Ugly

Ugly

Directed by Anurag Kashyap
Starring Girish Kulkarni, Ronit Roy, Tejaswini Kolhapure, Vinit Kumar Singh, Surveen Chawla and Vipin Sharma

Touted as a dark psychological thriller on the surface and an emotional drama within, the trailer of this film leaves you intrigued and a little jittery with all its darkness. The film was screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and also opened the 2014 New York Indian Film Festival. Knowing Anurag Kashyap's penchant for dark cinema, his fans eagerly await this film to see what Kashyap has to offer this time.

Release date : 19 September 2014

Finding Fanny

Finding Fanny

Directed by Homi Adajania
Starring Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur, Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor

Finding Fanny revolves around five rather dysfunctional characters that live in the quaint sleepy village of Pocolim, nestled deep in the interiors of Goa. Promising to be an off the wall, comical story about these five oddballs (trailer here!), Finding Fanny is one movie we don't want to miss - especially with the brilliant starcast!

Release date : 12 September 2014

Directed by Anurag Kashyap
Screenplay by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Karan Johar
Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Raveena Tandon, Kay Kay Menon and Siddharth Basu

Aren't the above mentioned names enough to make you want to watch this film?! It is the story of the rise of an ordinary man named Johnny Balraj, and of how the city of Bombay became a metropolis against the backdrop of love, greed, violence and jazz music. With all the secrecy revolving around this movie, we can't wait to find out what it really entails!

Directed by Siddharth Raj Anand
Starring Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif

Produced by Fox Star studios, this film is a remake of the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz starrer Knight and Day. What we can't wait to see is the chemistry between Hrithik and Katrina, Abu Dhabi, the action, the thrills and the romance and from what seems to be from the awesome trailer - a blockbuster film!

Khoobsurat

Khoobsurat

Directed by Shashanka Ghosh
Starring Fawad Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Kirron Kher, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Ratna Pathak and Aamir Raza Hussain

A remake of the classic movie of the same name, Khoobsurat looks like a delightful romantic comedy! What we can't wait to see - or rather WHO we can't wait to see - is the dashing Fawad Afzal Khan, a Pakistani actor (and also known as the lead singer for Entity Paradigm)! And also Ratna Pathak Shah reprises the role her mother played in the original! Have a look at the trailer and see for yourself...

Release date : 19 September, 2014

PK

PK

Directed by Raj Kumar Hirani
Starring Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani, Sanjay Butt, Saurabh Shukla
Going by the wacky trailer, this seems to be a movie to watch out for! Talking about the film, Aamir said: "Like Raj Kumar's other films even this film will have a strong message. This is the toughest role of my career. I have hardly blinked in this film because of my character. I can't reveal much as the crux of the story will get revealed. There are lot of rumours. People feel that I am playing a double role, some feel I am playing an alien but wait till the film releases," he added. Oh but we just can't wait!!!
Release date : 19 December, 2014
