Anticipated Hit Bollywood Films in 2011
This year so far I haven’t seen a Bollywood film that can be regarded as a hit film yet. I may be wrong, but I think that is the general feel among many people. No film so far this year has created the kind of vibe that we can associate with hit films. Signs like many people talking about it and going to cinemas just for the film, leaving everything behind. A film, no matter what that they want to watch. That’s what I call a really hit film or a blockbuster, because such films usually profit a lot at cinemas as well. However, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Thank you’ was good film. Thank You is about three married men trying to have some fun outside their marriage. Akshay Kumar plays a detective who specializes in extra-marital relationships. Some scenes in this film were shot in Vancouver and Toronto, Canada and Bangkok. Other Bollywood films which have focused around a similar concept are Masti, No Entry, Shaadi No.1 and to a certain extent, Do knot Disturb. Another film starred by Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Vinay pathak released on April 29, 2011 was also a good film.

For the reasons mentioned above, I am embarking in a mission to find out whether there are any upcoming Bollywood films that have the potential to be really hit films. The good news is yes there are few films that I can think will really rock the cinemas as well as of course, people’s sitting rooms. I know you want to know this.
Well, I think the upcoming Shah Rukh Khan film ‘Ra.One’ will make a big splash and will rule the box office. Hindi science- fiction superhero film ‘Ra.One’ is produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s production company ‘Red Chilies Entertainment’. The leading stars are Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. “Ra.One” means “Random Access – Version 1.0″. The film was scheduled to be released on 3 June 2011, but was later pushed back due to extensive post production work. The film is set for release on October 26, 2011.

Another Shah Rukh Khan film that is in pipeline to be released this year is action thriller film “DOn 2: The Chase Continues’, produced and directed by Farhan Akhtar. It is the sequel to the 2006 film, Don: The Chase Continues, which itself is a remake of the 1978 film Don. The film stars Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Om Puri, reprising their roles from the previous film, with Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor playing new characters.
Don 2: The Chase Continues
Shooting for Don 2 began from October 10, 2010 in Berlin, Germany. Also, Shahrukh Khan was asked to bulk up for the movie and to develop a six-pack. As of December 2010, shooting has ended in Berlin, Germany and actors have returned back to India. As of February 2011, the actors had been flown to Malaysia for the second phase of the shoot whichlasted for a month. Filming in Malaysia ended on March 22nd, 2011. The film is set to be released on December 23, 2011.
As of Aamir khan, his upcoming film ‘Zakhmi’ unfortunately will not be released in 2011, but will be released in The film is directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Aamir Khan himself. It will star Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor, which is a police film, as seen in the picture. Why I mention this film here is that it was originally intended to be released late this year, but to avoid a clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Don2: The Chase Continues’, the releasing is postponed for 2012. For many days, it was untitled and only recently they revealed the title ‘Zakhmi’.Expect Aamir in ‘Doom 3′ with Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra as well.
Another interesting film to be released a comedy film ‘Double Dhamaal’. It is the sequel to the 2007 film, Dhamaal. The film stars most of the actors from the previous film (Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Dutt, Jaaved Jaaferi, Aashish Chaudhary). New additions to the cast include Malika Sherawat and Kangana Ranaut as in the prequel did not star any actress.

The upcoming two films of Saif Ali Khan also could be hit films. ‘Arakashan’ starring Amitab Bachcan, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone is a high voltage drama based on one of the most controversial policies of caste based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions.
