With seven weekends left till New Year's, here are seven epic films for you to watch
The year 2022 ends in seven weekends and we have seven films that could occupy your upcoming Saturdays and Sundays
After two on-and-off years of COVID-19 pushing the release of much-awaited national and international films, the year 2022 saw a flood of theatrical and OTT content. There were far too many shows to binge on Netflix and just as many films to watch on the big screen with a bucket of popcorn.
While some hyped films like Laal Singh Chaddha failed to appease the audiences, movies with a Rs 16 crore budget and low-key promotions like Kantara grossed Rs 360 crore at the box office.
All-in-all, it was a promising year on the film front and as a cinema enthusiast, the author can say that looking at a full house and screaming during the hero's entry in RRR mightily impressed her. The year 2022 brought back the audience and now, they are here to stay!
Looking at the response this year is safe to assume that 2023 will also have similar offerings to make. However, before welcoming the new year, there are some upcoming releases we must watch with a bucket of cheesy popcorn and ice-loaded coke on the side.
