Kai Po Che

Considering that the film has no known established stars, Abhishek Kapoor's youth-fest "Kai Po Che!", detailing the criss-crossing luck of three youngsters on the threshold of their lives, has elicited an exceptional confidence level in its producers UTV Motion Pictures.

The film was screened at a world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival Feb 13, almost two weeks ahead of its worldwide release this Friday.

"UTV's faith in the product paid off. They took a big chance by screening the film at Berlin just weeks ahead of the worldwide release. Anything could have gone wrong. Negative reviews could have filtered back. But UTV, bolstered by the unexpected success of Remo d'Souza's 'ABCD: AnyBody Can Dance' last week, showed the film at Berlin to a receptive audience," said a source close to the project.

Now, in an even more audacious display of confidence in the product, the producers decided to hold the film's Mumbai premiere Monday.

"Suicidal confidence, I'd say," says a filmmaker.

"It's just not correct to show your film to a preview audience so much in advance. Thursday evening is when premieres happen. Remember what happened to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Saawariya'? It was premiered on a Wednesday since Thursday was Diwali.

"SMS messages against the film began pouring in on Wednesday night. By the time the film was released 36 hours after its premiere, the damage was done. The film was written off on release," the filmmaker added.

A member of the "Kai Po Che!" cast commented: "We've no idea why the film is being premiered on a Monday. We're just going along with whatever we're told."

The film is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel "The 3 Mistakes of My Life".

I think they took the risk because they believed in the product they had in their hands. Kai Po Che will rock. All the best to Sushant and the rest of the stars of this film.
