2010 will see a good mix of formulaeic as well as experimental movies. Here are the ones you should watch out for




Guzaarish marks the return of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Saawariya. It stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles. The movie will revolve around the story of a married nurse (Aishwarya Rai) and a paraplaegic, wheelchair-bound patient (Hrithik Roshan) suffering from impairment of the motor and sensory functions of the lower limbs, with whom she falls in love. The first schedule for the film began in July 2009. It has been reported that both Hrithik and Aishwarya will sing a song for the movie together.This will be the first time Hrithik will ever sing for a movie. The film also marks the debut of supermodel Monikangana Dutta. Guzaarish has already drawn comparisons with Who's Life Is It Anyway? (1981), The Sea Inside (2004), The Prestige (2006) and The Painted Veil (2006).




Kites is about an Indian boy's romantic affair with a Latin girl and their predicament as they do not understand each other's languages. Hrithik Roshan plays a Salsa teacher. Kangna Ranaut plays a rich girl and is shown as Hrithik's dance student. The story is set in Las Vegas. This Anurag Basu-directed movie stars also marks the debut of Mexican actress Barbara Mori in Bollywood. Hrithik unveiled the first look of the much-hyped film Kites amid fanfare at the Cannes Film Festival 2009. The movie will be released in April 2010. The distribution rights of Kites have apparently been sold to Reliance Big Pictures for a record Rs 150 crore. The film will release in English and Hindi.
