Bollywood has seen a surge in slice-of-life entertainers in recent years. However, this year, many top filmmakers seem bullish about reloading the vintage larger-than-life formula that was a rage in the eighties and the nineties. Although vintage masala never went away, Bollywood lately had been veering towards realism when it came to characters, plot and other entertainment factors. Gangubai Kathiawadi New Poster & Release Date OUT: Alia Bhatt’s Film Directed By Sanjay Leela Bhansali To Hit Theatres On July 30, 2021!



The rise of OTT, where realistic content seems to find a better audience than the big screen and the need for filmmakers to woo the audience back to the theatres seem to be reasons why many in Bollywood is going no-holds-barred with cinematic idiom this year. Some of the big films that revisit vintage masala with new-age swag were scheduled to hit the screens last year but got postponed owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. These mega entertainers are all riding high on star factor, heavy-duty dialogues, high-octane action sequences and, naturally, played-to-gallery melodrama. Bell Bottom: Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor Starrer To Release on May 28.




Here’s a look at the masala in store this year:

Co-starring Disha Patani, the film will have groovy dance numbers, the prototype romance and necessary drama, too. The film is slated to hit the theatres in May.

Bell Bottom

Bell-Bottom boasts of Akshay Kumar, Bollywood’s most bankable superstar right now. The film sees Akshay in a spy avatar and has a big cast comprising Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta. The Bollywoodised espionage thriller is expected to have jaw-dropping stunts. Set in the eighties, the film is scheduled to hit the screen in May.

Gangubai Kathiawadi

The teaser is overflowing with trademakr Sanjay Leela Bhansali colours as well as bombastic dialogues (Sample: “Gangu chaand thi aur chaand hi rahegi” and “izzat se jeeneka, kisi se darne ka nahi”) mouthed by Alia Bhatt, who is seen hurling explicit words and engaging in action, in her role of Gangubai, a brothel owner in Mumbai’s Kamathipura.
