Preview: Kapil Sharma’s Firangi will clash with Sunny Leone Starrer Tera Intezaar this week.
This week two Hindi films are relasing, Kapil Sharma’s Firangi and Arbaaz Khan, Sunny Leone starrer Tera Intezaar along with a Hollywood film Wonder. Let’s find which is the best bet for the weekend.
Directed by Rajiev Dhingra who is a well known one in Punjabi movies for his highly acclaimed LOVE PUNJAB (2016) which went on to win the Filmfare award at its regional show, when they were held. The strength of Rajiev lies in keeping it simple and subtle and rarely goes overboard if his past is any indication including Jimmy Shergil starrer ANGREZ (2015). Even his latest presentation FIRANGI, If just going by the trailers he is not deviating from his strengths.
CAST – ISHITA DUTTA who was last seen in DRISHYAM (2015) where she played the hero’s daughter and impressed all, is in the female lead.
MONICA GILL a highly promising and expected to make it even in Hindi movies is also playing an important role. For those who have seen Punjabi movie AMBARSARIYA (2016) which had DALJIT DOSANJ know what we are talking.
EDWARD SONNENBLICK from the land of Trump who is more Indian than American and can be seen in the web series BOSE: DEAD/ALIVE as ATANLEY, also in NEERJA (2016) he portrayed captain Jack Snipes and even on small screen he is making his presence felt in the highly interesting INDIPEDIA on Epic channel where you experience our beautiful country through eyes of a FIRANGI. In an event he had said how he just couldn’t and stop himself from visiting INDIA after watching Ashutosh Gowariker’s LAGAAN (2001), prime example of magic of cinema which crosses all boundaries and breaks all barriers.
Now most importantly the man behind this project KAPIL SHARMA has tasted success be it his first at LAUGHTER CHALLENGE and subsequently COMEDY CIRCUS and finally with the legendary KAPIL SHARMA SHOW. No doubt he is a pioneer in stand up and has experienced popularity which many in any field rarely go through.
Will his 2nd silver screen project be as successful as his KIS KIS KO PYAAR KAROON jisko everybody gave lots of pyaar but lots has happened like the TWITTER war where though he at least had the guts unlike most who keep their mouths shut to question the system even if it was in a drunk state, or the self destruction of relations through his in the air actions that time too bottle took over brains hope Lesson learnt? Making things slightly different as nothing is sustainable and popularity is prime in that list but anything can happen if something clicks.
Directed by Debutant RAJEEV WALIA is a suspense thriller and hopefully it ticks all the rights which make it even a semi hit. We at GD never want anyone to fail so best of luck to the makers.
CAST of SUNNY LEONE, GAUHAR KHAN and ARBAAZ KHAN along with ARYA BABBAR will they be able to raise the temperatures this winter, well only time will tell.
Directed by STEPHEN CHBOSKY who has co written and if solely based on his previous work of penning BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (2017) is any indication it’s going to be great adaptation of the New york best selling book by the same name, but does it replicate into an engaging screenplay and most importantly his debut direction does full justice, well if initial reports are to be believed he has delivered on all fronts.
CAST of legendary JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON and JAKE WILL who plays pivot role in this this heart-warming story of a boy with facial issues and his experience in going to elementary school.
Most of the world is a super hero junkie so finding an audience for such stuff is difficult but certainly it is the best bet this week.
