Raees and Kaabil amongst 50 films to watch out for in 2017



It’s that time of the year when one keenly looks forward to what does Bollywood have to offer in months to come. We list down 52 films that should keep hard-core movies buffs entertained.

  1. Raees: 2017 sees its first big ticket arrival in the form of Raees. The Shah Rukh Khan starrer has been in the wings for a while and now that it has been released, expect explosive times ahead at the Box Office.
  1. Kaabil: Made in record time by Sanjay Gupta, Kaabil is a quintessential 'masala' affair from the house of Rakesh Roshan. Hrithik is in great form for this film which is finding good buzz going its way.
  1. Jolly LLB 2: Akshay Kumar would be kick-starting his 2017 campaign with Jolly LLB 2 and if the promo is any indication, he would be demonstrating his versatility again in an amusing yet dramatic ride. Brace up!
  1. Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion: It has been a nail biting wait to figure out 'Why did Katappa Kill Bahubali?' SS Rajamouli is expected to deliver nothing but the best with his period war drama made on a lavish scale
  1. Tubelight: Salman Khan and Kabir Khan would be back after Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. They are expected to strike big and score a hat-trick this Eid. The film is said to boast of an unusual plot.
  1. The Ring: The Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer doesn't have a fixed title yet but what is known for sure is the fact that Imtiaz Ali would yet again take his audience through a scintillating musical road trip.
  1. Judwaa 2:- Varun Dhawan stepping into the shoes of Salman Khan and that too in a double role! His fans wouldn't have asked for anything more as David Dhawan too is returning as a director with this fun film.
  1. 2.0: 2017's biggest release is 2.0, what with Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar coming together in a sci-fi affair that has Shankar as the director. This is the kind of film that you wait to catch at the big screen.
  1. Padmavati: From being Leela to Mastani, Deepika Padukone is now Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. This time around, other than Ranveer Singh she also has Shahid Kapoor for company. Expect lot of drama!
  1. Tiger Zinda Hai: For Salman Khan fans, it could well be the call of 'Do Mein Zyaada Mazaa Hai'. Just a few months after Tubelight, the superstar would be seen in the sequel to Ek Tha Tiger along with Katrina Kaif
  1. Sanjay Dutt biopic: Rajkumar Hirani has silently begun work around Sanjay Dutt's biopic and also announced the release date as Christmas 2017. With Ranbir Kapoor in lead, it is going to be an explosive affair
  1. Rangoon: Kangna Ranaut as the Fearless Nadia, her two suitors being Saif Ali Khan & Shahid Kapoor, and Vishal Bhardwaj as the director! Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has indeed put together a unique team here
  1. Toilet - Ek Prem Katha: Just when one thought that Akshay Kumar was on a patriotic drive with Airlift, Rustom and Jolly LLB 2, he is already gearing up for his next which picks up the mantle of 'swachh bhaarat'
  1. PadMan: From Toilet – Ek Prem Katha to PadMan, there is some wonderful transition for Akshay Kumar. He has been picking up some very unusual yet commercial interests and PadMan should be a good extension of that
  1. Badrinath Ki Dulhania: Though not a true sequel of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, the Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer should add on to the recall value though due to the title. Karan Johar backs all the fun.
  1. Jagga Jasoos: Though it has been a wait for over two years, it seems to be worth it, what with Anurag Basu creating a fantasy world for his Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer. Expect to be surprised!


  1. Half Girlfriend: Arjun Kapoor excelled in Chetan Bhagat written 2 States. One expects the duo to do well again in Half Girlfriend which also has Mohit Suri and Shraddha Kapoor pairing after Aashiqui 2 & Ek Villain.
  1. Munna Michael: Tiger Shroff and Sabbir Khan scored back to back with Heropanti and Baaghi. Now Munna Michael is being looked at as their hat-trick film. The presence of Nawazuddin Siddiqui further heats it up
  1. Mubarakan: Arjun Kapoor too would be seen in a double role in Anees Bazmee's Mubarakan. Other than Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty pumping on the glam quotient, Anil Kapoor should add on to his 'jhakaas'
  1. Baadshaho: Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Milan Luthria coming together again after Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai - This by itself is a news great enough for their fans, especially in the interiors of India
  1. Chef: If the makers of Chef are to be believed, the Saif Ali Khan has a lot to offer beyond the multiplex sector. Apparently, director Raja Menon has Indianised the entire set up to give the film a pan-India appeal
  1. Sarkar 3: 'Govinda Govinda Govinda' - Expect the chant to reverberate once Amitabh Bachchan and Ram Gopal Varma come together for Sarkar 3. The wait won't be long as the promo is out in January itself.
  1. Raabta: The film was earlier supposed to release in February but now has been pushed to June. Other than link up rumors of Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon, the romcom musical should have a lot to offer
  1. Phillauri: After NH10, yet another unusual choice made by Anushka Sharma as a producer-actor is Phillauri. There is absolutely no idea around its plotline but given the set up, it should be entertaining for sure
  1. Naam Shabana: Now this should be a cracker of a film! Baby was an explosive thriller and now that Taapsee Pannu's story from the past is being told in the prequel, it should be edge-of-the-seat for sure
  1. Noor: Sonakshi Sinha got into an action avtar in 2016 [Akira, Force 2]. She is now expected to be in a chill out zone with Noor where she plays an investigative journalist. This time around, she is driving it solo
  1. Meri Pyari Bindu: Almost 3 years after Kill/Dil, Parineeti Chopra would be seen in Meri Pyari Bindu. The Yash Raj film with Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead should be a sweet-n-sour tale with a 'desi tadka' to it.
  1. Takadum: Word 'Takadum' instantly reminds one of the Madhuri Dixit hit from Dil Toh Paagal Hai. Now Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra would be seen in this unusual film with Irrfan as their co-star
  1. Reloaded: This one should be a hot 'jodi' indeed to look out for! Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez together on screen should be piping hot and with an action set up, it should be further irresistible
  1. Captain Nawab: Over the last few years, Emraan Hashmi has a played a series of different characters. Now with Captain Nawab, he steps in as an Army man. Tony D'Souza directs him again after Azhar.
  1. Bhoomi: It was back in 2013 [Policegiri] when Sanjay Dutt was seen as a central protagonist. Now that he is making a comeback with Omung Kumar's Bhoomi, all eyes are on his chosen subject and character
  1. Ittefaq remake: Continuing with his penchant of picking up different characters with every film of his, Sidharth Malhotra has now chosen to step into the shoes of Rajesh Khanna for the remake of his Ittefaq


