8 films 7 days
1 February promises to be an exciting Friday with eight releases and all have some or the other reason to be watched.
On top of my list is Bejoy Nambiar’s David. If Shaitan and the rendition of Khoya khoya chand…is anything to go by here is a director to watch out for.
Mai for the mighty talented Asha Bhosle! There is nothing that Asha tai has not or cannot do be it cabaret, classical, rock, rap or remix. At 80 she appears on a reality show and sparkles and now proves that she can sing note perfect and also act and dance.
Listen Aamaya to check if Faroque Shaikh and Deepti Naval can still retain the chemistry. Tell me O Khuda was only a cameo to arrive at any decision.
Viswaroopam to find out what the fuss was all about and to record if the hype lives up to the expectations of the box-office.
Deewana Main Deewana to document the journey of the glorious Priyanka Chopra.
Two regional films make it to theatres this week. Marathi film and festival traveled Premachi Gosht and Mani Ratnam AR Rahman Tamil film with English subtitles Kadal. Kadal stars Mani fav heo Arvind Swamy.
Last but not the least, Salman Rushdie and Deepa Mehta combine Midnight’s Children which is not just the most controversial film but also the flavour of the season.
Watch out this space how I rate each of them on Friday ka Faisla.
