match up to the audience’s expectations, while the storyline, though based on facts, provides the right amount of suspense as alliances are formed, strategies made, and all prepare for the final battle. The final battleground scene forms a very important part of the movie and its commendable cinematography, direction and acts are worth the praise.
Running time: 180 minutes
Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Sanjay Dutt
