Farah Khan is hoping to capture the nuances of Indian youth
Young and spirited choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan is hoping to capture the nuances of Indian youth in her debut film "Main Hoon Na" that stars Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen, Suniel Shetty, Zayed Khan and Amrita Rao.
The film with at a budget of over Rs.200 million is a "back-to-school" teenybopper story with a generous peppering of patriotism. Reports say the film has been sold to distributors with a tag in excess of Rs.40 million in prime circuits like Mumbai and Delhi-UP.
Only time will tell whether "Main Hoon Na" is able to portray today's urban teens who are more caught up in a rigid educational system and rapidly changing social norms, grappling with the generation gap, peer pressure, sexual doubts, and a whole youth subculture than with chasing girls and losing their virginity.
It remains to been seen if this choreographer succeeds where her colleague V. Tharun Kumar failed with the comedy "Nayee Padosan" last year. Her success will pave the way for another colleague -- Ahmed Khan -- whose directorial skills will be put to the test in his debut film "Lakeer".
"Lakeer" is a Sunny Deol-Suniel Shetty-starrer that also has John Abraham and Sohail Khan in important roles. The fact that the film is packaged as a macho film could be the reason why its release dates have been shifting for the last two months.
Marketing observers say the film's youth quotient should have been highlighted as school and college vacations are around the corner. Nonetheless if the youngsters shine brighter than the seasoned stars in the film, then Bollywood would have its next youth stars.
