Opening Day Collection
The trailer of ‘Mubarakan’ makes us believe the ﬁlm is funny, chaotic and crazy. With a very interesting ensemble, and the promise of being an entertaining, we believe ‘Mubarakan’ will strike a chord with the audience especially, the mass audience. Here’s a detailed analysis of what we think will work in its favour:
The ensemble cast
A good ﬁlm, let’s say, a comedy not only requires a good script but also a team of actors who can make people laugh. Comedy needs some great timing and what does one say about Anil Kapoor? He is unbeatable, not just for the fact that he seems to be looking younger and younger with age, but also is comic timing is impeccable. His collaboration with Anees Bazmee in the past has also been hugely appreciated. This time around he is seen in an all-new Punjabi avatar. On the other hand, he teams up with Arjun Kapoor for the ﬁrst time who has his own niche skills and fan following. Their chemistry is what might be the biggest USP of ‘Mubarakan’. This is Athiya Shetty’s second ﬁlm post ‘Hero’ and the ﬁlm also stars Ileana D’cruz.
It’s been a while since we saw a big, single screen, mass-oriented comedy. Even Salman Khan starrer ‘Tubelight’ which people thought would be a mass ﬁlm, wasn’t really one. It was different from Khan’s image, and was pretty niche. The single-screen audience might just love to be entertained by ‘Mubarakan’. It might just be like a breath of fresh air from the serious, intellectual ﬁlms we’ve been seeing lately. Well, we actually did have ‘Guest Iin London’ at the box-office, which did an average business. Here’s hoping ‘Mubarakan’ is liked by the audience when it releases on July 28.
