‘Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment’
Not leaving anyone disappointed, the Sajid Khan directed cast and crew of Humshakal’s: Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Esha Gupta and Tamannah Bhatia continued the madness and the comic-timing their film promises about at the press conference held today at Park Hayatt, Dubai observes Yasmeen Maqbool
“It indeed will be the best family comedy entertainer of the year; and if that’s not enough, I promise you 9 times the fun,” said the confident director Sajid Khan (no matter, he seemed as confident when he was to release his last film Himmatwala).
Humshakals, which releases in the UAE on Thursday, June 19, is a situational comedy of three men, who have three look-alikes floating around them. The trailer bears all the stamps of a typical Sajid Khan film — slapstick comedy, confusion, mimicry, loud characters and no-brainers. “We are unpretentious, disarming, vulnerable and sympathy evoking characters in the film meant to just make our audience laugh and have a great time,” said Saif Ali Khan.
Riteish Deshmukh analyzing and making more sense of his comedy character admits, “yes we do feel stupid doing certain roles and while building a character, but we understand that the conviction with which we pull it off and go by believing in that we require to do as directed, it comes across as good comic timing alone.”
And what more could you expect from the “Govinda” of today as nicknamed by director Khan. As Deshmukh mimicked Aamir Khan one would have actually believed that the Khan was here to promote Sajid’s film. “Imitation is the highest form of flattery,” said the director when asked if Saif’s mimicking father-in-law Randhir Kapoor in the film would upset him.
To add flavor to laughter, Sajid Khan World premiered in Dubai the last song of the film: Barbaad Raat, Music by Himesh Reshammiya.
Ram Kapoor admitted that the most trying part of his character was to flirt with his effeminate role in the film, “And this is something only a Sajid Khan film can have.”
The girls Esha and Tamannah looked pretty and dolled up for the conference and Bipasha Basu the third leading lady was absent to share the fun and frolic with the team and press.
Humshakals releases in the UAE on June 19, 2014.
