The ‘A’ list
‘Awaarapan’, ‘Apne’ and ‘Aap ka Suroor’— which will be the ace in the pack?
The Deols’ ‘Apne’, Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Awaarapan’ and Himesh Reshammiya’s ‘Aap ka Suroor’—it’s ‘three much’ of a choice for audiences this week.
‘Apne’ is a complete family film. With the three Deols coming together, the movie will be a major attraction for their fans. But with the family positioning, it might lose out amongst the youth.
‘Awarapan’ doesn’t seem that promising. The only known face in it is that of Emraan Hashmi. Normally, the music of any Bhatt movie always catches up. But that doesn’t seem to be the case here.
‘Aap ka Suroor’ is undoubtedly the hottest film of the year. The promotion has been extremely aggressive and hard-hitting. The hype created, especially on television, hasn’t been hitherto seen. Also, in terms of advance booking, ‘Aap ka Suroor’ is far ahead than any of the two movies releasing with it.

All three movies belong to different genres. ‘Apne’ is a movie soaked with emotions and promises a brilliant performance by Dharmendra.
‘Awaarapan’ on the other hand, could give Emraan Hashmi’s career a new lease. The film is actually meant to white wash his earlier mistakes. It could be an eye opener for people who think Emraan to be a bad actor.
‘Aap ka Suroor’ has a good opening and we do have a reason to watch it—simply to see how Himesh acts!
