Our Opening Day Prediction
Shoojit Sircar is all set to intrigue the audiences with his upcoming movie ‘OCTOBER’. The film is not a love story but it’s a story about love. The film looks like a surreal love story, it’s unlike Varun Dhawan’s previous films and there is a huge buzz about the film.
Be it any genre, slice of life drama films are always entertaining to watch. Slice of life is a genre that is more akin to melodrama than drama, bordering on absurd due to the large numbers of dramatic and comedic events in very short spans. In the past one has seen films like ‘Dear Zindagi’, English Vinglish, Queen and many more which has done brilliantly at the box-office and also critically. These films have redefined the mainstream bollywood movies. OCTOBER is also of the same genre but also largely is a love story and the trailer promises that it has all the potential to break all the norms and become a highly successful film.
Shoojit Sircar-Juhi Chaturvedi
What does one say about this writer-director combination. They’ve given us films like ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Madras Café’, ‘Piku’, and now they’ve teamed up for ‘October’. One only expects some great cinema from this duo and clearly, one of the major USP’s of ‘October’ is the team of Shoojit Sircar and Juhi Chaturvedi.
