JOHN DAY maker moves to his next a thriller

By Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

Randeep Hooda and Naseeruddin Shah starrer JOHN DAY didn't really cover much distance for debutant director Ahishor Solomon when the film released a few weeks back. However the filmmaker has moved on after seeing GRAND MASTI, which released on the same day as JOHN DAY, staking its claim for supremacy at the box office.

His next film has been tentatively, though tantalizingly titled BAS%#*D.

Confirms the filmmaker, "Yes, it is one of the films that I am looking at bringing on floors. While JOHN DAY was more of a dark and intense drama, BAS%#*D is going to be a thriller."

While he is tight lipped about the film in question, he doesn't regret making his debut with JOHN DAY which was an extremely violent song-less affair. Though quite a few filmmakers prefer to start with a safe outing, he has been dabbling with subjects as varied as JOHN DAY and BAS%#*D which don't come across as the kind that would be pleasant feel good safe outings.

"But then how do you define safe," questions Ahishor, "There are so many so-called safe films that sink at the box office. I don't think packaging a film with six songs can make a film a hit. Unless a film connects with the audience, it won't click. Decades ago Yash Chopra had directed Rajesh Khanna in a song-less whodunit ITTEFAQ and the film was a success."

No wonder, the films that he has on the anvil aren't looking at following a formulaic approach. Other than BAS%#*D, he is also giving finishing touches to the script of a road movie.

"Yes, that story is set in a completely different genre. It is about how an individual discovers different things in life as the journey leads to one's destination," says Ahishor in a philosophical tone before signing off.
