Hollywood To Bollywood – After two long and difficult years with the Covid-19 pandemic, this year hopefully things have eased up a bit. With schools, colleges, and offices reopening, people are starting to get back to normal times. Due to the pandemic, like every other industrial sector movie theatres were also facing a lot of troubles, going through losses.
The shooting of several films was delayed, which resulted in pushing the release dates further. The producers even thought that their films would not even get a theatrical release. Now with things easing up, movie theatres have started reopening and ardent filmgoers will now be able to enjoy their favorite films on the big screen, reliving the ultimate cinematic experience.
Here’s a listing of the 10 upcoming movies in March 2022, perfect to watch in your free time.

Looking at him you could see that he has come a long way since his debut. The film also stars seasoned actors like Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, John Turturro, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, and Colin Farrell.
