Will These Mega-Movies Bring The Audience Back ?



2020 proved  a losing battle for movie theatres. They failed  to lure back the audiences. But  2021 may  turn the tide . There is  a slew of seductive movies lined  up which audiences  would hopefully find irresisitible.

1.     Sooryavanshi:  The redoubtable Rohit Shetty teams up with Akshay ‘Jubilee Star’ Kumar  for  the first time. Need we say anything more? Ajay Devgan and  Ranveer Singh make guest appearances.  Katrina  Kaif adds to the  oomph factor.

2.     Gangubai Kathiawadi: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s gangster epic takes Alia Bhatt to  another level of performance. She is  virtually reborn  in the avatar of a brother Madame and  dreaded don. SLB considers this his best  work to date.

7.     No Time  To Die: The  new James  Bond film is  supposed to be  so  slick and  tactile that cine -soothsayers are  already  predicting this  would  be  the  one to  bring the film-viewing  community across  the globe back into theatres.The  25th  James Bond film is also the  last time we will see Daniel Craig  as  007.Yup, it is time to start preparing for  the  movie theatres again.

8.     Mission  Impossible 7: Shot through the Covid, the  title  of this  fabulous  franchise is rationalized  on this occasion by  the hardships it faced during the  shooting. Tom  Cruise  is the world’s most popular actor. If  he can’t do it , who can?
