So arguably the most anticipated movie of 2015, the awesome Avengers: Age of Ultron, has already released and we’ve only just hit May. But summer’s only just begun which means we’ve only just got started. Here are the most exciting Bollywood movies lined up for the rest of the summer and what makes them exciting (to me!):



Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone

Directed by: Shoojit Sircar

Because Shoojit Sircar is back and Irrfan-Deepika could be the quirkiest romantic pairing this year.

MAY 15

Bombay Velvet

Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar

Directed by: Anurag Kashyap

Because with that cast and the music by Amit Trivedi and with Kashyap at its helm, this is easily my most anticipated film of the year now.

MAY 22

Tanu Weds Manu Returns

Starring: Kangana Ranaut, Kangana Ranaut, R Madhavan

Directed by: Aanand L Rai

Because one Kangana is awesome and two Kanganas is THE BEST THING EVER.


Dil Dhadakne Do

Starring: Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Farhan Akhtar, Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah

Directed by: Zoya Akhtar

Because with a star cast that awesome and a trailer that fun, and a director so brilliant, this could be the Bollywood film of the year.


Hamari Adhuri Kahaani

Starring: Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi

Directed by: Mohit Suri

Because Vidya Balan is the only reason you need, although I’m really not sure about the rest of the cast and crew.


ABCD 2 (3D)

Starring: Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhu Deva

Directed by: Remo D’Souza

Because the trailer in 3D actually looks like quite a blast.



Starring: Athiya Shetty, Sooraj Pancholi, Govinda

Directed by: Nikhil Advani

Because this has been the most talked reboot starring two star kids, since Saawariya.



Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Starring: Salman Khan, Kareena  Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Directed by: Kabir Khan

Because Kabir Khan is the only director who can make a Salman Khan movie cool.


JULY  31


Starring: Ritesh Deshmukh, Pulkit Samrat, Jacqueline Fernandez

Directed by: Karan Anshuman

Because the poster, name and cast is super fun and if it could match the spirit of a Four Lions, this could be a load of fun!



Starring: Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Tabu, Rajat Kapoor

Directed by: Nishikant Kamat

Because of Nishikant Kamat, otherwise really not excited to find out what Ajay Devgn will bring to *another* South remake.




Starring: Akshay Kumar, Siddharth Malhotra, Jackie Shroff

Directed by: Karan Malhotra

Because the original movie that this is a reboot of, Warriors, is an incredible film so fingers crossed, although hard to trust anything with Akshay Kumar attached.



All is Well

Starring: Abhishek Bachchan, Asin, Rishi Kapoor, Supriya Pathak

Directed by: Umesh Shukla

Because Umesh Shukla’s OMG was very well done and it would be interesting to see Abhishek Bachchan finally getting a good director to work with.




Starring: Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif

Directed by: Kabir Khan

Because Kabir Khan again, with another movie, with another Khan, could either be a double treat or… hmm, let’s just hope it’s that.
