10 Most Anticipated Bollywood Movies of 2017
Posted: Jan 25 2017

The New Year 2017 brings with it hopes of change. A lot of us positively hope that this will be the year when everything will change. The same is true of Bollywood too. Every year, we hold our breath waiting for the most promising movie projects, hoping against hope that Bollywood will mature out of its shenanigans, and deliver us at least a few movies that truly make us go ‘Wow!’. Here is a list of such most anticipated movies that will be hitting the screen in 2017. Have a look at them.


It is customary for big budget Hollywood movies to engage in marketing campaigns that last well over a year. Bollywood rarely witnesses anything like it with most movies kicking off their ads with only three months to the D-day. Now, Raees is one movie that breaks all those customs. Its teaser was released in 2015. That’s almost a little short of two years for advertising. Well, hardly anything about SRK is ordinary, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. This SRK starrer also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan. For SRK, this is a huge step in terms of experimentation, for he is trying to get back in the game after delivering repeated non-performers (relatively that is) on the box office. SRK plays the role of an underworld don, Raees, and the immensely talented Siddiqui is playing an officer hell bent on taking Raees down. It has all the ingredients for a blockbuster hit. Plus, you don’t have to wait long. The movie is set to release on 25th January.


Very few Bollywood directors have shown the willingness to try challenging projects like period dramas, and even fewer have been able to do justice to them. Think 1920. To be fair to them, even masterpieces like Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! hardly end up making good money for the producers. For this, Vishal Bharadwaj deserves special credit for being daring enough to have a period drama for his 2017 release. Rangoon will see two actors coming together for the first time – Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. This is especially important because they have a …. Errr … history. Sort of (Read Kareena Kapoor Khan). The fact that there is only one leading actress – Kangana Ranaut – in the movie does not make the situation any better. The story is set against the backdrop of World War II, which should lend it an interesting look and feel. It is slated for release on 24th February.

Jagga Jasoos

Can you believe it! Jagga Jasoos has not yet hit the screens! The shooting for the movie began way back in 2013. But, repeated delays, and numerous problems meant that the production suffered. No, the falling out between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif reportedly had nothing to do with it. They continued shooting even after breaking up. In any case, there is no doubt that Anurag Basu is going to deliver anything short of excellence. Moreover, from the looks of it, it appears that the movie will be full of adventure and romance. Wait, that eerily sounds familiar to Barfi! Hmmm. Well, we’ll just have to wait till 7th April to see what it turns out to be.

Dutt Sanjay

Dutt commands a huge fan following that very few actors can match. His collaborations with Rajkumar Hirani have left the audience rolling on the floor with laughter multiple times. This time, Hirani is taking his friendship with Sanjay Dutt to a whole new level. His movie, Dutt, is a biopic one of the Bollywood’s toughest, funniest and most controversial actors, Sanjay Dutt himself. He will be portrayed in the movie by Ranbir Kapoor, who has proved that he is able to take on any kind of project. With Hirani, Sanjay Dutt, and Ranbir Kapoor working under the same roof on this one, Bollywood simply can’t wait until December for this movie to release.

The Ring

Imtiaz Ali has proven his mettle as a director in Bollywood. Whether it is Black Friday or Highway, he has always managed to take his audience on an emotional rollercoaster. This time, he has SRK and Anushka Sharma in the leading roles for The Ring. To put simply, nothing can go wrong with this one. This is his first time working with SRK, and it will be interesting to see how they work together. Moreover, this will be the first time since Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi that SRK and Anushka are working together. Their chemistry was perfect then, and there is no reason for that to change now. The movie is slated for release on 11th August.

Tubelight Kabir

Khan is one of the most sought after directors in Bollywood today. He has managed to deliver repeated hits over the past few years. When he is teamed up with Salman Khan, there is no stopping them. Ek Tha Tiger, Bajrangi Bhaijan, and Sultan stand testimony to their amazing partnership. Naturally, the two of them are working together again, and this time they are taking the audience back to 1962. That’s right, to the era of the Indo-China war.

 Jolly LLB 2

For the second installment, they have dropped Arshad Warsi and roped in Akshay Kumar. Guess the franchise grew too big for the guy who made it a success in the first place. That being said, Akshay Kumar has proved his talent in a variety of roles and the job of a lawyer from UP will not be too difficult. Yet, it will be a challenge for him to fill the shoes of Warsi who did a great job with the first movie. There are also Huma Qureshi, Sanjay Mishra, and Saurabh Shukla, all of whom are known for their acting skills. This one better live up to the hype, because the last one gave us guffaws that ended with our stomachs aching. Its release date is 10th February.


All of that glamor is yet to hit the head of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, for he continues to make movies that challenge him each time. His roles speak of a commitment from a man who doesn’t let fame get the best of him. His next flick, Haramkhor, had its own version of World War with CBFC, and it appears that
