Komal Nahta previews Suneil Shetty's 'Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baki Hai' and Kainaz Motivala's 'Challo Driver'
Renowned Trade Expert Komal Nahta analyses whether Suneil Shetty starrer Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baki Hai, and Kainaz Motivala starrer Challo Driver will be able to see sufficient footfalls in the theatre, enough to make the producer smile.
Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baki Hai has not been promoted decently enough for it to create any sort of curiosity in the minds of the people. Even otherwise, it doesn’t have a star cast which could warrant a good opening. Suneil Shetty, Udita Goswami, Rajpal Yadav, Om Puri, Deepak Shirke and others comprise the cast of the film, written and directed by Rajnish Raj Thakur who, before this, had made Loot.
Obviously then, the film about the crazy ways of the film industry people, will have to depend upon positive word of mouth if it has to do anything worthwhile at the ticket windows.
The public is barely aware that a film of the name Challo Driver is opening today. With a rank newcomer (Vickrant Mahajan) as the lead man and Kainaz Motivala as the heroine, it cannot be expected to take even an average initial. Probably, Manoj Pahwa and Prem Chopra are the only recognizable faces in the film, besides Kainaz. Even the songs haven’t been popularized enough for the film to open well on that count.
