Pataakha, the other release of the week, is a Vishal Bhardwaj film. Starring Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan, this is a story of two warring sisters. Set in Rajasthan, this film also stars Sunil Grover. With Vishal Bhardwaj at the helm, one can expect that this will be an enjoyable film.
Follow all the updates about Sui Dhaaga and Pataakha.
Sanya Malhotra on playing Chutki in Pataakha
Sanya Malhotra, in an interview with indianexpress.com, said, "Pataakha was both physically and mentally challenging for me. I could relate to Babita on an emotional level or Miloni in Photograph or Renne in Badhai Ho. But this one was something I could not emotionally connect to. I could eventually do that. When I heard the narration of my character, I was so excited but I had a doubt if I could pull it off or not because internally I could relate to her but externally I am not at all like her."
Anushka Sharma on Sui Dhaaga
Talking about her role in Sui Dhaaga, Anushka Sharma told indianexpress.com, "The beauty of the film is that Mamta comes from a place or a background where she was not educated and was not given the kind of opportunities you and I have in this world. Despite that, she is a bright girl. She is a homemaker and crafty but because there are no opportunities for her, the craft is lost until the family faces dire situations. At such a moment, she becomes the mind behind the plan to start something of their own. The man, Mauji, is the creative mind behind her plan. The beauty is when she wants to do all this and finally steps out of the house, the husband is super supportive. He is not like the kind of person who would want his wife to stay home. He asks her for inputs in life too.”
Celebrities at Pataakha screening
Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Zaira Wasim and others attended the screening of Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan starrer Pataakha.
Varun Dhawan on Sui Dhaaga
Talking about his film Sui Dhaaga, Varun Dhawan told indianexpress.com, " It is an entertaining film. A lot of my friends have already watched the film and have said that 70% of the film made them laugh while they felt emotional in the rest 30%. So, it has humour you will experience at the theater."
Pataakha box office prediction
In a conversation with indianexpress.com, trade analyst Girish Johar said, “For Patakhaa, the awareness levels are quite low. It is mostly banking on the brand name of Vishal Bhardwaj. Having Sui Dhaaga as competition, it has a big battle ahead of it. It might earn around a crore and a half on its Day 1."
Our verdict on Sui Dhaaga
Sui Dhaaga delivers exactly what it promises: a tale stitched together with ‘sui-dhaaga’, dipped in desi ‘silaai’ and ‘kadhaai’. The only trouble with the Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan starrer is its total predictability: you know what’s coming miles before the characters do.
Sui Dhaaga box office prediction
As per trade analyst Girish Johar, Sui Dhaaga might earn Rs 10 crore on opening day. He said, "Varun, Anushka and YRF are a superb combination. Also, they have made the right noise about their film. The buzz and appeal of it are very good and going by the current times when desi stories are doing well at the box office, I feel Sui Dhaaga should clock around Rs 10 crore at the BO on its day 1."
