Moreover, there are chances you have already marked your calendars with the release dates of the upcoming movies. And why won’t you? It seems like the best movies were all reserved for April. Coincidence, right? Who cares as long as you get that ‘paisa vasool’ feeling once you step out of the multiplex?
Alight! Too much of preaching there. Now, let’s have a look at what’s up in store for us in the coming month.
1. Kung Fu Panda 3 l Animation l 1st April 2016

You love animated movies, don’t you? Well, even if your answer is ‘no’. You’ve got a good reason to watch this one. Pure motivation – that would be the best way to describe the movie. Kung Fu Panda 3 is set to hit theatres in India on 1st April. But, before you book your tickets, try watching the first 2 instalments of the series.

2. Ki and Ka l Romantic Comedy-Drama l 1st April 2016
Director: R. Balki
OK, let’s talk about Bollywood. Ki and Ka is a romantic comedy-drama starring Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor. The movie highlights a stay-at-home husband who takes care of the house while his wife is the breadwinner. With a storyline like that, this one surely has something different to offer.

3. Fan l Thriller l 15th April 2016
Director: Maneesh Sharma
‘Pehle fan star ke piche baagta tha, ab star fan ke piche bhaagega’. That seems to be one of the lines in the trailer that talks a lot about the movie, releasing on 15th April. Fan is a story of a 20-something man named Gaurav who is a die-hard fan of ‘Aryan Khanna’. Both these roles are played by Shah Rukh Khan. Yes, there’s a double-role in the movie. Excited?
Gaurav calls Aryan his god and is completely passionate about him. However, at one point, things go wrong, and this passion turns into a fatal obsession. What follows next is the real action. Check out this trailer.
4. The Jungle Book l Animation l 8th April 2016
Director: Jon Favreau
‘Jungle Jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai’….this line sounds familiar, isn’t it? Well, Mowgli is back. And of course, you also get to meet Bagheera, Baloo and the rest of the gang. Scheduled to release in India on April 8, the film will be dubbed in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil.
If that’s not compelling enough, check out the trailer today.
5. Baaghi l Action l 29th April 2016

Do we have any Bruce Lee fans in your family? No, this isn’t a movie based on him but is one that will surely remind you of the legendary actor.