  1. Indu Sarkar: Madhur Bhandarkar had a continued stint with the world of glamour in Heroine and Calendar Girls. Now he is taking a different route by entering the political territory with this Kirti Kulhari starrer
  1. Simran: Kangna Ranaut would be seen in two distinct roles in 2017. While Rangoon shows her fiery side, Simran would have her get into a playful-n-naughty zone. This is a different set up for Hansal Mehta too
  1. Poster Boys: Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol together in a rip roaring laughter affair set in the interiors - This is how Poster Boys is being pitched which also marks the directorial debut of actor Shreyas Talpade
  1. Veere Di Wedding: With Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor coming together in a fun celebration film, expect a rip roaring Punjabi ride. Shashanka Ghosh returns as a director after Khoobsurat.
  1. Daddy: The teaser has already made an impression and one now keenly awaits what does producer-actor Arjun Rampal have to offer next. This is also a commercial vehicle for Ashim Ahulawalia [Miss Lovely]
  1. Atithi In London: A franchise affair which follows Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge, this one by Ashwini Dhir features Kartik Aryan [Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1 & 2] along with Kirti Kharbanda. Paresh Rawal adds on to the chaos
  1. Bareilly Ki Barfi: Now this is one combination of actors that is set to brighten up this small town affair. Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao should be a delight to watch in this Ashwini Iyer film
  1. 40. Kaalakaandi : What is Kaalakaandi? This could be the first piece of the puzzle that should be unraveled once the promotional campaign of this Saif Ali Khan starrer begins. Akshat Verma (writer, Delhi Belly) directs.
  1. Luv Ranjan's next with Kartik Aryan and Nushrat Bharucha - Together, the trio has done quite well in both the instalments of Pyaar Ka Punchnama. One waits to see the sweet-n-saccharine route they take again
  1. Machine: Director duo Abbas-Mustan took a comic route with Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. They would be back with the action-thriller-musical Machine, a twisted love story, which launches Abbas' son Mustafa.
  1. The Ghazi Attack: A few weeks before Bahubali 2, Rana Daggubati would be seen in this Telugu-Hindi bilingual. The Karan Johar presentation goes with the tagline of 'The War You Did Not Know About'
  1. Commando 2: Vudyut Jammwal made a very good impression with Commando. However, he was selective in the films that he picked. Now that he would be seen in the film's sequel, expect stunts galore
  1. Tumhari Sulu: Vidya Balan has played a series of heavy duty roles in a row already. She is now set to lighten up in Tumhari Sulu which sees her as a late night RJ. Expect a lot of spice in her chats that go on air
  1. Secret Superstar: Zaira Wasim impressed all as the younger Geeta in Dangal. She would be seen as a grown up teenager in Secret Superstar, the teaser of which is out. Aamir Khan makes a special appearance
  1. Bhavesh Joshi: Harshvardhan Kapoor took an unusual beginning in his career with Mirzya. Now he would be seen as a vigilante in Bhavesh Joshi. Vikramaditya Motwane picks the baton again after Lootera.
  1. Mom: Srivedi took a long sabbatical after delivering an award winning performance in English Vinglish. Now that the shooting of her next, Mom, is through, one waits to see what does she bring on board
  1. Fukrey 2: On its release, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba's Fukrey [2013] was the surprise success of the year. Now four years later, the team of Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Richa Chadha and Varun Sharma return
  1. Begum Jaan: Vidya Balan's Begum Jaan is slated to arrive in early 2017 where she plays a madam in a brothel. Set during partition, the film also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Ila Arun, Gauhar Khan and Pallavi Sharda
