The angry “young man” is back!

“Bbuddah… Hoga Terra Baap” Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Sonu Sood, Minissha Lamba, Sonal Chauhan, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Markand Deshpande; directed by Puri Jagannadh; music by Vishal-Shekhar.

Diehard Amitabh Bachchan fans will surely want to see the legendary actor reprise the “angry young man” role of Vijay he made famous in films such as “Deewar” and “Zanjeer.” This Ram Gopal Varma production stars the original Don and Shahenshah as a retired hitman settled in Paris who returns to India for one last assignment. Despite his age, he acts and feels like a youngster, creating many problems in the process. During the job, he comes face to face with his past and his motivation for the hit gets altered. A lot of buzz has been created around his super stylized avatar. Bachchan even sings the title song in his distinct baritone voice. Watch for Raveena Tandon, who makes a special appearance in the catchy song, “Main Chandigarh di star.”




Imran Khan and buddies try to flee from the bad guys in “Delhi Belly.”

“Delhi Belly” Starrring Imran Khan, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Vir Das, Shenaz Treasurywala, Poorna Jagannathan; directed by Abhinay Deo; music by Ram Sampath.

Billed as the meanest comedy you’ll ever see, this Aamir Khan production revolves around three bachelors sharing a flat in Delhi. Imran Khan plays Tashi Malhotra. He’s about to be married but still isn’t sure if his fiancée Sonia, played by Shenaz Treasurywala, is “the one.” Vir Das is Arup who’s not sure who he should be more upset with, his girlfriend who just dumped him or his annoying boss. Kunal Roy Kapur plays Nitin, who eats some street vendor food only to get a bad case of Delhi Belly (a euphemism for traveler’s diarrhea.) The three buddies seem like regular guys except for one thing, they are on the hit list of a deadly crime syndicate. The makers call this crime caper bold and irreverent, and not for kids. Aamir Khan has said those who can't identify with disrespectful and unclean language ought to stay away. Watch for Khan himself who makes an appearance in an item song, which pays tribute to the Bollywood disco era.


Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol hit the road in “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.”

“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” Starring Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif, Kalki Koechlin; directed by Zoya Akhtar; music by Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy.

This film is about three friends bonding during a road trip. Abhay Deol is Kabir, a wealthy, articulate young man who works in construction. He’s just recently engaged and wants to go on a holiday with his two best school friends Imraan and Arjun. Hritik Roshan plays Arjun, now a financial trader in London with goals to make it big fast. Initially, Arjun doesn’t want to leave work but then agrees. Farhan Akhtar is Imraan, a copywriter by profession but bohemian poet by heart. This dream trip was supposed to happen after college with each person picking their ultimate sport to do which the other two have to join in, whether they like it or not. Kabir’s fiancée, Natasha, played by Kalki Koechlin is nervous about the bachelor trip. After some cajoling the three guys meet in Barcelona. There they meet Laila, played by Katrina Kaif; she’s a fashion student who takes time off to teach diving in Spain. The adventure helps the friends resolve their differences, face their fears and also seize the moment. Shooting took place on location in Spain, Egypt and India.
