Predictions of Forthcoming films

SHOOTOUT AT WADALA: The film has got the buzz and the item songs have ensured that the hoi-polloi flocks to theater. The film can have around 9-10cr Day 1 and 30-32cr weekend which will be healthy enough. If accepted well, the film can have a very strong run as there is no hard-core Mass film

Cast: Jimmy Shergill, Raj Babbar, Mahie Gill, Irrfan Khan, Soha Ali Khan. Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia Length: 2.20 hours approx. Now the prequel to this film that released in September 2011, wasn’t exactly great film, but it had a strong story-line which kept the moments glued and the film engaging. What lacked there was the sort

Sanket’s Review: “Kai Po Che” has unfeigned charm.

Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Raj Kumar yadav, Amrita Puri. Director: Abhishek Kapoor Length : 2 hrs approximately Borrowed from the written material of Chetan Bhagat’s “3 Mistakes of my life”, director Abhishek Kapoor’s cinematic adaptation KAI PO CHE remains mostly faithful to the novel.

Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandes, Amesha Patel. Director: Abbas-Mastan Length : 2.25 hours approximately Spoon-Feeding in thrillers is something that plays major spoilsport, but keeping things unanswered doesn’t harm any less.

Box Office Predictions of RACE 2

Sanket’s Review: “Inkaar” is frustratingly poor film.

Cast: Arjun Rampal, Chitrangada Singh. Director: Sudhir Mishra Length : 2.05 hours approximately Coming from Sudhir Mishra, its hard to believe INKAAR is such a frustratingly poor film.

Director: Vishal Bhardwaj Length: 2.30 hours approximately Vishal Bhardwaj is known for making “out of the box” type of cinema.

Worst films of 2012- My views.

10. EKK DEEWANA THA: Remake of a south film, “Ekk tha deewana” is painfully long even at modest run-time of 140 minutes. Even Rahman’s music score fails to inject life in the film. Not completely unbearable, thanks to few adorable moments in first half, but for the most part its a film that bores you!
