Bollywood is gearing up for another summer biggie with Umesh Shukla’s ALL IS WELL which brings together seasoned veteran RISHI KAPOOR & talented ABHISHEK BACHCHAN after their last memorable camraderie in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s DELHI 6 and it seems that the critics and the artists are giving another thumbs up to this biggie. After a season of tear jerkers (BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN), action ( BAHU BALI & BROTHERS) and mystery ( DRISHYAM), Bollywood’s latest offering is an absolute comedy film with veteran RISHI KAPOOR, well known for his dialogue delivery and comic timing, and ABHISHEK BACHCHAN, who has excelled in films like BOL BACHCHAN & HAPPY NEW YEAR, and both have immense respect and appreciation towards each other. Director Umesh Shukla, who earlier made the super hit ‘OH MY GOD’, is promising a comedy road movie and with ASIN & SUPRIYA PATHAK, the film sure looks interesting and could be another hit of the season!!!
