I was going to! I set up a time to pick up a friend, I checked the showtimes, I was all set. And then at the last minute, I couldn’t go. For an interesting reason!
Well, I think it’s interesting! On Thursday I checked the showtimes, it was at 2 theaters I could get to, and I picked the one I liked better and found a showtime I liked and texted my friend, and we were all set! And then on Friday I checked again just to confirm, and no showtimes! Out of the 5 theaters in my area that usually show Indian movies, suddenly it was only at 2 of them, the 2 that are really really far away (2 hours on the expressway). What happened?!?!?!?
Well, I know what happened with me, my friend and I just met up at a sweet shop instead and talked and I ate 5 ladoos (but they had nuts on top, so it was healthy!). Worked out great, plus we stopped at the DVD store on the way home and I picked up Dhanak and the new Rekha biography. One of them is sweet and soothing and restores your faith in humanity. The other looks juicy and nasty and scandalous. A perfect combination!
But what happened to Force 2? Here’s my guess. Remember a while back it came out in the media that Dear Zindagi was releasing two days early in America? So it would come out before Thanksgiving? I’m guessing the filmmakers remembered to tell the media, and tweet it to the fans, but completely forgot to mention it to the North American distributors until the last minute. So now the 3 theaters near me that were going to show Force 2 are scrambling, because they don’t want to tie up the screens if they need to bring out Dear Zindagi just 5 days later.
At least, that’s my hope. Because according to their websites, they still have Dear Zindagi with a 11/25 release date. So hopefully that is just because they are only now learning that Dear Zindagi really has an 11/23 release date.
