This Friday, we have an interesting mix. A classic romance is coming back on screen Laila Majnu while J P Dutta is ready to the tell the tale of a war with China that India won in Paltan. So on one side, you have an all-consuming romance, while on the other side it is a love story with your country. Well, you can say, this Friday, it will all be about loving the most important thing/person in your life and not hesitate to die for the same. Laila Majnu as the name suggests is the story of a doomed romance between two people from two warring families. The eventuality of this tale is known to all and yet it doesn’t stop fascinating our filmmakers. This time it has Ekta Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali behind it. As for Paltan, it is actually a story about a platoon that managed to ward off Chinese infiltration. Not many are aware of this battle and that’s exactly what makes it so interesting. But we couldn’t shake off the feeling that the treatment won’t be any different from Border which had released in 1997. Here’s a bit more about the films ready for release this week…
