    Baaghi: The first film starring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor worked wonders at the box-office in 2016 minting Rs 38.58 crore in the opening weekend. To its advantage, the Sabbir Khan directorial had a solo release window with a total 2750 screens nationwide. The recently released sequel Baaghi 2, which saw Tiger pair-up with Disha Patani, was hailed in the trade circuit as the best opening of 2018 with morning occupancy of around 45-50% with a 3400 screen release. Tiger, who plays an armyman in the film has undertaken some life-threatening and complicated stunts, true to his action-hero image

    Rock On 2: Directed by Shujaat Saudagar, stars Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Shashank Arora and Prachi Desai.

While Rock On!! is about four guys who created Magik, Rock On 2 is about how the journey of 'Magik' continues as young musicians join the band

    Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai: The film directed by Milan Luthria was much-appreciated and had Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi playing characters allegedly inspired by Haji Mastan and Dawood Ibrahim respectively. In the sequel, titled Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara, Akshay Kumar takes over the character portrayed by Emraan in the original

    Aashiqui: In a rare instance, the sequel of this film released 23 years after the original. The 1990 film, starring newcomers Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal, worked solely on an excellent music score. The sequel, Aashiqui 2, had equally good music, as a result of which the Aditya Roy Kapur-Shraddha Kapoor starrer became a surprise hit

    Murder: The surprise hit of 2004 had Mallika Sherawat at her erotic best, which made the film work in spite of a weak story line. The subsequent films in the franchise Murder 2 and Murder 3 (2013) had poorer script, but managed to do reasonably well at the box-office courtesy its titillating content

    Golmaal: Rohit Shetty's comic caper released in 2006. A multi-starrer no-brainer, it did exceedingly well at the box office, and has been followed by part 2 and 3, which have also turned out to be successful working on the same masala formula

    Jism: The erotic thriller directed by Amit Saxena had Bipasha Basu in her sexiest avatar till date while John Abraham's hot hunk status also worked in the film's favour. The sequel released last year was equally atrocious, with the wooden Sunny Leone unable to save the film in spite of excessive skin show

    Munna Bhai MBBS: When Rajkumar Hirani's debut film released in 2003, it took the nation by storm. Sanjay Dutt, playing the adorable goon won the hearts of the audiences. The humour in the film was good-natured and the message the film was trying to give across shone through. The sequel, Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), gave India a new anthem Gandhigiri

    Don: When the remake of the 1978 blockbuster hit the screens in 2006, the film was panned by critics since the movie had nothing novel to offer, and even the twisted climax was not appreciated. However, Shah Rukh Khan's star power made the film a success. A sequel to the film, which was equally bad, released in 2011, but this movie was an ever bigger hit!

    Kya Kool Hain Hum: There haven't been many good sex comedies in Bollywood, but this Sangeet Sivan film released in 2005 was definitely among them. With hilarious adult jokes and surprisingly effortless performances by Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh, the film was a box office success. Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum and Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3, could not repeat the magic of the original

    Koi Mil Gaya: The 2003 sci-fi adventure resurrected Hrithik Roshan's career, which was going through a prolonged lean spell. As a mentally subnormal Rohit, Hrithik pitched in his career best performance. The sequel, Krrish (2006), saw Hrithik playing a superhero. In spite of a flawed script, the film was a massive success. The much-hyped next part, Krrish 3, has also released

    Dabangg: Among the highly successful movies in Salman Khan's repertoire of action films, Dabangg (2010) had the superstar playing a corrupt cop, who recovers money from robbers and keeps them for himself. The actor reprised his role in Dabangg 2 (2012), and it was also a superhit although the movie wasn't as memorable

    Race: Abbas-Mustan's 2008 suspense thriller was a big hit owing to a mix of action, comedy and thrills. Performances from all actors were top notch. As it so often happens, the sequel paled in comparison, but the film was a big grosser at the BO courtesy a massive star cast and excellent promotions. A third instalment featuring Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem is coming soon

    Raaz: Vikram Bhatt's 2002 horror flick saw surprisingly mature performances by Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea, one of the reasons the film became a blockbuster. RaazThe Mystery Continue - s (2009), which dealt with myths and superstitions, also managed to garner good response at the box office. Raaz 3 had black magic as the theme, and also worked its magic and set the cash registers ringing

    Hera Pheri: Priyadarshan's laugh-a-minute riot had three diametrically opposite characters, each equally funny, joining forces. Of course, Paresh Rawal was the best of the lot with his bumbling act, playing the most significant part in making the 2000 film legendary. Phir Hera Pheri (2006) brought back the stars from the original. And in spite of being a far inferior product, the audiences still lapped up the buffoonery

