Joker Returns To Indian Theatres On Valentine’s Day



Imtiaz Ali’s Kartik Aryan-Sara Ali Khan starrer Love Aaj Kal has unexpected competition this Valentine’s  Day. 

Philip Todd’s worldwide  blockbuster  Joker  re-opens in cinemas across India on  February 14.

According sources the  film’s producers  are  confident of the film’s  large victory at the Oscars  on   10 February.

“This is why the  film is being brought  back four days after the Oscars. Joaquin Phoenix’s  Best Actor Oscar for Joker is a no-brainer.The  film is also a very strong contender for Best Film and Best Director. Any or all of these Oscars means a a successful re-run for  Joker,” says a source.

Not  only is  Joker the most successful ‘A’ rated  film of all times, it is also the most successful English-language  film in India of  all times. While other  potential hits from Hollywood are dubbed into Hindi languages , Joker  was  released  in  the original English language  only.

In a  surprise move, Warner  Brothers   released   Joker on October  2, alongside  Yash Raj Films’ War and  the Chiranjeevi  costume drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Joker  was  originally  slated  for an October 4 release.But Warner saw  more wisdom in coming  on the National  holiday on October  2 with the  other two  Hindi blockbusters  considering   how talked-about  Joker had  become  the worldwide.
