My vote goes to Toilet: Ek Prem Katha because of its engaging creative, unique plot and storyline. Having said that, every product has its own merit and target audience. Munna Michael, A Gentleman, Daddy and Mubarakan should receive ample appreciation and views from its respective target audiences. With 16 million views for its trailer in just four days, Toliet: Ek Prem Katha leads the charts and has created enough of an opening buzz, nationwide. 

In the current market scenario, patrons want to consume different subjects and storylines rather than seeing normal rom-com or thrillers on the silver screen, which is being offered by Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. I expect good box-office numbers from all the movies which will be releasing in the coming months but Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks like a `100-crore product and should be fruitful for its producers. Also by the look of it, Jab Harry Met Sejal’s  creative looks are totally in the zone of a Shah Rukh Khan romantic film. Not to mention Ajay Devgn and team’s Badshaho and I am sure when the trailers o fthese films release, they will generate massive buzz.

The poster of Jab Harry Met Sajal looks amazing. Imtiaz Ali’s film features Shah Rukh Khan and Anushkha Sharma in the lead and it is an intriguing film to look out for. Then, of course, Toilet: Ek Prem Khatha, whose trailer is outstanding. Also, Munna Michael and Mubarakan both look commercially viable as the music and the concepts are expected to be good. These films will do great business

According to me, Toilet: Ek Prem Khatha is best because its trailer seems very interesting and a strong message can be expected from the film. Some of the upcoming films too look good but Toilet: Ek Prem Khatha stands out. Also, the two soon-to-be-released trailers of Jab Harry Met Sejal and Baadshaho are eagerly awaited as both films’ posters give a fabulous feel of their respective stories.

The trailers of all the upcoming films look good but I guess Toilet: Ek Prem Khatha is right there, on top, as the film’s subject is very interesting and is based on a current issue in our country. The audience has high expectations from the film and people will definitely relate to it. Having said that, Baadshaho, which has released its first-look posters, looks like a massive entertainer too, and Shah Rukh Khan teaming up with Imtiaz Ali looks promising in the posters of Jab Harry Met Sejal.

Baadshaho’s first posters, which are being released one after the other, look interesting and give you a great feeling as the film has Ajay Devgn and is directed by Milan Luthria. The combination looks perfect. Then, Toilet: Ek Prem Khatha, which has a huge message and since India is working on that subject as well, I think everyone should appreciate the team’s effort. It takes guts to make a film like this.

First, Toilet: Ek Prem Khatha is a content-based film and, coming from Akshay Kumar, has huge expectations. That’s but natural because Kumar’s films lately have great content, they cater to a large audience and do great business at the ticket window. In the trailer, we see a mature love story and, frankly, I like the project as it has a strong message for our nation. Second, I am looking forward to the film A Gentleman, which has a new pairing of Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. And even Mubarakan’s poster looks nice as the film will be funny and entertaining.

Munna Michael is a massy film. It looks great and the concept of the film is attractive to the youth. It will definitely do great business at the ticket window. According to me, Tiger Shroff has already created magic among the audience. So chances are high that this film will bring in good collections and entertain the audience.
