The three films, from different genres, intrigued the movie buffs who, in turn, made the month a profitable one for the Hindi film industry.

The Lion King: July 19
Directed by Jon Favreau, The Lion King is set in a jungle ruled by Mufasa. One day the future king Simba is born who idolises his father Mufasa. According to the official synopsis of the Disney film, “Scar, Mufasa’s brother and former heir to the throne has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.” The Lion King is releasing in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Arjun Patiala: July 26
Kriti Sanon, Diljit Dosanjh and Varun Sharma are all set to entertain cinephiles with their comedy-drama Arjun Patiala. The film, directed by Rohit Jugraj, has Sanon in the role of a crime reporter and Dosanjh and Sharma are seen as policemen. The quirky trailer of the film described it as a low budget film but packed with entertainment quotient. Arjun Patiala will face a box office clash with Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao’s Judgementall Hai Kya.
Judgementall Hai Kya: July 26
After being mired in controversies over its title and release date, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao’s dark comedy Judgementall Hai Kya (earlier titled Mental Hai Kya) will be out in theaters on July 26.

Judgementall Hai Kya has been written by Kanika Dhillon and is helmed by National award-winning director Prakash Kovelamudi, who has directed south Indian films like Anaganaga O Dheerudu and Size Zero. This is Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut’s second collaboration after 2013 hit drama Queen.
