Post the release of Jodhaa Akbar on Friday, Feb 15, there hasn't been any popular release in Bollywood and the situation is likely to be the same till March 7th, when Subhash Ghai's Black and White hits the theatres.
In the interim, a lot of new Hollywood releases, some C-grade Hindi films and even some dubbed films are being released trying to cash in on the open weeks. However, what took us by surprise was when we saw this poster of the Rajinikanth starrer Chandramukhi which is lined for release this week. Apparently, this super-duper hit Tamil movie which released a couple of years back is now dubbed in Hindi and releases across cinemas today (Feb 29th).
Chandramukhi directed by P.Vasu stars Superstar Rajinikanth playing an eccentric psychiatrist along with south sensation Jyothika and Sonu Sood (who was last seen as Ash's brother in Jodhaa Akbar). The movie which has won 5 National awards is a spooky supernatural thriller. For the benefit of all those who came in late, last year's smash hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa starring Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan and Shiney Ahuja had a story very similar to Chandramukhi. Interestingly, Chandramukhi itself borrows its premise from the Malayalam film Manachitratazhu starring Shobhana.
So, to add a twist to your movie watching experience, check out the south blockbuster Chandramukhi starring Rajinikanth and Jyothika do the 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa' in Hindi.
