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:

Comedy and Anees Bazmee

Comedy and Anees Bazmee are a team! One still remembers and loves his films like ‘No Entry’ and ‘Welcome’. So we are hoping that ‘Mubarakan’ will be a laugh riot. Also, Bazmee teams up with Anil Kapoor again. The director has a knack of comedy and his films have a certain tone which definitely tickle the funny bone.

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.

The trailer

The promo of ‘Mubarakan’ promises the film to be a chaotic laugh ride. There’s confusion, family drama and a lot of Punjabi quotient. It has aroused immense curiousity for the film.

The genre

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.
