Chhapaak to Tanhaji: 12 Bollywood Films To Look Out For In January 2020

Bollywood will have a busy first month of 2020! With almost a dozen films releasing in January, here are 12 films you should look forward to

1.     Bhangra Pa Le(3 January):

Putting to rest baseless  rumours that this  sparkling  homage to the Bhangra dance-form was  going straight to the OTT platform, producers  RSVP have lined up  this sprightly film as  the first theatrical release  of 2020. Vicky Kaushal’s kid brother  Sunny Kaushal will be seen locked in a  fierce Bhangra competition with  newcomer Rukshar. Lots of  colour, music and warmth promised.

2.     Sab Kushal Mangal(3 Januray):

Featuring  two debutant star kids .Ravi Kissan’s daughter Riva with Padmini Kolhapure’s son Priyaank. The redoubtable  Akshaye  Khanna  joins  in  this smalltown rom-com where  politics meets romance meets  the politics  of romance.Veteran  producer Nitin Manmohan’s daughter Prachi makes her debut as an independent  producer.Put your hands  together  for  bright  new talent.

3.     Chhapaak(10 January):

Meghna  Gulzar directs  Deepika Padukone in the true-life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. Going by the explosive results  of casting Alia Bhatt in her previous work Raazi, Ms Gulzar has  another critical and commercial winner on hand.

4.     Darbar(10 January):

The  inviolable Rajinikanth teams  up with Tamil cinema’s most successful director  Murugadoss for a  fast-paced Khaki actioner. Can’t get any bigger than this…Or  can it?

5.     Tanhaji(10 January): 

Ajay Devgan plays the  title role in  this strongly  nationalistic  costume  drama.  Mrs Devgan  ,Kajol joins in  the  mission to  resurrect an unsung  hero. Director  Om Raut knows his job. If only the  narrative doesn’t fly off into spurts of fantasy.

6.     Jai Mummy Di(17 January): 

Luv Ranjan the  hit director  of  Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety(and also the discoverer  of Kartik Aryan) gives us   a smalltown comedy directed by newcomer Navjot Gulati about a pair of lovers Sunny Singh and Sonnalli Seygall(yes, that’s how she  spells  her name) and their warring Mummys played  by  Poonam Dhillon and Supriya Pathak. Clearly  the Moms will take centrstage  in this seemingly fun  comedy.

7.     Panga(24 January):

Another female director the  gently persuasive Ashwini  Iyer Tiwary, telling another story  of  a true-life female hero. This  time it is a kabbaddi player  played  by the fearless Kangana Ranaut.  The film will  raise several issues  pertaining to a woman’s right  to  pursue her dreams and career after marriage  and  motherhood. It would be  a close call at the  National awards  between Kangana ‘s  kabaddi and Deepika’s acid attack.

8.     Street Dancer 3D(24 January): 

Varun Dhawan is Indian, Shradha Kapoor is  Pakistani and they will dance against  each other  until the two countries shake  hands. Well, at least that’s the spirit  of this feisty  dance film directed by  dance specialist Remo d’Souza . Prabhudheva who makes it a  point to be part of Remo’s  cinema  pops up to prop up Varun’s dance moves. More success guaranteed to Prabhu this time than Dabangg 2.

9.     Chhalang(30 January): 

Hansal Mehta returns  to the  quirky comic kingdom with Rajkummar Rao his own  Robert de  Niro. Producer  Luv Ranjan’s favourite  heroine Nushrat Bharucha joins in.The result  promises  to be pure magic.

10.  Happy Hardy & Heer(30  January) : 

Himesh Reshamiyya never gives  up. He  is back  romancing the tone. Singing and wooing  PYT  Sonia Mann. This  is Himesh’s  first double role. Isn’t that exciting!

11.  Jawani Jaan-e-Mann(January 30):

Saif Ali Khan  plays a middleaged man with a roving eye. Tabu plays  a calm mysterious character. Pooja Bedi’s  daughter Alaia makes her debut. Why do I get the feeling this would be similar to 2019’s Ajay Devgan  starrer De  De Pyar De?

12.  Gul  Makai(January  30):

Newcomer  Reem Sheikh plays  Malala Yousafzai. Need anything  more be said?
