He had three hits, which were critically acclaimed in 2013 – Celluloid, Mumbai Police and Memories. But his Bollywood film, Aurangzeb did not create any ripples at the BO.
But he started this year with a colossal flop, London Bridge. It’s all past by now, as his gamble to trust two debutants has paid off and how!
Yes, we are talking about Prithviraj, who is back to winning ways with his Vishu release, 7th Day.
“Two youngsters came to me with a script and I have decided to go for it, as I found it really good,” Prithviraj had told sify.com soon after accepting the film.
7th Day has received appreciation from the masses and also from the critics as well, who feel it’s a decent entertainer.
It is known from well-placed sources that the TV channels were not too keen to buy the film’s satellite rights until the day before the release of the film. And then the rights were sold at a rate below what Prithviraj films usually get. It’s going to be a winner, now with good response at the theatres.
