Directed by R. Balki, Padman is all set to tickle our funny bones on this Republic Day by its quirky and different content. Film starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor looks quite promising. Padman is a comedy-drama which is based on the life of a social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham. This man revolutionized the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine. With Akshay’s humour and Balki’s touch, this film will prove to be one-of-its-kind.
Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety
Luv Ranjan is a director who gets into the head and the bed of the young without acting like a twit of a director. His remarkable proclivity for youthful candour is in full view in this wackily-titled rom-com where Sonu's (Kartik Aaryan) over-possessive best friend Titu (Sunny Singh) gets a girlfriend Sweety (Nushrat Bharucha). It's a lip-smacking bromance versus romance on February 9.
For my money and time, Rani Mukerji doing the role of a teacher with a neurological disability is just what the doctors prescribed. This official remake of a little-known American film Front Of The Class is the kind of inspirational story we all need in our lives. The release date is February 23.
Padmavat (Releasing Date Undecided)
This is the film we all waited for in 2017. But unfortunately, this magnum opus didn’t see the light of the day then. But the good news is that CBFC has finally seen the film and has suggested a few cuts to which Sanjay Leela Bhansali has agreed to! Based on true events, Padmavat which was earlier Padmavati, is a story of Rani Padmavati which is essayed by Deepika Padukone. The film also has Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. Ever since, it was in the shooting stage, it left us all excited to watch it on a big screen. And now finally, the film has got a green signal from the censors. Though, the release date has not been announced yet!
Sanjay Dutt's biopic
Ranbir Kapoor playing Sanjay Dutt in a film directed by Raj Kumar Hirani is not quite my idea of an inspirational biopic. Nonetheless, this one is of interest for us to know what mistakes one can make in the journey of life. So this can be taken as an inspirational film in reverse. The verdict is on March 30.
Thugs Of Hindostan (November 7, 2018)
Written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, this film is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug. This is another big film we are waiting for! Film stars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sanya Shaikh, do we need anymore reasons to watch the film? Thugs Of Hindostan will be a great film to look forward to as both the perfectionists are coming together. With this, entertainment is guaranteed!
Veere Di Wedding
The sheer joy of watching a gallery of interesting female actors navigated by Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor is enough reason to give this 'chic-flick' a run for its money. The release date is May 18.
A famous singer played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan kidnapped by the father (Anil Kapoor) of a wannabe singer -- an extremely unusual premise and a solid project to bring together Aishwarya and Anil Kapoor after Taal. Directed by debutant Atul Manjrekar, this remake of a Belgian film promises something unusual. The release date is June 15.
If Akshay Kumar owns Republic Day, he also exercises a quasi-copyright over the Independence Day week. On August 15, comes Gold, a film recreating India's historic win for hockey at the 1948 Olympics.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero is yet another big film we are waiting for in 2018! With stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, the film already looks grand. After building a lot of curiosity, the makers finally released the first look and the title of the film. We must say that SRK as a dwarf just stole of our heart! Not only this, we have more reasons to eagerly wait for this flick. We will also see a special appearance of Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Kajol, Sridevi, Rani Mukherji, Alia Bhatt, Karisma Kapoor and Juhi Chawla in the film. Amazing, isn’t it?
