Our Opening Day Prediction
‘Ittefaq’ is an adaption of 1969 classic ﬁlm, ‘Ittefaq’ – starring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda. The new ﬁlm stars Sonakshi Sinha, Sidharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna. The ﬁlm promises a classic old mystery with the story being told from two people’s perspective. The ﬁlm is the late BR Chopra’s grandson Abhay Chopra’s directorial debut, co- produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma productions and BR ﬁlms. Here we state why we think the ﬁlm will strike a chord at the box-office. The ﬁlm is slated to release on November 3, 2017.
Be it any genre ﬁlm but murder mysteries are always one of the genres that are looked after more – for its making, suspense and thrill that it gives the audience while watching the ﬁlm. It is obvious to say that it keeps a person engaged and entertained throughout the film. It is one of the genres that is most likely to not get people bored. It is captivating because the audience is gripped in suspecting and judging the murderer throughout the film until the climax is revealed. Murder mysteries have been made ever since the ﬁlm industry emerged and is always been appreciated and accepted by the viewers. Murder mystery ﬁlms like ‘Talaash’, ‘Drishyam’, ‘Kaun’, ‘Gupt’ which are still remembered and is an all time watch. ‘Ittefaq’ seems to be heading in the same space and make its mark once again with the recreated verse.
Murder mysteries are not so known for songs and music but the title song of the ﬁ lm “Ittefaq Se (Raat Baki)” is simply attractive and pleasing to hear. While the original was voiced by Asha Bhosle and Bappi Lahiri, the remix has been sung by Jubin Nautiyal and Nikita Gandhi. Tanishk Bagchi has recreated Bappi Lahiri’s evergreen composition which has hit the chartbusters.
