Thank God it’s Friday
By Harish V.
August 10, 2007
Another Friday and am back with this week’s prediction. Five new movies, each catering to a different set of audience will hit the theatres this week - two each from Tamil and Hindi and one from English. The two Tamil films are Pallikoodam and Arya.

Pallikoodam, directed by Thankar Bhachan, has a host of stars in it.
Chak De India
The story is all about four school friends who meet after many years and how their lives have changed in the course of time. The movie does have the nostalgic effect which is sure to go down with the audience well. Another Tamil film in the race is Arya, a Madhavan-starrer. The actor was last seen in a full-fledged Tamil movie - Thambi - a semi hit. The movie is set to be a fun romantic entertainer.

The English movie to be released this week is the Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan’s threequel of their very successful Rush Hour. The movie will be released simultaneously all over the world as Rush Hour franchise and the star Jackie Chan is very famous in India. Rush Hour is set in France and let’s see how this dysfunctional cop team fare.

Of the two Hindi films, one is Kaafila, a Sunny Deol movie. Sunny is very optimistic about this after his Apne became a big hit in the north though it did not fare well in the south. And Kaafila, which is about immigrants, is not expected to make a huge start as the marketing has been a low key affair.

Now for the Pick of the week

Behindwoods pick of the week – Chak De India

Take out your hockey sticks and enjoy this King Khan’s motivational movie about woman hockey team. Shahrukh plays the coach in this sports movie, which is expected to have a thundering start, as he has tremendous fan following. For the first time, Shahrukh won’t be featuring in any duets nor is this a romantic role.

Even the marketing push has been good as Shahkukh was on Star Sports channel on the eve of the third and final cricket match between India and England, where he talked about cricket and obviously about his movie Chak de India. The film will be premiered in London and the Queen of England is expected to grace the occasion. Let’s see whether the movie lives up to its humungous expectations. And early reviews say this movie is a master piece. So expect the King of Khans to hit a goal this weekend.

Prediction - All the movies are worth watching or should I call it Thank God it’s Friday
