6 films I'm excited for in 2013!

Go Goa Gone!
Director: Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.
Producer: Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan
Starring: Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das

So many things about it make me want to watch it - crazy, quirky humor, dialogues, zombies, Saif - our Zombie hunter with his weird hairdo, stand-up comedian Vir Das who is better known after Delhi Bellydirectors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. who gave us Shor in the City...

Within a few hours of its theatrical release, the film is already trending in the Twitterverse. I hope the film lives up to all the noise!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani 
Director: Ayan Mukherji
Producer: Dharma Productions, Ronnie Screwvala, 
Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin

Big names Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar are obviously a huge draw for this film. But a bigger reason why I'm looking forward to this one is Ayan Mukherji, the guy behind Wake up Sid. I hope Mukherji can repeat what he did with WUS - breaking through the stereotypical clutter and giving us a reason to look beyond big banners and names. 

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
Director: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra
Producer: Viacom 18
Starring: Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor

The much awaited Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, a biographical work on the life of Indian athlete Milkha Singh, will hit the theaters in July. The name of the film comes from the last words spoken by his father, to save his life during the Partition riots. Eager to see how Farhan Akhtar will carry off this role, a first of sorts for him.

Shaadi Ke Side Effects
Director: Saket Chaudhary
Producer: Balaji Telefilms, Pritish Nandy Communications
Starring: Farhan Akhtar, Vidya Balan

The sequel to Pyar ke Side Effects is finally set to release towards the end of the year. An unusual pairing like its prequel (Rahul Bose and Mallika Sherawat) with both my fav actors Farhan and Vidya, makes me want to watch this one!

Ram Leela
Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Producer: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Starring: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone

Reportedly based on Shakespeare's classic Romeo & Juliet, this one too brings an unusual but fresh pair. Bhansali will be back 3 years after his last film Guzarishwhich received a tepid response at the box office. Hoping this one does what Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas did for him, a decade (or more?) back!
