Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi-starrer Once Again, an unusual love story, will have a limited theatrical release in metro cities on December 8.
The movie, written and directed by Kanwal Sethi, was released via Netflix earlier. “Once Again is a lyrical ode to the fundamental and basic human emotions including love. Besides focusing on aspects such as loneliness in the urban cities, it depicts a story that resonates with everyone,” Kanwal said.
“This has reflected through the responses received by the film so far. I am extremely happy about the film’s release through Vkaao and positive that theatrical audiences will also identify and relate with the film,” he added. The release through Vkaao, a joint venture of PVR and Book My Show for movies on demand, will begin with a special screening on December 8 in PVR Juhu, followed by a question-and-answer session with the cast. The film tells a mature love story of Tara, a widowed mother who runs a small restaurant and one of her customers, a popular film actor Amar to whom she delivers his daily meals. Tara has never seen him — except on the big screen.
The film also features Rasika Dugal, Bhagwan Tiwari, Bidita Bag and Priyanshu Painyuli. Shefali is delighted with the theatrical release of the film. She says, “The film has many nuances which are so delicate that they’re meant to be seen on a big screen to soak in all the flavours. So, go watch Once Again on the big screen.” The Indo-German film is produced by Sanjay Gulati and Neufilm in collaboration with ZDF/ARTE. Gulati is confident the movie will garner a positive response with its theatrical release.
