It has been quite a while since one saw a full-on Bollywood action movie on the big screen. The wait would finally be over with Anubhav Sinha directed Cash that stars original action star Ajay Devgan along with Suneil Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh and Zayed Khan.
But it now appears that the wait would be a little longer as the film has been moved to June 29th after being originally slated for a May 11 release. Is that true? "Yes, indeed it is", says the man on the hot seat - Anubhav Sinha, "and we have absolutely no qualms that this is happening".
And why is that so? "Since it is only benefiting the film", says Anubhav, "There is something that I am toying to do with the film that would make it a unique cinematic experience."
Coming from someone who has made Dus, one tends to believes so. But then what exactly is the unique factor that he trying to introduce in the film? "We are working on something in the post production that would change the entire narration mode of the film. It would come with never-seen-before kind of visuals!"
Never seen before? Is he talking that just from Bollywood or even Hollywood film making point of view? "Both", he says confidently, "At least I haven't seen anything like this in any movie so far."
With a huge repertoire of music videos and 4 films behind him [Tum Bin, Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai, Dus and Tathastu], one is sure that the man knows what he is saying. But doesn't he feel like breaking the suspense now about what this new format is all about?
"See, the more I talk about it, the more you may feel a little lost about what it exactly is. It is not something that can be merely explained in words and has to be seen to believe. What I can assure though is that you won't be disappointed at all", he reassures.
Agreed. But didn't he face any difficulties from the people behind the film since it was originally slated to arrive a few months back? "Well, that never was the case", confirms Sinha, "The film's principal shoot was done in the last quarter of 2006 and it was always the idea to invest in the film's post production since a genre that Cash belongs to requires an extra attention. My commitment was to bring the film before June ends and with June 29th being the date that we have closed upon, we are very much meeting the target."
