Our Opening Day Prediction

Shoojit Sircar is all set to intrigue the audiences with his upcoming movie ‘OCTOBER’. The film is not a love story but it’s a story about love. The film looks like a surreal love story, it’s unlike Varun Dhawan’s previous films and there is a huge buzz about the film.


Varun Dhawan plays Dan and the debutant Banita Sandhu plays Shiuli, they both are two young Hotel management trainees but suddenly their lives are shaken up after a traumatic event. The two minute and twenty three second trailer is a very intriguing and unusual love story. Director Shoojit Sircar along with Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu takes us on a beautiful journey of love and relationships. The trailer promises that this one is a unique story about love that goes beyond normal love stories. Yet the trailer is still a mystery and the makers have not revealed the actual confl ict of the fi lm. Varun Dhawan shines in the trailer and the debutant Banita Sandhu is all set to show her talent as an actress. After fi lms like VICKY DONOR and PIKU, director Shoojit Sircar and writer Juhi Chaturvedi are once again ready to touch the hearts of audiences with OCTOBER. The fi lm releases on 13th April 2018.


Be it any genre, slice of life drama films are always entertaining to watch. Slice of life is a genre that is more akin to melodrama than drama, bordering on absurd due to the large numbers of dramatic and comedic events in very short spans. In the past one has seen films like ‘Dear Zindagi’, English Vinglish, Queen and many more which has done brilliantly at the box-office and also critically. These films have redefined the mainstream bollywood movies. OCTOBER is also of the same genre but also largely is a love story and the trailer promises that it has all the potential to break all the norms and become a highly successful film.

Star Cast

The film has Varun Dhawan playing in the main lead along with debutant Banita Sandhu. Varun Dhawan’s track record has been phenomenal – right from ‘Badlapur’ to ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ to ‘Judwaa 2’. In the span of few years only, he has become a youth sensation and his fan following has been huge. Moreover, he will be seen in an all-new avatar in this one. So, one looks forward to what he has to offer this time around.

Shoojit Sircar-Juhi Chaturvedi

What does one say about this writer-director combination. They’ve given us films like ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Madras Café’, ‘Piku’, and now they’ve teamed up for ‘October’. One only expects some great cinema from this duo and clearly, one of the major USP’s of ‘October’ is the team of Shoojit Sircar and Juhi Chaturvedi.

Sound Track

The song Thehar Ja sung by Armaan Malik and music given by Abhishek Arora has already reached 20 million views online. The song is penned by Abhiruchi Chand and the song Tab Bhi Tu which is sung by Rahet Fateh Ali Khan and music given by Anupam Roy has also received over 10 million views and is been rising on the chartbuster day by day.
