In what  could be considered a  Dussehra dhamaka, the two big Hindi releases this week Vipul Shah’s Namaste England and Amit Sharma’s Badhaai Ho have been given a last-minute early release.

Instead of the  two films opening on Friday October 19 as per schedule, the two producers  have taken a joint decision  to release their respective films a  day ahead, on October 18.

Explains Namaste England’s director Vipul Shah,  “It was  a very natural move. This year Dussehra is being celebrated on  both the 18th and 19th, so we decided to let the audience enjoy the  film on both days.”

The decision was mutual , with both the producers equally gung-ho with the change.

So which  of the two  would you like to see this week? Amit Sharma’s Badhaai Ho is a naughty comedy about  the embarrassment faced by the  family when the  matriarch  becomes  pregnant at an age when she is eligible for grandmotherly joys. Ayushmann Khurrana now  identified with quirky comedies  and  fresh on the heels of the  success of his last release Andhadhun a fortnight ago, plays the  lead.

Vipul Shah’s Namaste England is the breezy follow-up to the 2007 hit Namaste London with Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra taking the place of Akshay Kumar and  Katrina Kaif.

It looks like a blithe week at the movies this week.
