SUNNY IN NEWS
Ever since Sunny Deol’s Mohalla Assi trailer leaked online we had been waiting for somebody to take some kind of a legal action against the movie. The indiscriminate use of abuses seems to have attracted the displeasure of an organization named Sarvajan Jagruti Sanstha. The members of the organization have filed an FIR in Varanasi against Sunny Deol and Mohalla Assi’s director Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi. The members are opposing the film not only on ethical grounds but they also believe that it portrays Varanasi in a negative light. In his defense, Dwivedi has claimed that the trailer which has been leaked is not the official one. He has alleged that it has been purposely edited in a way which shows as if the film is all about abuses. Mohalla Assi is based on a book by Hindi write Kashi Nath Singh and takes a satirical look at the lives of middle class individuals living in Varanasi’s Assi ghat area.The film shows Sunny in a very different role and has been long overdue.
Preity Zinta will make yet another comeback in Bollywood with Bhaiyyaji Superhitt. Apparently, the actress who is currently involved in a legal battle with Ness Wadia, will be seen playing a typical bandit in the film. Director Neeraj Pathak revealed the following about Preity’s role, “Preity plays a Uttar Pradeshwali. Her character is a gangster's daughter and a no-nonsense UP gangster herself who is also Sunny Deol's wife.” He added, “Preity's interpretation of the firebrand wife's character is bang-on. She will not be seen as an actor suited only for urbane sophisticated roles after Bhaiyyaji Superhitt.” We hear that Sunny is also interested in doing the remake of Sohni Mahiwal with his son playing the lead. Apparently, Preity’s performance in Bhaiyyaji Superhitt impressed Sunny Deol so much that he wants her to play the role of Sohni’s mother in the film. Bhaiyyaji Superhitt is nearing completion and stars Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Mithun Chakraborty, Prakash Raj and Shreyas Talpade.
Sunny Deol and director Anil Sharma have been a winning combination for three films so far- Gadar, The Hero: Love Story of a Spy and Apne. This time they’re back with a bang with Singh Saab The Great (SSTG) where Sunny reprises the role of an honest and upright Collector Saranjit Singh Talwar and his attempts to bring about a change in society. The motto of the movie is “Badla Nahin, Badlav” and the story is about a simple man, who has immense pride in his honesty, finds joy in little day to day things, is driven by love for his family and believes in always doing what is morally correct. This however leads to clashes with the unsavory Bhoodev Singh (Prakash Raj), ultimately leading to the point where Saranjit is unfairly accused of bribery. Saranjit decides to fight this injustice and also corruption at large but not by taking revenge but by trying to bring about a change in society at large because he believes greatness is in forgiveness and not revenge. Sing Saab The Great is choc-a-block with action, drama, humour, romance, emotions that manages to strike a chord with the audience. Its strength lies in the fact that it not only relates to today’s corrupt times but shows a way out. It gives a very apt message of Change not Revenge. SSTG has some gripping and thunderous dialogues which should in the coming days, become a trend with the audience . There’s that killer punchline: “Lekin tum sab ke liye toh mera haath hi kaafi hai.” And of course “Sardar jab dushman ko pakad leta hai na, toh uski hadiyaan thadthadaane lagti hain…thad… thad… thad..” Now the baddies are gonna be toast and you will rejoice and cheer for the protagonist Saranjit. Sunny Deol gives yet another power-packed performance, leaving you speechless with the range of emotions he showcases just with his eyes. SSTG is wholly and solely his as he makes the character his own with poignant sincerity. There never is and never will be another action star like him, when he clobbers the baddies, it is real, it is believable. Newbie Urvashi Rautela is a refreshing change and shows promise. Amrita Rao gives a credible performance. Prakash Raj has honed the talent of portraying evil. Anjali Abrol and the rest of the cast turn in a good show. Director Anil Sharma is a master in the genre of action and drama and this time too succeeds in entertaining the audience. Music by Anand Raj Anand and Sonu Nigam weaves itself into the plot, lending itself to the storyline. Action by Tinnu Verma and Kanal Kannan is stupendous and high-adrenalin, fitting in very well with the narrative. With Singh Saab The Great we are once again treated to the fabulous pairing of Sunny Deol and Anil Sharma. The duo has given us super hits before and the 4 star Singh Saab The Great seems to be another winner on their hands.
Now this one marks the comeback of the Sunny Deol – Anil Sharma team who has given us the blockbuster ‘Gadar – Ek Prem Katha’ followed by ‘The Hero – Love Story of a Spy’ and ‘Apne’ in the past.
Will director Anil Sharma succeed once again in a film which brings back Sunny in his original angry man avatar ?.
Our in-house expert and ace astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts the fate of this action drama:
“The title ‘SINGH SAAB THE GREAT’is adding up to Number 53 – this octave of Number 8(Saturn) is one of the most unluckiest numbers as it indicates gravest warnings for the future and foreshadows disasters brought about by association with others; ruin by speculations, partnerships, unions and bad advice. If it comes out in connection with future events, one should carefully consider the path one is treading” explains Bhavikk.
“As per the numerological meaning derived, it seems the duo will miss the target this time and may not be able to match up to the expectations of the paying public. At best, it may just appeal to hardcore Sunny Deol fans in mass dominated areas of smaller centres especially in North India” predicts Bhavikk.
“Also, like in all Sunny Deol films, he more often dominates the screen from start to end and so his personal luck is very important to make it run at the box office. Alas, Sunny’s (19th October 1957) ‘stars’ in his 57th year are not in form and hence the fate of the film will suffer as a result of that”.
“In short, this Singh Saab will do no great business at the box office” ends Bhavikk on a clear note.

Ghayal 2’s fate seems just as wounded as the leading man’s luck. The poor reception to Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 seems to have hampered Sunny’s chances of starring in the Ghayal sequel. Of course, the box office flop could have been the last straw in the series of false starts to the project. The teaser of the 1990s cult film sequel was shown at Salman Khan’s Ready screening in 2010. Tigmanshu Dhulia, Gangs of Wasseypur’s Ramadhir Singh and director of Paan Singh Tomar was supposedly roped in to direct Ghayal 2. Jodi Breakers director Ashwini Chaudhary was said to have replaced him, followed by Betaab director Rahul Rawail and then director of the original Ghayal, Rajkumar Santoshi. Piyush Mishra, actor-writer, who also starred in the Wasseypur series, was said to be writing the screenplay and dialogue for the sequel but backed out. It seems Viacom 18 is mirroring the sentiment and is withdrawing their name from the film. The delay in the film’s making, apparently, exceeded their patience. That, and also the fact that Sunny Deol’s latest release did not perform up to the mark at the box office. When it rains, it pours. The Punjab da puttar must know that only too well now, with Viacom 18 serving him a notice to return his signing amount. Whether or not he obliges will depend on how eager he is for another hit in his kitty, since Ghayal 2, no doubt, could garner eyeballs as headlines (and even box office returns) if made!
