Ajay Devgan’s Himmatwala will do 100 crores business.
In the recent years, Ajay Devgan is the next most popular star after Salman Khan. In the recent past, 3 of his films crossed 100 crores business; namely Singham, Bol Bacchan and Son of Sardar. Even his film Himmatwala that has been released on 29th March, 2013 will also cross 100 crores. In 3 days it has collected more than 35 crores in India.
Sajid Khan had directed the film and Vashu Bhagnani and Siddharth Roy Kapoor produced the film. It was made with the same story as that of original Himmatwala released in 1983. Jeetender and Sri Devi played the main roles in that film. Ajay Devgan and Tamanna played the main roles in this film.
Sajid Wajid composed the music of the film. In the film it was shown that Ritesh Deshmukh was killed in an accident. His friend Ajay Devgan who was a street fighter came to his village Ramnagar to take care of his mother Zarina Wahab and sister Leena Jumani. The entire village was under the tyranny of Mahesh Manjarekar. His brother –in-law Paresh Rawal was also a curse for the village.
Leena fell in love with Paresh Rawal’s son Adhyayan Suman. Ajay Devgan agreed to get her married to Suman. Paresh Rawal started torturing her. Ajay Devgan married Mahesh Manjarekar’s daughter Tamanna and blackmailed him to return the land of the landless which he captured with force.
At the end of the film Ajay Devgan fought against the men of Mahesh Manjarekar and became the sarpanch of the village. The fight sequences were good. Ajay Devgan even fought with tiger. The dance sequences were not at par with the Jeetender Sri Devi standard. The songs “taki o taki” and “naino me sajna” were kept same in the new film. Amit Kumar, Mika Singh and Shreya Ghoshal sang the songs.
Tamanna did well in her debut film. Mahesh Manjarekar, Zarina Wahab and Paresh Rawal were impressive. Ajay Devgan was extremely charishmatic. Due to his own brilliance the film will do business of more than 100 crores. Viewers should watch it.
