We are back once again to let you guys know about the hottest releases this October! The month seems to have some interesting releases, and some not so interesting ones! Without further ado, lets discuss what Bollywood has to offer this month!

Featured Video

Starting the month of with a bang is the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Besharam. The Anurag Kashyap directorial, which released on October 2 also stars the newcomer Pallavi Sharda. The movie is about Babli, played by Kapoor, a charming car mechanic living in an orphanage with a nonfunctional moral compass. He shamelessly steals cars to make money to run the orphanage. However, he sees the errors of his ways when he unknowingly hurts the love of his life Tara (Pallavi Sharda). To make matters worse, the super cop couple Chulbul Chautala (Rishi Kapoor) and Bulbul Chautala (Neetu Singh Kapoor) are on his case! And does Babli escape the law and get the girl?! You'll just have to catch the movie to find out!

Releasing the week after, on October 11, are a slew of movies with a low production value. These include the Javed Jaffrey, Soha Ali Khan and Sharman Joshi starrer comical satire War Chhod Na Yaar. The movie takes a humorous look at the armed forces of two countries engaged in a perpetual war. Also releasing on this day is Dilli Gang, based on the happenings of the December 2012 Delhi gang rape.

The next big movie to watch out for is Akshay Kumar starrer Boss. Releasing on October 16, the movie also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Ronit Bose Roy, and Mithun Chakraborty, amongst others. A remake of Malayalam movie Pokkiri Raja, the movie has already garnered much interest from the audiences, in part due to an amazing soundtrack with chart-toppers such as 'Party all Night' and 'Boss'.

Finally, the last week of the month is all set to feature some interesting prospects. We see the release of Saurabh Varma's Mickey Virus on October 25. The movie marks the debut of popular TV personality and host Manish Paul, last seen as one of the anchors of Color TV's Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa. Opposite Manish is yet another debutant, Elli Avram, a Swedish-Greek actress who is currently participating in Color TV's Big Boss 7. The movie is based on cyber crime, in which Mickey (Manish Paul), a street smart computer
hacker, plans the ultimate con, and that too while helping the Delhi Police solve a hacking case. Touted to be a comic thriller, this one is definitely worth checking out! Also releasing on the same day is another thriller, Vikram Bhatt's Bhaag Johnny. Starring Kunal Khemu, the movie is about a man who is living two lives and has to choose between one or the other and the consequences of his choices.

So there you have it! The month of October starts out strong with high entertainment value, but then dwindles in its entertainment offerings. While there does appear to be a good mix of genres available, this cine-goer is definitely a bit disappointed with the slim picking. What do you guys feel?! And which movies are you looking forward to most?!
