Although Fukrey wasn’t supported by a very popular cast, it did have a great storyline and good acting, and it’s back with a sequel. Pulkit Sharma reprises his role as Hunny, Varun Sharma reprises his as Choocha, Ali Fazal reprises his as Zafar, and Richa Chadda reprises hers as Bholi Punjaban. Bholi was just released from prison and is in no mood to spare the person who put her away in the first place! There’s a twist in the story since Choocha can now predict the future, and of course this ability can only bring laughter.

Indian sci-fi is hard to come by, but this picture is hitting screens very shortly. It’s Pritish Chakraborty’s second film as a writer and director, but it will also mark his debut as an actor. Actor Annu Kapoor plays an eccentric genius scientist while the versatile Sanjay Mishra plays a miserly Bengali businessperson. Mangal Ho’s story is about the first Indian civilization on Mars.

Everyone loves a sports film, and that’s exactly what Mukkabaaz is. A low-caste boxer trains at a gym controlled by a local don known as Mishra. He falls in love with Mishra’s niece, but Mishra doesn’t approve of this match. The boxer works on winning the girl’s — and her hand in marriage — while also becoming a successful boxer. But he must also avoid retaliation from the don!

If one sci-fi film wasn’t enough for you, you’ll be pleased to know that another is following with 2.0. The film is a sequel to the successful 2010 Tamil film Enthiran, and it features Rajnikanth reprising his roles as Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti. Shankar held initial discussions with Kamal HaasanAamir Khan and Vikram about taking on another role, though none of the three actors signed on to appear in the film. Subsequently, the team held talks with Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger for the role, and he agreed to work on the film for a record remuneration.

Unfortunately, producers had to decide not to take on Schwarzenegger, and after talks with many actors — including Hrithik Roshan and Neil Nitin Mukesh — they decided to cast Akshay Kumar. The official launch coincided with Rajnikanth’s birthday, and the music was composed by award winner A.R. Rahman.

Akshay Kumar doesn’t often have two films come out on the same day! Padman is based on his wife, Twinkle Khanna’s, book, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, which is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham. The Tamil Nadu–based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham revolutionized menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkin machine. The film was due to release in April but was moved back three months.
