Hindi Films to Watch Out for in May 2018
OnRecord Staff · April 28, 2018 · 2 Minute Read
102 Not Out stars two living legends of Hindi cinema: Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. The former plays a 102 year-old trying to become the world’s oldest living man, while the latter plays his 75 year-old son.
The music for 102 Not Out has been composed by Salim-Sulaiman, and will feature performances by Armaan Malik, Javed Ali, and Sonu Nigam. The two songs that have already been released are both full of joy, with Arijit Singh showing his versatility in the salsa-inspired “Bachche Ki Jaan,” and the legendary actors shining as vocalists in the peppy “Badumbaaa.” We can’t wait to hear the rest of the songs, and watch the film!
Alia Bhatt’s evolution from fresh-faced newcomer into one of Bollywood’s finest actresses continues with the upcoming thriller Raazi. Set against the backdrop of the 1971 Indo-Pakistani war, the film promises to be a riveting one.
With a score from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics from national icon Gulzar (whose daughter, Meghna Gulzar, directed the film), Raazi promises to pack plenty of cinematic excitement alongside its beautiful music.
We’re expecting big things from Raazi, and we’re encouraged by the success of its music so far. The beautiful “Dilbaro,” sung by Harshdeep Kaur, Vibha Saraf, and Shankar Mahadevan, and the majestic “Raazi,” sung by a certain Arijit Singh, have already climbed the Saavn charts. We’re looking forward to seeing the film, and listening to its songs, on the big screen, surrounded by sound.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero
Does Mumbai finally have its answer to Gotham’s Dark Knight? The trailer for Bhavesh Joshi Superhero certainly suggests so. Starring Harshvardhan Kapoor as the titular hero (or perhaps anti-hero), we’re expecting an exhilarating, action-packed journey through the Mumbai underworld. From relentless fight scenes to adrenaline-fueled street chases, we expect this one to keep us on the edge of our seats.
Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran
May seems to be the month for period dramas. Aside from Raazi, which is based on a true story from the 70s, we’re also looking forward to Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran.
Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, fronted by John Abraham, tells the story of India’s successful nuclear test in Pokhran, Rajasthan. We’re expecting a strong performance from Abraham, who stars as a captain in the Indian Army, as well as memorable roles from the talented Diana Penty and the charismatic Boman Irani.
