After a great Diwali weekend with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay, it’s time for THE END. Yes, that’s partly the name of the film which is releasing this Friday. Whether or not to watch it can be gauged from what it has to offer to you. So read along.
Director: Jaideep Chopra
Star cast: Rahul Roy, Divyendu Sharma, Kiku Sharda, Debutants Harshad Chopda and Priya Banerjee
Synopsis: 2016 – THE END is a story about four young friends – Sunny, Asse, Rahul and Sheetal. Though they all come from respectable families they are still unhappy with their lives and hope their dreams come true. Accidentally they read a news about the world coming to an end in the next 7 days, which scares them and they decide to at least live their lives to the fullest for the next 7 days. After partying one night, they wake up to find themselves in possession with a stolen Mercedes & Rs. 1 Crore rupees.
Why should you watch it? We have all watched 2012 and loved watching a fictional version of how world might come to an end. It stemmed from the Mayan prediction about world doom, apocalypse. But here the premise is starkly different and also amusing. What would you do if you come to know that the world is ending in next seven days? Will you wallow in self pity or make the most of the time left with you? Characters in this film decide to go with the second option and that’s what makes it interesting. They decide to have fun in the last few days but fun goes for a toss; so yes it is definitely interesting. But why should they bother about the steal? Isn’t the world ending in 7 days? How does it matter from whom have they stolen it from? Guess you will all know that in the movie itself.
