Abhay Del and Patralekha have just joined hands to see the release of their upcoming horror comedy ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ which was given something of a teaser by the makers. What on earth could possible be the point of a 16 second teaser which only has one unimportant dialogue on the close up of Abhay Deol intended to be funny but is not because there is no context to it. Abhay has developed a habit of either working with Anand Rai or doing pathetic films which don’t even have a motive to it.
Since ‘Golmaal Again’ came out in the Diwali of 2017 as a horror comedy and became a gigantic blockbuster, everyone is having their way with the genre and it’s Abhay this time trying to experiment with this comedy which is very being badly marketed to say the least about it. ‘Citylights’ famed Patralekha who starred opposite Raj Rao is playing the role of a ghost who has entered the house of Abhay who in turn is portraying the character of a crook. Anushka Sharma has been experimenting with horror firstly in a romantic tonality with ‘Phillauri’ and than in ‘Pari’ with a rather serious and mesmerizing performance. Cause of mentioning that was to put across the fact that somehow horror genre has risen back from the dead only to be buried with the same speed.
Rajkumar Rao is also currently shooting for his upcoming horror comedy ‘Stree’ co-starring Shraddha Kapoor and Aparshakti Khurana. Hindi film makers have a disease of following an established trend blindly till they have milked it to it’s last core and audience can’t have it anymore. They pick on a genre without thinking that worked well only because it was something new for the audience instead of saying the same thing again. ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ will release on 20 April 2018.
