Trivia

THE FILM may have gone unnoticed at the box-office, but debutante director Junaid Memon hasn't given up on the film yet. Although the film has been released in a few territories Junaid was all set to re-release the film wherever it had been released as well as open it in other circuits with a new title. While the original title [THE FILM] was retained, he had decided to add a fresh title before the original title and release it all over again. In fact, there re rumors that he had decided to rename the film after a notorious gangster, since the film deals with extortion. Someone did suggest that the film be called by that [gangsters] name, but Junaid did not like that.. I am still undecided about the new title, but I should take a decision in a few days since I plan to re-release the film in the first week of January. Another thing that Junaid has decided is shoot a brand new promo with Mahima Chaudhary wherein she addresses the audience directly, telling them that not many people ventured to watch the film due to its offbeat title [THE FILM], but since the film is all about dreams, aspirations and extortion, the moviegoers must give the film a try when it releases in their city.

excellent movie made after many years
19 April 2006 | by vishakha_indiraSee all my reviews

The film is a movie which really keeps u spell bound almost all the time.i have seen this movie thrice now and every time i watched it i could understand the technical level of the movie better.the whole credit goes to the director.If u take the story of the film,its a total new concept which of course requires a great effort to act in and i must congratulate all the actors for their wonderful performance.But the performance i enjoyed the most was of Vaibhav.He has managed to give an excellent performance.He also could connect with the audience very well. I look forward for more brilliant performances from him in the upcoming years.Best wishes to the director n every member of the movie associated.
