Bachelor Party, which releases on January 26, is a laugh riot, says Diganth Manchale
When actor-filmmaker Rakshit Shetty announced his new production called Bachelor Party, which would be the directorial debut of Abhijit Mahesh, he had said that it would be a fun film that will have audiences in splits. Diganth, who plays one of the leads in the film that is set to come to theatres on January 26, could not agree more. Abhijit’s greatest strength, says Diganth, is in writing amazingly funny one-liners, many of which had him in splits during the script narration. Now that he’s has brought this to the screen, Diganth assures that audiences will have a rollicking good time in theatres. The guarantee is that the film will be a laugh riot, he says, adding that Bachelor Party’s highlight is its humour.
The film, meanwhile, is widely considered as Kannada cinema’s answer to the Hollywood hit Hangover. Bachelor Party too revolves around the adventures and misadventures that play out during a bachelor party in Thailand, but Diganth says that audiences should not jump to conclusions that the film will be exactly like Hangover. The actor reckons that people ought to come to theatres, watch the film and decide for themselves if it is inspired by any other movie. He adds that Abhijit’s film does not have a target audience and that it will appeal to all, as amid all the wisecracks, there are pertinent life lessons as well.
Bachelor Party, incidentally, was initially announced with Diganth and Rishab Shetty along with Achyuth Kumar. Rishab, however, had to excuse himself later on, after the phenomenal success of Kantara, which pushed him to focusing on the prequel, Kantara: Chapter 1. Loose Mada Yogi was cast in the role instead, his first collaboration with Diganth. The film follows the duo, as they, head to Bangkok to attend a pal’s (Shine Shetty) bachelor party.
