Shining on the big screen

Pad Man: On January 26, Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man is to be released and there are a lot of hopes from the movie. It is the heart-warming saga of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who manufactured economical sanitary napkins even at the risk of being belittled. Pad Man has been directed by R. Balki.

Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety: This one is a 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.

Hichki: 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. Release date is February 23.

Sanjay Dutt’s biopic: Ranbir Kapoor playing Sanjay Dutt in a film directed by Raj Kumar Hirani is something to look forward to. Verdict is on March 30.

October: Titled October, but releasing in April, this Shoojit Sircar film is sure a must-watch.

Veere Di Wedding: The sheer joy of watching a gallery of interesting actresses navigated by Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor is enough reason to give this ‘chic-flick’ a run for its money. Release date is May 18.

Fanne Khan: A famous singer played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan kidnapped by the father (Anil Kapoor) of a wannabe singer, this one releases on June 15.

Gold: 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 in hockey at the 1948 Olympics.

Super 30: The arithmetic genius, Anand Kumar, will be brought to life on screen by Hrithik Roshan in this movie that releases on November 23.

Zero: Aanand L. Rai gets together with Shah Rukh Khan for a game-changer titled Zero, which will be released in December 21.

And then, of course, there is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat(i)!
