The romantic comedy Baat Bann Gayi, directed by Shuja Ali and starring among others Ali Fazal and Anisa with Gulsan Grover and Amrita Raichand, is to be released on a gazette holiday, 11 October when Dussehra and Eid-Ul-Azha coincide.

With the punch line, ‘Double Trouble, Double Mazaa’, producer Sayed Asif Jah said his film is being released on this date as no other filmmaker has dared to release his film at that time.

“Anil Sharma’s Singh Sahab The Great has joined this league as they have shifted their release date from11 October to November end. Incidentally, Balaji Films has postponed the release of Ragini MMS 2 from this given date thus paving way for Baat Bann Gayi to be a clear winner,” he added.

He said, “The year 2013 has been Bollywood’s most successful year so far, which have had many films shifting their release dates to hit the silver screen on a suitable week. Almost every week there have been four to five new releases and in some weeks the numbers have gone to as high as ten. Picking a good release date has been a big task for corporate houses and movie makers.

Considering the mammoth success of Chennai Express was released on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr and is still running to packed houses. “We have decided to release our film, Baat Bann Gayi, on 11 October, as there are two events Dussehra and Bakri Eid - and we would like to capitalise on this opportunity as well,” he added.

Baat Bann Gayi is presented by Jaypeeco India and Vibhu Agarwal. The movie is produced by Sayed Asif Jah and Megha Agarwal and is directed by Shuja Ali. The film is a production of Jaypeeco Infotainment in association with ASR Media. Baat Bann Gayi, stars Ali Fazal, Gulsan Grover, Anisa, Amrita Raichand, Razzak Khan and Akshay Singh.

As in Gulzar’s 1982 film ‘Angoor’, Baat Bann Gayi is based on Shakespeare’s ‘Comedy of Errors’ enriched with the classical plot of ‘duals’, depicting the comic situations when lookalike of characters encounter each other. Unexpected, hilarious and utterly humorous situations arise because of mistaken identity. Lots of trouble and confusions turn the flow of narrative into a hilarious, thriller goof-filled with madness, surprises, and stomach aching humorous situations.

Partition: 1947 -- Attempt to create nostalgia

Suddenly, the flavour of the season as far as filmmaking goes, seems to be India and its history, distant as well as recent.

Toilet -- Ek Prem Katha may spring a surprise

Unlikely as it may seem, Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha may be on its way to spring a surprise at the box office. In fact, the process started from day two after its release as the film’s collections took huge jump on Saturday followed by another leap on Sunday.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha ... Part fun, part sermon

With little choice of genres left for films after themes like family social, horror and mythology were taken away by TV channels, filmmakers have to find variations in what they are left with: romance, action and comedy.

Film audience rues being taken for granted: stars & others' poor show this week

*What Shah Rukh Khan and director Imtiaz Ali have done with Jab Harry Met Sejal can be called a patch-up job. The distributors may lose money but what Shah Rukh Khan has lost in this one weekend is his 25 years of stardom and goodwill.

Jab Harry Met Sejal......they go bankrupt -- creatively

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a road movie where romance happens on the way. There have been some films on this theme like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and Jab We Met in the romantic- fun category while Dhanak was a beautiful film about two kids.

Word of mouth may help family entertainer

Mubarakan came as a full family entertainer after a long gap, a gap when fillers and mediocre films reigned. However, the film’s opening day collections were poor to put it plainly. To a certain extent, the promotion and the presentation of the film were not quite attractive.

RaagDesh has been backed by RajyaSabha Television which, in itself, is quite curious!
