Getting ready for Diwali – 1903

By 9 November, 2020Uncategorized

Diwali is round the corner and considering the difficult times we are going through; it is amazing that three important films are gearing up for a festive opening. The most important and controversial of course is Akshay Kumar’s Laxmi (censor board has asked the producer to drop ‘bomb’ from the title), the second is T Series produced and Anurag Basu directed Ludo featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Aditya Roy Kapoor.  

The third, on a more modest budget is Zee Studios Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari helmed by director Abhishek Sharma starring super talented Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh and Fatima Sana Shaikh tells the story of a wedding detective agency which runs background checks on prospective groom.

The trailer reveals Bajpayee playing multiple roles from a beggar, a dabbawala to a Maharashtrian woman in a nauvari saree. The producer has released a behind – the – scenes video sharing the prosthetic process.

It is amazing how much cinema how much cinema has changed over the decades. Once upon a time, the old guards said that a film is made on two tables – the writing table and the editing table, today, a third table has been added to the making of a blockbuster- the marketing table that can build and break a film or a star!!
