Shivaji-The boss -Rs. 80 Crores
Cast : Super Star
: S. Shankar
M. Saravanan/M.S. Guhan
Loaded with Rajni-style antics such
as flicking coins, acrobatically bouncing chewing gum around, and
swapping guns from hand to hand whilst flying through the air, the film
has a lot to offer for Rajni fans, and also has the usual social
development message featuring Rajni as the Messiah. The song
picturizations are good and very entertaining. But the film is very long
overall flawed by a weak plot, too many repetitive action sequences,
and a extremely poor editing.
Love Story 2050 - 80 Crores
Cast : Priyanka Chopra ,Harman Baweja ,Boman
Irani ,Archana Puran Singh ,Josh Katz
: Harry Baweja
Music : Anu
Initially, when the film was
announced in 2004, Kareena Kapoor had signed on to play Priyanka’s role
in the film, for which she was reportedly paid Rs. 30 million. Kapoor
later opted out in 2006 saying she had some date problems and was
replaced by Chopra. Love Story is Bollywood’s first futuristic film and
1200 special effect shots, the most ever in India.
Lead actress, Priyanka Chopra will
be seen playing a double role in the film.Along with lead actors, Harman
and Priyanka, a robot will also be seen playing a major role in the
film, along with that, we also get to see a teddy bear which appears to
be more than a toy.
Rs. 65 crores
Cast : Amir Khan,Asin,Jiah Khan
: A.R. Murugadoss
Aamir Khan’s remake of the smash
South Indian movie made huge profits for him, raking in about 180 crores
in revenue. The movie itself is a really bad remake of the awesomely
made Memento. The movie cost about 65 crores, which will surely include
the nationwide PR programme, which also involved some bizarre concepts
like giving the signature Ghajini haircut outside theaters and the war
of words between SRK and Aamir.
Jodhaa Akbar - RS. 60 Crores (Rs
Cast : Hrithik Roshan ,Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
: Ashutosh Gowariker’s
Ashutosh Gowariker’s gargantuan epic

Hindu wife Jodhaa bai . Elaborate sets, huge war scenes and Hrithik
Roshan and Aishwarya Rai as stars push the budget upwards.
Kambakht Ishq – Rs.60 crores (Rs

Shivdasani,Amrita Arora ,Dara Singh
Sajid Nadiadwala , Prachi Thadani
Mind-numbing storyline (or the lack
of it), below the belt jokes, Hollywood stars with no roles to play but
eye candy, and vulgar show of skin characterized this movie. But the
shooting was in exotic locales and the start studded cast and the hugely
extensive (and forceful) publicity campaign ensured that the budget
touched 60 crores
