Top 5 Bollywood (Hindi) Movies Releasing in September 2018

5. Pradeep Sarkar's – 'Helicopter Eela'

Release Date - September 7, 2018 | Starring - Kajol

Reasons to be Excited About - The last time we've seen Kajol play a titular role in a film was for 'My Name is Khan' back in 2010. Helicopter Eela will display the Darling of Romance as an aspiring singer and a single mother, and judging by the trailers, so far, the movie seems to have a comedic tone and looks very much enjoyable.

4. J. P. Dutta’s – 'Paltan'

Release Date - September 7, 2018 | Starring - Ensemble Cast

Reasons to be Excited About - Based on the military clashes of Nathu La in 1967, Paltan showcases the intense war between India and China. Backed with a gigantic super cast, this is J.P. Dutta's (known for patriotic films like Border and LOC Kargil) comeback film as the director after twelve years. So, it's always interesting to see if he still has the blockbuster magic or not.

3. Shree Narayan Singh’s – 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu'

Release Date - September 21, 2018 | Starring - Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, and Yami Gautam

Reasons to be Excited About - So far, the vibe that I'm getting from the songs and the promos of this film is similar to Shahid's 2013 film 'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero' co-starring Ileana D'Cruz. But, Shree Narayan Singh is an acclaimed director, and is the man behind-the-camera for one of the biggest hits of 2017 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha'. Batti Gul Meter Chalu explores the electricity issues in rural India, and if it struck the chord when it comes to the social message part, I'm sure that it will be an incredible hit.

2. Anurag Kashyap’s – 'Manmarziyaan'

Release Date - September 14, 2018 | Starring -  Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu

Reasons to be Excited About - Manmarziyaan looks and feels very different from a typical Kashyap movie, which is IMO, a good thing if he's looking to diversify and explore different genres. Also, the cast includes Taapsee and Abhishek Bachchan, which is again, not normal. Nonetheless, Kashyap's films were always something to look for, and with his previous film in 2018, 'Mukkabaaz', not fairing well at the box office, all the pressure is now on Manmarziyaan and hopefully, it will perform well.

1. Sharat Katariya’s – 'Sui Dhaaga - Made in India'

Release Date - September 25, 2018 | Starring -  Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma

Reasons to be Excited About - With one of the most earnest looks in the promos, both Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma look very much down-to-earth in their characters, and I'm sure that this film will likely earn them multiple award nominations. Directed by Sharat Katariya ('Dum Laga Ke Haisha' fame), I'm also confident that this film will have a heartwarming story and will indeed be one of the decent hits of this year.
