Oh this is exciting! Big big money, like record breaking money. And for a female lead picture. A very raunchy adult female lead picture. Oh, and also Carry On Jatta 2, but that was a forgone conclusion. (as always, figures from renttrack by way of bollywoodhungama)
Happy Monday! I made it through my weird weekend, with a nice solid “I am just sitting here reading” 6 hours in the middle. And therefore, I am behind schedule again and Monday Malayalam will be on Wednesday or something. Oh well, at least I managed to scrabble out reviews for both of the new movies.
I already put up the No Spoilers review. I’m not necessarily going to direct you to it instead of this one. This is a very good movie, and has some plot surprises built in. But it is also a very angry movie, so I am essentially giving you a “trigger” warning. If you are someone (like myself) who sometimes finds yourself crying with rage at political ads, this is not a healthy movie for you to watch. Instead, read my summary so you have an educated understanding of what this film is.
I watched it last night instead of Veere Di Wedding, contributing a whole $12 to the (almost certainly) very very low box office take. I did my bit though! Contributed to unique and unexpected art.
