Here is your handy guide to this month’s big releases so start planning your Friday sick leaves accordingly.

  1. “102 Not Out”

Releasing on: May 4

Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Jimit Trivedi

Based on a Gujarati language play, this film unites two of Bollywood’s legends on the big screen after 26 long years. It’s a humorous yet emotional take on a father-son relationship. The catch? Bachchan plays 102-year-old Dattatraya, Kapoor plays his 72-year-old son Babulal. Clearly, this is a unique plot and based on the talent, “102 Not Out” might just pull it off.

2. “Omerta”

Releasing on: May 4

Starring: Rajkumar Rao, Rajesh Tailang, Rupinder Nagra, Keval Arora

In this movie, which was originally set for an April 20 release, Rao returns with another gritty  after his previous credits like “Newton” and “Trapped.” Based on the life of British-Pakistani terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Shaikh, the film explores the 1994 kidnappings of foreign tourists in New Delhi, India, by Kashmiri terrorists, for which Omar was arrested. He was also involved in plotting the murder of The Wall Street Journalreporter Daniel Pearl in 2002. “Omerta” traces his life after he became a terrorist but doesn’t focus on his backstory.

3. “Raazi”

Releasing on: May 11

Starring: Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Rajit Kapur, Shishit Sharma

Set in the early 70’s, this period drama is adapted from Harinder Sikka’s novel “Calling Sehmat.” Bhatt plays the titular character of Sehmat, a young Indian spy married to a Pakistani soldier. She is obviously in a precarious situation, pretending to be in love with her husband while secretly helping her country during the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971. If Bhatt’s strong characters in movies like “Highway,” “Udta Punjab,” and “Dear Zindagi” are any indication, “Raazi” is only the cherry on the cake.

4. “Hope Aur Hum”

Releasing on: May 11

Starring: Naseerudin Shah, Sonali Kulkarni, Aamir Bashir

With a stellar cast, Sudip Bandhopadhyay’s film promises to be a quirky family comedy. Shah’s Nagesh Srivastava is the head of his family, always advising them that everything happens when it is destined to happen. Each of his family members are going through their own little journey, like his son Neeraj, who falls in love with the mysterious woman who finds his lost phone, or his grandson who is fearful of something he saw in a dumpster.

5. “Deadpool 2”

Releasing on: May 18

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beetz, Josh Brolin, Karan Soni

After the success of 2016’s “Deadpool,” the sequel was the only logical step. Reynold’s plays Wade Wilson aka Deadpool, a wacky and strong superhero. In the first film, Indian-American actor Soni played Dopinder, Deadpool’s designated taxi driver. He had a brief role but left quite the impact, which is why his role is expanded in the sequel. Dopinder will be part of X-Force, a team Deadpool creates to protect a young mutant from the villainous, time-traveling Cable.

6. “Bhavesh Joshi Superhero”

Releasing on: May 25

Starring: Harshvardhan Kapoor, Radhika Apte, Nishikant Kamat

“Deadpool” ain’t the only superhero coming our way this month. Kapoor’s Bhavesh Joshi plays a supersuit-wearing vigilante in this Vikramaditya Motwane directed movie. Bollywood’s venture in this genre hasn’t been too promising with movies like “Krrish 3” and “A Flying Jatt.” However, based on this short teaser, “Bhavesh Joshi” looks darker, more intriguing, and will hopefully pave way for powerful action movies in Indian cinema.

7. “Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran”

Releasing on: May 25

Starring: John Abraham, Diana Penty, Boman Irani

Director Abhishek Sharma’s latest film revolves around the Indian Army’s nuclear test explosions in Pokhran, Rajasthan, in 1998. In an interview with Indian news channel NDTV, Abraham called it “an ode to the Army and scientists, who although ordinary people, truly accomplished extraordinary feats in the face of adversity to ensure that India finds its due place on the world nuclear map.” This film has been caught up in controversy because of one of its producers, KriArj Entertainment, after they were unable to pay the money for it. However, after much delay, “Parmanu” will hopefully release at the end of the month.
