The much-talked about mega-budget action-packed thriller Race 2 is coming out this Friday alongside small romantic film Akaash Vani. If they don’t whet your appetite, you can choose 3D-animation film Main Krishna Hoon to satiate your cravings for movies.
Sequel to the 2008 film, Race, Abbas-Mustan directed Race 2, a sleek action film, is set in the exotic locales in Europe, with the backdrop of casinos and gambling. The thriller that takes the legacy of Race forward claims to be an edge-of-the-seat drama with high octane action, combined with twists that will take audiences on adventure-filled roller coaster ride.
In part two, Anil Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan reprise their roles as Robert D’Costa and Ranveer Singh respectively from the previous film, while Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel are new additions to the cast. Actress Bipasha Basu will reprise her role of Sonia in a special appearance in the film.
After the action and thrill of Race 2, next on the list is director Luv Ranjan’s romantic offering – Akaash Vani, about two youngsters – Akaash, played by Kartik Tiwari, and Vani, played by Nushrat Bharucha.
Both of them set out on their journey with a common destination – St. Stephen’s College in Delhi University. The moment they meet, their life takes an unusual turn. Vani has a calming affect on Akaash, who in return instills a bit of a rebellious streak in her. In three years, Akaash and Vani become best buddies. But as the college ends, they have to part ways.
The film, produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak under the banner Wide Frame Pictures, is the journey of their struggle to find each other again.
This week the children will have something to look forward too. Main Krishna Hoon, a 3D-animation film featuring actress Juhi Chawla, who plays Kantaben in it, is coming out too.
In the film, Juhi runs an orphanage. She is impressed by a boy who arrives at the orphanage, braving the rain and the flood. His perseverance inspires her to name him as boy Krishna. He is unhappy being alone in an orphanage and has a health disorder. To wipe away his tears and entertain the other children, Kantaben tells them inspiring stories about the naughty and loveable Lord Krishna.
The film, directed by Rajiv S. Ruia, also has Katrina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan and Rajneesh Duggal in cameos.
