Karan Anshuman's "Bangistan" will be an interesting film and there are a few factors that are working in its favour. The factors are as follows:
The Riteish Deshmukh-Pulkit Samrat Connection
They have been promoting the satire film for some time now and the two seem to share a comfortable off-screen rapport, which is sure to translate on the big screen as well. In the trailer, their comic timing seems easy and natural.
Talking about Pulkit, the slightly senior actor told India Today, "His take on acting is different and his reactions are completely different. There is no better joy for an actor than to get to work with good actors. A good one makes you better, makes the scene better. That was the joy of working with Pulkit."
Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar are known to invest in films with substance. And so far, they have not been wrong in their decisions. Excel Entertainment has offered coming-of-age films to cine-goers right from its "Dil Chahta Hai" days, barring a few duds here and there.
Satire at its Best
In the flick, the lead pair plays terrorists with skewed ideas on world peace. If executed correctly, this could make for an interesting watch. Talking about the film, Riteish said the humour isn't the in-your-face type and doesn't cater to the masses.
The popular word, "Bangistan", is now an indelible part of this film. "Bangistan" has been banned in Pakistan and the UAE. Sidhwani, who is disappointed at the film being banned in the two countries, said the makers will be sending it to the re-examining committee.
The quirky avatars
The actors have sported varied avatars and so far, the looks have managed to pique an interest in people.
