Aamir Khan took to twitter to compliment and congratulate the whole team behind Sail Ali Khan starrer Kaalakaandi. The makers of the film held a special screening of Aamir before the release and than he expressed his views of the film on twitter. Akshat Verma, director of Kaalakaandi has worked with Aamir before on a film called Delhi Belly, which he wrote and Aamir produced. Delhi Belly has a cult status today and Kaalakaandi is the same genre of comedy. By his own admission Aamir has not laughed as much in years and last time was when he read the script of Delhi Belly which was 6 years ago.
Going by his statement Aamir is not mincing words and going all out to express his profound happiness and why not, it’s been 7 years since he laughed so much. Saif Ali’s career is down the giant rabbit hole which indicates a non opening for Kaalakaandi. To earn the budget back film has to really stand it’s ground tall but Anurag Kashyap’s Mukkabaaz is being extremely appreciated by everyone. Both the films re content driven which is partly sad for Saif as now has competition from Vineet Singh who is literally doing a lead role for the first time.
Saif spent a lifetime doing mindless commercial entertainer in order to become a commercially viable star and the super failure of his film Chef despite of it being good explains that all his effort was worth nothing. If a star who has been playing lead role in big films for 25 years can’t even get a opening for his content driven cinema and has competition from Mukkabaaz in terms of collection than it explains that a film career does not come with insurance. Kaalakaandi and Mukkabaaz will both open on 12 January worldwide and trade is fairly divided amongst the opening of these 2 films.
