Direction: Kunal Deshmukh
Production: Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt for Vishesh Films, Fox Star Studios
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Esha Gupta
Writers: Shagufta Rafique (Story and Screenplay), Sanjay Masoom (Dialogues)
Release Date: May 4, 2012
Star Value: Over the years, Emraan Hashmi has become one of the bankable actors of Bollywood. A movie starring him does manage to create curiosity and interest among cinegoers. Due to his presence, we can say Jannat 2 has a decent star value. Esha Gupta, who makes her debut, has already managed to make heads turn, mostly due to her resemblance to Angelina Jolie.
Hype: There has been a decent hype for Jannat 2. However, the excitement isn’t as much as one would expect from a Bhatt-Emraan combo. The promos of the movie have received just an average response.
Music: ‘Tu Hi Mera’ song has managed to popularize the movie. The rest of the tracks haven’t succeeded in creating a buzz.
Prediction: Jannat 2 won’t open to a very good response. It relies heavily on the initial reports. Even if it receives an above average response, it will help the producers recover their money as it’s not made on a high budget.
