Abhay Deol doesn't deny the fact that his recent release ROAD, MOVIE is quite experimental. Still, he is quite pleased though with the response that the film is fetching internationally. "We have been to some really major festivals and foreign audiences are going gaga over it. There have been awesome reactions all over which has pretty much established Dev's vision of making ROAD, MOVIE as a film which has a universal appeal."

Still, closer home, what kind of vibes he is getting from ROAD, MOVIE? Are they similar to the kind that he got for his last two releases, DEV D and OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE? After all when it comes to commercial parlance, these two films still touched upon mainstream boundaries while ROAD, MOVIE appears a little too experimental.


"Yes, ROAD, MOVIE is indeed a bit more experimental whereas DEV D was actually quite stylish in treatment rather than being experimental", admits Abhay whose name has spelled quality ever since he made his debut with SOCHA NA THA that arrived under the baton of now hot-shot director Imtiaz Ali, "In fact DEV D relied a lot on visuals while OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE had music to elevate its commercial viability. Moreover, since it was a Delhi based film, there was a lot more identification factor involved. Still, when compared to DEV D, it was slightly more niche and edgier. Both films were quite commercial nonetheless."

Meanwhile, Abhay continues to live the philosophy that he has adapted ever since he started working in Bollywood films. "I have maintained that I like to be different with each film of mine. I want to work in films that are non-Bollywood in appeal. Of course, in my attempt to do so, I don't think I can please everyone. But then I am also sure that I won't disappoint anyone either", signs off Abhay with a smile.

Also starring Satish Kaushik, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Mohammed Faisal Usmani, Virendra Saxena and Yashpal Sharma in principal roles, ROAD, MOVIE is produced by Ross Katz & Susan B. Landau and is currently running in theaters.
