Milap Zaveri took to social media handle and announced that the principal production of his upcoming film ‘Satyameva Jayate’ starring John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee. Release date of the film is 15 August to make complete use of the genre upon which the film is riding. It’s a patriotic thriller that will be having nation building purity messages for sure that should appeal with the audience on such an occasion. Film will be having some tough competition from Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’ which also depends on the bravado of patriotism to connect with the audience.
John has a film releasing next week by the name of ‘Parmaanu’ which is also a patriotic thriller based upon the nuclear test India did in Rajasthan. This territory of patriotic films are quite safe as far as box office is concerned because people usually resonate with such stories and somebody does not believe it than they should check the box office reports of Akshay Kumar films. Salman Khan’s films also dabble into this form of film making/narrative though they are usually larger than life while Akshay is quite routed with his choice of tales be it his latest one Padman.
John is also getting into it like Neeraj Pandey with a bunch of smart thrillers dealing with government and espionage. John has seen a few failures lately by the name of Rocky Handsome and Force 2 because those films did not have rich stories and he can’t carry a film just based on his starpower. Parmaanu as a tale is very gripping going by the trailer and might not give breathing time as John said in his latest interview. Satyamev Jayate seems to be John’s strategy of doing a particular kind of films that would guarantee him a certain amount of box office especially because he is a producer as well.
