Ittefaq is jointly produced by Shah Rukh khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and BR Studios – the makers of the original film. Ittefaq is directed by Abhay Chopra, grandson of BR Chopra. Of the film, Karan Johar earlier told news agency PTI, “I have seen it three to four times and I am a big fan of it. I also saw this one (the remake) while the editing was going on… It is a true adaptation, it is not a straight copy. It is different from the original.”
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5. “It is a thriller that remains watchable without being a consistently pulsating, heart-pounding experience. Watch Ittefaq because the film reveals a great deal about how Bollywood filmmaking has changed over the past five decades. If that isn’t a big enough draw, watch it for nonpareil Akshaye Khanna. He overshadows everyone – and everything – in Ittefaq.
Ittefaq released along with Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Ragnarok, which has made Rs 40 crore so far.
