Preview: Qarib Qarib Singlle and Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana will release this week and will fight it out at the box office, both films are small budgeted somewhat unconventional romance with Irrfan Khan and Rajkumar Rao in the lead respectively partnering new female faces for Hindi cinema at least.
Qarib Qarib Singlle
Directed by Tanuja Chandra who is back after almost 15 years to direct a proper known movie, because her last Silvat (2015) is as unknown as it can be.
Tanuja whose is the sibling of Anupama Chopra which automatically makes her the sister-in-law of the movie mogul Viddhu Vinod Chopra was a happening and fast emerging name in the late 1990s and early 2000s with
DIL TO PAGAL HAI (Writer, 1997)
DUSHMAN (Director, 1998)
SANGARSH (Director, 1999)
SUR: THE MELODY OF LIFE (Director, 2002)
But as they say, you are as good as your hits, and when most tanked she was the one who got all the flak and thus vanished into oblivion because of both professional and personal reasons.
Cast: Starring the man of all seasons and box office earner, in addition, IRRFAN KHAN and PARVATHY the Malayalam star in the lead, so performances should be a treat.
SHOULD YOU WATCH IT? Yes of course since this ROMANTIC COMEDY looks promising and songs by ANU MALIK and ROCHAK KOHLI are in sync also IRFAAN doesn’t sign a movie unless it’s got both substance and entertainment and hopefully and most importantly the director gets lucky in her comeback as it’s now or never and it should be something to savour.
Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana
Directed by Ratna Sinha in her first silver screen venture after trying her hands in the idiot box, and whatever is available to be seen in trailers it’s got a different feeling hopefully the same can be said for the complete movie as the same can’t be said of her husband Anubhav Sinha who made Ra.One and very recently Tum Bin 2.
Cast: RAJKUMAR RAO is the KING of performances but same can’t be said about his solo status at the box office as even NEWTON wouldn’t have earned a penny unless OSCARS KA ASHIRWAAD made it earn, many thought it was still on the lower side but much more than his other, goes to show what his solo starrer films achieved. Will everything change is a big question mark as even the director admitted no one wants to invest in RAJKUMAR RAO movies. ARTI KHARBANDA is the female lead and hopefully, their chemistry and director’s guidance makes this a family treat.
SHOULD YOU WATCH IT? Yes, of course, ok most will not but maybe the reduction in the price of tickets will help the people in going more to movies but then food is more important than movies any day.
