PHOONK 2 and PAATHSHAALA
Two fresh and promising directors of the Hindi film industry, Milind Gadagkar and Milind Ukey have a lot in common. And it's just not their first name. Both the Milinds are Maharashtrians and are well read having a degree in none less than engineering and of course, one that is obvious to all, both have a passion for cinema.
Milind Gagadgar has proved his worth with PHOONK, under the banner of Ramgopal Varma while Mlind Ukey too has proved his credentials via successful Marathi films. This Friday sees both of them slog it out as PAATHSHAALA, which is Milind's Ukey's first Hindi film, is all set to release alongside the much hyped horror flick PHOONK 2.
Call it co-incidence (with PAATSHAALA being delayed), but both the films are set to release simultaneously and so it will be an interesting clash. Despite the two films belonging to two different genres it will definitely be a tough task for them to beat the now climaxing IPL fever with the semi finals approaching soon and so the two will have to fight hard for the audience attention.
However both Milind Ukey and Milind Gadagkar are pretty confident that their films will succeed and we too are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that they give the success starved Bollywood a double hit, and something to rejoice after ISHQIYA, MY NAME IS KHAN, ATITHI TUM KAB JAOGE? and LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA!
