Mithun Chakraborty has a double bill now
A few days back Mimoh Chakraborty finally had a release to his name in the form of JIMMY. The film has turned out to be a colossal flop and is best forgotten by everyone associated with it. However, there is hardly much time for the family to sit back and introspect on the pathetic show of Mimoh's launch-pad since weeks to follow would see as many as two films starring Mithun Chakraborty in the lead.
While coming Friday i.e. 23rd May would see Mithun do his AGNEEPATH South Indian act once again in DON MUTHUSWAMI, a week later would see the veteran actor in a mature love story ZINDAGI TERE NAAM. Coming with a tag line of 'Behind every great story is a love story', the film's USP lies in the pairing of Mithun and Ranjeeta who were once a hot couple in the early 80s.
Common factor between both the films though is near to negligible promotion which has resulted in zero hype or buzz. Though each of the two films is set on a meager budget, the way they are being brought to the theaters is nothing less than being suicidal. Worse, they are coming on the weeks when there are as many as 2-3 other releases happening in parallel.
Now it has to be seen which of the three films would turn out to be a better box office grosser - DON MUTHUSWAMI, ZINDAGI TERE NAAM or perhaps JIMMY!
