Upcoming Films Announcement! Thank You Taran Adarsh!!!!

If y’all don’t follow Taran on twitter, you should. He does all this really basic reporting before anyone else gets it out there. It’s a one stop shop for the news you need.

I’m just gonna repost Taran’s lists and then say which ones I am excited about and you can say what you are excited about in the comments and also “what the heck is that one?” and “oh wow, I forgot that was even happening”.

Sooryavanshi is an Akshay movie, which is ick, but is also Rohit Shetty, which is YAAAAAY. Plus, the whole concept of a Hero Cop Multiverse intrigues me and this is supposed to bring together Ranveer’s Simmba and Ajay’s Singham, along with Akshay.

BuntyAurBabli 2, I just don’t know! I am worried! I love the original soooooooooooo much, but the cast for this one is really good, Rani and Saif and Siddhant Chaturvadi.

’83, I just want it to be OVER already! Feels like half my life has been spent watching promos for that dang movie.

Jersey is Shahid, so I would be excited, but Angie saw the Telugu original and said it was stupid, so now I am not.

Radhe Shyam is another attempt at a big crossover Prabhas hit. I predict stupid entertainment that may or may not actually make money.

Laal Singh Chaddha, booooooooo! NO ONE WANTS ANOTHER AAMIR KHAN MESSAGE MOVIE!!! Just you wait, this will turn out to be my favorite film of the year, I always predict wrong on these things.

Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a Ranveer movie that looks like it might be fun, and it’s a glossy Yash Raj release which I always appreciate. Mostly I am excited because it is a Ranveer movie that is NOT gosh darn ’83.

The Vikram Vedha remake doesn’t even have a firm cast, last I saw was Saif and Hrithik, so it is a bit cocky to announce the release date already!

  1. The only movie that seems sort of exciting to me right now is Bunty Aur Babli 2 but even with that I’m kinda disappointed that they couldn’t bring back Abhishek for the sequel instead of Saif.

    • Yeah, one of my big take aways from this list is how important proper PR is. If you give me rumors about the plot, and then casting announcements, and then photos from the set, and then first look,a nd then posters, and then trailers, and then songs, I will get all amped!!!! But these movies were first announced soooooooooooooooooo long ago, I’ve lost all my excitement.

      • Yes exactly! I need more than just having the release date. Also a lot of these movies are movies that I barely remember being announced. Was jayeshbhai jordaar the one that Ranveer is doing with Maneesh Sharma?

  2. Also I thought Jersey was really good and Nani was really good in it. I did think the plot was kinda silly but it still felt like it was a movie with a lot of heart. Not to mention that the music by Anirudh was amazing as well

  3. I think I’ve never meet another Jersey hater. In my opinion the movie is stupid and pointless but everybody loves it and I don’t understand why. Nani is good and has some emotional scenes but who cares if in the end his journey doesn’t have any sense? I almost want you to watch it and tell me if it’s the world or me who’s wrong.

    I’m shocked to see No Means No on the list. It’s a terrible polish-indian movie, with one of the worst trailers I have ever seen (The worst remains always RGV’s lesbian “film”). Why are they releasing it and on Diwali?

    • Oh weird, a Polish-Indian film released on Diwali? Maybe they thought it would be the best date to get anyone at all to watch it/any theater to run it?

      • I can’t imagine who in their right mind would pay to watch this movie on Diwali or on every other occasion. But I admire makers’ attitude: they decided to release it and put it between Sooryavanshi and Bunty anu Babli.

        In other news I’m surprised Brahmastra isn’t on the list. Did they shelved it eventually or are they just ashamed of announcing it again?

        • Oh YES! I was going to mention that and I forgot. I’m going with “so humiliated at this point that they aren’t risking another announcement”. And I think this list does have films from Alia, Amitabh, and Ranbir. So even the star cast has moved on to other projects.

  4. I think I agree with all of your feelings. I just don’t know if the Simmba/Singham franchise needs to continue until they run out of names that start with S, but those movies are super fun. But I love Ajay and Ranveer and that might have had something to do with it.

    And speaking of Ranveer, I too will be sitting out 83. It’s been in the works too long, it’s sports biopic, and I can’t get behind his hair. The marks the point where I am no longer a Ranveer completist.

    Also worried about BaB2, but of course it won’t be as good as the original.

    Do you know what No Means No is? Sounds like yet another sexual violence movie.

    Like

    • I just looked up No Means No, and it is another sexual violence movie. And by golly it really is a Polish-Indian production! I feel like we should watch it in solidarity with Angie, but it also looks really bad.

      Not just Ranveer, all the hair in ’83! Sometimes historical accuracy is not a good thing.

      • Nobody should watch No Means No. I’m already second hand embarrassed that this movie exist. It looks like those bad polish movies from 90′ and 00′ I was forced to watch because there was nothing better in theaters and tv.

  5. 2 important additions to the list:

    Natyam (telugu dance movie I’ve been waiting for months) – 22 October
    Gangubai Kathiawadi – 6 January

    If the dates remain like they are we will have interesting December /January because there will be a big movie every week. And it’s only hindi. We must add Mahesh Babu new movie (January 13th) and Ajith’s Valimai (January 14th). I’m not sure Radhe Shyam can make it. Maybe they should have chose other date.

    • Sheesh, I’m gonna be busy!!!! I hope they keep playing at lots of theaters so I can manage to see them all. Oooo, I could do two shows on a Saturday! Go old school! I love doing that.
