Shahid Kapoor’s Haider or Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang-which one will you watch?

Shahid Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Bang Bang, Haider

The two stars are all set to collide on with their forthcoming releases. Will the trade and audience collections be affected by the same? Let us find out…

Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor are all set to clash at the box office this Gandhi Jayanti. Bang Bang and Haider will be released on the very same weekend of October 2. Although, people may think that Hrithik is a bigger star than Shahid, but for all obvious reasons the trailer of Haider proved that Shahid will definitely give a tough competition to Hrithik. So who will emerge winner in this race? Lets talk to our experts.

Trade analyst Akshay Rathi informs, “Haider had announced its release date a year back, while Bang Bang kept on getting delayed and they finally finished the film and decided to release it on October 2. So Haider is at no fault. Also, the two films will have a very different audience base. I don’t think trade will get affected, because people who will watch Haider will not be able to stand Bang Bang and vice versa. However, UTV and FOX Star Studios are backing the two projects respectively and, therefore, they will make sure that the two films get enough number of screens to release. Haider is more for the classy audience whereas Bang Bang, which is a remake of Knight and Day, will be more for the masala loving single screen audience.”

Trade analyst Komal Nahta however has a different perspective on the same. He informs, “Trade will surely get affected. It is true that both the films have different audience base and will cater to them respectively but there will be a huge chunk of audience who might want to watch both the films. Thus they will be left to choose between the two and that will definitely affect the opening day collections.”

So BollywoodLifers, now that you have heard the news from both sides of the coins, we leave it onto you to decide as to which film to watch and which to give a miss on October 2.

    Middle aged people will watch haider..young people will watch Bang Bang

    • Cattypuss

      I think you might be surprised :) ) I am not young and I am going to watch this one as soon as I can get my paws on it. Living in Australia and no access to Hindi cinema I have to wait until it comes out on DVD. But the movie I am really panting on is Mohen-jodaro!! That is going to smash all records as Ashu has put many years of research into this subject.Has picked the right man for the role and if he chooses the right leading lady there will be no stopping those two. Hrithik&Ashu have a great synergy and will give India another masterpiece.

      • lovable person

        I think haider film will be better than bang bang..
        Rithik need to stop doing remakes film…. Bollywood seriously needs to use their own brain..

        • Cattypuss

          Bang Bang has been substantially reworked-it’s not a faithful remake of Day and Night.At least let’s see how it goes….and as for Mohen-jodaro that is a fresh subject. Ashu has been on a long journey with this project.Nearly 4 years of study,research&collaboration with archeologists who are expert on the Indus civilization. It’s taken him 2 years to develop a script that would incorporate a romance into the subject of Mohen-jodaro. He hopes this movie will help save the region from further deterioration& bring it to world attention.As a world heritage listed site it’s a given that I want this movie to really shine. As a personal observation I have noticed that Hrithik & many Indians seem to be big Tom Cruise fans. I honestly can’t stand the guy…but I guess each to their own.

        • arohi

          hrithik is unbeatable, better from langur khans. but yeah btown should stop making remakes. there is no creativity

      • arohi

        which actress will work in moen jo daro??? do u know?? plz tell

        • Cattypuss

          The actress chosen to act opposite Hrithik is a girl called Pooja Hedge. I think she is a former Miss India and she started her career in modelling. This is her first major role with such a big star as Hrithik Roshan. Will be interesting to see what she can do with her role. :) )

        • Superrr

          Hrithik And Pooja

  • N

    Both movies are different genres , should not be competition for each other

  • Amar

    Haider looks electrifying and brilliantly adapted by Bhardwaj. Setting the film in Kashmir was an intelligent choice. Looking forward to see the last of VB’s trilogy.

    i prefer bang bang over haider…….becoz look like in trailor shahid has no best expression he need for the role…..and other hand still bang bang trailor is not release….and i would like to pay on hrithik thn shahid…..

    • arohi

      you cant judge any film from trailer. saawariya trailer was praised but film turn out to be crap. and plz hrithik and shahid both are great actors. shahid never got such opportunity to prove himself.

  • Philm Phreak

    All articles and media doesn’t have sense
    (i) comparing two actors on a totally different hiatus.
    (ii) comparing commercial action flicks and critically challenged drama.
    (iii) novel adaptations and movies purely written for commercial action and glamour.

    So please ignore these articles.

    Bang bang is commercially very big …no comparision with Haider which could be a dark psychological shakespere adaptation which will sure be winning critics hearts. Although I am expecting the former to Bang 200 crores gross if average like EkThaTiger. if successful may go beyond.

    • arohi

      bang bang will rule box office and haider will rule critics

  • bhargav

    bang bang all the way yar

  • truth
