Many dubbed him as a 'one film wonder boy' when Kuch Kuch Hota Hai turned a big hit. He made the critics eat their own words with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Then the success of his subsequent films Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and My Name is Khan not only won the hearts of the film lovers but also the critics. Now, all eyes are on his latest offering We Are Family. Guess who we are talking about? No prizes for guessing. He is Karan Johar.
Yes Karan Johar has not failed as a director so far. But as a producer, he has had his share of failure. His films Duplicate, Kaal, Kurbaan and Koochie Koochie Hota Hain failed terribly while Kal Ho Naa Ho, Dostana and Wake Up Sid did well at the box office. However, the back-to-back success of My Name is Khan and I Hate Luv Love Storys has pushed him to the top again. Now, the big question is whether his latest production film We Are Family will also succeed.
Karan Johar seems to be very confident of We Are Family. Unlike other filmmakers, he organised the preview of the film a few days before its release. As if that's not enough, he released it on Thursday (September 2) instead of Friday.
However, film critics have mixed opinion about the film. Some praised it to heavens while the others gave not so favourable reviews. But the good news is that critics have lauded the performances of the lead actors. So, fans of Kajol, Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor have something to look forward to. It is expected to draw the family audience, as it is a clean entertainer.
Yes, the hype around the film has been great but the big question that remains to be answered is – will Karan repeat history with We Are Family? Let's hope he does!
