Jawan (In Cinemas)

The Baadshah of Bollywood is back – with Deepika Padukone in a special appearance – sending SRK fans into a frenzy for the second time this year! Joined by Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi and Yogi Babu, with Anirudh holding the musical reins, audiences should expect the South stars to steal the show in this Hindi/Tamil/Telugu action blockbuster. If Pathaan  packed a punch for you, Jawaan just might be the next masala movie you’ve been craving for.

Jaane Jaan (Netflix)

In this upcoming Hindi whodunnit thriller, Bebo seems to have serenaded the wrong crowd. Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma are the talented trio on the search for answers that may hiding be in plain sight.

Salaar: Part 1- Ceasefire (In Cinemas)

A roaring and rowdy rebel on the big screen – what more could Prabhas fans ask for? With this only being the first part of an upcoming series, audiences can definitely expect plenty of twists and turns in this Telugu action drama. Fingers crossed Prabhas can redeem himself after his ‘unique’ performance earlier this year (seriously, after all the Adipurush memes let’s hope that was a one-off for Indian cinema’s Baahubali).

Release Date: 28 September


The Great Indian Family (In Cinemas)

No matter how many ups and downs an Indian family may have, love will always prevail in binding you together. However, sometimes the chaos can land you in more trouble than you expected.

Haddi (Zee5)

Is there anything that Nawazuddin can’t do? Whether he happens to be adorned as a ruthless transgender woman or a gangster tightly gripping his crown, this crime thriller will be nonetheless power-packed.

Bambai Meri Jaan (Prime Video)

In a city where the streets are littered with secrets, crime lords will do anything to silence their enemies. Produced by Hindi cinema powerhouses including Farhan Akhtar, Kay Kay Menon leads a dazzling cast in this crime thriller series. If you’re not hooked already, know this could possibly be the closest Bollywood gets to a Peaky Blinders remake.

Chandramukhi 2 (In Cinemas)

Before Bollywood’s beloved Bhool Bhulaiyaa, there was Kollywood’s Chandramukhi. The story continues with the upcoming sequel to the Tamil horror comedy classic starring Kangana Ranaut, Raghava Lawrence and Vadivelu. Although you can expect some laughs, I’m also sure this flick isn’t for the faint-hearted.

Buhey Bariyan (In Cinemas)

The patriarchy stands no chance in Punjab with this powerful Punjabi film showcasing the potential all women have in creating change. This comedy-drama release follows one group of women whose greatest weapons are their voices (and their chappals). Two queens of Punjabi cinema, Neeru Bajwa and Nirmal Rishi, put their best foot forward in an empowering story that celebrates #girlpower.

Sukhee (In Cinemas)

Just as the title suggests, this upcoming Hindi slice-of-life release is filled with so much happiness you’ll be smiling before even entering the cinema. Shilpa Shetty plays a Punjabi housewife who seeks to find her own happiness after a turbulent turn of events. Grab the family together for the heart-warming tale of strength and self-discovery.

Release Date: 22 September


Skanda – The Attacker (In Cinemas)

Rugged mobsters, romantic montages and one rowdy hero – an epic combination bound to win audiences over. This Telugu action entertainer takes things up a notch as no one will get in the way of Ram Pothineni seeking justice. I think Indian audiences should now accept that nobody does action as well as South Indian superstars.
