This post is in continuation to the Part 1 of the February films which can be read here.

I always try to watch new films & write about them on Friday itself but somehow fail being consistent so coming up with short reviews for people who haven't seen the February releases.

1.) Striker- (Thiller/Drama)
Rating: 3 (Good)

Starring Siddharth (RDB fame), Padmapriya, Aditya Pancholi, Ankur Vikal, Anupam Kher and Seema Biswas, Striker is a thriller set in the Mumbai ghetto in the mid '80's and is based on true life accounts, it is a story about triumph of human spirit over indomitable odds. Striker is written, produced & directed by Chandan Arora who earlier made Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh (2005) & Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon (2003).

Striker starts off well but somewhere drops in between which makes it a little boring and also the theme of the film attracts a limited audience. Nevertheless, it certainly works well considering the previous work of the director. Siddharth has given a wonderful performance and the music of the film is also good in parts. "Cham Cham" sung by Sonu Nigam is brilliant and everybody should listen to it once.

2.) Click (Horror)
Rating: 2 (Average)

Starring Shreyas Talpade, Sadha & Sneha Ullal, Click is a story about haunted pictures. Directed by Sangeeth Sivan (Apna Sapna Money Money, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum), Click look very similiar to the Thai film "Shutter"

Click is a below par film which has a lot of flaws but is still watchable once. A couple of scenes do scare you and only people who have nothing better to do should watch this film.

3.) Teen Patti (Thriller)
Rating: 2.75 (Above Average)

Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley, R. Madhavan, Saira Mohan, Raima Sen and others, Teen Patti is about greed and deception. The film has a super exciting 1st half but drags down in the second half.

Super performances by all and showing underground Indian casinos works well! Direction is good too and the music is so-so. The film didn't connect well to the audiences may be because of its advanced theme, watch it if you like thrillers.

4.) My Name Is Khan
