More than half of 2014 has past and many of the most awaited films of the year have already been released, with more or less success in the box office. But there are many months left until the end of the year and B-town is finalizing a bunch of new films to entertain the audience.
Here’s a selection of films to be released during the rest of 2014:
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut is the major release of this year’s Eid, which features Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. The remake of a Telugu film of the same name, Kick tells the story of Devi (Khan), a man who lives only for his ‘Kick’ aka an adrenaline rush, and who will eventually become a thief.

Shraddha Kapoor who made her debut with the 2010 film Teen Patti shot to fame with the massive hit Aashiqui 2 and has been on a roll since its release. Now after the success of her recent film Ek Villain, Shraddha will next be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider.
Interestingly, the actress does not just reprise the role of Arshia in the film, but will also be seen crooning. In fact Shraddha will be singing a traditional Kashmiri song along with her costar Tabu, titled 'Roshe Valle'. Earlier, Shraddha had sung the track 'Galliyan' in her last release Ek Villain, that went on to become one of the most heard tracks. Apart from singing in the film, both Tabu and Shraddha will apparently also perform live at the music launch of Haider.
Shahid Kapoor has said that he found the task of playing the classic Shakespearean character Hamlet to be very demanding and required a lot from him as an actor. Having spoken about his role at the trailer launch of Haider, Shahid will be seen opposite Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu and Irrfan Khan in Vishal Bhardwaj’s forthcoming directorial; which also marks the third instalment of his Shakespearean adaptations (the other two being Maqbool and Omkara). Shahid also worked previously with Vishal Bhardwaj in the hit film Kaminey, which won him a lot of critical acclaim.
“Vishal sir gave me the best role of my life in Kaminey. It is amazing to work with him again. It is a rare opportunity and very few actors get to play Hamlet,” said Shahid at the trailer launch. “This is one role that makes you feel very inadequate as an actor. When I was on the sets, »

We gave you a sneak peek yesterday with the posters and now we finally get to see Shahid Kapoor as Haider. Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, Haider, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, is his take on Hamlet and is the third in his Shakespearean trilogy, which he feels he was destined to make.
Calling Shahid the ‘finest actor in his age group’ the director said in a recent interview, “Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, has some really long monologues and so does Haider. Listening to Shahid deliver those wordy pieces on my headphones I was reminded of Naseer (Naseeruddin Shah) and Pankaj Kapur.”
Check out the trailer!

Popular Bollywood celebrities from Alia Bhatt to Salman Khan have given their voice for some melodious tracks in their films and now joining the league is Tabu. The actress who will soon be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj's Indian adaptation of the Shakespearean classic Hamlet, Haider, will be recording with the filmmaker for a song titled 'Roshe Valle'. Initially, Tabu had just sung the track as a part of her act in the film. However, filmmaker Vishal was so impressed with her way of singing the track that he immediately decided to add the song as a part of the film's album. The two will soon be recording a new version for the album. Produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Disney India, Haider also stars Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Kay Kay Menon, Irrfan Khan among others and it is slated to release on October 2. »
Tabu, a very old favorite of Gulzar and his family, is back in the family's fold. The actress who considers the poet-filmmaker her father-figure has starred in his last two directorial ventures Maachis and Hu Tu Tu. Tabu also played the lead in Gulzar Saab's daughter's directorial debut Filhaal. Now she's back in Meghna's new directorial project entitled Talwar. Tabu steps into a role originally offered to Shefali Shah. Talwar also stars Irrfan Khan and Sohum Shah, that wonderful actor from Anand Gandhi's Ship Of Theseus. Gulzar Saab's reticent daughter Meghna Gulzar began shooting for her third feature film on Tuesday morning with minimum fanfare. The project has been entitled Talwar and the film is said to be based on the Aarushi Talwar murder case. Apparently, Meghna's father has given the film its title; just as he has titled Megha's two earlier feature films Filhaal and Just Married. »

One wasn’t expecting much more than headbanging cheap thrills from the new Bollywood action movie “Jai Ho,” in which Salman Khan, a.k.a. The Muscles from Mumbai (that sobriquet is our own invention), carries to a new level of slapdash vulgarity the blunt-force, post-”Matrix” style of action moviemaking that rules the roost now in Hindi cinema. When you set your sites that low, and still emerge disappointed two-and-a-half-hours later, that’s a sad day at the movies. Because Salman Khan is one the fabled Three Khans, Bollywood’s top film stars for over two decades, the earnings of “Jai Ho” are being measured against the recent huge hits of Shah Rukh Khan (“Chennai Express”) and Aamir Khan (“Dhoom 3″). At $3.5 million for its first two days of domestic release, about half what those record-breaking pics pulled in, “Jai Ho” is so far considered only an “average” hit.

Take any day in your life that you wish you had a helping hand. A day you may have forgotten your wallet, when you needed to pay for your bus ticket. A day your car broke down, when you had to go to an interview. What if a stranger gave you that helping hand? No questions asked and in return, didn’t ask for money or a favour. Just that you help another when the chance came to you. Would you? Jai Ho shows us how a common man that left his army life, takes on the fight to help humanity, and for a bit of masala, bashes a few bad guys along the way.
Based on the concept from Pay It Forward (2000), A. R. Murugadoss’ designed the power packed story for his film Stalin (2006). Being the remake season that it was (or is) the film’s bumper success made »

We really can't judge a Salman Khan-starrer by normal yardsticks. If this film starred another superstar, it would be evaluated from another perspective.
But Salman is...Salman! He doesn't desire nor seek anyone's approval. The characters he plays also display the same level of arrogant self-worth. When he roars against corruption, the Dolby sound quivers in approval.
Say welcome to the uncommon common man. He is tough, he is gutsy. And he doesn't believe in common courtesy. He delivers a mean punch when required. But at home he's just your regular guy snuggling up to his plump super-mom, confiding in his. »

Salman Khan! Just hearing his name evokes images of Bollywood and the perfect filmi hero. His films are always blockbusters with their masala mix of great scenes, killer action, colorful dance and, of course, romance! He Is Bollywood! With Jai Ho, which releases on Friday, Salman Khan again stars in a movie with all of those components but then takes it up an emotional notch. The film, directed by Sohail Khan, tells the story of Jai, an upright common man who is fighting a solitary war against corruption and injustice. Honest and incorruptible, he has made it his mission to help as many people as he can. His mantra is quite simple: help somebody and then request that person to lend a helping hand to somebody else; thus forming an ever expanding circle of people helping each other. What happens next? Well, you’ll have to find out when you see the film. »
