Unnchai Director standpoint
After seven years Sooraj Barjatya decided to direct a film. Eventually, it turns out to be a great run, as critics have given positive reviews. Many experts and critics say “Still contents speaks in Bollywood”. Taran Adarsh (Film Analyst) tweeted “Double-digit simply indicates the power of content.”. Director Sooraj Barjatya was known for making family-centric films like Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo (2015), Vivah(2006), and Hum Saath-Saath Hain(1999). Sooraj shared how it feels to make a film like Uunchai “it was a liberating moment for me.” In an interview with PTI, the director explains how time changes after the covid pandemic. Sooraj told, “In this film, I moved away from early trappings. There was a time when your character’s name is PREM then the film automatically works at the box office.”
Furthermore, he added, ” But have to change the strategy because after the pandemic everything changed, So there was no point in following the old strategy.” It will be interesting to see whether the film can carry momentum in the coming days.
