    Rangrezz is all set to release on March 21.

Hours before the film releases and a day before the reviews appear, here’s what you can expect from this week’s release(s)…
Film: Rangrezz
Cast: Jackky Bhagnani (last seen in Ajab Gazabb Love; 2012), Priya Anand (last seen in English Vinglish; 2012) and Rajpal Yadav (last seen in Zila Ghaziabad) among others.
Storyline: When a friend’s love life is endangered, his buddies decide to intervene and remind him on numerous instances how his ‘friends’ will do what ‘friends’ do and be his true ‘friends’ and save his girlfriend because that’s what ‘friends’ do. The film is the official Hindi remake of the successful Tamil release, Naadodigal (2009). It has previously been remade in Kannada, Telugu, Bengali and Malayalam.
Director:  Priyadarshan (Last directed Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal; 2012)
Music: Sajid-Wajid (Three songs in the soundtrack have been composed by Sajid-Wajid, and two have been created by south composer Sundar C Babu, who also worked on the original Tamil film. The album has not received great reviews, but has earned mention for its devotional songs.)

Controversies/stunts
When you’re producing a film for your son, ensuring there’s no controversy that hinders the marketing strategy of your production is the least that you can do. 

Marketing/hype
Father-producer Vashu Bhagnani planned this film’s release on the day school exams end. He spent crores buying the rights of Korean popstar Psy’s track ‘Opa Gangnam style’ only to ruin the song with dance steps that one wouldn’t try even in the bathroom lest the mirror cracks. The makers have tried everything to keep the film in the news, but there’s only that much music you can make with a faulty instrument.

Our assessment
We lost our hearing after the lead actor used the word “dost” for the fourth time in the first few minutes of the promo. The choreography in the song Gangnam style blinded us. And the rest of the promo ruined whatever was left of our senses. We’re still recovering.
For the final verdict, look out for Anupama Chopra’s review tomorrow in the Watch & Listen page of  Hindustan Times
