New Trailers: January 24, 2014

Lots of new trailers have come out in the last few days, but I haven’t yet posted the trailer for Gulaab Gang. It’s now available with English subtitles, so I finally understand the conflict between Madhuri Dixit-Nene’s community organizer character and Juhi Chawla’s politician. I’m looking forward to watching a movie with a good female villain when Gulaab Gang opens on March 7.

The other three recently released trailers are all for movies geared toward bros. None of the trailers have English subtitles, but it doesn’t matter. They’re all movies about bros doing bro stuff. All the flicks are set to release over the course of three weeks, by the end of which I expect my soul to be thoroughly crushed.

First up is O Teri, which looks like the worst of the lot. It’s a partial rip-off of Weekend at Bernie’s, and it features a character whose nickname is “A.I.D.S.” Please, cinema gods, don’t release this in U.S. theaters on March 21!

Dishkiyaoon is set to release the following week on March 28. It features more fighting than the other movies, for whatever that’s worth.

Bro Season comes to a close on April 4 with the release of Main Tera Hero. Varun Dhawan showed a lot of promise in Student of the Year, but I’m concerned by the amount of pelvic thrusting he does in this trailer and by the fact that his dad — David Dhawan — directs the movie.

So, what do we think? Any of these flicks pique your interest?

    Hi -many thanks for these trailers. I think this is a invaluable service that you do for your readers.

    Of the three/ four counting Jai Ho – I won’t see O-Teri, and maybe Dishkiyaoon will have the multiple cigarette warnings like Zila Ghaziabad.

    But Jai-Ho maybe worthwhile (I’ll wait for your review).

    The last one, Main Tera Hero – is one I might decide to see. Just to see Ileana again. Loved her in Barfi.

      I had the same reaction to Dishkiyaoon that you did, Mike! All I could think about was how the screen will be clogged with anti-smoking warnings.
