After several delays following the #MeToo controversy, Vikas Bahl retains the director's seat. Based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, Hrithik essays this titular role which also marks his first ever biopic project. A big plus for the film is that its trailer has garnered a positive response from the audiences.

Before you grab tickets to catch a movie this week, Here is everything you need to know about these new releases.
Super 30 is a biographical drama based on a commoner from Bihar named Anand Kumar, a mathematics geek from a poor family who trains the deserving under-privileged IIT aspirants on his own. From what we witness from the trailer is that Hrithik steps in the shoes of this simple character convincingly covering all the nuances and mannerism of a common man. Challenging a major stereotype that only a King's son can become a king, Hrithik's character is on a mission to prove that even the poor man can create some of the world's biggest genius minds. He starts a training program named 'Super 30' to guide 30 IIT aspirants crack the entrance test and make them achieve their dream. Mrinal Thakur is the female lead.
Yesterday is a musical comedy revolving around the lead character Jack Malik, played by Himesh Patel, a musician who meets with an accident. When he wakes up, he realizes that he is the only person on the planet who remembers The Beatles and their songs and is confused about this situation. He decides to take advantage of the situation and impress his love interest Ellie Appleton, played by Lily James. Seizing this opportunity, Jack launches his own music label by plagiarising the legendary music band`s songs leading to a fun entertaining ride for the audiences. Some of the cult hits of the famous rock band like Here Comes the Sun, Yesterday, Let It Be, Hey Jude and so on are included in the film. An interesting cameo is that of Ed Sheeran who plays himself in this musical fantasy. Receiving raving reviews from various film festivals and several publications, Yesterday might just cater to its niche audience quite well.
