Indian cinema has reached new heights, with the best films forming a part of planned fictional universes that are extremely unique.
From Cirkus to Vikram, five films that made 2022 the year of cinematic universe
From Cirkus to Vikram, the Indian cinematic universe is exploring the multiverse - the fictional realm. Here are five highly anticipated Bollywood universes.
The film featuring Ranveer Singh will release on December 23 and join Rohit Shetty's comedy series.
Cirkus' unmissable relationship with Golmaal and Deepika's appearance as Meenamma in Chennai Express have intriguing aspects. Golmaal (2006) marked Rohit's entry into the comic genre with Tushar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, and Ajay Devgn.
With the release of "Pathaan," a Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer film, Indian cinema will witness the country's greatest cinematic universe of action-thrillers. The film includes an appearance by Salman Khan as Tiger and Hrithik Roshan as War.
The Bollywood version of horror-comedy indeed seems to be fascinating and worthwhile. Stree (2018), Roohi (2021), Bhediya (2022), and Munja culminate to form the ghost universe of Dinesh Vijan. All the characters will possibly meet each other at the conclusion, and the parts will finally assemble. Speculations are there that Stree 2 and Ayushmann's Vampire will also join the mix.
The fantasy and adventure-driven film is the first instalment of a planned trilogy. The multi-starrer film forms a part of the Astraverse, a cinematic universe. Inspired by Hindu mythology, the film features Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor), who turns out to be an enormous "agni" (fire) weapon and tries to protect the Brahmastra, the mightiest of the astras, from being captured by dark powers with whom he has a shared past.
5. HIT: The Second Case
Adivi Sesh, the protagonist in HIT: The Second Case, is a Telugu sequel to HIT: The First Case, which starred Vishwak Sen. The conclusion of the second movie introduced a new character, Nani, who would play the lead in HIT: The Third Case and would be joined by Adivi Sesh and Vishwak Sen.
Lokesh Kanagaraj's Khaithi against Thalapathy Vijay's 67 projects, as well as Suriya's potent performance as Rolex in Vikram, are enthralling the audiences. Smoothly intertwining Karthi's Khaithi with Kamal Haasan's Vikram with unexpected twists and turns, the director has left everyone awestruck. Lokesh describes his fictional realm as the "Lokesh Cinematic Universe" (LCU).
