TOP 5 BOLLYWOOD MOVIES RELEASING THIS SUMMER

5. Meghna Gulzar's - 'Raazi'

Release Date - May 11 | Starring - Vicky Kaushal and Alia Bhatt

Making a remarkable mark with her début film Talvar, Meghna Gulzar is preparing for the release of her upcoming film Raazi. Starring Vicky Kaushal (Raman Raghav 2.0 fame) and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, the film is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, about a Kashmiri spy married to a Pakistani man during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The film will be a period-thriller and Meghna's is pretty good at directing edgy subjects and the addition of Kaushal and Alia seems to be exciting. Let's hope for the best!

4. Abhishek Sharma's - 'Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran'

Release Date - TBA | Starring - John Abraham and Diana Penty

Directed by Abhishek Sharma (The Shaukeens fame), the film is based on the nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998 and will feature John Abraham and Diana Penty as Army Officials. Previously starring in Shoojit Sircar's sleeper-hit film Madras Cafe, John Abraham is no stranger when it comes to real life and army based films and him starring in another film which looks very similar to Madras Cafe is exciting. Also, Abhishek Sharma proved his mettle in the comedic genre and it should be interesting to watch how he handles action and drama. Altogether, sooner than later, this film will get a definite release date and hopefully, it will impress and do well.

3. Shoojit Sircar's - 'October'

Release Date - April 13 | Starring - Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu

Talking about Shoojit Sircar, his upcoming film October is creating a positive buzz all around the internet soon after the trailer dropped. Touted as a romantic-drama, this film looks unorthodox and unlike anything Sircar had done before. Varun Dhawan is another positive for the film cause I believe he's a well-rounded actor and dramatic roles suit him very well as we've seen him excel in Badlapur. Nevertheless, this film has all the potential to be great and exceptional, but, you never know!

2. Rajkumar Hirani's - 'Sanju'

Release Date - June 29 | Starring - Ranbir Kapoor

Directed by the critically acclaimed director Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role is a biopic on the life of the legendary actor, Sanjay Dutt who is an interesting personality in the film industry. Also starring Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor as the supporting cast, this film should be very compelling to watch, not only because of Hirani directing but also because of the controversial life of Sanju Baba who spent his time in jail a few years back.

1. Remo D'Souza's - 'Race 3'

Release Date - June 15 | Starring - Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez

Coming off the blockbuster success of the previous two Race films, Race 3 is easily the most anticipated of the Summer. Starring Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Anil Kapoor in the lead roles, this film should be a high-octane ride with amazing action sequences and breathtaking car stunts like we've never seen before. My only concern is with Remo D' Souza directing the film, who has an unimpressive track record as a storyteller.
