Pankh will do average business.

Pankh will do average business.

In 2010, a number of bollywood films were released till April, but excepting Ishqiya and Karthik Calling Karthik, none of the other films did good business. Pankh was written and directed by Sudipto Chattopadhyay and produced by Sanjay Gupta. It had been released on 2nd April, 2010.

The film was related to the repercussions happening in a little boy who had done a number of female roles at young age. The child roles were done with the name Baby Kusum. He wanted to be an actor after attaining adulthood. He had a strain relationship with his mother.

Due to poverty and other differences in the family he ended up being drug addict. He created an imaginary character for himself which was played by Bipasha Basu. Bipasha Basu taunted him and fought against him.

He was made to face the camera again as a young person which led to his downfall. The film highlighted the general practice of Indian films to cast child artists in role opposite to their gender.

The main role were played by Maradona Rebello, Bipasha Basu, Lilette Dube, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ronit Roy, Sanjeeta Sheikh and Amit Purohit. Music had been composed by Raju Singh. The only prominent song in the film was sung by Sunidhi Chauhan titled “jiya jalana”.

Although the theme of the film had been good, the facts did not entertain the viewers during the period of the entire film. The slowness of the subject and abstractness had led to boredom. The performances of all the actors and actresses had been good.

The film may get critical acclamation for the rare subject matter, but the box-office report would not be encouraging. The film is scheduled to do average business.
