‘Happy’ New Year?

The year 2016 wasn’t very good for the film industry. Still, we are optimistic about the films releasing in 2017. According to me, Jolly LLB, Padmavati, Tiger Zinda Hai and Robot 2.0 will emerge victorious. The immediate releases of Raees and Kaabil should also prove to be big at the box office.  I have a feeling that even Ranbir Kapoor’s Jagga Jasoos will do well.

The Shah Rukh Khan and Anushkha Sharma-starrer directed by Imtiaz Ali tops the charts for me.  Golmaal Again releases in Diwali, so it has a good chance of doing good business. Other films that I am looking forward to are Bahubali: The Conclusion, Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai, all of Akshay Kumar’s films – Jolly LLB 2, 2.0 and Toilet Ek Prem Katha – and Ajay Devgn’s Badshaho. Lastly, Sarkaar 3 looks very promising too.

The year 2017 appears to have an interesting line-up of films. Of all the films releasing this year, I feel Raees, Bahubali, SRK-Anushka’s next film, Tiger Zinda Hai and Padmavati look most promising and should set the cash registers ringing at the box office.

Raees and Kaabil, which are releasing shortly, seem very promising. Of the other films releasing this year, Tubelight will be a great success at the box office and will go strong for the first two weeks.

2017 has an eclectic set of releases. From Raees to Tubelight and Padmavati, all these films seem very promising and are big-budget productions. Kaabil and Bahubali 2 should also perform well at the box office. Most of them will do rocking business, given their star cast and directors. One can say more only after the trailers and teasers release.

Raees, Bahubali, Robot 2.0, Padmavati, Jolly LLB, Baadshaho, Simran, Haseena and Golmaal Again are the promising films of 2017. Along with these films, others such as Badrinath Ki Dulhania starring Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan will be hits too. Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri will do well but a lot depends on the promotion and marketing. Noor starring Sonakshi Sinha also has a good subject and storyline.

Raees will be Shah Rukh Khan’s highest-grosser. Jolly LLB, Tubelight, Robot 2.0, Golmaal 4 and Tiger Zinda Hai look equally promising. The dark horse of this year will be the Aamir Khan-starrer Secret Superstar along with Naam Shabana. Padmavati will be big too, but a lot depends on the trailer.

There are a number of Hollywood and Bollywood releases this year. Among them, Raees, Kaabil, Jolly LLB, Rangoon, Commando and Bahubali will emerge big winners at the box office. Personally, I feel one of the reasons 2016 wasn’t good for the movie business was that many of the films were metro-centric. There should be a balance of content and masala for films to work out.
