#7 Jagga Jasoos (Dir: Anurag Basu, Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif)
Remember Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor together? They made only my most favourite film ever. Some of the scenes from the trailer look like Barfi got extended for a couple more hours. And, I am sure Katrina would try her best to drag it down to dust. But a girl can hope. The erstwhile love-birds split up during the shooting of this feature, so I will be watching out for those angry bird vibes, my gossip cells tingling all the while.
#8 Bahubaali 2 (Dir: SS Rajamouli, Cast: Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubatti)
Please, everyone must watch this to find out Katappa’s secret.
#9 Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (Dir: Shree Narayan Singh, Cast: Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar)
Given Akshay’s penchant for wry satire and Bhumi’s impressive performance in her debut a few years back, I am looking forward to this. The title is so ‘come hither’ – it is almost like nature is calling! Since I will not waste any money on seeing Arjun Kapoor as yet-another ‘Chetan Bhagat’ avatar, this remains my May-June movie, over Half Girlfriend (seriously, what does that mean?
#10 The Ring (Dir: Imtiaz Ali, Cast: SRK, Anushka Sharma)
Believe it or not, the Bollywood Ring has not one TV-leaping ghost in it. Although, the haggard SRK and the plastic Sharma can sometimes scare you, the intent is still romance. It is a working title, and the movie might release as Rehnumaa, actually. Yes, yes – there will be a lot of East Europe. So, my annual vacation is sorted.
#11 Padmavati (Dir: Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Cast: Who else?, also Shahid Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari)
Bhansali is an expert in selling Ranveer-Deepika in period costumes. The glamour, the chemistry, the fifty shades of light grey – not to be missed. It would be a most dazzling dance drama, even if the storytelling sucks and you get confused which Bhansali movie you are watching. Ranveer as the baddie, Khilji, might strike gold.
#12 Judwa 2 (Dir: David Dhawan, Cast: Varun Dhawan, Tapsee Pannu, Jaqueline Fernandez)
Do not judge me. Judwaa was a blast! David Dhawan is the God of brain-free bolly-flicks, and I will pay all kinds of premium to watch Oonchi hain building, tarararara…, redone!
