Two big movies are slated to hit the theatres in the very first month of 2007. And the rest of the year will see the release of some of the most awaited films.

2006 proved to be a landmark year in Bollywood. Sequels, adaptations, remakes and experimental films took the cinematic standard in Bollywood to a new high. And the coming year holds a promise no less. There will be sequels, remakes, big budget productions and low-cost films with big stars.

2007 will open with a thumping note in January with two big films : Guru and Salaam-e-Ishq .

The first quarter of the year will see the release of as many as three films starring Amitabh Bachchan . Two of these will be small budget films: Nishabd and Cheeni Kum . Interestingly, both films will be love stories between an aged man and young lady.

Then in February, the Big B will be seen playing a royal guard in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Eklavya .

In fact, February will bring lots of entertainment for the cine buffs. Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif will again be seen together in Vipul Shah's Namaste London , a story that deals with a very contemporary topic relevant to both Britons and NRIs living in the UK.

And then on Valentine's Day weekend, Suneel Darshan will present his new-formula light-hearted romantic flick Shakalaka Boom Boom which stars a host of actors.

Audience will get to see Aishwarya Rai as a victim of domestic violence in Provoked by Feb end.

2007 will also see some big onscreen jodis. After the grand success of Hum Tum , the romantic jodi of Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee will be seen again in Siddharth Anand's Tara Rum Pum .

On the other hand, two of the most good looking actors of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai, will be seen in Ashutosh Gowarikar's historical love story Jodha Akbar .

John Abraham and Bipasha Basu will also show their onscreen chemistry in 2007 with a film based on sports. Both will be seen playing football in Vivek Agnihotri's Goal .

In fact, the theme of sports will rule 2007. Moving beyond stereotypical concepts, the filmmakers are now trying sports-based subjects. Shah Rukh Khan will play a hockey coach to a girls' team in Shimit Amin's film Chak De India .

John Abraham will again ride a bike, while Abhishek Bachchan will play a car racer in Sunil Shetty's production Raaste , which tells a story of three guys related with sports in their own way. The film will also bring Abhishek and Ash together on the silver screen.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali will introduce two newcomers in his movie Saanvariya . The film is a love story between two people of different religions. The movie will launch Rishi Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor's daughter, Sonam Kapoor .

2007 will also bring some of the much-awaited flicks like RGV's controversial dream projects Ram Gopal Varma Ki Sholay and Sarkar 2 . On a different front, Shah Rukh will play the lead role in his home production Om Shanti Om , to be directed by Farah Khan. Aamir Khan will produce the Hindi remake of Tamil hit Ghajini and will play father to a dyslexic child in another small-budget home production Taare Zameen Pe .

After 'Rang De Basanti', Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra will bring his own story in a film called 'Delhi 6'.

2007 will also mark the comeback of Bollywood's 'Dhak- Dhak' queen Madhuri Dixit in a Yashraj film.

Mani Ratnam's Lajjo , starring Aamir and Kareena Kapoor , is also expected to hit the marquee by the end of the year.

On the whole, 2007 promises a cinematic treat no less than 2006.
