We are already halfway through 2019 (can you believe it?) and we’ve seen quite a few Bollywood movies this year. Some hits, some misses. (Mostly misses, tbh!)

So here’s a list of 17 upcoming Bollywood films that we are eagerly waiting for! After all, 2019 abhi baaki hai mere dost!

A thriller comedy, Judgementall Hai Kya stars the feisty Kangana Ranaut and one of the finest actors of B-Town, Rajkumar Rao. Produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, in this film, we’ll see Kangna and Rajkumar play two edgy characters who are either plotting against each other or a common third party. Judging by the trailer, we think this film’s going to take us on one hell of a ride!

Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code is about the Anti-Rape Law in India. This movie, a social drama and thriller, directed by Ajay Bahl, will focus on the misuse of section 375.

The last time we saw Parineeti Chopra and Siddharth Malhotra together on screen was in the super flop Hasee toh Phasee. But since we have a soft corner for both these actors, we do have some hopes from their second outing together. Jabariya Jodi is a romantic comedy revolving around the tradition of groom kidnapping which is prevalent in Bihar. The intriguing plot is what’s got us looking forward to this one!

4. Batla House

If you know anything about what happened on September 19, 2008, in the Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi, you’d know why we are looking forward to this one. But in case you have no idea, then this one is certainly a must-watch for you!
