Mixed reactions to 'Singh Is Kinng' in Toronto
15th Sept 2008 09.30 IST
Blockbuster at home, Bollywood movie Singh Is Kinng drew mixed reactions at the just concluded Toronto International Film Festival.
It appears that the film, starring Akshay Kumar , Katrina Kaif , Om Puri and Sonu Sood , didn’t go well with critics in this democratic North American nation. The reason being the entry of an out-and-out commercial movie in the film festival mostly dominated by art films.
However, TIFF co-director Cameron Bailey strongly defended his decision to invite 'Singh is Kinng' to Toronto.
"The idea is to bring the full diversity of Indian cinema to audiences in Toronto. People here are familiar with India's regional cinema but commercial Hindi films haven't had the sort of exposure it deserves. It is an integral part of the Indian cinema landscape," he said.
In fact, in the course of a party hosted by Percept Picture Company, Akshay revealed that he was keen to have Priyadarshan's comic drama Bhool Bhulaiyaa included in the official Toronto film festival list last year.
But, the organisers of North America's premier film festival rejected the request, the veteran actor said.
It may be mentioned here that mainstream Mumbai cinema was totally blanked out by Toronto last year although the selection did include Rituparno Ghosh's The Last Lear , starring Amitabh Bachchan and Preity Zinta .
