Our filmy box-office took a big leap with the much anticipated Kaminey and astounding Life Partner raking in moolah. Will the films slated for release this Friday make it up to that mark, and will they be able to woo the audience and make bucks at the box-office? Let’s check it out:
Fast Forward: This musical-action drama film based on the art of dance, certainly the film banks on 6 words- “From the makers of A Wednesday’; despite the not very luring star cast. A youthful approach towards the film with the presence of Vinod Khanna and Mahesh Manjrekar may pull the audience. But much will depend on the word-of-mouth publicity for Fast Forward to survive, considering Kaminey is seeing a belated weekend in major centers like Mumbai and Pune. Shadow: A man, who is blind in real-life, will see in reel-life- this premise has certainly created curiosity among the cine-goers. Naseer Khan- the debutant actor-producer is himself the USP of the film, as iterated in the beginning of the promos itself. Shadow seems to be getting good opening in the beginning and has potential to survive. The film will certainly fare better on single screens as compared to Multiplexes. But yes, word of caution, the film might lose its audience with negative word-of-mouth if it does not cater to the inquisitiveness it has created. It will also be deciding factor for Naseer Khan, whether he is a- long racehorse or one time wonder.
Sikandar: Although based on the most sensitive issue prevailing in the present times, of that of TERRORISM in Kashmir, this film lacks the appropriate promotions to propel it to box-office success. Ayesha Kapoor, the child actor from BLACK is making a comeback as a 14-year-old, in this film she looks much convincing as a school going Kashmiri Girl. This film has a very dim chance to sail across, all thanks to the lack of promotions. R. Madhavan and Sanjay Suri are the saving grace, which may fetch some targeted fans towards the cinema halls.
