It was way back in 2005 when director Isshaan Trivedi's 7 1/2 PHERE had released. Ever since then he has completed two more films, BACHELOR PARTY and SALE UPTO 50%. Moreover, he is ready to kick start his Himesh Reshammiya venture RADIO. He is frustrated though that BACHELOR PARTY, which was expected to release by 2007 end, is yet to see the light of the day.
'The principal shooting of BACHELOR PARTY was wrapped up quite fast. In fact we were all set to arrive on 1st April this year but because of IPL as well as the strike, the film has been further pushed. It is indeed frustrating because the film has shaped up really well and is just the kind of light hearted entertainer that you want to watch in these stressed times', says Isshaan who got some good critical acclaim coming his way with his debut entertainer 7 1/2 PHERE.
Starring Jimmy Sheirgill and Arbaaz Khan in the lead, BACHELOR PARTY features Nauheed Cyrusi and Madhuri Bhattacharya as the leading ladies with Ninad Kamat and Sharat Saxena in supporting roles.
'I could have continued to be frustrated in this endless wait but thankfully first SALE UP TO 50% and now RADIO has come my way. Since I got busy with these two films, I could focus on future rather than delve into the past', he says, 'I hope BACHELOR PARTY releases soon too because recently when I watched the print with 20 odd people, all of them were laughing at just the right points. I guess in this context, the film does solve the purpose of being an enjoyable fare.'
