There will be no cuts no trims and the movie Joker will be on screens as shot by Shirish Kunder. Now it has become a rare news where a movie fails to get an "A" certificate. There has been movies who wanted to receive the certificate but Shirish Kunder is not in the league. He was super excited about the fact that his movie came out with a U certificate.
"#JOKER Update: Censor gives `U` Certificate with no cuts. Calls it a clean family entertainer they have seen in a long time," Kunder tweeted.
The movie which stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade, Minissha Lamba in the lead roles will hit screens on August 31st.
The movie however hasn't been able to create the buzz which it had done with Rowdy Rathore or similar Akshay movies, the songs are still not hitting the high positions on charts and this could ofcourse be a worry for the director and the producer. (video songs of Joker)
Akshay Kumar plays the role of Raj/Agasthya who's working on a top secret project for creating a device to communicate with aliens. The film revolves around a village Paglapur that didn't find a place in either India or Pakistan at the time of partition.
The village had the distinction of housing the largest mental asylum in the region and in the melee that ensued during partition, the asylum inmates broke loose, drove away the villagers and established their own republic in Paglapur. And that's how it stayed for the next 60 years! While the world outside changed, Paglapur remained isolated, with no electricity, television or sanity!
The story sounds like typical Akshay Kumar version on how he would act, but we will wait few more weeks on how good it makes an impact on audience. The duo of Akshay and Sonakshi has been known to do wonders and their onscreen chemistry has been praised a lot in Rowdy Rathore.
Aliens resembles sea creature Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean series, another resembles the aliens shown in recent blockbuster Men In Black 3. One of the dwarf alien in the Joker's poster, resembles the famous ET - the extra terrestrial.
There has been lot of criticism for Shirish on the graphics and aliens of his choice, the famous one's were from :
"Aliens don't wear zippers and LED lights Mr Kunder. Nakal k lie b akal chaie :p (you need brains to cheat)," posted Annu Agarwal on Facebook. "Just saw the poster of Joker...what were they thinking? shameless... stop copying Hollywood," tweeted Hanish Jindal.
The movie is also said to be showing Farah Khan in a cameo, much before her SFKTNP (Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi) - "It was a totally different experience for me to be directed by my husband. It was a last minute decision to add the portion, where I play myself in the film." says Farah Khan.
