Sumeet Vyas and Mantra starrer High Jack, which was earlier slated to release on April 20 is now set to hit the screens on May 18. The makers of the film Phantom Films announced the new release date on their official twitter account along with the poster and captioned it, "The madness has touched base! #HighJack is all set for release on 18th May. @vyas_sumeet @MrAkvarious @mantramugdh @SonnalliSeygall @NatashaRastogi5 @sarangsathaye @priyanshu29 @TheSarthakKakar @taaruk @adhaar88 @Viu_IN"
Interestingly, the trippy stoner comedy will lock horns with the Hollywood film Deadpool 2 at the box office. Since the first part performed well in India, the second installment is expected to open with a good response. The Hindi version of Deadpool is dubbed by gen-next star Ranveer Singh, which will further boost its business at the ticket windows. As both the films belong to the same genre, it'll be interesting to see how they will perform at the box office.
Talking about High Jack, it revolves around a bunch of first-time hijackers, trying to hijack a plane. The first-timers along with the passengers accidentally get high, which results in a series of very funny, whacky series of events. Apart from Mantra and Sumeet, the film also stars Sonnalli Sehgal, Sarthak Kakar, Kumud Mishra, Radhika Bangia, Priyanshu Painyuli and Adhaar Khurana in pivotal roles. Produced by Phantom films in association with Viu, High Jack marks the directorial debut of Akarsh Khurana. So out of these two films? Which is your pick for the first-day-first-show?
