  • Why these 10 sequels should never have been made

    In a rare case, three sequels have been released back-to-back—Rock On 2 on November 11, and Force 2 and Tum Bin 2 on November 18—and two have seen pathetic footfalls. Force 2, which has worked awhile on the axiom of being a no-brainer action film with stars, is still priced in a way that breaking even in costs will be impossible. All three films have been made on the perennially and fundamentally flawed concept that a sequel must be bigger in canvas and budget than the earlier films. What the audience actually wants is a better film, regardless of whether the film is a true sequel (a continuation of the story), another part of a series with the same characters, or a sequel in spirit, like Tum

While Ranveer Singh‘s infectious energy has found good attention coming its way, the theme of the film as well as the treatment (basis the promo) has made one wonder what Befikre actually has to offer. The legacy that Aditya Chopra carries is a major factor coming into play as well since Befikre is clearly miles apart from what he has made so far.
