The Gamble!

three line tales, week 266: a plane taking off with a car on the snowy runway

AK was known for rebellious temperament, who always enjoyed swimming against the tide.

Against everyone’s advice, he invested a huge sum of money in an extravagant commercial Bollywood movie, with only a male cast.

Would his gamble pay off?

    I think there are 1-2 movies of this description. Thanks for joining in, Radhika!

      Reena, I remember ek rukha hua faisla. While there are a few English movies, can’t recall a typical Bollywood masala commercial cinema with an all male cast. Do share if you know.

        These are movies without a female lead, but female actors must have been therehttps://m.dailyhunt.in/news/india/english/laughingcolours+english-epaper-laughcole/15+hit+bollywood+movies+that+did+not+have+any+female+lead-newsid-86698311

    There is a short film with only male cast and one male cast, a youtube channel I hav noticed like that lot of short films in past with just him – “Jumpcuts” something like this will definitely pay off ☺️

      Well, I hope it does pay off for AK. While there are many in other categories with an all male cast, I don’t think there are any in the regular bollywood commercial masala movies. Hence I felt it was a huge risk he was taking

        It will be a huge risk when they fail to deliver the content the way audience expect. if you could see the Jumpcuts short films I get a small light of hope, that this might work ☺️.

    Most of the all-male movies I have seen have flashbacks to memories of the women they left behind and are missing! ❤

      Yes Cheryl. While there are a few English movies with all male cast, I don’t think we have a mainstream movie in Hindi with only male actors. Am not sure if the audiences here will like it 🙂. Hence I felt it was a huge gamble taken!

    Interesting take here Radhika… not sure the male cast will take off but could land the plane. Hope it doesn’t crash and burn. Good job!💖
