Excel Films is known for pushing the envelope with every film of theirs. Whether it is DIL CHAHTA HAI, LAKSHYA, DON - THE CHASE BEGINS AGAIN, HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD. or recently release ROCK ON. Now Zoya Akhtar is the newest entry to the film making family in the capacity of the director as she gets ready to unveil her LUCK BY CHANCE. Does her film carry forward the tradition?
''Absolutely'', Zoya is prompt in her reply, ''I think it is very clear film from Excel family. We know where we stand, what are the kinds of films expected out of us and we also understand our audience. It is our kind of subject and our kind of treatment, whether it is to do with story, cast or crew.''
Just like ROCK ON that has music, drama as well light hearted moments all merged in, is LUCK BY CHANCE too a complete package affair?
''I would call it more of a drama'', Zoya talks about the film's genre here, ''It is a film about people and human behaviour. It is a film that brings to fore the kind of people who could exist anywhere. As for how it ends, I don't think it is at all right from my part to talk about it before the release. A lot of people keep asking me if it's a happy or sad ending but that's the entire idea about putting your promos. Audience should keep the guessing game on and be prepared for any eventualities when entering the auditorium.'' - view LUCK BY CHANCE movie stills
