Gabbar Is Back Tara HD, Astro Ch 108, 9pm
Ten tax officers across Maharashtra state are kidnapped and then suddenly freed, except for one: the most corrupt, who is hanged in public. A vigilante named Gabbar takes credit, saying he is targeting corrupt officers. A police driver thinks he can crack the case, but is mocked by his superior officers. Meanwhile, a professor exposes corrupt practices at a private hospital and this puts him in the crosshairs of a powerful construction magnate, Digvijay Patil. How does this tie in to the exploits of Gabbar? Ah, that would be telling. This remake of the acclaimed 2002 Tamil film Ramanaa did not receive the same plaudits as its inspiration, but should be good for some thrills. Cast: Akshay Kumar, Shruti Haasan, Suman Talwar and Sunil Grover.
