Whether you stayed true to any of your New Year’s resolutions or not, half a year has gone by and it’s honestly too late to care. That ship has sailed but hey we still have Bollywood!
After giving us a lit film like Gully Boy way back in February, they have also been struggling to keep up with their resolutions to match up to their performance in 2018. By this time last year, we already had Mukkabaaz, October, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero as well as Raazi.
To be very honest, June doesn’t look too promising for those who look for a little bit more than mindless entertainment from Bollywood. Hollywood has done well so far though; with films like Captain Marvel, John Wick 3, and Avengers: Endgame.
So here’s what we are and aren’t so much looking forward to watching this month.
This is a Salman Khan film that seems to be more about Priyanka Chopra leaving it for better things in life, than anything else. To be fair, since most Bhai films are actually very low on any real content, this is a clever way to keep the buzz going. Are we excited for this one? Not really. After all if you’ve seen one Bhai film, you’ve seen them all.
Men In Black: International
Marvel superheroes Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are coming together to save the Earth from being destroyed, yet again. Only this time they will be in a different universe, the Men In Black spin-off series. If you loved the original starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith and stan the Thor-Valkyrie duo from MCU, then this one is a hell yaas!
After unleashing epic doses of toxic masculinity wrapped up neatly in cool filmmaking techniques with Arjun Reddy, director Sandeep Vanga is about to do more of the same with Kabir Singh. Starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, Singh is the north Indian bro of Reddy we didn’t need to meet. They’re same same and no different at all, if the trailer is anything to go by. Those who have seen the original and not gone gaga over it, stay away from this remake.
Yes, we loved Sophie Turner as Sansa on Game of Thrones. Yes, we loved the X-men series. Most of it anyway. And Jean Grey’s character was also kinda cool too (let’s be frank, Raven always seemed cooler). But will X-Men: Dark Phoenix really be able to offer something brand-new and refreshing about the character that we haven’t seen before already? Only time will tell. As of now, we are only moderately curious about this one.
Inspired by true life events, this Ayushmann Khurrana starrer takes its name from Article 15 of the Indian Constitution that prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. Mulk and Ra.One director Anubhav Sinha is directing the film, and we’re fairly curious about this one.
