Common man is certainly in, especially if one looks at the way ROCK ON, WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR and A WEDNESDAY have worked at the box office. Now add another film to the ever growing list with the release of OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE round the corner where Abhay Deol and Neetu Chandra play one of the many common people who we see around us.

"Dibakar Banerjee, director of the film, is very clear about what he wants", says Neetu Chandra, "His narration too is about common man and hence the world shown in OLLO is the kind that you can relate to. When you watch the film, you would end up saying – 'Aisa mere ghar mein bhi hota hai', 'Aisa maine uske yahan dekha hai', 'Mera friend aise hi karta hai', 'School mein saare ladke aise hi behave karte hain'!"

Seems like quite a real film in the offering?

"Exactly", reaffirms Neetu, "OLLO is sheer reality. The film itself is based on a real story and since Dibakar himself has seen Delhi's Punjabi culture so closely, it reflects in his work. The whole film has a Punjabi ambience to it where smallest nuances have been captured so well. Even the name of the film is quite unique which speaks so well about how the director must have gone into the details of how people are addressed up North. Dibakar is indeed quite creative and intelligent."

How did she go about playing a Punjabi character?

''I won't bluff that it was the hardest thing to do'', says Neetu honestly, ''It was easy in fact since I didn't have to change my way of talking much. Moreover, I have lot of Punjabi friends from school time and hence I could put a finer touch or two at certain points and make my character work.''
