There's so much to watch on OTT this October.

And so much more in theatres!

Joginder Tuteja gives us the theatre guide for October.

It starts with Dono from the house of Barjatyas.

Sooraj Barjatya's son Avnish Barjatya makes his directorial debut with this rom-com that also launches the careers of his lead actors, Sunny Deol's son Rajveer and Poonam Dhillon's daughter Paloma.

Mission Raniganj

You can watch Akshay Kumar on OTT, as his hit film OMG 2 premieres on Netflix in October.

If you want a big screen version of him, he gives us Mission Raniganj.

Akshay's character leads a challenging mission to save miners trapped in a flooded coal mine.

Directed by Rustom Director Tinu Suresh Desai, this will be Parineeti Chopra's first release after marriage.


Thank you For Coming
Release date: October 6

After Veere Di Wedding, Producer Rhea Kapoor goes all out with Thank You For Coming, a film directed by her husband Karan Boolani.

It seems to be uncensored fun, as Bhumi Pednekar leads the show in a sex comedy and says the kind of things no mainstream Bollywood heroine has ever said before.


Dhak Dhak
Release date: October 13

Co-Produced by Taapsee Pannu, Dhak Dhak revolves around four women -- Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza and Sanjana Sanghi -- who come together for an extraordinary journey of emotion and adventure, as they take a bike trip from Delhi to Khardung La.

The film marks Tarun Dudeja's directorial debut.


Ganapath - A Hero Is Born
Release date: October 20

Tiger Shroff returns on the big screen after one-and-a-half years; he was last seen in Heropanti 2. This time, he gets into futuristic mode, as the film is set in 2070.

As Ganapath, he will be seen as a warrior and is accompanied by his Heropanti leading lady Kriti Sanon.

Vikas Bahl of Queen fame directs.


Yaariyaan 2
Release date: October 20

After directing the surprise hit Yaariyaan, Divya Khosla Kumar steps behind the camera to play the leading lady in its sequel.

Accompanied by Meezaan and Yash Dasgupta, this Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru film tells the story of three cousins discovering a new city.


Release date: October 27

Kangana Ranaut plays the first Indian Air Force fighter pilot, who paves the way for more women in a career that was previously considered exclusively for men.

Directed by Sarvesh Mewara, the much-delayed Tejas promises to be deeply inspiring.
