Commando 2: The Black Money Trail

What's It About: As is evident from the title of the film, the protagonist is on a mission to eradicate the evil of black money.

Who's In It: Vidyut Jamwal, Adah Sharma, Esha Gupta and Shefali Shah.

Why It May Work: The prequel saw the fans get awestruck by the stunts of Vidyut Jamwal. Going by the teasers, this one is going to be even better. Shefali Shah's acting chops and Adah and Esha's presence will serve as the icing on the cake.

Commando 2 is directed by Deven Bhojani.

Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai

What's It About: A diverse range of people come together and share their life experiences with each other. They celebrate life as they find certain aspects that are universal to human journey.

Who's In It: Arbaaz Khan, Ashutosh Rana, Manjari Fadnis, Supriya Pathak, Rati Agnihotri and Prem Chopra.

Why It May Work: The ensemble cast and the universal theme that the film addresses.

Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai is directed by  Keshhav Panneriy.



What's It About: It's the year 2029. There have been no recorded mutant births since 25 years. Wolverine and Proffessor Xavier live in isolation, and their mutant powers have gone astray. They team up to save 12-year-old Laura, who has Wolverine-like mutant abilities. But with her mutant powers, it looks like Laura might not need saving.

Who's In It: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen

Why It May Work: This is the last time we are going to see Hugh Jackman play the role that made him famous two decades ago. And Wolverine is very popular with the comic-book loving audience.

Logan is directed by James Mangold

Patriots Day

What's It About: This is the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists responsible. Mark Wahlberg is back in his tried and tested role as a tough policeman trying to do good.

Who's In It: Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon and JK Simmons.

Why It May Work: A story of cops catching terrorists is popular with the audience, and Mark Wahlberg excels at playing the cop (remember him in The Departed?) so the film might do well.

Patriots Day
is directed by Peter Berg.
