Preview: Hate Story 4 and 3 Storeys to release this week.
A cluster of releases ranging from Hate Story 4 to 3 Storeys to Tomb Raider reboot, all diverse and different in every aspect and phrases. What will work only time will tell but what will go against that we can almost guess? But what’s surprising so many each week showing confidence in their products when they know MARCH is the time audience is preoccupied and mostly nothing works
Yes, she is back after almost 15 years (How time flies) LARA CROFT: The Cradle of life (2003) and LARA CROFT: The Tomb Raider.
DIRECTED BY ROAR UTHAUG.
CV – The Wave (2015), Escape (2012), Cold Prey (2006).
Point to be noted – They may not ring a bell as all are Norwegian movies as the director is from that part of world cinema.
Running Time – 1 hour and 58 minutes
CAST – ALICIA VIKANDER is playing LARA.
CV – The Man From Uncle (2015), The Danish Girl (2015), Ex Machina (2014).
IMDb- 7.8/10 .
Looks that’s it’s generated quite an interest.
Should You Watch It? Actually ANGELINA thy charisma is hard to replace though nothing is irreplaceable, So depends on what critics and word of mouth have to say.
DIRECTED BY ROB COHEN a veteran who knows his art is behind this Thriller.
CV – Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008), Dragon Heart (1996), Stealth (2005), The Running Man (1987).
Running Time – 1 hour 52 minutes.
IMDb – 4.6/10
Doesn’t help it either.
Will you watch it? If Santa is distributing tickets for free, but then it’s not Christmas time.
HATE STORY 4
DIRECTED BY VISHAL PANDYA
He has penned it too along with the screenplay. So, he will be responsible for everything good or bad only time will tell.
CV – HATE STORY 3 which was a surprise hit. WAJAH TUM HO which sank without a trace.
Cast – Ok cast doesn’t matter in such franchises. It’s all about the right balance of love, lust, crime, and twist which if achieved then any Tom Dick & Harry will have a hit.
Will you watch it? For the first time, this franchise may be staring at disaster, not that it’s something worth a wait but then it’s always had a clean slate in terms of at least recovery.
DIRECTED BY ALEYA SEN a debutant who has also written it. She has been at the helm of ad films.
Will you watch it? TAPSEE PANNU and SAQUIB SALEEM may not be your big stars but they are more than watchable and if the director is able to handle everything with flair then the audience will definitely care and not make the makers despair.
DIRECTED BY ARJUN MUKERJEE, another debutant showcasing his cinematic talent.
CAST – SHARMAN JOSHI, RICHA CHADHA, PULKIT SAMRAT, RENUKA SHAHNE to name a few.
RUNNING TIME – 1 HOUR and 40 MINUTES, should make it a breezy family stuff and that’s what the makers want us to trust. Hope that doesn’t go bust.
