RA.One: the most awaited film of 2011
Hiren Kotwani, Hindustan Times

On Day One of 2011, we surveyed a cross-section of distributors, exhibitors and trade analysts to arrive at the film that according to them deserves the tag of the most eagerly awaited film of the year. Predictably, it is Shah Rukh Khan's RA.One, closely followed by Reema Kagti's suspense thriller with Amir Khan.

The curiosity surrounding RA.One is attributed to Shah Rukh's absence from cinemas after My Name Is Khan in February last year and the fact that it's one of this year's Diwali releases. Analyst Komal Nahta of Film Information explains, "The film has kept Shah Rukh on his toes. It's his most ambitious project so far and one of the most expensive films made in Bollywood. Heavy special effects and constant comparison with Robot have heightened expectations."

Director Kagti's second film has become the talk of the town because Aamir, apart from playing the lead, is also co-producing it. Suniel Wadhwa, a distributor from the Central Province, believes that the actor's entry in the suspense thriller genre has added to the trade's eagerness for the release of the project. "He has a reputation of delivering bigger hits in successive years. So, we're keeping our fingers crossed," he adds.

Power of 2
For the Khans, it's also a year of two films each: RA.One and Don 2 for Shah Rukh, Bodyguard and Ready for Salman, and Dhobi Ghat and Kagti's next for Aamir. Distributor Sanjay Mehta from Delhi believes that the Don sequel will be intriguing to watch because of its location and the fact that Don with Shah Rukh was a remake of the 1970s hit. "I'm also curious about Agneepath and Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara with Hrithik Roshan. They should be worth the wait too."

Saif Ali Khan, apart from Agent Vinod, will start filming Aarakshan; Imran Khan will be seen in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Short Term Shaadi; Akshay Kumar has his hopes pinned on Patiala House, Thank You and Desi Boyz; and Abhishek Bachchan is praying for either Game, Dum Maaro Dum or Players to put an end to his run of flops. Trade pundit Amod Mehra asserts that 2011 is poised to be the 'biggest year' for the industry because "at least Rs 2,000 crore is riding on 'big ticket' films, of which about Rs 400 crore is riding on Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh's films alone."

Sanjay Ghai of Mukta Arts feels that Salman's Ready will be lapped up with an increased hype closer to its release in May. "Salman also has Bodyguard which releases close to Eid. I'm quite hopeful that it could repeat the Dabangg success for him," he adds.   

The business brains in our survey agreed that the best has been saved for the second half of the year, as always. In the meantime, viewers have No One Killed Jessica, Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, 7 Khoon Maaf, Delhi Belly and Players to choose from.

From the perspective of box office collections, Ashish Saxena of Big Cinemas states that after a lot of films crossed the Rs 50 crore mark last year, the expected stakes and returns on RA.One, Don 2, Ready, Bodyguard, Agneepath and Agent Vinod, to name a few, are higher this year : "We hope to do a lot better this year with a fleet of promising films from leading actors."

^ I agree. And I get to see two thriller movies. Actually more than two. Agent Vinod, Amir-bebo-rani's film, and Game Abhi's film. Hopefully they will all be good.

I don't know too much about the other films but Agent Vinod and the Aamir Khan film are the 2 films I'm looking forward to. I'm rather scared to know what Ra.One might have in store.LOL

These film are ot for sure but from 2010 i learn something that everything can change .No one before at the begining talked about Dabangg or put it in the top 5 most awaited film but after the first look we all know what happened .So for me the first look decide which film will be the most awaited or not .
