  1. The 23 films are in the running for top prize Golden Lion, to be chosen by a jury led by actor Julianne Moore.
  2. A few weeks ago, SS Rajamouli’s Telugu-language film RRR was released and broke several records pan-India. While many celebrities from the Hindi film industry also watched and lauded the film, one of them put up a question that has crossed every movie fan’s mind at least once. It was Salman Khan who wondered and asked why Hindi films don’t work as exceptionally in the South as their films work with the audience from the North. View this post on Instagram The question was valid since South Indian films, be it RRR, Bahubali series or KGF: Chapter 1, have been loved by fans all across the country while Hindi films don’t mint as much money in the South as it does from the rest of the states. View this post on Instagram KGF series actor Yash, who is all set to release a sequel to his film KGF: Chapter 2 this week, recently responded to Salman’s thoughts in an interview with Bollywood Life and we finally have an answer. View this post on Instagram He said, “Our films also never used to get this kind of recipient, but what is happening from that part of the world, they have started playing dubbed versions here, people became familiar with the content of what we are creating.” View this post on Instagram Yash added that South films were not given importance because of the kind of dubbing that was done but gradually people got familiar with the content, storytelling and direction over the years. “What worked today is people got familiar with our way of storytelling, our cinema, so it has not happened overnight,” he said adding, “And then we got a straight instant connection with Baahubali, SS Rajamouli sir, Prabhas they took that initiative followed by KGF.” View this post on Instagram About Salman making the honest and candid comment, Yash said, “We have watched a lot of films of Hindi stars, we all love them, but the market potential – have they lived up, penetrated it – definitely, there is a huge potential in what I feel and Salman sir is right in that aspect but it isn’t that we don’t watch, we have been watching them but the thing is maybe they should see other aspects also other than just releasing the film actors.” View this post on Instagram We couldn’t agree more. KGF: Chapter 2 hits the screens on 14th April 2022 and is estimated to break even RRR’s BO collections. View the full article

  4. The ‘dhamakedaar’ trio of director SS Rajamouli and Tollywood superstars Ram Charan and Jr NTR is creating magic across the globe with their magnum opus RRR. A movie that broke all records previously held by Baahubali (another Rajamouli film) is showing no signs of stopping the speed of light. The movie is a fictional take on the journeys of two freedom fighters who align their goal and make a team. If you loved this visual delight and are a newfound fan of this trio, then here are 4 movies where the ace director has previously worked with the two actors that might interest you: 1. Student no. 1This movie marked Rajamouli’s debut in directing Telugu films and starred Jr. NTR and Gajala in the lead roles. The film turned out to be a major breakthrough for both the actor and the director, and was even later remade in Tamil, owing to its massive success. The film follows a student enrolling in a law college to honor his father’s wish and later faces multiple challenges in his life as he tries to deal with his past. 2. SimhadriTwo years after student no. 1, Rajamouli joined hands with Jr NTR for this movie, which also starred actresses Bhumika Chawla and Ankitha in the lead roles. The movie is a story of a boy adopted by a man named Varmas and grows up to fall in a love triangle. Full entertainment guaranteed. 3. YamadongaRajamouli and Jr NTR created magic for the third time when this blockbuster left fans asking for more. The movie followed the story of an orphan thief who dies while he is getting a girl kidnapped. After his death, he lands in Yamlok, and tries to fight the mighty Yamraj to win his life back. Jr NTR received his ‘best actor’ award for this movie only. 4. MagadheeraThis movie probably began the classic Rajamouli style of storytelling which includes a hero, a past life connection, some ‘badle ki aag’ and a little charm of romance. This Ram Charan starrer ended up making over Rs 150 crore at the box office. View the full article
