While MY BROTHER NIKHIL got critical acclaim. BAS EK PAL was appreciated in some circuits. And now Sanjay Suri and Onir come together for SORRY BHAI which may not really be that quintessential big film but has it’s strength lying in simplicity and sheer warmness that it promises to exude.
Though Sanjay Suri is content with the kind of films he is doing and has over the years carved a niche for himself, when films like SINGH IS KINNG, GOLMAAL RETURNS and the likes turn into big money spinners, doesn’t he ever feel like being a part of such ‘nonsensical’ entertainers?
‘I haven’t seen them so I don’t know if they were nonsensical’, says Sanjay in a diplomatic tone, ‘Yes, I want to do lighter films and I know I am good at it. However, it is films like JHANKAAR BEATS that are my kind of fun.’
But films like SINGH IS KINNG and GOLMAAL RETURNS do promise a good return on investment on good time, isn’t it? While he is taking it slow with a film like SORRY BHAI, isn’t he too lured by ‘get–me–that–money–quickly’ trend?
‘See, it is like this. If film making was that safe then I think all would only make that quintessential masala film and would succeed but that doesn’t seem to be happening. A great opening weekend is more hype related than quality related and even in the masala films the audience is looking at a minimum quality. So my decision is mainly based on what excites us and would be feasible to do as logistics play an important role in selecting a film’, reasons Sanjay.