    Dhoom: One of the most successful action thriller franchises in Bollywood, the first part Dhoom (2004) was a massive success with John Abraham stealing the show. Dhoom 2 was low on acting skills, but survived and did well at the box office. 'Dhoom 3' saw Aamir Khan in a negative role

    Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster: The 2011 romantic thriller drama, which told the story of a royal family of UP, had a taut script, and excellent performances from Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill and Randeep Hooda, and some steamy scenes as well. The film did well enough to spawn a sequel. Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, which released earlier, and had Irrfan Khan and Soha Ali Khan as additions to the cast, was also critically acclaimed. Sanjay Dutt will be seen in the third instalment

    Shootout At Lokhandwala: Apoorva Lakhia's 2007 action thriller based on the real-life Lokhandwala shootout became a hit courtesy the high-voltage action sequences coupled with a mega star cast. The prequel, Shoootout at Wadala (2013), which deals with the shooting of gangster Manya Surve, also became a hit by repeating the same formula

    Tanu Weds Manu: A Bollywood film with R. Madhavan in the lead was a big risk considering his past record. But Anand L. Rai showed faith in the South superstar, and pulled off a surprise winner. Madhavan's portrayal of a simple NRI doctor was top notch. The film's sequel, 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns', was a box office hit too

    Ishqiya: The 2010 black comedy thriller directed by Abhishek Chaubey and starring Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah performed better than expected. The rustic settings and offbeat portrayals by the lead cast worked in the movie's favour. The film had its sequel Dedh Ishqiya, starring Madhuri Dixit

    Welcome: Welcome (2007) features an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Katrina Kaif, Paresh Rawal, Mallika Sherawat and Feroz Khan in last film appearance. The film's sequel, Welcome Back, has John Abraham and Shruti Haasan in the lead, while Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Paresh Rawal reprise their roles from the prequel. The sequel, like its original, is totally unabashed and unpretentious about its silliness and randomness. It is a blazing example of the 'leave your brains at home' variety. Pic/Santa Banta

    Pyaar Ka Punchnama: The bad thing about 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2' is that it is misogynistic and chauvinistic. And the best part? It doesn't pretend to be anything other than that. Like 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' (2011), the sequel, too, looks at women as nothing but a bunch of exploitative and irritating objects out to make life hell for men. What is disappointing is that the film keeps harping on just what the original did and doesn't carry the sequel to another level as one hoped. Some dialogues and scenes are smart, some are uproariously funny and quite a few are not. Pic/Santa Banta

    Ghayal Once Again: This action drama is a sequel to Sunny Deol's 1990 super hit film 'Ghayal'. The USP of the film is the actor's comeback plus the fact that the story takes off from where the original ended. The 58-year-old actor is not only starring in the project but is also directing it. The film was set to hit the big screens along with Salman Khan starrer 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo', but the clash was averted with the release date being pushed. 'Ghayal Once Again' also stars Soha Ali Khan, Om Puri, Narendra Jha and newcomers Shivam Patil, Diana Khan, Rishabh Arora and Aanchal Munjal. (Pic/YouTube and Santa Banta)

    Tere Bin Laden: Six years ago, Tere Bin Laden was much appreciated because of its innovative script and delightful humour. The sequel comes with a tagline attached to the original title - Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive. Cleverly scripted to fit the terrorist's murder, this time, the Bin Laden lookalike (Pradhuman Singh) is a leader of a militant outfit and wanted by the US. Quite a few actors from the original are included in the sequel and while they have full fledged roles, Ali Zafar has a cameo. Manish Paul is a new addition, who interestingly plays Abhishek Sharma, the director. Sikandar Kher joins the team, playing a pot bellied producer from Hollywood. The satire is genuinely fun for a while and then it all starts getting repetitive. The script and dialogues are largely innovative and unpredictable, and more often than not keep you chuckling.

    Aap Kaa Surroor: Music director Himesh Reshammiya made his debut as an actor in Aap Kaa Surroor in 2007. The romance drama also features Hansika Motwani and Mallika Sherawat. Though the film was panned by critics, it turned out to be one of the biggest box office surprises of 2007. The sequel of the film is titled Teraa Surroor and stars Himesh opposite Farah Karimaee. The script of Teraa Surroor holds a lot of interest but the patchy, amateur execution kills it. Director Shawn Arranha ends up delivering unintentional amusement and Himesh Reshammiya the actor is never a patch on Himesh Reshammiya the musician. Pic/YouTube and Santa Banta
