2021 has been a not-so-brilliant year for Bollywood. While the audience saw some big releases like Shershaah, Sooryavanshi and Atrangi Re, there were quite a few deferrals too. Jersey got postponed only to get a new release date just a few days before its release owing to the COVID scare. In all, this bittersweet year was not as fruitful for Bollywood as one would have expected. But with the New Year, there are new hopes and the situation looks a little more vibrant for both fans and their favourite stars, if the experts’ words of Omicron not being a deadly variant are to be believed.
Here are five movies that are most promising for 2022 and are also the most anticipated ones:
Releasing on: January 7, 2022
RRR is a Telugu historic heist flick directed by S. S. Rajamouli and produced by DVV Entertainments’ D. V. V. Danayya. N. T. Rama Rao Jr., Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, and Olivia Morris appear in the film, which also features Samuthirakani, Alison Doody, Ray Stevenson, and Shriya Saran. Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem, two Indian rebels, are fictionalised in this larger-than-life story (Rama Rao). The picture, which is based in 1920, is promised to be a visual delight as well as rollicking entertainment.
