    Any first time director would be having sleepless night before the release of his/her movie. But not Reema Kagti!

    "People are amused when I tell them I have been sleeping well", laughs 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd' director, "In fact so many people associated with the film, including Ritesh Sidhwani (film's co-producer), tell me that they haven't enjoyed their proper sleep, especially in last one week."

    But that shouldn't be the case. After all Ritesh and Farhan know how the box office turns. "Ritesh is like that only. This is a trend for him before the release of each of the film," says Reema.

    Seriously speaking, what are the kind of expectations she has from the film. "To be honest, at the moment I am just looking forward to gauging audience's reaction to the film", informs Reema, "There have been number of private screenings, yes, but I won't really call those a barometer to how the movie turns. Positive reactions have come from each of these screenings but then you don't really expect someone to come and tell you on your face that your film sucked! The good part though was that people were laughing at the right time at the right jokes, so I take that positively."

    She for sure would be confident though of how the movie has shaped up, isn't that so? "Well, I have been with the movie for so many months now and have had my share of anxiety and reactions", says Reema in a serious tone, "The film's shooting was completed early last year and since then I have been into post production, publicity etc. so at the moment I don't have any reactions at all."

    Talking about publicity, it is something that has really stood out, especially during last 4 weeks. "Yes, that's true, and that was always a strategy. The idea was to be intense though being small. I guess that has worked out for the film. Even in UK, I hear good buzz for the film and now even the print count has been increased over there," says Reema.

    So what's the current count in overseas and India? "Don't ask me", she laughs, "since I don't know that frankly. Ritesh told me that you have done your job so chill out now and let me do my job. Knowing him and Farhan, I trust that they certainly know their job!"

    With the film's promos working well and the target age group of 20-30 giving positive vibes before the release of the film, what kind of opening is she expecting the film to take? "Well, let's be practical, I don't see a thunderous start to the film", she says honestly, "My film doesn't have that star-star factor in it and hence a decent start would be good enough for a boost. A film like this works a lot on word of mouth and hence it only makes sense to study the film's progress by next Tuesday/Wednesday to know how the film would fare in the final run."
