Preview: Beyond The Clouds, Nanu Ki Jaanu and Truth Or Dare release today.
This week three movies all diverse be it NANU KI JAANU in Hindi or BEYOND THE CLOUDS and TRUTH OR DARE in English, but what will work and what not is like not difficult to tell as none is creating the irresistible buzz.
NANU KI JAANU
Running Time – 2 hours 12 Minutes
Directed and Co-Written By – Faraz Haider
CV- Movie: War Chod Na Yaar (2013),
Short Film – Sach Ek Kinnar Katha (2005)
As Actor – Paanwaala character in Oye Lucky!Lucky Oye (2008).
Co WRITERS – Manu Rishi and Myshkin (who wrote the original story)? What’s original?
CAST – Abhay Deol has always chosen something unique and not your run of the mill stuff. He is like one of those, who don’t run behind projects but let them come to him.
Patralekha, Brijendra Kala and Manu Rishi etc
WILL YOU WATCH IT? Very difficult to say as the buzz has not been there except that those who look forward to watching Abhay as he comes rarely may venture in multiplexes somewhere. Maybe his combination with OYE LUCKY co-star Manu Rishi may bring at least some moolah.
CRITIC’S TAKE – It is not good and that’s a negative start because word of mouth is on what such movies rely upon to show them the dawn.
BEYOND THE CLOUDS
Running Time – 2 Hours
Directed and Co-written by – Majid Majidi
CV – Children of Heaven(1997), Baran( 2010), Color of paradise (1999), The Father (1996).
It seems human emotions is the forte of this very well known Iranian filmmaker in terms of world cinema.
CAST – Tannishtha Chatterjee, Ishan Khatter, and Malavika Mohanan.
The leading male Ishan has a great lineage when it comes to acting as he related to Shahid Kapoor and indirectly to legendary PANKAJ KAPOOR. So he is the one to vouch out for.
WILL YOU WATCH IT? When it comes to publicity as the director is here & there everywhere in terms of interviews but will that translate into collections is the big question which would be exciting to look forward to in the coming days.
CRITIC’S TAKE – They are liking this siblings product so initial start on which these movies depend seems positive.
TRUTH OR DARE
DIRECTED BY – Jeff Wadlow
WILL YOU WATCH IT? Truth is no one will dare to watch not because it’s bad that’s a separate point, but because no one knows about it or even wants to no.
