When a film becomes a hit, it’s quite common for the makers to develop it into a franchise. After all, they want to capitalise on the former’s success. However, it’s not often that a sequel is made a decade and a half after the success of the first movie. That’s what sets writer-filmmaker Anubhav Sinha’s Tum Bin 2, featuring Aditya Seal, Neha Sharma and Aashim Gulati, apart.
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha says he is facing issues as far as cash is concerned in his personal life, but he is sure his forthcoming release Tum Bin 2 won’t suffer due to the demonetisation move by the government. Like any commoners, I am affected by demonetisation, but I am hopeful about my film. It won’t suffer at the box office.
The first outing, Tum Bin, was a surprise hit when it released in 2001. Backed by an excellent soundtrack, the romantic drama was loved by all and fared well at the box office despite being pitted against biggies. It remains to be seen how the audience reacts to Tum Bin 2, especially since it is releasing 15 years after its prequel.
Young singer-composer Ankit Tiwari has created a soundtrack that not only boasts of melodious songs like Ishq Mubarak, Dekh Lena and Dil Nawaziyaan but also caters to the young audience. Moreover, the producers have recreated late Jagjit Singh’s song Koi Fariyad from Tum Bin as Teri Fariyaad for the sequel with supporting vocals by Rekha Bhardwaj.
