Our Opening Day Prediction
‘Helicopter Eela’, which is based on Anand Gandhi’s play ‘Beta Kaagdo’ deals with a mother-son relationship and the idea of regaining oneself. The trailer so far has received some great feedback. We think the fi lm will strike a chord amongst cinegoers and here’s why!
One doesn’t see more of her in movies. She comes after a while on-screen and her fans wait for her. Also, she comes with fi lms that have a certain value attached to them, or the audience perhaps expects her to be associated with fi lms of a certain stature and quality. So, her fans might just lap on to this one for seeing Kajol onscreen after a while, and in a fun element!
aBased on a play
It’s a great trend for movies which are based on plays or a book being made. ‘Helicopter Eela’ is based on a Gujarati play ‘Beta Kaagdo’ so a section of the audience might already have a certain recall value, wanting them to watch the fi lm. Also, only when a play or book is well received, will it be turned into a fi lm for a larger audience, so the expectations are pretty high!
