Great news for Saif Ali Khan fans! The Khan’s film got thumbs up from none than Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood. Yes, you heard it right. Aamir Khan sets the bar high for the Saif’s film ‘Kaalakandi’ by sharing his review of the film. Aamir Khan watched the film at a special screening and shared his review of the film which also celebrates the directorial debut of Verma, who also wrote the script of Delhi Belly.
Admitting that he was laughing like anything throughout the film, Aamir wrote, “Kaalakandi is one (of) the funniest films I have seen in a long time. Haven’t laughed this much since I read the script of Delhi Belly. Absolutely loved all the performances. Saif was outstanding! What a debut Akshat! Proud of you. Don’t miss this one guys, it releases tom.” The name of Saif’s film ‘Kaalakandi’ is Marathi slang for things went horribly wrong. This film is black-comedy-cum-thriller based on bizarre events that happen in one night. Besides Saif in the lead role, the film also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Akshay Oberai, Isha Talwar, Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raz, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Shenaz Treasury, Amyra Dastur and Neil Bhoopalm in vital roles.
The film is a Mumbai story and it takes all across the city. “It is a Bombay story completely. It is about six people who are possibly having the worst night of their lives and whether they make it through or not. The challenge was in the writing and structuring to see how the three worlds would sit together; it was easier to shoot in Bombay at night. Just that we were shooting with rain and that complicates things. So we had rain machines all the time and actual rain to deal with. It becomes very exhausting, it isn’t comfortable and warm,” the director said while speaking to Firstpost.
