All the instalments of the popular movie series “Golmaal” may have been blockbusters, but filmmaker Rohit Shetty admits the second part of the franchise was a bad film.
Released in 2008, “Golmaal Returns” was a sequel to “Golmaal” and featured Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Tusshar Kapoor, among others.
Shetty, who helmed all the three “Golmaal” films and has directed movies like “Dilwale” and “Singham”, says he knew these films had some problem in them.
When asked about what he does when a film doesn’t work, Rohit said,”We rectify what all went wrong. My whole team sits (and introspects), even it is a hit. Like ‘Golmaal Returns’ was the biggest hit of the year. But we knew it was a crap film.
“In ‘Singham 2’ we knew the villain went wrong. ‘Singham’ is a cult film but in (part) two the villain’s character went wrong. In ‘Dilwale’ the whole Shah Rukh-Kajol story went wrong,” he added.
The director was speaking at a panel discussion on Sunday at the ongoing 18th Jio MAMI Mumbai International Film Festival.
According to Shetty, he gets a fair idea if a film is going to work or not once the shooting is complete.
“Once I’ve completed a film, I get a feeling whether it’ll work or not. Since my films are hardcore commercial, I am catering to a particular audience so you start getting a feeling, that it is not going to work on that level.
“You should be prepared for what’s going to happen. I get a feeling that something is going to go wrong,” he added.
