Scheduled to hit theaters on December 21, just in time for the Christmas weekend, this film promises to be the perfect blend of entertainment, emotion, and a touch of comedy.
Dunki explores the intriguing concept of "Donkey Flight," an unconventional method of entering foreign countries like Canada, the UK, and the USA. Shah Rukh Khan, in the lead role, shared his insights into the plot, stating, "It deals with going out, finding a future for yourself, but loving your home the most. It is about homecoming. That, no matter where you live in the world, it is always the heart’s yearning to come back home."
Led by the charismatic Shah Rukh Khan, Dunki boasts an ensemble cast including Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Boman Irani, Vikram Kochhar, Anil Grover, Satish Shah, Dia Mirza, and Parikshit Sahni. Together, they weave a heartwarming tale of friendship that is bound to leave a lasting impression on the audience.
With a reported budget of Rs 85 crore, Dunki has set high expectations for itself. After factoring in print and publicity costs, the film's total expenditure stands at a whopping Rs 120 crore. Produced by Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, in collaboration with Jio Studios and Rajkumar Hirani Films, Dunki promises to be a visual spectacle.
As the 'Badshah' of Bollywood graces the screen for the third time in 2023, Dunki offers a unique narrative. Shah Rukh Khan's portrayal of a soldier adds a new dimension to his versatile repertoire. However, not every collaboration guarantees success, as noted by critic Shubhra Gupta, who describes the film as "mostly a crashing bore." Will Dunki live up to the expectations, or is it a miss for the superstar and Rajkumar Hirani? Only time will tell.
