The grim scenario in the face of the coronavirus outbreak continues the world over. And the film industry in India is no exception. Uncertainty is the catchword as far as the release position of forthcoming films is concerned. And this, not just because one doesn’t know when things will be normal once again.
Even if it is assumed that normalcy returns after mid-April till which time the country is in lockdown mode, it is not necessary that film releases will start forthwith thereafter. Several factors will decide whether films will start releasing as soon as the cinemas reopen. For one, the release position would depend upon how the country is able to fight the epidemic. If the fear in public minds persists even after things limp back to normalcy, producers of big-budget films may not be in a mood to get their films to the cinemas immediately. A film like Sooryavanshi is expected to take a phenomenal initial and the film’s producers and distributors will not risk that at any cost. For, based on the fear factor, members of the public would want to decide whether they would frequent public places like cinemas forthwith or after the passage of some days/weeks. Also, if cinemas in India do what the cinemas of China are doing after they reopened this week, it would be suicidal for producers of big-ticket entertainers like Sooryavanshi and Radhe to plan their release soon after public places are allowed to reopen. In China, tickets are being issued not for consecutive seat numbers but after keeping two or three adjacent seats vacant for every seat ticket sold so that the audience maintains some sort of social distancing. Since big-budgeted and big star cast films are made with the belief that they will open huge, it would be catastrophic for them to be released with 25% or 33% occupancy only.
While Sooryavanshi is ready for release, films like Radhe and Laxmmi Bomb are still incomplete and will take time to come to the cinemas. A bit of shooting remains to be done to complete Radhe. The post-production work of Laxmmi Bomb is also incomplete. One doubts if the two Eid-scheduled releases will be able to keep their date with the audiences.

Fox Star Studios and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.’s Baaghi 3 (UA) is the third film in the Baaghi franchise. It is the story of two brothers, one a brave man, and the other, a timid person. They live in Agra.
Ronnie Chaturvedi (Tiger Shroff) and Vikram Chaturvedi (Ritesh Deshmukh) are brothers. Right from childhood, Vikram is timid while Ronnie is firebrand. In spite of being the younger one, Ronnie always saves Vikram from difficult situations. Their father (Jackie Shroff) is a police officer who lays down his life in the call of duty even when the two sons are very young. While dying, the father takes a vow from Ronnie that he would always protect Vikram. And that’s what Ronnie does.
Ronnie continues to protect Vikram even after the latter becomes a police officer. So even though Vikram is petrified of action, he becomes a hero because Ronnie brings all criminals to book while the world thinks, the job has been accomplished by Vikram.
One day, Vikram is sent to Syria by the police department to investigate the human trafficking racket which starts in India and ends in Syria. In India, IPL (Jaideep Ahlawat) kidnaps entire families and sends them to Syria where don Abu Jalal (Jameel Khoury) kills them with a purpose. Unfortunately, Ronnie does not accompany Vikram to Syria.
As expected, Vikram is picked up by Abu Jalal’s men in Syria. Ronnie and his girlfriend, Siya (Shraddha Kapoor), reach Syria in search of Vikram even as Vikram’s pregnant wife, Ruchi (Ankita Lokhande), waits for him in Agra. Ruchi is the sister of Siya.
What happens in Syria? Is Vikram safe? Do Ronnie and Vikram succeed in eliminating the don and his army?
The story is heavily inspired by the story of Sunil Shetty starrer Gopi Kishan. It has been adapted by Sajid Nadiadwala and suitably modified to go with the modern times. The story abounds in action but it has a fair dose of emotions between the two brothers. The screenplay, penned by Farhad Samji, with additional screenplay by Sparsh Khetarpal, Tash Bhambra and Madhur Sharma, is well-written in the first half but takes a dip after interval. The pre-interval portion moves at a pretty fast pace and doesn’t give the audience time to think, also because plenty of characters are introduced one after the other. The second half has an overdose of action and is also somewhat repetitive. Some turns and twists even appear a bit weird. For example, IPL has a change of heart a bit too quickly in the second half. The family of Asif reaching Syria also appears forced.
