The year almost halfway through saw a host of Bollywood releases. Films like 'Queen, Ragini MMS 2, Two States' were received well by the audiences while films like 'Gunday, Yaariyan, Gulaab Gang didn't do pretty well. Reports show that out of the total number of releases in the 2014 so far, the number of flops outnumber the number of super-hits. There are a number of films slated to release in the other half of the year.
Here's a list of 9 films that we suspect won't disappoint audiences.