  5. Amid the mammoth success of SS Rajamouli’s RRR, another South Indian film is gaining traction all over the country & that is Yash starrer KGF: Chapter 2, a sequel to 2018 blockbuster KGF: Chapter 1. The advance booking of KGF: Chapter 2 opened on Thursday and the hype around the film is such that it has already taken down the total advance booking collection of SS Rajamouli’s RRR in just two days. According to Box Office India, the advance of KGF: Chapter 2 is the best in Hindi belts since the 2019 film War. At present, the Prashanth Neel directorial is looking to have a massive opening day that can even challenge all-time records in Bollywood. However, in order to create an opening day record, Sanjay Dutt starrer will have to battle out these 5 films in Hindi belts: Bharat (2019) © Salman Khan Films Salman Khan’s 2019 hit, Bharat opened to a huge Rs 42.30 crore collection and is currently the fourth biggest opener at the box office in Hindi. Happy New Year (2014) © Red Chillies Entertainment Shah Rukh Khan’s 2014 hit Happy New Year was the biggest opener ever at the time of its release with opening day collections that were unthinkable & unimaginable. The movie made Rs 44.97 crore on day one. Thugs of Hindostan (2018) © Yash Raj Films Happy New Year’s opening day record was broken by Aamir Khan & Amitabh Bachchan’s 2018 dud Thugs of Hindostan. The movie’s opening day collection was an unprecedented Rs 52.25 crore. War (2019) © Yash Raj Films The biggest opening day in Bollywood belongs to Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War. The movie had a record-breaking advance booking and on day one, it shattered all-time records to collect Rs 53.35 crore. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) © Arka Media Works Well, not technically a Bollywood film but behind Bharat in the fifth spot is SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. The movie collected a huge Rs 41 crore in just its Hindi version. View the full article
  6. With the 2017 blockbuster Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, SS Rajamouli became the first director in the history of Indian cinema to hit the unthinkable Rs 1000 crore mark at the worldwide box office. Now, with his latest blockbuster RRR, he has become the only director to have two films in the Rs 1000 crore club. The movie has not only become the biggest blockbuster of the year but has also reached the third spot in the list of highest-grossing films of all time in Indian cinema. However, there are six upcoming films that have the potential to take down RRR at the box office. Check out the list below: 1. Pathaan © Yash Raj Films Marking the comeback of the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, Pathaan also stars Deepika Padukone & John Abraham. The movie directed by Siddharth Anand is a part of Yash Raj Films’ Spy Universe and is carrying massive buzz around it. While a sure shot record-breaking opening is a given, if the content clicks with the audience, it also has the potential to beat the box office records of RRR. The movie opens during Republic Day 2023. 2. KGF: Chapter 2 © Hombale Films Releasing on April 14, 2022, KGF: Chapter 2 starring Yash in the lead role is a sequel to the mass entertainer KGF: Chapter 1 that released in 2018 and surprised everyone with its record-breaking business. The hype around the second part helmed by Prashanth Neel is unparalleled at the moment. With the presence of Sanjay Dutt & Raveena Tandon, it won’t be a surprise if KGF: Chapter 2 breaks RRR’s box office records. 3. Brahmastra © Dharma Productions Touted to be the biggest film to come out of Indian cinema and the most expensive Hindi film ever made, Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Nagarjuna & Amitabh Bachchan is a superhero fantasy that can create new milestones for Indian cinema. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, this Karan Johar production may turn out to be a massive money-spinner and can shatter RRR records. The film releases on September 9, 2022. 4. Tiger 3 © Yash Raj Films A sequel to Ek Tha Tiger & Tiger Zinda Hai, which is Salman Khan’s biggest domestic grosser, Tiger 3 will be a follow up of sorts to Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. Directed by Maneesh Sharma and co-starring Katrina Kaif & Emraan Hashmi, Tiger 3 is a sure shot blockbuster but the movie can also surprise & surpass RRR box office upon its release during Eid 2023. 5. Adipurush © Instagram/Om Raut Even though his recent release Radhe Shyam turned out to be the biggest disaster in the history of Indian cinema with reported losses of over Rs 110 crore, one can’t rule out the star of Baahubali films, yet. His take on Lord Ram in Om Raut’s Adipurush is keenly awaited. And the icing on the cake will be Saif Ali Khan’s version of Raavan. The film also stars Kriti Sanon & Sunny Singh. The film is slated to release on January 12, 2023. 6. Laal Singh Chaddha © Aamir Khan Productions Despite SS Rajamouli’s back to back all-time blockbusters, if there is one record that has eluded him then that is the highest-grossing film in Indian cinema. That record is with Aamir Khan with his 2016 sports biopic Dangal. So, if there is one film that truly has what it takes to leave behind RRR at the box office and create new records then it is Laal Singh Chaddha. The remake of Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, Laal Singh Chaddha is helmed by Advait Chandan & also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan & Naga Chaitanya. The film is slated for an August 11, 2022 release.

  7. While movies featuring superstars often take huge openings thanks to their immense popularity and massive box office pull, not every superstar film takes a record-breaking opening. That comes only with a few films where the subject matter along with the presence of a superstar excites the audience enough for them to throng the theatres on day one itself. Oftentimes, the movies that make a record-breaking opening turn out to be huge hits at the box office but there have been a few times where Bollywood has broken records on its opening day and eventually crashed thereafter. Here’s a look at 5 such Hindi films below: Trimurti (1995) © Mukta Arts Released during the Christmas period in the year 1995, Trimurti carried a huge buzz around it. Directed by maverick filmmaker Mukul Anand, backed by Subhash Ghai and starring Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor & Shah Rukh Khan, Trimurti became the first film in the history of Indian cinema to cross the Rs 1 crore mark on its opening day. The film collected Rs 1.06 crore on day one but due to the negative response from the critics and the audience eventually failed and ended its lifetime run at a poor Rs 8.57 crore. Hindustan Ki Kasam (1999) © Ajay Devgn Ffilms Marking the directorial debut of Ajay Devgn’s father, the legendary action director Veeru Devgan, Hindustan Ki Kasam starred Ajay in the lead role along with Sushmita Sen, Manisha Koirala and Amitabh Bachchan. The film was supposed to repeat the success of Ajay and Amitabh’s previous collaboration Major Saab. It opened to a record-breaking Rs 1.45 crore but the film flopped at the box office in the long run and folded its collection with just Rs 13.96 crore. Refugee (2000) © JP Dutta Films One of the most hyped films of the early ‘00s, Refugee marked the debut of Amitabh Bachchan’s son Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor’s sister Kareena Kapoor. The film took the biggest opening of all time earning Rs 1.56 crore but failed to maintain its momentum. It collected Rs 17.08 crore. Mangal Pandey (2005) © Kaleidoscope Entertainments Perhaps the first film where the audience saw the perfectionist side of Aamir Khan who decided to grow his hair and moustache to play the freedom fighter. Mangal Pandey: The Rising collected Rs 3.24 crore at the box office on its opening day and created an all-time record. However, it couldn’t travel the distance and ended its run with just Rs 27.86 crore. Thugs of Hindostan (2018) © yash Raj Films Starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan along with Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, Thugs of Hindostan became the first Hindi film to collect Rs 50 crore on day one itself. But, it crashed from its second onwards and could reach only Rs 138.34 crore. View the full article
  8. Filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri is currently basking in the historic success of his latest release, The Kashmir Files. Featuring his wife Pallavi Joshi, Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Joshi, and others in pivotal roles, the film has exceeded everyone's expectations by entering the Rs. 200 crore club. Based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, the movie is performing well in the third week as well, despite strong competition from SS Rajamouli's RRR. View this post on Instagram Ever since its release on March 11, several Bollywood stars came out in the film's support and one of them is Kangana Ranaut. On social media and in several interviews, the Queen star supported and appreciated The Kashmir Files, when other celebrities were in no mood to talk about it. Later, Agnihotri too praised Kangana for standing up for the movie that shares the heart-breaking story of Kashmiri Pandits. As per the latest buzz, Kangana might be working with Vivek on a film. However, the news has turned out to be false. Yes, you read that right! Reportedly, after the success of The Kashmir Files, the director will focus on The Delhi Files. Also, he hasn't even begun to consider what he would like to make next. View this post on Instagram While talking to Bollywood Hungama, Vivek reacted to the ongoing speculations and talked about working with stars. He said, "My films don’t need stars. They need actors. When I started my journey 12 years ago I decided I will make my kind of films and I will never make a star-driven film. I firmly believe cinema is the writer and director’s medium". Well, his statement is surely going to disappoint Kangana fans. Coming back to his next venture, The Delhi Files focuses on the right to life and marks the end of the 'Files' trilogy. Revealing the same, Vivek had earlier said, "Coming up next is The Delhi Files and then I am done with the Files trilogy. No power on earth and no amount of money can persuade me to turn the Files into a franchise. It was always meant to be a trilogy. Nothing can change that. Those who know me from before would know that I’ve been making the films that I want to make for the last ten years. I am the last person who is going to think, ‘The audience is addicted to the franchise, so let’s make one more.’ I will never do that". View this post on Instagram Kangana, on the other hand, has several interesting projects in her kitty. Last seen in Thalaivi, the actress' lineup includes Dhaakad, Tejas, and Sita: The Incarnation.