However, the screenplay never really loses its grip on the viewers despite some shortcomings. On the positive side, the blending of the emotional track in the action drama is well done. Some light moments, some melodrama and plenty of dramatic turns and twists make the film quite engrossing and entertaining. Overall, the first half entertains a lot but the second half does become weak although it keeps the audience involved. Romance is minimal, which is a minus point.
Farhad Samji’s dialogues are lovely. Some dialogues evoke a lot of laughter while some dramatic ones are clapworthy.
Tiger Shroff breathes fire into the character of Ronnie. His action scenes and stunts are just too extraordinary and it is clear that Tiger has surpassed himself. Many of his stunts are a delight to watch. His dances are supremely graceful. His acting is also good except in a couple of scenes of breakdown, where he could’ve done better. Ritesh Deshmukh plays Vikram ably. He acts with effortless ease. Shraddha Kapoor is good as Siya. Her semi-vulgar dialogues are entertaining. Ankita Lokhande is quite nice as Ruchi. Jaideep Ahlawat leaves a fine mark in the role of IPL. Vijay Varma makes his presence amply felt as Akhtar Lahori. Jameel Khoury is menacing in the role of don Abu Jalal. Ivan Kostadinov is alright as Zaidi. Satish Kaushik is very entertaining as police officer BMC. Virendra Saxena has his moments as police officer Tripathi. Jackie Shroff makes a fine mark as police officer Chaturvedi. Shifuji S. Bharadwaj does a fair job as police officer Mishra. Manav Gohil is okay as Asif. Shriswara Dubey does fairly well as Hafeeza. Master Ayaan Zubair Rahmani (as young Ronnie) and master Yash Bhojwani (as young Vikram) are cute and confident. Disha Patani looks very sexy in special appearance in a dance number. Amit Sharma (as Bajwa), Danish Bhat (as Bilal), Sunit Morarjee (as police inspector Kute), master Aekam Binjwe (as Junaid), Farhad Samji (as the man in the toilet), Firoz Khan (as Rocky Hatela), Pradeep Kabra (as Rocky Hatela’s sidekick), Shilpa Mhatre (as police officer Tripathi’s wife), Slavisa Kajevski (as Andre Gomez), baby Vasilije (as the kid on the landmine), Ashish Sharma (as the interpreter hostage) and the rest provide good support.
Ahmed Khan’s direction is effective. He caters to the masses with full gusto and keeps the viewers’ interest alive with his fast-paced narration. Of the songs (composed by Vishal-Shekhar, Bappi Lahiri, Tanishk Bagchi, Sachet-Parampara, Rochak Kohli and Pranaay), the original songs are okay whereas the remixed numbers are very good. Lyrics (Panchhi Jalounvi, Indivar, Tanishk Bagchi, Shabbir Ahmed, Gurpreet Saini, Gautam G. Sharma and Ginni Diwan) are alright. Song picturisations (by Ahmed Khan, Ganesh Acharya, Adil Shaikh and Prince Gupta) are eye-filling. Julius Packiam’s background music is effective. Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran’s cinematography is splendid. Action scenes have been beautifully designed by Ahmed Khan, and their choreography by Ram-Laxman and Kecha Khampakdee is mind-numbing. The action scenes are of the kind rarely seen earlier on the Hindi screen. They will greatly appeal to the masses and single-screen cinema audiences. Manini Mishra’s production designing is appropriate. Rameshwar S. Bhagat’s editing is sharp.
On the whole, Baaghi 3 has great action to see it emerge a box-office winner. It will not prove to be a blockbuster but it will pay handsome dividends to all concerned. It is yet another film which will comfortably join the Rs. 100-crore club.
Released on 6-3-’20 at Regal (daily 4 shows) and other cinemas of Bombay by Fox Star Studios India Pvt. Ltd. Publicity: very good. Opening: very good in single-screen cinemas but only fairly good in multiplexes. The opening is adversely affected due to examination period, coronavirus scare and the dull pre-Holi days. …….Also released all over. Opening ranged from fair to very good everywhere. Collections picked up as the day progressed.


