The Big, Fat, Juicy 2013 Bollywood Movie Guide!!!

***The Big, Fat, Juicy 2013 Bollywood Movie Guide!!!***


Sometimes it helps to look back to walk ahead.

A close look at the top 10 grossing movies of 2012(see list below) will reveal a glaring lack of anything called a script. So how do you make money grosser in Hindi? It’s easy –

           * Get a big name that’ll draw in the crowds
           * Release in maximum number of screens on a holiday weekend.
           * Advertise like hell so as to recover it all in the first weekend.

Simble, na?

My Bollywood trends for 2013 are:

          * The birth of the 200cr club – movies that’ll make 200cr in the first week itself – think Salman Khan’s next, D3 and Krrish3.
            * The Hollywoods - After 'Life of Pi', 'Ice Age4' and 'Spiderman' doing extremely well in India, expect more Hollywood in Bollywood this year.
          * The rise of the script - with 'Kahaani', 'Vicky Donor', 'Barfi', 'Gangs of Wassepur', 'Paan Singh', 'Love Shuv' etc last year – see more script based stories tasting champagne this year.

(please read next line with drum-rolls in mind, thank you)



So with no further ado, presenting 'Le Big Bollywood' in 2013!!!


***The Big Fat Juicy Ones***

Dhoom3 (December 25th)

Arguably the biggest movie of the year is Dhoom 3. After raising the stature of the villain in both earlier versions (OMG, Hrithik was sooo freaking awesome in D2!!), D3 comes with the thinking Khan playing the baddie. Since its Aamir’s only movie this year coupled with the marketing savvy of Yash Raj Films, expect dhamakas with Dhoom 3.

Why you should watch it – For Aamir as a baddie and the crazy marketing that’ll make you do so.





Salman’s twins

Overhead - “Salman to officially do away with script or story for his next”. But seriously, anything Salman touches is gold. Add a semblance of a story and you get the highest grosser of 2012 – 'Ek Tha Tiger'. With no script, you still get 'Dabanng 2', the second highest grosser of 2012. Salman’s next is slated to be another home production, directed by another younger brother from the Khan-daan -> Sohail Khan; which is said to be a remake of Telugu flick, Chiranjeevi’s 'Stalin'.  And of course, it’s an Eid release.  But of course.

The other Salman flick of the year is 'Kick', which is still under development.  Oh ya, Chetan Bhagat debuts as screenplay writer with this one.

Why you should watch themArrey, hamra Sallu bhai ka phillum hai!




Krrish 3(Diwali)


India’s most legitimate super hero, Krissh (screw 'Ra.One') is coming back for Bollywood’s greatest movie-going season, Diwali.  With virtually no competition (yes, no SRK this year!!!), expect a bigger Diwali for Hrithik in '13.



Why you should watch it – for some awesome FX, a pumped up Hrithik and hello it’s Diwali J




The SRK movies


As of now, SRK seems to have a quiet year ahead with only two movies expected in ’13 – ‘Chennai Express’ with hit maker Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’. SRK’s traditional Diwali releases, this time, is being hijacked by Hritik, 'Chennai Express' is expected two weeks after Eid.  Farah Khan’s vehicle may be pushed to next year too.

Why you should watch it – for SRK of course.... How can you not???




Woh hai seedhey saadhey Akshay, Akshay..


Believe it or not, the biggest grossing star of 2012 was Akshay Kumar, with 5 of his 6 films turning hits. The man who is credited with starting the winning strategy of “charge high+make masala flicks+get huge opening” has few interesting ones lined up with 'Special Chabbi's, 'Naam Hai Boss' and 'Once Upon a time in Mumbaai Again'.  And with the latter two movies opening in June, surprise, surprise - Khiladi Kumar is the biggest challenger to Salman this Eid.



Why you should watch it – ‘Special Chabbis’ for the very cool 80s look and its from the guy who gave us the awesome 'A Wednesday', ‘Boss’ for the very cool masala flick that the original was (mallu movie 'Pokkiri Raja') and 'Mumbai' for the very cool original.




***The Others***

The Sequels


2013 also sees a high number if sequels with Race 2, Murder 3, Yamla Pagla Dewaana 2, Ragini MMS 2 and Shootout at Wadala, to name the popular ones. Of the lot, I’m excited about Race 2, only for John Abraham.


The Others

Contrary to popular perception, it is Ajay Devgun and not Sallu bhai, who is the remake-specialist with almost all of Devgun's last few movies remakes of Southern hits. In 2013 again, he comes back with a telugu remake, 'Himmatwaala'. Ya, Dependable Devgun will also be seen in Prakash Jha’s multi-starrer, Satyagraha.



The new superstar Randir Kapoor’s movies for ’13 are 'Besharam' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'. Expect some box office gold here.



yes, the text really reads "dekho, ,magar pyaar se..."

Some cool movies on my watchlist are Matru KiBijlee Ka Mandola' (for finding if it's gonna be kacha or banyaan), ABCD (for Prabhu Deva's rad moves n bad Hindi), Kai Po Che!(for finding if it's Chethan Bhagat's fourth mistake?) and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (for buffed-up-OMG!-Farhan).




More watch outs this year:

* Kamal Haasan is at it again – pioneering something! On Jan 10th , Kamal will release his magnum opus, Vishwaroopam on DTH platforms, a few hours before it hits the theatre. This is an India-first for such a big movie and lots of eyes are keenly watching Kamal’s move. 

*Considering that Bollywood is now on a remaking spree, there’s lot of original content being created down south. And a few big huge ones too - Rajini’s 'Kochadaiyaan' and Shankar’s ‘I’ will be buzz words this year. 

*The names to watch out are Deepika Padukone (gold digger!) and my real star of 2012, that marvelous man named Nawazuddin Siddiqui.



The Englissss phillums 

The 'Iron Man3' vs 'Man of Steel' battle will play out in India too. Also, with the 3D rereleases of favorites like Independence Day, Top Gun, Star Wars and more, expect more Hollywood in Bollywood this year.



So there you have it folks - 2012 was not really the year of doom (damn pesky Mayans!) – it was actually a great year for Bollywood. 

In 2013, picture abhi baakhi hai mere dost… 

Aur bhadiya bhi!   J



And like SRK and Farah Khan will saying a lot this year, here’s me wishing you lovely readers – “Happy New Year”

    I'm probably looking forward only to Matru... I trust only him for sensible movies of late. Special Chabbis also looks promising enough.

    But, I sure will watch all the others you know, just for SRK or Sallu bhai :)

    Happy New Year Raj. Have an awesome one and God bless you and 'Fuck Love'.