  9. John Abraham, who was last seen in Satyameva Jayate 2, is all set to entertain fans with his next release, Attack. Featuring Rakul Preet Singh and Jacqueline Fernandez as the leading ladies, the film promises to deliver an action-packed spectacle never-seen-before in Indian cinema. As the movie is only a few days away from its release, the team is currently busy promoting it. View this post on Instagram Recently, during a promotional event for Attack, John got irritated when a journalist asked about the unrealistic action sequences in his films and reacted aggressively. The Batla House star called the reported "dumb" and told him that he left his brain at home. Yes, you read that right! It all started when the journalist asked, "Aapke films mein action hota hai, lekin action ke overdose ho jaati hai, aap 4-5 logo ke saath fight karte hai accha lagta hai, lekin 200 logo ke saath fight kar rahe hai, bike ko hawa mein uda rahe hai, chopper ko haath se rok rahe hai, toh aisa lagta hai zyada ho jaata hai (There’s action in your movies, but sometimes there’s an overdose of the same. We like when you fight with 4-5 people, but sometimes you fight with 200 men, throw away bikes and stop chopper with your hands, that looks like a little too much)". After hearing this, the actor intervened and cleared if he was talking about Attack, but the journalist emphasized that the question was about Satyameva Jayate 2, which was released last year. John replied, "Main toh Attack ki baat kar raha hu, agar aapko isse problem hai (I am talking about Attack. If you have problem with this), toh I am sorry. I really offended you". View this post on InstagramThe Dhoom actor again mocked the journalist while answering another question about his fitness and that's when the conference took an ugly turn. John said, "More than physically fit, I am trying to be mentally fit to answer some crazy questions as people are so dumb. Sorry sir, aap dimaag chod kar aa gaye (You left your brain at home). I apologise for you. On behalf of everyone, main aapke liye apologise karta hu, koi baat nahi, you’ll do better next time". While answering the third consecutive question, the Bollywood star again took a swing at the reporter and called him "uncle" this time. He said, "If you ask the same ghisa-pita question like uncle, you’ll have a problem. You’ll have to ask the questions of today". You can watch the video below: Looks like the debacle of Satyameva Jayate 2 has really affected John as he couldn't move on since the journalist mentioned the film at the event. All we can say is, he should have handled the situation more gracefully instead of making some nasty comments. Do you agree? Share your views about the incident in the comments below. Coming back to Attack, the film has been directed by Lakshya Raj Anand and is all set to hit the theatres on April 1. View the full article
  10. Every year, there are eagerly anticipated films featuring the biggest of the stars with the highest of the budgets that sometimes work wonders at the box office or turn out to be a big-time bomb. However, among the big-budget extravaganzas, once in a while comes a “small” film that surprises everyone and rocks the box office. Here’s a look at 5 such small budget films that turn out to be blockbusters at the box office: 1. Jai Santoshi Maa (1975) © Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir Released alongside one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, Sholay, not many expected this small budget film to find an audience at the box office.

  11. Akshay Kumar is a hit machine and why not, the guy works round the clock, throughout the year and is one of the highest tax payers of the country. While he’s known to have a Midas touch for his movies, a lot of them are mass entertainers because they are either inspired or remade from another big hit. Here are 5 movies which were a remake of South Indian hits: 1. Hera PheriThis blockbuster is a remake of a Priyadarshan movie titled Ramji Rao Speaking. This comedy features Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, and Tabu in lead roles. 2. Rowdy RathoreFeaturing Akshay and Sonakshi in the lead roles, this Prabhu Deva directorial is a Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Vikramarkudu, which was originally directed by S. S. Rajamouli. 3. LaxmiiThe Hindi version was a commercial dud but the film is based on 2011 Kanchana. The Bollywood version of the film starred Akshay along with Kiara Advani and was directed by Raghav Lawrence. 4. Bhool BhulaiyaThis super hit film which is coming up with its own sequel, was originally based on the Malayalam movie Manichitrathazhu. The horror comedy movie starred Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Shiney Ahuja, Paresh Rawal. 5. HolidayThis movie is a Hindi version of the Tamil blockbuster Thuppakki starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal. The Tamil and the Hindi version were directed by A. R. Murugadoss. View the full article
  12. Producer Savita Raj Hiremath, took to Twitter yesterday to point out the apparent double standards in the treatment meted out by the government to the new releases Jhund & The Kashmir Files. Starring veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, Jhund was released on the 4th of March but has struggled to put out the numbers that had been expected of it. The post by Savita Raj Hiremath, a producer for Jhund, says that she’s perplexed why her film wasn’t made eligible for tax-free viewing, as seen in the case of The Kashmir Files. “I recently watched Kashmir files and as the story of Kashmiri Pandits exodus its heartbreaking and is a story that needed to be told. It is a good voice for Kashmiri Pandits..!! But as the producer of JHUND I am perplexed. After all Jhund is also an important film and has a story and a Big Message that has received tremendous acclaim and word of mouth from audience.” The producer of #Jhund FB post. #TheKashmirFiles pic.twitter.com/TSpetvUFh7 — Harneet Singh (@Harneetsin) March 19, 2022 Jhund a film about a Nagpur-based retired sports teacher who pioneered a slum soccer movement should have gotten rebates similar to the ones received by the Vivek Agnihotri directorial, at least that’s what Savita believes, as she continues in her post, “I want to find out what’s the criterion on which govt selects a film to support it so strongly by making tax free, endorsing it through social media and asking Offices to showcase the film or give half day holiday to its employees. After all jhund also has a subject that is so crucial to our country’s growth..jhund is not just talking about the disparity between caste and economic disparity but also shows a way to make the lower strat of society find their success story.” The Amitabh Bachchan starrer marked filmmaker Nagraj Manjule’s Hindi debut, having previously delivered critically acclaimed work with Fandry and Sairat. Despite a positive response from the audience, Jhund is struggling at the box office with it barely amounting to an estimated two-week total of Rs 17.25 crores. Do you think Jhund would have performed better if it hadn’t been for the concessions given to The Kashmir Files? Let us know in the comments! View the full article
