Nautanki Saala v/s Commando
This week saw the release of 2 films, Nautanki Saala and Commando. While Nautanki Saala saw the return of the Vicky Donor star, Ayushmann Khurranna joined by the Delhi Belly star Kunaal Roy Kapoor, Commando saw the launch of Vidyut Jamwal in the lead role.
Nautanki Saala has been directed by Rohan Sippy also has Pooja Salvi and Evelyn Sharma playing the female leads. Nautanki Saala has been promoted well and it is expected to be a crowd puller irrespective of the ongoing Indian Premiere League. The movie has been made on a low budget but Rohan Sippy is confident of his direction. His movie is being released along with Commando, which is a high action packed film. The film stars Vidyut Jamwal and Pooja Chopra in the lead roles. Commando has been directed by Dilip Ghosh and has been produced by Vipul Shah. Vidyut Jamwal was very promising in his debut film where he played the supporting role. He even won the Filmfare award for the Best Actor Debut. The makers have already planned the sequel for their film. Jamwal as heard saying, “I am born to do action. I can't see myself doing anything else. It is not a good thing to say but I want to be typecast as an action hero. I don't want to do a movie that has no action.”
Nautanki Saala circles around Ram Parmar (Ayushmann Khuranna), who meets Mandar Lele (Kunaal Roy Kapur), a solitary and anxious man. What ensues is a tale of friendship and bonding amidst all the hardships of life. Ayushmann's debut film won 3 national awards and the movie was received very well by the audiences. Ayushmann has sung a song in this film as well, Sadi Galli. Ayushmann says, “I would say that I am fortunate that I am getting an opportunity to sing in my films. There are hardly any singer-actor or actor-singer in Bollywood,”
At the same time, Vidyut Jamwal was heard quiping, “It's a very big privilege for me to come as a solo lead. I am very happy that Vipul Shah and Dilip Ghosh have given me this privilege. The problem with action film is that everybody says 'Oh it is an action film so there will be nothing but just action and fights. It will be brain dead. Unfortunately, people have this mindset because it is action”
It definitely seems like a good week.
