This one is going to be a week of comedies for Bollywood. Dilliwaalli Zaalim Girlfriend and Hunterr arrive together, and both are youth centric affairs. Let’s talk about Dilliwaalli Zaalim Girlfriend first. The film has seen some good visibility coming its way, courtesy the songs that have fetched attention during the last few weeks. Moreover, it has Divyendu Singh and Pradhuman Singh promising good humor, something that they have demonstrated well before in films like Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Chashme Baddoor and Tere Bin Laden. Since the film promises to present the quirky side of Delhi, one expects some good fun here.
On the other hand Hunterr has adult content at its core. Gulshan Devaiah, who has shown good range in films like Shaitaan, Ram Leela and Hate Story, leads the show with Radhika Apte (Badlapur) bringing on the spunk. Since Anurag Kashyap’s name is attached to the film, one expects unique content on display.
Both film are word of mouth affairs though and would basically show growth from Saturday onwards, basis the feedback on content. They would get good release though since NH10 and Dum Laga Ke Haisha are the only two other films on contention and there is enough screen space to accommodate a couple of more mid-budget affairs. Since there is no notable release next week, Dilliwaalli Zaalim Girlfriend as well as Hunterr have an opportunity to grow if audience give a thumbs up.
