Taapsee Pannu’s Game Over: 7 Reasons Why The Film Will be a Game Changer
Taapsee Pannu’s Game Over is all set to be released soon and here are the reasons why it will be a game changer
Taapsee Pannu's star is on the rise. She has recently been seen in the mystery thriller Badla with Amitabh Bachchan, with whom she had a fantastic working relationship with in Pink as well. Taapsee showed that she could also do well in non-serious films and in the commercially successful masala film Judwaa she was praised as well. She will now be seen in Game Over and here are all the reasons why Taapsee Pannu's upcoming film Game Over will be a hit.
1. Tapsee is no stranger to playing the female hero. She played one in Naam Shabana. As the empowered intelligence officer, she brought in an unexpected quotient of intelligence to her part. She now returns to a territory that is uniquely hers. And expect some brains to go with the balls.
2. Game Over is a cat-and-mouse chase that was designed with Tapsee in mind. Director Ashwin Saravanan would not have made the film without Tapsee whose presence was non-negotiable. Either she was in or the film was out.
3. Audrey Hepburn in Wait until Dark seems the primary source of inspiration for this suspense thriller where a solitary woman is trailed by an unknown assailant, who perhaps doesn’t even exist outside her mind.
4. 2018 gave us some memorable female heroes. In 2019 we haven’t really had any outstanding female heroes except Manikarnika. Tapsee’s character is not just a woman fleeing her tormentor. She represents the dilemma of personal safety and female empowerment that every contemporary woman faces.
5. This is Tapsee in three languages: Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. So she automatically seizes a major part of the film-going audiences’ attention, gives or take the negligible minority which is okay with a Hollywood female heroine like Sophie Turner flexing those action muscles but would rather have the Indian female hero doing more feminine things, like dancing singing and… umm… being seductive.
6. The world has rejected the female super-hero in Dark Phoenix. This is a good time for Tapsee to kick in with her own version of the female hero. Yeah, Ms Pannu. Show them.
7. Oh yes, before we forget. Tapsee’s anti-heroine act in Badla fetched huge revenues at the box office.
The time is right for her to show her action moves in Game Over. We all know how adept she is at being the female Akshay Kumar in Baby and Naam Shabana.
