Raman Raghav 2.0 – 24th June, 2016

This brilliant movie directed by none other than Anurag Kashyap, releases on the 24th of June, 2016. We cannot wait any longer to see the fantastic acting skills of this power house performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It is based on the notorious serial killer Raman Raghav who operated in Mumbai during the mid-1960s.  Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the title character, while Vicky Kaushal plays the role of a cop in the film.

Sultan – July 2016

Salman Khan starrer ‘Sultan’ has already created a lot of buzz with its movie posters, trailers, quirky songs and blatant comments. What is most striking is his pairing with Anushka Sharma, and their on-screen chemistry is worth waiting for. It is about Sultan Ali Khan, a wrestler who has problems in his professional and personal life. From a small town wrestler in Haryana, Sultan achieves global fame winning bouts at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the 2011 FILA Wrestling World Championships in Istanbul and the 2012 London Olympics. The film also stars ace actor Randeep Hooda portraying Sultan Ali Khan’s coach.

Dhishoom – July 2016

Varun Dhawan and John Abraham gave us some major swag goals with their poster that was earlier launched. The film is said to have a ton of high octane bike stunts, for which bikes have been imported from Germany and London! This movie is about an Indian top batsman who goes missing in the Middle East and two cops set out on a 36 hour man hunt. Directed by Rohit Dhawan, the film also stars Jacqueline Fernandes, Nargis Fakhri. Actor Akshaye Khanna will also be seen making a comeback after a long time.

Mohenjo Daro – August 2016

Set in the era of Indus Valley Civilization, this movie revolves around the story of a man who falls in love with his enemy’s daughter. With Ashutosh Gowarikar as the director of this movie and AR Rahman as the music composer, this movie is expected to be filled with grandeur and sheer splendor. In fact, the pairing of Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde will be a surprise for all of us.

Rustom – August 2016

Rustom features Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’Cruz in the lead roles. Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, the movie is based on real life incident of Naval Officer K.M. Nanavati. The film also stars Arjan Bajwa and Esha Gupta.

A Flying Jatt – August 2016

After a long time, Bollywood will see a superhero flick that is being directed by choreographer turned director, Remo D’Souza. This movie stars Tiger Shroff, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nathan Jones (professional wrestler) in lead roles. Shroff is playing the role of a superhero and Fernandez will be playing his love interest in the film. The movie also stars Amrita Singh and Kay Kay Menon.

Jagga Jasoos – August 2016

It’s been a while for this movie, that’s been getting delayed for all sorts of reasons. It was supposed to release in November 2015, but looks like this will eventually see the light of day in August, 2016. Directed by Anurag Basu, there have been a lot of rumours around the film, including that the film has been shelved altogether and that Katrina and Anurag Basu have a lot of creative differences. After getting through so many hurdles, let’s see how the movie fares with the audience. This film revolves around a young detective searching for his missing father. The cast of this movie also includes Adah Sharma and Sayani Gupta.

Akira – September 2016

The film is the remake of 2011 Tamil film Mouna Guru. Produced by AR Murugadoss and Fox Star Studios, the action thriller stars Sonakshi Sinha, Konkona Sen Sharma, Anurag Kashyap, Amit Sadh, Raai Laxmi and Shatrughan Sinha. This will be the first time that we will see the father-daughter duo on screen.

Baar Baar Dekho – September 2016

Starring Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra together for the first time, the movie is somewhat based on time travel, an ageing romance spanning over 30 odd years. This is also the first time that Karan Johar’s Dharma Production is collaborating with Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment.  Honestly, it’s a very unique pairing and it will be really interesting to see Sidharth and Katrina romance each other.

M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story – September 2016

movie 10

This Sushant Singh Rajput starrer is going to be a great gift for all Mahi fans. This biopic tells the tale of current Indian cricket team’s captain, MS Dhoni. Kiara Advani plays the role of his wife Sakshi Dhoni. The initial look of the movie looks amazing and Sushant has done a great job playing Dhoni which has further raised our excitement level. In fact, Fawad Khan and Ram Charan will be seen in the roles of Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina. Do you remember Salman’s lady love from ‘Tere Naam’, Bhoomika Chawla? Guess what! She will play Dhoni’s mother in this film.

Pink – September 2016

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and produced by Shoojit Sircar and Rashmi Sharma, Pink is going to be a super interesting flick that stars Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang. The combination of Shoojit Sircar and Amitabh Bachchan has earlier given us a really brilliant movie and we simply can’t wait for this one.

Manmarziyan – September 2016

We will yet again see the beautiful chemistry between Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in their latest movie, Manmarziyan, directed by  Sameer Sharma. The film will be a love story set in Punjab, where Bhumi will play the role of a Punjabi girl, while Ayushmann will play a Punjabi Munda in the movie. It will also star Vicky Kaushal of the Masaan fame, who will play the third lead in this love triangle where he will be seen romancing Bhumi.

Rangoon – October 2016

We can’t help but be excited about this one. This the first time that Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor are starring together in a film, you know, given their equation with Kareena Kapoor. Apart from that, what also works for the movie is the fact that it’s a period romantic drama flick, set during World War II.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil – October 2016

movie 13

There are a lot of things going for this flick. First of all, it’s got an amazing star cast. Ranbir Kapoor teams up with Aishwarya Rai for the first time ever, which should be quite interesting to see. But if that wasn’t enough, even Fawad Khan and Anushka Sharma are in on it. The film will also see Saif Ali Khan making a cameo appearance.

Shivaay – October 2016

Another interesting release is ‘Shivaay’ that features Ajay Devgn and newcomer Sayyeshaa Saigal making her debut opposite him. This movie is directed and produced by Ajay Devgn under his banner Ajay Devgn FFilms. The movie also stars Vir Das. This is Ajay Devgn’s highest budgeted film to this date.

Mirzya – October 2016

Mirzya is a romantic drama film co-produced by Cinestaan Film Company and ROMP Pictures. The film is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, starring Anil Kapoor’s son,  Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher in lead roles along with Om Puri, Art Malik, K.K. Raina and Anuj Choudhry in pivotal roles. The film is set in rural Rajasthan and has action-packed sequences. We are now eagerly waiting to see the acting prowess of this Kapoor lad.

Rock On!! 2 – November 2016

Set in the beautiful hills of Shillong, Rock On!! 2 will hit the screens in November, 2016. While the old cast will reprise their roles sans Luke Kenny, Arjun Rampal and Shraddha Kapoor are the latest addition to the film’s cast. We just cannot contain our excitement anymore.

Kahaani 2 – November 2016

Kahaani left everyone awestruck by the brilliant acting of Vidya and the super mysterious movie plot and we cannot get enough of it. Sensing this, Sujoy Ghosh is gearing up to release Kahaani 2 in November, 2016, which will also feature Arjun Rampal. We wonder what is in store for us this time around.

Befikre – December 2016

If there is one film which can be rightly called one of the most-awaited films of this year then that has to be Ranveer Singh-Vaani Kapoor starrer ‘Befikre’, directed by none other than Aditya Chopra. It is currently being shot in the city of love, Paris. We are keenly looking forward to this romantic saga and cannot wait any longer to see this epic romantic drama.

Dangal – December 2016

The later part of 2016 has a lot in store of Aamir Khan fans as well! He plays wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who trained his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat in wrestling in real life. Both of them have brought laurels to our nation at many international sports tournaments. TV actress Sakshi Tanwar plays Khan’s wife, Daya Kaur, and is, of course, her big break.
