The second month of 2017 is over and if we take stock of things at the box office, it has been a pretty average time. Where Shah Rukh Khan‘s Raees and Hrithik Roshan‘s Kaabil made January a golden, Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 saved the day for February. Now it’s March, the last month of the first quarter of 2017 and the films that it presents have the calibre to set box office on fire. If that happens, the first quarter will close on a high and will set a precedent for rest of the year. Let us tell you why we are hopeful that March will be merrier!
Release date: March 3
Vidyut Jammwal is back making us freak out with his stunts. The man can do unbelievable action! The first film made our jaws drop to the floor. It was unlike anything that we have seen before in action movies. Thanks to that Commando managed to make good money at the box office. Same is expected of its sequel which takes on black money this time. We can’t really say that the topic is relevant but the war on black money started by PM Modi is still on. So may be audience will appreciate. But we would rather focus on the stunts Jammwal will perform because from the trailer it seems, the actor has a huge affinity for the windows through which he squeezes himself out.
Badrinath ki Dulhania
Release date: March 10
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan will be back in yet another romantic entertainer Badrinath Ki Dulhania which is part of the Dulhania series, as Karan Johar likes to call it. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania was a hit and BKD promises to repeat the feat. We definitely have a lot of hopes pinned on this film. Alia and Varun’s chemistry has been lucky. They have done two films together as of now and both have been hits. So this pair has a 100 percent track record which makes BKD a film to look out for.
Release date: March 24
Anushka Sharma is back with her second production venture Phillauri which seems borrowed from The Corpse Bride. The plotline is definitely interesting but the actors we are rooting for here are Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma. The latter is looking really amazing in the film. Comedy definitely is his thing. As for Diljit, it will be his second film after Udta Punjab and that alone is a reason enough to make us go gaga over him.
Release date: March 31
Taapsee Pannu wowed us with her stunts in Baby. That was the highlight of film and perhaps guessing the same, the makers decided to come up with her story. Naam Shabana sees her packing a powerful punch. There’s also Akshay Kumar in the film although in a special sequence. We loved the trailer and now can’t wait to see the film.
