After some back to back ‘desi’ fun with the likes of Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and Bareilly Ki Barfi, it is time for an ‘exotic’, ‘popcorn film’ to hit the screens in the form of A Gentleman. This time around the action shifts to Miami and if the promos are any indication, this one is a good looking film in the offering, what with colors and vibrancy filling the frames. It has been a while since a ‘cool’ film arrived in theaters and this Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer appears to be just the right fit.
That said, of late audiences are getting more and more enticed by strong content in the narrative as well and not just the cool look, good looking lead pair and fun feel. This means that for director duo Raj-DK it is indeed going to be the test of times as they are expected to balance it all. Traditionally they have tried to bring in different content each time around, be it 99, Shor In The City, Go Goa Gone or Happy Ending. They are yet to score a big one though and hence one waits to see if A Gentleman turns out to be a major success for them.
