Saif Ali Khan's last production venture under his banner Illuminati Films', AGENT VINOD, failed to appeal to the audience in a big way. The Sriram Raghvan directed spy thriller (which was much ahead of its time), was definitely appreciated by a section of the audience (read elite and intellectual) but was not fully understood and patronized by the masses. The spy action thriller did not have much scope for romance and the public missed a sparkling chemistry between reel life (as well as real life) couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
In fact when the film was announced there was a hot debate whether Saif-Raghvan should have gone in for Deepika Padukone as the Saif-Deepika 'jodi' was fresh and superhot from the super success of their last venture, LOVE AAJ KAL. A section of the media even went to the extent of blaming Kareena for putting pressure on Saif-Raghvan not to sign Deepika and instead choose her for the role.
However, we know that this is all rubbish as Deepika was never considered for the role and Kareena was the demand of the script and justifiably so! No one could have essayed the role of a Pakistani spy agent-cum-doctor as effectively as Kareena.
That is all history as all eyes are now focussed on Illuminati Film's next, COCKTAIL, directed by Homi Adajania (of BEING CYRUS fame). The first look and song promo of COCKTAIL has grabbed all attention. The 'Tum Hi Ho Bandhu' song by Neeraj Sridhar looks like a sure fire chartbuster. The Saif-Deepika pair is looking very cool together and one can sense a vibrant chemistry between the two from the song promo itself.
One expects the youth to relate to this Imtiaz Ali written chilled out romantic fare! With Homi Adajania at the helm of affairs we can expect some out of the box thinking and an exciting film looks like in store for the audience when the film releases on 13th July all over.
