If the first part was nutty as a fruitcake, the second one is believed to be mad as a hatter. It is that time of the year when you will get to behold the craziest and maddest confusion on the silver screen in Smeep Kang’s ‘Carry On Jatta 2’. After a six-year period of waiting, the sequel of the blockbuster movie is set to hit the big screens amongst immeasurable expectations. The movie is releasing on this Friday, i.e. 01/06/2018.
The trailer of the movie was released earlier this month on the official YouTube channel of White Hill Music. At the time of writing this article, it has received over 8.5 million views on the same platform.
The movie stars Gippy Grewal, Sonam Bajwa, Binnu Dhillon, Jaswinder Bhalla, Gurpreet Ghuggi, BN Sharma, Karamjit Anmol, Upasana Singh and Jyotii Sethi. Having made some changes to the cast, the makers have more or less stuck to the same names which brought them laurels in the first part. The overall story of the movie is likely to encompass side-splitting comic punches, a hefty comical chemistry, a love story, a cock-and-bull sequence and not to forget, a pandemonium climax.
Vaibhav Suman and Shreya Srivastava have penned down the story of the movie. Naresh Kathooria, who was the brain behind the jocular dialogues of Carry On Jatta, has written the dialogues this time as well. The movie has been edited by Rohit Dhiman.
Carry On Jatta 2 is produced by Gunbir Singh Sidhu, Manmord Sidhu, Atul Bhalla and Amit Bhalla under the banner of White Hill Studios and A&A Advisors. Talking of White Hill Studios, it is a name which has given the Punjabi industry some of its biggest blockbusters in the recent times. A sequel of Carry On Jatta coming under their banner does not need any further reasons to watch the movie in cinema halls.
In an interview with Punjabi Mania, Gippy Grewal and Sonam Bajwa, the leading pair of the movie, constantly laid emphasis on the movie being a stress-buster, a movie that will take you on an obstreperous laughter spree. In Gippy Grewal words, “We have tried out best keep the sequel really close to the first part. In ‘Goldy’, ‘Jass’, ‘Honey’, ‘Dhillon sahab’ and others, mostly all characters will be the same. It is a bang-on comedy movie.”
Asked if she is feeling any pressure before the release of the movie, Sonam Bajwa said, “There is no pressure as such. I am really excited. I have read the script and saw the movie being shot, so I am feeling very confident about it. The vibe of the film is so funny that you get a feeling that the audiences will really like the movie.”
Had it been a regular movie preview, mentioning the potential threat to a Punjabi movie caused by Hindi movies releasing on the same day in Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’, Shashanka Ghosh’s ‘Veerey Di Wedding’ and Karan Butani’s ‘Phamous’ was a must. That being said, it might not be the case with Carry On Jatta 2, especially after watching the way in which it has been marketed in front of the audiences. The sweeping promotions carried out by the producers has developed an inexplicable ballyhoo around the movie.
In which is not an hyperbolic statement, it would not be wrong to say that the movie has thus far generated the maximum buzz before the release of a movie when it comes to the Punjabi film industry this year. You take the name of the medium through which a movie can be promoted and you will find the name of Carry On Jatta 2 over there. Such has been the scale at which the movie is popularised.
In which is another rarity for the Punjabi film industry, the advance booking of the movie had started on Monday in premier locations of Punjab. On the following day, cinema listings of Carry On Jatta 2 across the world were made public in a bid to give everyone an equal chance of booking the tickets. Another intriguing fact about the movie is that it is being released on a widespread manner in countries like Pakistan, UAE, Italy, Germany, Austria and Belgium.
Punjabi movies getting a wider screen space in Canada, Australia and New Zealand is still acceptable. But Carry On Jatta 2 releasing in the above mentioned countries speak a lot about the outspread distribution of the movie. Until last night, the movie was being released 800+ screens and was given 2600+ shows per day across the world. And as you read this article, expect these numbers to grow even more. Staggering numerals. Aren’t they?
