Dabangg 2, Talaash or Khiladi 786: Which film will you watch first?

Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar’s new films will be released back to back over the next month. Which one excites you? Which do you plan to watch first?

Three big films are slated to release in the span of a month.Let’s take a look at the good and bad points of each movie, and help you decide what you should watch!

First up, it’s Aamir Khan‘s much waited Talaash, releasing November 30, 2012.

Strong points:

The actor has not been seen in a commercial film since 3 Idiots, and fans are just dying to catch him on the big screen. Of course, he had a starring role in wifey Kiran Rao’s indie-style Dhobi Ghat – Mumbai Diaries and also an item song in his production Delhi Belly. But we will see Aamir in a masala mass film after two years in Talaash!

Adding to the charm of Talaash are actors at their peak, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor – one of the few female main leads that Aamir has done a second movie with. Both ladies look gorgeous and are experienced enough to add meat to their parts in the film. Aamir, Rani and Kareena – quite a deadly cocktail actually.


The only thing that might go against Talaash is the genre – suspense. Most audience members like mystery, but such films are not ideal for repeat viewing – especially in theatres.

The next is Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi 786, releasing on December 7, 2012.

Strong points:

Akshay is back in his Rowdy masala hero avatar, and he has a mass fan-following for this genre. The film might actually have a good story, decent comedy and action.


Akshay might get repetitive. Also, the film’s heroine, Asin Thottumkal isn’t exactly the darling of Bollywood masses – yet.

And finally, Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2, releasing on December 21, 2012.

Strong points:

This one is the sequel to Salman Khan’s 2010 blockbuster Dabangg. Salman reprises the role of his much-loved character Chulbul Pandey. Sonakshi Sinha made her debut as Chulbul’s ladylove and wife Rajjo in the first film. After starring in a couple of more movies since, her fan-following has doubled and she is much loved for being the classic and sexy Indian beauty. A definite plus for the sequel, although she will be seen as a young mother in Dabangg 2. And adding tadka to the film is Kareena Kapoor in the item number Fevicol se!

The music of Dabangg 2 is also catchy and is sure to be a hit.


The setting is the same and so are the main characters, hence the sequel’s story has to be quite phaadu, otherwise audiences will be bored and reject it outright. Producer Arbaaz Khan, making his directorial debut with this one, has a big responsibility to shoulder.

Considering all the above, which film are you booking your tickets for? If you have any more good/bad points about each film, do let us know!
