Which films should have a sequel from the hits of 2008? From Dostana to Race many films are in neck to neck competition as audience favorites...

We want once more...


Films like "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na", "Rock On", "Dostana" were real cult films based on friendship, love and bonding. Not only they were hit as a film but also musically scored high on the music charts for long. A one time watch to these films was not enough and there were many who re-visited the theaters just to have more of it. After all "Ye dil maange more". However, it proved that such films are very well-accepted especially among the youth who always hunt for something that they can relate to best.



No doubt we will be having more of it from "Bollywood" in fact one of its kind is being produced by King Khan himself. So why just new films and not a sequel to existing ones. Just imagine once again rats and meow, rock band and some more humour with confused relationships all set in a new setting. Would it not be great delight, once again to have all of them on-screen together?



Filled with fun, whacky jokes and situations were movies like "Singh is Kinng" and "Golmaal Returns". These movies thrilled the audiences at the edge of their seats. What more is needed after a boring week of all work? A complete entertainment package and that was delivered by these movies. However, director Rohit Shetty understood the need of the audiences and without wasting any time he announced a sequel to Golmaal Returns. If we can have Golmaal returning back so why not "Return of Singh is Kinng"?


Hope director Anees Bazmee is listening....


How can one forget that crow from the movie "Phoonk" and that chalky face ghost in "1920"? Both the movies were good attempts to rejuvenate the aura of "bhoot" and "black magic" terror. The sequel to "Phoonk" is in talks and we sure hope this time they replace the crow with a black cat so that we can have "meow" instead of that "caw caw". Talking about 1920 if we there is a sequel to this film then this time it maybe the actor's turn to get in a ghost get-up and fly all-over the screen. Will these projects turn up or not is still a question but for now we do have "Raaz-2" on the list.




After cult, comedy and horror now its time for some action. Till now "Dhoom and Dhoom-2" were regarded as best action movie but now its "Ghajini". Soaked in romance and action the film is known to be one of its kinds in "Bollywood".Coming up next in this list is the movie "Race". It was more of a suspense thriller but had some mind-blowing action sequences too. So how about carrying it forward for some more action ride.





Last but not the least "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi" a light hearted romantic film that was appreciated by all. The film was expected to repeat the history of "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge" but in every comparison it was considered less than it. Looking at the situation it feels like Yash Raj should have a sequel for "DDLJ" first and hopefully RNBDJ next.



Now that's all the films we would love to see sequels of but unfortunately we heard more about duds like Drona for which the director and actors are all set to make sequels regardless of the bombing of the first film. Now that's a pity isn't it? Audiences which movie would you like to see a sequel of the most?
