Ready for last two years, FROZEN will finally release in theaters on 1st May. Current stand off between producers and multiplexes has resulted in quite a few films coming out of cold storage and FROZEN is one of them.
Starring Danny Denzongpa in the lead who plays the role of 'Karma', the film depicts the life of a family whose dream like existence is interrupted by inevitable odds, one after the other. Made in Hindi and Ladakhi, the film was shot at an average height of 12000 feet above sea level in Ladakh, the eastern part of Jammu and Kashmir, bordering China.
Produced and directed by Shivajee Chandrabhushan, the film has received 18 highly acclaimed awards. Not just that, it has also toured 30 international film festivals over the period of time and would now be seeing a release in India. Interestingly, the film would be seeing a staggered release. While in Mumbai the film will be screened beginning 1st May, in other cities it would arrive on later dates.
After a few forgettable outings in films like KARZZZZ, CHAMKU and BIG BROTHER, one hopes that Danny has sunk his teeth into something really worthwhile in FROZEN where he plays a central protagonist. Some of the other films in which Danny would be seen in months to come are ACID FACTORY, TEEN PATTI and LUCK.
Coming back to FROZEN, the film also stars Shilpa Shukla of CHAK DE INDIA fame. Others in the case comprise of Yashpal Sharma, Raj Zutshi, Aamir Bashir, Shakeel Khan and Denzil Smith.
