Total Dhamaal To Not Release In Pakistan, But Is It The Right Time To Release It In India?

 In  the wake  of the  Pulwama  attack  the  makers  of  this week’s comedy  flick Total Dhamaal  have taken a collective decision to  not release  their film  in  Pakistan.

This may , in principle, seem  like the  politically correct thing to do. Except for  the fact that the release  of this loud comedy was  already  iffy in Pakistan even before its makers  came forward  with their decision.

Sources  close to  the  BJP government inform that  all cultural exchange including film releases, will be  banned  henceforth until the  tension at the border  is defused.

A  more immediate  concern   for  the  makers  of  Total Dhamaal is the war film Uri . The  film projecting the inside details of  the surgical strike against  Pakistan in 2016. The film again  packing it in theaters across the  country.

The  manager  of a theatre from a popular multiplex chain says Uri reflects  the  mood of the country. “People are  very angry and they want  revenge for what’s been done to  ourjawaans. Uri is about avenging the aggression from across the  border. The film had already done record-breaking  business.  It’s now showing another  sharp increase  in  footfalls after the Pulwama attack. Total  Dhamaal  is not what the audience wants at the  moment.”
