This week’s prominent release is John Abraham’s PARMANU-THE STORY OF POKHRAN. The film is expected to take a decent start, keeping in mind the holiday season and curiosity aroused due to the trailers. The other venture, Danny Denzongpa’s BIOSCOPEWALA, an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s KABULIWALA ( the 1961 classic starring Balraj Sahani was a big hit) will find limited appeal amongst class audience of high end multiplexes of big cities and metros.
