Aamir Khan watches Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari at a cinema hall
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan on Tuesday stepped out to watch Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari at a theatre. Starring Manoj Bajpayee, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is one of the major movies to hit screens post the reopening of cinema halls.
Aamir had earlier tweeted that he was on his way to the theatre. He wrote, “On my way to see Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari in a Cinema Hall. Really looking forward to the big screen experience, after so long!”
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave one and a half stars to Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari. In her review, she wrote, “Is the film meant to be a social commentary on the tensions between north Indian ‘interlopers’ and Bombay locals? The hostility was real, and still exists. But are we meant to laugh when it is alluded to in this clunky manner? So many good artists are laid to waste in the process: it’s not just the wonderful Bajpayee who so rarely gets to do a light-hearted caper that the film does injustice to, even the seasoned Kapoor and Pilgaonkar, and Manoj and Seema, are wasted.”
Hollywood star Tom Cruise had in August watched Christopher Nolan’s Tenet at a theatre. He later shared his love for the film and the big screen experience. The actor posted a clip on social media where we saw him posing in front of Tenet’s poster. He said to the camera, “Here we are, back to the movies.” Post the screening, Tom gave a standing ovation and clapped whilst saying, “Great to be back in a movie theater everybody.” When someone asked if he liked the film, Cruise replied, “I loved it.”
