October is a romantic drama starring Varun Dhawan, Banita Sandhu and Gitanjali Rao in lead roles. Varun Dhawan plays the role of Danish “Dan” Walia : A hotel management trainee who starts from the lowest level in a hotel and quickly moves up the ladder because of his career obsessed attitude. Varun Dhawan is a good actor, judge him for movies like Badlapur, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania not for Judwa or Main Tera hero. I think Varun will surely pull off a serious role like Dan.
Banita Sandhu is debuting with the lead role as Shiuli in October, she is a co worker and a classmate of Dan. And by the looks of it is also the love interest/secret admirer of Dan. Shiuli is named after a flower in bengal, a night-flowering jasmine also called as parijat. The tree is sometimes called “tree of sorrow” because it blossoms during moonlight and doesn’t wait for the sunrise it sheds before it. Banita’s character is in a vegetative state and the name Shiuli will have a major connection as the flower appears in the title and everywhere across the trailer.
October is directed by Shoojit Sircar who is a well known director in Bollywood and has movie like Yahaan (2005), Madras Cafe (2013) and Piku (2015) to his name. The music is by National Film Award winner Shantanu Moitra who has composed for movies like Parineeta (2005), 3 Idiots (2009) etc.
October is getting released on 13th April 2018 across India.
