The first half of 2018 has been very good for Bollywood. Uri: The Surgical Strike, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, Gully Boy, Kesari, Kabir Singh, Bharat, Total Dhamaal and others made a mark at the box office in the first half of 2019. Apart from the box office, most of the films also got thumbs up from the critics as well.

Now as we have entered the second half, let’s look at the list of interesting films to watch out for in the next six months…

Super 30

After having its release date changed multiple times, finally, Super 30 is slated to hit the screens on 12th July 2019. The movie, which is inspired by the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, has Hrithik Roshan in the lead role and it marks the Bollywood debut of TV actress Mrunal Thakur. The trailer and the songs of the film have created a good pre-release buzz.

Judgementall Hai Kya

Judgementall Hai Kya starring Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut in the lead role will be hitting the screens on 26th July 2019. It brings back Rao and Ranaut on the big screen after a gap of 5 years. The two starred together in 2014 release Queen which surely gave a boost to the career of both the actors. We can’t wait to watch this one on the big screen.

Khandaani Shafakhana

The trailer of Khandaani Shafakhana has impressed everyone. The best element of the film is that for the first time, we have an actress openly talking about sex and sexual problems. Sonakshi Sinha starrer looks damn interesting and let’s hope that it does well at the box office. The film will be hitting the screens on 2nd August 2019.

Mission Mangal

Jagan Shakti’s Mission Mangal has won the half race already as it has some amazing actors in it. The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Nitya Menon, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi. The film will mainly focus on the women behind the 2014’s Mars Orbiter Mission. It is slated to release on 15th August 2019.


Saaho is clearly one of the most awaited films of the year. The movie stars Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles and a few weeks ago, the teaser of the film was released and it impressed one and all. Saaho is expected to break box office records just like Prabhas’ last release Baahubali: The Conclusion.

Laal Kaptaan

Saif Ali Khan is not having a great run at the box office from the past couple of years. But this year, he has a very interesting film hitting the screens titled Laal Kaptaan. Saif will be seen playing the role of a Naga Sadhu in the film and the first look of the film had impressed us a lot. It will be hitting the screens on 6th September 2019.

Dream Girl

Ayushmann Khurrana gave a fantastic performance in the recently released film Article 15. The actor has a couple of releases in the second half of 2019 and one of them is Dream Girl. The first look of the film had Ayushmann wearing a saree and it cracked us up. The film also stars Nushrat Bharucha and it will be releasing on 13th September 2019.

YRF’s next with Hrithik and Tiger

Tiger Shroff has always stated that he has been a big fan of Hrithik Roshan. We will get to see both the actors together in YRF’s next. The untitled film will have Tiger and Hrithik pitted against each other, and we are expecting this one to be high on action and dance. Also starring Vaani Kapoor, it is slated to release on 2nd Oct 2019.

The Sky Is Pink

The Sky Is Pink will mark Priyanka Chopra’s comeback in Bollywood after a gap of more than three years. Do we need any other reason to watch the film? Fans of PeeCee, who have been waiting to watch her in a Bollywood film, finally their wait will be over on 11th October 2019. By the way, this might be Zaira Wasim’s last Bollywood film as she has decided to quit acting.

Housefull 4

Housefull, Housefull 2 and Housefull 3, successfully tickled our funny bones. Now the makers are all set to come up with the fourth instalment of the movie Housefull 4. It stars Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh, Pooja Hegde, Bobby Deol, and Kriti Kharbanda. The film has been in the news because of the sexual harassment allegations against Sajid Khan and Nana Patekar. Both of them decided to leave the film after the allegations against them. We are hoping this one to be a perfect Diwali gift.

Saand Ki Aankh

We have heard about the Shooter Dadis, Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar and have also seen them on the television in a reality show. But this Diwali it is time to witness their story on the big screen. Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar will be seen as Shooter Dadis on the big screen in Saand Ki Aankh.


After Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar will be once again seen together on the big screen in Bala. In the film, Ayushmann plays the role of a guy who has an issue of balding prematurely. Joining Ayushmann and Bhumi will be Yami Gautam. The film is slated to release on 22nd November 2019.


Moviegoers love to watch period war films on the big screen and this year we will get to witness the Battle of Panipat on the silver screen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat. Starring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Sanjay Dutt, Padmini Kolhapure and Zeenat Aman, Panipat is clearly one of the most awaited films of the year.

Dabangg 3

Finally, after waiting for so many years, Dabangg 3 went on floors this year and will be hitting the screens on 20th December 2019. The movie stars Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha along with Arbaaz Khan, Sudeep and Pramod Khanna. The film will showcase the young days of Chulbul Pandey and reportedly, it will also have another actress opposite Salman in the film.

Good News

The year 2019 will end with a Good News. Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh, and Kiara Advani starrer Good News will hit the screens on 27th December 2019. The movie will bring back Akshay and Kareena on the big screen after a gap of four years. The two were last seen together in 2015 release Gabbar Is Back in which Bebo had a cameo.
