Mumbai, Jan 19 (Big Wire) In 2015, several films, big or small, did well at box office. However, no movie was a blockbuster in real sense except Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring Salman Khan.
Though huge hits, Salman’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale should have given more returns on their high investments. Same applies to another big hit Bajirao Mastani. And it was a year that did not have an Aamir Khan release.
There are several big ticket films to look for in 2016. Some may hit the jackpot at the box office and some may garner critical appreciation. Here is a list of 10 big movies that people are talking about most:
Releasing on January 22, this Akshay Kumar starrer is based on a true event during Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
The plot seems interesting, so is the female lead Nimrat Kaur, who starred in the critically acclaimed The Lunchbox.
Ghayal Once Again
It will be interesting to watch how audiences respond to the sequel of 1990’s blockbuster movie Ghayal when it releases on February 5 as the original had catapulted action hero Sunny Deol to number one position in Bollywood.
Now though Sunny is past his superstar days, the film produced and directed by him still holds promise.
It will be superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s first release. The film produced by Yash Raj Films has a lot of buzz.
It will be released on April 15.
It is the second film of youth heart-throb Tiger Shroff, who debuted last year with Heropanti. His first film was a surefire hit.
Will Jackie Shroff’s son click again when Baaghi release on April 29?
