Less than six months after making his debut as an actor/singer in Rock On, Farhan Akhtar is back as a leading man. Luck By Chance is the film in question which sees him as a solo lead while being paired opposite Konkona Sen Sharma. Even though as producers, he and Ritesh Sidhwani are going ahead with a 'subtle promotion' philosophy while letting audiences explore the film by themselves, there are still good hopes from this directorial debut of Zoya Akhtar. A fortnight before the release of the film, one still wonders though if Luck By Chance is a happy film that we are looking at.
"Well, Luck By Chance follows the graph of most movies that we see", says Farhan Akhtar, the man of the show, "There are happy moments, euphoric moments, fun moments, winning [an error occurred while processing this directive]moments and of course sad moments. As for what happens in the end that could qualify it as a happy or a sad film for you; then I would say don't go with any preconceived notion. It is a film to be watched and enjoyed and how it concludes is for you to find out."
Still, one wants to believe that at the end of the day, we are looking at a commercial outing, right? "Absolutely", Farhan is quick to respond, "As I said there are light incidents and then drama too sees a resolution to it. But honestly, I can't tell you about the end. The film's essence lies in the question which is asked that whether 'success or failure is what you make of it' or 'is it what others tell you'. To put it differently, the question here is 'Do you think you are successful because you too genuinely feel so?'"
