Bachelor Party is not similar to The Hangover: Amal Neerad

Apart from the few boys-will-be-boys scenes, director Amal Neerad says Bachelor Party has nothing in common with the Hollywood flick

Amal Neerad's Bachelor Party is undoubtedly a film that targets the youth, especially men. With the online community debating whether the film's theme is similar to the Hollywood raunchy comedy The Hangover, director Amal clear the air.

"Bachelor Party's nothing similar to The Hangover. The flick might have few boys-will-be-boys, raunchy scenes, but that doesn't mean it only targets the male audience. It's got all elements of an entertainer and like its title suggests, it's about a bunch of bachelors having a blast," says the director.

While he has just completed work on this, Amal has already begun work on the pre-production of the Mammootty- Prithviraj-starrer Arivaal Chuttika Nakshatram (ACN), which he hopes will go on floors by the end of this year.

"It's a vintage thriller set in the 1940s; so the pre-production work has to be on a massive scale," he says, referring to the artificial sets and background work. "The next gargantuan step is to match the dates of two of Mollywood's busiest stars - Mammootty and Prithviraj."

Ask him if the period flick will also have its share of his signature stylised scenes as seen in his previous flicks Big B, Sagar Alias Jacky: Reloaded and Anwar, and Amal says, "I have never tried to deliberately bring in stylised scenes. That just invariably happens when you are directing films in the same genre. This is also one of the reasons why ACN will be a different venture altogether," says the director.

The year marks another milestone for Amal, who has turned producer. "I loved the journey as it kept me on my toes all the time. Right from designing the posters to the distribution of the film, it makes one get totally involved," he says.
