Good Luck Jerry Trailer Out – Janhvi Kapoor And Deepak Dobriyal Play It Out Well In This Drug-Based Drama
A remake of Hollywood flick, Hitch, starring Will Smith, Kevin James, Evan Mendes and Amber Valleta, Partner had high dose of comedy, hit music and masala entertainment which was loved by the audience but panned by critics. The Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Govinda and Lara Dutta starrer Partner turned out to be “Super-Hit” at the box office, collecting a solid Rs 60.04 crore against a budget of Rs 28 crore.
Directed by Rajan Khosla , Gattu is a welcome change as it brings back the childhood memories of kite-flying , being mischievous in school , playing pranks on your teacher. The film duration is 75 mins and every frame is amazing to watch. The kite-flying scene is eye-catching ( on the same par with Kite Runner). Cinematography is good. Dialogues are nice. Editing is crispy. Screenplay is gripping. Hats off to Rajan Khosla for choosing a different subject based in North India. Mohd Samad was perfect for the role of street-smart , mischievous, good-at-heart Gattu. He emotes so well through his eye and is amazing to watch him act.
An honest attempt, made on a shoe-string budget, with beautiful picturisation. Gattu managed to collect just Rs 1.30 crore against a budget of Rs 2.75 crore.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, who earlier made blockbusters like Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Dhadak was a remake of Marathi film, Sairat. The Ishan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor starrer Dhadak opened well at the box office due to the Dharma Production brand, tuneful music and aggressive promotion.
Dhadak collected a solid Rs 73 crore against a budget of Rs 41 crore, turning out to be “Super-Hit” at the box office.
