Chandni Chowk To China has disappointed, Nikhil has announced that he will

My “Gut Feel” and
To be honest I am in dilemma after watching the trailer of the
I had watched the promo over and over again in last two days,
watched the interview of lead stars and director to read between the lines and
make out the distinction of this movie from being an average 2.5 stars to a
decent 3 stars out of 5.
I found its trailer being
intelligently edited and presented which is good enough to create curiosity with
urban multiplex audience. Imran is looking conventional however Kangana is
looking fresh and vibrant, overall a good paring.
Going by the screen play this movie seems to hold few
entertaining moments for audience however I am in doubt that it would be able
to maintain the excitement among the audiences throughout the movie.
Nikhil’s last week’s release “Hero” despite being a below average movie, managed to recover the
cost of production because of low budget and extensive promotions backing from
Salman’s production house. Budget of “Katti
Batti” is also moderate around 28 crore, running time is 2 hours 15 minutes
which is good and on top of it Kangana’s presence will surely increase the
chance of movie doing decent run at box office.
As far as allocating
stars to this movie goes, I am not sure of giving it 2.5 stars or 3 however
going with my gut feel I am sticking to 2.5 stars out of 5 stars, one day
before the release.
