Jollyji! As you said the movie releases in August 2013 looks impressive. "Satyagraha" release date is being change due to some issue in releasing. The reason why August is having houseful of movies is due to ending of Ramadhan (Ramzan) which starts from 9 July to 9 August 2013. During Ramzan, Muslim tend to avoid movies, as this holy month, devoted to prayers and fasting.

Thanks for voting up and visiting my hubs.

I really enjoyed reading your account of these films. I admit to not being much of a film goer, even American films. Slumdog Millionaire was the only Bollywood film I've seen. But I just read that Netflix carries a lot of Bollywood films, so maybe I'll give it a go and watch some of these when they are out my way. Thanks for working so hard on this. It shows. Voted up and useful.
