  • The Big Diwali Releases

Aamir Khan’s perfection in Secret Superstar, followed by the colourfulness of Rohit Shetty’s laugh riot Golmaal Again and the nail-biting crime-thriller The Snowman – looks like the festival of lights is sure to brighten up the mood of movie lovers this year.

 
 
 
Diwali festivities are truly not complete for a cinephile if it is not complemented with an outing to cinema halls to catch a film with family and friends. No wonder, filmmakers consider this festive season as the best time to release their films. They can happily lay their bets on the box-office collections with a blind eye and even be unbothered about another big-ticket film releasing alongside, as a release on festival day ensures a dhamaka at the box-office. Obviously, this in return is beneficial to us movie buffs, who are eagerly awaiting to devour one film after the other during the festive holiday period. 
 
Like always, this year too there are two big Bollywood films scheduled to release during the Diwali weekend alongside a British crime thriller. 
 
 
 
 
Bringing us our festive dose of entertainment this year is none other than the Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood – Aamir Khan. After the massive success of Dangal, Aamir Khan will be seen once again on the big screen in Secret Superstar, which also features his Dangal daughter – Zaira Wasim. A musical drama, directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Aamir Khan, Secret Superstar with all its dreams and hopes is an ideal film to watch this festive season with your loved ones. 
 
The film is an aspirational coming-of-age drama about a small town teenaged girl (Wasim) who uses the Internet to become a singing sensation. Even Aamir has an important part in the film; the versatile actor will be seen playing a creepy music director named Shakti Kumaarr. “Secret Superstar will become much bigger than Dangal. While both are about the empowerment of the girl child, I feel it [Secret Superstar] is a much bigger film,” stated Aamir.
 
Now when this kind of validation comes from a star like Aamir Khan, one can be assured that this festival release is not only going to prove beneficial to its makers but will also win the hearts of its audiences on the day of its release, .i.e. October 19.
 
 
 
Further enhancing the festivities will be Rohit Shetty’s fourth instalment to his popular Golmaal film franchise – Golmaal Again, which releases on October 20. 
 
Featuring the likes of Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, 
Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu, Shreyas Talpade, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sanjay Mishra, Jonny Lever, and other actors, this star-packed comic drama is sure to add sparkle to your Diwali celebrations with its vibrant colours and fall-out-of-your-chair comedy. 
 
 
 
The film which is scheduled to release a day after Secret Superstar has all the right ingredients of a typical big commercial film, which has been missing from the Bollywood movie calendar until now this year. Director Rohit Shetty, who is not at all concerned about clashing with an Aamir Khan-film said, “Golmaal 4 is going to be bigger and better.” Now what better way to celebrate Diwali than with this crazy ensemble cast which promises to make you laugh out loud. 
 
Releasing alongside Golmaal Again is the British crime thriller – The Snowman, featuring Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, and J. K. Simmons, among others. The film revolves around an elite crime squad’s lead detective (Fassbender), who is investigating the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter. The Snowman definitely packs enough excitement for the 
thrill lovers.
 
Happy Festive Watching!
