Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi has made the film industry hopeful about the future of movie theatres.
And never mind Bunty Aur Babli 2.
All eyes are now glued on Milap Zaveri’s Satyameva Jayate2 where John Abraham not only takes on Salman Khan’s Antim: The Final Conflict he also plays three roles for the first time.
John says Satyameva Jayate is aimed straight at the masses. “It’s not a niche film. It’s not meant to get critical acclaim.”
Satyameva Jayate 2 director Milap Zaveri says Sooryavanshi is a game-changer for the boxoffice. “I’m absolutely delighted with Sooryavanshi’s box office performance. I think Indian cinema will now be known as pre –Sooryavanshi and post-Sooryavanshi. I have maintained since a year-and-a-half that the day this film releases audiences will be back in a huge way and I’m so glad Rohit Shetty proved me right.”
About Satyameva Jayate in 2018 I had written in my review, “.Satyameva Jayate is not designed for those who dug their grey cells into Newton and came out feeling like alumni on a space odyssey. This is a film for the masses, the commoners who everyday have to face discrimination and corruption on the streets where a lot of people don’t just work but also live sleep and defecate.
Road rage for them is not about a dent in their gleaming cars. It’s about survival. SJ throws a very opportune question at us: why do we tolerate corruption in our system on such a hideously aggravated scale? Is corruption part of our DNA? The corruption in the police force, which this film, takes on headlong, is especially worrisome . If a society doesn’t have law enforcers who do their jobs honestly, the law-breaks are bound to be on a rampage.”
Now onto the next chapter.
