Come 12 July and ‘Super 30’ would be hitting the screens. It isn’t just the first major release of the second half of 2019, it is also the biggest film to hit the screens in the month of July. Naturally, some good plans have been laid down for the arrival of the Hrithik Roshan starrer that has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
“The film may tell the story of an ordinary man but considering the kind of names involved and of course the topicality of the theme, it isn’t seeing a niche release for itself. Instead, it would be seeing a full-blown commercial arrival in theatres,” says an insider.
‘Super 30’ also benefits from the fact that it is practically the biggest film to release after ‘Kabir Singh’, which is currently creating havoc at the box office.
“By the time ‘Super 30’ is ready to release, ‘Kabir Singh’ would have exhausted its maximum share of audiences. For those waiting to catch a big film in theatres that has a superstar at the helm of affairs and a notable producer backing it up, there would be ‘Super 30’ right up there for the grabs,” a trade expert adds.
Even though Hrithik Roshan is being seen in a never-seen-before non-glam avatar, the content of ‘Super 30’ is such that the makers are leaving no stones unturned to make it an epic affair.
“Sajid Nadiadwala understands how to bring such films to the audiences. When he backed ‘Highway’, it was niche but still saw a good respectable release. Later even ‘Tamasha’ – despite its song and dance affair – was a largely offbeat film but saw a major arrival in theaters. Sajid’s production house Nadiadwala Grandson backed it up to the fullest and released it at around 3000 screens. Now that ‘Super 30’ is ready to arrive, expect a major release for the Hrithik Roshan starrer as well,” the insider continues.
While the promo has indeed looked quite interesting, one now waits to see how has the final product shaped up. Given the kind of confidence that Hrithik Roshan and Sajid Nadiadwala have in the film, ‘Super 30’ could well turn out to be yet another interesting film to catch in theatres this Summer.
