February was quite a weak month as far as films were concerned. With an exception of Jolly LLB 2 and The Lego Batman, the month did not see any particularly good movies. But there’s always more movies to come if we keep looking ahead. And that’s what we will do as we watch out for the most entertaining movies to expect in the month of March. Here’s Royale’s recommendation for the movies hitting the theatres in the coming month!
1. Logan – 3rd March
Prepare yourself for yet another R-rated comic-book movie after Deadpool. But where Deadpool was an expletive-laden comedy film with over-the-top violence, the latest (and probably the last) Wolverine movie is touted to be a pure drama with extreme violence and hefty emotional weight. Logan, coming out on 3rd March, has Hugh Jackman bidding adieu to his most iconic role. One which he played a record nine times in different movies. The trailers for Logan garnered the right amount of interest, and initial screenings have reviewers hailing it as the best comic book movie after The Dark Knight. Now that’s some serious praise. All aboard the hype train?
2. Badrinath Ki Dulhania – 10th March
Shashank Kaitan’s Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya was a sweet little film that perfectly balanced the old with the new by bringing DDLJ-like charm and putting a fresh spin on it. Never once did it feel derivative or clichéd. Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan delivered the sparks, and the much-missed Ashutosh Rana was beautifully understated. But can Dharma Productions and Shashank repeat the same? Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, the sequel to the first film, will be out on 10th March. Initial promos clearly show that the lead stars are now playing different characters and the story is not really a direct sequel.
3. Beauty and the Beast – 17th March
The famous French fairy tale has been adapted yet again for the big screen; but this time, it’s a live action movie. Beauty and the Beast has seen many adaptations in the past, most of which were plays and animated movies.
It will be refreshing to see a live-action adaptation where Beauty will be played by the luminous teen heartthrob Emma Watson. The role seems tailor-made for her, and she looks stunning in the trailers. Book your tickets using BookMyShow offers and watch it on the big screen on the 17th March.
4. Phillauri – 24th March
We can always expect Anushka Sharma to choose unconventional films. After her amazing turn in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Anushka Sharma is back in ‘Phillauri’, a romantic comedy with a twist.
Anushka Sharma plays a friendly spirit who bothers a young man (Suraj Sharma). This young man, following the advice of his well-wishers, marries a tree (for Manglik dosha) to keep his love life away from harm. Looks like quite a quirky plot and if executed well, could prove successful.
5. Anarkali of Aarrah – 24th March
Anarkali of Arrah is a story set in the town of Arrah in Bihar. The leading lady is the ever-effervescent Swara Bhaskar, who plays the titular Anarkali, an erotic singer with a penchant for double-meaning songs. Based on the first look, the film looks like an earthy, textured film filled with the flavours of Bihar. Watch it for Swara Bhaskar, who regularly steals scenes from leading ladies while always playing supporting roles. Let’s see how she does on her own on the 24th of March.
So, there we have it. Be ready to book your tickets because these five films are sure to set the box office on fire!
