Though the month of October kicked off the festive season, it didn't really translate into money for Bollywood. Box office failed to sizzle despite big-ticket releases such as Akshay Kumar’s Boss
and Ranbir Kapoor’s Besharam.
However, film industry’s luck turned with Diwali release Krrish 3, which is likely to enter the exclusive Rs 200 crore club
. With an eclectic mix of movies releasing this month, there is more in store for the film lovers.Satya 2
This film is helmed by Ram Gopal Varma, who has made some of the best underworld movies like Satya, D and Company in the past. However, with a spate of flops recently, the filmmaker is in desperate need of a hit.Cast:
Puneet Singh Ratn, Anaika SotiDirector's take
: "Thousands come to Mumbai from all over the country, some become businessmen, some professionals, some artistes and some become criminals. If Satya was the story of a man who got off a train in 1998, Satya 2 is the story of a man who gets off a train in 2013.”Release date:

, a music aficionado, has also composed the music for the film.Cast:
