‘Sooryavanshi’, ’83’, ‘Coolie No 1’, ‘Brahmastra’, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ – Films which won’t go the OTT way during lockdown
We are in lockdown 4.0 which is has brought in ease in some restrictions. One thing that movie lovers are dying for is to head to their nearest theatres, grab their popcorn, and watch their favourite stars. However, due to the rules and regulations of the lockdown and the social distancing culture stepping in, we are sure it’s still a long way ahead for theatres to open up. However, films like ‘Ghoomketu’, ‘Gulabo Sitabo’, ‘Shakuntala Devi’ and many others have decided to go the OTT way and recover their investment into the making of the movie. But there are a few films, which insist on having a theatrical release, and will not take the digital way to release amidst lockdown.
Here are some of the big-ticket films waiting to entertain audiences at the theatres only:
Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ will be the latest addition to the director’s ‘cop universe’ films. The film is supposed to be next in series after ‘Singham’, ‘Singham Returns‘ and ‘Simmba’ – three of Shetty’s earlier films set in the same universe. With Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and Ranveer Singh in the same frame, this film is clearly one of the most exciting action thrillers to come out of Bollywood with many likening it to Hollywood sequels. Katrina Kaif too has an interesting role in the film. Katrina and Akshay are coming back after a long gap, and audiences are dying to witness their chemistry once again.
‘The Forgotten Army’ director Kabir Khan’s next is the retelling of the Indian cricket team’s glorious victory in the 1983 World Cup. The film stars Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev and a huge ensemble of actors as the victorious team members. The film which was originally slated for an April 2020 release is waiting for a post-lockdown release and given the love that cricket enjoys in the country, it is likely to be a winner at the box-office. Deepika Padukone too has an extended cameo in the film as Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev.
‘Coolie No. 1’
‘Coolie No. 1’ clearly stands out as one of the most awaited films of 2020. A comedy caper directed by David Dhawan, this Varun Dhawan-Sara Ali Khan starrer is a remake of the 1995 classic. Every look of the film has had audiences wanting more. Given the past successes of the director-producer duo of David Dhawan and Vashu Bhagnani, this film has trade pundits predicting a ‘blockbuster’ at the box-office.
‘Brahmāstra’s part one of three is an upcoming fantasy film starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt. The film is said to be one of the most ambitious projects in Bollywood. The film has already undergone multiple delays, which has multiplied audiences curiosity about the film. The film is being directed by Ayan Mukerji and has been produced by Karan Johar.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha’
Aamir Khan‘s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is an adaptation of the American classic ‘Forrest Gump’. Aamir Khan known for his near-perfect performances has already created huge expectations with his ‘look’ for the film. In typical Aamir style, this film is set to hit theatres in Christmas. The film is directed by Advait Chandan who previously made ‘Secret Superstar’ which was one of the most successful Indian films in China. The film is being produced by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao. Kareena Kapoor too has an interesting role in the movie and she is coming back with Aamir after a really long time. Their chemistry is to watch out for.
Be it the sizzling chemistry of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan in the remake of the iconic ‘Coolie No. 1′ or India’s historic cricket victory in Kabir Khan’s ’83’ or the latest edition to the cop universe films with Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ – audiences have a superb line-up waiting to release. Just like the makers of the films, we are too expecting the movies to not release on OTT and hit theatres after the lockdown and the Coronavirus scare is over. These films are sure huge entertainers and deserve to release on theatres before they go forward for an OTT viewership.
