Reliance Big Pictures to release three films in August


MUMBAI: Reliance Big Pictures will release three Hollywood films this August. This includes Dinner for Schmucks on 6 August and Aashayein along with Chak Jawana (Punjabi) on 27 August.


Directed by Jay Roach, Dinner For Schmucks tells the story of Tim (Paul Rudd), a guy who is on the verge of having it all. The only thing standing between him and his total career success is finding the perfect guest to bring to his boss‘ annual Dinner for Extraordinary People - an event where the winner of the evening brings the most eccentric character as his guest. 


Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, Aashayein is the story of Rahul Singh, a compulsive gambler who has never picked the right horse. Then one day when he risks everything he has, the winning horse comes in making him incredibly wealthy. The same evening while celebrating his new life, he proposes to his girlfriend Nafisa, and suddenly collapses. A diagnosis reveals that he has an incurable cancer that has already reached its final stage. He is told that he has 90 days to live.


Faced with the realization that death is inevitable and filled with anger at the rotten hand fate has dealt him, he runs away from his home and fiancee to a hospice - a beautiful resort like facility where terminally ill patients go to die with dignity.


Chak Jawana, directed by Simerjit Singh, highlights the problems faced by youth in a Punjabi village. The young men fall prey to drugs, become irresponsible and disturb the peace.The elders despair about the future of the community. Captain Gurjeet Singh (Gurdas Maan) arrives on a month‘s home leave from the Indian Navy. He pledges to reform the youth and helps them overcome their weakness.
