Anjali Menon’s star studded entertainer Bangalore Days was to release on May 23 but unconfirmed reports now say that the movie might come out later on May 30 only!
The postponing of the date is rumored to have a variety of reasons behind it including the release of Rajnikanth’s epic movie Kochadaiiyaan and the surprise hit that’s taking up theatre space everywhere in Kerala since last weekend – Manju Warrier’s comeback movie How Old Are You directed by Rosshan Andrrews!
While the reports have not been verified with either Anjali or the cast and crew of the movie, the reasons seem plausible enough. While How Old Are You was expected to do moderately well at best, the sensation it has become is truly amazing.
Bangalore Days too is highly anticipated and it makes sense box office wise to give the movie and the audience the time they deserve to maximize the initial rush. This becomes important considering the opening weekend’s word of mouth reviews have a lot to do with its final box office performance.
Anjali Menon wrote and directed this movie which stars Dulquer Salman, Nivin Pauly and Nazriya Nazim in the lead with an impressive supporting cast which includes big names like Fahadh Fasil, Isha Talwar, Parvathy Menon and Nithya Menon along with a host of other veteran actors.
The story revolves around three friends Arjun (Aju), Krishnan and Divya who set out to fulfill a dream vacation in Bangalore during which inadvertently their dreams and hopes are challenged and hopefully brought to fruition. A light hearted, youthful and inspiring narrative as promised by the trailer and the released song sequence of the movie – both of which have thrilled the fans and boosted the hype surrounding the flick.
In fact, the excitement felt by the fandom by large could be evidenced by the fact non Malayali audience members requested the same trailer with added English subtitles and the crew obliged!
So clearly, the audience waits eagerly for the release of the film, whichever date its makers choose…
