This Friday, the 15th of March, brings to us a fascinating bouquet of movies by three ace directors. And the interesting part is that all the three movies have an entirely different feel to them.
Ritesh Batra after his critically acclaimed and award winning ‘Lunchbox’ brings to us ‘Photograph’ starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra.
After the stupendously loveable ‘Lunchbox’, expectations are high from his next directorial venture. As an icing on the cake , we have audience’s favourite Nawazuddin.
Lets hope the film wows us as much as the earlier one did.
The second release of the week is ‘Milan Talkies’ directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia.
After ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’ and ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ , Dhulia has a steady and niche fan following which I am sure is excited about his upcoming film in spite of the insipid Saheb Biwi Returns which we saw last from the director.
The film is a romantic drama in a small town set up and has an interesting cast of Ali Faizal, Ashutosh Rana, Sikander Kher and new comer Shraddha Srinath.
The trailer looks great and the rustic music of Bakaiti seems to strike the right chord.
With the given setup, dialect, and music the movie seems like a good masala entertainer. Expecting the same spark from Dhulia like his initial movies, we really look forward to this one.
Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra, who gave us the likes of ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Delhi 6’ brings to us the much-awaited ‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’.
The movie boasts of music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and lyrics by Gulzar. It stars Atul Kulkarni and Anjali Patil (last seen in Mirzya and Newton in small but noticeable roles). The story revolves around a small boy reaching out to the prime minister seeking justice for his mother.
What’s noticeable is that none of the three movies have been widely publicised like the usual mass entertainers.They seem to be relying on the substance and would hope to gain from word of mouth and positive reception by the audience.
