Preview: New Releases June 16th, 2017
Summer Holidays are almost coming to an end, and except BAHUBALI culmination, nothing substantial has created a trend. New
What’s baffling is, makers and especially big stars senselessly trying to utilize single or multiple festival holidays for their releases, when 45 days off in schools and colleges can play a major role, because families are the focal point in order to earn big bucks and may and June are the core.
Look at what RAJAMOULI has achieved (he just mauled the competition) besides the hype it’s also the right time of the release, have never seen so many families getting so excited besides when it’s a picnic.
But nothing succeeds unless the quality is up to the mark and that’s where most of HINDI MOVIES couldn’t reach so their prospects turned bleak. This week has 4 releases and all have Comedy as their core and hopefully, they will not bore.
So let’s look at what choices we have and as per preference, we will dissect.
No. 1 choice
First, it was Hollywood and now even in North regional cinema is taking Bombay (yea we don’t fear Shiv Sena) head on and beating them black and blue and coming up strong.
SUPER SINGH (Punjabi)
Directed by ANURAG SINGH
This NATIONAL AWARD winner is a true Superhero who not only brought Punjabi cinema to the forefront by giving quality but also giving a clue of how to tap the oh so big market (Punjabis are everywhere on planet earth) filmmakers to follow suit. They say it takes two to Tango and here to its been no different as he had a Charismatic DALJIT DOSANJH in person.
Be it JATT and JULIET 1 and 2 or PUNJAB 1984 they have never failed to deliver.
This time with SUPER SINGH they are not only raising the bar with budget, also publicity that has increased the anxiety which will rake in the moolah ultimately only time will tell. Also Starring SONAM BAJWA
No. 2 choice
After Demonetized India it’s like the only thing achieved was filling CHOR’S coffers (didn’t mention Bank did I?), so looting a sinner is no sin right? Hope this movie has the might to tackle every bone as good laughter is hard to come by.
Directed By – Bumpy (who names their Son Bumpy? but then it’s different and sounding, hopefully, it translates into his vision if we have 50 percent, the half battle will be won).
Cast – Both the stars have shown their bright side but also had a Bumpy ride and are badly in need of success and what better than MR BUMPY???? to provide them with a hit.
So BUMPY makes everyone’s Career smooth and not leave everyone GRUMPY is what we all wish.
Both the new releases are proven blockbusters and appreciated by one and all, so to pinpoint who is No. 1 will be like choosing from Universal favorites and that’s not a smart way at all.
Both will do well everywhere, though how they perform in India is like as tough to guess because Animation movies seldom succeed and mostly create a mess for distributors and exhibitors.
