After making Lakeer Ahmed Khan sits on the director's seat again but this time, he is back with a comedy. Talking about his upcoming film Fool and Final, Ahmed says, "The film is comedy, which is clear from the title. It is about a group of people to finish something but do it foolishly. There are three parallel stories running through the film. There is also a one funny part that shows Indian Dons in Dubai and the manner in which they talk. The different accents in which people from different parts of India speak is also funnily shown."
Interestingly, the entire promotion of the film is done like a comic book. Says Ahmed Khan "Everything starting from the posters, the hoardings, the brochures, the promos etc. will be designed like comic books. In fact, the theatrical promo of the film will be the costliest film promo to be made till date in Bollywood with the expenditure of 40 lakhs."
The film is going to be presented in a very innovative style. "This is the first time that something like this will be done in India" says Ahmed excitedly. "When the audiences see the film, they will get the feeling as if they are reading a comic book. Even when the film begins, it seems like you are reading a comic book. The editing is also done in a unique manner, as if you are turning to next page after the scene." It is an interesting way of presenting a comic film. But that's not all. "The background score is also funny with sounds like "Yahuu!" being added in the film. Also, the thought bubbles appear above the characters head at times, with text in them, just like in comic books."
Besides, all these innovative ideas, what seemed extremely hatke to us were the names of some of the characters in this film. In this film, Arbaaz Khan is called Moscow Chikna, Paresh Rawal is Chatur Chaubhey, Jackie Shoff is Gunmaster-G9, Johny Lever is Pattu Pilate and Vijay Raaz is Abdul Tikki.
Looking at the starcast and the innovative ideas that are packed in this film, Fool and Final which is releasing in January next year is definitely a film to look forward to.
