The 2015 Big Summer Movie Preview – Bollywood
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
