Bollywood is almost back on track following the success of last week"s release Housefull. Now, the big question is – will this week"s release Badmaash Company pull the film industry completely out of the dark zone? This big film from big banner Yash Raj Films could bring hope to Bollywood. It features Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Meiyeng Chang and Vir Das in the lead roles.
Badmassh Company literally means Rogue Company. It is all about four ordinary guys who start a business with a dream of earning quick big bucks. They beat all odds and become rich overnight by doing wrong things the right way. They bring to light that all one needs to succeed in business is not money but big idea.
The film has been in the news for many reasons. The highlight of the film is the kiss between the lead pair Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. It"s rumoured that they are more than just friends. We don"t know if they are seeing each other but people just can"t stop talking about their chemistry ever since its trailer hit Youtube on March 23.
The fact that Yash Raj Films is behind Badmaash Company is big news. But the banner badly needs a big hit following the debacle of its recent films. Lead actor Shahid Kapoor also needs this film to click to stay in demand. His releases after Kaminey failed at the box office and the recent release Paathshaala too was not a hit though it"s said to have recovered its cost. The film is a test for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi star Anushka Sharma too.
The hype around this film produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Parmeet Sethi has been good but we can"t count the chickens before it is hatched, right? Well, the final verdict will be out tomorrow (May 7).
