After a thoroughly enjoyable week with two great releases, the movie buffs can look forward to a continued bonanza this weekend, with 3 releases lined up once again this Friday, 20th September 2019.
Prasthanam is a multi-starrer political action drama starring a marathon cast of Sanjay Dutt, Jacky Shroff, Manisha Koirala, Ali Faizal, Chunkey Pandey, Satyajit Dubey and Amyra Dastur.
The movie is a remake of a highly successful 2010 Telugu film by the same name, directed by the same director, Deva Katta.
The screenplay is by Deva Katta and dialogues by Farhad Samji whose filmography includes most Rohit Shetty films, many others in comedy genre and more recently ‘Simbaa’ and ‘Baaghi 3’.
It would be interesting to see him delve into a very different story set up this time.
The trailers look very impressive and the drama, action and performances are worth looking forward to.
With all ingredients of a larger than life potboiler and a fine set of actors backing it up, the movie looks all set for a good opening!
THE ZOYA FACTOR
The Zoya Factor is based on a book by same name by Anuja Chauhan and the film is a romantic drama that revolves around a Rajput girl, Zoya who ends up becoming a lucky charm for the Indian Cricket team during the 2011 Cricket World Cup.
It’s directed by Abhishek Sharma who gave us the ‘Tere Bin Laden’ series and more recently ‘Parmanu .
It stars Sonam Kapoor, acclaimed south star Dilquer Salmaan (last seem in ‘Karwaan’ with Irfan), Angad Bedi, Sanjay Kapoor amongst others.
Music by Shankar Ehsan Loy is doing very well on charts.
The trailer seems to promise good all round entertainment with romance, drama, humour and lots of cricket.
PAL PAL DIL KE PAAS
Sunny Deol launches his son Karan Deol in this romantic drama that he has directed himself.
The film has debutante Sahher Bambba along with Karan.
Unfortunately there’s nothing exciting about the launch vehicle of this latest star son. The romantic story doesn’t have any novelty value. Sahher looks pretty and promising but the same cannot be said about the young Deol. Karan seems to look quite stiff with his expressions.
As we remember, Sunny’s earlier directorial ventures (‘Dillagi’ and ‘Ghayal Once Again’) haven’t been too great. It’s really a big question about what charm would this movie be able to throw over the audience.
Considering that there are two other big budget, much more promising looking films competing at the box office , it’s going to very challenging for PPDKP to wade through.
