Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film OMG 2, a sequel to the widely loved film OMG- Oh My God, is reportedly set to release on an OTT platform instead in theatres. The producers of the OMG 2 are opting to release it either on Voot or Jio. However, there is no official confirmation of the same.

There are reports that OMG 2 will release on May 26, 2022. Akshay Kumar’s first glimpse in the avatar of Lord Shiva from the satirical comedy-drama film has gone viral. The first looks of the cast, teasers and trailer of OMG 2 will be launched in the second week of April.

Several reports say that the makers have decided to skip a theatrical release because of Akshay’s recent theatrical failures. The 55-year-old actor has had quite a few flops in recent times with films like Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, Raksha Bandhan, Samrat Prithviraj, Ram Setu and Selfiee. This has led the makers and the cast to go for a direct-to-digital release.

As soon as the news went viral on social media, fans suggested that the film should get a theatrical release only, as OMG was a blockbuster and Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal went on to have the biggest blockbuster of 2012. The last film of Akshay that went on to be a blockbuster in theatres was Sooryavanshi, that released in November 2021.

OMG was directed by Umesh Shukla, whereas the sequel is directed by Amit Rai and is bankrolled by Vipul D Shah, Rajesh Bahl and Ashwin Varde. OMG 2 also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Arun Govil and Yami Gautam. The makers do not bring back Paresh Rawal in the sequel.

Akshay Kumar has a number of films in the pipeline. Apart from OMG 2, the Raksha Bandhan actor will be seen in the Soorarai Pottru remake, Capsule Gill, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and Hera Pheri 3.

The actor has also signed up for Dinesh Vijan’s next action drama titled Sky Force. Akshay Kumar is also going to mark his debut in Marathi films with Mahesh Manjrekar’s Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat.

Amar Singh Chamkila social media review: Diljit Dosanjh gets praise from audience, fans say Imtiaz Ali has created magic

Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra starrer film was released on OTT giant Netflix today.

Published

Imtiaz Ali-helmed Amar Singh Chamkila released on Netflix today . The title character, played by Diljit Doshanjh, of the enigmatic Punjabi folk artist Chamkila, whose successful career is interrupted by his violent murder. The much-awaited film was appreciated by the audiences as they felt every minute of the film was worth watching.

Soon after the film was released on OTT giant Netflix, it was well received by the audience. Taking to social media fans appreciated Imtiaz Ali’s craft and Diljit Doshanjh’s acting. A user said what a magic Imtiaz Ali has created. Another said it is worth watching. A third user said, Imtiaz Ali is back.

Amidst the sorrow, the tone changes as we listen in on the man who has lost his Ustaad and the policeman looking into his murder. The blood of Chamkila and his wife Amarjot Kaur stains the Punjabi music industry, making them a miserable sight draped in white sheets.

The film is a remarkable record of a man whose courage ruined him and made him a great star at the same time. The most remarkable thing about it is that the audience can nearly always witness both his ascent to fame and his impending collapse occurring simultaneously. Even in the face of threats to his life from terrorists from Khalistani province and competing musicians, Chamkila never fails to captivate audiences with his unique charisma.

Amar Singh Chamikla appears to take the shape of a biographical drama, yet it delves deeper into the themes of evil, innocence, and a man’s drive to prove his worth in the face of mounting criticism. As music director AR Rahman saidd, Imtiaz has reinvented himself, and he agrees that filmmaker Imtiaz Ali has moved away from his well-known post-teen love clichés.

This film does not seek to be a documentary on Chamkila’s double-entendre songs, which led the self-described watchdogs of society to label him and his listeners as ganda banda (a dirty man). However, it also serves as a commentary on the era and society that Chamkila lived in. Imtiaz has shown how Chamkila’s life and career were affected by the insurgency in Punjab during the 1980s, as have script developers Nidhi Sethia and Richa Nanda.

In order to strengthen the viewer’s emotional connection with Chamkila and Amarjot, Amar Singh Chamkila employs archive video from a variety of sources, including footage from their housefull akhaadas (stage shows) in Punjab.
