Phillauri - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Some films mesmerize because they linger lyrically, beautifully. Others l-l-l-i-i-i-i-n-n-g-e-r in a way you wish it stops before you can say asap. Unfortunately, Phillauri is the latter.

The first word that comes to mind when you see the trailer is “cute!” The concept, the characters, the visual effect. But, towards the end of those 3 minutes it comes across as a usual love story with some revenge-ish drama thrown in. Of course, there is a distinguishing factor in terms of a social message. Also, I am apprehensive about the whole ghost angle, because it is so easy to step into slapstick territory.

Even so, that Anushka Sharma is producing the film makes me look forward to the film. It is surely to have some substance. Even if I don't want every film to be a movie with a message, NH10, the other film she produced, gives a sense that the films she backs won't be flippant or superfluous.

Yep, looking forward to be entertained and moved.
