Festive season and Diwali vacations bring us an array of great movies and 2018 is going to end with a big fat celebration. You can be a fan of Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar or Ranveer Singh, the good news is, they ALL have winter 2018 releases that are unmissable! Here are top five upcoming movies you just can’t miss in the festive days that follow.
Thugs of Hindostan – 8th November
The creator of Dhoom 3, Vijay Krishna Acharya, teams up once again with actors Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif to bring us Thugs of Hindostan along with the superstar Amitabh Bachchan! This massive project plans on giving us a “larger than life” experience on the silver screen while bringing forth the Yash Raj magic.
This Diwali release has been shot on the island of Malta and promises intense action sequences, dramatic sets, great music and epic adventure on the sea. We’re already head over heels about the “Suraiya” song where Katrina is shaking a leg while Aamir Khan ogles away. We can’t blame him, can we?
Also, this is the very first time the audience will see Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan share the big screen, which is an attractive deal for the audience too.
2.0 – 29th November
Indian cinema is not really known for its Science fiction films but the 2010 experiment Robot (Enthiran) starring Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai was a dream project that turned out to be a huge success. This led to the making of its sequel 8 years later that will star Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar!
The stakes get higher in 2.0 as Chitti is rebooted and updated just to fight an evil that poses a threat to new age technology aka smartphones! The trailer also reveals Dr. Vaseegaran’s new invention, a female robot that is played by Amy Jackson.
It’s been a while since Akshay Kumar has played the antagonist, that too in a sci-fi film. This is going to be an interesting watch.
Kedarnath – 7th December
The director of movies like Rock On and Kai Po Che, Abhishek Kapoor, comes with yet another huge project called Kedarnath that will star Sushant Singh Rajput and present, for the very first time, Sara Ali Khan.
Based on the background of the 2013 cloudburst in Kedarnath that led to floods, this drama is a cross-cultural love story amidst a Hindu girl and a Muslim boy. According to the teaser, the girl is a Hindu pilgrim who gets caught up in the floods and is then saved by a Muslim pithoo (a guide who ferries tourists on their back) leading to a love story.
Even though this is a fiction film, a few Hindu priests and locals of the pilgrimage location are already protesting against the film. Let’s hope all works out for the best because we can’t wait to finally watch newbie Sara Ali Khan on the big screen.
Zero – 21st December
Vertically challenged yet charming, (because duh it’s Shahrukh after all) Zero has an unconventional protagonist that will make for an intriguing storyline. He’s called Bauua Singh, a witty, funny and pompous man who’s born in a well-protected environment all his life in the city of Meerut. His life turns upside down when he meets two women, leading him to an all-new purpose of life.
Starring Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, this grand affair is all set to attract the audience with its multi-starrer celebration. But we saw a little teaser a few months ago that revealed Salman Khan’s special appearance in a song with Shahrukh, and it’s all too obvious that this amazing camaraderie is not worth missing!
Quadruple bonanza is what we’re calling Zero, who’s excited?
Simmba – 28th December
Though the teaser and trailer of this magnum opus are yet to release, we know a Dharma production and a Rohit Shetty film cannot let us down. To top that, adding the extra zest in this film is the ever-tenacious Ranveer Singh and the gorgeous Sara Ali Khan. Think we’d miss that for anything? Hell no.
What we gather so far, is that the story is based on a corrupt cop who finds the right way after falling in love with a simple yet beautiful girl. Being a Rohit Shetty project, we expect comedy, action, drama and full-on entertainment from Simmba.
If the behind the scenes Instagram posts and stories are to go by, this film is going to be beyond fabulous!
