Joker Review Upodcast

Directed by enfant terrible of Hindi Film cinema Shirish Kunder, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade and Alex O’Nell, follows up his 2006 gem Jaan E Mann with a Sci-fi village hoax movie Joker.

Unfortunately already one of the lowest openers of the Indian Box Office of 2012 and pretty much a disappointment all round for those looking forward to what this witty director with a keen visual sense would come up with after a gap of 6 years.

 

Our guest GetFilmy joins us to discuss the debacle leading up to the release, what went wrong and we speculate on what the next steps could be for Shirish Kunder as a film maker.

We try to talk as positively about the movie as we usually do on the show and theorize what went on behind the scenes.

  • Was it bad marketing?
  • The effects of slapgate?
  • Why did Akshay not promote the movie?
  • Is it a completely bad movie?

We finish up the show with the forthcoming releases of the year and what else we can look forward to.

Apologies for our listeners that joined us on Ustream ,that was an experiment that didn’t go well…Maybe next time.