Red Chillies Entertainment and Drishyam Films’ Kaamyaab (UA) is the story of a character actor in Bollywood.
Sudheer (Sanjay Mishra) has worked for years as a character actor in Bollywood films, playing varied roles from a villain’s sidekick to a doctor. Although some of his film dialogues have become iconic, he has not been able to make a distinct identity of himself as he was never the lead actor in a film. This has left him bitter. He is also unhappy about how the director of his last film had cheated him by mixing two shots — of him doing push-ups, and a girl feigning love-making — to make it look as if he and she were indulging in sex.
Sudheer has never kept count of the number of films he has acted in and he is pleasantly surprised when he learns that he has been a part of 499 films. He is keen to touch the magical figure of 500 and for that, he approaches his casting director-friend, Gulati (Deepak Dobriyal).
Does Sudheer get his 500th film? What is the reaction of his married daughter when he decides to work in one last film, in view of his bad experience in the previous film?
Hardik Mehta has penned a story and screenplay which are about the film industry, its working and its typicalities. While people from the film industry may be able to identify with the characters and the milieu, the general audience which is not connected with the film industry would find it difficult to comprehend several things in the drama. Another drawback of the drama is that it lacks in emotions as it does not induce tears from the viewers’ eye. A screenplay of this kind of film should’ve made the audience cry for Sudheer but that doesn’t happen. This may be because Sudheer is shown to be pretty confident of himself and not really the one to take nonsense from anybody. Even Sudheer’s personal life fails to tug at the viewers’ heart-strings.
This is not to say that the story and screenplay have no plus points. Of course, there are some enjoyable and entertaining moments but the overall impact is not what it ought to have been. The drama, therefore, becomes one which will be appreciated by a thin section of the class audience and the festival circuit audience.
Dialogues, written by Radhika Anand and Hardik Mehta, are natural.
Sanjay Mishra does justice to the character of Sudheer and acts with conviction. Deepak Dobriyal provides light moments with a fine performance in the role of casting director Gulati. Sarika Singh makes her mark as Sudheer’s daughter, Bhavna. Akashdeep Arora leaves a fine impression as Shibu. Isha Talwar lends good support as the budding actress who lives in the same building as Sudheer. Avtar Gill provides lovely support as himself. Nasir Khan has his moments as the film director. Baby Kaurwakee Vashistha (as Sudheer’s grand-daughter), Manoj Bakshi (as the 1980s’ villain), Birbal (as himself), Devas Dixit (as Gulati’s assistant), Ramesh Goyal (as himself), Viju Khote (as himself), Liliput (as himself), Manmauji (as himself), Guddi Maruti (as herself), Anil Nagrath (as himself), Bachchan Pachera (as himself), Vikas Verma (as the film hero), Rafiya Khan (as assistant director), Mukesh Prajapati (as the bouquet delivery boy), Amitabh Shrivastava (as Nirmal), Devika Vatsa (as Gulati’s assistant), Pranav Joshi (as the production controller), Pavitra Sarkar (as the film cameraman), Gargi Patel (as the school principal), Simran Gangwani (as the school teacher) and the others are adequate.
Hardik Mehta’s direction is reasonably nice for a debut film. Rachita Arora’s music and Neeraj Pandey’s lyrics are so-so. Background music (Rachita Arora) could’ve been better. Piyush Puty’s camerawork is fair. Ravi Srivastava’s production designing is appropriate. Prashanth Ramachandran Jayalakshmi’s editing is quite sharp.
On the whole, Kaamyaab is more for the festival circuit and will, therefore, not do much at the turnstiles.
Released on 6-3-’20 at Inox (daily 2 shows) and other cinemas of Bombay thru PEN Marudhar Cine Entertainment. Publicity: fair in digital world. Opening: poor. …….Also released all over. Opening was below the mark everywhere.
