After winning the hearts of the audience and critics alike, and trending on Netflix for over a month, Once Again starring Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi is now gearing up for a limited theatrical release in Metro Cities through Vkaao, a joint venture of PVR and Book-My-Show for movies on demand.
Witten and Directed by Kanwal Sethi, Once Again is an unusual and mature love story of Tara, a widowed mother who runs a small restaurant and one of her customers, a popular film actor Amar to whom she delivers his daily meals. Tara has never seen him – except on the big screen.
The music composer, Talvin Singh, who has been at the helm of fusion music, and has collaborated with the likes of Madonna, has created an enchanting and melodious soundtrack for the film.
Talking about the film’s theatrical release by Vkaao, Writer-director of Once Again Kanwal Sethi, says, “Once Again is a lyrical ode to the fundamental and basic human emotions including love. Besides focusing on aspects such as loneliness in the urban cities, it depicts a story that resonates with everyone. This has reflected through the responses received by the film so far. I am extremely happy about the film’s release through Vkaao and positive that theatrical audiences will also identify and relate with the film.”
Shefali Shah, the lead actor of Once Again who was extremely delighted with the theatrical release of the film said, “The film has many nuances which are so delicate that they’re meant to be seen on a big screen to soak in all the flavours. So … go watch Once Again on the big screen.”

Till now, Once Again has received overwhelmingly positive responses and I am confident that it will garner similar responses with its theatrical release.
