Baat Bann Gayi comedy on doubles being released with ‘double’ holidays

NEW DELHI: 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.
