Speaking of the Amazon channel, I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Heera with one new addition to its Hindi catalog. The 2016 anthology movie Shor Se Shuruaat features short films by rookie directors mentored by veterans like Zoya Akhtar and Imtiaz Ali.
A bunch of movie trailers have been released lately, so I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. First up is What the Fish, which opens on December 13. Due to a lack of star-power and tons of big-time Hollywood fare taking up screens, I’ll be stunned if this opens in the U.S.
I love the full-length trailer for Dhoom 3 — opening December 20 — because it features so much great footage of Chicago.
The comedy Mr. Joe B. Carvalho is set for release on January 3, 2014. That means the filmmakers still have time to edit out the racist scene in which a character sports blackface makeup and an afro wig (1:44 in the video below).
I have my doubts that the star-less college flick Yaariyan will make much of a splash in the U.S. when it releases on January 10.
The romcom Total Siyapaa — starring Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam — looks like it could be pretty cute. It opens on January 31.
Is it just me, or does Gunday seem like an odd movie to release on Valentine’s Day?
