Since ‘utkal baba’ has not blessed Tanqeed yet and our in-house ‘Baba ji’ is busy bashing SRK, I thought I will take the baton of coming up with the prophecies 🙂 😛
Now coming to the topic, I am sticking my neck out and predicting Shanghai will be one of the best films of 2012.
Dibakar Banerjee as a director is supremely talented. Khosla ka Ghosla remains of my favorites from the last decade.
Trust him to come up with something unexpected!
I believe Emraan Hashmi will steal the show… I am of the opinion that this guy knows to act and is not just a serial kisser. I think this movie might be a game-changer for Emraan Hashmi.
The music is a little downer… I sincerely hope that they don’t pack in too many songs for commercial reasons.
About BO… it will not have any great opening. But in today’s times, when movies like Vicky Donor and Kahaani can rake in so much moolah, I don’t see any reason why this movie should not if it meets expectations. Right now, Rowdy Rathore is a juggernaut but that is mostly in single screens. I believe Shanghai will get enough screen space in multiplexes for it to breathe and then flourish if it is liked. Anything more than 40 crores will be an achievement.
Last but not the least, I hope the Indian junta has the mindset to enjoy a political satire.
Best of luck to the entire team of Shanghai…rock it guyz!Tags: Abhay Deol Dibakar Banerjee Emraan Hashmi Kalki Koechlin Predictions Shanghai
