Just four days are left for the release of Prem Geet 3, the first Indo-Nepali film, and the excitement in the air is palpable. The film, which will be released in cinemas on September 23, has a largely unknown star cast for the Indian audiences and yet the movie zealots here have been waiting for the film with bated breath.
A major reason behind this hype is that the film’s assets have got a very favorable response. On August 1, the first look of the film was unveiled and this was the day when the promotional campaign began. The poster went viral, surprising everyone associated with the film. The teaser, which premiered a week later, indicated that the period action drama has been mounted on a huge scale. The trailer, released on September 1, gave a much better idea about the movie and helped in enhancing the buzz.
In today’s times, when there’s a dearth of good songs, Prem Geet 3’s album has proved to be an exception. All its four songs have already become a rage. ‘Koi Na Koi Naata Hai’, the first song of the film, was released before the trailer. Sung by Jubin Nautiyal, composed by Pawandeep Rajan and written by Ruby Fulara and Subhash Kale, it became an instant chartbuster. The duet romantic song ‘Tum Pyaar Ho’, sung by Palak Muchhal and Ankit Tiwari, composed by Aslam Keyi and written by Kumaar, was praised for its tune and catchy beats. ‘Jahan Bhi Jao’, meanwhile, was loved not just for its composition but also for Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s soulful vocals. It is composed by DH Harmony and penned by Hari Shankar Sufi. ‘Mujh Mein Bas Jana’ stood out as it was the most exhilarating track of the album. It is sung by Palak Muchhal and Dev Negi, composed by Kalyan Singh and written by A M Turaz.
The source added, “Prem Geet 3 will also be released in 500 screens, UAE, United Kingdom, Canada, USA, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Japan, South Korea and many other countries in Europe. In these places, an opening of Rs. 2 crores is expected. In short, the opening day numbers would be around Rs. 5.50 crores. This is great news for a film, which has been made in just Rs. 11 crores (Rs. 6 crores being the cost of production and Rs. 5 crores being P&A costs).
Indian filmmaker Subhash Kale, the producer of Prem Geet 3, said, “Prem Geet 3 is the first Indo-Nepali film to be released in cinemas. I was sure it’s an apt film to begin this trend as it has scale, grandeur, emotions and music. It gives me immense joy to see that the film has generated such excitement. I am sure audiences would enjoy seeing this labour of love on the big screen.”
