The film is about Aladin Chatterjee, an orphan, who has been used by Kasim and his gang since childhood. However, his life takes a U-turn after Jasmine gives him a magic lamp, as it let loose the genie Genius. To grant him three wishes and end his contract with the magic lamp, Genius makes Aladin"s life miserable until the real threat Ringmaster, the ex-genie, comes to light. The rest of the film is about the destiny of Aladin.
Riteish plays the title role of Aladin, whereas Amitabh plays Genius. Sanjay Dutt plays the Ringmaster and Jacqueline plays Jasmine.
One of the highlights of the film is the star cast. It will be a delight to see big names like Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt together on the big screen. It also has Riteish, who has earned a place in comedy flicks.
Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez is certainly one of the highlights of the film. It"s her debut film in Bollywood but she has become a familiar name in the film circuit. Amitabh has praised her for her commitment and talent. She has got a dream break, and her prospect in Bollywood will very much depend on the fate of this film at the box-office.
This film from Eros International and Boundscript Production is directed by Sujoy Ghosh and is set for release tomorrow, 30th October.
