The much-awaited underwater action-thriller Blue is just 1 hour 57 minutes long. Commenting on the length of his film director Anthony D'Souza said, "We owe it to the audience to not bore them. Blue is long enough to tell its story interestingly, that's it. It is 1 hour 57 minutes of sheer adrenaline rush."
Before flying off with Akshay Kumar to the Abu Dhabi Film Festival on Wednesday morning, Anthony was nervously mixing the Telugu version of Blue. "We decided to do Blue in a dubbed Telugu version because we got a good buyer. Though I'm supervising the mixing, the Telugu dubbing was done independently and the voices are nothing like Mr. Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara, Zayed, etc."
On Monday night, Blue was screened for the first time for the cast and crew at Adlabs. Strangely only Zayed Khan and Kabir Bedi from the cast showed up.
"That's because the rest of the cast was traveling. It was a last-minute decision to screen the film for the crew of Blue," explains Anthony.
With the final running-time of just 1 hour 57 minutes, Blue, featuring a top heavy starcast and an intricate underwater location, is a sure sign of restrain and brevity.
