While first half of 2014 was dominated by new stars and small budget films, second half of the year will see the film releases of big budget films featuring superstars.
All hopes are pinned upon Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’ specially after the dismal performance of Khan’s earlier release this year- ‘Jai Ho’. Co-starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the film will have Salman playing a super hero. The film has been directed by Sajid Nadiadwala and releases in theaters on 25th July.
Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty team up once again for the film’s sequel ‘Singham Returns’. The duo have delivered several 100 crore films together in the past and this action-drama has the all the trappings of a blockbuster.
We miss Rani Mukherjee. Pity that the actress doesn’t do much films now. But post wedding Mukherjee is all set to thrill her fans with a power packed performance in Pradeep Sarcar’s ‘Mardaani’ where she will play a super-cop.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali produced ‘Mary Kom’ will have Priyanka Chopra playing the famous boxer. Priyanka, who has already proved her acting prowess in films like ‘Fashion’, ‘Barfi!’ has undergone training for the role.
Aditya Roy Kapur will be seen on the big screen for the first time after the super success of ‘Aashiqui2’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ in YRF’s ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’. Kapur pairs up with the talented Parineeti Chopra in this Habib Faisal film.
Homi Adajania’s ‘Finding Fanny’ may be an English film but it has generated quite a lot of curiosity. Featuring veterans like Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur, Dimple Kapadia along with Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor, this comic film promises to be entertaining.
Katrina Kaif and Hrithik Roshan will recreate their ‘Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara’ chemistry in Siddharth Anand’s ‘Bang Bang’ which is a remake of Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starer ‘Knight and Day’.
Vishal Bhardwaj comes back with a deliciously dark film called ‘Haider’ which is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’. Featuring Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu, Irrfan Khan and Kay Kay Menon, the film’s trailer has already got a roaring response from the fans. Will Shahid and Vishal be able to recreate the magic of ‘Kaminey’ again?
Happy New Year:
Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan team up after a long gap for ‘Happy New Year’ which also features Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani in key roles. The film will be releasing during Diwali
Ajay Devgn and Yami Gautam will feature in Prabhu Deva’s ‘Action Jackson’. Ajay is a non-dancer so it will be interesting to see how Prabhu Deva makes him dance in the film.
Anurag Kashyap directed Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar in ‘Bombay Velvet’- a period film on Bombay in the 1960s. High point of the film is interestingly Karan Johar who plays a negative character in the film.
The year will end with an Aamir Khan release. Amir along with Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput will feature in ‘PK’ which is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
