But the big question is – will director Sajid Khan be able to bounce back and deliver ‘9 Times The Fun’ as guaranteed in the promos?
Our in-house expert and ace astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts the fate of this Fox Star and Pooja Entertainment joint production:
“The title HUMSHAKALS adds up to Number 33 – this octave of Number 6 (Venus) is a fortunate number. It promises the assistance and association of those of rank and position with one’s plans; it also denotes gain through love and the opposite sex. It is a favorable number when it comes out in relation to future events,” explains Bhavikk.
“As per the numerological meaning derived, it seems the film will definitely appeal to its target audience simply looking for madcap entertainment and those who just want to enjoy and have some ‘serious’ laughs without thinking too much” predicts Bhavikk.
“Plus, the year 2014 which adds up to Number 7 (Ketu) is likely to prove lucky for most Number 1, 2, 4 and 7 people, places, dates, names etc. and the film’s release date – 20th June 2014 would only prove auspicious in this case” he adds.
“Also, most actors from its ensemble cast – Saif Ali Khan (16th August 1970), Ram Kapoor (1st September 1973), Bipasha Basu (7th January 1979) and Esha Gupta (28th November 1985) all fall directly under this category; and hence are likely to benefit the highest”.
“On the other hand, Riteish Deshmukh’s (17th December 1978) luck in his 36th year is strong enough to hold on to its own and so is Tamannaah’s (21st December 1989)” he adds further.
“Last but not the least; co-producer Vashu Bhagnani (April 19) again comes in the 1, 2, 4, 7 bracket; whereas director Sajid Khan’s (23rd November 1971) ‘destiny’ number is 7 (Ketu) and he being in his 43rd year; he is ‘destined’ to deliver a box-office ‘hit’ this time” signs off Bhavikk on a positive note.
