Karwaan box office prediction: Irrfan Khan’s comedy flick to earn Rs 1.5 crore on Day 1

Mumbai ,  Aug 3 : Irrfan Khan’s  “Karwaan”is one of the three Bollywood releases this Friday  and it is a light-hearted comedy  flick  and might earn Rs 1.5 crore on the first day.

The fans of Irrfan Khan will get to watch him on the silver screen this Friday in Akarsh Khurana’s Karwaan, which is quirky, subtle and sardonic.

 The film has the apt script with South Indian actor Dulquer Salmaan making his debut in Bollywood  and it is also the first film of web sensation Mithila Palkar as a lead actor.

Dulquer is a big star down south, hence he will pull the audience to the theatres in that region.

Trade analyst Girish Johar said, “It might earn Rs 1.5 crore on the first day.”

Tough fight  with three different movies .While  the other two films, Mulk is a courtroom drama and Fanney Khan has hopes and dreams of a father for his daughter at the centre of its narrative,

However, trade analysts have put their money on the Atul Manjrekar directorial for its mass appeal.

Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar have been promoting their film Karwaan in full swing. Meanwhile, actor Irrfan Khan has been missing from action due to his illness. Irrfan who is currently abroad getting treated for neuroendocrine Tumor, a rare breed of cancer.

Film: “Karwaan”; Director: Akarsh Khurana; Cast: Irrfan Khan, Dulquer Salmaan, Akash Khurana, Mithila Palkar, Amala Akkineni, Kriti Kharbanda;

The story of “Karwan”  the main characters leave their home on a road trip, altering their perspective from their everyday lives. They change, grow or improve over the course of their journey.

The story written by Bejoy Nambiar, brings to fore the question as to how much of a story it really offers? While the setup is interesting, the payoffs and character arcs are flat and unimpressive.

This is not a story of hitch-hikers ready to hit the road. But instead, it is the story of a dutiful son Avinash Raj Purohit (Dulquer Salmaan), who ensures that he performs the last rites of his father after his sudden and untimely death in a road accident while on a pilgrimage in North India. Avinash despised his father for not letting him pursue his passion in photography.

Now, reluctantly working in the IT sector and based in Bangalore, Avinash goes to collect his father’s remains from the airport’s cargo section along with his friend Shaukat (Irrfan Khan), who owns a garage. So it is obvious that he gets the vehicle to transport the corpse.

But after collecting the body, they realise that there has been a goof up. So to correct the wrong, Avinash along with Shaukat travel to Kochi to exchange the bodies. En route they pick up Tanya from her college, she is the granddaughter of the dead lady whose body is with Avinash.

Their journey yields enlightenment which contains the trio’s own secrets about life and loss and is peppered with moments sans any major conflict, but yet action-packed, sentimental and hilarious.

The key character who brightens the screen and makes the film momentous is Irrfan Khan. His peculiar one-liners are what keep you in splits. It’s not that his lines are original, but the way he delivers them, the timing et al, is what makes it unique, preposterous and memorable, ensuring a chuckle after every delivery.

Dulquer Salmaan slips into Avinash’s boots with grace and ease. He is the epitome of a good and conscientious boy. Mithila Palkar is natural as the bold and adventurous Tanya.

Amala Akkineni as Tanya’s mother Tahira and Kirti Kharbanda as Avinash’s college friend Rumana, are graceful and they have their moments of on-screen glory.

Visually the film benefits from the fine work of cinematographer Avinash Arun, who bathes the feature and its characters with glossy naturalistic composition.

Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan addressed the trolls who have been commenting on her post about her skin tone. The star kid posted a beautiful photo of herself and then a series of comments she has been receiving from Instagram users calling her ‘kaali’. Before that, Suhana posted a note which read as “For all the people who don’t speak Hindi, I just thought I’d give a bit of context. The word for the colour black in Hindi is ‘Kaala’. The word ‘kaali’ is used to describe a female who is dark-skinned. And it almost never has positive connotations.”

The 20-year-old started by writing, “There’s a lot going on right now and this is one of the issues we need to fix!! this isn’t just about me, it’s about every young girl/boy who has grown up feeling inferior for absolutely no reason. Here are just a few of the comments made about my appearance. I’ve been told I’m ugly because of my skin tone, by full-grown men and women, since I was 12 years old.”

Suhana further wrote, “Other than the fact that these are actual adults, what’s sad is that we are all Indian, which automatically makes us brown – yes we come in different shades but no matter how much you try to distance yourself from the melanin, you just can’t. Hating on your own people just means that you are painfully insecure.”

Celebrated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, 74, has been appointed president of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Society which runs the prestigious film school in Pune, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

Kapur, who is known for movies from the Indian superhero film ‘Mr India’ to ‘Bandit Queen’ based on the incidents in the life of Phoolan Devi and an acclaimed biopic on Queen Elizabeth, will hold the post till March 3, 2023.

According to a person aware of the developments, the ministry of information and broadcasting has also appointed Kapur as the chairperson of the FTII governing council.

The tenure of the earlier members of the society had ended in March 2020. The other members of the governing council will be appointed soon, the person cited above said.

Kapur will head the premier film school at a time when, like many other colleges and universities, it is also grappling with the challenges posed by Covid-19.

The FTII had earlier declared the results of the entrance test and is planning the future course. Online classes and training courses have been continuing.

“Wherever it is difficult for students to attend classes, the institute has been putting up the material on the website,” said the person cited above.

Information and Broadcasting minister Prakash Javadekar said “Kapur, who has a vast experience, will add more value to the Institute. I am sure everybody will welcome his appointment”.

“Shekhar Kapur, as a reputed film maker of international stature, is without doubt an excellent choice. FTII welcomes him as its Chairman. It’s come a full circle from Dev Anand who started his career working at Prabhat Studio within the campus of FTII today, to his nephew Shekhar Kapur as Chairman of FTII,” said Bhupendra Kainthola, Director, FTII.

The previous FTII chief was BP Singh known for his role as the lead actor in tele-serial CID. Singh was recently appointed by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) to its general assembly.

The Film and Television Institute of India was set up by the Centre in 1960 in the premises of the erstwhile Prabhat Studios in Pune. It conducts various film related courses including on acting, direction, sound recording, editing and cinematography.
