Director: Happy 'Club 60' standing on word of mouth
Filmmaker Sanjay Tripathi is happy that his directorial debut "Club 60" has got a positive response and that word of mouth is helping the film in getting more viewership.
Featuring Farooque Sheikh, Satish Shah, Tinnu Anand, Raghuveer Yadav, Sarika, the film was released this Friday along with "R...Rajkumar"
Tripathi told IANS: "Yes, I am extremely happy that such a small film is standing on word of mouth. People are watching the film and they are happy with the content. I was not sure how the film will do commercially, we just had 200 screens. But it's great that the response has been outstanding."
According to a film critic, a story of aging and despair dappled by dashes of warmth and humour, "Club 60" is a treasure house of veteran actors at their luminous best lending to the film a kind of emphatic excellence.
Tripathi wrapped up the film in just Rs.5.5 crore and hopes the makers recover the cost.
"It is a very small budget film. We made the film on a budget of Rs.5.5 crore and we are hoping to recover the cost. The response has been encouraging, so I feel we will do well," he said.
