The Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif starrer "Bang Bang" has already generated more buzz than what the makers were aiming at. With several records in its kitty, the film is well on its way to become a box-office hit. Apart from the smouldering pair, there are several other factors which have helped made the film bigger and better.
Firstly, the Siddharth Anand directorial will see the two good-looking actors coming together after their brief on-screen stint in Zoya Akhtar's "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara". Cashing in on the crackling chemistry and popularity the two hold, the director has cleverly cast his lead pair.
Since the shoot began, at a time when Roshan was dealing relationship troubles with Sussane Khan - wife of 13 years , there were reports that the actor used to often confide in co-star Kaif. Well, looks like the off-screen rapport has rubbed off well on the reel life, making the sneak-peeks of the film look fantastic.
The other aspect, which will work in its favour for sure, is the high-octane action sequences. The minute-long teaser, chronicling all of Rajveer Nanda (Roshan) and Harleen Sahni's (Kaif) adventures, has left viewers wanting for more.
According to recent reports, a Formula One car was hired for one of its chases and Anand apparently pointed out that it was one of the firsts in Bollywood. "It is the best adrenaline rush I've ever experienced. And to experience it amidst the visually stunning and smooth road ways of Abu Dhabi was just incredible. What a rush," Roshan narrated his experience to Times of India.
Also, a unique water action sequence was shot in Phuket. Reports suggest, Roshan had to use a water jetpack (known as Fly board) to soar 45-feet above water level and dive down. The makers have apparently pointed out that Roshan is the first Bollywood actor to have pulled off such a dangerous stunt.
Assuring that none of the stunts or chases have been re-jigged from its Hollywood version "Knight and Day", the director told TOI, "Even if you see that film a day before our film, you won't be able to find any references or be able to draw any parallels."
Another reason why "Bang Bang" is a potential box-office winner is its music. Composed by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravijani, the recently released numbers -"Tu Meri" and "Meherbaan" – have already gone viral. While one of the songs show the lead pair exude charm and flaunt incredible dance moves, the romantic number has them share a few intimate moments against the backdrop of the exotic Greece. Also, the to-release song video will reportedly feature Michael Jackson's moves but not the trademark moonwalk.
Shot extensively in Kashmir, Thailand and Greece, a picture-perfect and easy-on-the-eye cinematography is being speculated.
Slated for a 2 October release, the high-on-action flick will feature Danny Denzongpa and Jaaved Jaffrey in key roles.
