August will be the season for Bollywood movie sequels. Gadar 2, starring Sunny Deol and Amisha Patel, opens on August 11. If OMG Oh My God 2’s censorship issues end in time, the actor starring Akshay Kumar will also hit theaters on the same Friday, taking advantage of Independence Day midweek. ‘Dream Girl 2’ will hit theaters on August 25th, starring Ayushman Khurana and Ananya Pandey. But this time around, the makers of the medium-sized film Goomer decided to try their luck again in August.
Goomaa, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Saiyami Kah and Shabana Azmi, will hit theaters on August 18, sources told Bollywood Hungama. Directed by R. Balki, scheduled for theatrical release. An official announcement will be made shortly, followed by a brief but effective marketing campaign of his.
There is no information about the distributor of this film yet. However, sources say all these aspects have been taken into consideration, and the producers are making it to a sizeable number of screens, despite the release amid other significant film releases in August. I am confident that it will.
Goomer is the story of a cricketer who, after struggling with injuries, decides to follow his dreams and learns to play the sport with his left hand. Abhishek Bachchan describes the role of coaches and their role in inspiring disabled cricketers to become champions. Shabana Azmi plays Saiyami Kar’s cricket-obsessed grandmother in this film that also stars Angad Bedi. Amitabh Bachchan also makes a cameo in the film.
Big B and R Balki love each other very much. This megastar has collaborated with filmmakers on various films. He has made special appearances in films in which he has not starred, such as ‘Ki & Ka’ (2016), ‘Pad Man’ (2018) and ‘Chup’ (2022). Meanwhile, Abhishek had previously collaborated with R. Balki on Paa (2009).
Ghoomer will premiere in Australia ahead of its theatrical release. It was selected as the opening film of the Melbourne Indian Film Festival (IFFM), which opens on August 11.
