I am really looking forward to Varun Dhawan in Judwaa 2. This seems like the perfect kind of comedy for him.
Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi seems like a good fit for Rishi Kapoor, but I’m not familiar with the actor playing his son.
Newton, starring Rajkummar Roa, will be the opening night film for the Chicago South Asian Film Festival. I’m not going to be able to attend that screening, but Rajkummar will be staying through the weekend and doing a Q&A for his film Trapped.
Saif Ali Khan is remaking Jon Favreau’s Chef. This is a good fit for him. I’m going to enjoy seeing Saif as a father onscreen.
Here’s a roundup of some of the latest Telugu trailers. I think I’m most looking forward to Chay Akkineini’s newest film.
Rana Daggubati is center in this trailer for what may be a web series. Looks like a cross between Mr. Robot and Scandal:
Meda Meeda Abbayi:
Mahanubhavudu starring Sharwanand and Mehreen Kaur, directed by Maruthi. I like this nerdy persona by Sharwanand, an actor new to me.
Paisa Vasool just looks insane.
Ravi Teja in Raja the Great:
I’m also really psyched for Jr. NTR in Jai Lava Kusa.
YES!!! Is there anyone more perfect to inhabit J. K. Rowling’s magical universe than Eddie Redmayne? He’s always seemed like an actor from another time, so a period film like this is just spot on for him. Super excited to see Colin Farrell as a wizard, too!
