Once titled ‘hitman’ Hashmi due to his superb success record, actor Emraan Hashmi has been searching for that elusive hit for almost three years now. To be precise, his last big hit was RAAZ 3 which released in September 2012.
In fact since RAAZ 3, Emraan Hashmi has had some very promising films like SHANGHAI, EK THI DAAYAN, GHANCHAKKAR, etc flopping at the ticket window. Even his Dharma Productions outing UNGLI failed to cut much ice, and the case was similar with his home banner venture (Vishesh Films), MR X which despite the much touted SFX tanked. In all the cases, the hit music which was always associated with Emraan Hashmi films (and which earned him our title, music’s lucky mascot) was clearly missing.
To cut a long story short, all eyes and hopes now rest on the golden boy Mohit Suri (Emraan’s friend and cousin) to rejuvenate Emraan Hashmi’s career and provide him with a hit through Fox’s HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI. Mohit’s track record of late is simply outstanding with back-to-back blockbuster hits like AASHIQUI 2 and EK VILLAIN and together the director-actor duo have crafted out big hits like ZEHER, RAAZ THE MYSTERY CONTINUES and MURDER 2.
Even though (unfortunately!) the music of HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI is not up-to the standard that one expects from a Vishesh and Mohit Suri film, yet his strong script sense and the fact that talented actress Vidya Balan is making a comeback (after BOBBY JASOOS) makes one look forward to HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI, which releases all over on 12th June 2015.
