Actor Vicky Kaushal, who is playing the role of an Indian commando in the recently released ‘Uri – The Surgical Strike’, has said the entire film team is going through a surreal feeling that audience has accepted their war-drama film with open arms.
Vicky Kaushal was interacting with media after success of ‘Uri…’ along with his co-stars Mohit Raina and Yami Gautam on Saturday in Mumbai.
The movie is based on the 2016 Indian Army’s surgical strikes inside Pakistan as a retaliation for the Uri terrorist attack.
The film picked up pace on second day and collected 20 crore at the box-office in 2 days.
Vicky Kaushal praised his co-actors and director Aditya Dhar for being part of the film. “I am really happy for the actors and director of the film because it is Adtiya’s (Dhar) first film as a director,” he said.
“In today’s age, it is very difficult for a debutant director to get backing from producers for the story and then get a huge release for his film. Ultimately, when audience appreciates the film then, it’s really special thing for the entire team,” said Vicky.
Yesterday makers of ‘Uri…’ hosted a special screening for the Army personnel.
“It feels really great when Army men appreciate your film because we have made this film to pay tribute for their work” said Vicky.
“Yesterday, we hosted the screening for Sikh Regiment. Interestingly, they trained all actors who are playing the role of commando in the film so, it was a special moment for us because during the training, they used to scold us. But yesterday, they were appreciating our performance,” he said.
Asked if his team would like to host a special screening for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said, “Definitely.. we would love to, but I don’t think he will have the time.”
The film stars Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari, Mohit Raina and Paresh Rawal in key roles. It is produced by RSVP movies and directed by Aditya Dhar.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh also posted that glowing word of mouth has helped movie to pick up on day 2 collection making a total collection of 20 crores in 2 days.
Much awaited movie of this year, Student of the Year 2 releases today. Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Pandey starrer has created quite a buzz for its fresh cast, debutants and buzz from the sets. Being a Dharma Production, there is a lot of expectations from the film.
Karan Johar’s Student of the Year released in 2012 (film’s prequel) had also created quite a stir with a power packed cast of newcomers Alia Bhat, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra who made their debut with this blockbuster. The film is loved even today. Student of the Year 2 has been directed by Punit Malhotra. Take a look at the trailer:
From the first hand the Ananya Pandey has been lauded for her acting as debutant and Tiger Shroff steals the show with his acting, dance and fight scenes. The story line however looks a little weak for holding the audience for two hours. Take a look at what audience has to say:
The movie, backed by Dharma Productions, depicts the bravery of 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikh Regiment (now the 4th Battalion of Sikh Regiment) of British India defending an Army post against more than 10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen.
Akshay expressed his happiness with a tweet: “It’s been overwhelming, this journey of ‘Kesari’ and your love.”
Karan Johar is elated over the successful run and shared: “Thank you for believing in the spirit of ‘Kesari’.”
Kesari was released with 4200 screens globally with 3600 screens in India and 600 screens in other countries.
It seems like Ranveer Singh’s charm with audience has worked once again as Zoya Akhtar directorial Gully boy has impressed the audience with its easy-to-connect storyline, performances and impactful rap numbers.
The film garnered Rs 19.40 crore on its opening day and has received good reviews from critics as well as the audience.
Gully boy earned Rs 18.65 crore on
the third day of its release, taking the total collection to Rs 51.15 crore.
As per film critics Ranveer Singh brings a restrained swagger to the part: there is a gentleness to his anger. His Murad shows that Singh can tamp down on his characteristic boisterousness to create something of value, even though sometimes you can see the effort show.” Ultimately, this is a film to enjoy. In today’s India, to bring a Murad and Safeena, their Muslim-ness a matter-of-fact statement, into centre-stage, to give traction to those who live on the wrong side of the tracks, is an act of bravery. ‘Inka time aa gaya’. Rap along.”
