Kedarnath

What it's about: Set on the 14 km pilgrimage from Gauri Kund to the the 2000-year-old Kedarnath temple of Lord Shiva, the film revolves around the love story of Mansoor and Mukku, which occurs alongside happenings inspired by the 2013 Uttarkhand floods.

Why it may work: Rajput and Khan's pairing looks beautiful on-screen and with Sara's off-screen on-point interviews, she seems to be a promising talent. Amit Trivedi's soulful tracks are a bonus to ensure and auditory celebration along with the visual extravaganza.

Mortal Engines

Who's in it: Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Robert Sheehan, Stephen Lang, Leila George, Frankie Adams

Why it may work: Sci-fi has always been a big crowd-puller for most. Christian Rivers, Oscar-winning visual effects artist's debut on the film will also be an element to look out for.

Kavacham

Who's in it: Tamannaah Bhatia, Atul Sharma, Sundeep Kishan, Larissa Bonesi, Navdeep

Why it may work: Tamannaah's portrayal of the modern complicated girl will be a fresh portrayal for most audiences.
